Trading Update - Cessation of Business

Trading Update

Cessation of Business

Further to the trading update of 5 August 2013 the directors of the Company (the "Directors") have now concluded their review of Company's current operations and prospects. The impact of increasing technology, hosting and operating charges on the Company's limited financial resources, coupled with the inability of the Company to obtain an appropriate Gaming License in its own right are proving prohibitive to the Company being able to launch the Intabet platform in any meaningful capacity as previously envisaged. The Directors believe that continued development of Intabet would prove a drain on the Company that it cannot sustain in the absence of meaningful revenues or investment. Together with continued legacy issues facing the Company taking up substantial amounts of management time detracting their attentions from the operating business, the Directors have taken the difficult decision to cease development and operation of the Intabet platform and substantially all of the Company's trading business.

As a result the Company will not be in a position to deliver the betting platform to Box Nation. Goal Millions will continue to operate under licence through Vamagaming, but with next to no promotional budget, its contribution to the Company's revenue stream is expected to be negligible. With Media Corp now having ceased substantially all of its trading business the Company will now become an investing company under rule 15 of the AIM Rules for Companies. In doing so, the Company must adopt an investing policy which will be subject to shareholder approval at a general meeting. Following the adoption of an investing policy it is likely that the Company will dispose of its interest in Intabet and its associated intellectual property.

As disclosed on 5 August, since being suspended the Company has been approached by a number of parties with proposals for Media Corp that might represent better prospects for the shareholders. It is with this in mind, and one proposal in particular which would bring with it new directors and strategic investment, that the Directors have taken this action. The Directors believe the continuation of the existing business is no longer viable without material investment, the absence of which would risk the solvency of the Company.

Notice of a general meeting of the Company (the "Circular") detailing the proposed investing policy will be sent to shareholders in due course and a further announcement made at that time. The Circular will also outline resolutions to reorganise the share capital of the Company and increase the authorities to allow it to allot shares for cash, enabling it to raise sufficient funds to begin implementing the investing policy.

It is the Directors' intention to publish the report and accounts for the period ended 30 September 2012 and the interim accounts for the period ended 31 March 2013 prior to the general meeting called by the Circular.

Change of Year End Update and Temporary Suspension to Trading

Further to the announcement of 2 November 2012 in respect of the change of the Company's accounting reference date the Company regrets to announce that, due to a failure on its part to make the requisite filings at Companies House, it has not, as previously represented, formally changed its accounting reference date to 31 December and it remains 30 September.

This means that the Company has missed the deadline of 31st March 2013 to publish its annual accounts for the year ended September 30th as required by Rule 19 of the AIM Rules for Companies.

As a result and in accordance with the AIM Rules, trading in the Company's ordinary shares on AIM will be suspended from 12:45pm today, and continue until such time as the audited accounts for the period ended 30 September 2012 are published.

The Company will publish the annual accounts as soon as practicable and will also continue to make announcements as and when there are any developments that require notification under the AIM Rules.

Company")

Trading Update

Following the trading announcement of 12 December 2012 the Company is pleased to provide the following update.

The company continues to focus on commercialising existing intellectual property and developing further new technologies. To accelerate the commercialisation process Media Corp intends to appoint value added resellers ("Resellers") to act as additional channels to market and, where appropriate licences exist, operate the platform for or on behalf of betting operators and licencing all or part of the software on a white label basis.

This model will allow the Company to realise value and income from the Intabet software platform earlier than otherwise would have been possible, the company has proposals with a number of operators and expects to make further announcements shortly.

The first product to be made available through such Resellers is called Goal Millions, which is a unique skills based game where players can win various prizes including a weekly £1M jackpot for correctly predicting the fastest six goals to be scored across a selection of football matches. Subject to final licence arrangements, we expect Goal Millions to launch on Saturday 30th March. Under the terms of the Reseller agreement, the Company will charge royalties and licence fees. Goal Millions is unique and offering a £1million prize for a £1 stake is attractive as an additional revenue stream/bonus opportunity for existing operators.

The company anticipates that its BetComparer site will go live slightly later than planned on April 22nd , subject to final platform testing - the platform will have football, racing, and tennis and and a full suite of sports to be rolled out according to the sporting calendar to ensure that it remains a useful resource for the betting public throughout the summer.

Financing

Further to the announcement of 16 May 2012 in respect of a secured loan agreement the Company has agreed with the loan provider certain changes to the terms of the facility and a new convertible loan agreement is in place, giving instant access to £250,000 (the "Loan"). The Loan will be issued in units of £1 and interest is chargeable at 5.25%per annum which will be rolled up quarterly in arrears and included as principle to be repaid or converted, the notes are convertible on notice at a price of 75% of the previous day's close. The company intends to use the proceeds for working capital, the lender has agreed in principle to make up to £500,000 available. The company is continuing to investigate other medium and long term funding options.

Change of registered office

The company also announces that it is changing its head office location to 45 Carnaby Street, London, W1F 9PP. The relocation is to smaller, lower cost offices.

Phil Jackson, Chairman commented, "We're working hard as we enter the commercialisation phase of the Intabet platform and related technology, I'm pleased with the discussions we are having alongside our resellers with operators and others and we are looking forward to announcing additional partnerships in the very near future. In the meantime we are continuing to reduce unnecessary costs, explore funding options and seek new customers both in the UK and around the world as well as continue to positively engage and address inherited, historical issues."

Directorate change and trading Update

Directorate Change

The Company announces that, following the placing into administration of Eyeconomy Limited (of which he was the Managing Director) Mark Butt has resigned from the board with immediate effect.

Sale of On The Box

The Company also announces that it has today sold its publishing asset, www.onthebox.com ('Onthebox') for £75,000. According to management accounts Onthebox had revenues of c.£8,000 in the period from 1 January 2012 to 30 November 2012. It is not considered a core asset and would require further investment for any growth, investment the directors consider is better used on the Company's Intabet platform. The proceeds of the sale will be used for general working capital.

Financial update

Finally, the board regrets to announce the discovery of a potential liability to HMRC in respect of previously unpaid National Insurance. The directors are in the process of working with HMRC to establish the full extent of the liability and an agreed payment programme. Based on the correspondence to date it is the directors' belief that the amount is manageable based on the Company's current resources. As soon as the liability position is clear, a further announcement will be made.

The amount outstanding covers the period prior to 2010 during which time former directors (and others), of the Company were paid by the Company as consultants to the Group where they should have in fact been treated as employees and the associated National Insurance paid by both the employer and employee to HMRC.

Phil Jackson, Chairman, commented: "With the Eyeconomy in administration, Mark Butt no longer had any real executive function within the Group and it was only logical that he step down from the board and we wish him well for the future.

I am very pleased to have realised some cash out of an underperforming asset like Onthebox and the funds will help us achieve our goal of launching the Intabet platform. To this end we are in discussions with a number of parties who have shown an interest to licence part of our technology which would enable us to start generating revenues from our technology and allow us to start to move forward despite the continued legacy issues from the previous management such as that with HMRC."

Further announcements will be made as appropriate.
