Corus Entertainment is one of Canada’s most successful integrated media and entertainment companies. Founded by JR Shaw, the company was built from the media assets originally owned by Shaw Communications, and spun off as a separate, publicly-traded company in 1999. Since then, the Company’s asset base has grown substantially through strategic acquisitions and a strong operating discipline. Corus Entertainment's stock is found on the TSX under the symbol CJR.B. Corus Entertainment’s brands deliver compelling, engaging, interactive and informative content to millions of people every day. Corus’ television services include the kids brands YTV, Treehouse, Nickelodeon (Canada), TELETOON (50%) and TELETOON Retro (50%); and the women’s brands W Network, Cosmopolitan TV, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network (Canada) and W Movies. Additional assets include ABC Spark, CMT (Canada), Sundance Channel (Canada) and Telelatino; western Canada’s pay TV service Movie Central, with nine multiplex channels including HBO Canada; and three local over-the-air television stations. Corus also owns 37 radio stations that represent the most listened to stations in the country. Clustered predominately in the major Canadian markets, the Company’s portfolio includes a network of leading news-talk radio stations that provide Canadians with the best in news and talk radio, as well as classic, rock, country, new rock and contemporary music formats. Corus assets include Nelvana, one of the world’s leading creators, producers and distributors of children’s and animated programming, and related consumer products. Nelvana is the cornerstone of the Company’s content and production strategy and is renowned for such globally recognized brands as Babar, Franklin and Beyblade. Canada’s leader in children’s publishing – Kids Can Press – is also part of the Corus family. The Company’s powerful combination of entertainment assets, make Corus an industry leader in Canada and a significant player in the international marketplace. Our success means a stronger Canadian broadcasting industry, a stronger economy and stronger communities across Canada. Each year, the power and reach of Corus’ broadcasting assets work to assist local organizations, charities and people in need through millions of dollars worth of donated air-time and services, local fundraising and cash support. Through radio play for new Canadian singers and songwriters, the acquisition, development and production of numerous Canadian television projects and millions of dollars of direct investment in Canadian film production, Corus Entertainment is helping to build a sustainable and vibrant entertainment industry that is truly Canadian and globally competitive. At Corus, our vision is to be globally recognized as Canada’s most influential entertainment company. We’re achieving that vision with the hard work and commitment of our talented employees, many of whom are award-winners in their fields. The Shaw family’s commitment to customers, communities and employees is reflected in Corus Entertainment’s corporate values. These values – Accountability, Initiative, Innovation, Knowledge and Teamwork – shape the organization’s day-to-day business and strategies for growing Corus Entertainment in the future. Corus will continue to grow – in strength and profitability – by maximizing the synergies of its world-class assets, drawing on the exceptional talent and creativity of the Company’s employees and by offering the highest-quality programming, products and services to audiences and customers.

The Genting Story The multinational corporation known as the Genting Group of companies began from humble beginnings in 1965. A contractor who spoke no English, but only Hokkien, Mandarin, Malay and Cantonese, the late Tan Sri Lim Goh Tong built his business empire with simple principles: humility, discipline, and conviction. The self-proclaimed “Chinaman Businessman” was ahead of his time in many ways. He adopted environmental measures, built an integrated resort at Genting Highlands and executed his own succession plan in 2003, when he handed the chairmanship of the Genting Group to his son Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay. Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay has since taken the company to greater heights with a successful overseas strategy. The Genting Group has won international awards for its management leadership, financial prudence and sound investment discipline. It is also a corporation that values its employees and gives back to the communities where it operates in. About Genting Singapore For 25 years, the Company and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Group”) have been at the forefront of gaming and integrated resort development in Australia, the Bahamas, Malaysia, the Philippines and the United Kingdom. Today, it is best known for its flagship project, Resorts World™ Sentosa (“RWS”), which is one of the largest fully integrated destination resorts in South East Asia. The Company is listed on the Main Board of the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited. As at 30 September 2012, the Company had a market capitalisation of S$16.7 billion and ranks among Singapore’s 10 largest companies by market capitalisation
