Intertainment Media Receives Financing Commitment

TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwire - Dec. 21, 2010) - Intertainment Media Inc. (TSX VENTURE:INT) ("Intertainment" or the "Company"), announced today that it has received commitments to engage in a non brokered private placement. The private placement will consist of Units, which will be priced at $0.10 CDN and include one common share of Intertainment and one common share purchase warrant at $0.13 CDN with a 2 year expiry from date of closing. The total committed to date is approximately $1.1 Million CDN and the Company is finalizing additional interest and subscription agreements. The monies will be used to accelerate Ortsbo, itiBiti and Ad Taffy as well as for corporate purposes. The financing has received Board approval and is subject to final regulatory approval. Based on the current commitments, the financing is expected to close shortly.

The Company's core social and new media programs continue to accelerate with Ortsbo reaching over 23 million minutes of User Engagement, increasing 60 fold since its launch in late July 2010. itiBiti has recently reported that its program has reached over 10 million minutes of engagement and Ad Taffy has begun commercial program rollout. The Company's traditional media unit, Magnum also continues to accelerate its business programs, significantly increasing its online programs for major clients. The results of each division have directly resulted in new revenue opportunities for the Company.

"Continued investment in core programs is warranted at this time to accelerate user engagement, revenue opportunities and overall enterprise value. The social media and online advertising environment is competitive and Intertainment has proprietary, unique offerings with Ortsbo, itiBiti and Ad Taffy and consumers are engaging in record numbers as indicated by our recent performance metrics. Now is not the time to lessen these efforts, but to increase them to capitalize on long-term value opportunities for all our stakeholders," said David Lucatch, CEO of Intertainment Media Inc.

The Company's efforts to assess future strategic opportunities for Ortsbo continue with the Corum Group ( (Seattle and Zurich), a global leader in software mergers and acquisitions.

The Company has considered independent offers and feels that working with Corum provides potentially higher value for Ortsbo. The Company will provide further updates as they become available.
