7digital (AIM:7DIG), the B2B digital music and radio services company, announces that it has applied to the London Stock Exchange for 257,630 ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). The new Ordinary Shares are being issued subsequent to exercises of options over Ordinary Shares ("Options") by employees of the Company.

Of the Options, 155,556 were exercised by Paul Langworthy, a person discharging managerial responsibilities ("PDMR") of the Company. Mr Langworthy subsequently sold 155,556 Ordinary Shares at a price of 5.75 pence per Ordinary Share to cover personal commitments, including the income tax payable on the exercise of his Options. Further information is set out in the PDMR disclosure table below.

It is expected that Admission will become effective and trading will commence in the new Ordinary Shares at 8.00 a.m. on 21 August 2017. On Admission the Company's issued share capital will comprise 183,268,928 Ordinary Shares, of which 28,336 are held in treasury. Therefore the total number of Ordinary Shares in the Company with voting rights will be 183,240,592. Accordingly, the figure of 183,240,592 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 FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
