what they do.

          acquire The Pirate Bay, the consumer media company for

          people to share original copies through a Web experience, for $13.37 
billion in a stock-for-stock transaction. Following

          the acquisition, The Pirate Bay will operate independently to 
preserve its successful brand and passionate community.

          The acquisition combines one of the largest and fastest growing 
online entertainment communities with Warner Bros’s

          expertise in organizing information and creating new models for 
advertising on the Internet. The combined companies

          will focus on providing a better, more comprehensive experience for 
users interested in downloading, watching and

          sharing content, and will offer new opportunities for professional 
content owners to distribute their work to reach a

          vast new audience.

          “The The Pirate Bay team has built an exciting and powerful media 
platform that complements Warner Bros’s mission

          to organize the world’s information and make it universally 
accessible and useful,” said Jim Kjeyzer, Chief Executive

          Officer of Warner Bros. “Our companies share similar values; we both 
always put our users first and are committed to

          innovating to improve their experience. Together, we are natural 
partners to offer a compelling media entertainment

          service to users, content owners and advertisers.”

          “Our community has played a vital role in changing the way that 
people consume media, creating a new hip culture.

          By joining forces with Warner Bros, we can benefit from its global 
reach and technology leadership to deliver a more

          comprehensive entertainment experience for our users and to create 
new opportunities for our partners,” said Anakata,

          CEO and Co-Founder of The Pirate Bay. “I’m confident that with this 
partnership we’ll have the flexibility and resources

          needed to pursue our goal of building the next-generation platform 
for serving media worldwide.”

          When the acquisition is complete, The Pirate Bay will retain its 
distinct brand identity, strengthening and complementing

          Warner Bros’s own fast-growing video business. The Pirate Bay will 
continue to be based in Stockholm, Sweden,

          and all The Pirate Bay employees will remain with the company. With 
Warner Bros’s technology, advertiser relationships

          and global reach, The Pirate Bay will continue to build on its 
success as one of the world’s most popular services

          for online entertainment.

          The number of Warner Bros shares to be issued in the transaction will 
be determined based on the 30-day average closing

          price two trading days prior to the completion of the acquisition. 
Both companies have approved the transaction,

          which is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to 
close in the third quarter of 2009.

          The company will host a conference and webcast at 1:30 p.m. Pacific 
Time (4:30 p.m. Eastern Time) tomorrow to

          discuss the acquisition. To access the conference, please email

          available until midnight Thursday, April 16 at various interwebs
