SearchMedia Holdings Limited (“SearchMedia” or the “Company”) (NYSE MKT: IDI) ((NYSE MKT: IDI.WS), one of China's leading nationwide multi-platform media companies, today announced that it will establish a joint venture in Shanghai for a new major luxury mall concession (“LCD Joint Venture”). Additionally, the Company announced that it has entered into an agreement for a new private placement of up to 10.0 million common shares, of which the Company has closed the first tranche of 6.1 million shares, with Frost Gamma Investment Trust, an entity affiliated with Dr. Phillip Frost, our largest shareholder, TGC Partners Limited, an entity affiliated with our Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Peter W. H. Tan, TGC Media Investments II Corp., a private investment company based in Singapore, Nan Fung Group (“Nan Fung”), one of current largest investors and Titan Multi-Asset Fund SPC, a fund controlled by Yuanta Asset Management (“Titan Yuanta”).

The new LCD Joint Venture has been formed with Shanghai’s Symbol Media Corporation (“Symbol Media”) to build a new network of large format LCD screens at prominent entry points of high end shopping centers located at major central business district locations in Shanghai, mainly located along the Huai Hai Road and Nanjing West Road vicinity. SearchMedia shall own 51% of the Joint Venture with its local partner Symbol Media and its affiliates owning the remaining 49%. SearchMedia will also have the option to acquire the remaining 49% of the LCD Joint Venture starting in 2014.

Screens for the network are approximately 70 inches in length, allowing advertisers to promote their brands with large digital billboards in high impact locations with prominent street level views. Advertisements are broadcast in intervals which attract more attention to the screens while allowing a higher revenue yield per location. In addition, many of the screen locations are located adjacent to subway stations and busy intersections, providing an even wider consumer reach.
