Item 3.01.

Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On February 3, 2023, the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) notified Berenson Acquisition Corp. I (the “Company”), and publicly announced, that the NYSE determined to commence proceedings to delist the Company’s warrants, each whole warrant exercisable to purchase one share of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, at a price of $11.50 per share, and listed to trade on the NYSE under the symbol “BACA WS” (the “Warrants”), from the NYSE and that trading in the Warrants would be suspended immediately, due to “abnormally low” trading price levels pursuant to Section 802.01D of the NYSE Listed Company Manual.

The Company had a right to a review of this determination by a Committee of the Board of Directors of the NYSE. The NYSE applied to the Securities and Exchange Commission to delist the Warrants upon completion of all applicable procedures, including any appeal by the Company of the NYSE’s decision. The Company does not intend to appeal the determination.

Trading in the Warrants on the NYSE was suspended immediately. As of February 9, 2023, the Warrants are trading on the over-the-counter market under the symbol “BACAW.” Trading in the Company’s Class A common stock and units will continue on the NYSE.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
