Venture Capital-Backed SPAC Banner Acquisition Eyes US$150 Million IPO

Special purpose acquisition company Banner Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: BNNRU) started trading publicly yesterday on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The company is seeking to raise US$150 million in its initial public offering.

The offering consists of 15.0 million company units priced at US$10.00 per unit, down from the initial 30.0 million units. Each unit is composed of one Class A common share and one-half of a purchase warrant. Each whole warrant is redeemable for one Class A common share at US$11.50 per share.

The company units trade on the Nasdaq big board under the symbol “BNNRU”. Once the securities separate, the company shares and warrants will trade under the ticker symbols “BNNR” and “BNNRW”, respectively.

The proposed offering is being managed by BofA Securities, Inc. as the sole bookrunner, which the company granted a 45-day over-allotment option to purchase additional 2.25 million company units at the same IPO price.

The offering is expected to close on September 10, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.

The blank check company is backed by venture capital firm Banner Ventures and will be led by The Ensign Group (Nasdaq: ENSG) Executive Chairman Christopher Christensen as its chair. The company said it intends to “seek partnership with family-owned or founder-led businesses”.
