DIGITAL LEARNING MARKETPLACE PLC
("DLM" or "the Company")
Issue of Equity
DLM, the AIM listed digital learning business, is delighted to announce that following the announcement on 15 November 2011, development of the Digital Learning Marketplace ("DLMP") is progressing to plan and the first payment for the acquisition of £40,000 will be made by the issue of 20,000,000 shares @ 0.20p to Milamber Ltd. Milamber Ltd, in which Andy Hasoon is a 21% shareholder, (DLM's Chief Executive and Director) owns an 8.75% interest in DLM (60,000,000 ordinary shares of 0.05p). Accordingly, the transaction is a Related Party Transaction as defined by the AIM Rules.
As stated on 15 November the independent Directors of DLM (being all the Directors with the exception of Andy Hasoon) having consulted with the Company's Nominated Adviser, consider that the terms of the MOU are fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.
In addition to the issue above the Company has issued 5,800,000 shares for cash @ 0.20p per share raising £11,600 net of costs. The proceeds will be used for general working capital purposes. In addition, the Directors intend to subscribe for shares on the same terms.
The Issues are conditional on admission of the Shares to trading on AIM ("Admission"). Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the Placing Shares, which will rank pari passu with all existing ordinary shares, to be admitted to trading on AIM. Admission is expected to become effective and dealings to commence on or around 20 February 2012.
Following Admission the number of shares in issue will be 674,809,182 Ordinary shares of 0.05 pence per share. This figure may be used by shareholders in the Company 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 share capital of the Company under the Financial Services Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
