Issue of Equity

Xpediator, (AIM: XPD) a leading provider of freight management services across the UK and Europe, announces that pursuant to the acquisition of Easy Managed Transport Limited (“EMT”), as described in the Group’s admission document dated 8 August 2017, a deferred consideration payment of £1,074,626 million, based on the results of EMT for the twelve month period to 28 February 2018, has become payable to the vendors of EMT, Michael Mehmet and his wife, Paula Mehmet. The deferred consideration payment will be settled by the issue of 1,313,047 new ordinary shares in the Group to Michael Mehmet and the issue of 414,647 new ordinary shares in the Group to Paula Mehmet (the “Deferred Consideration Shares”).

Details of the Deferred Consideration Shares

Application has been made for the Deferred Consideration Shares, which will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares of 5 pence each in the Group (“Ordinary Shares”), to be admitted to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange (“Admission”). It is expected that Admission will occur at 8.00am on or around 13 June 2018.

Michael and Paula Mehmet have agreed not to dispose of the Deferred Consideration Shares for a period of twelve months from the date of issue without the prior consent of the Company’s nominated adviser and joint broker, SP Angel Corporate Finance LLP, and the Company’s joint broker, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe.

Total Voting Rights

Following Admission, the Group’s issued ordinary share capital will comprise 119,158,838 Ordinary Shares and may be used by shareholders in the Group as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Group under the FCA’s Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
