Item 8.01. Other Events.


On February 17, 2021, Broadscale Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) consummated the sale of 34,500,000 units (the “Units”) in its initial public offering (the “IPO”), including the issuance of 4,500,000 Units as a result of the Underwriters' exercise of their Over-Allotment Option (as defined below) in full. Each Unit consists of one share of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), and one-fourth of one redeemable warrant (each, a “Warrant”), where each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of Common Stock for $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment as provided in the Company’s registration statement on Form S-1, initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 27, 2021 (File No. 333-252449). The Units were sold in the IPO at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit for gross proceeds of $345,000,000 (before underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses). The Company granted the underwriters in the IPO (the “Underwriters”) a 45-day option to purchase up to 4,500,000 additional Units solely to cover over-allotments, if any (the “Over-Allotment Option”); and on February 12, 2021, the Underwriters notified the Company that they were exercising the Over-Allotment Option in full.


On February 17, 2021, simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, the Company consummated the issuance and sale (“Private Placement”) of 6,266,667 warrants (the “Placement Warrants”) in a private placement transaction at a price of $1.50 per Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds of $9,400,000. The Placement Warrants were purchased by the Company’s sponsor, Nokomis ESG Sponsor, LLC.


A total of $345,000,000 of the net proceeds from the IPO and the Private Placement (which includes approximately $12,075,000 of the Underwriters’ deferred discount) were placed in a trust account established for the benefit of the Company’s public stockholders at JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee.


An audited balance sheet as of February 17, 2021 reflecting receipt of the proceeds upon consummation of the IPO and the Private Placement has been issued by the Company and is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
