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

(a) In connection with the preparation of the financial statements of Churchill Capital Corp VII, a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), as of November 10, 2021, the Company's management became aware of informal communications between the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission and certain other registrants and their independent registered public accounting firms. Once aware of these communications, the Company's management re-evaluated the Company's application of Accounting Standards Codification Topic 480, "Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity" ("ASC 480") to its accounting classification of the redeemable shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the "Public Shares") issued as part of the units sold in the Company's initial public offering (the "Initial Public Offering"). The Company had previously classified a portion of the Public Shares in permanent equity because, although the Company did not specify a maximum redemption threshold, the Company's amended and restated certificate of incorporation provides that the Company will not redeem the Public Shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001. Based on such re-evaluation, the Company's management determined that, in accordance with the ASC 480, redemption provisions not solely within the control of the Company would require common stock subject to redemption to be classified outside of permanent equity and therefore all of the Public Shares subject to redemption should be classified outside of permanent equity.

On November 15, 2021, the Company's management and the audit committee of the Company's board of directors (the "Audit Committee"), after consultation with Marcum LLP ("Marcum"), the Company's independent registered public accounting firm,concluded that the Company's previously issued (i) audited balance sheet as of February 17, 2021 included in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on February 23, 2021, (ii) unaudited interim financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2021 included in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 24, 2021 and (iii) unaudited interim financial statements as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 included in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 16, 2021 (collectively, the "Affected Periods"), in each case, should be restated to classify all of the Public Shares as temporary equity and should no longer be relied upon. As a result, the Company has restated its financial statements for the Affected Periods in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 filed with the SEC on November 17, 2021 (the "Q3 Form 10-Q"), as described therein.

The Company does not expect any of the above changes will have any impact on its cash position and cash held in the trust account established in connection with the Initial Public Offering.

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 is described in more detail in the Q3 Form 10-Q.

The Audit Committee and the Company's management have discussed the matters disclosed in this Current Report on Form 8-K with Marcum, the Company's independent registered public accounting firm.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
