Alfred C. Liggins, III, Radio One’s CEO and President stated, “Our radio business showed sequential improvement from the third quarter, with revenues -2.8%. During the quarter we changed format from news to classic hip-hop in our Houston market; excluding Houston our radio revenues for the fourth quarter were +1.1%. Adjusting for a timing difference of our Women’s Empowerment event in Raleigh, Q1 2015 core radio revenues are currently pacing –1.8%, having weakened throughout January. Our Washington DC cluster continues to underperform the market, and we recently announced a new General Manager of the Washington DC market cluster by expanding the responsibilities of our own Jeff Wilson, Senior Regional Vice President. Excluding our Washington DC cluster, our core radio revenues are currently pacing up about 1% compared to the same time last year. Our cable television business delivered 48.8% adjusted EBITDA2 growth in the fourth quarter, which helped drive consolidated adjusted EBITDA up by 18.8% for the quarter. TV One revenue and Interactive One direct revenue are both currently pacing up double digits for the first quarter. I am pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with Comcast Programming Ventures V, LLC to acquire their approximately 47.5% interest in TV One, LLC based on an enterprise value of $550 million. We have until June 30th, 2015 to finance and close on the transaction, after which either party can terminate.”
