Item 8.01.  Other Events.

 

On February 8, 2021, Novus Capital Corporation II (the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (the “IPO”) of 28,750,000 units (the “Units”), including the issuance of 3,750,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their option to purchase additional Units in full. Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”), and one-third of one redeemable warrant of the Company. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock for $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $287,500,000.

 

Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale of 5,166,666 warrants to its initial stockholders (such warrants, collectively, the “Private Placement Warrants”), at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $7,750,000.

 

A total of $287,500,000, comprised of proceeds from the IPO and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, was placed in a U.S.-based trust account at J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., maintained by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, acting as trustee. An audited balance sheet as of February 8, 2021 reflecting receipt of the proceeds upon consummation of the IPO and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants has been issued by the Company and is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
