("XLMedia" or "the Group" or "the Company")

 

Director and PDMR Share Dealing

 

XLMedia (AIM: XLM), a leading provider of digital performance marketing services, has been informed that on 3 October 2016 Ory Weihs, Chief Executive Officer, exercised options over 96,250 ordinary shares in the Company (the "Options"), being all the vested options he currently holds in XLMedia.

The decision to exercise options reflects Mr. Weihs' confidence and commitment to XLMedia and he will not be selling shares as part of the transaction.

The 96,250 options were exercised at a price of 15.4 cent each resulting in the receipt by the Company of an aggregate amount of US$14'822.5.

 

Following the exercise of the Options, Mr. Weihs holds 10,724,423 shares representing 5.35% of the Company's existing issued share capital, of which 2,277,084 ordinary shares (approximately 1.14% of the Company's issued share capital) are held directly and 8,447,339 ordinary shares (approximately 4.22% of the Company's issued share capital) are held through an indirect economic interest in (but with no voting rights attaching to) such ordinary shares which are held by Webpals Enterprises Limited. Mr. Weihs continues to hold options over 262,916 ordinary shares in the Company.

 

The exercise of the Options is in accordance with confirmation received by the Company from the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers prior to admission of the Company's ordinary shares to trading on AIM whereby since such Options were in existence prior to Admission their exercise does not result in the Concert Party (such term as defined in the Company's Admission Document) incurring an obligation to make an offer under Rule 9 of the City Code. Following the exercise of the Options, the Concert Party is interested in, in aggregate, 87,317,411 ordinary shares in the Company (of which 85,040,327 are held by Webpals Enterprises Limited and 2,277,084 are held by Ory Weihs), representing approximately 43.58% of the Company's issued voting share capital.

In addition, 306,250 employee share options have been exercised by PDMRs as detailed below. 

The exercise of the Options is being satisfied by the transfer of shares from the Tamir Fishman Trusts 2004 Ltd ("Tamir Fishman"), the appointed trustee for the Company's Global Share Incentive Plan. Following the transfer of shares Tamir Fishman holds 3,178,916 ordinary shares in the Company representing 1.59% of the Company's issued share capital.

Following the exercise of the Options the total number of Ordinary Shares in the Company remains at 200,352,402 and this is the figure which may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company, under the Disclosure and Transparency Rules set out in the Company's articles of association.
