KEW Receives TSX Approval to Proceed with Normal Course Issuer Bid


KEW MEDIA GROUP INC. ("KEW" or the "Company") (TSX:KEW) today
announced that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") has accepted the
notice filed by the Company to establish a normal course issuer bid

The NCIB will commence on August 24, 2018 and will
terminate on August 23, 2019, or on an earlier date in the event that
the number of shares of the Company (the "Shares") sought in the NCIB
has been repurchased or if KEW feels that it is appropriate to do so.
Under the NCIB, KEW is authorized to purchase up to 854,282 Shares (out
of the 13,678,992 Shares outstanding as of August 17, 2018) representing
approximately 10% of the public float as of August 17, 2018, by way of
normal course purchases effected through the facilities of the TSX
and/or alternative Canadian trading systems.

Purchases will be made by KEW in accordance with the requirements of the
TSX and the price which KEW will pay for any such Shares will be the
market price of any such Shares at the time of acquisition, or such
other price as may be permitted by the TSX. For purposes of the TSX
rules, a maximum of 4,421 Shares may be purchased by KEW on any one day
under the NCIB, except where purchases are made in accordance with the
"block purchase exception" of the TSX rules.

KEW has established the NCIB because it believes that, from time to
time, the market price of the Shares may not fully reflect the
underlying value of KEW's business and future prospects. KEW believes
that, at such times, the repurchase of the Shares for cancellation would
be in the best interests of shareholders. As KEW is presently exploring
a number of potential acquisitions and financings, KEW will not commence
purchases under the NCIB at this time. Any Shares purchased pursuant to
the NCIB will be cancelled by KEW.
