MPTV Announces New Trading Symbol, Stock Split and 1-for-1 Stock Dividend.

IRVINE, Calif. -- In a move to enhance its share price and make it more attractive to institutional investors, MPTV, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: MPTT) , an innovator in Timeshare Resort Development, today announced that effective at the open of market on Monday, January 14, 2002, the Company's trading symbol will change from MPTV to MPTT and the Company's common stock will be consolidated in a one-for-ten reverse stock split. The Company will also issue a one-for-one stock dividend to shareholders of record as of Monday, January 21, 2002. The dividend will be paid out to shareholders on Friday, January 25, 2002, and we understand that the stock price on that day will not be adjusted for the dividend.

"As we come closer to closing on major financing and building our timeshare units, MPTV is becoming increasingly attractive to institutional investors. Many of the investors have certain guidelines or parameters they must adhere to in selecting their investments. Based on our direct research and talks with the investment community, a capitalization structure with fewer shares outstanding and a correspondingly higher stock price will put MPTV within the reach of these investors," stated Mr. Hurley C. Reed, MPTV's President and CEO.
