Talon 1 Acquisition Corp. (the "Company") announced today the completion of its initial public offering of 23,000,000 units, including 3,000,000 units as a result of the underwriters' full exercise of their over-allotment option, at a public offering price of $10.00 per unit, resulting in gross proceeds of $230 million.
The Company's units commenced trading on the Nasdaq Global Market ("Nasdaq") under the ticker symbol "TOACU" on November 4, 2021.
