Xpediator Plc

("Xpediator" or the "Group")

Issue of Equity

The Board of Xpediator, (AIM: XPD), a leading provider of freight management services across the UK and Europe, notes that    pursuant to the acquisition of Regional Express Limited  ("Regional Express"), as announced on 6 November 2017, a final deferred consideration payment of up to £350,000, based on the performance of Regional Express  is  payable to the vendors of Regional Express.  Regional Express has recently secured a potentially significant framework contract which will require additional investment that is expected to impact upon Regional Express's ability to reach its profit target under the deferred consideration arrangements.  The Board has therefore agreed to pay the maximum deferred consideration to allow the management of Regional Express to develop this potential significant new business opportunity and to focus on the longer-term growth opportunities for Regional Express.

The deferred consideration payment will be settled by the payment in November 2019 of £315,000 in cash  and the issue of new ordinary shares in the Group to the value of £35,000 at the prevailing rate in November 2019 to the vendors of Regional Express (the "Deferred Consideration Shares").

Details of the Deferred Consideration Shares

Application will be made for the Deferred Consideration Shares, which will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares of 5 pence each in the Group, to be admitted to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will occur during November 2019.

The vendors have agreed not to dispose of the Deferred Consideration Shares for a period of twelve months from the date of issue without the prior consent of the Company's nominated adviser and joint broker, SP Angel Corporate Finance LLP, and the Company's joint broker, Cantor Fitzgerald Europe.
