Adaptive Medias, Inc. Receives Acquisition Proposal From Adsupply, Inc. for $35 Million, or $1.50 Per Share, in All Cash Transaction

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adaptive Medias, Inc. (OTCQB:ADTM), a video technology company that supports publishers, content producers and brand advertisers, today announced it received an acquisition proposal from private digital advertising technology company AdSupply, Inc., for $35 million, or $1.50 per share, in an all cash transaction. The offer represents a premium of nearly 900% to Adaptive Medias’ closing stock price of $0.16 on January 27, 2016.

Under the terms of the proposal, AdSupply would acquire all of Adaptive Medias’ outstanding shares for a total all cash consideration of approximately $35 million, or $1.50 per share, based on a share count of 23,400,281 on the date of this release. The proposal was submitted on January 27, 2016 in a letter to the Adaptive Medias’ Board of Directors.

“We believe the combination of Adaptive Medias and AdSupply could represent a compelling opportunity for both companies and their respective shareholders, and could enhance the business and growth prospects of the combined entities,” said John B. Strong, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Adaptive Medias, Inc. “We have an aggressive, yet systematic, growth strategy for increasing Adaptive Medias’ revenue and earnings potential in 2016 and beyond, which may include a merger with a company like AdSupply or other strategic partnerships that we’re currently pursuing. Although AdSupply’s acquisition price provides value for Adaptive Medias’ shareholders at a substantial premium to the current market price, thus giving clear recognition to Adaptive Medias’ upside potential, it is our fiduciary duty to ensure we pursue all other options available to us. Accordingly, we will evaluate the offer and eventually decide whether or not this offer is in the best interest of our company and our shareholders.”

Adaptive Medias’ Board of Directors will form an advisory committee to evaluate AdSupply’s proposal and make a recommendation to its shareholders. AdSupply’s proposed offer is subject to the completion of confirmatory due diligence by both parties and its financing source, as well as approval by Adaptive Medias’ shareholders.
