DAG Media, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

Tuesday, November 07

NEW YORK, -- DAG Media Inc -- On October 11, 2006, we entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement with Mr. Guy Mushkat, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Shopila Corporation, an e-commerce software developer and the operator of www.shopila.com. Pursuant to the terms of the Stock Agreement, we purchased 80% of the outstanding common shares of Shopila from Mr. Guy Mushkat, in consideration for $100,000 in cash, the issuance of 50,000 restricted shares of our common stock, and an option to purchase 50,000 shares of our Common Stock. In addition, we have replaced Mr. Guy Mushkat's personal guarantee of Shopila's liabilities up to, but not to exceed $90,000. Accordingly the purchase price is approximately $353,000 including liabilities assumed.

Total net loss for the three month period ended September 30, 2006 was $117,000, or $(0.04) per basic and diluted share (based on 3.180 million shares) compared to a net loss of $96,000, or $(0.03) per basic and diluted share (based on 3.120 million shares) for the same period in 2005. Total net loss for the nine month period ended September 30, 2006 was $42,000, or $(0.01) per basic and diluted share (based on 3.156 million shares) compared to a net loss of $299,000, or $(0.10) per basic and diluted share (based on 3.115 million shares) for the same period in 2005.

Loss from operations for the three month period ended September 30, 2006 was $251,000 compared to a loss of $163,000 for the same period in 2005, an increase of $88,000, or 54.0%. This increase is attributable primarily to an increase in Marketing expenses of $41,000 associated with the beginning operation of www.nextyellow.com and an increase in compensation expenses of $37,000 due to the adoption of SFAS 123R effective January 1, 2006.

Net loss from continuing operations for the three month period ended September 30, 2006 was $190,000, or $(0.06) per basic and diluted share (based on 3.180 million shares), compared to a net loss of $58,000, or $(0.02) per basic and diluted share (based on 3.120 million shares), for the same period in 2005. The net loss was attributable to the increase in loss from operations and decrease in other income which was attributable primarily to the fluctuation in performance of the Company's portfolio and marketable securities.

This increase is attributable primarily to the increase of web development costs of $125,000 associated with the programming of www.nextyellow.com website, increase in marketing expenses of $57,000 associated with marketing expenses of www.nextyellow.com and an increase in compensation expenses of $118,000 relating to the adoption of SFAS 123R effective January 1, 2006, offset by a decrease in professional fees of $57,000.
