    • New Media &  Interactive Marketing Services Trends 8 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • All Things Considered, Online Advertising Growth is Expected U.S. online ad spending to reach $24.9 billion in 2008 Reforecast down from $25.9 billion forecasted in March 2008 17.4% growth is significant relative to other media sectors (eMarketer 2008) Search remains the dominant category Source: eMarketer, 2008.    IDC recently stated its previous forecast of 10% growth in U.S. online ad spending in 2009 to be "too optimistic“ The number of dissenting voices and skeptics is increasing with regard to positive online advertising growth % in 2009 9 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Expectations and themes for 2009 IAB 2009 Themes (source Web site) Interactive continues to grow despite strong economic headwinds Medium girded by its breadth of options, from above-the-line to below-the-line Consumers increasingly embracing digital media in all forms Share shift by marketers from offline to online to tap into the variety, reach, targetability, and effectiveness of interactive media Emerging platforms provide new opportunities for marketers to engage and learn from their customers Google 2009 Themes (source 10K) Expect continued growth in the future, but at a declining growth rate Improve display ad relevance and terminate relationships with network members who do not meet quality requirements Acquisitions that enhance expertise in engineering, technology and product offerings Grow its own sites since profit margins for AdSense are lower because of shared advertiser fees Increasing cost of revenues as a result of forecasted increases in traffic acquisition costs, data center costs and credit card and other transaction fees, as well as content acquisition costs 10 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Peachtree Media Advisors 2009 Themes Back to the fundamentals – Media 101: Media informs and helps people become a better at what they do or want to do The new “scale” will be specific eyeballs, not just traffic Continued movement to niche-environments with category-specific advertisers 100K gamers or green enthusiasts are more valuable to marketers than 1mm entertainment buffs Social media is an evolving train that cannot be stopped (cut off – the long tail will reemerge) Social media will get better, stronger and more meaningful even as brand advertisers pull back Recommendations by real or perceived friends are the most powerful forms of influence Online video has an identity crises - television viewership is at an all-time high Interactive marketing services will be revived by e-commerce companies Lead gen and performance based offering higher quality traffic will be preferred to display advertising 11 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • What a recovery will look like (in a perfect new media world) New Debt Issuance – Q1 2009 Paper flowing indicates confidence in expected future cash flows by corporations Commodities Prices – Q2 2009 Decrease in gold indicates a flight to better returns on investment versus quality Increase in oil prices indicates more goods being shipped and more commerce Interest Rates – Q3 2009 Increase in interest rates represents a competitive environment for investment capital Stabilized home prices – Q4 2009 Housing stabilization will be helped from stimulus package and relatively recession-proof sectors in the economy (healthcare, government, college, etc.) producing first time buyers Jobs – Q1 2010 A decrease in the unemployment rate is a lagging indicator that the economy is growing Public market equity values will begin to increase significantly at this point Substantial Increase in Advertising – Q2 2010 Marketing and advertising will increase significantly to reach a re-energized consumer Increased M&A activity – Q3 2010 Buying is typically preferred to building – who has time to build when Christmas is right around the corner? 12 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Ad Spending Moving to Niche Environments The effects that cable television had on broadcast TV are the same effects that niche Web sites are having on the large portals…sites developing niche content are increasingly attracting loyal and devoted audiences Brand advertisers have cut the long-tail out of their budgets (for the moment) Social networking and user- generated content sites are evolving into niche environments “Community” is back, except this time it is category- specific Gamer/Casual Gamer Green Living Moms/Pregnancy Movies Tech/Gadgets Peachtree Media Advisors, Inc. & InnerVision Labs Travel/Buddy Etc. 13 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Social Media Growth – Bloggers & Online Marketers Social networks are providing blogging platforms for their constituents Blogging has become a truly mass media comScore MediaMetrix (August 2008) Blogs: 77.7 mil unique visitors in the US Facebook: 41.0 mil and MySpace 75.1 mil Total Internet audience 188.9 million eMarketer (May 2008) 94.1 million US blog readers in 2007 (50% of Internet users) 22.6 million US bloggers in 2007 (12%) Universal McCann (March 2008) 184 million WW have started a blog and 26.4 US 346 million WW read blogs and 60.3 US 77% of active Internet users read blogs Ad spending on U.S. social-networking sites to reach $2.15 billion by 2010 (eMarketer 2008) Source: eMarketer, 2008.    14 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Types of Content Posted on Social Networks “What do you do with your social networking profile?” Active Internet Universe Source: Universal McCann Study 2008. 15 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • “Bloggers are influencing the new media landscape” Universal McCann By 2012, more than 145 million people – or 67% of the US Internet population – will be reading blogs at least once Key Social Media Platforms per month (Univ McCann) The number of people creating blogs in the US will also grow reaching 34.7 million people by 2012— 16% of the Internet population US blog advertising will reach $746 million in 2012, up from $283 million in 2007 (eMarketer) All blogs are not created equal though (Technorati Authority Top 100) Source: Universal McCann Study 2008. 16 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • The newspaper bail‐out could be the blogosphere Social media is transforming the way people interact The number of people getting their product & lifestyle information from a blog after a Web search is exponentially higher than that for newspapers Blogging receives a disproportionately small share of the advertising spend The #1 problem with blogging is credibility Newspapers must radically rethink their business models Becoming a rating service or journalistic grader for the blogging community is one way to generate more revenue Newspapers can become a TRUSTe for journalistic integrity and brand-safe environment Bloggers could pass some type of test to become a NY Times, Wall Street Journal or USA Today Accredited News Source Newspapers would police the integrity of the content Penalties for not sourcing facts Discontinued membership would affect advertising dollars Newspapers could leverage their ad sales to develop blogger ad networks 17 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Place‐Based & Digital Out‐of‐Home Media  18 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Place based media/digital signage Digital out-of-home companies are at the intersection of several important “long-term” trends Shift from traditional to alternative media channels Shift from static to digital media Increasing advertiser awareness in the power of the retail environment Increasing need for mass reach media vehicles with local targeting capabilities out-of-home represents a substantial roll-up opportunity still Advertisers “get it,” but do not want to risk it…at least right now Digital OOH companies are convincing brand marketer first and then the next step is brand marketer to get advertising agency on board Sales cycle is unsustainably long Targeted lifestyle destinations with endemic advertising bases are better positioned Consumer leisure destinations Bars and restaurants Spas and gyms Movie theaters, parks and family entertainment centers 19 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • New out‐of‐home/narrowcast networks reach “on the go” consumers Television Newspaper/ Magazines Theaters Billboards Malls/Stores Generate Awareness Drive Interest Impact Sales Out Out of Home of Home - $5.1B Radio - Radio $17.9B Malls Cinema - $0.350B Retail Malls - $0.200B Super Markets Arbitron Study, March 2004 20 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC.

    • New Media  M&A Environment 26 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Current M&A Environment ‐ It is a buyer’s market except buyers are not buying Value is directly tied to expected future cash flows and there is disagreement with estimates Few new media targets are profitable ROI on previous splashy acquisitions and investments is difficult to calculate in this environment Seller choices are to be profitable, raise capital in a difficult environment or lower valuation expectations Online media valuations across the board have decreased There is a clear disconnect with valuation expectations today and where they were at one and two years ago Sellers refuse to sell at current valuation multiples Premium will be placed on the fundamentals: Media101 Highly engaged audience – media kit with targeting a specific demographic group Recurring and entrenched category specific advertising base Transactions to settle in the 10x to 12x EBITDA range Valuation gap: Buyers want 6x to 8x EBITDA; sellers want 14x to 16x EBITDA 27 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • What this means for New Media/Internet Sellers Interactive advertising and marketing services valuations have dropped significantly in the last year In the near-term, buyers will put a premium on EBITDA, direct relationships with advertisers and consistent revenue Technology and application providers will raise money but have few buyers In the short-term, this is not a good capital raise environment for digital media companies VC’s have taken a “picks and shovels” mentality to digital media – they are only focusing on tools, enabling technology and applications Unfortunately, the advertising gold for the publisher/miners is fickle and elusive Follow the money and read what the boss reads Every VC professional under the age of 40 is reading up on green tech and healthcare The digital media M&A market will rebound in late 2009 and early 2010 Buyers will expect a one-to-one relationship with highly engaged audiences Companies relying totally on ad networks for revenue and search for its audience will be at a slight disadvantage when the acquisition wave starts Buyers will seek to buy new and social media “brands” first 28 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Pros & Cons (Strategic vs. Private Equity/Venture Capital) Strategic Acquirer Pros Private Equity/VC Pros Achieve highest valuation possible Participate in upside (5-7 years) Ability to structure an earn-out Be a consolidator and not a “consolidatee” Sell on forward earnings Maintain autonomy and control* Accept paper as well as cash Answer only to your Board of consideration at Closing Directors/Investors Leverage buyer’s sales and operational Take some chips off the table infrastructures Strategic Acquirer Cons Private Equity/VC Cons Having someone to report to Lower valuation Sticking to a rigid budget May be difficult to change course (PE/VC Potential personality conflicts between firms do not speak the language of the employees (“we own you”) landscape as well as Strategic Buyer) Potential loss of corporate identity Typically unfavorable deal structures when timeframe is more than 7 years *Preferred shares that Pay-In-Kind or interest rate is more shares instead of cash resulting in loss of control 29 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Peachtree Maximizes Value 30 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • How do you value a digital or new media company? Technology Media Multiples Multiples Engagement by a Certain Demographic Group Digital Technology & Relevant & Distribution Media Kit + Platform Tech Savvy Engaging Delivery Content Web Mobile Platform = Video Success Distribution w/o content cannot Software & survive Technology Media World World 31 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • In many cases, the traditional ways of determining value fall short Comparable private M&A transactions Public market company valuations Discounted cash flow analysis Unfortunately, value is in the eye of the buyer Most transactions in new media are not Comparable private M&A transactions comparable, each deal has its own unique attributes Public companies are generally larger, more Public market company valuations established entities that have diversified revenue streams across several media sectors Expansion = Capex Discounted cash flow analysis Growth = Investment in Staff & Marketing Both lower cash flow 32 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Driving or maximizing the value of your company in a capital raise Investors look for long-term expansion contracts (OOH) and repeat customers (Digital Media) Money is put to work sooner rather than later Functional network operating centers (OOH) Working and scalable infrastructure Proven and capable management teams Profitable business model (or soon to be profitable) Strong exit Strategic buyers seek profitable businesses with national networks (OOH) or recurring revenue base (Digital Media) Ability to take them in a different direction (complementary product offering) Leverage their existing infrastructure (back-office accounting, sales & marketing) Pump their products through your existing sales channels Bring technical capabilities that you posses to their business Believe that they can do what you do, better and faster, but want your footprint Are tired of competing with you 33 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC. 
    • Maximizing the value of your company for a financial or strategic buyer Strategic buyers seek to acquire at least one of the following: Growing businesses New technology Customer base - ability to sell their products to your customers Product/media channel - leveraging their sales infrastructure to secure more of their current advertisers’ marketing budgets The key to maximizing value is to find the potential acquirer that will gain the most from owning your business Financial investors seek to manage their risk by investing in companies with Proven management teams Existing customers Clear problem solved or defined need Large and growing addressable market Scalable business models The key to maximizing value is to be in multiple discussions with investors that specialize/target investment opportunities in your sector 34 PEACHTREE MEDIA ADVISORS, INC.
