Paris, 17 May 2022

Darrois Villey Maillot Brochier advises Financière Lov and FL Entertainment on the merger by absorption (de-spacing) by FL Entertainment, the new umbrella company of Banijay Group and Betclic Everest Group, of Pegasus Entrepreneurial Acquisition Company Europe (“Pegasus Entrepreneurs”), a SPAC listed on Euronext Amsterdam, pursuant to which FL Entertainment will be listed on Euronext Amsterdam.
