Overview and Basis of Presentation Overview and Basis of Presentation
Overview of the Organization
Aurora Innovation, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries (the “Company” or “Aurora”) was initially incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company on October 2, 2020 and was formerly known as Reinvent Technology Partners Y (“RTPY”).
On November 3, 2021 (the “Closing Date” or “Closing”), the Company filed a notice of deregistration with the Cayman Islands Registrar of Companies, domesticated as a Delaware corporation, and changed its name to Aurora Innovation, Inc. As contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated July 14, 2021 (the “Merger Agreement”), Aurora consummated the merger transaction (the “Merger”) whereby RTPY Merger Sub, Inc., a direct subsidiary of the Company, merged with and into Aurora Innovation Holdings, Inc. (“Legacy Aurora”), a Delaware corporation f/k/a Aurora Innovation, Inc. The Company’s common stock is listed on the NASDAQ under the symbol “AUR” and the Company’s warrants to purchase shares of Class A common stock are listed on the NASDAQ under the symbol “AUROW”. The Merger was accounted for as a reverse capitalization and operations prior to the Closing presented are those of Legacy Aurora.
The Company designs and develops the Aurora Driver, which is the hardware, software, and data services that allow vehicles to drive themselves.
Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and include the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to rule and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
The information included herein should be read in conjunction with the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 for additional disclosures. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2021 included in the condensed consolidated financial statements was derived from the audited financial statements as of that date but does not contain all of the footnote disclosures from the annual financial statements.
The condensed consolidated financial statements reflect, in the opinion of management, all adjustments of a normal, recurring nature necessary for a fair statement of our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the periods presented but are not necessarily indicative of the expected results for the full fiscal year or any future period.
