OneMove™ Announces Take Over Bid

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2012) - OneMove Technologies Inc. ("OneMove" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:OM), the provider of the leading web-based real estate transaction platform and the creator of the largest and fastest growing online community of conveyancing professionals, announced today that Plantro Ltd. and Seastone Investments Limited issued a news release late yesterday announcing that they have launched an unsupported take over bid to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company which are not owned by them at a price of $0.425 per share payable in cash. Plantro and Seastone Investments are controlled by brothers Matthew Proud, formerly a director and Chair of the Board of OneMove, and Tyler Proud respectively. A copy of the news release can be viewed at www.SEDAR.com.

The Company was unable to support the bid for a number of reasons, including the following:

  • the lack of time afforded the Company to respond. A firm proposal was not received by the Company until just before 4:00 pm (EST) and a response was required by 5:00 pm (EST);
  • a requirement that the Company deal exclusively with Plantro and cease all communications with other prospective bidders;
  • a requirement that the Company provide a break fee tied to the exclusivity such that the fee became payable should the parties even fail to negotiate a support agreement.

In the context of the bid price providing a small premium to the weighted trading average of the Company's shares over the past 30 trading days, the Company did not believe it was in the best interests of the shareholders to agree to support the bid.
