Parallel Media Group PLC - Half-yearly Report

PARALLEL MEDIA GROUP PLC ('PMG' OR THE 'GROUP') INTERIM RESULTS FOR THE 6 MONTHS ENDED 30 JUNE 2007 CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT Overview The first half of 2007 has been one of the most exciting in the Group's history. After the upheavals of the corporate restructuring in late 2006, we took ownership of the UBS Hong Kong Open and the TCL Classic. This period has seen Parallel Media Group PLC (PMG) secure two large contracts that should considerably enhance the financial performance of the Group in 2008 and beyond. PMG has been appointed to be the exclusive commercial partner of Mission Hills in China (the world's largest golf complex), for a period of 12 years. This partnership includes the World Cup of Golf format, the title sponsorship of which PMG has sold to Omega. In the same period, PMG created a new golf tournament in Korea with Pernod Ricard as title sponsor (The Ballantine's Championship). This event is co-sanctioned by the European Tour and Korean PGA and will have the largest prize-purse in Korean golf, one of the world's fastest growing golf markets. More recently, PMG has renewed a three year agreement with the National Federation of Golf in the Republic of Kazakhstan ('NFGK') to continue to promote the Kazakhstan Open with the aim of making this a full European Tour event by 2010. Financial Review The Group's results for the half-year ended 30 June 2007 are the first results to be reported under IFRS and accounting policies applied are consistent with those that will apply in the next (full IFRS) annual accounts. The PMG business in the six month period to 30 June 2007 is significantly changed from the same period in 2006 by the acquisition of the two major golfing events referred to above. The profile of revenue and costs as a result, is not directly comparable between periods. The turnover for the 6 month period to 30 June 2007 was #1,873,000 (2006: #1,477,000) and comprised event revenues for the TCL Classic in China and consulting and sales revenues for the period. Building the Group's increased inventory has led to an increase in costs for the period. In the period under review the operating loss was #170,000 compared to a profit of #126,000 in the same period last year. The loss for the period after finance costs was #323,000 compared to a profit in 2006 of #9,000. As in previous years, Turnover in 2007 is significantly weighted to the second half of the year. In the last 12 months we have taken significant steps to transform the balance sheet position, moving from negative net assets of #5.06m in June 2006 to negative #1.19m in June 2007. We are reviewing plans to simplify the capital structure over the next 12 months. Board I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Board members who have contributed immensely to the turnaround we are experiencing. I would also like to thank the major stakeholders in the business who are tremendously supportive and increasingly active in helping us shape and deliver business growth. Future Prospects In 2007 we are building sponsorship and sales assets and are now looking much stronger in 2008 and beyond with high quality earnings visible for some years ahead. The combination of new business wins and an exciting pipeline of opportunities will enable the group to grow rapidly.

Accounting Policies Basis of preparation: The Groups financial statements were prepared in accordance with UK GAAP until 31 December 2006. From 1st January 2007 the group will prepare its consolidated financial statements in accordance with IFRS as adopted for use in the EU. The next annual financial statements of Parallel Media Group plc (PMG) will be prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted for use in the EU applied in accordance with provisions of the Companies Act 1985. IFRS transition: The Groups results for the half year ended 30 June 2007 are the first results to be reported under IFRS. The Groups date of transition to IFRS is 1 January 2006 and the adoption date is 1 January 2007. Basis of consolidation: The consolidated financial statements incorporate the results of the Company and all of its subsidiary undertakings as at 30 June 2007 using the acquisition method of accounting. Under the acquisition method the results of subsidiary undertakings are included from the date of acquisition. On disposal, the results are included up to the date of disposal. Goodwill and Intangible Assets The rights to promote European Tour golf events were identified as Goodwill in the audited financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2006. This goodwill has been reclassified as Intangible Assets as required through the adoption of IAS 38. The effect of this change is that the Intangibles will be amortised over their expected life of 20 years. If the events had continued to be classified as Goodwill, they would have been subject to an annual impairment review, with no obligation to amortise them over their expected useful life. Intangible Assets are held at fair value. Investments There has been no change to the value of investments as a result of moving to IFRS. Any change in fair values will be shown in the Income Statement in the calculation of profit or loss. Non-Statutory accounts: The half-year figures for the period ended 30 June 2007 and the full year figures for the year ended 31 December 2006 do not constitute statutory accounts for the purposes of section 240 of the Companies Act 1985. A copy of the statutory accounts for that year under UK GAAP has been filed with the Registrar of Companies. The report of the auditors on those accounts was unqualified and did not contain a statement under either Section 237 (2) or Section 237 (3) of the Companies Act 1985. Reconciliations and descriptions of the effect of the transition from UK GAAP to IFRS on the Group's Equity and its net income are provided in Note 6. 2. Share Capital Shares in issue (No.) Share Capital # Ordinary shares of 0.5p in issue at 1 January 2007 296,429,269 1,482,146 Ordinary shares of 0.5p issued during the period 75,641,024 378,205 Ordinary shares of 0.5p in issue at 30 June 2007 372,070,293 1,860,351 Deferred ordinary shares of 0.5p in issue at 1 January 2007 199,831,545 999,158 Total shares in issue at 30 June 2007 571,901,838 2,859,509 As at 30 June 2007 there were 372,070,293 Ordinary shares of 0.5p in issue. Convertible loan note holders have options to convert 223,462,583 shares of 0.5p in 2008, which may be expected to convert and/or be redeemed. The deferred shares in issue do not entitle their holders to receive any dividend, other distribution or infer any rights other than repayment. They are therefore excluded for the purpose of EPS calculation. 3.

No profit or loss or net asset segmentation analysis is therefore provided on this basis. 6. Transition to IFRS The date of transition from UK GAAP to IFRS is 1 January 2006. Parallel Media Group PLC reported under UK GAAP in its previously published financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2006. Analysis of the financial statements as at 1 January 2006, and subsequent periods shows that no adjustments are required to equity or profit as a result of the transition to IFRS for the statements at the date of transition, the six months ended 30 June 2006 or the full year ended 31 December 2006. There are however significant presentational changes to the results for each of the periods and these adjustments have been made. 7.
