RTG Ventures Files Its 10-K and Heads to Bright 2011

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) - RTG Ventures, Inc. (OTCBB: RTGV) has filed its annual 10-K for the fiscal year ending August 31, 2010 and embarked upon its first year as an operating company. The 10-K is the Annual Report of financial activities required at the end of the fiscal year and it follows filing consolidated financials on September 8, 2010. Because the consolidated financials occurred following the close of the fiscal year the 10-K filing could not be integrated under accounting rules. Therefore, the financials audited are those of the development company, in the throes of establishing its infrastructure, the acquiring businesses and fast-tracking the launch of two disruptive technologies, while positioning the company for an accelerated move into the commercial media monetization space. After an event-filled, but very complicated 12-months, RTG Ventures looks at the 10-K as the history which preceded the commercial, operational launch of the total businesses.

Following accounting practice, the acquired companies full financials have been included as footnotes to the 10-K. The first report of integrated accounts will be the 10-Q ending November 30, 2010. To reiterate, the Company had revenues of $2M during the period to August 31, 2010, expects $8M Y1 and $50+M by Y3. Current revenues are coming from the Software & Services Division, specifically BMC and Digital Clarity. It is unusual for a company only in operating mode for a few months to have such revenues and RTG Ventures is now positioned to launch its disruptive technology, which has been in development during the reporting period, as early as next month at presentations in Los Angeles and New York. The technologies have the potential for exponential growth. The real story for the future is how the company uses the expertise, human capital and synergies of the existing companies, as well as relationships which are in place in the industry to exploit the payment and media systems platforms.

Dominic Hawes-Fairley, CEO and President, said: "The beauty of RTG Ventures is the vertical integration of the media monetization and other complementary businesses, all of which have separate revenue streams to balance and neutralize the risk for investors. Each of these businesses are open to joint ventures, spin offs to separate public companies or sale to a larger player, all of which maximizes potential return on investment. RTG Ventures is now in a position to leverage existing relationships to expedite results.

"Couple our plan with a rapidly expanding base of investors as described in the press release we issued on Monday, December 13, and RTG Ventures is the play for 2011. We've assembled an aggressive and experienced management team, which is meeting in London next Monday, December 20, to review the last quarter's performance and plan the roll out of our disruptive technologies."

RTG Media Systems completed its second live music production this week and has further developed its model for exploiting its media library by creating an investment strategy that should deliver a very strong return on investment for shareholders.

Hawes-Fairley concluded: "We've developed a strategy that mitigates risk by applying very strict criteria to dictate which shows we film and the budget for each production. In this way, we are building a library of live material that we can monetize well into the future and when it's an RTG production we're monetizing, our vertically integrated business model ensures that we earn very high margins."
