MONDO TV: With reference to the litigation with Clan Celentano S.r.l., it is reported that the Milan Court has rejected Mondo TV’s claim as set forth in the press release dated 24 April 2012

Only partially met the demand of Clan Celentano, to which Mondo TV will have to pay Euros 750,000 against a claim of approximately Euros 14 million
 
The judgment will not affect the 2017 forecasts which will include a value of production of Euro 37.6 million, EBITDA of Euro 25.9 million, EBIT of Euro 17.9 million and net profit of Euro 11.6 million with an increase of 36% compared to 2016
 
Matteo Corradi said: "We feel that the judgment is deeply unfair and does not seem to have taken into account the great effort made by Mondo TV in the production with Clan for whose failure we do not feel responsible but badly affected: we will evaluate the reasons for the ruling as we do not share the outcome of the judgment which we want to believe has not been influenced by the reputation of the counterpart. Unfortunately, Italy as a country system seems to bring to Mondo TV only disappointments and reasons of bitterness: we are therefore delighted to be an increasingly global business group with more than 90% of foreign source revenues.”
 
18 May 2017: Following the press release dated April 24, 2012, Mondo TV S.p.A. announces that the Milan Court, in its collegial composition, closed the first instance of the proceedings against the Clan Celentano S.r.l. with a ruling that rejected the claim for damages made by Mondo TV against the counterpart and which had been reported in the aforementioned press release.
 
The rejection of Mondo TV's application is accompanied by the only partial acceptance of Clan Celentano's claims against Mondo TV: in particular against a quantifiable demand of approximately 14 million Euros, Mondo TV was sentenced to pay Clan Celentano the sum of Euro 750,000 plus interest and monetary revaluation (plus accessories such as legal fees). The judges also ordered the publication of the ruling on Corriere della Sera by Clan Celentano and at the expense of Mondo TV.
 
It should be noted that, thanks to the good standing of the business, the ruling does not affect Mondo TV’s 2017 forecasts, which – it is recalled (see press release of 27 October 2016) - foresee a value of production of Euro 37.6 million, EBITDA of Euro 25.9 million, EBIT To Euro 17.9 million and net profit to Euro 11.6 million, with growth for the latter by 36% compared to 2016.
 
Matteo Corradi said: "We feel that the judgment is deeply unfair and does not seem to have taken into account the great effort made by Mondo TV in the production with Clan for whose failure we do not feel responsible but badly affected: we will evaluate the reasons for the ruling as we do not share the outcome of the judgment which we want to believe has not been influenced by the reputation of the counterpart. Unfortunately, Italy as a country system seems to bring to Mondo TV only disappointments and reasons of bitterness: we are therefore delighted to be an increasingly global business group with more than 90% of foreign source revenues.”
