PRESS RELEASE
Stockholm/Amsterdam, 19 December 2007

LBI International AB ("LBi" or "the Company"), the leading
international full service digital agency network, lowers its 2007
outlook. For the full year 2007 LBi currently expects to record
moderate revenue growth. The operating margin will be lower for 2007
compared to 2006 and will include a one-off restructuring charge
related to The Netherlands. Including this restructuring charge the
operating margin for Q4 will be positive.

The most significant factor for the lowered revenue and operating
margin outlook for 2007 is the less favourable performance in The
Netherlands in the fourth quarter. In order to address the operating
issues within the Dutch organization of LBi Lost Boys, Theo
Cordesius, COO LBi International, will direct the operating
improvements in cooperation with management. Mr. Cordesius will also
oversee the coordination and business development activities between
Lost Boys and the recently acquired Satama organization in The
Netherlands. The complementary offerings between Satama NL and Lost
Boys position LBi as the premier full service digital agency in The
Netherlands. The Company is confident that the operating issues in
The Netherlands will be resolved without further impact to its 2008
results.

The operating margin in Q4 is further impacted by additional expenses
incurred to complete corporate projects including the group
re-branding, financial reporting system upgrades, and the development
of the digital dashboard. As stated in the Q3 release, all
investments in these corporate activities will be completed by end of
this year.
