WRIT Media Group, Inc. Discloses Beneficial Share Purchases in Excess of 10% of Its Common Shares by Accredited Investor

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 5, 2014) -  WRIT Media Group, Inc. ( OTCQB : WRIT ) ( PINKSHEETS : WRIT ) disclosed today that Accredited Investor Irwin Zalcberg has accumulated 5,333,333 restricted common shares, an amount equal to 37.2% of the issued and outstanding common shares of WRIT, through a series of three private placement agreements, which also included warrants, that occurred between February 5th and April 22nd of 2014. This change in the ownership percentage of common shares did not result in any change in control for WRIT Media Group.

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires any beneficial owners of more than ten percent of a class of the company's equity securities to file a Form 3 within ten days of becoming a 10%+ beneficial owner outlining total ownership positions. Section 16(b) of the Securities Act of 1934 also provides that, if a greater-than-10-percent shareholder of an issuer engages in a purchase and sale of equity securities of such issuer within a period of less than six months, then any profit realized by the insider as a result of the two transactions must be disgorged to the issuer upon demand by the issuer or by any security holder of the issuer. WRIT Media Group looks forward to Mr. Zalcberg's full disclosure of his beneficial ownership activities through a Form 3 filing, and additional detailed information will be provided forthwith in the Company's upcoming annual 10-K filing. 

"An investment of this size from an Accredited Investor shows strong support for our growth," said Eric Mitchell, CEO & President of WRIT Media Group. "These funds came at an important time in our product development cycle, and will allow us to license additional content and bring it to market more swiftly. This financing also allowed us to retire a substantial amount of convertible debt and focus more directly on equity-only investors that offer more beneficial terms."
