NTN Buzztime, Inc. Announces Fourth-Quarter
and Full-Year 2008 Results
 
CARLSBAD, Calif., March 19/PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — NTN Buzztime, Inc. (NYSE Alternext US: NTN) today announced results for the fourth quarter and 2008 fiscal year ended December 31, 2008.

“In a very busy fourth quarter, NTN Buzztime has begun laying the groundwork to return to profitability in 2009 and to become more of an integrated media company that attracts growing audiences to the iTV Buzztime Network. It is very exciting to have been chosen the Company’s CEO to help lead this transformation,” commented NTN Buzztime Board member and CEO Terry Bateman.  “With our sales showing considerable resilience in the face of once-in-a-generation economic uncertainties, we have cut our net loss by more than half, improved our gross margins and made fundamental improvements to our cost structure that should reduce our selling, general and administrative expenses by $5 million in 2009. These changes were essential and will give the company the runway to fully develop the integrated media business that we envision, which will include a heavy focus on developing our ad program and the development of our online and mobile channels for launch in the second half of 2009.”

Mr. Bateman continued, “We have also restructured our Board of Directors and made significant enhancements to our management team.  New-media executive and investor Jeff Berg is bringing timely and focused expertise to his responsibilities as Chairman.  Mary Beth Lewis, with her CFO and growth company experience, and Kenneth Keymer, with his impressive chain-restaurant management credentials, further enhance the strategic depth that the Board provides to management.  On the management side, Michael Arzt, our new Executive Vice President of Marketing, and Jeffrey Lewis, our new Executive Vice President of Advertising Sales, both have the solid backgrounds, expertise and commitment necessary to contribute to making Buzztime a powerful out-of-home advertising network.”

Results for the Fourth Quarter Ended December 31, 2008
Revenues decreased by $1.2 million or 15% to $6.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2008, compared to revenues of $7.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2007.  The Company’s site count was 3,746 as of the end of 2008, consistent with the site count as of September 30, 2008.  Loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2008 was $690,000, a reduction of approximately $844,000 or 55% from the loss from continuing operations of $1.5 million recorded for the fourth quarter of 2007.

Gross margin as a percentage of revenue improved to 75% for the fourth quarter of 2008 compared to approximately 70% for the fourth quarter of 2007.
