The deal, which is slated to close this month, includes DMX’s net debt. The equity value of the transaction is roughly US$53.8 million, Mood Media said.
Mood Media also said it has entered into a private placement financing arrangement in Canada and the U.K. to finance the deal.
It plans to issue 31.8 million shares priced at C$3.60 per share to raise C$114.5 million, before expenses. Additional proceeds from the financing will go toward general corporate purposes, it added.
DMX, which is U.S.-based, is a multi-sensory branding company that uses music, video as well as scent systems to enhance brands to create “lasting connections that encourage” consumer loyalty.
At the end of December 31, DMX had annual sales of $84.6 million. It recorded earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization of $16.5 million, while profit before taxes was $5.6 million.
