On January 24, 2022, Banyan Acquisition Corporation (the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 24,150,000 units (the “Units”), including the issuance of 3,150,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option in full. Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Common Stock”), and one-half of one redeemable warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling 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 $241,500,000.

A total of $246,330,000, comprised of $237,720,000 of the proceeds from the IPO (which amount includes $9,660,000 of the deferred underwriting discount) and $8,610,000 of the proceeds of the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, was placed in a trust account at J.P.
