LUGANO, Switzerland & WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Energy Vault Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: NRGV, NRGV WS) (“Energy Vault” or the “Company”), a leader in sustainable, grid-scale energy storage solutions, today announced that as of July 25, 2022, approximately 7.0 million of the total approximately 9.6 million outstanding public warrants (“Public Warrants”) to purchase shares of Energy Vault’s Class A common stock (the “Common Stock”) that were issued under the Warrant Agreement, dated as of February 3, 2021 (the “Warrant Agreement”), by and between the Company (f/k/a Novus Capital Corp. II) and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as warrant agent (the “Warrant Agent”), had been exercised since the Company’s announcement on July 1, 2022 of the cashless redemption of the Public Warrants.
The Public Warrants were originally issued in connection with the Company’s initial public offering in February 2021 (the “IPO”). As previously announced on July 1, 2022, the Company provided notice to the holders of Public Warrants that such Public Warrants will be redeemed on August 1, 2022 (the “Redemption Date”) for a Redemption Price of $0.10 per Public Warrant, in accordance with their terms. Holders of the Public Warrants have until 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on August 1, 2022 to exercise their Public Warrants and receive Common Stock (i) in exchange for a payment in cash of the $11.50 per warrant exercise price, or (ii) on a “cashless” basis in which case the exercising holder will receive a number of shares of Common Stock determined under the Warrant Agreement based on the redemption date and the redemption fair market value, as determined in accordance with the Warrant Agreement. Warrants to purchase Common Stock that were issued under the Warrant Agreement in a private placement simultaneously with the IPO, and are still held by the initial holders thereof or their permitted transferees, are not subject to this redemption.
As a courtesy, Energy Vault would like to remind any remaining holders of Public Warrants that if any of the remaining approximately 1.9 million Public Warrants are not exercised prior to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on August 1, 2022, such unexercised Public Warrants will be void and no longer exercisable, and the holders will have no rights with respect to those Public Warrants, except to receive the Redemption Price of $0.10 per Public Warrant.
If you hold Public Warrants, you may need to take action before August 1, 2022. Please see our warrant redemption FAQ document for further information.
None of Energy Vault, its board of directors, officers or employees has made or is making any representation or recommendation to any holder of the Public Warrants as to whether to exercise or refrain from exercising any Public Warrants.
The shares of common stock underlying the Public Warrants have been registered by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and are covered by a registration statement filed on Form S-1, as amended, with, and declared effective by, the Securities and Exchange Commission (Registration No. 333-262720).
