Wizzard Closes Acquisition Of FAB

Wizzard Software (NYSE MKT: WZE), the world’s leading podcast network, announced that it has closed on the acquisition of Digital Entertainment International Ltd. (“FAB”), a leading distributor of digital entertainment media in Asia.

FAB’s intelligent kiosks are used by consumers to purchase and download movies, music, television shows and other forms of digital entertainment at over 10,000 locations throughout China. In fiscal 2010, FAB generated revenues of $55.5 million and net income of $11.5 million. In fiscal 2011, FAB generated revenues of $70.8 million and net income of $14.7 million, as discussed in Wizzard’s definitive proxy statement filed with the SEC on June 15, 2012. Wizzard expects the acquisition to boost its 2012 adjusted earnings per share and significantly affect its fourth quarter results.

"We are very pleased to have completed the acquisition of FAB and to begin this new chapter in Wizzard’s international development," said Chris Spencer, Wizzard CEO. "Throughout this entire process we have been impressed with the expertise and dedication of FAB's management team and associates and we expect this combination to create substantial value for our shareholders. We are enthusiastic about combining Wizzard's digital media distribution platform with FAB’s digital media distribution kiosk network in China, the world's fastest-growing market. We believe this partnership creates one of the world's premier digital entertainment media companies at a time when mobile computing is driving digital media consumption to the forefront of the entertainment industry.”

As a result of the closing of the acquisition, Wizzard Software Corp. will change its name to FAB Universal Corp. and change its ticker symbol from NYSE MKT:WZE to NYSE MKT:FU, effective October 9 th, 2012.

Legal due diligence was performed by King & Wood and accounting and tax due diligence was performed by a ‘big four’ accounting and consulting firm.
