COMMENTS / EMAILS FROM BUNM PRESIDENT: Michael Devellano
When reading the below past comments by our BUNM president, keep in mind that all of the growth for hypster.com has been organic. Mr. Devellano intends to continue with "organic growth" and has commented on the preference of setting up the company for a buyout. The anticipated potential buyout opportunities are of great interest to all of the BUNM shareholders as we feel this would create a significant profit opportunity. The anticipation of reaching 1,000,000 users of the hypster.com product is due to this being a landmark for attracting buyout entities. In addition, as the Alexa rankings move rapidly toward 1,000, further attention will be attracted.
With the above in mind, we have not yet received an update from Mr. Devellano as to the 2008 revenues or potential buyout interests. It is the general feeling that he is concentrating on getting the company in line for a buyout. As new communications or press releases occur the ibox will be updated accordingly.
In the meantime, comfort is given in the fact that AS SHAREHOLDERS WE CAN WATCH OUR PRODUCT GROW BY VISITING THE WWW.HYPSTER.COM WEBSITE DAILY AND CHECKING FOR ADDED USERS which are occuring at rapid rate.
"The online web popularity we have created, Hypster.com is growing rapidly."
"All of this data helps us build a model for selling advertising revenue on the site and provides a base for future commerce in the download store. Currently most of the development has centered around Search Engine Optimization which brings free traffic (vs paying for traffic) from search engines. And it is stuff the end user wouldn't "see".
"We have created the framework for an extensive artist database and music related news with feeds from Rolling Stone, Spin.com and Billboard.com. All of these will help to build recurring user traffic."
"If you understand the online ad model this translates into inventory that the company can sell. So what we have done now provides a framework for strong online revenues in the coming months. We are developing a media kit and a relationship with online ad sales agencies that will help us realize this revenue but the future looks very exciting and we are amazed at the user acceptance of the site."
"In web 2.0 terms we have a hit on our hands. Our goal would be to grow this into a significant property with new features and users in the coming months and strong plays into mobile music playlist (read: cell phones and in car music playlist streaming) online and mobile radio -- and mobile and online video properties under the hypster brand (hypster.tv)."
The mobile plays are exciting because they take a free online ad supported model and extend it to a paid subscription model similar to XM or Sirius Radio but without the infrastructure costs of having to build a satellite network. Wireless carriers around the world are building their own multi billion dollar 3G (read high speed wireless) networks on EV-DO (Sprint PCS, Verizon, Telus, Bell) and HSDPA (over 2 Billion users on GSM networks including Cingular AT&T , Rogers, T-Mobile etc). We have technology plans to start extending our services to mobile carrier users. Music is a major driver of user demand for 3G services for these carriers and they require partners like Burned Media with known properties like hypster.com, .tv "
EMAIL FROM OCTOBER 29, 2008

"- all growth of the hypster brand under current funding and business model is and will remain organic and search engine/web based and as evidenced by traffic and user growth is effective."

Expand to 10 Billion authorized
Estimated 5B restricted by end of '08

Online Property Valuation of $10M to $20M
Target of $0.001 to $0.002/share end of 2008
'08 Capital Requirements $0.5 M to $1.0 M
Seek funding for 2009 fiscal of $5-15 M for approx
5 B additional shares (1/3)
Target '09 valuation of $50-300M (5-15M users)
Current market valuation is too low
Company believes the Hypster.com value per user is closer to MySpace or Last.fm
Actual property value at $1.8 to $3.6 M
Therefore $0.00062 to $0.00124/share
This is not even future looking - What is value at 1,000,000+ users ?
Below is a list of EXCELLENT POSTS regarding revenue and future outlook. Please note that these are OPINIONS only!

You know, I was doing a little surfing around and ran into these stats regarding Hypster from http://www.quantcast.com/hypster.com#traffic
Directly Measured Data
Hypster.com is a top 10,000 site that reaches over 396K monthly people, of which 261K (66%) are in the U.S. The site appeals to a teen, African American and Hispanic, primarily female group. The typical visitor frequents urbanchat.com, visits mp3.com, and shops at drjays.com.
Page Views Per Month
This quote comes from an e-mail posted above:
"If you understand the online ad model this transalates into inventory that the company can sell. The site will maintain 3 ad positions and going rate for music related sites is $12-15 per 1000 page views. Even at $10 CPM 1,000,000 page views in a month on a growing scale translates into potential inventory of $30,000 USD in advertising for the preceeding month."
If the above stats are correct and we're picking up more than 15M pageviews per month, Mike is raking in a pretty good bit of $$ without a lot of overhead or debt.

The Best Buy purchase of napster.com was a very instructive in showing a wider buying pool out there than I personally surmised.
The powers that be there must have realized that brick and mortar stores for selling/distributing music are quickly falling out of vogue and profitability. That's why Best Buy is testing on site music lessons and other 'thinking outside the box' initiatives. IME a strong Web-based presence will be essential to sustainability of any major music-reseller as time goes on.
Look at the growth for example of holiday shopping online as the years go on. Who could see that coming in the early 1990s walking through the local mall?
From newspaper/media conglomerates to private equity firms--there is a need for a hot property with growth potential.
Would you buy a dying daily newspaper with rapidly diminishing circulation for millions or go with a property like hypster.com looking to a bright future and a growth in returns? With a bit of additional exposure and positive hype--this property next year at this time could be looking at an excess of 2-3 million users.
The value of a hypster.com with growing Web loyalty is enormous. Why? because once people come to your site (willingly) you can cross-sell products, offer them traditional/music news and basically build a Web-based juggernaut that can capture market share online.
Greater ad revenues can ensue and the official hypster.com T-shirt might become a common sight of High School and college campuses throughout the nation. Looking beyond internationally--music is truly an international language that can translate well in an era of multinational corporations.
'The writing is all over the wall' concerning the demise of old-media forms and the sad reality is that a number of companies are going to completely fold for a lack of understanding the present and future value of a property like hypster.com and related opportunities for value-added enhancements.
Don't buy hypster.com at your own financial peril: Hypster.com hasn't even really scratched the surface as far as what it can become.
"JEPPYD" - #msg-36128277
Just remember, every user signup increases the $$$ value of Hypster.com. If there are any companies out there thinking about buying hypster.com, they know that waiting will be costly, not only because of the threat that another company swooping in and buying hypster, but also the cost of buying such a site will be rising with every single user signup.
"PASSTHESALT" - #msg-36127097
No one truly knows but let me say that in the event of a lucrative and totally unexpected buyout announcement at 1,000,000 or 1,600,000 or 1,999,000 this issue could see volume over the billion mark in the period of ONE trading day.
IME what the approach to 1,000,000 will do is inject more (buying) speculation about positive prospects for new initiatives and/or buyout prospects.
"PASSTHESALT" - #msg-36082277
BUNM is showing more-bullish tendencies as we approach 1,000,000. RSI is still around 50% mark so we have plenty of upside.
We ought to be attractive for investors in that we continue to be at the bottom of a major cup and handle formation. This economy has reduced money flows into plays like ours but once we approach and hit 1,000,000 the speculation premium is going to kick in. Price as always is going to follow sustained volume.
I do not think there is going to be any warning about when news will come our way. The co. has been running on silent mode for quite a while and I don't believe 'news' is going to come through any unofficial channels. If news is 'leaked' we could see huge volume increase but other than that major news will likely come with no warning whatsoever.
For all any one of us know--the co. could now be engaged in serious and substantive talks with a buyout suitor. If not--the hypster member base will continue to grow in an exponential manner.
Last year on this date (262,443 USERS March 5th 2008)!!! We are approaching 925,000 currently March 5th 2009)!!!!
The potential of hypster.com IME is basically 'untapped' when you look at the potential streams of income the co. could yet obtain from its customer 'base.' Any of the above is additional to any current monies now obtained through ad revenues.
I currently don't see indication from BUNM management that they intend to mine these revenue streams--rather I see a buyout entity moving this to the next level.
Who doesn't believe the odds are greater for a buyout offer with 1,000,000 users rather than 262,443?
IMO there ought to be numerous entities who can 'see the light' and see that hypster.com could be their present and future business survival and pay for the privilege accordingly.
For the naysayers--take a look at the kind of money that Best Buy threw at napster.com (HINT excess of 120 million) and you will quickly deduct the actual and potential value of digital music media sites like ours.
Yes .0005 will be a key test as will .0010 or .0050 for that matter. We need to show the investment community that this PPS can move but also in order to develop volume momentum. We need and welcome all types of investors.
Right now IME BUNM is a case of the 'extreme.' The current 'extreme' is how low the PPS is in light of the value that has grown. There are a number of unknowns but what is known is that this is not an overvalued stock!!! The PPS has not adequately reflected the growth of the property--so I make the point that this issue is extremely undervalued.
I think all of our understandable excitement about the user growth of hypster.com has obscured how attractive the investment opportunity is at these levels .0001-.0002
Fortunately the focus is now fixing more on the stock, PPS etc. We will continue to attract new investors and of course WELCOME NEW BOARD MEMBERS! The following statement is for all shareholders but particularly new or prospective holders. It's important to view the flagship property of BUNM in the proper context:
Last year on April 1st 2008 hypster.com attained 300,000 users,
1,000,000 will be ATTAINED early April 2009.
333% (+) Growth Rate in ONE YEAR!!!!!!
300,000 X 333% = 999,000
Advertisers and associated revenues can't help but notice the above growth percentage. Hypster.com audience is exponentially growing!!
THE POTENTIAL FUTURE of hypster.com using a bullish/exponential growth rate :
1,000,000 X 333% = (3,330,000) by April 2010 ??????????
3,330,000 X 333% = (11,088,900) April 2011 ??????????????
