RMG Networks Expects Sequential Adjusted Revenue Growth to Exceed 30% in the Fourth Quarter With Stable Adjusted Gross Margin and Improved Adjusted EBITDA

Anticipates Quarterly Adjusted Revenue(1) of Approximately $18.6 Million for Fourth Quarter 2014 and Adjusted Revenue(1) of Approximately $61.8 Million for Full-Year 2014

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 9, 2015) - RMG Networks Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: RMGN), or RMG Networks, a leading provider of technology-driven visual communications solutions, today announced preliminary financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014.

Fourth quarter 2014 adjusted revenue1 is expected to be approximately $18.6 million and full year 2014 adjusted revenue1 is expected to be approximately $61.8 million. In addition, the company expects fourth quarter 2014 adjusted EBITDA to improve sequentially over the third quarter of 2014.

Both of the company's business units are expected to show strong sequential fourth quarter adjusted revenue growth. In its Enterprise and Media businesses, fourth quarter adjusted revenue2 is expected to be $13.1 million and $5.5 million, respectively. These preliminary financial results are subject to completion of the company's customary year-end closing and review procedures and audit by the company's independent registered public accounting firm.

Robert Michelson, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We executed well in the fourth quarter and our results are encouraging as we expect strong sequential growth in both adjusted revenue and adjusted EBITDA. In addition, we continued to successfully implement the strategic initiatives that we expect will further establish the platform for long-term success."

"Since the third quarter, we have brought to market the first three products in our 'Six New Products in Six Months' initiative, strengthening our product portfolio with unique solutions," continued Mr. Michelson. "In addition, our sales team has significantly bolstered the number of seven-figure deals in our pipeline. This steadfast focus on product innovation, global coordination and sales team productivity has begun to drive the momentum that we believe will deliver accelerated growth beginning later this year."

These preliminary results are being provided ahead of the company's scheduled presentation at the 27th Annual ROTH Conference so that management can discuss updated financial information with the investment community. The Company undertakes no obligation to issue preliminary results in the future.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC regulations, including Adjusted Revenue, Adjusted Gross Margin and Adjusted EBITDA. In evaluating its business, RMG Networks considers and uses Adjusted Revenue, Adjusted Gross Margin and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental measures of its operating performance, and believes that many of the company's investors use these non-GAAP measures to monitor the company's performance.
