URBAN ONE, INC. REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS

Washington, DC: - Urban One, Inc. (NASDAQ: UONEK and UONE) today reported its results for the quarter ended December 31, 2017.  Net revenue was approximately $109.0 million, a decrease of 4.0% from the same period in 2016. Broadcast and digital operating income1 was approximately $44.3 million, an increase of 2.8% from the same period in 2016. The Company reported operating income of approximately $20.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017, compared to $17.1 million for the same period in 2016. Net income was approximately $121.3 million or $2.63 per share (basic) compared to net loss of approximately $3.4 million or $0.07 per share (basic) for the same period in 2016. Adjusted EBITDA2 was approximately $38.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017, compared to $30.9 million for the same period in 2016, an increase of 25.6%.

Alfred C. Liggins, III, Urban One's CEO and President stated, "Overall, we produced a strong quarter from an Adjusted EBITDA standpoint, and as a result we were able to show full year Adjusted EBITDA growth, despite the challenging market conditions. Our core radio revenues were up slightly for the quarter, excluding the impact of political revenues. Our TV advertising revenues suffered from weak ratings delivery, which was somewhat offset by growth in affiliate revenues. Our digital business benefitted from the integration of our acquisition of the Bossip, Madame Noire and Hip Hop Wired brands, and was up significantly in both revenue and Adjusted EBITDA compared to prior year. We were able to control costs, most notably at TV One and Corporate. During the quarter, we repurchased a further $20 million of our 9.25% notes at a discount, and we remain strongly committed to reducing net leverage."

Net revenue decreased to approximately $109.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, from approximately $113.6 million for the same period in 2016, a decrease of 4.0%. Net revenues from our radio broadcasting segment decreased 7.5% compared to the same period in 2016. We experienced net revenue growth most significantly in our Houston and Richmond markets with revenue declines most significantly in our Charlotte, Cincinnati, Columbus, Detroit, Indianapolis, Raleigh and St. Louis. We recognized approximately $45.2 million of revenue from our cable television segment during the quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to approximately $48.0 million for the same period in 2016, with the decrease primarily from lower advertising sales.  Net revenue from our Reach Media segment decreased approximately $1.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to the same period in 2016 due primarily to weaker demand. Finally, net revenues for our digital segment increased approximately $3.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to the same period in 2016, primarily from performance from our new digital acquisition.

Operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation and impairment of long-lived assets, decreased to approximately $77.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, down 9.7% from the approximately $85.6 million incurred for the comparable quarter in 2016. The operating expense decrease was primarily driven by a combined decrease of approximately $2.6 million of corporate selling, general and administrative expenses across all of our segments, as well as a decrease of programming and technical expenses at our cable television segment.  Our cable broadcasting segment generated a decrease in programming and technical expenses of approximately $8.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to the same period in 2016, due primarily to lower program content expense driven by reduced amortization for original programing.

Depreciation and amortization expense decreased 0.7% for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, primarily due to completion of useful lives of assets.

Interest expense decreased to approximately $19.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to approximately $20.1 million for the same period in 2016. The Company made cash interest payments of approximately $18.9 million on its outstanding debt for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to cash interest payments of approximately $18.0 million on all outstanding instruments for the quarter ended December 31, 2016. On April 18, 2017, the Company closed on a new senior secured credit facility (the "2017 Credit Facility"). The proceeds from the 2017 Credit Facility were used to prepay in full the Company's previously existing senior secured credit facility and the agreement governing such credit facility was terminated on April 18, 2017.

The gain on retirement of debt of approximately $1.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, was due to the redemption of approximately $20 million of our 2020 Notes at a discount.

The impairment of long-lived assets for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, was related to a non-cash impairment charge of approximately $1.3 million associated with of our Columbus market radio broadcasting licenses.
 
For the quarter ended December 31, 2017, we recorded a benefit from income taxes of approximately $117.2 million primarily attributable to the reduction of the deferred tax liability due to the federal tax rate change from 35% to 21%, and other tax impacts due to the 2017 Tax Cut and Jobs Act. The provision for income taxes for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 of approximately $1.3 million was primarily attributable to the deferred tax liability for indefinite-lived intangible assets, based on a discrete tax provision. The Company received a net tax refund of $89,000 and $21,000 for the quarters ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.
 
On December 22, 2017, U.S. Federal tax reform was enacted with the signing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, or the TCJA. Notable provisions of the TCJA include significant changes to corporate taxation, including reduction of the corporate tax rate from a top marginal rate of 35% to a flat rate of 21%, limitation of the tax deduction for interest expense to 30% of adjusted earnings (except for certain small businesses), limitation of the deduction for net operating losses to 80% of current year taxable income and elimination of net operating loss carrybacks, immediate deductions for certain new investments instead of deductions for depreciation expense over time, and modifying or repealing many business deductions and credits. 
 
The SEC issued a Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 ("SAB 118"), which allows a provisional estimate when a registrant does not have the necessary information available, prepared, or analyzed in reasonable detail to complete the accounting for certain income tax effects of the Act. SAB 118 allows for adjustments to provisional amounts during a measurement period of up to one year. In accordance with SAB 118, the Company has made reasonable estimates related to the remeasurement of deferred tax balances and other deferred tax adjustments based on provisions of the Act.
 
The Company is continuing to evaluate how the provisions of the Act will be accounted for under ASC 740, "Income Taxes". The analysis is provisional and is subject to change due to the additional time required to accurately calculate and review the complex tax law. The Company will assess any regulatory guidance that may be issued which could have an impact on the provisional estimates. The Company will continue to gather information and perform additional analysis on these estimates, including, but not limited to, remeasurement of deferred taxes and other deferred tax adjustments until the filing of its associated federal and state income tax returns. Any measurement period adjustments will be reported as a component of provision for incomes taxes in the reporting period the amounts are determined.

Other income, net increased to approximately $1.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017, compared to $852,000 for the same period in 2016. The primary driver of the increase in other income was from our investment in MGM.

Other pertinent financial information includes capital expenditures of approximately $2.9 million and $1.1 million for the quarters ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Along with the results of Interactive One, all digital components from our reportable segments are now a part of a newly formed reportable segment called "Digital". This new reportable segment better reflects the manner in which we manage our business and better reflects our operational structure.

Notes:
 
1 "Broadcast and digital operating income" consists of net (loss) income before depreciation and amortization, corporate selling, general and administrative expenses, stock-based compensation, income taxes, noncontrolling interest in income (loss) of subsidiaries, interest expense, impairment of long-lived assets, other (income) expense, loss (gain) on retirement of debt, gain on sale-leaseback and interest income. Broadcast and digital operating income is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles. Nevertheless, broadcast and digital operating income is a significant measure used by our management to evaluate the operating performance of our core operating segments because broadcast and digital operating income provides helpful information about our results of operations apart from expenses associated with our fixed assets and long-lived intangible assets, income taxes, investments, debt financings and retirements, overhead, stock-based compensation, impairment charges, and asset sales. Our measure of broadcast and digital operating income is similar to industry use of station operating income; however, it reflects our more diverse business and therefore is not completely analogous to "station operating income" or other similarly titled measures used by other companies. Broadcast and digital operating income does not purport to represent operating income or cash flow from operating activities, as those terms are defined under generally accepted accounting principles, and should not be considered as an alternative to those measurements as an indicator of our performance. A reconciliation of net income (loss) to broadcast and digital operating income has been provided in this release.

2 "Adjusted EBITDA" consists of net loss plus (1) depreciation, amortization, income taxes, interest expense, noncontrolling interest in (loss) income of subsidiaries, impairment of long-lived assets, stock-based compensation, (gain) loss on retirement of debt, gain on sale-leaseback , Employment Agreement and incentive plan award expenses and other compensation, severance-related costs, cost investment income, less (2) other income and interest income. Net income before interest income, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization is commonly referred to in our business as "EBITDA." Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles. However, we believe Adjusted EBITDA is often a useful measure of a company's operating performance and is a significant measure used by our management to evaluate the operating performance of our business because Adjusted EBITDA excludes charges for depreciation, amortization and interest expense that have resulted from our acquisitions and debt financing, our taxes, impairment charges, and gain on retirements of debt. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information about the operating performance of our business, apart from the expenses associated with our fixed assets and long-lived intangible assets or capital structure. EBITDA is frequently used as one of the measures for comparing businesses in the broadcasting industry, although our measure of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, including, but not limited to the fact that our definition includes the results of all four segments (radio broadcasting, Reach Media, digital and cable television).  Adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA do not purport to represent operating income or cash flow from operating activities, as those terms are defined under generally accepted accounting principles, and should not be considered as alternatives to those measurements as an indicator of our performance. A reconciliation of net income (loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA has been provided in this release.
