Intertainment Announces Filing of Preliminary Short Form Prospectus and Unit Offering

TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwire - Aug. 17, 2011) -


Intertainment Media Inc. ("Intertainment" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:INT)(OTCQX:ITMTF)(FRANKFURT:I4T) is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary short form prospectus for distribution of the common shares ("Common Shares") and common share purchase warrants ("Warrants") issuable on the exercise of the 19,760,271 special warrants ("Special Warrants") issued at a price of $1.20 per Special Warrant on May 13, 2011 (the "SW Offering") and with respect to the distribution of up to $20,000,000 of units ("Units") of the Company (the "Unit Offering").

The Company currently has approximately $23,000,000 in cash and cash equivalents available for working capital and strategic purposes. Any additional funding will be used primarily for strategic acquisitions and marketing activities to increase revenue opportunities.

The Company has received a continued term sheet for the entire Unit Offering from a US strategic investor with extensive opportunities in the US and Asia for Ortsbo and Intertainment's other programs.

The previously announced acquisition of SaaS Technologies Inc. is not affected by the Unit Offering, as this acquisition has been negotiated, subject to all necessary approvals, as a combination of cash and Common Shares over a period of 2 years.

Should the Company elect to proceed with the distribution of additional Units, the pricing of the Units will be determined by the Company at an expected premium to the market prior to filing the final prospectus in connection with the Unit Offering. Each Unit will consist of one Common Share and one-half of one Warrant. Each whole Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price per Common Share to be determined at the time of pricing of the Units. The Warrants will have a term expiring on the date which is 24 months from the completion of the Unit Offering, subject to acceleration of the exercise period in certain circumstances.

A preliminary short form prospectus containing important information relating to the Unit Offering and SW Offering has been filed with the securities commissions or similar authorities in certain jurisdictions of Canada. Copies of the preliminary short form prospectus may be obtained from Mr. David Lucatch, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, at 30 West Beaver Creek Road, Unit 111, Richmond Hill, Ontario L4B 3K1, telephone (905) 763-3510, and is also available electronically at

Options to purchase common shares of the Company may be granted to Profinnotiv in the future.
