DAG Media, Inc. Acquires 80% of the Shares of Shopila Corporation

Monday, October 12

NEW YORK, -- DAG Media Inc., announced today that it had purchased 80% of the shares of Shopila Corporation ("Shopila") from Guy Mushkat for $100,000 in cash, 50,000 restricted shares of DAG Media's Common Stock and an option to purchase 50,000 shares of DAG Media's Common Stock under DAG Media's stock option plan to be vested in 3 equal consecutive annual installments. In addition, Mr. Guy Mushkat, the founder and CEO of Shopila, signed a 5 year employment agreement with the company.

Shopila is an e-commerce company that acts as a mediator between wholesale suppliers and online shoppers, buying products at low prices from wholesalers and selling them online to consumers. We believe that Shopila, which is located on the web at www.shopila.com, runs extremely lean operations in that it holds no physical inventory and partners only with drop-ship wholesale suppliers that ship directly to consumers. We believe that Shopila has developed advanced software technology, Virtual Octopus ™ (V-Octopus ™), which is designed to automatically gets product data information from many different suppliers, process that data on different company's own requirements and formulate and then publish the processed data on different marketplaces, thereby generating the best prices on the web. In addition, Shopila's fully- automated back-end system has been designed to streamline transactions from multiple suppliers and wholesalers.

Shopila was founded in December 2004 by Mr. Guy Mushkat. Financial information about Shopila will be announced in future public filings, however, Shopila is forecast to generate $300,000 to $400,000 in sales in 2006.

Guy Mushkat, CEO and founder (B.Sc.), is experienced in e-commerce, having held positions at Adar Import Inc. and Etronics Inc., both successful e-commerce companies. Mr. Mushkat has also worked at Eshed Engineering and Rosenet, leading complex projects in web and system design. Assaf Ran DAG Media's CEO stated: "After a lingering quest for an appropriate acquisition we have identified a great growth opportunity in Shopila". "In addition to the direct benefit from this transaction Shopila technology and marketing expertise will contribute to the success of Nextyellow.com, DAG Media's patent pending online yellow pages solution" added Mr. Ran.

Mr. Guy Mushkat Shopila's CEO stated: "I am excited to join the DAG Media team. This transaction will ramp Shopila on an expedited growth path to its unique business".
