Washington, DC: - Radio One, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROIAK and ROIA) today reported its results for the quarter ended December 31, 2010.  Net revenue was approximately $71.2 million, an increase of 5.8% from the same period in 2009.  Station operating income1 was approximately $28.0 million, an increase of 6.5% from the same period in 2009. The Company recorded a non-cash impairment charge against its FCC licenses and goodwill of approximately $36.1 million, which led to a net operating loss of approximately $19.8 million. Net loss was approximately $27.2 million or a loss of $0.52 per share, an increase from the reported net loss of approximately $14.9 million or $0.28 per share for the same period in 2009.
Alfred C. Liggins, III, Radio One’s CEO and President stated, “Overall core radio revenues were up 8.1% in the fourth quarter compared to last year led by national business, which was up 19.3%, and radio segment internet revenue, which was up 179.1%. Our internet business revenues were down 8.0% this quarter compared to the fourth quarter of 2009 but were up 14.1% for the full year; and we continue to believe that our on-line platform will be a major source of revenue and EBITDA growth for the future.  Q1 2011 has started sluggishly, with radio station revenue currently pacing flat to up low single-digits on a combined basis.  Normalizing for a timing difference for Reach Media’s cruise, consolidated net revenue and EBITDA are expected to be approximately flat year over year.
During the fourth quarter 2010, the Company completed the Amended Exchange Offer relating to all its Senior Subordinated Notes due 2011and 2013.  In addition, the amendment to our senior secured credit facility became effective which cured all prior defaults that were triggered in each of the second and third quarters under the terms of our credit facility.
Our investment in TV One continues to perform strongly.  TV One had Q4 net revenues of $28.7 million (+17.1% vs Q4 2009) and EBITDA of $5.9 million after valuation expenses of $2.0 million (+12.5% vs Q4 2009).  On February 25, 2011, TV One completed a private debt offering of $119 million. This five year financing at a 10% interest rate was obtained from funds managed by Canyon Capital Advisors LLC and was structured to allow for continued distributions to TV One shareholders.  $82.4 million of the proceeds of this financing were used by TV One to repurchase 15.4% of its outstanding membership interests from certain financial investors and 2.0% of its outstanding membership interests held by TV One management (representing approximately 50% of interests held by management).  These redemptions increased Radio One's holding in TV One from 36.8% to approximately 44.6%. TV One plans to use the balance of the Canyon funding to repurchase DirecTV's 12.4% interest in the Network.
Even though the marketplace continues to evolve and present new challenges, I am confident that Radio One is well positioned to sustain its operational and industry progress.”
