Item 8.01. Other Events.
As previously reported on a Current Report on Form 8-K of BYTE Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”), on March 23, 2021, the Company consummated its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 30,000,000 units (the “Units”). Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Ordinary Shares”), 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 Class A Ordinary Share 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 $300,000,000. The underwriters of the IPO (the “Underwriters”) were granted a 45-day option to purchase up to 4,500,000 additional Units to cover over-allotments, if any. On April 7, 2021, the Underwriters exercised the over-allotment option in part and purchased an additional 2,369,251 Units (the “Over-Allotment Units”), generating gross proceeds of $23,692,510.
As previously reported on a Current Report on Form 8-K of the Company, on March 23, 2021, simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale of 1,030,000 units (the “Private Placement Units”) to Byte Holdings LP (the “Sponsor”) at a purchase price of $10.00 per Private Placement Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $10,300,000.
On April 7, 2021, the Company issued a press release announcing the closing of the over-allotment, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
