INVESTOR FAQ

When was Linktone Established?
We commenced operations as a business division of Intrinsic China Technology Ltd., which was incorporated in the Cayman Islands in November 1999. Intrinsic China Technology focused primarily on developing wireless data software and VAS (Value Added Services). In April 2001, our affiliated business division which focused on wireless data software was spun off to form a newly established holding company in the Cayman Islands, Intrinsic Technology (Holdings) Ltd., and our company was renamed Linktone Ltd.
In April 2008, PT Media Nusantara Citra Tbk (“MNC”), through its subsidiary, MNC International Limited, or MIL, completed a strategic investment in us and acquired approximately 57.1% of our total outstanding ordinary shares. Subsequently, through the acquisition of an additional 500,000 ADSs (American Depository Shares) from a third party via a privately negotiated transaction, MNC increased its stake to approximately 58.2% of our total outstanding ordinary shares.
In June 2012, MIL sold its entire shareholding of 245,000,000 ordinary shares of our Company, comprising approximately 59.9% of our total outstanding shares at the time of such sale, to Global Mediacom International Ltd, or GMI, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PT Global Mediacom Tbk (“GMC”).
Between 2011 and 2013, we repurchased approximately 17 million ordinary shares through our Share Repurchase Program from the open market. This repurchase exercise increased GMC’s shareholding to 60.6% as of 31 December 2013.
Global Mediacom is the largest and the only integrated media, broadcasting, entertainment and telecommunication group in Indonesia with operations that encompass content production, content distribution, television and radio broadcasting, newspaper, magazine, tabloids, telecommunication operator, mobile content aggregator, value added services provider, and IT system integrator.
