PART III – NARRATIVE
State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
Fisker Inc. (the “Company”) was unable, without unreasonable effort and expense, to complete the preparation of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 (the “Report”) by February 29, 2024 due to the circumstances described below.
As previously disclosed in the earnings release furnished as Exhibit 99 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on February 29, 2024 (the “Preliminary Earnings Release”), the Company requires additional time to finalize the Company’s consolidated financial statements, finalize the assessment of its internal control over financial reporting and related disclosures, and complete its procedures for the Report. The Company has experienced a change in key accounting personnel and, as a result, lacks a sufficient number of professionals with an appropriate level of accounting knowledge, training, and experience to appropriately analyze, record, and disclose accounting matters timely and accurately.
The Company disclosed certain material weaknesses in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2023. In addition to the previously disclosed material weaknesses, the Company has identified a material weakness in revenue and the related balance sheet accounts, which will be disclosed in the Report. The Company will continue to evaluate its internal control over financial reporting and may identify additional material weaknesses as it completes its procedures on the Report.
As previously disclosed in the Preliminary Earnings Release, the Company expects its capital expenditures and working capital requirements to decrease during 2024 and beyond as it enters the second year of production of the Fisker Ocean. The Company’s business plan is highly dependent on the successful transition to its new Dealer Partner model in 2024. Furthermore, to the extent the Company’s current resources are insufficient to satisfy its requirements over the next 12 months, the Company will need to seek additional equity or debt financing, and there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in these efforts. If the financing is not available, or if the terms of financing are less desirable than the Company expects, the Company may be forced to decrease its planned level of investment in product development, scale back its operations, including further headcount reductions, and reduce production of the Fisker Ocean, which could have an adverse impact on the Company’s business and financial prospects. As a result, the Company expects to conclude and disclose in the Report that there is substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.
The Company expects to file the Report by March 15, 2024, the expiration of the extension period.

Risk Factors” of the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, as updated by its other filings with the SEC.
