Remark Media Announces Investment in Bombo Sports

Exhibits Continued Commitment to Sports Content Vertical

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Remark Media, Inc. (NASDAQ: MARK), a global digital media company, announced today that it has loaned $1 million to Bombo Sports & Entertainment, LLC, a sports documentary film company that since its founding has created over 75 original films including Manchester United: Beyond the Promised Land, Ultimate Jordan, and Still We Believe: The Boston Red Sox Movie.  Additionally, Remark Media and Bombo Sports are in the process of negotiating a proposed acquisition of Bombo Sports by Remark Media.

Shing Tao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Remark Media, said "We took our first step in launching our sports vertical in November 2013 by being the official digital distributor of the Clash in Cotai boxing event, headlined by Manny Pacquiao vs. Brandon Rios, in which we successfully reached more than five times the US domestic viewership for the event in our target markets of Greater China and South Korea.  In conjunction with the Clash in Cotai, co-promoted by Top Rank and Venetian Cotai, we launched China's first Boxing Channel distributed on PPTV's streaming video platform.  By investing in and pursuing an acquisition of Bombo Sports, which has been trusted to tell the stories of the most globally recognized sports brands and athletes over the past three decades, we are seeking to build on this momentum and exhibit our continued commitment to our sports content vertical globally."

Remark Media expects that its acquisition of Bombo Sports will be completed within the next 45 days.  However, Remark Media and Bombo Sports have not entered into any binding agreements with respect to such proposed acquisition and Remark Media cannot provide any assurances that it will be able to complete such transaction within the expected timeframe or at all.  Additionally, Remark and Bombo are jointly working on global monetization strategies for the existing library.
