AirMedia Increases Share Repurchase Program To US$40 Million

BEIJING, Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AirMedia Group Inc. ("AirMedia" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: AMCN), a leading operator of out-of-home advertising platforms in China targeting mid-to-high-end consumers, today announced that its board of directors has approved to increase the size of its previously announced share repurchase program to US$40 million from US$20 million and to extend the termination date of the share repurchase program to March 20, 2014 from March 20, 2013. The other terms of the share repurchase program will remain unchanged.

Under the expanded share repurchase program, AirMedia has been authorized, but not obligated, by its board of directors to repurchase a total of up to US$40 million worth of its own outstanding American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") until March 20, 2014. As of September 23, 2012, AirMedia had repurchased an aggregate of 4,347,601 ADSs on the open market for a total consideration of US$13.1 million, and is now authorized to purchase up to US$26.9 million worth of additional ADSs under the expanded share repurchase program.

The expanded share repurchase program will allow the Company to make more sizable repurchases. The repurchases will be made on the open market at prevailing market prices pursuant to Rule 10b5-1, in negotiated transactions off the market, in block trades or otherwise from time to time. The timing and extent of any purchases will depend upon market conditions, the trading price of ADSs and other factors, and be subject to the restrictions relating to volume, price and timing in accordance with applicable law. AirMedia expects to implement this share repurchase program in a manner consistent with market conditions and the interests of its shareholders. AirMedia's board of directors will review the share repurchase program periodically, and may authorize adjustment of its terms and size accordingly. AirMedia plans to fund repurchases made under this program from its available cash balance.
