37,500 shares accepted in Bittium Corporation’s directed share issue without consideration

The Board of Directors of Bittium Corporation (the “Company”) has on March 22, 2016, in a manner announced yesterday, decided on a directed share issue without consideration as reward payments to the key persons of the Company (the “Share Issue”). Of the maximum of 58,000 shares offered in the Share Issue, 37,500 shares were accepted. The 37,500 shares issued in the Share Issue are aimed to be registered with the Trade Register and registered on the book-entry accounts of the recipients of the shares on March 24, 2016 and become subject to trading on the trading list of Nasdaq Helsinki on March 29, 2016.

The decision of the directed share issue without consideration was based on the authorization granted to the Board of Directors by the Company's Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held on April 15, 2015. The purpose of the share issue is to combine the interests of shareholders and key personnel to maximize the value of the Company and to commit the key personnel to the Company and to offer them a competitive incentive based on share ownership. There is thus an especially weighty financial reason for the Share Issue.
