UCP Shareholder's Newsletter: 2Q 2016

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 9, 2016) - United Communications Partners (OTC PINK: UCPA)

We welcome back our shareholders to the 2nd Quarter issue of the UCP Newsletter. In it you will find current information as reported by the management of the various companies that fall under our holding company umbrella. 

As reported in the April 18, 2016 press release, Horizon Media announced the evolution of Columbus Media, the largest privately owned international media agency network in the world, to a more formalized agency network model named Local Planet. Local Planet is the world's only privately owned international media network. Wholly owned by its agency partners, Local Planet operates in over 40 markets globally, has more than 3,000 staff, and boasts billings in excess of $10 billion. The network's mission is to provide its international clients with a level playing field in accessing strategy, value, transparency, technology and talent. TreKronorMedia looks forward to a solid working relationship with this network.

Thank you for your solid support. 2016 continues to be a busy year for all our companies.

Tre Kronor Media Stockholm 
Q1 has been a very good quarter, media volume with our clients was +45% vs Q1 2015. The new Head of Insight, Lina Bergman, has started and already improved our offering and product portfolio when it comes to Business Intelligence. We have had very interesting leads when it comes to new business and hopefully we can present 1-2 new clients in an upcoming newsletter.

We had our 2016 Team Kick off in Stockholm where we rolled out our new organization structure, processes and business strategy goals for the years to come. We have also conducted our first Nordic cooperation meeting in Oslo. Next Nordic meeting will take place in Stockholm on June 2nd. Search, programmatic and radio are showing a positive trend. Print is still trading down.
