Intertainment Media Inc. Equity Offering Over Subscribed

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 29, 2008) - Intertainment Media Inc. ("Intertainment" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:INT) announced today that it has received commitments in excess of its $900,000 CDN brokered private placement offering (the "Offering") that the Company announced on December 2, 2008. The Company expects to close a portion of the available $475,000 before the end of the year with the available balance committed by Proximity Networks Inc., subject to TSX Venture Exchange and shareholder approval. Proximity Networks Inc. has already acquired $500,000 of the equity offering.

The capital raised will be used for Itibiti System's voice powered social networking platform, for strategic growth opportunities and for general corporate purposes. The Company may choose to issue fewer units than the maximum proposed under the Offering.

On December 11, 2008 the Company announced that it's wholly owned subsidiary, Itibiti Systems Inc. is in discussions with a major industry leading global technology firm to integrate its platforms and online programming directly into Itibiti Systems' product suite.

The integration of the technology firm's offerings, should the discussions result in a formal agreement, will provide consumers with a wide array of functional, social networking and communication additions to Itibiti Systems' already rich suite of services.

In addition to the equity offering, on December 3, 2008 the Company announced today that subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, it will seek to complete a brokered private placement of convertible debentures of up to $3 Million CDN as a first round financing into its subsidiary, Itibiti Systems Inc. The Company has already received commitments and continues to garner strong interest from investors and debt holders.

The financing will be part of the Company's strategic objectives to grow Itibiti Systems Inc. as a majority owned, but independent division of the Company, allowing it to potentially keep pace with other online industry valuations. The valuation for companies in the online social networking space has significantly outpaced the value of Intertainment's total aggregate public value, and the Company and management are seeking to provide the utmost long-term value to its stakeholders.

"Itibiti Systems is now moving to the final stage before launch and is in discussions to add some significant 3rd party technology to its platform. Itibiti has been well received by major global brands, international advertising agencies and consumer groups. By running Itibiti Systems as a separate entity, we believe that we are able to provide our shareholders and other stakeholders with a potentially larger value proposition in the long run," said Mr. David Lucatch, CEO of Intertainment Media Inc.

The Offering will consist of convertible debentures ("Debentures") at a subscription price of $50,000 CDN per Debenture which, unless otherwise authorized, will be payable at 15% interest per year, paid semi-annually. Each Debenture will be convertible into the Debenture holder's choice of (a) units of the Company ("Units") at a conversion price of $0.07 per Unit with each Unit consisting of one common share and one common share purchase warrant ("Warrant"), such Warrant having an exercise price of $0.12 and is valid for two (2) years from the date of conversion of the debenture into Units of Intertainment Media Inc., or (b) equity of Itibiti Systems Inc. in the form of common shares (the "Equity") for a period of two (2) years from the date of closing of the offering of Debentures, with the conversion price for the Equity based on a fixed pre-Offering valuation of Itibiti Systems Inc. being set at $10,000,000. The percentage of convertible ownership into Itibiti Systems Inc. under option (b) above is non-dilutive throughout the term of the debenture.

The Offering will be led by Toronto based D&D Securities Company. The Company will pay eligible parties 8% commission in cash and provide an option to purchase up to 8% of the Debentures sold at the subscription price of the Offering for a period of 18 months from the date of completion of the Offering.

The capital raised will be used to further the completion of Itibiti System's voice powered social networking platform, for strategic growth opportunities and for general corporate purposes. The Company may choose to issue fewer units than the maximum.

As part of the Company's stock option plan and subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, the Board has granted 3,825,000 options valid for 2 years at a price of $0.10 per common share. Management and Insiders were issued 2,535,00 as part of the grant.
