Liberty Media to Offer to Buy Balance of FUN Technologies Shares

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo., June 21 /CNW/ -- Liberty Media Corporation (Nasdaq:  
LCAPA/B) ("Liberty") announced today that it intends to make an offer to
purchase all the common shares of FUN Technologies Inc. (AIM: FUN) (TSX: FUN)
that are not owned by Liberty for the cash purchase price of GBP 1.635 per
share (approximately C$3.50).  Liberty currently owns approximately 53% of the
outstanding FUN common shares.  The closing prices of FUN common shares on the
AIM and TSX on June 21 were GBP 1.5750 and C$3.15, respectively.
    The offer will be subject to the condition that at least a majority of
the FUN common shares outstanding or deemed to be outstanding for this purpose
that are not owned by Liberty and its affiliates have been validly tendered
and not withdrawn, so that once the offer is completed, Liberty will be in a
position to acquire all remaining shares of FUN through an amalgamation,
arrangement or similar transaction.  The offer also will be subject to a
number of other customary terms and conditions to be described in the
take-over bid circular that will be distributed to FUN shareholders.
    Liberty expects to launch the offer by way of a take-over bid to be
governed by applicable securities laws promptly following review by a
committee of FUN's independent directors.
