Result of Placing


Proxama PLC (AIM: PROX), a leading mobile location and data intelligence expert, is pleased to announce the successful completion of an upsized bookbuild for the Placing that was announced earlier today.


The Placing Shares, being 5,000,000,000 New Ordinary Shares, have been placed by Peel Hunt at the Issue Price of 0.03 pence per share, representing a 79.31 per cent. discount to the closing price of 0.145 pence on 29 June 2017 (being the day prior to this announcement) with new and existing investors, raising gross proceeds of approximately £1.5 million (approximately £1.2 million net of expenses).


The Placing Shares will represent approximately 207.5 per cent. of the Existing Ordinary Shares and approximately 22.7 per cent. of the Enlarged Share Capital (assuming a full take up of the Open Offer).


Open Offer


The Company also confirms that Qualifying Shareholders will be given the opportunity to subscribe for New Ordinary Shares through an Open Offer to raise up to approximately £4.1 million, on the basis of 17 Open Offer Shares for every 3 Existing Ordinary Shares held, at the Issue Price.


General Meeting


The proposed Placing and Open Offer (together the "Fundraising") are subject to the passing of certain resolutions (the "Resolutions") for which Shareholder approval will be sought at the general meeting of the Company, which is expected to be convened by posting today to Shareholders a circular containing notice of the General Meeting.  The Circular will set out the reasons for, and provide further information on, the Fundraising, to explain why the Board considers the Fundraising to be in the best interests of the Company and its Shareholders as a whole and why the Directors unanimously recommend that Shareholders vote in favour of the Resolutions.


John Kennedy, CEO of Proxama, said:


"I would like to thank our existing and new shareholders for the faith they have put in Proxama and look forward to updating shareholders on our progress in the months ahead."


Directors' participation


Directors, prospective directors and certain shareholders of the Company have, in aggregate, invested £200,000 of the funds raised in the Placing.
