Court Grants Contempt Motion Against VisionChina



               Court Grants Contempt Motion Against VisionChina

PR Newswire

NEW YORK, Jan. 8, 2013

NEW YORK, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York State Supreme Court held
VisionChina Media, Inc. (Nasdaq: VISN) and its subsidiary, Vision Best Ltd.,
in contempt of court yesterday for their failure to abide by an earlier court
order to transfer $60 million into New York State, or agree with Gobi Partners
and Oak Investment Partners to an acceptable alternative arrangement, by
August 21, 2012.   The Court found that VisionChina acted in bad faith.

The Court ordered the $60 million transfer to ensure that funds are available
to partially compensate Gobi and Oak should they prevail in their lawsuit
against VisionChina relating to VisionChina's acquisition of a promising
digital advertising company called Digital Media Group (DMG), previously owned
by Gobi and Oak.  Gobi and Oak allege in the lawsuit that VisionChina
willfully disregarded its contractual obligation to pay Gobi and Oak for the
acquisition.

Oak and Gobi plan to pursue additional damages in connection with VisionChina
and Vision Best's breach of their agreements to purchase DMG.  Oak and Gobi
expect total damages to exceed $100 million.

More information about the case is available at www.savevisionchina.com.
