eXp Realty Launches Direct Purchase Program for Agents and Brokers

5% of Commission Income to Be Used to Purchase Company Common Stock

BELLINGHAM, WA–(Marketwired – Apr 30, 2015) – eXp Realty International Corporation (OTCQB:EXPI), The Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage™, today announced that starting May 1st all eXp Realty Agents and Brokers will be eligible to contribute 5% of their commission income to the purchase of eXp Realty International Corporation stock as part of a Direct Purchase Program.

Agents and Brokers who have signed an Addendum to their Independent Contractor Agreement shall have 5% of the commission that would have normally been paid to the agent or broker at close instead retained by the company as “Paid in Capital” and Agents and Brokers will receive shares from Treasury. The shares will be restricted shares carrying a restrictive legend. The number of shares issuable will be determined using a price per share that is a 20% discount to the average closing price of the Company’s common stock over the 30-day period preceding the last day of the month, subject to the other terms and conditions of the Program. Shares will then be issued the following month to those agents who contributed and will be held in book form with the Company transfer agent unless delivery is requested by the agent or broker.

eXp Realty, CEO and Founder Glenn Sanford stated, “We are committed to agent ownership. Many agents are accustomed to paying 5%, 6% or even 7% franchise fees. At eXp Realty, a non-franchise operation, we believe that those monies are better put to use for the direct benefit of the agent by allowing them, if they wish to, to increase their ownership stake in the brokerage on favorable terms rather than going to a third party franchisor. Agents and brokers of any brokerage ultimately generate the sales and revenues for the brokerage and at eXp Realty, we believe they should be owners, whether through this program, our Icon Agent program, or simply by doing those things that good, productive professionals are going to do naturally by being in the business.”
