    TOMORROW FOCUS AG Decides on Capital Increase

    The executive board of TOMORROW FOCUS AG (ISIN DE0005495329) has today decided, with the consent of the supervisory board, to use the existing authorised capital and undertake a 12.5% capital increase of stock cum shareholder rights. With the issue of 5,890,265 new shares, the stock will be increased from the current figure of EUR 47,122,125 to EUR 53,012,390. The inflow of funds from the capital increase will serve to finance the complete takeover of EliteMedianet GmbH, Hamburg, operator of the premium dating portal ElitePartner.de, as well as further possible acquisitions. The new shares will be issued at the amount of EUR 2.81 per share and, from 1st January 2009, profit sharing.

    Within the framework of the non-public offer, an indirect rights issue will be extended to the shareholders for the 5,890,265 new shares. Through the publication of the rights issue, the company shareholders are invited to exercise their pre-emptive rights to avoid exclusion during the period of 18th September 2009 to 2nd October 2009, 12 o'clock CEST (inclusive, in both cases). The exchange ratio is 8:1, in other words every eight existing TOMORROW FOCUS shares give entitlement to the purchase of one new share at the issue amount of EUR 2.81 per share. An organised trading in subscription rights will not take place.

    The bank Sal. Oppenheim jr. & Cie. KGaA, Cologne, will operate as purchase location, and is also authorised to organise subscription and receipt of the new shares. The Burda Group has pledged to Sal. Oppenheim jr. & Cie. , within the framework of the capital increase, to fully exercise the subscription rights allocated to them.

    Any shares remaining non-subscribed after the end of the subscription period on grounds of the subscription rights will be offered for purchase exclusively to the shareholders. To this end, every entitled shareholder may submit a binding offer to purchase further shares from the capital increase for the issue amount of EUR 2.81 per share (additional purchase) in addition to his portfolio, subject to subscription rights of the exchange ratio.

    It is anticipated that further details of the capital increase will be given on the 17th September 2009 in the rights issue published in the electronic Federal Gazette and Financial Times Germany.
