Notes to Editors 

One Media is a provider of music and video rights to the music industry, with a
strong focus on `nostalgia' performances. Nostalgia is a very fast-growing
market, particularly among the affluent baby boomer generation. Strategically,
One Media's mission is to be a consolidator of music rights, and through a
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 & the
Tremeloes, The Sex Pistols, T.Rex, Lou Reed, Katrina, Mica Paris, Blink 182,
Ashanti, Matt Monro, 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 has
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").

HIGHLIGHTS for year ending October 2010. Increased turnover 53% to GBP
1,217,901 Pre-tax profits up 279% to GBP 249,732. Share buy-back of 52% of the
Company's shares and consolidated back to shareholders to enhance shareholder
value
