FAB Universal Part of Sino-Russian Trade Forum With Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Putin

PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FAB Universal (NYSE MKT: FU), a worldwide distributor of digital entertainment, today announced that FAB Universal's board member, Zhang Hongcheng, was chosen to represent China's digital entertainment industry on a recent trade delegation to Russia. Mr. Zhang was one of 10 Chinese entrepreneurs attending the event in which Russian President Putin and Chinese President Xi addressed the delegates encouraging new business and trade between the represented companies.

During the junket, Zhang attended several business events including one based on copyright protected media and civil piracy resistance, the key foundation of FAB Universal's business strategy. Several strategic cooperation opportunities were presented and FAB intends to look for broader development and business expansion.

"In China, the demand for large quantities of high quality digital entertainment is growing rapidly and our customers are requesting more concerts and star signing events with their favorite entertainment personalities," said Zhang Hongcheng, Chairman, FAB Universal. "This kind of "fan culture" increases the opportunity for online and offline sales and consumption of FAB Universal products. Revenue from the entertainment industry in China is approximately 7% of GDP while in most developed countries it averages about 18%, therefore we believe FAB is well positioned for growth over the next five years as China's entertainment industry expands."
