Mr. Liu Xiaosong, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of A8 Digital Music, said, “We are very pleased to see A8 Digital Music has reached a very important milestone since its inception in year 2000. We have built a solid foundation and established a firm foothold in digital music in China. As a first mover in digital music, we have been collecting over 50,000 songs from our User Generated Content (“UGC”) platform at http://www.a8.com . More importantly, we are able to monetize our content (our own songs with copyrights) through handsets. We provide songs uploaded by original independent artists and supported by a revolutionary integrated marketing and sales model that boasts high operational efficiency and enhanced sales opportunities. It is our hope to ride on our unique business model to realize our mission of ‘My music everywhere!’ as I believe digital music is the future of music industry!”

Unlike the traditional music industry, the Group adopted a revolutionary and scalable songs collection model from its UGC platform -- http://www.a8.com . It is one of the largest collection platforms for original and independent artists in China. It is a self-service facility enjoying growing popularity among song writers and consumers craving new experiences and speedy and quality services. Currently, the platform holds a collection of over 50,000 music content and songs from more than 10,000 artists. The Group also actively promotes the development of original music content through activities such as song competitions and campaigns, for example, the annual Yuansheng Feiyang Top Ten Gold Songs to boost its collection. The platform is in strategic alliance with more than 1,000 other internet websites to promote its music.

A8 Digital Music owns a repertoire of more than 50,000 original works of music, one of the largest in China, including popular songs like “Buxiangrangniku” and “Wobuku” etc. There were approximately 7.8 million wireless downloads and approximately RMB16.1 million revenue recorded for the song “Buxiangrangniku”, while that for “Wobuku” was 5.9 million wireless downloads and about RMB11.1 million revenue for the year of 2007. The success of the original independently produced songs proves the Group’s influences in China’s music market and its ability to identify and promotes music content with potential for popularity. Likewise, the Group’s music catalogue also contains other music content types from local and foreign record companies.

The Group has strong sales and marketing efforts through a nation-wide network of 21 sales offices, covering more than 30 provinces and municipalities in China. It has close relationship with major telecom operators at national and regional levels. Local presence has also allowed the Group to fully grasp local music preferences and access resources of local operators.

The Group’s proprietary A8Box download software works like a “jukebox” that supports access and download of music directly via the mobile phone. It is compatible with most of the popular mobile platforms including MTK (a software platform created by MediaTek Inc.), Windows Mobile and SmartNX (a smartphone platform created by Chipnuts Technology Inc.) platforms and it also supports Microsoft Windows. The introduction of A8Box has facilitated the offer of personalized service by the Group, helping to boost direct sales as well as the A8 Digital Music brand. The recent soft launch of 3G mobile services in China represents enormous business opportunities for the Group as the new technology supports faster and direct sales to mobile phone subscribers via the 3G compatible A8Box.

Apart from using the most advanced technology to grow its business, the Group also employs proven traditional promotion means including music companies and the media. It advertises via the printed and broadcast media as well as through participating in music events, putting its name in the company of famous brands and artists for added exposure.

Over the years, A8 Digital Music has gained recognition in the industry. In 2007, A8 Digital Music has been awarded as the “Top 100 Private Companies of 2007” by Red Herring and “Gold Olive Award for the Best Mobile Music Operator” by Shoujiquan, laying a solid foundation for the Group to become the leading digital music provider.

The Group has been profitable since 2002, two years after it began business, and has grown substantially since then. In 2007, it made turnover of RMB286 million, 6.5% more than that in 2006, and its net profit increased by 38.7% to RMB55.3 million.

According to the data published by the Ministry of Information of the PRC, there were over 574 million mobile subscribers in China as at the end of March 2008 and according to In-Stat, which estimates revenue of the PRC mobile music market will increase from approximately RMB5,046.2 million in 2006 to approximately RMB7,773.0 million in 2011. In China Mobile’s 2007 Annual Report, the revenue from one single mobile music product -- RBT, has already reached RMB 11,794 million in 2007. Taking into account its strong track record and the exponential market growth, A8 Digital Music is very optimistic about the prospects of its business.

Mr. Liu concluded, “Looking forward, we will keep upgrading our UCG platform to make sure customers have the most satisfactory experience using it and, at the same time, strengthen all sales and marketing channels to facilitate capture of the immense opportunities in the thriving wireless music service market in China. A8 Digital Music is one of the earliest and largest E-labels for independently produced original music content in China.”
