Item 1.01.     Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
On September 9, 2021, Gevo, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the At-The-Market Offering Agreement, dated February 13, 2018 (as amended, the “Sales Agreement”), with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC (the “Agent”), which provides for the issuance and sale from time to time of the Company’s common stock in an “at-the-market” offering (the “ATM Offering”). The Sales Agreement, among other things, provides for the issuance and sale under the ATM Offering of up to $500 million of shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Shares”) pursuant to the prospectus supplement, dated September 9, 2021.
 
The Shares have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-252229), which became effective upon its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on January 19, 2021 (the “Registration Statement”), and a prospectus, which consists of a base prospectus filed with the Registration Statement, and a prospectus supplement, dated September 9, 2021. Sales of the Shares, if any, may be made by any method permitted by law deemed to be an “at-the-market offering” as defined in Rule 415(a)(4) of the Securities Act, including sales made directly on or through the Nasdaq Capital Market or any other existing trading market for the Shares, in negotiated transactions at market prices prevailing at the time of sale or at prices related to such prevailing market prices and/or any other method permitted by law. If the Company and the Agent agree on any method of distribution other than sales of shares of the Company’s common stock into the Nasdaq Capital Market or another existing trading market in the United States at market prices, the Company will file a further prospectus supplement providing all information about such offering as required by Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act.
 
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to fund capital projects, working capital and for general corporate purposes.
 
The Sales Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, including obligations of the Company to indemnify the Agent for certain liabilities under the Securities Act. Under the terms of the Sales Agreement, the Company will pay the Agent a commission of up to 3.0% of the gross proceeds from sales of the Shares.
 
This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the Company’s common stock in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
 
The foregoing description of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1, and is incorporated herein by reference. A legal opinion relating to the Shares is filed herewith as Exhibit 5.1.
