Item 4.02 Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.
(a) On April 12, 2021, the Acting Director of the Division of Corporation Finance and Acting Chief Accountant of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) together issued a statement regarding the accounting and reporting considerations for warrants issued by special purpose acquisition companies entitled Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (the SEC Statement). Specifically, the SEC Statement focused on certain settlement terms and provisions related to certain tender offers following a business combination, which terms are similar to those contained in the warrant agreement governing Gores Holdings VIII, Inc.s (the Company) warrants. In connection with the SEC Statement, the Company revisited its accounting for its warrants, and determined that they should be treated as derivative liabilities pursuant to ASC 815-40 rather than as components of equity.
On June 10, 2021, the Board of Directors (the Board) of the Company, based on the recommendation of the Audit Committee of the Board (the Audit Committee) and after consultation with management and our independent public accountants, KPMG LLP (the Independent Public Accountants), concluded that the Companys audited balance sheet as of March 1, 2021, as reported in the Companys Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 5, 2021 should no longer be relied upon due to the reassessed accounting treatment and changes required to reclassify the Companys warrants as liabilities to align with the guidance issued by the SEC in the SEC Statement. The change in accounting treatment involves only non-cash adjustments and will have no impact on the Companys current or previously reported liquidity, cash flows or revenues. The Company plans to reflect this change in accounting treatment in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 to be filed with SEC.
The Audit Committee and the Companys management have discussed the matters disclosed pursuant to this Item 4.02(a) with the Independent Public Accountants.

Most of these factors are outside the Companys control and are difficult to predict. The Company cautions readers not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. The Company does not undertake or accept any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect any change in its expectations or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
