strong focus on `nostalgia' performances. Nostalgia is a very fast-growing

steady stream of acquisitions since joining Plus in September 2006, it has
built a rights library including music by Ike and Tina Turner, George McCrae,
Edwin Starr, Marmalade The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Brian Poole &
theTremeloes, The Sex Pistols, T.Rex, Lou Reed, Katrina, Mica Paris, Blink 182,
Ashanti, MattMonro Jnr, Tony Christie, Anita Harris, Space, Rick Wakeman, Fat
Boy Slim, Pavarotti and over 1200 hours of classical music, to name but a very
few. It enjoys sales in the fast-growing digital music and video market, as
well as the traditional music industry. During 2009 One Media signed strategic
deals with EMI Music Publishing, Sony ATV, and Universal Music Publishing in
music catalogue representation deals. One Media is now an eligible company for
the Enterprise Investment Scheme ("EIS") and the Venture Capital Trust ("VCT").
