MGT Chairman and CEO Buys 250,000 MGT shares
Date:10/8/2007

NEW YORK, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MGT Capital Investments, Inc. (Amex: MGT), a holding company focused on the Healthcare Information Technology ("HCIT") sector, today announced that the Company's Chairman and CEO, Tim Paterson-Brown, has acquired 250,000 shares of MGT common stock from an existing shareholder in a single private transaction at $3.75 per share, for $937,500.

Tim Paterson-Brown, Chairman and CEO, stated, "It has been my belief for some time now that the value of MGT's current holdings in its subsidiaries is not accurately reflected in the current share price. Consequently, I have chosen to increase my personal investment in MGT over the past two years in an effort to take advantage of this valuation gap."

"In addition, I believe that our Medicsight subsidiary has tremendous potential for future growth. We recently announced the positive results of the ACRIN Study, endorsing the use of virtual colonoscopy, and we believe that as a result of this study, Medicsight's virtual colonoscopy technology will see increased future demand."
