Rentrak Reports Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Financial Results -- 12% Increase in Consolidated Revenue and Third Consecutive Quarter of Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth -- -- 107% Increase in Year-to-Date Revenue in TV Business -- PR Newswire PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 7, 2013 PORTLAND, Ore., Feb.7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Rentrak Corporation (NASDAQ: RENT), a leader in multi-screen media measurement serving the advertising, television and movie industries, today announced financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended December31, 2012, including the third consecutive quarter of year-over-year revenue growth. Consolidated revenue increased 12 percent to $24.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared with $22.2 million for the same period last year, reflecting 32 percent revenue growth in the company's Advanced Media and Information (AMI) business, partially offset by a better than expected 5 percent decline in revenue in the company's Home Entertainment business. The company's AMI division revenue improved to $13.7 million for the fiscal 2013 third quarter, up from $10.4 million for the same period last year, and represented 55 percent of Rentrak's consolidated revenue, up from 47 percent last year. Revenue in the company's Home Entertainment business was $11.2 million, compared with $11.8 million for last year's third fiscal quarter. "The many accomplishments of our management team helped drive a great quarter for Rentrak as we performed very well in all of our divisions and continued the trend of year-over-year consolidated revenue growth for the third consecutive quarter," said Bill Livek, Rentrak's Vice Chairman and CEO. "The team's success in growing our AMI business included 99 percent growth in our TV business over last year and 107 percent growth year-to-date. Much better than anticipated results in Home Entertainment resulted from our team's continued success in extending the life cycle of this business through a variety of initiatives." (revenue in millions) 3QFY13 3QFY12 Percent Change Box Office Essentials™ $6.1 $5.5 11% OnDemand Everywhere $3.1 $2.6 17% TV Essentials™ $4.6 $2.3 99% Total AMI $13.7 $10.4 32% Total Home Entertainment $11.2 $11.8 (5)% Consolidated Revenue $24.9 $22.2 12% Numbers may not add due to rounding. Gross margin was 45 percent of consolidated revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared with 48 percent for the same period last year. Gross margin for the company's AMI business was 60 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared with 66 percent a year ago, due to a shift in the mix of revenue, more of which was generated by the company's TV business. Gross margin for Rentrak's Home Entertainment business was 26 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared with 32 percent last year. Operating expenses for the fiscal 2013 third quarter totaled $12.9 million, compared with $11.6 million for the fiscal 2012 third quarter. The increase mainly reflected a 22 percent increase in costs associated with the expansion of the company's AMI business, with approximately three-quarters of the increase in AMI expenses related to the company's TV business, partially offset by a 21 percent reduction in Home Entertainment-related costs. Operating loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $1.8 million, which included $1.5 million in stock-based compensation costs. For last year's third fiscal quarter, operating loss was $974,000, which included $1.1 million in stock-based compensation costs and $186,000 in acquisition-related costs, offset by a $110,000 credit related to the company's stock-based compensation agreement with DISH Network L.L.C. Excluding these amounts for both periods, operating loss would have been $241,000 for the fiscal 2013 third quarter, compared with operating income of $234,000 for the fiscal 2012 third quarter. Net loss totaled $1.8 million, or $0.15 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared with a net loss of $1.9 million, or $0.18 per share, for the same period last year. Excluding the costs already mentioned for both periods and a tax valuation allowance of $1.2 million recorded in the third quarter of fiscal 2012, net loss for the fiscal 2013 third quarter would have been $286,000, or $0.02 per share, compared with net income of $433,000, or $0.04 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The reconciliation of these non-GAAP earnings per share (EPS) to EPS, the most comparable financial measure based upon generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), as well as a further explanation about non-GAAP EPS, is included in the financial tables at the end of this press release. Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure), was $1.0 million for the fiscal 2013 third quarter versus $1.3 million for the fiscal 2012 third quarter. The reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most comparable financial measure based upon GAAP, as well as a further explanation about adjusted EBITDA, is included in the financial tables at the end of this press release. The company generated $1.1 million in cash from operating activities for the first nine months of fiscal 2013, compared with $5.7 million for the comparable fiscal 2012 period. Excluding the impact of an amendment to the company's agreement with DISH in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, Rentrak generated $6.9 million in cash from operating activities for the first nine months of fiscal 2013. Rentrak's cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities balance was $26.2 million at December31, 2012, compared with $27.8 million at March31, 2012. The company's cash balances include a $2.0 million investment made in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 in its Chinese TV measurement joint venture, Sinotrak. Rentrak's Chinese joint venture partner contributed 51 percent of this funding. The joint venture will measure viewership on all forms of video screens from digital devices in China. Rentrak recently achieved several important milestones including: oServing nearly 210 local TV station clients across approximately 50 TV station groups. This represents year-over-year growth of approximately 50 percent in local TV stations clients and 67 percent in station group clients. oBeing selected by the Mobile Content Venture, a joint venture of 12 major broadcast groups, to provide the TV industry's first-ever mobile broadcast TV measurement for local television markets. oEntering the measurement of the Indian movie industry through collaboration with one of Asia's largest independent marketing research firms. Long-Term Outlook Rentrak said that it remains confident in its ability to continue generating substantial growth in AMI revenue, including: oDoubling TV revenue annually over the next three years, with gross margins in the 50 percent range over the long-term, with variability due to fixed cost agreements. oGenerating 12 percent annual Box Office revenue growth with some year-to-year variability, and gross margins in the 75 percent range. The company also noted that it expects OnDemand Everywhere revenue growth to be approximately 15 percent for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 and revenue in its Home Entertainment business to decline for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, but at a slower rate than in the fiscal 2013 third quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA does not represent cash flows from operations as defined by generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), is not derived in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered by the reader as an alternative to net income (the most comparable GAAP financial measure to Adjusted EBITDA). Non-GAAP diluted EPS does not measure diluted EPS as defined by GAAP, is not derived in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered by the reader as an alternative to reported diluted EPS. The reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures for the three and nine month periods ended December31, 2012 and 2011 are included in the above table. Rentrak's management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is helpful as an indicator of the current financial performance of the company and its capacity to operationally fund capital expenditures and working capital requirements. Due to the nature of the company's internally-developed software policies and its use of stock-based compensation, Rentrak incurs significant non-cash charges for depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation expense that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. Rentrak also adjusts for acquisition and non-recurring costs as Rentrak's management believes this provides a useful metric by which to compare the performance from period to period. In addition, Rentrak's management believes that these costs as well as stock-based compensation should be factored out of reported EPS in order to provide a more useful indicator of the current financial performance of the company. No tax rate was applied to these adjustments because the company has established a valuation reserve against its deferred tax assets. Due to the nature of the company's equity and stock-based compensation plans and arrangements, costs associated with acquisitions and items which are considered nonrecurring in nature, the company's diluted EPS, which includes these items, may not be indicative of its on-going operating performance.
