Stocks in this article: CHRM

BEIJING, Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Charm Communications Inc. (Nasdaq: CHRM), China's leading domestic advertising agency, has been named China Central Television's ("CCTV") "Top Advertising Agency" for the ninth consecutive year and tenth overall, extending its dominant run as the go-to agency for advertisers on China's largest television network.

At CCTV's 2011 Top Ten Advertising Agencies Award ceremony, which was held in Beijing on February 23rd, Charm was named "Top Advertising Agency" based on the total amount of advertising spending placed on behalf of its clients on CCTV. In addition to the Company's nine consecutive top-place rankings, Charm has been among the top ten in each of the past 15 years.

The CCTV Top Ten Advertising Agencies Award honors advertising agencies for outstanding contributions and strong support for the network, and is presented by leaders of China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce ("SAIC"), the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) and CCTV.

"CCTV continues to be the clear leader in television advertising and is the platform leading brands trust when looking to reach a national audience. Our CCTV expertise will remain our core competitive strength, as no other agency understands or leverages CCTV media for clients better than we do," said Mr. He Dang, founder, chairman and CEO of Charm, upon acceptance of the award. "Over the past two years, we have been linking the brand-building value of CCTV with the targeted and return-driven nature of the internet, which has helped to spur the growth of our digital business and the development of our integrated advertising platform."
