PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, May 9, 2013

LOS ANGELES, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Point.360 (NASDAQ: PTSX), a leading
provider of integrated media management services, today announced results for
the three and nine month periods ended March 31, 2013, including nine month
sales of $23.7 million, operating cash flow of $1.6 million, and earnings
before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and non-cash charges
(EBITDAN) of $2.0 million.

Haig S. Bagerdjian, the Company's Chairman, President and Chief Executive
Officer said: "We continued to generate positive cash flow in the first nine
months of fiscal 2013. We are finding increasing demand for localization of
content for international use. Additionally, we are working with several major
portals for the delivery of content."

Mr. Bagerdjian continued: "By the end of summer, we expect to open two new
Movie>Q stores to test a smaller physical distribution model. Delays have
resulted from the long ordering periods for certain components related to the
new system. Since the lease costs of these stores have been previously
absorbed by the existing three stores, incremental sales are expected to
generate greater gross margins."


Revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 totaled $8.3 million compared to
$8.5 million in the same quarter last year. Revenues for the nine months
ended March 31, 2013 were $23.7 million compared to $26.0 million last year.
Declines were due primarily to lower content distribution orders by a major

Gross Margin

In the third quarter of fiscal 2013, gross margin was $3.1 million (37% of
sales), compared to $2.8 million (33% of sales) in the prior year's quarter.
For the first nine months of fiscal 2013, gross margins were $8.3 million (35%
of sales), compared to $9.3 million (36% of sales) in last year's period.

Selling, General and Administrative and Other Expenses

For the third quarter of fiscal 2013, SG&A expenses were $3.0 million, or 37%
of sales, compared to $3.0 million, or 36% of sales in the third quarter of
last year. For the current nine month period, SG&A expenses were $8.9 million
(37% of sales), compared to $9.2 million (35% of sales) last year.

Interest expense was $0.1 million and $0.3 million for the three and nine
month periods ended March 31, 2013, respectively, and $0.2 million and $0.6
million in last year's three and nine month periods. The decrease was due to
lower interest rates and amounts borrowed.

Other income in all periods includes sublease income. In the fiscal 2013 nine
month period, other income also included a $332,000 discount received on the
payoff of a mortgage, offset by the write offs of $90,000 of deferred
financing costs related to that mortgage and a $30,000 fee to terminate a
revolving credit agreement, in addition to income of $131,000 associated
with a change in accounting estimate related to a customer rebate program.

Operating Income (Loss)

Operating income was $11,000 in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to a
$0.2 million loss in last year's quarter. For the nine months ended March 31,
2013, the operating loss was $0.6 million compared to operating income of $0.1
million last year.

per share) compared to a loss of $0.3 million ($0.03 per share) in the prior
year's quarter. For the first nine months of fiscal 2013, the Company
