MIM MONDO IGEL MEDIA AG has been informed today by its parent company, which is in charge of the international distribution of the library, that no turnover from the library has been realised so far in 2010. This leads to MIM's having used up more than 50% of its equity capital.
The Ordinary Shareholders' Meeting on 22 July 2010 will be used to discuss the loss of equity capital in detail.

MIM MONDO IGEL MEDIA AG is currently suffering from poor distribution results. These are largely due to the current global economic situation, but are exacerbated by MIM's shrinking library.

Neither MIM's sales in German-Speaking Territories and Scandinavia nor its parent company's distribution efforts in the rest of the world have created any effective turnover from the library in 2010. This unexpectedly weak start to the year, combined with normal operational costs and depreciation, leads to MIM's having used up more than 50% of its equity capital. Costs are currently about EUR80 k/month, of which more than EUR50 k is depreciation.

Some agreements already expected have been postponed and are expected by the end of the second quarter.

There has, however, been turnover from the co-production of Laura's Star which has covered the production costs for the partial delivery in the first quarter 2010.

Management expects further revenues in each of the remaining quarters of 2010. MIM should have sufficient liquidity for all business activities due to contracts already signed with reliable, solvent partners.
Expenses and material costs were somewhat lower than in the same period last year, and personnel costs were reduced. Expectations are that in 2010 the company will be cash-flow positive.

The support of the main shareholder, Mondo TV S.p.A., was continued through a subordinated loan.
