VENUE SOLUTIONS HOLDINGS PLC
INCREASES SHAREHOLDING IN YOURDAY, INC

Following Venue Solutions Holdings Plc’s (“the Company” or “Venue Solutions”) recent issue of 4,000,000 new ordinary shares of 25p each, the Company yesterday completed a further investment in YourDay, Inc (“YourDay”) which increased its shareholding from 46% to 51% of YourDay’s issued share capital. As a result of this investment and acquisition (the details of which are set out below) YourDay is now a subsidiary company of Venue Solutions.

Venue Solutions has consolidated its position as the largest single investor in YourDay by subscribing for an additional 25,000 Series B Preference shares at $47.50 for an aggregate consideration of $1,187,500, this price having been set last year between Venue Solutions and YourDay at the time of completion of the Company’s then investment in YourDay. The Company has negotiated a further option to increase its shareholding in YourDay by having the right to subscribe for an additional 19,000 such shares at the same price of $47.50 and one Series C share at a price of $72.38 per share for every three Series B shares subscribed pursuant to this option. These subscription rights will in each case expire one month after YourDay launches ‘YourDay at Alton Towers’ at the Staffordshire-based theme park, which is expected to occur this month.

Pursuant to the above share subscription, Venue Solutions has also been granted a further 8,333 Series C warrants to add to its existing 38,433 Series C warrants which the Company was issued in August 2006. The exercise price of the above warrants is $72.38 per share which represents a reduction of $27.62 on the previous warrant exercise price of $100 per share.

Both Dominic Berger (CEO of Venue Solutions Holdings Plc) and Stephen Thomson (Chairman of Venue Solutions Holdings Plc) remain on the Board of YourDay. From the date YourDay became a subsidiary the results, assets and liabilities of YourDay will now be fully reflected in the Group’s consolidated financial statements, using the acquisition basis of consolidation, with the results, assets and liabilities of Venue Solutions. In respect of the financial year ended 31st December 2006, YourDay reported an unaudited loss of $1,312,472 and its unaudited gross assets were $5,604,579.

Dominic Berger, CEO of Venue Solutions said: “We have been working closely with our exclusive technology partner YourDay, Inc on the world-first implementation at Alton Towers and by further extending our participation in YourDay we are realising our stated strategy. As a subsidiary of Venue Solutions Holdings Plc, we believe that YourDay is on track to realise significant value to the Company.”
