The information provided in Item 8.01 of this Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 3.02.
Item 8.01 Other Events.
On January 14, 2021, Adit EdTech Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), completed its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 24,000,000 units (“Units”). Each Unit consists of one share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), and one-half of one redeemable warrant (“Warrant”), each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment, pursuant to the Company’s registration statements on Form S-1 (File Nos. 333-251641 and 333-252021). The Units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $240,000,000.
As previously reported on a Current Report on Form 8-K of the Company, on January 14, 2021, simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, the Company completed a private placement of an aggregate of 6,550,000 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds of $6,550,000 (the “Private Placement”).
A total of $240,000,000 of the net proceeds from the IPO and the Private Placement was deposited in a trust account established for the benefit of the Company’s public stockholders.
On January 15, 2021, the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option in full, and on January 19, 2021, the underwriters purchased an additional 3,600,000 Units at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $36,000,000. Simultaneously with the closing of the sale of additional Units, the Company sold an additional 720,000 Private Placement Warrants at a price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds of $720,000. As of January 19, 2021, an aggregate amount of $276,000,000 of the net proceeds from the IPO (including the additional 3,600,000 Units and additional 720,000 Private Placement Warrants) were deposited in the Company’s trust account established in connection with the IPO.
The Private Placement and the sale of the additional Private Placement Warrants were conducted as non-public transactions and, as transactions by an issuer not involving a public offering, are exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) in reliance upon Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.
An audited balance sheet as of January 14, 2021 reflecting receipt of the net proceeds from the IPO and the Private Placement on January 14, 2021 (excluding the proceeds from the sale of the additional 3,600,000 Units and 720,000 Private Warrants), is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The Company’s unaudited pro forma balance sheet as of January 14, 2021, reflecting receipt of the proceeds from the sale of the additional 3,600,000 Units and the additional 720,000 Private Placement Warrants is included as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
