RMG Networks Signs Non-Binding LOI to Sell Its Airline Media Network Business

Company to Reschedule Year-End Earnings Release and Conference Call; Management Expects No Changes From Previously Announced Preliminary Results

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 19, 2015) - RMG Networks Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: RMGN), or RMG Networks, a leading provider of technology-driven visual communications solutions, announced today it has entered into discussions with certain unaffiliated third parties regarding the proposed sale of its Media business, also known as the RMG Airline Media Network. The contemplated sale does not include the RMG Office Media Network.

As a result of these discussions, RMG Networks has signed a non-binding letter of intent to sell its RMG Airline Media Network business for $5.5 million, plus the assumption of certain liabilities to an unaffiliated third party. The parties are in the process of negotiating a definitive agreement.

"This possible divestiture will allow us to strengthen our balance sheet, reduce expenses and allocate additional resources to accelerate growth in our Enterprise business," said Robert Michelson, Chief Executive Officer and President of RMG Networks. "While our Media business is a leader in its space, its strategic sale will allow us to focus attention on our Enterprise business, which we believe provides us with more significant long-term growth opportunities. We believe the focus that this potential sale will give us, along with the other strategic and operational initiatives we are pursuing, will allow us to more quickly achieve our ultimate goal of sustainable profitability."
