Alfred C. Liggins, III, Radio One's CEO and President stated, "The third quarter again highlights the importance of consolidating TV One into our results: radio was relatively flat, however, our TV and Internet divisions both showed good revenue progression from prior year, and provide a sound diversification strategy. We have made some changes in certain radio markets designed to improve long term performance: in Houston we are launching News 92 FM; in Columbus, we switched from gospel to the Jack format; in Detroit we signed a local marketing agreement for 107.5 WGPR; and, in Philadelphia, we moved our adult urban format to our hip-hop signal, and vice versa. I am confident that these strategic changes will reap rewards in the long-term."

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements represent management's current expectations and are based upon information available to Radio One at the time of this release. These forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond Radio One's control, that may cause the actual results to differ materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.  Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are described in Radio One's reports on Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Radio One does not undertake any duty to update any forward-looking statements.

Net revenue increased to approximately $104.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, from approximately $74.4 million for the same period in 2010, an increase of 40.3%. We began to consolidate the results of TV One during the second quarter of 2011 and recognized approximately $29.5 million of revenue from our new cable television segment during the three months ended September 30, 2011. The radio markets that we operate in grew 1.7% for the quarter and 2.5% year to date, led primarily by growth in digital revenues, while national revenue and local revenue in our radio markets were relatively flat for the quarter.  Our radio stations' net revenues increased 0.3% with the most significant increases noted in our Atlanta, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Raleigh and St. Louis clusters, while our Columbus, Dallas, Indianapolis and Washington D.C. markets experienced the most significant declines. Total core radio revenue (radio stations and syndicated programs excluding Reach Media) improved 1.4% during the quarter. While Reach Media's revenue declined 4.7% in the quarter, this decline was an improvement from the decline experienced during the second quarter of 2011. Net revenue for our internet segment improved 11.5% for the three months ended September 30, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010.

Operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation, increased to approximately $79.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, up 53.3% from the approximately $51.6 million incurred for the comparable quarter in 2010. Most of the increase is a result of the TV One consolidation specifically related to programming and technical operating expenses.  For our cable television segment, programming and technical expenses include expenses associated with the technical, programming, production, and content management. Approximately $13.7 million of our consolidated programming and technical operating expenses were incurred by TV One, with approximately $11.2 million of this amount relating specifically to content amortization. Excluding the impact of consolidating TV One results, our programming and technical expenses would have increased by 1.6% for the quarter compared to the same period in 2010.

Stock-based compensation decreased to $759,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, compared to $908,000 for the same period in 2010. This decrease in stock-based compensation expense is due to one-time accelerated vesting that occurred in 2010 associated with the long-term incentive plan whereby officers and certain key employees were granted a total of 3,250,000 shares of restricted stock in January of 2010.

Depreciation and amortization expense increased to approximately $11.5 million compared to approximately $4.6 million for the quarters ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, an increase of 150.0%. Additional depreciation and amortization expense of approximately $7.8 million resulted from the fixed and intangible assets recorded as part of the consolidation of TV One.  This increased expense was partially offset by the completion of amortization for certain intangible assets and the completion of depreciation and amortization for certain assets.

Interest expense increased to approximately $23.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, from approximately $12.1 million for the same period in 2010, an increase of 90.1%. The increase in interest expense was due to higher interest rates associated with the 2011 Credit Agreement, Amended Exchange Offer and TV One Notes, which were in effect for the three months ended September 30, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010.  The overall effective rate of borrowing for the three months ended September 30, 2011 increased approximately 4.0% compared to the three months ended September 30, 2010.  Approximately $3.0 million of the increased interest expense relates to the debt recorded as part of the consolidation of TV One.

Equity in income of affiliated company decreased to $0 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, compared to approximately $1.8 million for the same period in 2010, a decrease of 100.0%. Equity in income of affiliated company primarily reflects our estimated equity in the net income of TV One. The decrease to equity in income of affiliated company for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was due to the consolidation of TV One during the prior quarter.  Previously, the Company's share of the net income was driven by TV One's current capital structure and the Company's percentage ownership of the equity securities of TV One.

The benefit from income taxes for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 was approximately $2.3 million compared to a provision for income taxes of approximately $4.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. Substantially all of the decrease in income taxes relates to the deferred tax liability for TV One.  The consolidated effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 was 23.9% and 68.3%, respectively.

Income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax, includes the results of operations for our sold radio stations and Giant Magazine, which ceased publication in December 2009. The income from discontinued operations, net of tax, for the three months ended September 30, 2011 resulted from the remaining Boston radio station entering into an LMA in June 2011. The loss from discontinued operations, net of tax, for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 of $158,000 resulted primarily from legal and litigation expenses incurred as a result of ongoing legal activity related to certain previously sold stations. The income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax, includes no tax provision for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010.

The increase in noncontrolling interests in income of subsidiaries is due primarily to the impact of consolidating TV One results for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  This amount is partially offset by lower net income generated by Reach Media for the three months ended September 30, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010.

Other pertinent financial information includes capital expenditures of approximately $1.8 million and $1.5 million for the quarters ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. In addition, as of September 30, 2011, Radio One had total debt (net of cash balances) of approximately $770.5 million.

Supplemental Financial Information:

For comparative purposes, the following more detailed and unaudited statements of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 are included.  These detailed, unaudited and adjusted statements of operations include certain reclassifications associated with accounting for discontinued operations.  These reclassifications had no effect on previously reported net income or loss, or any other previously reported statements of operations, balance sheet or cash flow amounts.

Notes:

1 "Station operating income" consists of net loss before depreciation and amortization, corporate expenses, stock-based compensation, equity in income of affiliated company, 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, (income) loss from discontinued operations, net of tax, interest income and gain on purchase of affiliated company. Station operating income is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles. Nevertheless we believe station operating income is often a useful measure of a broadcasting company's operating performance and is a significant basis used by our management to measure the operating performance of our stations within the various markets because station 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. Station operating income is frequently used as one of the bases for comparing businesses in our industry, although our measure of station operating income may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Station 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 loss to station operating income has been provided in this release. Station operating income includes results from all three of our operating segments (radio broadcasting, internet and cable television).

2 Certain reclassifications associated with accounting for discontinued operations have been made to prior period balances to conform to the current presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on any other previously reported or consolidated net income or loss or any other statement of operations, balance sheet or cash flow amounts. Where applicable, these financial statements have been identified as "as adjusted."  

3 For the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, Radio One had 50,270,550 and 52,064,108 shares of common stock outstanding on a weighted average basis (basic), and 50,270,550 and 54,262,885 shares of common stock outstanding on a weighted average basis (fully diluted) for outstanding stock options, respectively.

4 For the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, Radio One had 51,072,480 and 51,316,498 shares of common stock outstanding on a weighted average basis basic, and 52,943,536 and 51,316,498 shares of common stock outstanding on a weighted average basis (fully diluted) for outstanding stock options, respectively.

5 "Adjusted EBITDA" consists of net loss plus (1) depreciation, amortization, income taxes, interest expense, noncontrolling interest in income of subsidiaries, impairment of long-lived assets, stock-based compensation, loss on retirement of debt, loss from discontinued operations, net of tax, less (2) equity in income of affiliated company, other income, interest income and gain on purchase of affiliated company. 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. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is often a useful measure of a company's operating performance and is a significant basis used by our management to measure 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, as well as our equity in (income) loss of our affiliated company, gain on retirements of debt, and any discontinued operations. 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, capital structure or the results of our affiliated company. Adjusted EBITDA is frequently used as one of the bases for comparing businesses in our industry, although our measure of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. 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 loss to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA has been provided in this release.
