Köln (ots Ad hoc-Service) -

Ad hoc-announcement edited and sent by DGAP. The sender is solely
responsible for the contents of this announcement.
Splendid Medien AG of Cologne will
not be consolidating Initial Entertainment Group, Inc. (IEG) of Santa
Monica. The conditions currently prevailing in the film market
advocate a US majority in IEG.
Splendid has held 49 per cent of the shares in the US film
producing corporation IEG since June 1999. Splendid will not be
exercising its option to acquire a further two per cent of the
shares. By making this decision, Splendid is taking into account the
changes in the market conditions. The shareholders are unanimously
convinced that success for IEG as a leading independent film producer
will be better ensured if IEG retains its presence on the market in
the future as a corporation in which the majority holding is in US
hands. Splendid will also profit from this situation on account of
its holding in IEG.
In 2000 IEG had sales to the sum of approx. US$60 million and this
figure will not be shown pro rata in the consolidated accounts of
Splendid. No significant changes will result in the operating
statements for the two companies Splendid and IEG as a consequence of
the non-consolidation. Instead of the target figure of DM95 million,
unconsolidated sales for Splendid in 2000 will amount to approx. DM50
million. The 49 per cent holding in IEG will still be included in the
operating statements of Splendid. However, due to increased
amortization/depreciation, the operating results of IEG in the 2000
financial year will fall below the expected figures for the year.
For 2001 Splendid expects sales of DM100 million. Sales at IEG in
2001 will amount to US$90 million on the basis of the status of
current film production. Again in 2001 Splendid will include its 49
per cent holding in IEG in its operating statement.
