Trading Statement



Tel-Aviv, Israel – January 21, 2011 – Dori Media Group Ltd. (“DMG” or the "Company”), the international media company active in the field of television and new media, with a focus on production, distribution, broadcasting and merchandising of Drama and Telenovela, announces a trading update following the end of the financial year to 31 December 2010.

Turnover for the year ended 31 December 2010 is expected to be between $45 million and $48 million. Consequently, results before tax are also expected to be significantly below market expectations, subject to final audit.

Although the second half of 2010 shows a continuing increase in activity and interest in Dori Media's programming and content, a large portion of income generated from a major production that was expected to be fully realized in 2010 is now expected to be realized in 2011 as a result of scheduling issues experienced by a client. Dori Media will complete the production and the Company is confident that the majority of its income from the production will be booked during 2011. A number of negotiations for agreements initiated at MIPCOM which were expected to be closed in 2010 are also on-going and are expected to be closed during 2011.

Early indications support the Management team’s belief that 2011 will prove to be stronger year for Dori Media, given the industry’s positive response to its productions. The Company’s business operations remain stable and positive 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 2011.
