PART III – NARRATIVE

State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period. (Attached Extra Sheets if Needed)

Thayer Ventures Acquisition Corporation (the “Company”) has determined that it is unable, without unreasonable effort or expense, to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2021 (the “Q1 2021 Form 10-Q”) by the prescribed due date for the reasons described below.

As previously disclosed, in light of the Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”) (the “Staff Statement”) issued by the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 12, 2021, the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors, together with management, has determined that the Company’s financial statements and related notes for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on February 26, 2021 (the “Original Form 10-K”), should be restated in order to classify the Company’s warrants as liabilities pursuant to Financial Accounting and Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification Topic 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging, Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity.

The Company is working diligently to complete the Q1 2021 Form 10-Q as soon as possible; however, given the scope of the process for evaluating the impact of the Staff Statement on the Company’s financial statements and the Company’s management’s focus on preparing an amendment to the Original Form 10-K containing restated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company is unable to complete and file the Q1 2021 Form 10-Q by the required due date of May 17, 2021 without unreasonable effort and expense. The Company does, however, expect to file such report by May 24, 2021, in accordance with Rule 0-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
