IDW Media Holdings, Inc – Corporate Actions Update – July 28, 2015

Summary:
On July 27, 2015, the Company filed with the Delaware Secretary of State an amendment of the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation to effect the conversion on Class A Common Stock into Class B Common Stock, effect a ten-for-one split of the Company’s common stock, increase the authorized shares of the capital stock of the Company and change the name of the Company from CTM Media Holdings, Inc. to IDW Media Holdings, Inc. The legal name of the Company is now IDW Media Holdings, Inc.

As of today all shares of our Class A stock have been converted to our Class B stock on a one for one basis. There is no longer any trading of the stock symbol CTMMA and there are no shares of Class A stock outstanding. Those shares that were owned under that symbol are now trading as CTMMB.

We anticipate that the ten for one split that we announced will become effective on or about Monday, August 3, 2015. When that happens, each share of Class B stock (including shares of Class B stock issued in respect of Class A stock that was converted) will become ten shares of Class B stock, and each share of Class C stock will become ten shares of Class C stock. On or about Friday, August 7, 2015 we expect that FINRA and OTC will assign a new trading symbol to reflect our new corporate name. We have not yet received confirmation from FINRA regarding the new symbol. We will post an update when we are given the new trading symbol.

Thank you for your continued support at this very exciting time for our Company.

 CTM Media Holdings, Inc. DE – Third Restated Certificate as of July 27, 2015

USA NETWORK ANNOUNCES PILOT PICK-UP FOR ‘BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL’

usa-logo

The Drama is Based on the Comic Book Property and is from Universal Cable Productions and IDW Entertainment

USA Network announced a pilot pick-up for BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL. The project is written and executive produced by JT Petty (“Splinter Cell”). David S. Goyer (“Batman v Superman”), Circle of Confusion’s Rick Jacobs (“Spare Parts”) and David Alpert (“Walking Dead”), and IDW Entertainment’s David Ozer and Ted Adams (“30 Days of Night”), will also executive produce. BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL is based on the IDW Publishing comic book created by Petty and is a co-production with Universal Cable Productions and IDW Entertainment.

“Fans of the comic book know that BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL is a thriller anchored inside the world of New York organized crime families,” said Jackie de Crinis, Executive Vice President Original Programming, “At its core, it is a family drama, albeit an unconventional one.”

BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL follows the inner workings of a secret subdivision of the NYPD that functions as social services for some of the city’s most unique citizens — werewolves. Delving into the lives of both the Case Officers, and the secretive, highly insular Kveld-Ulf, a community of werewolves living deep in the borough, BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL will examine city politics, immigrant communities, and families divided by ambition, secrecy, and tradition.

In addition, USA Network recently announced a pilot pick-up for POOR RICHARD’S ALMANACK, a co-production between Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, the project is from executive producer Jim Danger Gray (“Orange is the New Black”) and consulting producer Miguel Sapochnik (“Game of Thrones”). Previously announced pick-ups also include the Universal Cable Production dramas FALLING WATER from executive producers Gale Anne Hurd (“The Walking Dead”) of Valhalla Entertainment, Blake Masters (“2 Guns”) and the late Emmy Award-winner Henry Bromell (“Homeland”), and PARADISE PICTURES from executive producer Aaron Korsh (SUITS) and Rick Muirragui (SUITS).brooklyn-animal-control
