Press release from: DEAG Deutsche Entertainment AG

• Group result increase to EUR 2.0 million after EUR 0.9 million during the prior year period
• EBIT rises to EUR 5.7 million (EUR 3.6 million)
• EBITDA grows to EUR 6.5 million (EUR 4.4 million)
• Sales revenues increase to EUR 93.9 million (EUR 83.3 million)

Berlin, November, 25, 2011 - DEAG Deutsche Entertainment AG (ISIN DE000A0Z23G6) has continued its growth course with a significant, disproportionate rise in Group results during the first nine months of fiscal 2011.

Consolidated sales revenues grew, based on preliminary numbers, during the first three quarters by 13% from EUR 83.3 million to EUR 93.9 million. EBITDA went up by 46% from EUR 4.4 million to EUR 6.5 million. EBIT improved by 61% from EUR 3.6 million to EUR 5.7 million. During the third quarter sales revenues were on the level of the previous year in the amount of EUR 29.2 million, whilst the
consolidated net income turned from EUR -0.3 million to EUR 0.2 million. On a quarterly basis this corresponds to earnings per share of EUR 0.02. Due to the result mix there has been a significant drop in the share of the tax rate and the minority interest in the result, with a slightly improved financial result for the nine month period. The consolidated result climbed in a disproportionate manner from EUR 0.9 million by 128% to around EUR 2.0 million. For the first three quarters this amounts to earnings per share of EUR 0.16, after EUR 0.07 during the prior year period.

The successful business development during the first nine months of fiscal 2011 is based on an attractive offering of concerts and tours in conjunction with the consistent implementation of the 360° approach. DEAG has further consolidated its positioning as an integrated Entertainment Content Company. The Executive Board anticipates once more a good year-end business. The strong fourth quarter will in particular be supported by the British company, Raymond Gubbay Ltd, which is now wholly owned by the DEAG Group, with numerous Christmas and popular classical music productions. Other segments, too, will contribute very good results.

For 2012 the pipeline is very well filled and the sales already made for the coming year allow for a
positive outlook. More than 150,000 tickets for the Peter Maffay show “Tabaluga – Signs of the Times”, which will start in Fall 2012, have already been sold. In the same way tours with David Garrett, Anna Netrebko and Erwin Schrott and in-house productions such as the Seefestspiele Berlin festival with “Carmen”, directed by Volker Schlöndorff in Berlin and the opera production “Aida” in the Royal Albert Hall in London, will be amongst the highlights of the 2012 program.

The interim report including the final numbers for the first nine months 2011 will be available as of November 30, 2011 in the Investor Relations section at
