VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/23/13 -- LX Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE: LXV) ("LXV" or the "Company") and Mobio Technologies Inc. ("Mobio") are pleased to announce that LXV has entered into a term sheet to acquire Mobio.
Mobio's flagship product, Mobio INsider, is a leading fan-directed content network for social media influencers and their fans. Since its launch in June 2012, Mobio INsider has helped music stars with 10 thousand to 28 million social fans such as Jacob Latimore and Cher Lloyd accelerate their careers, create content requested and voted on by their top fans, and increase revenues from their social media platforms. As part of the INsider experience, the artist's fans can engage with brand partners to unlock fan directed content (artist pictures, videos, and answers) before their peers, creating new career supporting revenue.
LX Ventures is excited to accelerate the growth of Mobio and plans to take its fan-directed content platform and expand its capabilities to a broader group of influencers including actors, athletes, and celebrities alike. The platform has recently been monetized and has a clear revenue model that leverages mobile devices. "Mobio's incentivized advertising technology is a natural fit for our AdTech market vertical. Together, we will internally innovate and deliver revolutionary ways for brands to reach their target consumers across multiple market sectors," said Mike Edwards, CEO of LX Ventures.
Clovis Najm, Founder and CEO of Mobio, said, "It's exciting to become part of LXV as their experience and connections to all influencers and large advertisers is incredibly broad. Their team has the skills to accelerate the expansion of Mobio into the global offering we have all been working towards."
LXV has an exclusive period within which to finalize a definitive agreement. The term sheet remains subject to negotiation and execution of a definitive agreement on or about April 30, 2013. Consideration for the acquisition is contemplated to be 2,000,000 LXV common shares, in addition to certain revenue sharing provisions. The vendors of Mobio will also be granted the right to repurchase an interest in the operating subsidiary of Mobio under certain conditions.
