Historical Operations of Mandalay Digital Group, Inc.

Mandalay Digital was originally incorporated in the State of Delaware on November 6, 1998 under the name eB2B Commerce, Inc. On April 27, 2000, the company merged into DynamicWeb Enterprises, Inc., a New Jersey corporation.

DynamicWeb Enterprises, Inc was the resulting entity, but it changed its name to eB2B Commerce, Inc. On April 13, 2005, the Company changed its name to Mediavest, Inc. On November 7, 2007, through a merger, the Company reincorporated in the State of Delaware under the name Mandalay Media, Inc. On May 12, 2010, the Company changed its name to NeuMedia, Inc.

On February 6, 2012, the Company merged with a wholly-owned, newly-formed subsidiary, changing its name to Mandalay Digital Group, Inc.

On October 27, 2004, and as amended on December 17, 2004, the Company filed a plan for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the "Plan of Reorganization"). Under the Plan of Reorganization, as completed on January 26, 2005: (1) the Company's net operating assets and liabilities were transferred to the holders of the secured notes in satisfaction of the principal and accrued interest thereon; (2) $400,000 was transferred to a liquidation trust and used to pay administrative costs and certain preferred creditors; (3) $100,000 was retained by the Company to fund the expenses of remaining public; (4) 3.5% of the new common stock of the Company (140,000 shares) was issued to the holders of record of Mandalay Digital's preferred stock in settlement of their liquidation preferences; (5) 3.5% of the new common stock of the Company (140,000 shares) was issued to common stockholders of record as of January 26, 2005 in exchange for all of the outstanding shares of the common stock of the company; and (6) 93% of the new common stock of the Company (3,720,000 shares) was issued to the sponsor of the Plan of Reorganization in exchange for $500,000 in cash. Through January 26, 2005, the Company and its subsidiaries were engaged in providing business-to-business transaction management services designed to simplify trading between buyers and suppliers.

Prior to February 12, 2008, the Company was a public shell company with no operations, and controlled by its significant stockholder, Trinad Capital Master Fund, L.P.

34 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Table of Contents SUMMARY OF THE TWISTBOX MERGER The Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger on December 31, 2007, as subsequently amended by the Amendment to Agreement and Plan of Merger dated February 12, 2008 (the "Merger Agreement"), with Twistbox Acquisition, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company ("Merger Sub"), Twistbox Entertainment, Inc. ("Twistbox"), and Adi McAbian and Spark Capital, L.P., as representatives of the stockholders of Twistbox, pursuant to which Merger Sub would merge with and into Twistbox, with Twistbox as the surviving corporation (the "Merger"). The Merger was completed on February 12, 2008.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, upon the completion of the Merger, each outstanding share of Twistbox common stock, $0.001 par value per share, on a fully-converted basis, with the conversion on a one-for-one basis of all issued and outstanding shares of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock of Twistbox and the Series B Convertible Preferred Stock of Twistbox, $0.01 par value per share (the "Twistbox Preferred Stock"), converted automatically into and became exchangeable for Company common stock in accordance with certain exchange ratios set forth in the Merger Agreement. In addition, by virtue of the Merger, each outstanding Twistbox option to purchase Twistbox common stock issued pursuant to the Twistbox 2006 Stock Incentive Plan (the "Plan") was assumed by the Company, subject to the same terms and conditions as were applicable under such Plan immediately prior to the Merger, except that (a) the number of shares of Company common stock issuable upon exercise of each Twistbox option was determined by multiplying the number of shares of Twistbox common stock that were subject to such Twistbox option immediately prior to the Merger by 0.72967 (the "Option Conversion Ratio"), rounded down to the nearest whole number; and (b) the per share exercise price for the shares of Mandalay Digital common stock issuable upon exercise of each Twistbox option was determined by dividing the per share exercise price of Twistbox common stock subject to such Twistbox option, as in effect prior to the Merger, by the Option Conversion Ratio, subject to any adjustments required by the Internal Revenue Code. As part of the Merger, the Company also assumed all unvested Twistbox options. The Merger consideration consisted of an aggregate of up to 12,325,000 shares of Company common stock, which included the conversion of all shares of Twistbox capital stock and the reservation of 2,144,700 shares of Company common stock required for assumption of the vested Twistbox options. The Company reserved an additional 318,772 shares of Company common stock required for the assumption of the unvested Twistbox options. All warrants to purchase shares of Twistbox common stock outstanding at the time of the Merger were terminated on or before the effective time of the Merger.

Upon the completion of the Merger, all shares of the Twistbox capital stock were no longer outstanding and were automatically canceled and ceased to exist, and each holder of a certificate representing any such shares ceased to have any rights with respect thereto, except the right to receive the applicable merger consideration. Additionally, each share of the Twistbox capital stock held by Twistbox or owned by Merger Sub, the Company or any subsidiary of Twistbox or the Company immediately prior to the Merger, was canceled and extinguished as of the completion of the Merger without any conversion or payment in respect thereof. Each share of common stock, $0.001 par value per share, of Merger Sub issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Merger was converted upon completion of the Merger into one validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable share of common stock, $0.001 par value per share, of the surviving corporation.

35 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Table of Contents As part of the Merger, the Company agreed to guarantee up to $8,250,000 of Twistbox's outstanding debt to ValueAct SmallCap Master Fund L.P. ("ValueAct" or "VAC"), with certain amendments. On July 30, 2007, Twistbox had entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement by and among Twistbox, the Subsidiary Guarantors (as defined therein) and ValueAct, pursuant to which ValueAct purchased a note in the amount of $16,500,000 (the "ValueAct Note" or the "VAC Note") and a warrant which entitled ValueAct to purchase from Twistbox up to a total of 2,401,747 shares of Twistbox's common stock (the "Warrant"). Twistbox and ValueAct also entered into a Guarantee and Security Agreement by and among Twistbox, each of the subsidiaries of Twistbox, the Investors, as defined therein, and ValueAct, as collateral agent, pursuant to which the parties agreed that the ValueAct Note would be secured by substantially all of the assets of Twistbox and its subsidiaries (the "VAC Note Security Agreement"). In connection with the Merger, the Warrant was terminated and we issued two warrants in place thereof to ValueAct to purchase shares of our common stock. One of such warrants entitled ValueAct to purchase up to a total of 1,092,622 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $7.55 per share. The other warrant entitled ValueAct to purchase up to a total of 1,092,621 shares of our common stock at an initial exercise price of $5.00 per share, which, if not exercised in full by February 12, 2009, would have been permanently increased to an exercise price of $7.55 per share. Both warrants were scheduled to expire on July 30, 2011. The warrants were subsequently modified on October 23, 2008 and cancelled on June 21, 2010, as set forth below. We also entered into a Guaranty (the "ValueAct Note Guaranty") with ValueAct whereby the Company agreed to guarantee Twistbox's payment to ValueAct of up to $8,250,000 of principal under the ValueAct Note in accordance with the terms, conditions and limitations contained in the ValueAct Note, which was subsequently amended as set forth below. The financial covenants of the ValueAct Note were also amended, pursuant to which Twistbox was required to maintain a cash balance of not less than $2,500,000 at all times and the Company is required to maintain a cash balance of not less than $4,000,000 at all times. The ValueAct Note was subsequently amended and restated as set forth below.

SUMMARY OF THE AMV ACQUISITION On October 23, 2008, the Company consummated the acquisition of 100% of the issued and outstanding share capital of AMV Holding Limited, a United Kingdom private limited company ("AMV") and 80% of the issued and outstanding share capital of Fierce Media Limited, United Kingdom private limited company (collectively the "Shares"). The acquisition of AMV is referred to herein as the "AMV Acquisition". The aggregate purchase price (subject to adjustments as provided in the stock purchase agreement) for the Shares consisted of (i) $5,375,000 in cash; (ii) 4,500,000 shares of Company common stock, par value $0.0001 per share; (iii) a secured promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $5,375,000 (the "AMV Note"); and (iv) additional earn-out amounts, if any, based on certain targeted earnings as set forth in the stock purchase agreement. The AMV Note was scheduled to mature on July 31, 2010, and bore interest at an initial rate of 5% per annum, subject to adjustment as provided therein.

In addition, also on October 23, 2008, in connection with the AMV Acquisition, the Company, Twistbox and ValueAct entered into a Second Amendment to the ValueAct Note, which among other things, provided for a payment-in-kind election at the option of Twistbox, modified the financial covenants set forth in the ValueAct Note to require that the Company and Twistbox maintain certain minimum combined cash balances and provided for certain covenants with respect to the indebtedness of the Company and its subsidiaries. Also on October 23, 2008, AMV granted to ValueAct a security interest in its assets to secure the obligations under the ValueAct Note. In addition, the Company and ValueAct entered into an allonge to each of those certain warrants issued to ValueAct in connection with the Merger, which, among other things, amended the exercise price of each of the warrants to $4.00 per share.

In addition, also on October 23, 2008, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with certain investors identified therein (the "Investors"), pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell to the Investors in a private offering an aggregate of 1,685,394 shares of common stock and warrants to purchase 842,697 shares of common stock for gross proceeds to the Company of $4,500,000. The warrants have a five year term and an exercise price of $2.67 per share. The funds were held in an escrow account pursuant to an Escrow Agreement, dated October 23, 2008 and were released to the Company on or about November 8, 2008.

On August 14, 2009, the Company and ValueAct entered into a Second Allonge to Warrant to Purchase 1,092,621 shares of the Company's common stock (the "Second Allonge"), which amended that certain warrant to purchase 1,092,621 shares of the Company's common stock, issued to ValueAct on February 12, 2008, as amended (the "ValueAct Warrant"). Pursuant to the Second Allonge, the exercise price of the ValueAct Warrant decreased from $4.00 per share to the lesser of $1.25 per share, or the exercise price per share for any warrant to purchase shares of the Company's common stock issued by the Company to certain other parties. In addition, also on August 14, 2009, the Company, Twistbox and ValueAct entered into a Third Amendment to the ValueAct Note. Pursuant to the Third Amendment, the maturity date was changed to July 31, 2010 and the interest rate of the ValueAct Note increased from 10% to 12.5%.

36-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Table of Contents On January 25, 2010, Mandalay Digital, Twistbox and ValueAct entered into a Waiver to Senior Secured Note (the "Waiver"), pursuant to which ValueAct agreed to waive certain provisions of the ValueAct Note. Pursuant to the Waiver, subject to Twistbox's compliance with certain conditions set forth in the Waiver, certain rights to prepay the ValueAct Note were extended from January 31, 2010 to March 1, 2010. In addition, subject to Twistbox's compliance with certain conditions set forth in the Waiver, the timing obligation of the Company and Twistbox to comply with the cash covenant set forth in the ValueAct Note was extended to March 1, 2010 and the minimum cash balance by which Twistbox and Mandalay Digital must maintain was increased to $1,600,000.

On February 25, 2010, Twistbox received a letter (the "Letter") from ValueAct alleging certain events of default with respect to the ValueAct Note. The Letter claimed that an event of default had occurred and was continuing under the ValueAct Note as result of certain alleged defaults, including the failure to provide weekly evidence of compliance with certain of Twistbox's and the Company's covenants under the ValueAct Note, the failure to comply with limitations on certain payments by the Company and each of its subsidiaries, and the failure of Twistbox and the Company to maintain minimum cash balances in deposit accounts of each of Twistbox and the Company. The Letter also claimed that the Waiver had ceased to be effective as a result of the alleged failure of Mandalay Digital to comply with the conditions set forth in the Waiver. On May 10, 2010, Twistbox received from ValueAct a Notice of Event of Default and Acceleration ("Notice") in which ValueAct stated that an event of default had occurred under the ValueAct Note as a result of Twistbox's and Mandalay Digital's failure to comply with the cash balance covenant under the ValueAct Note and, therefore, ValueAct accelerated all outstanding amounts payable by Twistbox under the ValueAct Note. In connection with the Notice, ValueAct instituted an administration proceeding in the United Kingdom against AMV.

On June 21, 2010, the Company sold all of the operating subsidiaries of AMV to an entity controlled by ValueAct and certain of AMV's founders in exchange for the release of $23,231,000 of secured indebtedness, comprising of a release of all amounts due and payable under the AMV Note and all amounts due and payable under the VAC Note except for $3,500,000 in principal (the "Restructure"). In connection with the Restructure, the ValueAct Note (as amended and restated, the "Amended ValueAct Note"), the Value Act Security Agreement and the Value Act Guaranty were amended and restated in their entirety. In addition, all warrants and common stock of the Company held by ValueAct were cancelled and all warrants and common stock of the Company held by AMV founders Nate MacLeitch and Jonathan Cresswell were repurchased by the Company for a price of $0.02 per share.

The Amended ValueAct Note matures on June 21, 2013 and bears interest at 10% payable in cash semi-annually in arrears on each January 1 and July 1 that the Amended ValueAct Note is outstanding. Twistbox may prepay the Amended ValueAct Note in whole or in part at any time without penalty. Notwithstanding the foregoing, at any time on or prior to January 1, 2012, Twistbox may, at its option, in lieu of making any cash payment of interest, elect that the amount of any interest due and payable on any interest payment date on or prior to January 1, 2012 be added to the principal due under the Amended ValueAct Note.

In the event of a Fundamental Change (as defined therein) of Twistbox, the holder of the Amended ValueAct Note will have the right for a period of thirty days to require Twistbox to repurchase the Amended ValueAct Note at a price equal to 100% of the outstanding principal and all accrued and unpaid interest.

Also on June 21, 2010, for purposes of capitalizing the Company, the Company sold and issued $2,500,000 of Senior Secured Convertible Notes due June 21, 2013 (the "New Senior Secured Notes" or the "Senior Debt") to certain significant stockholders. The New Senior Secured Notes have a three year term and bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum payable in arrears semi-annually.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, at any time on or prior to the 18th month following the original issue date of the New Senior Secured Notes, the Company may, at its option, in lieu of making any cash payment of interest, elect that the amount of any interest due and payable on any interest payment date on or prior to the 18th month following the original issue date of the New Senior Secured Notes be added to the principal due under the New Senior Secured Notes.

The accrued and unpaid principal and interest due on the New Senior Secured Notes are convertible at any time at the election of the holder into shares of Company common stock at a conversion price of US $0.15 per share, subject to adjustment. The New Senior Secured Notes are secured by a first lien on substantially all of the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries. The Amended ValueAct Note is subordinated to the New Senior Secured Notes.

Each purchaser of a New Senior Secured Note also received a warrant ("Warrant") to purchase shares of common stock of the Company at an exercise price of $0.25 per share, subject to adjustment. For each $1.00 of New Senior Secured Notes purchased, the purchaser received a Warrant to purchase 3.33 shares of common stock of the Company. Each Warrant has a five year term.

The Merger and the AMV Acquisition both included the issuance of common stock as all or part of the consideration. Based on the trading price of the common stock as of the acquisition dates, the total consideration was approximately $67.5 million for the Merger and approximately $22.2 million for the AMV Acquisition.

On December 16, 2011 the Amended ValueAct Note was purchased by Taja, LLC ("Taja") and immediately amended to remove certain negative covenants (as amended, the "Taja Note").

37 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Table of Contents SUMMARY OF LOGIA ACQUISITION On August 14, 2012, the Company entered into a Share Purchase Agreement to acquire subsidiaries and assets of Logia Group, Ltd.

In addition, the Company acquired, by assignment to Logia Holdings, the assets comprising the "LogiaDeck" software and certain operator and other contracts related to the business being sold by Logia, from S.M.B.P.

Company Overview From February 12, 2008 to October 23, 2008, our sole operations were those of our wholly-owned subsidiary, Twistbox. In October 2008, we acquired AMV Holding Limited and its subsidiaries, a mobile media and marketing company. On June 21, 2010, we sold AMV Holding Limited and its subsidiaries.

Twistbox is a global, mobile data services company primarily focused on enabling and optimizing the development, distribution and billing of content and applications across mobile networks. Operating since 2003, Twistbox publishes content in over 28 countries with distribution representing more than five hundred million subscribers. Twistbox has developed an intellectual property portfolio that includes worldwide or territory exclusive mobile rights to content, a proprietary publishing platform that includes tools to automate device management and billing of content and applications; a mobile games development and distribution platform that automates the porting of mobile games and applications to over 1,500 handset models; a content ratings system adopted by certain major wireless carriers to assist with the responsible deployment of age-verified programming and services; a suite of value added billing technologies that allow for in-application billing, and Digital Rights Management (DRM) solutions. Twistbox has leveraged its intellectual property and carrier-class technology to secure direct distribution and/or enabling agreements with leading mobile operators throughout Europe, North America and Latin America, including, among others, Vodafone, Telefonica, Orange, and SFR.

Twistbox maintains a global distribution agreement with Vodafone. Through this relationship, in certain markets Twistbox serves as one of Vodafone's exclusive category portal managers. Twistbox has similar exclusive agreements with other operators in selected territories.

In addition to its carrier publishing and enabling business, Twistbox operates a mobile ad network and suite of direct to consumer services that are promoted through advertising, as well as from other mobile publishers. Payments for the Company's direct to consumer services are processed through integration with the Company's own mobile billing solutions, third party mobile billing aggregators, and credit card processing companies.

Twistbox's target customers are the lucrative, tech-savvy 18 to 40 year old demographic. This group is a leading consumer group of new mobile handsets and represents more than 50% of mobile content consumption revenue globally. In addition, this group is very focused on consumer lifestyle brands and is much sought after by advertisers.

In December 2011, the Company purchased the assets of Digital Turbine. With the acquisition and integration of the assets of Digital Turbine, the Company will be able to provide an end-to-end, modular platform to the Company's existing carrier customers. The combined DT offering allows new and existing customers to choose from a fully outsourced, smart mobile ecosystem to more efficient, modular components that can be integrated with different operating systems to provide to the end user a more unified experience of mobile content across search, discovery, billing, and delivery. Innovative aspects of the Digital Turbine platform include the ability for carriers and OEMs to analyze the data presented to their end-users while giving them a more efficient way of finding and purchasing content.

In addition, we have wound down our development work on behalf of third parties. This was partly offset by higher platform and services fees, both due to higher revenues in our German operations and the addition of Logia revenues. Games revenue includes both licensed and internally developed games for use on mobile phones.

The revenue decline for Other Content is the result of multiple factors.

Revenues were also affected by the increase in the use of smart phones over feature phones, which hinder the carriers' ability to monetize content revenues effectively. Revenues have also been impacted by internal changes at the carrier level, although this is expected to level off due to the acquisition of Logia.

Other content includes a broad range of licensed and internally developed products delivered in the form of WAP, Video, Wallpaper and Mobile.

Our licensing agreements are predominantly on a revenue-share basis, and have therefore decreased relative to the decrease in revenue. We discontinued revenues during the quarter in the area of traffic and advertising costs that affected our sales mix, as well as our gross margin. Other direct cost of revenues has increased by $19 due to the amortization of intangible assets from the Logia acquisition.

Operating Expenses Three Months Ended September 30, % of Six Months Ended September 30, % of 2012 2011 Change 2012 2011 Change (In thousands) (In thousands) Product development expenses $ 365 $ 484 -25 % $ 731 $ 1,149 -36 % Sales and marketing expenses 215 222 -3 % 318 456 -30 % General and administrative expenses 3,191 1,200 166 % 5,591 2,116 164 % Product development expenses have historically included the costs to build, edit and optimize content formats for consumption on a mobile phone. Expenses in this area are primarily driven by personnel costs. Due to strategic changes in the focus of the development business as well as the consolidation of the device operating systems within the marketplace, our Twistbox headcount has been reduced over prior periods. However we anticipate growth in production development expenses in Digital Turbine due to the revenue growth anticipated.

Sales and marketing expenses represent the costs of sales and marketing personnel, and advertising and marketing campaigns. Selling costs, including our headcount were reduced over the past year, but is anticipated to increase as Digital Turbine enters the market and with the addition of Logia. The decrease year-over-year is the result of cost savings made by headcount reductions, as well as reduced travel and entertainment expenses in the Twistbox business.

General and administrative expenses represent management, finance and support personnel costs in both the parent and subsidiary companies which include professional and consulting costs, and other costs such as stock based compensation, rent, depreciation and bad debt expenses. The increase period to period is mostly due to an increase in stock compensation to management, as well as hiring additional management and consulting personnel and the addition of Logia.

40 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Table of Contents Financial Condition Assets Our current assets totaled $5.5 million and $10.1 million at September 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012, respectively. Total assets were $15.6 million and $14.8 million at September 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012, respectively. The decrease in current assets is primarily due to cash paid for the acquisition of Logia, offset by the increase in accounts receivable and prepaid expenses, also due to the acquisition of Logia. Total assets increased due to the assets acquired through the Logia acquisition.

Liabilities and Working Capital At September 30, 2012, our total liabilities were $11.7 million, compared to $9.1 million at March 31, 2012. The change in liabilities was mainly due to the amortization of debt discount, the exercise of warrants that were derivative liabilities, offset by an increase in accounts payable, mainly due to the acquisition of Logia. The Company had negative working capital of $3.9 million at September 30, 2012, which is less than the positive working capital of $4.1 million at March 31, 2012 mainly due to the movement of the Senior Secured Notes from long term debt to short term debt, as well as a decrease in cash.
