Dec 7, 2021

Pierre Cuilleret – Biography Pierre has 30 years of professional experience growing companies and creating value for shareholders as a serial technology entrepreneur, investor and board member. In 1996, Pierre sold his car to fund the start-up of The Phone House, a fast-growing specialist mobile phone retailer that later became part of Carphone Warehouse plc, which listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2000. In 2005, Pierre invested alongside L-Catterton in video game retailer Micromania and became CEO. Under Pierre’s leadership, Micromania grew rapidly and was sold to GameStop for approximately $700 million in 2008. Pierre was an early investor in Facebook, Uber, Royalty Pharma and Moderna. Since 2011, he has served as a non-executive board member for both listed and private companies, including DIA and Desigual in Spain and Boohoo Group Plc in the UK. After studying at the University of California (Berkeley), the Stockholm School of Economics and HEC (France), Pierre’s early career was spent in strategy and business transformation consulting. Advising companies such as Disney and Orange, his focus was on growth, digitalisation, organisation, improving customer experience, brand building and corporate culture. Key Terms Shareholder vote upon acquisition • In order to complete a business combination, Pegasus Entrepreneurs will convene a general meeting and propose the business combination for consideration and approval by its shareholders, which resolution is to be adopted by a simple majority of the votes cast at such shareholders’ meeting (assuming at least half of the issued and outstanding share capital is represented at such meeting)   • Separately, the Company will provide its Class A Ordinary Shareholders with the opportunity to have all or a portion of their Class A Ordinary Shares redeemed upon the completion of the business combination at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Escrow Account Selected Risk Factors Any investment in the Units, Class A Ordinary Shares and Warrants involves numerous risks and uncertainties related to the Pegasus Entrepreneurs’ business that may result for investors in a partial or total loss of their investment, including: Pegasus Entrepreneurs may face significant competition for Business Combination opportunities; Pegasus Entrepreneurs is a newly incorporated entity with no operating history and will not commence operations prior to the Offering; Pegasus Entrepreneurs is dependent upon the Sponsors and/or the Statutory Directors to identify potential Business Combination opportunities and to execute the Business Combination and the loss of the services of such individuals could materially adversely affect Pegasus Entrepreneurs; Past performance by the Sponsors and their affiliates and/or any of the Statutory Directors may not be indicative of future performance of an investment in Pegasus Entrepreneurs; Pegasus Entrepreneurs may need to arrange third party financing and there can be no assurance that it will be able to obtain such financing, which could compel Pegasus Entrepreneurs to restructure or abandon a particular Business Combination; Pegasus Entrepreneurs expects to complete the Business Combination with a single target company or business, meaning Pegasus Entrepreneurs’ operations will likely depend on a single business or company that is expected to operate in a non-diverse industry or segment of an industry; The Sponsors and their affiliates and/or directors and one Statutory Director control a substantial interest in Pegasus Entrepreneurs and thus will exert a substantial influence on actions requiring a shareholder vote, potentially in a manner that Class A Ordinary Shareholders do not support; Pegasus Entrepreneurs may seek to complete a Business Combination in a sector or an industry in which Statutory Directors do not have prior experience; The Statutory Directors will allocate their time to other businesses leading to potential conflicts of interest in their determination as to how much time to devote to Pegasus Entrepreneurs’ affairs, which could have a negative impact on Pegasus Entrepreneurs’ ability to complete the Business Combination; Certain of the Sponsors and Statutory Directors are now, and all of them may in the future become, affiliated with entities engaged in business activities similar to those intended to be conducted by Pegasus Entrepreneurs and, accordingly, may have conflicts of interest in determining to which entity a particular business opportunity should be presented, which could have a negative impact on the Pegasus Entrepreneurs’ ability to complete the Business Combination.

Any potential investor must make their investment solely on the basis of information that will be contained in the Prospectus. Potential investors must read the entire Prospectus carefully before making an investment decision in order to fully understand the potential risks and rewards associated with the decision to invest in the Units. The (prospective) approval of the Prospectus by the AFM should not be understood as an endorsement of the quality of the Units and the Company. This press release contains information that qualifies or may have qualified as inside information within the meaning of Article 7(1) of the EU Market Abuse Regulation. These materials are not for release, distribution or publication, whether directly or indirectly and whether in whole or in part, in or into the United States, Canada, Australia or Japan or any other jurisdiction where to do so would constitute a violation of the relevant laws of such jurisdiction. These materials are for information purposes only and are not intended to constitute, and should not be construed as, an offer to sell or a solicitation of any offer to buy the Securities of the Company in the United States, Canada, Australia or Japan or in any other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration, exemption from registration or qualification under the securities laws of such jurisdiction. This announcement is not for publication or distribution, directly or indirectly, in or into the United States. This announcement is not an offer of securities for sale into the United States. The Securities have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States, except pursuant to an applicable exemption from registration. The Company will not be registered in the United States as an investment company under the U.S. Investment Company Act of 1940. No public offering of securities is being made in the United States. In the United Kingdom, this document and any other materials in relation to the Securities is only being distributed to, and is only directed at, and any investment or investment activity to which this document relates is available only to, and will be engaged in only with, "qualified investors" within the meaning of Article 2(e) of Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (the “EUWA”) and who are also (i) persons having professional experience in matters relating to investments who fall within the definition of "investment professionals" in Article 19(5) of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005 (the Order); or (ii) high net worth entities falling within Article 49(2)(a) to (d) of the Order (all such persons together being referred to as "relevant persons"). The Securities are only available to, and any invitation, offer or agreement to subscribe, purchase or otherwise acquire such Securities will be engaged in only with, relevant persons. Persons who are not relevant persons should not take any action on the basis of this document and should not act or rely on it. In relation to each member state of the European Economic Area, no Units, Class A Ordinary Shares or Warrants have been offered or will be offered, except to any legal entity which is a qualified investor as defined in Article 2 of the Prospectus Regulation, provided that no such offer of Units, Class A Ordinary Shares or Warrants shall require the Company to publish a prospectus pursuant to Article 3 of the Prospectus Regulation or supplement a prospectus pursuant to Article 23 of the Prospectus Regulation. In Switzerland, no Units, Class A Ordinary Shares or Warrants have been offered or will be offered and the materials are addressed to, and directed only at, persons who are professional or institutional clients within the meaning of Article 4(3) and Article 4(4) of the Swiss Financial Services Act. The Units, the Class A Ordinary Shares and the Warrants are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and, should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the EEA. For these purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of Directive (EU) 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments (as amended) (“MiFID II”); (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive 2016/97/EC (as amended or superseded, the ‘Insurance Distribution Directive’), where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in the Prospectus Regulation. Consequently no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (as amended the ‘PRIIPs Regulation’) for offering or selling the Units or the Warrants or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the EEA has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the Units or the Warrants or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may be unlawful under the PRIIPs Regulation. No action has been taken by the Company that would permit an offer of Securities or the possession or distribution of these materials or any other offering or publicity material relating to such Securities in any jurisdiction where action for that purpose is required. The Units and the Warrants are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the United Kingdom. For these purposes, a “retail investor” means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client, as defined in Directive (EU) 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments (as amended) and implemented in the United Kingdom as it forms part of the domestic law of the United Kingdom by virtue of the EUWA (“UK MIFID II”); (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/97 (as amended) as it forms part of the domestic law of the United Kingdom by virtue of the EUWA, where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in UK MIFID II; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in Article 2 of the UK Prospectus Regulation. Consequently, no key information document required by the Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 as it forms part of the domestic law of the United Kingdom by virtue of the EUWA (the “UK PRIIPs Regulation”) for offering or selling the Units and the Warrants or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the United Kingdom has been prepared and, therefore, offering or selling the Units and the Warrants or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the UK may be unlawful under the UK PRIIPs Regulation.
