The Meeting Materials will also be available on MediaValet's website at . The Circular contains, among other things, details concerning the Arrangement, the background to and reasons for the favourable recommendation of the Arrangement by both the Board of Directors (the "Board") and its special committee (the "Special Committee") comprised of a majority of independent directors, the requirements for the Arrangement to become effective, the procedure for receiving consideration payable for Shares and Warrants under the Arrangement, and procedures for voting at the Meeting. Securityholders are urged to carefully review the Circular and accompanying Meeting Materials as they contain important information regarding the Arrangement and its consequences to Securityholders.

Selected Reasons for the Arrangement

  • Attractive Consideration. The Consideration payable under the Arrangement represents:
    • a premium of approximately 30% to the closing price per Share on the TSX on January 23, 2024 (being the last trading day immediately prior to the announcement of the Arrangement);
    • a premium of approximately 22% to the 20-day volume-weighted average price per Share on the TSX for the period ended on January 23, 2024; and
    • a transaction value multiple of 4.5x annual recurring revenue ("ARR") based on approximately $18 million of ARR as of December 31, 2023.
  • Certainty of Value and Liquidity. The Consideration is all cash, which provides Shareholders with immediate liquidity and certainty of value.
  • Value Supported by a Fairness Opinion. The Board and Special Committee received a fairness opinion from TD Securities Inc. to the effect that, based upon and subject to the assumptions, limitations and qualifications contained in such opinion, and such other matters as TD Securities Inc., considered relevant, as of the date of such opinion, the consideration of C$1.71 to be received by the Shareholders under the Arrangement is fair, from a financial point of view, to the Shareholders.
  • Director & Officer Support. Directors and officers of the Company, who collectively hold approximately 34.1% of the issued and outstanding Shares and 85.71% of the issued and outstanding Warrants, have entered into Voting and Support Agreements pursuant to which, and subject to the terms thereof, each has agreed to vote in favour of the Arrangement.
  • Limited Conditions to Closing. STG's obligation to complete the Arrangement is subject to a limited number of closing conditions that the Board believes are reasonable in the circumstances. Completion of the Arrangement is not subject to any financing condition. STG is a credible purchaser with significant financial capacity and a strong track-record of investing in technology companies.
  • Attractive Transaction Relative to Alternatives. After consultation with its financial and legal advisors, and after taking into account other strategic opportunities reasonably available to the Company, including the continued execution of its stand-alone plan, and the experience of the Company from its previous strategic process, in each case taking into account the potential benefits, risks and uncertainties associated with those other opportunities, the Special Committee and the Board believes that the Arrangement represents the Company's best alternative for maximizing Shareholder value.


The Board of Directors of MediaValet UNANIMOUSLY recommends that Securityholders vote FOR the Arrangement.


MediaValet is also pleased to announce that on February 27, 2024, the Company received an interim order from the Court of King's Bench (Alberta) regarding the Arrangement (the "Interim Order"). The Interim Order authorizes MediaValet to proceed with various matters, including the holding of the Meeting to consider and vote on the Arrangement.


The Meeting is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. (Vancouver time) on March 27, 2024. At the Meeting, Securityholders will be asked to consider and vote on the resolution to approve the Arrangement, whereby, among other things, the Purchaser would acquire all of the issued and outstanding Shares in exchange for the Consideration.
