On August 21, 2013, the Board of Directors of One Horizon Group, Inc. (the “Company”) appointed Mr. Charles Richard Vos (“Mr. Vos”) as a director of the Company. Mr. Vos is expected to be named to an Audit Committee, Compensation Committee, and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors when these committees are established.
 
Mr. Vos has been a non-executive director since 2007 of Avanti Communications Group plc, a public company listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE:AVN).  He is chairman of its remuneration committee and past chairman of its audit committee.  In addition, since 2001, Mr. Vos has been a non-executive director of NSSC Operations Ltd., which operates the National Space Centre in the United Kingdom.  He is the chairman of its audit committee.  From June 2005 to June 2010, Mr. Vos was a director of our United Kingdom subsidiary, One Horizon Group plc (formerly SatCom Group Holdings plc) (“One Horizon UK”), and from October 2006 to June 2010 was also Chairman.  From July 2005 to March 2010, One Horizon UK was listed on the Alternative Investment Market of the London Stock Exchange (AIM:SGH).  From October 2008 to October 2010, Mr. Vos served as a director of TerreStar Europe Ltd., a former start-up business seeking to provide mobile satellite services in Europe. From April 2003 to 2009, Mr. Vos was chairman of the Telecommunications and Navigation Advisory Board of the British National Space Centre (subsequently replaced by the United Kingdom Space Agency).   From September 2006 to June 2009, Mr. Vos was a director of Avanti Screenmedia Group plc, formerly listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE:ASG), which provided satellite and other services.  From 2004 to 2006, Mr. Vos was an advisor on government relations for Inmarsat plc (“Inmarsat”), a British satellite telecommunications public company listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE:ISAT) and a member of the FTSE 250 Index.  From 1999 to 2003, Mr. Vos served as Chairman of Inmarsat (formerly Inmarsat Ventures plc).  From April 2004 to July 2005, he was non-executive chairman of Inmedia Communications Ltd., a provider of fixed satellite-based services in the United Kingdom.  From 2002 to 2003, Mr. Vos served as a member of the board of the European Satellite Operator’s Association, which represents the interests of European satellite operators to various European Union institutions.  From 1995 to 2000, he was head of Satellite Investments, British Telecommunications plc (“BT”), one of the world’s leading communications services companies, in which he was responsible for the management of BT’s investments of approximately ₤200 million in three intergovernmental satellite organizations, Eutelsat, Inmarsat and Intelsat.  During this period, Mr. Vos also served as a governor of the United Kingdom and Ireland for Intelsat, the leading provider of satellite services worldwide, and a public company listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE:I).  He also served as Intelsat’s vice-chairman of the board and chairman of the audit and budget and finance committees from 1997 to 1998, and as Chairman of Intelsat from 1998 to 1999.  From 1992 to 1996, Mr. Vos served as a director of the European Telecommunications Network Operators Association (“ETNO”), and from 1994 to 1995 served as its chairman.  From 1969 to 2000, Mr. Vos served in various positions within BT, including regional director Europe and chief executive officer of an affiliate company, BT France SA.
 
Mr. Vos obtained his Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Modern Languages from London University of Texas at Austin in 1968, and his Diploma in Management Studies from Kingston Polytechnic in 1973. He is a member of the Institute of Directors.
 
There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Vos and any other persons pursuant to which he was selected as a director and there are no transactions between the Company and Mr. Vos that would require disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

On August 22, 2013, Mr. Vos entered into the Company’s form of Independent Director Agreement and form of Indemnification Agreement.  Under the terms of the Independent Director Agreement, the Company agreed to pay Mr. Vos a monthly salary of ₤1,000 (approximately $1,558.10), as compensation for the services to be provided by him as a director. Under the terms of the Indemnification Agreement, the Company agreed to indemnify Mr. Vos against expenses, judgments, fines, penalties or other amounts actually and reasonably incurred by Mr. Vos in connection with any proceeding if Mr. Vos acted in good faith and in the best interests of the Company. This brief description of the terms of the Independent Director Agreement and Indemnification Agreement is qualified by reference to the provisions of the forms of agreements filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to this current report on Form 8-K.

On August 22, 2013, Mr. Stephen Austin resigned from his position as a director of the Company.  Mr. Austin did not resign due to a disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.

Exhibit 10.2
 
INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT
 
This Indemnification Agreement, dated as of ________________, is made by and between One Horizon Group, Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation (the “Company”), and ________________, a director of the Company (the “Indemnitee”).
 
RECITALS
 
A. The Company and the Indemnitee recognize that the present state of the law is too uncertain to provide the Company’s officers and directors with adequate and reliable advance knowledge or guidance with respect to the legal risks and potential liabilities to which they may become personally exposed as a result of performing their duties for the Company;
 
B. The Company and the Indemnitee are aware of the substantial growth in the number of lawsuits filed against corporate officers and directors in connection with their activities in such capacities and by reason of their status as such;
 
C. The Company and the Indemnitee recognize that the cost of defending against such lawsuits, whether or not meritorious, is typically beyond the financial resources of most officers and directors of the Company;
 
D. The Company and the Indemnitee recognize that the legal risks and potential liabilities, and the threat thereof, associated with proceedings filed against the officers and directors of the Company bear no reasonable relationship to the amount of compensation received by the Company’s officers and directors;
 
E. Sections 518 and 1741-1750 of the Pennsylvania Business Corporation Law (the “Law”) empowers Pennsylvania corporations to indemnify their directors and further states at Section 518 that the indemnification provided shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which those seeking indemnification of advancement of expenses may be entitled under any agreement, resolution of members, resolution of disinterested directors, or otherwise, both as to action in his or her official capacity and as to action in another capacity while holding such office;
 
F. The Company’s bylaws authorize the indemnification of the directors of the Company;
 
G. The Board of Directors of the Company has concluded that, to retain and attract talented and experienced individuals to serve as officers and directors of the Company and to encourage such individuals to take the business risks necessary for the success of the Company, it is necessary for the Company to contractually indemnify its officers and directors, and to assume for itself liability for expenses and damages in connection with claims against such officers and directors in connection with their service to the Company, and has further concluded that the failure to provide such contractual indemnification could result in great harm to the Company and its shareholders;
 
H. The Company desires and has requested the Indemnitee to serve or continue to serve as a director or officer of the Company, free from undue concern for the risks and potential liabilities associated with such services to the Company; and
 
I. The Indemnitee is willing to serve, or continue to serve, the Company, provided, and on the expressed condition, that the Indemnitee is furnished with the indemnification provided for herein.

AGREEMENT
 
NOW, THEREFORE, the Company and the Indemnitee agree as follows:
 
1. Definitions.
 
(a) “Expenses” means, for the purposes of this Agreement, all direct and indirect costs of any type or nature whatsoever (including, without limitation, any fees and disbursements of Indemnitee’s counsel, accountants and other experts and other out-of-pocket costs) actually and reasonably incurred by the Indemnitee in connection with the investigation, preparation, defense or appeal of a Proceeding; provided, however, that Expenses shall not include judgments, fines, penalties or amounts paid in settlement of a Proceeding.
 
(b) “Proceeding” means, for the purposes of this Agreement, any threatened, pending or completed action or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (including an action brought by or in the right of the Company) in which the Indemnitee may be or may have been involved as a party or otherwise, by reason of the fact that the Indemnitee is or was a director or officer of the Company, by reason of any action taken by him/her or of any inaction on his or her part while acting as such director or officer or by reason of the fact that he or she is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, employee or agent of another foreign or domestic corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, or was a director or officer of the foreign or domestic corporation which was a predecessor corporation to the Company or of another enterprise at the request of such predecessor corporation, whether or not the Indemnitee is serving in such capacity at the time any liability or expense is incurred for which indemnification or reimbursement can be provided under this Agreement.
 
2. Agreement to Serve. The Indemnitee agrees to serve or continue to serve as a director or officer of the Company to the best of his or her abilities at the will of the Company or under separate contract, if such contract exists, for so long as the Indemnitee is duly elected or appointed and qualified or until such time as the Indemnitee tenders his or her resignation in writing. Nothing contained in this Agreement is intended to create in the Indemnitee any right to continued employment.
 
3. Indemnification.
 
(a) Third Party Proceedings. The Company shall indemnify the Indemnitee against Expenses, judgments, fines, penalties or amounts paid in settlement (if the settlement is approved in advance by the Company) actually and reasonably incurred by Indemnitee in connection with a Proceeding (other than a Proceeding by or in the right of the Company) if the Indemnitee acted in good faith and in a manner the Indemnitee reasonably believed to be in the best interests of the Company, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe Indemnitee's conduct was unlawful. The termination of any Proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction, or upon a plea of nolle prosequi does not, of itself, create a presumption that the Indemnitee did not act in good faith and in a manner which the Indemnitee reasonably believed to be in the best interests of the Company, or, with respect to any criminal Proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe that the Indemnitee's conduct was unlawful.
 
(b) Proceedings by or in the Right of the Company. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the Company shall indemnify the Indemnitee against Expenses and amounts paid in settlement, actually and reasonably incurred by the Indemnitee in connection with a Proceeding by or in the right of the Company to procure a judgment in its favor if the Indemnitee acted in good faith and in a manner the Indemnitee reasonably believed to be in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no indemnification shall be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which the Indemnitee shall have been adjudged liable to the Company in the performance of the Indemnitee's duty to the Company and its shareholders unless and only to the extent that the court in which such action or Proceeding is or was pending shall determine upon application that, in view of all the circumstances of the case, the Indemnitee is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for Expenses and then only to the extent that the court shall determine.
 
 
2

 
 
(c) Scope. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement but subject to Section 14(b), the Company shall indemnify the Indemnitee to the fullest extent permitted by law, notwithstanding the extent to which such indemnification may not be specifically authorized by other provisions of this Agreement or the Company's articles of incorporation or bylaws.
 
4. Limitations on Indemnification. Any other provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Company shall not be obligated pursuant to the terms of this Agreement:
 
 (a) Excluded Acts. To indemnify the Indemnitee for any acts or omissions or transactions from which a director or officer may not be relieved of liability under applicable law;
 
(b) Excluded Indemnification Payments. To indemnify or advance Expenses in violation of any prohibition or limitation on indemnification under the statutes, regulations or rules promulgated by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or any other state or federal regulatory agency having jurisdiction over the Company;
 
(c) Claims Initiated by Indemnitee. To indemnify or advance Expenses to the Indemnitee with respect to Proceedings or claims initiated or brought voluntarily by the Indemnitee and not by way of defense, except with respect to Proceedings brought to establish or enforce a right to indemnification under this Agreement or any other statute or law, but such indemnification or advancement of Expenses may be provided by the Company in specific cases if the Board of Directors has approved the initiation or bringing of such suit;
 
(d) Lack of Good Faith. To indemnify the Indemnitee for any Expenses incurred by the Indemnitee with respect to any Proceeding instituted by the Indemnitee to enforce or interpret this Agreement, if a court of competent jurisdiction determines that each of the material assertions made by the Indemnitee in such Proceeding was not made in good faith or was frivolous;
 
(e) Insured Claims. To indemnify the Indemnitee for Expenses or liabilities of any type whatsoever (including, but not limited to, judgments, fines, Employee Retirement Income Security Act excise taxes or penalties, and amounts paid in settlement) which have been paid directly to or on behalf of the Indemnitee by an insurance carrier under a policy of directors’ and officers’ liability insurance maintained by the Company or any other policy of insurance maintained by the Company or the Indemnitee; or
 
(f) Claims Under Section 16(b) of the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934. To indemnify the Indemnitee for Expenses and the payment of profits arising from the purchase and sale by the Indemnitee of securities in violation of Section 16(b) of the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or any similar successor statute.
 
5. Determination of Right to Indemnification. Upon receipt of a written claim addressed to the Board of Directors for indemnification pursuant to Section 3, the Company shall determine whether the Indemnitee has met the applicable standards of conduct which makes it permissible under applicable law to indemnify the Indemnitee. If a claim under Section 3 is not paid in full by the Company within one hundred and twenty (120) days after such written claim has been received by the Company, the Indemnitee may at any time thereafter bring suit against the Company to recover the unpaid amount of the claim and, unless such action is dismissed by the court as frivolous or brought in bad faith, the Indemnitee shall be entitled to be paid also the expense of prosecuting such claim. The court in which such action is brought shall determine whether the Indemnitee or the Company shall have the burden of proof concerning whether the Indemnitee has or has not met the applicable standard of conduct.

6. Advancement and Repayment of Expenses. Subject to Section 4 hereof, the Expenses incurred by Indemnitee in defending and investigating any Proceeding shall be paid by the Company in advance of the final disposition of such Proceeding within 30 days after receiving from the Indemnitee the copies of invoices presented to the Indemnitee for such Expenses, if the Indemnitee shall provide an undertaking to the Company to repay such amount to the extent it is ultimately determined that the Indemnitee is not entitled to indemnification in accordance with the Law (or other applicable statute). In determining whether or not to make an advance hereunder, the ability of the Indemnitee to repay shall not be a factor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in a proceeding brought by the Company directly, in its own right (as distinguished from an action bought derivatively or by any receiver or trustee), the Company shall not be required to make the advances called for hereby if the Board of Directors determines, in its sole discretion, that it does not appear that the Indemnitee has met the standards of conduct which make it permissible under applicable law to indemnify the Indemnitee and the advancement of Expenses would not be in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.
 
7. Partial Indemnification. If the Indemnitee is entitled under any provision of this Agreement to indemnification or advancement by the Company of some or a portion of any Expenses or liabilities of any type whatsoever (including, but not limited to, judgments, fines, penalties, and amounts paid in settlement) incurred by him or her in the investigation, defense, settlement or appeal of a Proceeding, but is not entitled to indemnification or advancement of the total amount thereof, the Company shall nevertheless indemnify or pay advancements to the Indemnitee for the portion of such Expenses or liabilities to which the Indemnitee is entitled.
 
8. Notice to Company by Indemnitee. The Indemnitee shall notify the Company in writing of any matter with respect to which the Indemnitee intends to seek indemnification hereunder as soon as reasonably practicable following the receipt by the Indemnitee of written notice thereof; provided, however, that any delay in so notifying the Company shall not constitute a waiver by the Indemnitee of his or her rights hereunder. The written notification to the Company shall be addressed to the Board of Directors and shall include a description of the nature of the Proceeding and the facts underlying the Proceeding and be accompanied by copies of any documents filed with the court in which the Proceeding is pending. In addition, the Indemnitee shall give the Company such information and cooperation as it may reasonably require and as shall be within the Indemnitee’s power.
 
9. Maintenance of Liability Insurance.
 
(a) Subject to Section 4 hereof, the Company hereby agrees that so long as the Indemnitee shall continue to serve as a director or officer of the Company and thereafter so long as the Indemnitee shall be subject to any possible Proceeding, the Company, subject to Section 9(B), shall use reasonable commercial efforts to obtain and maintain in full force and effect directors’ and officers’ liability insurance (“D&O Insurance”) which provides the Indemnitee the same rights and benefits as are accorded to the most favorably insured of the Company’s officers or directors.
 
(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall have no obligation to obtain or maintain D&O Insurance if the Company determines in good faith that such insurance is not reasonably available, the premium costs for such insurance are disproportionate to the amount of coverage provided, the coverage provided by such insurance is limited by exclusions so as to provide an insufficient benefit, or the Indemnitee is covered by similar insurance maintained by a subsidiary or parent of the Company.
 
(c) If, at the time of the receipt of a notice of a claim pursuant to Section 8 hereof, the Company has D&O Insurance in effect, the Company shall give prompt notice of the commencement of such Proceeding to the insurers in accordance with the procedures set forth in the respective policies. The Company shall thereafter take all necessary or desirable action to cause such insurers to pay, on behalf of the Indemnitee, all amounts payable as a result of such Proceeding in accordance with the terms of such policies.

10. Defense of Claim. In the event that the Company shall be obligated under Section 6 hereof to pay the Expenses of any Proceeding against the Indemnitee, the Company, if appropriate, shall be entitled to assume the defense of such Proceeding, with counsel approved by the Indemnitee, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, upon the delivery to Indemnitee of written notice of its election to do so. After delivery of such notice, approval of such counsel by the Indemnitee and the retention of such counsel by the Company, the Company will not be liable to the Indemnitee under this Agreement for any fees of counsel subsequently incurred by the Indemnitee with respect to the same Proceeding, provided that (i) the Indemnitee shall have the right to employ counsel in any such Proceeding at Indemnitee’s expense; and (ii) if (A) the employment of counsel by the Indemnitee has been previously authorized by the Company, or (B) the Indemnitee shall have reasonably concluded that there may be a conflict of interest between the Company and the Indemnitee in the conduct of such defense or (C) the Company shall not, in fact, have employed counsel to assume the defense of such Proceeding, then the fees and expenses of the Indemnitee’s counsel shall be at the expense of the Company.
 
11. Attorneys' Fees. In the event that the Indemnitee or the Company institutes an action to enforce or interpret any terms of this Agreement, the Company shall reimburse the Indemnitee for all of the Indemnitee’s reasonable fees and expenses in bringing and pursuing such action or defense, unless as part of such action or defense, a court of competent jurisdiction determines that the material assertions made by the Indemnitee as a basis for such action or defense were not made in good faith or were frivolous.
 
12. Continuation of Obligations. All agreements and obligations of the Company contained herein shall continue during the period the Indemnitee is a director or officer of the Company, or is or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, fiduciary, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, and shall continue thereafter so long as the Indemnitee shall be subject to any possible proceeding by reason of the fact that the Indemnitee served in any capacity referred to herein.
 
13. Successors and Assigns. This Agreement establishes contract rights that shall be binding upon, and shall inure to the benefit of, the successors, assigns, heirs and legal representatives of the parties hereto.
 
14. Non-Exclusivity.
 
(a) The provisions for indemnification and advancement of expenses set forth in this Agreement shall not be deemed to be exclusive of any other rights that the Indemnitee may have under any provision of law, the Company’s articles of incorporation or bylaws, the vote of the Company’s shareholders or disinterested directors, other agreements or otherwise, both as to action in the Indemnittee’s official capacity and action in another capacity while occupying the Indemnitee’s position as a director or officer of the Company.
 
(b) In the event of any changes, after the date of this Agreement, in any applicable law, statute, or rule which expand the right of a corporation incorporated or organized in Pennsylvania or other applicable jurisdiction to indemnify its officers and directors, the Indemnitee’s rights and the Company’s obligations under this Agreement shall be expanded to the full extent permitted by such changes. In the event of any changes in any applicable law, statute or rule, which narrow the right of a corporation incorporated or organized in Pennsylvania or other applicable jurisdiction to indemnify a director or officer, such changes, to the extent not otherwise required by such law, statute or rule to be applied to this Agreement, shall have no effect on this Agreement or the parties’ rights and obligations hereunder.
 
15. Effectiveness of Agreement. To the extent that the indemnification permitted under the terms of certain provisions of this Agreement exceeds the scope of the indemnification provided for in the Law or other applicable statute, such provisions shall not be effective. In all other respects, the balance of this Agreement shall be effective as of the date set forth on the first page and may apply to acts of omissions of the Indemnitee which occurred prior to such date if the Indemnitee was an officer, director, employee or other agent of the Company, or was serving at the request of the Company as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, at the time such act or omission occurred.

16. Severability. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to require or shall be construed as requiring the Company to do or fail to do any act in violation of applicable law. The Company’s inability, pursuant to court order, to perform its obligations under this Agreement shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement. The provisions of this Agreement shall be severable as provided in this Section 16.

17. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the laws of Pennsylvania, without reference to its conflict of law principals.

The Indemnitee understands and acknowledges that the Company has undertaken or may be required in the future to undertake with the Securities and Exchange Commission to submit the question of indemnification to a court in certain circumstances for a determination of the Company’s right under public policy to indemnify the Indemnitee.
