Cumulus Reports Operating Results for Second Quarter 2014
August 6, 2014

Cumulus Media Inc. today announced operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

On an actual basis, net revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014 increased $57.9 million, or 21.4%, to $328.2 million, compared to $270.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. The increase resulted from increases of $44.1 million, $7.0 million, $2.7 million and $4.1 million in broadcast advertising, digital advertising, political advertising and license fees and other revenue, respectively. These increases were primarily attributable to the addition of the operations of WestwoodOne, which was acquired by the Company in December 2013. The increases were partially offset by decreases in local spot and national spot revenue. The increase in political advertising was due to additional activity associated with mid-term and gubernatorial elections in the current period.

On an actual basis, content costs for the three months ended June 30, 2014 increased $39.5 million, or 63.5%, to $101.8 million, compared to $62.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. This increase was primarily attributable to the addition of the operations of WestwoodOne. Content costs in the prior period were reduced by credits related to music publishing royalty reductions that amplify the period over period comparison.

On an actual basis, other direct operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2014 increased $18.5 million, or 18.5%, to $118.4 million, compared to $99.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. This increase was primarily attributable to the addition of approximately $14.2 million in expenses related to the operations of WestwoodOne and increases of $1.9 million in employee benefits across our broadcast platform, as well as $2.4 million of expenses related to the LMA in the Chicago market.
