Prospector Capital Corp. Announces Extraordinary General Meeting Date to Approve Proposed Business Combination With LeddarTech


Prospector Capital Corp. ("Prospector") (Nasdaq: PRSRU, PRSR and PRSRW) announced that it will call an Extraordinary General Meeting of its shareholders on December 13, 2023 at 10:00 am ET to, among other things, approve the proposed business combination (the "Business Combination") with LeddarTech Inc., a corporation existing under the laws of Canada ("LeddarTech"), and LeddarTech Holdings Inc., a company incorporated under the laws of Canada and a wholly owned subsidiary of LeddarTech ("Newco"). The Extraordinary General Meeting will be held at the offices of White & Case LLP, 1221 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10020 and virtually, at https://www.cstproxy.com/prospectorcapital/egm2023.

Holders of Class A ordinary shares of Prospector (the "Prospector Class A Shares") may redeem their Prospector Class A Shares included in the units sold in Prospector's initial public offering (the "public shares") for cash if the Business Combination is consummated. Holders of public shares or units who wish to exercise their redemption rights must (i) if they hold their public shares through units, elect to separate their units into the underlying public shares and warrants and (ii) prior to 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on December 12, 2023 (one business day prior to the scheduled date of the Extraordinary General Meeting), (a) submit a written request to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, Prospector's transfer agent (the "Transfer Agent"), that Prospector redeem their public shares for cash and (b) deliver their public shares to the Transfer Agent physically or electronically using the DTC's DWAC (Deposit and Withdrawal at Custodian). Any holder of public shares will be entitled to demand that such holder's public shares be redeemed for a full pro rata portion of the amount then in Prospector's trust account (the "Trust Account"), including interest earned on the Trust Account and not previously released to Prospector to pay its taxes (which, for illustrative purposes, was approximately $23.9 million, or $10.90 per public share, as of November 24, 2023). Such amount, less any owed but unpaid taxes on the funds in the Trust Account, will be paid promptly upon consummation of the Business Combination. Each of our public shareholders will be entitled to receive one additional Prospector Class A Share for each Prospector Class A Share they elect to not redeem in connection with the closing of the Business Combination. A definitive proxy statement/prospectus will be provided and will be publicly available at www.sec.gov once the Registration Statement on Form F-4 (the "Registration Statement") of which it forms a part is declared effective. YOU ARE URGED TO PROMPTLY CONTACT YOUR BROKER OR OTHER CUSTODIAN THROUGH WHOM YOU MAY OWN PUBLIC SHARES OR UNITS IF YOU WISH TO REDEEM YOUR PROSPECTOR CLASS A SHARES. HOWEVER, YOU MAY NOT VOTE OR REDEEM YOUR PROSPECTOR CLASS A SHARES UNTIL YOU RECEIVE THE DEFINITIVE PROXY STATEMENT.

Any request for redemption, once made by a holder of public shares, may be withdrawn at any time up to the deadline for submitting redemption requests and thereafter, with Prospector's consent, until the closing of the Business Combination. If a holder delivers their public shares for redemption to the Transfer Agent and later decides to withdraw such request prior to the deadline for submitting redemption requests, the holder may request that the Transfer Agent return the shares (physically or electronically).

Any corrected or changed written demand of redemption rights must be received by the Transfer Agent prior to the vote taken on the proposal to approve the Business Combination at the Extraordinary General Meeting. No demand for redemption will be honored unless the holder's public shares have been delivered (either physically or electronically) to the Transfer Agent prior to the deadline for submitting redemption requests.

The closing of the Business Combination is subject to approval by Prospector's shareholders and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions and is expected to close as soon as practicable following the Extraordinary General Meeting.
