Pre-Merger ACON STWO financials now updated for regulatory compliance

WILSONVILLE, Ore., December 07, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ESS Tech, Inc. ("ESS" or the "Company") (NYSE:GWH), a U.S. manufacturer of long-duration batteries for utility-scale and commercial energy storage applications, announced today that it has successfully completed the restatement of the legacy financial filings from Acon S2 Acquisition Corp. ("ACON") to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

"The restatements required addressing certain accounting standards, specifically the reclassification of Class A shares from equity to mezzanine equity, on legacy ACON financials. Because this issue pre-dated our merger closing with ACON, the restatement had no impact on ESS’ operating company, its current operations or financial statements," said Amir Moftakhar, CFO of ESS. "I am pleased we were able to complete and file these so quickly and am thankful for the support of ACON’s auditors in resolving this so efficiently."
