Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On January 4, 2017, Gevo, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Certificate of Amendment”) with the Delaware Secretary of State to effect a one-for-twenty reverse split of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”), and the Reverse Stock Split became effective in accordance with the terms of the Certificate of Amendment at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on January 5, 2017 (the “Effective Time).

At the Effective Time, every twenty shares of the Company’s common stock issued and outstanding were automatically combined into one share of common stock, without any change in the par value per share. The Company will not issue any fractional shares in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Instead, fractional shares will be rounded up to the next largest whole number. The Reverse Stock Split will not modify the rights or preferences of the common stock. Proportional adjustments have been made to the conversion and exercise prices of the Company’s outstanding warrants, convertible notes and stock options, and to the number of shares issued and issuable under the Company’s equity compensation plans.

The Company’s transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, is the exchange agent for the Reverse Stock Split and will correspond with stockholders of record regarding the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders owning shares via a broker or other nominee will have their positions automatically adjusted to reflect the Reverse Stock Split.

The Company’s common stock began trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market on a split-adjusted basis on Friday, January 6, 2017. The new CUSIP number for the Company’s common stock following the Reverse Stock Split is 374396307.

The foregoing description of the Certificate of Amendment does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the Certificate of Amendment, which is attached as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is incorporated herein by reference.
