If the notification relates to a portion of the filing checked above, identify the Item(s) to which the notification relates:




Full name of Registrant: Mallard Acquisition Corp.
Address of principal executive office: 19701 Bethel Church Road, Suite 302
City State and ZIP Code: Cornelius, NC 28031


PART II - RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)


If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed (Check box if appropriate)


  (a) The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;
(b) The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and
  (c) The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12(b)-25(c) has been attached if applicable.







State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period. (Attach extra sheets if needed).


Mallard Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) has determined that it is unable to file, without unreasonable effort and expense, its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 (the “Form 10-Q”) by the prescribed due date because the Company needs additional time to complete its financial statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 and the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm will need additional time to complete its review of such financial statements.


In particular, the Company is assessing its accounting relating to the classification of the Company’s shares of common stock as permanent equity versus temporary equity, including the potential accounting implications of equity classification matters in connection with special purpose acquisition companies such as the Company. The Company currently anticipates that it will file its Form 10-Q within the five-day grace period provided by Exchange Act Rule 12b-25.




(1) Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification:


P. Jeffrey Leck   (813) 407-0444
Name   Telephone Number


(2) Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If answer is no, identify report(s).


☒ Yes  ☐ No


(3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?


☒ Yes  ☐ No


If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.


The Company is required by Part IV, Item (3) of Form 12b-25 to provide as part of this filing an explanation regarding whether the results of operations it expects to report for the period ended September 30, 2021 will reflect significant changes from the Company’s results of operations for the period ended September 30, 2020. Because the Company has not completed its financial statements due to the reasons stated above, the Company is unable to provide a reasonable estimate of its results of operations for the period ended September 30, 2021. Accordingly, the Company cannot at this time estimate what significant changes will be reflected in its results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 as compared to its results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 (or its results of operations from any prior periods), although it is expected that a classification of all of the Company’s shares of common stock as temporary equity may require material changes to the Company’s balance sheet, statement of operations, statement of changes in stockholders’ equity (deficit) and statement of cash flows.
