Update re Uber lawsuit and Proposed Share Buy Back

 

Taptica International Ltd (AIM: TAP), a global leader in advertising technologies for brand advertising and performance-based mobile marketing, provides the following update in relation to the lawsuit filed by Uber Technologies Inc. ("Uber"):

 

In October 2014, Taptica, alongside a number of other adtech vendors, was retained by Fetch Media Ltd. ("Fetch") to promote Uber's mobile app (the "Uber Campaign"). There was no direct engagement between Uber and the Company or any of its subsidiaries.

Overall, thousands of campaigns ran with Fetch directly liaising with Taptica on a daily basis. As is standard in our business, at the end of each month, reconciliation reports were sent by Taptica to Fetch and the final invoiced amounts were approved by Fetch.

The revenue associated with the Uber Campaign directly relating to the Company does not represent a material portion of Taptica's revenue.

The relationship between Uber and Fetch has been troubled as evidenced by their litigation history and Fetch has even characterized Uber as a "faithless business partner" in the publicly available court documents.

The Company reiterates that it considers the claims to be without merit and, as such, Taptica Ltd. and Taptica, Inc. will aggressively defend against these claims.

Proposed Share Buyback Programme

In addition, the Board is actively considering implementing a further share buy back programme following the Company's Annual General Meeting with the same parameters as the current ongoing programme.
