iSIGN Media Announces TSX Venture Exchange Approval of Mac's Warrants(March 23, 2012)
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/23/12 -- iSIGN Media Solutions Inc. ("iSIGN" or "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ISD), a leading provider of interactive mobile advertising solutions that serves advertisers, manufacturers, retailers and advertising agencies throughout North America, is pleased to announce that it has received TSX Venture Exchange approval for the warrants that were included in the Virtual Private Advertising Network Services Agreement ("VPAN") that was signed with Mac's Convenience Stores Inc. ("Mac's") and Couche-Tard Inc. ("CT") in January 2012.
As agreed between the companies, Mac's/CT will be issued 3,000,000 warrants, exercisable into one common share of iSIGN at a price of $0.50, for a five year period. In addition, Mac's/CT has the option of acquiring 2,924,448 or 1,462,224 common shares of the Company in exchange for either 100% or 50% of the VPAN defined royalty payments.
"We are pleased that the Exchange has issued its acceptance of these warrants," said Alex Romanov, iSIGN's Chief Executive Officer. "This acceptance allows us to finalize the last outstanding part of the agreement and move forward."
In addition, iSIGN is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors will be meeting on March 29, 2012 to review and approve the recently prepared Shareholder Rights Plan ("Plan"). This Plan is designed to encourage a fair treatment of shareholders, should a take-over bid be made for the Company and will provide the Board and Company shareholders more time to consider unsolicited take-over bids of the Company. The Plan is intended to discourage coercive or unfair take-over bids and gives the Board time to pursue alternatives to maximize shareholder value, if appropriate, in the event of an unsolicited take-over bid.
The Plan has not been developed in response to, or in contemplation of, any specific proposal to acquire control of iSIGN. The Plan will be subject to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange and must be ratified by the Shareholders at the Company's next annual general meeting scheduled to take place in 2012.
A complete copy of the Plan will be made available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com once it has been approved by the Board and received final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.
