RNS Number : 8300N
Vitesse Media PLC
11 August 2017

The following amendment has been made to the 'Directorate change, holding(s) in Company and proposed fund raising' announcement released earlier today, 11 August 2017, at 11.11am under RNS No 7917N.


Niki Baker has been appointed as Executive Director with special responsibility for Events, not Managing Director as originally disclosed.


All other details remain unchanged.


The full amended text is shown below.


 11 August 2017

Vitesse Media plc

("Vitesse" or the "Company")


Directorate change, holding(s) in Company

and proposed fund raising


Vitesse Media Plc, the AIM-listed digital media and events business, announces that Simon Stilwell has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer of the Company with immediate effect. As a consequence, Niki Baker, formerly Chief Executive Officer, has been appointed as Executive Director with special responsibility for Events with immediate effect to focus on expanding the Company's flourishing events business.


Simon was until 2015 Chief Executive of Liberum, the Investment Bank that he co-founded in 2007 and grew from a start up to £55m of revenue and 170 people in seven profitable years. Prior to Liberum, he served as Head of Sales, Small Companies, at Collins Stewart plc and was also a director at Beeson Gregory Limited. He was commissioned into the Gloucestershire Regiment in 1992 and served in a variety of countries and roles before starting his City career in 1996. Simon graduated with a BSc in Geological Sciences from Durham University. Since leaving Liberum, Simon has pursued a number of different business interests.


The Company has been notified that earlier today, Simon Stilwell and Anthony Cross have each acquired 6,373,799 and 7,013,799 existing ordinary shares of 1 penny each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") respectively, at 2.5 pence per Ordinary Share. Simon Stilwell and Anthony Cross' resulting holdings are 7,013,799 and 7,013,799 Ordinary Shares respectively, each representing approximately 10.9 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital.


Anthony Cross has worked in fund management for 27 years and for the last 20 years has successfully managed a range of funds for Liontrust Asset Management. This investment is being made in a personal capacity and he has no role within the Company.


Simultaneously, Chris Ingram has sold 8,387,598 Ordinary Shares. This reduces his holding to 8,387,597 Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 13.0 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital. In addition, at the same time, Sara Williams has sold 5,000,000 Ordinary Shares. This reduces her holding to 3,892,263 Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 6.0 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital.


The Company also announces that subject to shareholder approval it is considering an issue of new Ordinary Shares by way of a placing to raise up to £2.0 million, the proceeds of which will be used to repay the Company's current indebtedness and for working capital purposes. In particular, the proceeds will be used to fund the development of the Company's Events business, including the successful 'Woman in.." series as well as expanding the capabilities of the Company's existing digital platforms and to fund new business development. The new business areas will concentrate on the provision of media and equity research for both institutional and private investors. The Company has been informed that Messrs Stilwell and Cross intend in aggregate to invest £0.5 million in the proposed fund raising.  A further announcement will be made in due course.


David Smith, Chairman of Vitesse, commented:

"On behalf of the Board, I am pleased to welcome Simon to the Company and look forward to working with him in shaping the future direction of business. I wish to place on record the Board's appreciation of Niki's role as Chief Executive over the past 5 years and look forward to her continuing contribution leading our growing events business."
