Hollywood Media Corp. Reports 2011 Third Quarter Results

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - Nov 21, 2011) - Hollywood Media Corp. (NASDAQ: HOLL) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011.

On a continuing operations basis which includes the contribution from the Ad Sales and Intellectual Property divisions, net revenues for the 2011 third quarter were $0.9 million compared to $1.0 million in the prior-year period.

Loss from continuing operations for the 2011 third quarter was $5.6 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, which includes a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $4.8 million relating to the Company's Ad Sales division, compared to a loss from continuing operations last year of $2.2 million, or $0.07 per share.

Net loss, which includes discontinued operations, was $5.4 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the 2011 third quarter, compared to a net loss last year of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per share. The Company had approximately 23.2 million weighted average shares outstanding in the 2011 third quarter compared to 30.9 million weighted average shares outstanding in the prior-year period. The reduction in share count relates to an 8 million share tender offer completed in the 2011 first quarter.

At September 30, 2011, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $5.5 million and no debt versus cash and cash equivalents of $29.4 million and no debt at December 31, 2010. The change reflects the completion of the Company's tender offer as well as costs related to the sale of the Broadway Ticketing business including a working capital adjustment.

During the quarter, Mitchell Rubenstein, CEO of Hollywood Media, became the Chief Executive Partner (CEP) of Tekno Books in which Hollywood Media maintains a 51% interest. Mr. Rubenstein's appointment follows the death of Martin Greenberg, the prior CEP. Laurie Silvers, President of Hollywood Media, is now responsible for the day-to-day management of Tekno Books which includes a strategic shift in focus from print books to e-books.
