Harris Interactive® Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results Raises Adjusted EBITDA Guidance; Introduces Fiscal 2013 Revenue Guidance PR Newswire ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 2, 2013 ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Harris Interactive Inc. (NASDAQ: HPOL), a leading global market research firm, today announced its third quarter fiscal 2013 financial results. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20100518/NY06801LOGO) Al Angrisani, President and Chief Executive Officer of Harris Interactive, commented, "Raising adjusted EBITDA guidance on strong Q3 results demonstrates further improvement in our business model and the turnaround effort. Sales remain a challenge, but essentially flat year-to-date sales versus the prior year are indicative of a gradual improvement across many, but not all, of our business units." Eric Narowski, Chief Financial Officer of Harris Interactive, commented, "Based on current market conditions and forecasts, we are raising our adjusted EBITDA guidance for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013 to between $14.0 and $15.0 million. Additionally, we are introducing full fiscal 2013 revenue guidance of between $139.0 and $141.0 million. Performance at these levels will allow us to continue to improve our balance sheet and pay off our remaining bank debt by fiscal year end."
