PEPSI MUSIC THE NEXT ARTIST GENERATION 2010.05.12
2 INTRODUCTION Since its association with Akon, Hitlab.com has made significant progress towards being a leader in the artist discovery, and song distribution fields. Having the opportunity to sell their music, play on our weekly radio show, get featured on our web site, and enter our showcase, encourages artists to upload their music for it to be evaluated by our patented Dynamic Hit Scoring (DHS) technology. Through the use of artificial intelligence algorithms, the DHS technology can predict the hit rating of song and therefore classify all the songs on the web site. Additionally, artists can incite their friends to help with the promotion of their songs with our facebook game called akon’s top promoter. Also, our iPhone application allows fans to have constant access to our large database of artists.

Team update Recently, Steve Owens from Los Angeles has joined the team and has had a tremendous impact on the site content and traffic. John Alexander has equally joined the team and brings his 30 years of experience in the music industry to the company; specifically he is handling our negotiations with EMI, Universal, The Grammy, ASCAP, BMI, Footprint Worldwide and MySpace Music.

9 LAST 12 MONTHS - Radio show Radio show: The launch of Akon’s Hitlab radio show has allowed for major visibly through out Canada. The success of the show has sparked world wide interest for a Ryan Seacrest type distribution of the show (40 million$/yr revenue)

11 RADIO SHOW Europe: We are negotiating with Akon and Global Radio in London in order to have Global Radio produce the show in the UK and be our syndicating partner in Europe. Global Radio would receive 20% of the syndication revenue in Europe with the target of having between 300 and 500 radio stations in that market to play the radio show US: Akon and I met with Lew Dickey, the owner of Cumulus Media which own 400 radio stations in the U.S., discussions are ongoing Canada Astral Media is our partner. “Akon’s Hitlab.com” radio show is now playing between 7 and 11p.m. in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Halifax. We have been negotiating a syndication agreement with Astral Radio for syndicating the show outside Canada with 80% of the revenues going to Hitlab and 20% to Astral
12 GRAMMY Discussions are ongoing with Peter Anton (V.P. Digital Media of The Recording Academy / Grammy) to Create a link between the Grammy membership base and Hitlab’s membership base. Grammy members would get a discount rate to upload music and to evaluate their music on www.hitlab.com and Hitlab artists that achieve a certain benchmark score, let’s say 80% i.e. the top 20, could be exposed to Grammy producers Hitlab Grammy in Asia: The idea would be to use Hitlab to host a Grammy associated event in Dubai which has expressed an interest in hosting such event. Think of an Indian that wins a Grammy in India that actually gets nominated for a Grammy in the US. This would accomplish for the Grammys what Slumdog Millionaire did for the Oscars.
