Update on Sale of xMax Market Exclusivity; Application for Admission of Shares


Further to the announcement made on March 6, 2012, xG Technology, the developer of a portfolio of wireless communications technologies, including cognitive radio networks, confirms that discussions with Care 21 Limited ("Care 21") are continuing regarding the non-receipt of payments due under the agreement between xG and Care 21 entered into in December 2011. The Company confirms that it has received a further $400,000 from investors introduced to xG by Care 21, who have subscribed 400,000 new shares of $0.01 each in the common stock of the Company ("Shares") at $1.00 per Share, which represents a substantial premium to the current market price. Given the receipt of additional monies, xG has further extended the cure period and will update shareholders in due course.


Application is being made for admission of the new Shares to trading on AIM. It is expected that admission of the new Shares will become effective on or about March 26, 2012. The new Shares will trade under the XGT symbol.



Note:  Following the issue of the new Shares referred to above, the Company's issued share capital will comprise 211,003,454 Shares, each Share having equal voting rights. The Company holds 40,000 Shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of Shares with voting rights will be 210,963,454. 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.
