Digital Generation and Clinton Group Reach Agreement to Nominate Two New Independent Directors for Election at 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders
Clinton Group Agrees to Support DG's Director Nominees; Special Committee's Exploration of Strategic Alternatives Remains Active and Ongoing

DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- DG® (NASDAQ: DGIT), the world's leading ad management and distribution platform, today announced that it has reached an agreement with Clinton Group, Inc., Clinton Magnolia Master Fund, Ltd., Clinton Spotlight Master Fund, L.P., Clinton Special Opportunities Master Fund, Ltd. and Clinton Relational Opportunity Master Fund, L.P. (the "Clinton Group") relating to the Company's 2012 Annual Stockholder Meeting.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Company will nominate Melissa Fisher and Peter Markham for election to three-year terms at its 2012 Annual Meeting on February 21, 2013. DG intends to increase the size of the Board from seven to eight members. The Clinton Group, which owns approximately 6% of the outstanding shares of DG's common stock, has agreed to vote its shares in support of all DG director nominees at the 2012 Annual Stockholder Meeting.

As previously announced, DG has formed a Special Committee of the Board of Directors composed of three independent directors to review DG's strategic alternatives. The Special Committee process and the exploration of DG's strategic alternatives remain active and ongoing, and the Special Committee currently is engaged in negotiations regarding DG's strategic alternatives. DG can offer no assurances that such negotiations will result in a transaction agreement containing terms satisfactory to DG. DG's strategic alternatives process is expected to be completed in the near future and DG does not intend to disclose developments in this process until such time as the Board of Directors determines to enter into any transaction or DG otherwise deems further disclosure appropriate. DG will make disclosures regarding the Special Committee process prior to the 2012 Annual Meeting on February 21, 2013.

"We believe this agreement with the Clinton Group is in the best interests of the Company and all DG stockholders," said Jeffrey Rich, Chair of the DG Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. "We welcome the addition of Melissa and Peter and look forward to their participation as Board members. As a Board we remain focused on driving enhanced value for all of our stockholders, including through the evaluation of strategic alternatives for the Company."

"We are pleased that DG's strategic review process is ongoing and that the Special Committee is working hard to achieve a favorable outcome for stockholders," said George Hall, Chief Executive Officer of the Clinton Group. "We believe that these two new independent directors will assist DG with its path forward."
