OneSpaWorld Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: OSW) ("OneSpaWorld," or the "Company"), the pre-eminent global provider of health and wellness services and products on board cruise ships and in destination resorts around the world, announced today in a Current Report on Form 8-K, that as a result of recent guidance issued by the Division of Corporate Finance of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on April 12, 2021 regarding the accounting and financial reporting of warrants issued by SPACs ("the Staff Statement"), it will restate its previously issued consolidated financial statements to change the accounting treatment of its 2019 public and private warrants and 2020 warrants (collectively, the "Warrants"). These consolidated financial statements are included in the Company’s previously filed Form 10-K for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, and the period from March 20, 2019 through December 31, 2019 (the "Successor Period") and the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, June 30, 2020 and 2019, and September 30, 2020 and 2019, included in the Company’s previously filed Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for such periods (together, the "Affected Periods").

The Company has determined that (i) upon issuance on March 19, 2019 of the 2019 private warrants, (ii) upon issuance of the Non-Voting Common Shares on June 12, 2020, and (iii) upon issuance on June 12, 2020 of the 2020 warrants, the warrants should be accounted for as liabilities measured at fair value with non-cash fair value adjustments recorded in the determination of net income (loss) for each reporting period during which Warrants are liabilities. OneSpaWorld made its determination to restate the financial statements covered by the Affected Periods (the "Restatement") based on its consideration of the Staff Statement, independent valuation of the Warrants, and advice of its independent registered public accounting firm and counsel, among other factors.

As a result of the Restatement, it is expected that the Company’s liabilities as of December 31, 2020 and 2019 will increase by between $103 million and $107 million, and $54 million and $58 million, respectively, and its net loss will increase for the year ended December 31, 2020 and the period from March 20, 2019 through December 31, 2019 (Successor) by between $5 million and $9 million, and $18 million and $22 million, respectively.

All estimated amounts contained in this report are preliminary and are subject to change as management completes the Company’s Form 10-K/A. The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm has not audited or reviewed these estimates and ranges. An audit of annual financial statements and/or review of quarterly financial statements could result in material changes to these estimates and ranges. Further details and remediation plans will be included in the Company’s Form 10-K/A.

The Company intends to promptly file restated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020 and the Successor Period from March 20, 2019 through December 31, 2019 in the Form 10-K/A. The relevant unaudited interim financial information for each of the quarters ended during the year ended December 31, 2020 and the 2019 Successor Period also will be restated in the Form 10-K/A.

The Company expects that there will be no impact to its historically reported cash and cash equivalents or adjusted EBITDA attributable to the Affected Periods due to this restatement. In addition, the Company believes that the change in the accounting treatment of the Warrants will have no effect on OneSpaWorld’s current and future business operations, competitive position or business strategy.
