Keating Capital, Inc. (Nasdaq: KIPO) (www.KeatingCapital.com) announced that, on November 6, 2013, portfolio company Jumptap, Inc. completed its merger with Millennial Media, Inc. (NYSE: MM). The merger agreement was initially announced by Jumptap and Millennial Media on August 13, 2013.
Keating Capital invested $5.0 million in Jumptap’s Series G convertible preferred stock on June 29, 2012. As part of the merger, the holders of Series G convertible preferred stock were entitled to receive shares of Millennial Media common stock with a value equal to 1.75x their invested capital based on the closing merger price of $7.05 per share. At the closing of the merger, in exchange for its Jumptap Series G preferred stock and after certain share adjustments, Keating Capital received 1,247,893 shares of Millennial Media’s common stock with a total value of approximately $8.8 million, based on the closing merger price. As of September 30, 2013, the fair value of the Company’s investment in Jumptap was marked at $7.2 million, which reflected $2.2 million of unrealized appreciation.
Pursuant to a contractual lockup agreement, Keating Capital may not sell any shares of Millennial Media common stock for the initial 90-day period following the closing. Beginning on or about February 4, 2014, Keating Capital may sell up to one-third of its shares. All lockup restrictions expire on or about May 5, 2014. The ultimate value that Keating Capital may be able to realize on its Jumptap investment will depend on the actual trading price of Millennial Media’s common stock as and when it ultimately disposes of its shares.
In addition, at the closing of the merger, Keating Capital was required to set aside in escrow a total of 135,194 shares of Millennial Media for a one-year period following the closing as partial security for potential stockholder indemnification obligations.
Keating Capital’s investment in Jumptap represents the sixth portfolio company (out of a total of 21 portfolio company investments) to have completed an IPO or sale transaction since Keating Capital’s initial portfolio company investment in January 2010.
