August 5, 2014
Untitled Document
Radio One, Inc. today reported its results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.  Net revenue was approximately $108.4 million, a decrease of 9.4% from the same period in 2013, resulting primarily from a timing difference of Reach Media's annual cruise event.  Station operating income1 was approximately $41.0 million, a decrease of 10.0% from the same period in 2013. The Company reported operating income of approximately $22.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014, compared to operating income of $18.3 million for the same period in 2013. Net loss was approximately $10.8 million or $0.23 per share compared to $14.2 million or $0.29 per share, for the same period in 2013.

Alfred C. Liggins, III, Radio One's CEO and President stated, "Our radio division experienced a combination of general market-softness and specific competitive issues. In the markets in which we operate, advertising revenues were down by 3.8% for the quarter compared to our core radio performance of –4.1%.  Part of that decline resulted from the impact of a new competitor in Houston, which has adversely impacted our ratings in that market. Excluding Houston, we outperformed our markets by approximately 210 bps. Third quarter radio revenue pacings are currently negative mid to high single digits, and, while we expect some lift from political advertising, I anticipate that Q3 radio revenues will be down low to mid-single digits. Cable TV revenues were relatively flat for the quarter, and we remain focused on the successful renewal of our carriage agreements."
