Item 5.07

Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

On June 30, 2023, Adit EdTech Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (“ADEX” or the “Company”), convened a special meeting of its stockholders (the “Special Meeting”). The purpose of the meeting was described in ADEX’s definitive proxy statement as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 30, 2023.

The only proposal submitted for a vote of the stockholders at the Special Meeting was for the approval of the adjournment of such meeting (the “Adjournment Proposal”). The Adjournment Proposal is described in further detail in ADEX’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 30, 2023. The Adjournment Proposal was approved by stockholders at the Special Meeting. In accordance with the authority granted pursuant to the Adjournment Proposal, the Special Meeting was adjourned. ADEX will continue to solicit additional proxies on the proposal to extend the time ADEX has to consummate its initial business combination, as described in the Proxy Statement (the “Extension Proposal”), and the proposal to remove the prohibition on the Company consummating an initial business combination or effecting a redemption or repurchase of IPO Shares in connection with an approved initial business combination, a tender offer and certain amendments to the Company’s Charter if, upon approval of such initial business combination, tender offer, or amendment, the Company does not have net tangible assets in excess of $5 million, as described in the Proxy Statement (the “NTA Proposal”). The adjourned Special Meeting will reconvene at 9:00 a.m. Eastern time on July 11, 2023, and will still be held virtually at https://www.cstproxy.com/aditedtech/ext2023. The items to be considered at the reconvened Special Meeting will be the Extension Proposal and the NTA Proposal.

As of the close of business on May 8, 2023, the record date for the Special Meeting, there were 9,367,422 shares of Common Stock outstanding. Each share of common stock was entitled to one vote on the Adjournment Proposal. A total of 8,102,680 shares of Common Stock, representing approximately 86.5% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock entitled to vote, were present in person or by proxy, constituting a quorum to conduct business.

The Company’s stockholders approved the Adjournment Proposal by the votes set forth below, prior to the adjournment of the Special Meeting:
