Consorteum Holdings, Inc. Raises $300,000 to Assist in Deployment of Major Initiatives

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - November 8, 2010) -  Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CSRH) has entered into an agreement with a single investor for financing in the amount of $300,000. The Company issued the investor a secured convertible promissory note for $300,000 bearing interest at 12% per annum.

Interest only is payable quarterly in arrears, with all remaining interest and principal due and payable on November 2, 2011. At the option of the investor, all or part of the principal may be repaid by cancelling the amount sought in exchange for shares of the Company's common stock at a discount of thirty-five percent (35%) from the average of the bid and ask price of the common stock for the ten days preceding the date selected for conversion. In the event that the shares of the Company trade at a price above $0.10 for a period of twenty (20) consecutive trading days, the Company may require the lender to convert the principal amount of the loan into shares of common stock at a conversion price equal to 35% below the 20 day average bid and ask prices. The Company also issued the lender 7,500,000 restricted shares of the Company as part of the transaction.

Craig Fielding, CEO of Consorteum Holdings, Inc., stated, "I consider this to be an important first step to allow Consorteum to move forward with its current initiatives. We are currently expanding the First Nations pilot initiative and this first infusion allows for continued rollout across Canada. We are now well positioned for this initiative's continued deployment over the next 12 months and confident we will be on time with this and additional key initiatives planned for the coming months."
