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, 2019. Net revenue was approximately $105.9 million, a decrease of 6.8% from the same period in 2018. Broadcast and digital operating income1 was approximately $34.3 million, a decrease of approximately $10.3 million from the same period in 2018. The Company reported operating income of approximately $12.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to approximately $9.4 million for the same period in 2018. Net loss was approximately $7.9 million or $0.18 per share (basic) compared to net income of approximately $116.9 million or $2.62 per share (basic) for the same period in 2018. Adjusted EBITDA2 was approximately $27.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, compared to approximately $35.3 million for the same period in 2018.

Alfred C. Liggins, III, Urban One's CEO and President stated, "Our Adjusted EBITDA for the year of approximately $133.5 million was adversely impacted by the re-classification of operating lease expenses out of interest expense as previously reported through Q3, absent which accounting reclassification we would have been above the mid-point of our guidance. Our same station radio revenue excluding political advertising was -2.9%, which was in line with our previously reported low-single digit decline in core pacings. With tough political comps (-83.5%) this made for a difficult quarter, but in line with expectations. The first quarter of 2020 started brightly, with both January and February radio division revenues ahead of prior year, and strong political revenues. The Covid-19 outbreak has reversed that growth, with cancellations from clients whose businesses revolve around events, travel, leisure and entertainment. On a same station basis our radio division is currently pacing up mid-single digits including political, and down low single digits excluding political revenue. As a result of the pandemic, we have postponed our annual Tom Joyner's Fantastic Voyage cruise, which will impact our Q2 revenue and EBITDA, and we are monitoring all of our larger public events with a view towards mitigating risk and keeping our employees, clients and listeners safe."
