NautaDutilh assisted Pegasus Entrepreneurial Acquisition Company Europe B.V. (Pegasus Entrepreneurs), a SPAC (special purpose acquisition company), and its sponsors, including Tikehau Capital and Financière Agache, with its IPO on Euronext Amsterdam.
Pegasus Entrepreneurs is led by CEO Pierre Cuilleret who also acts as one of the sponsors to the SPAC. It has successfully raised €210 million in a private placement for the purposes of completing a business combination with a European headquartered growth business. Potential targets will have a clear growth and value creation plan which can be further developed thanks to the expertise, additional capital and listing obtained by entering into a business combination with Pegasus Entrepreneurs. The private placement was upsized by €10 million due to strong investor demand.
Last Friday's listing of Pegasus Entrepreneurs is the 15th SPAC listing on Euronext Amsterdam this year, and the 7th SPAC IPO our Dutch team has assisted on this year. The SPAC IPOs we advised on include the listing of Pegasus Acquisition Company Europe B.V., another SPAC with Tikehau Capital and Financière Agache as sponsors.
Our deal team for the Pegasus Entrepreneurs SPAC IPO was led by Antonia Netiv and included Linda Tomassen, Justine Schellekens, Annefleur van Oel, Jules van de Winckel, Marloes van der Laan, Petra Zijp, Sabrina Legerstee, Jochem Polderman, Thyla Fontein - Streefkerk, Felix Seuntjens, Chris Warner, Sjuul Jentjens, Ashley Beesemer, Jasha Sprecher and Marrit van Eijck van Heslinga.
'It was such a pleasure to work with the Pegasus Entrepreneurs team and its sponsors on their IPO. It is already the 15th SPAC listing on Euronext Amsterdam this year', says Antonia. '2021 proved to be a busy capital markets year for us. And because of our stellar team, I am excited to see what 2022 brings!'
