Rightster (AIM: RSTR), the cloud-based global video distribution and monetisation network that enables content owners to upload content once and commercialise everywhere, announces that on 23 July 2014, the Company was informed that, on 29 April 2014, Charlie Muirhead, the Company’s CEO and Founder, dematerialised his entire holding in order to procure that his shareholding was held within CREST.  This process necessitated the transfer of his entire holding of 7,110,666 ordinary shares of 0.1p each in the capital of the Company (“Ordinary Shares”) to HSBC Client Holdings Nominee (UK) Limited.

Following the transfer, Mr Muirhead’s beneficial interest in the Company remains unchanged and he continues to be the beneficial owner of 7,110,666 Ordinary Shares comprising 3.69% of the Company’s issued share capital.   Mr Muirhead’s shareholding continues to be subject to lock-in arrangements entered into at the time of the Company’s admission to AIM on 12 November 2013.
