NEWARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IDT Corporation (NYSE: IDT; IDT.C) today announced that September 14, 2009 will be the distribution date for the pro rata tax-free spin-off of the common shares of CTM Media Holdings, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of IDT, to IDT’s stockholders.
The registration statement filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 became effective on September 8, 2009.
On the distribution date, each IDT stockholder will receive one share of CTM Media Holdings Class A common stock for every three shares of IDT common stock, one share of CTM Media Holdings Class B common stock for every three shares of IDT Class B common stock, and one share of CTM Media Holdings Class C common stock for every three shares of IDT Class A common stock.
As of August 3, 2009, the record date for the distribution, there were a total of approximately 3.3 million shares of IDT Class A, approximately 15.5 million shares of IDT Class B and approximately 4.2 million shares of IDT common stock issued and outstanding.

CTM and IDT expect that CTM Media Holdings Class A common stock and Class B common stock will be quoted on the Pink OTC Markets under the symbols CTMM and CTMX, respectively, beginning on September 14, 2009, the distribution date. The CUSIP number for Class A common stock is 22944D 104. The CUSIP number for Class B common stock is 22944D 203.
Shares of IDT common stock and Class B Common Stock will continue to trade “regular way” on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) through the period leading up to the distribution date.
