Easydate non-exec sells

Date: Monday 29 Nov 2010

LONDON (ShareCast) - Easydate non-executive Martin Higginson has taken advantage of the recent strong trading statement from the online dating company to sell nearly all of his shares.

At the beginning of October, Higginson exercised options over 398,600 shares. He did not own any shares before then and he has sold 398,000 shares at 95p each, raising £378,000.

The company’s broker Cenkos says that the share disposal, which came during a lock-in period following the flotation in June, was “in order to satisfy demand from a new institutional investor”.

No option price was mentioned in the announcement when Higginson took up his options but the presently exercisable options mentioned in the flotation prospectus cost 3p a share. Easydate raised £8.8m net from a placing at 60p a share, when it joined AIM.

As well as the 600 remaining shares, Higginson still has options over 797,160 shares. Higginson is chief executive of AIM-quoted interactive gaming firm NetPlay TV. Higginson owns 7.86% of NetPlay TV, which is worth just over £1.6m at 7.38p a share.

Easydate finance director Mark Doughty has bought 4,600 shares at 106p each. These are his first shares but he also holds options over 544,000 shares.

In the first nine months of 2010, revenues grew at 30% a quarter thanks to higher marketing spending.

Since floating, Easydate has acquired US rival Cupid for £4.4m. The growth figures exclude Cupid.
