Consorteum Holdings Inc. Reaches Funding Agreement With Private Equity Group

TORONTO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 -- Consorteum Holdings Inc., a Nevada corporation ("Consorteum" or the "Company") (OTCQB: CSRH), today announced that it has entered into a binding term sheet with AIC Group Holdings Limited for a $30,000,000 funding commitment. A private equity group, AIC Group Holdings Limited is a corporation organized under the laws of the British Virgin Islands.

Consorteum has entered into this agreement to provide working capital, fund the sales & marketing budget and to allow the Company to identify potential merger and acquisitions that will strengthen its ability to compete in the online and mobile gaming market place. Consorteum will focus on its new partnership with Knockout Gaming Inc., an Isle of Man Limited corporation, which has a full online casino gaming platform, and its existing licensing agreement with Tarsin Inc., a Nevada corporation.

As reported previously, Consorteum and Tarsin have reached a licensing agreement to partner in the continued release of mobile gaming solutions, releasing solutions on Tarsin's CAPSA platform, which is already in the global market and servicing millions of mobile consumers.

The Company has also reached a joint revenue share agreement with Knockout Gaming, Inc. ("Knockout"), a Nevada corporation. The partnership allows Consorteum to resell Knockout's licensed online gaming platform called FirePlay. Knockout has spent the past two years completing a rigorous testing program in order to achieve its gaming license from the Isle of Man. This license approval was only the 47th such license ever granted, and it is critical in differentiating the platform from other competitors.

Craig Fielding, Consorteum's CEO, stated, "Player protection is a crucial issue in the world of online gaming and the license allows us to market our brands as 'player protected' in which the payouts are strictly controlled. Our agreement with Knockout will allow Consorteum to provide customers with a single integrated solution to the complex problems of online gaming with mobile capabilities. In our initial discussions with casino operators, they have indicated that our approach is the total 'one-stop solution' that they are looking to deploy."

"Consorteum is continuing to identify opportunities in which we can utilize the proven CAPSA platform and validate the revenue potential that online and mobile gaming and wagering represents," continued Mr. Fielding. "We are in discussions with several international offshore properties and we hope to be able to reach definitive contracts with several new casinos in the near future. This ultimately is a win-win for both companies. With access to capital, Consorteum will be able to execute on its business plan and aggressively pursue opportunities that it has been developing throughout Canada and Internationally. We now have the resources to go to market and educate the online and mobile gaming customers about our total solution."
