Marketing & Sales of New media products via non electronic means ( e.g. Internet Tv boxes/IP based boxes/Content sales/promotion via flash cards / digital signage links via IP etc) 8. Media Consulting and conducting localised media based events for clients from across the MENA region as well as the Indian subcontinent. THE SCENARIO & THE OPPORTUNITY The digital experience gaps faced by today‟s consumers mean unrealized revenue for content providers (especially from the worlds most prolific film and Television Industry –BOLLYWOOD), technology manufacturers, service providers, and last-mile distributors, as well as frustration, confusion, and unrealized digital potential for consumers. The subcontinent, itself a huge consumer for digital content has left the other nearby regions of the world relatively unattended and wanting for South Asian content primarily because the content aggregation mechanism is not fluent and experienced enough to cater to this developing demand ( as is the industry in western countries like the US studios). The Middle East & Africa are ripe and potent regions which, due to their geographic proximity and age old trade routes have an intrinsic bond and affinity for Indian content either in its mother tongue or dubbed/subtitled into the local language. Mediastream FZE‟s management team has conducted both primary and secondary research into the new digital multimedia market both regionally and internationally. We have identified a significantly underserved segment within it – That of large-scale, multiple-source & tailor-made content aggregation, new media distribution and ongoing management opportunities as well as local Tv show production. Mediastream FZE‟s digital content rights aggregation, distribution and management services are uniquely positioned to fill this gap in the market because of our centralized, streamlined, and simplified approach. We promise a “solution boutique” of integrated content supply/delivery and related management services that will enable last-mile distributors to deliver full digital experiences to their subscribers. Industry research estimates that world wide successful efforts by way of this content-service bundled strategy will generate US$13 billion by 2010.

CONTACT:info@mediastreamme.com cell : +971503532828/4818965 www.mediastreamme.com Mission Statement Mediastream FZE aims to be the leading regional integration/ consulting/production & Content Clearing House for licensed, Indian, Western & International TV, radio, film, music, sports, and games content across multiple new digital media platforms worldwide, creating value for content providers and last-mile distributors. Company Description In December „08, Ron Kapadia a Satellite & Cable industry veteran of over two decades founded Mediastream FZE (the “Company”), a TV production/broadcast consultancy/multimedia integration and digital rights management company that aggregates and manages content license rights and secures its distribution via conventional as well as new digital mediums. The company started operations in the fall of ‟09 right in the middle of the recession looking at incubating a business entity with minimum cost. Envisaging the quantum change in the way video content is being viewed by users across the world by the effective utilization of emerging technologies with innovative marketing applications we realized the considerable scope for a business model catering to this demand. The Company is headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, with strategic alignments with content and service providers worldwide ranging from the USA to Singapore [for more information on the promoter please see ANNEXURE1] Some of our business partners are listed below: 1.

CONTACT:info@mediastreamme.com cell : +971503532828/4818965 www.mediastreamme.com Mediastream FZE is currently in the growth phase of its development, with a core team having expertise in different yet synergistic areas of the media industry. The Core team is assisted on a case to case basis by industry professionals synergistic to Mediastream The company has developed strong business relationships/representation with key Tv and film production studios and content providers across the Indian subcontinent for conventional and new media content and media services [see list above]. Within the next 12 months of operations, with a positive growth, the Company expects to reach a staff strength of 10-15 skilled & multi-tasking manpower specialized in various facets of the Television arena, which will enable the Company to be well-positioned for further growth and profitability. One of the key aspects of profitability is the utilization of experienced and multifaceted staff members thereby keeping the head count to a minimum. However one must understand keeping in mind the positive potential of the business, rapid expansion of the business would require local, regional & international staff/consultants to be recruited. Business Strategy Mediastream FZE‟s strategy is to offer scalable, tailor-made solutions for the aggregation, distribution, management, consultancy and associated value-added services („VAS‟) revenue generation needs of content providers and last-mile distributors as well as quality production services to local & international clients. By creating a centralized content clearing house for distribution, the Company is streamlining and simplifying an otherwise often tedious, complicated, and disorganized process. Both content providers and last-mile distributors have recognized that Mediastream FZE‟s horizontally-integrated approach provides the missing link in the value chain.

  • 8. RAK MEDIA FREE ZONE,AL JAZEERA AL HAMRA, EMIRATE OF RAS AL KHAIMAH,P.O.BOX 283220 DUBAI,UAE. CONTACT:info@mediastreamme.com cell : +971503532828/4818965 www.mediastreamme.com Target Market Last-mile distributors often market technology and applications, but fail to offer subscribers the content and services that bring them to life. Content providers lack the internal resources to effectively monetize niche distribution of their content via digital multimedia mediums. And middleware vendors (e.g., network infrastructure providers, portable device Manufacturers, software application developers, content management platform operators, etc.) Attempt to sell stand-alone software, technology, or devices versus integrated services under the control of a single application, all of which results in lost revenue opportunities. Mediastream FZE’s management recognizes an enormous set of unmet content- related needs in this global digital multimedia ecosystem, particularly the following platforms, which worldwide market research says will dominate pay TV over the next decade: . Triple Play (i.e., voice, data, video) . IPTV (Internet Protocol) . PC Broadband/Open-Access Internet . Video On Demand (VOD) . Mobile Telephony . Airlines (content sales and/or live streaming from satellite or IP-based distribution on commercial airlines, private & corporate jets) Industry Market Potential and estimations: Management estimates the market represented by Mediastream FZE‟s target digital multimedia platforms is currently at US$11 billion, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 55% to nearly US$100 billion by 2012. The following industry research supports management‟s forecasts:  IPTV: IMS Research forecasts that the worldwide IPTV market will climb from 1.9 million subscribers in 2004 to a little more than 27 million households by the end of the decade, while worldwide IPTV service revenue is projected to grow from US$635 million to more than US$44 billion respectively, according to Infonetics Research.

CONTACT:info@mediastreamme.com cell : +971503532828/4818965 www.mediastreamme.com  PC Broadband: According to ABI Research, the worldwide broadband video market will continue to grow rapidly, from US$6.9 billion worldwide in early 2005 to more than US$16 billion by 2010. Both pay and ad-supported broadband video markets saw growth in excess of 100% year over year in 2005, driven by consumers' continuing increase in broadband video usage and by content owners' demand for alternative outlets as existing channels mature.  VOD: Research from Informa Telecoms & Media shows that in 2010, 350 million homes will take VOD or NVOD services, equivalent to one-third of the world's total TV households, generating revenues of US$10.7 billion, up from US$2.8 billion in revenue by the end of 2006, and of which, non-adult video content delivered as subscription or pay-per-download over the Internet will have a worldwide retail value of US$2.6 billion.  Mobile Telephony: From fewer than 1 million global subscribers today, according to ABI Research forecasts, demand will experience strong growth so that by 2011 as many as 250 million customers will subscribe to video services on their mobile phones. What is now a US$200 million business will by the end of the decade be a US$27 billion one.  Airlines: Industry forecasts call for sales of nearly 9,000 new aircraft over the next 10 years and sales of more than 15,000 commercial transports valued at US$1.3 trillion over the next 20. These trends are based on annual airline passenger increases of almost 5% per annum. Average airline spend on telecommunications and IT (by Asia-Pacific airlines) remains pegged at 2% of revenues for the second year running. Competition Mediastream FZE‟s current competition is primarily with existing studio, broadcast television channels who are building their own in-house teams, in-house content acquisition departments of last-mile distributors and content providers‟ distribution teams. All of these do not have a wide variety of offerings since they have inducted manpower primarily to syndicate their own in-house content To a lesser extent, some content management platforms operators are also attempting to aggregate content as a means of selling their software, technology, or platform and managed services. However, for each of these potential competitors, content aggregation or its distribution – particularly for new digital multimedia platforms – is

CONTACT:info@mediastreamme.com cell : +971503532828/4818965 www.mediastreamme.com a non-core business, with insufficient resources allocated and the organizational structure inappropriately geared to servicing the activity. Conversely, these activities are Mediastream FZE‟s primary focus, which enables us to provide a level of experience, efficiency and value that our competitors cannot. Moreover, whereas our competitors are duplicating tasks, doubling up on content costs, and limiting its distribution (and associated revenue potential) to, in general, a single platform, territory, or last-mile operator, Mediastream FZE‟s scalable, horizontally-integrated business model leverages economies of scale both in terms of cost-effective content acquisition as well as its maximized distribution technologically and geographically. Management The founder of Mediastream FZE is a media executives with an execeptionally successful background in the Satellite & Television Media industry over the last 27years.  Ron Kapadia a media Industry veteran with over two decades of TV & media based management experience having held senior corporate & management assignments with the likes of o Sony Entertainment Television, India o CNBC-TV18, India: A multi facted broadcast and program producer presently running a bouquet of business related and entertainment channels out of the Indian subcontinent [CNBCTV18/CNBC AWAZ/CNN IBN/COLOURS ETC] o Hinduja-INCABLENET [India‟s largest MSO, with a sub base of over 250,000 HH‟s as in the year 2000] , o Modi Entertainment Network in India [ a Pay Tv distribution company] o Arab Digital Distribution (PEHLA) [The only satellite delivered Asian platform for the MENA region & part of the hugh ART group] , o ZEE Network Middle East [The world largest producer and content holder of South Asian content] & o City7Tv (Arab venture corporation) in the Middle East o And now Mediastream FZE the business of the future.
