Deal Group Media PLC 21 November 2005 Press Release 21 November 2005 Deal Group Media plc Trading Update Following a thorough review of the Group's operations, the Board expects that the profit before tax (excluding amortisation) for the year ending 31 December 2005 is likely to be £800,000. Two issues will have a material impact on the Results to 31 December 2005 following the trading update of 23 September 2005. Delays to the full implementation of DGM Pro, the Group's new proprietary tracking technology, will result in the Group incurring one-off additional programming and technology costs of £275,000. As a result of this there will be an additional reduction in profit across the business amounting to £100,000. The second issue relates specifically to two current customers which are temporarily unable to implement technology changes on their websites to allow planned campaigns to run before the New Year. This will result in a loss to the business of £225,000. The Group expects that efficiency gains related to DGM Pro will be seen in the second half of 2006. The Group remains operationally profitable, cash generative, and positioned in a high growth sector.
