Mr. Limin Li, VisionChina Media's chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "Even with the seasonality and integration challenges we faced in the first quarter, the 2010 fiscal year was one of growth and expansion for VisionChina Media with record high quarterly revenues in the fourth quarter. During 2009 and the beginning of 2010, we continued to build our network, connecting above-ground buses with underground subway systems across China, giving our advertisers the benefit of a vast network, hugely populated with Chinese consumers. In the second half of 2010, we began to focus on deeper penetration of existing cities and the further monetization of our network. We have also begun working with our bus and subway partners to reduce media costs in certain cities. While we have come to expect seasonal weakness in the first quarter, I am confident that with these efforts, VisionChina Media will achieve strong revenue growth and deliver promising results in 2011."

Stanley Wang, VisionChina Media's vice president of finance, added, "The fourth quarter ended a strong year for VisionChina Media. Despite the write-down that we took in the fourth quarter in relation to our acquisition of Digital Media Group Company Limited, we have seen a number of very positive financial and operational trends emerged in 2010, and we are optimistic these will continue in the quarters and years ahead. We've seen strong revenue growth since the second quarter of 2010, a very positive trend that continued into the fourth quarter. Additionally, in comparing 2009 to 2010, both average advertising minutes per broadcasting hour and total advertising service revenue saw increases as our sales force demonstrated to advertisers the benefits of our network, including our enormous reach and greater advertising recall. As we move forward into 2011, we will place greater emphasis on utilization improvement and media cost reduction to further enhance our bottom line."

If this non-recurring, non-cash impairment charge were excluded, the Company would have an operating profit of $0.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.

The net loss in the fourth quarter of 2010 was, as mentioned previously, primarily attributable to the non-recurring, non-cash impairment charge of $56.6 million as the result of a write-down of goodwill and intangible assets in connection with the Company's acquisition of Digital Media Group. Basic and diluted net loss per share (GAAP) attributable to VisionChina Media shareholders in the fourth quarter of 2010 were both $0.53.

Gross profit in the full-year 2010 was $17.1 million, a decrease of 71.4% from gross profit of $59.6 million in the full-year 2009.

The Company recorded net interest expense of $2.9 million in the full-year 2010, compared to net interest income of $1.8 million in the full-year 2009. The net interest expense in the full-year 2010 was primarily due to the increase in both long-term and short-term bank loans.

The Company recognized an income tax benefit of $18.2 million in the full-year 2010, including a tax credit of $12.2 million in connection with the impairment loss, compared to an income tax expense of $2.3 million in the full-year 2009.

Recent Developments

Digital Media Group Legal Actions

On December 27, 2010, VisionChina Media announced that it, together with its wholly-owned subsidiary, Vision Best Limited ("Vision Best"), commenced an action against Shareholder Representative Services, LLC, Gobi Partners, INC., Gobi Fund, INC., Gobi Fund II, L.P., Oak Investment Partners XII, L.P., Sierra Ventures IX, LP, NIFSMBC-V2006S1 Investment Limited Partnership, NIFSMBC-V2006S3 Investment Limited Partnership, Thomas Gai Tei Tsao, and other as-yet unnamed defendants, arising from the Company's acquisition of Digital Media Group, by filing a summons with notice in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, New York County. The summons and notice allege that defendants Gobi Partners, Inc., Gobi Fund, Inc., Gobi Fund II, L.P. (collectively, "Gobi"), Oak Investment Partners XII, L.P. ("Oak"), Thomas Gai Tei Tsao and other as-yet unnamed participants engaged in an unlawful scheme to induce VisionChina Media and Vision Best, through false, deceptive and misleading statements concerning Digital Media Group's financial condition and performance, to pay a grossly inflated price to purchase Digital Media Group's shares. The summons and notice allege that each defendant named in the action has received, or is scheduled to receive, ill-gotten gains from this unlawful scheme. The summons and notice further allege that VisionChina Media and Vision Best are owed indemnification from an escrow fund, established at the time of the purchase, as a result of breaches of representations and warranties contained in the merger agreement.

Focus Media Holding Limited's Investment in VisionChina Media

On December 30, 2010, VisionChina Media and Focus Media Holding Limited ("Focus Media") announced that the two companies had entered into a securities purchase agreement, pursuant to which Focus Media would purchase 15,331,305 newly issued common shares of VisionChina Media at a price of $3.979 per share, equivalent to $3.979 per ADS, for a total consideration of approximately $61.0 million. JJ Media Investment Holding Limited, an entity owned by Jason Nanchun Jiang, the chairman and chief executive officer of Focus Media and one of Focus Media's largest shareholders, and Front Lead Investments Limited ("Front Lead"), an entity beneficially owned by Limin Li, the chief executive officer and largest shareholder of VisionChina Media, also announced their intention to each acquire 1,022,087 newly issued common shares of VisionChina Media at the price of $3.979 per share, equivalent to $3.979 per ADS, each for a consideration of approximately $4.0 million.

The transaction was subject to customary closing conditions and was completed in January 2011. Following the transaction, Front Lead, an entity beneficially owned by Limin Li, remained VisionChina Media's largest shareholder with 17.1% of VisionChina Media's outstanding issued shares.

Continuous cost control measures

Towards the end of 2010, the Company began actively renegotiating media costs with its local operating partners, including digital mobile television companies and subway operating companies in different cities and provinces. To date, the Company successfully agreed with the local operating partners in two cities for a reduced media cost in the year of 2011. Also, the Company has terminated the exclusive agency agreements for certain unprofitable media platforms in 2011. Most of those dropped media platforms did not make meaningful contribution to the Company's revenues, and the dropping of these unprofitable media platforms is expected to reduce media costs in 2011 and onwards. The Company will continue these control measures to optimize media resources and maintain the Company's profitability.

Business Outlook

The Company estimates total revenues, which consist of advertising service revenue only, in the first quarter of 2011 to be between $32.0 million and $34.0 million. First quarter 2011 net loss attributable to VisionChina Media shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses and amortization of intangible assets (non-GAAP) is estimated to be between $10.0 million and $12.5 million. The Company estimates that advertising service revenue during the first quarter will be negatively affected by seasonality. The Company expects that the seasonal impact will be short-term in nature and that the Company's advertising service revenue will increase in subsequent quarters.

These estimates are based on an exchange rate of RMB6.6118 per $1.00.

The Company noted that its guidance is based on its current network that, as of the date of this press release, has already been secured by contract. If the Company's network expands to additional cities, either organically or through acquisitions, management's forecast could be affected.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with another method for assessing VisionChina Media's operating results in a manner that is focused on the performance of its ongoing operations. Readers are cautioned not to view non-GAAP results on a stand-alone basis or as a substitute for results under GAAP, or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the performance of VisionChina Media's liquidity and when planning and forecasting future periods. The Company computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter.
