RADIO ONE, INC. REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS
Washington, DC: - Radio One, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROIAK and ROIA) today reported its results for the quarter ended December 31, 2011. Giving effect to the consolidation of TV One, net revenue was approximately $98.1 million, an increase of 37.8% from the same period in 2010. Also giving effect to the consolidation of TV One, station operating income1 was approximately $35.3 million, an increase of 25.6% from the same period in 2010. The Company recorded a non-cash impairment charge against its goodwill and other intangible assets of approximately $22.3 million, which led to a net operating loss of approximately $9.0 million. Net loss was approximately $19.1 million or a loss of $0.38 per share, a decrease from the reported net loss of approximately $27.2 million or $0.52 per share for the same period in 2010.
Alfred C. Liggins, III, Radio One’s CEO and President stated, “Our fourth quarter radio revenue was impacted by a combination of tough political comps, non-recurring national accounts and certain format changes that we effected during the quarter. Normalizing for political and issue money, our underlying core radio revenue was down approximately 4.2%. While this is disappointing, I believe our radio group is poised to rebound strongly in 2012, with mid to high single digit revenue growth in both the first and second quarters. TV One continues its strong performance with fourth quarter revenue growth of 8.7% and EBITDA growth of approximately 102% compared to fourth quarter 2010. We expect TV One’s full year EBITDA to increase to approximately $40 million for 2012. Before intercompany management charges, our internet business generated positive adjusted EBITDA2 for the second sequential quarter, and we expect that division to be cash-flow positive for 2012.”
