Statement Re Member of Controlling Shareholder Group Not to Proceed with Tender Offer

DORI MEDIA GROUP

MEMBER OF CONTROLLING SHAREHOLDER GROUP NOT TO PROCEED WITH TENDER OFFER

Dori Media Group Ltd. (“Dori Media”, “DMG”, the “Company” or the “Group”), the international media company active in the field of television, with a focus on production, distribution, broadcasting and merchandising of Telenovela and Drama, announces that, further to a letter received on 13 April 2011 from a member of the Company’s controlling shareholders’ group (“the Shareholder”), the Company yesterday received confirmation from the Shareholder that it has decided not to move forward with the contemplated tender offer.

At the Company’s Extraordinary General Meeting held on 12 May 2011, shareholders of the Company approved the cancellation of the admission of its Ordinary Shares to trading on AIM (the “Delisting”) which is scheduled to take place at 7.00 a.m. on Friday, 20 May 2011. Following Delisting, the Ordinary Shares will not be listed on any publicly quoted market, although the Ordinary Shares will continue to be registered with CREST and shareholders will be able to settle off-market transactions through the CREST system until further advised. However, in order to provide a measure of liquidity in the Ordinary Shares following the Cancellation, the Company intends to set up and maintain a matched bargain settlement facility, although there is no guarantee of the form that the facility will take, or that the Company will be able to set one up in the short term. Under this facility (assuming that one is established), persons wishing to buy or sell Ordinary Shares will be able to leave an indication with the facility provider that they are prepared to buy and sell Ordinary Shares at an agreed price. If the facility provider is able to match that order with an opposite sell or buy instruction, it will contact both parties and effect the order. The contact details of the matched bargain settlement facility provider, if and once arranged, will be made available on the Company’s website.
