EMI Courts Warner Music Group
EMI Approaches Warner Music Group
Following recent press speculation, EMI Group plc (EMI) confirms that on 1 May 2006 it made an approach to Warner Music Group Corp. (Warner Music) in connection with a proposed offer by EMI to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Warner Music for $28.50 per share, in a combination of cash and EMI shares. Subsequently, on 2 May 2006, Warner Music informed EMI that it did not wish to enter into discussions regarding EMI's proposal.
The Board of EMI continues to believe that an acquisition of Warner Music by EMI would be very attractive to both sets of shareholders but will only pursue a transaction that delivers enhanced value and earnings accretion to EMI shareholders.

The Warner Music Group Corp. board of directors has carefully evaluated the proposal in conjunction with the company's outside legal and financial advisors.
