GREENWICH, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pegasus Digital Mobility Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: PGSS.U) (the "Company"), a special purpose acquisition company founded by Pegasus Digital Mobility Sponsor (the "Sponsor") and formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganisation or similar business combination with one or more businesses or assets (a "Business Combination"), today announced that holders of 2,195,855 of the Company's Class A ordinary shares exercised their right to redeem their shares for a pro rata portion of the funds in the Company's trust account in connection with the announcement of the further extension of the period of time the Company has to consummate its proposed Business Combination with Gebr. SCHMID GmbH (the "SCHMID Group") to December 31, 2023. As a result, approximately $53.7 million will be remaining in the Company's trust account. Following the redemption, the Company's remaining number of issued and outstanding Class A ordinary shares was 5,003,218.
Commencing on August 1, 2023 and paid on the first day of each month thereafter until the earliest of (i) the date on which the Company consummates a Business Combination or (ii) December 31, 2023, the Sponsor will deposit $150,096.54 per month into the Company's trust account, representing $0.03 (three U.S. cents) per Class A ordinary share then in issue. The contribution amount shall be made available and paid on a monthly basis after the issuance of a non-convertible unsecured promissory note from the Company to the Sponsor in connection therewith. Should the Company's Board determine that it will not be able to consummate the initial Business Combination by December 31, 2023 and that the Company shall instead liquidate, the Sponsor's obligation to continue to make such contributions shall immediately cease. If the Board determines that more time is needed to consummate the initial Business Combination, a shareholders' vote in an extraordinary general meeting will be required to change the second amended and restated memorandum and articles of association of the Company.
