Amendment Description Sports Entertainment Acquisition Corp. (the “Company,” “we”, “our” or “us”) is filing this Annual Report on Form 10-K/A (Amendment No. 2), or this Amendment, to amend and restate certain items in its Annual Report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 on Form 10-K originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 30, 2021 and the first amendment thereto filed on Form 10-K/A, originally filed with the SEC on March 31, 2021 (together, the “Original Filing”) to restate our financial statements as of and for the period ended December 31, 2020 (the “Affected Period”) included in the Original Filing (the “Original Financial Statements”). The restatement primarily relates to consideration of the factors in determining whether to classify contracts that may be settled in an entity’s own stock as equity of the entity or as an asset or liability in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity. In the Original Financial Statements, the Company classified the public warrants and private placement warrants issued in connection with the Company’s initial public offering (the “Warrants”) as equity instruments. Upon further consideration of the rules and guidance, management of the Company concluded that the Warrants are precluded from equity classification. As a result, the Warrants should be recorded as liabilities on the balance sheet and measured at fair value at inception and on a recurring basis in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of operations. As a result, on May 27, 2021, after consultation with WithumSmith+Brown, PC, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, the Company’s management concluded that the Original Financial Statements should no longer be relied upon and are to be restated in order to correct the classification error.
