Trading Statement

Trading Statement



The Board of Directors of Dori Media Group (“DMG” or “the Company”), the international media company active in the field of television, with a focus on production, distribution, broadcasting and merchandising of Telenovela, announces a trading update following the end of the financial year to 31 December 2009.

Although the last quarter of 2009 showed a significant increase in activity and interest in Dori Media's programmes and content, certain contract negotiations which were anticipated to conclude in 2009 are still on-going, reflecting continued caution by programme buyers in an uncertain economic climate. The directors are confident that despite these delays, agreements will ultimately be reached for much of this business in the current year. Accordingly turnover for the year ended 31 December 2009 is now expected to be between $45 million and $48 million. Consequently, results before tax will also be significantly below market expectations, though this is subject to a final audit.

Early indications support the Management team’s belief that 2010 will prove to be a strong year for Dori Media, given the industry’s positive response to its numerous productions. The Company’s business operations remain stable and cash generative and Dori Media continues to have a strong balance sheet.

The Board of DMG anticipates releasing its preliminary results by the end of February 2010.
