Press Release
SOURCE: ACTV, Inc.
ACTV Signs Letter Agreement With Liberty Media
NEW YORK, May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ACTV, Inc. (Nasdaq: IATV - news) reported today that it has signed a letter agreement with Liberty Media Corporation (NYSE: L - news) regarding a possible acquisition of all outstanding shares of ACTV common stock.

Under the terms of the letter agreement, Liberty, which currently owns approximately 16% of ACTV's outstanding shares, would purchase all remaining shares at a price of $2.00 per share. Such purchase price would be payable in either cash, shares of Liberty Series A common stock, or the publicly traded common stock of a Liberty subsidiary or affiliate. ACTV has entered into a 65-day exclusive negotiating period with Liberty with respect to the possible transaction, during which Liberty will conduct due diligence and negotiate definitive terms with ACTV. Should the exclusive period end without either a signed definitive agreement between the parties, or a decision by either party not to proceed with the possible transaction, Liberty may elect, for a period of one day following the end of the exclusive period, to acquire the remaining outstanding shares of ACTV at a price of $2.00 per share.

Neither Liberty nor ACTV can provide any assurances that a definitive agreement will be reached, or that a transaction ultimately will be consummated. Any potential transaction calling for the acquisition of all outstanding shares of ACTV common stock would require board approval of Liberty Media and ACTV as well as ACTV shareholder approval.

ACTV is being advised in this matter by Friedman, Billings, Ramsey & Co., Inc.

The SEC should investigate the dumping of shares yesterday so that Lberty could say that they are offering a 77% premium above yesterday's close.

I agree. It was a great fraud but it will go unnoticed due to the relatively small size of the company and its limited amount of shareholders. Malone screwed shareholders of other companies and I had a feeling he was going to do it here. I thought management would prevent it but then their options mostly have $1.50 price point. They get rich, we get screwed.

I'm sure the scumbag management and John Malone will get richer while we shareholders get nothing for backing this company for years and years. Another hard lesson learned. Never trust a scumbag CEO. Reese ran this company right into the ground so he's as big a scumbag as Samuels. Maybe they'll try to sue me but it doesn't matter - I have nothing left. I invested in this piece of shit.
