SearchMedia Announces New Luxury Mall LCD Advertising Joint Venture; Completion Of New $6.1 Million Common Share Investment

The LCD Joint Venture intends to acquire the rights to many prestigious high end shopping centers in prime locations in Shanghai including CITIC Plaza, Cloud Nine Mall, Grand Gateway Mall, Hong Kong Plaza, Jiu Guang Emporium, K11 New World Malls, Metro City, Printemps China, Raffles City, The 6 th Goods Shopping Mall and Xin Tian Di.

Peter W.H. Tan, Chief Executive Officer of SearchMedia, remarked, “We are very excited for our new LCD Joint Venture which will give us a very strong presence in heavily trafficked, Grade A shopping centers. Advertisers strongly desire access to these prominent locations with high scarcity value, especially since our LCD displays are very close to the point of purchase. Approximately 40% of all global luxury sales are now generated in China, with much of the sales from Grade A luxury shopping centers. We believe this new agreement will allow us to provide a very attractive long term advertising solution for many of our international, national and local advertisers, especially luxury good brands. We anticipate that the network will be built out first within Shanghai and then expanded to other Tier I and Tier II cities throughout China. As evidenced through this new concession and our recently announced new nationwide concession with Home Inns & Hotel Management Inc. (“Home Inns”), we expect to continue to add new concessions with prominent partners that will accelerate our growth and create value for our shareholders.”

The Company has also closed the first tranche of a new common share private placement of $6,100,000 at a price of $1.00 per share to primarily finance our investment of the new LCD Joint Venture and the previously announced new concession with Home Inns. As part of this new investment, all of our investors in the Convertible Note Offering completed in February 2012 have agreed to also convert their Convertible Notes (including accrued interest) into common shares. The private placement contemplates a second tranche of an additional 3.9 million shares to be completed by September 30, 2012. Proforma for the new $6.1 million private placement and conversion of the Company’s existing Convertible Notes, the Company will have basic and diluted shares outstanding of 27.5 million shares.
