The Company has also been granted an option to acquire an interest of up to 24.99 per cent. of the share capital of Terminal Music Limited (trading as the Mixing Rooms) ("Mixing Rooms") by John McLaughlin and Stuart McCredie for a consideration of up to #249,900, being #10,000 for each percentage interest acquired ("the Option"). Further details of the acquisition agreement and option agreement are set out below. John McLaughlin will join the Board as Managing Director on completion of the Proposals. John has over 20 years' experience in the music industry and the Directors believe he will be invaluable in contributing to the future strategy of the Group. Further details of his experience are set out below. The Company proposes to raise #982,500 before expenses, which will be applied to the current overheads of the business, working capital requirements, and may be applied to exercising the option in respect of the Mixing Rooms, in due course. As the Placing Price is below the current nominal value of the Company's ordinary shares of 7.5p, it is proposed to effect a share reorganisation to subdivide each issued ordinary share of 7.5p into one ordinary share of 1p and one deferred share of 6.5p. The unissued ordinary shares of 7.5p will be consolidated and subdivided into ordinary shares of 1p. Further details of the share reorganisation are set out below. The proposed share reorganisation requires shareholders' approval in general meeting. Accordingly, the Placing is subject to the passing of the relevant resolution and the Acquisition and the Option are, in turn, both conditional upon the Placing. Your Board propose to change the name of the Company to X-Phonics plc to facilitate adequate protection of the Company's intellectual property through the registration of trademarks. This protection was not possible with the Company's previous name. The change of name requires shareholders' approval in general meeting.
RNS Number:5705D Diablo Group plc 25 May 2006 Announcement - Diablo Group plc Diablo Group plc Change of Accounting Reference Date. Diablo Group plc has changed its accounting reference date to 30 September 2006 for the current year and annually thereafter. As notified at the time of Admission to AIM, this is to bring the accounting period in line with the practice in the music industry to account for royalties receivable in October of each year.
Interim results for the nine months ended 31 December 2005 Chairman's Statement Financial Results I am pleased to announce the Group's first results following the Placing and Admission to AIM in October 2005. These results for the nine months ended 31 December 2005 reflect the planned investment in the business since flotation, and the build up of the capabilities, infrastructure and contacts critical to growth. The Group made a pre-tax loss of £596,936. The operating loss for the Group was £445,956. The Group's accounting policy for revenue recognition is to recognise only those revenues that are certain (i.e. receipt of cash), and as a consequence, no estimates for future royalties are included in these results. Cost of sales includes all direct costs incurred in respect of sales recognised or to be recognised in the future. The Group's accounting policy as regards recoupable costs from artists or writers is that advances and expenses incurred in supporting acts are assessed and the value of the un-recouped portion is determined by reference to the prospect for future recovery based upon past sales performance, current popularity and projected sales. In this period no such carry forward of expenditure was considered appropriate primarily because of the early stage of development of our business. Administrative expenses of £288,717 in the period reflect the planned increase in salaried employees and directors, and the running costs of the business.

Embargoed: 24 January 2006, 0700hrs Diablo Group Plc ("Diablo" or the "Company") Re. Contract Diablo Group Plc, the AIM-listed independent record label, music publishing and media production company, is pleased to announce the signing of contracts on 19 January with The Disc Kiosk Ltd ("The Disc Kiosk") to become a sales agent for its CD on demand services Worldwide. The technology employed by The Disc Kiosk allows record companies to maximise revenues from old and deleted titles by making them available to customers online. The CDs are then produced to order, thus removing the need for costly pressing and storage, and mailed direct to the customer. Diablo will be working in partnership with The Disc Kiosk to expand the business and client list, which already includes Universal Music Group who have approximately 1,000 deleted titles with The Disc Kiosk, which have been selling for 18 months. Diablo will be looking to attract additional record labels of all sizes, from the UK and internationally, to add their catalogues to The Disc Kiosk and will benefit from commissions on a per unit basis of CDs sold by The Disk Kiosk from catalogues introduced by the Company. Diablo's Creative Director, Neil Reed, said, "The contract with The Disc Kiosk represents a substantial opportunity for both parties. The service they provide offers to record labels a risk free additional revenue stream. Coupled with our marketing and industry knowledge, this can only be a win-win situation for Diablo."
Immediate release: 30 November 2005 Diablo Group Plc (the "Company") Record Label & Publishing Division: Update Diablo Group plc, the independent record label, music publishing and media Production company, is pleased to announce its collaboration with Rick Finch, a US producer who has achieved four Grammy awards. The arrangement is in respect of a planned release in the US of an album by British artist Fran Balke. The album will contain four tracks which have been written and published by Diablo and are being co-produced with Rick Finch. The company has ceased its contract with indie rock band, Dive Dive. This decision was taken by the Board based upon past album sales and anticipated future revenues from this group not achieving appropriate levels.
Diablo Group Plc, the independent record label, music publishing and media production company, is pleased to announce the signing of contracts with Russian artist, "Love," to produce her new music video. The track, "Nowhere to Run," is due for release in Russia in the New Year. This contract comes as a result of the establishment of a new relationship with leading Russian artiste manager, Michael Topalov, from whom the Company expects to receive further commissions for music videos in the next three months. The Company is currently in discussions regarding a number of other Russian artists that are keen to come to the UK and take advantage of the production values that Diablo can offer. One such artist is singer/songwriter Tinatin, who Diablo are currently negotiating with to shoot a video for her song "I Pray." Managing Director, Mike Unwin, commented, "The Russian music industry is a key market to break into as the majority of their music production is performed in the UK and USA. Our relationship with Michael Topalov, which has already resulted in one signed contract, and another pending, should provide Diablo with an attractive and lucrative flow of business from Russia."
Looks like a good Punt, my grand kids have heard of them (bands) and they have them on their ring tones. The company doesn't give the band an advance (that's a plus) and they are Multi-Faceted group that produce music, videos, write songs, manage bands etc....... I'll have some of that... as I am sure one of the majors will come and gobble them up in the net 2 years (like they do with all the other Indies)...... Good Luck!
