Item 4.02 Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Report.


In connection with the preparation of its financial statements as of September 30, 2021, the management of CC Neuberger Principal Holdings III (the “Company”), in consultation with its advisors, identified an error made in certain of its previously issued financial statements, arising from the manner in which, as of the closing of the Company’s initial public offering (the “IPO”), the Company classified its Class A ordinary shares (the “Public Shares”) subject to possible redemption. The Company previously determined the value of such Public Shares to be equal to the redemption value of such shares, after taking into consideration the terms of the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, under which a redemption cannot result in net tangible assets being less than $5,000,001. Management has now determined, after consultation with its advisors, that the Public Shares underlying the units issued during its IPO can be redeemed or become redeemable subject to the occurrence of future events considered to be outside the Company’s control. Therefore, management has concluded that the redemption value of its Public Shares subject to possible redemption should reflect the possible redemption of all Public Shares. As a result, management has noted a reclassification error related to temporary equity and permanent equity, which has resulted in a restatement of the initial carrying value of the Public Shares subject to possible redemption, with the offset recorded to additional paid-in capital (to the extent available), accumulated deficit and Public Shares.


In connection with the change in presentation for the Public Shares, the Company revised its earnings per share calculation to allocate income and losses shared pro rata between the two classes of shares. This presentation differs from the previously presented method of earnings per share, which was similar to the two-class method.


Therefore, on December 2, 2021, the Company’s management and the audit committee of the Company’s board of directors (the “Audit Committee”), concluded that the Company’s previously issued, (i) unaudited interim financial statements included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2021, filed with the SEC on May 25, 2021; (ii) unaudited interim financial statements included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2021, filed with the SEC on August 16, 2021, and (iii) footnote 2 to the unaudited interim financial statements and Item 4 of Part 1 included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021, filed with the SEC on November 10, 2021 (collectively, the “Affected Periods”), should be restated to report all Public Shares as temporary equity and make other related changes and should no longer be relied upon. As such, the Company will restate its financial statements for the Affected Periods in a Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021 (the “Q3 Form 10-Q/A”), as will be described therein.


None of the above changes will have any impact on its cash position and cash held in the trust account established in connection with the Company’s IPO (the “Trust Account”).


The Company’s management has concluded that in light of the classification error described above, a material weakness exists in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting and that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. The Company’s remediation plan with respect to such material weakness will be described in more detail in the Q3 Form 10-Q.


The Company’s management and the Audit Committee have discussed the matters disclosed in this Current Report on Form 8-K pursuant to this Item 4.02 with WithumSmith+Brown, PC (“Withum”), the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.
