June 1, 2021

New York, NY, June 1, 2021—Ivanhoe Capital Acquisition Corp. (the "Company") today announced that it received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") indicating that the Company is not in compliance with Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of its failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 (the "Q1 2021 Form 10-Q") with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company's ordinary shares on the NYSE.

The NYSE informed the Company that, under the NYSE's rules, the Company can regain compliance with the NYSE's continued listing requirements by filing the Q1 2021 Form 10-Q with the SEC at any time prior to November 24, 2021.

As the Company reported in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on May 18, 2021, the Company is currently determining the extent to which the April 12, 2021 statement released by the Staff of the SEC relating to the accounting and reporting considerations for warrants issued by special purpose acquisition companies ("SPACs") will impact its financial statements as of and for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021, which will be included in the Q1 2021 Form 10-Q.

The Company is working diligently to complete the Q1 2021 Form 10-Q and expects to file such report as soon as practicable.
