Webinar.net is an online presentation platform, offering a simple, engaging, and cost-effective solution for global webinars with branded experiences.

Webinar.net's infrastructure is expected to be incorporated into Xcyte's offerings to provide customers with unlimited attendee scale and drive traffic to create actionable engagement while continuing to enjoy clear, cost-effective pricing.

During the trailing twelve months ended December 31, 2023, the Webinar assets being acquired generated approximately US$2.8 million in revenue (unaudited), approximately US$615,000 EBITDA (unaudited) and approximately US$343,000 net income (unaudited). Certain of the unaudited figures provided by Webinar constitute non-IFRS financial measures (as further described below).

"Acquiring Webinar.net's assets is an important step in scaling up Xcyte from a strategic and financial point of view. We are pleased to welcome a team with decades of experience offering a secure and scalable cloud-based platform. A platform, that is now not only offered standalone, but also included in the suite of services in our recently launched Xperience platform, Xcyte's all-in-one subscription service. We look forward to scaling the Webinar.net product platform and capabilities to further accelerate our revenue and EBITDA growth," said Xcyte CEO Randy Selman.
