LOS ANGELES, Nov. 13, 2013

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Point.360 (NASDAQ: PTSX), a leading
provider of integrated media management services, today announced results for
the three month period ended September 30, 2013. For the quarter, the
Company's sales were $6.8 million generating positive operating cash flow of
$0.6 million and negative earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and
amortization and non-cash charges (EBITDAN) of $0.4 million for the period.

Haig S. Bagerdjian, the Company's Chairman, President and Chief Executive
Officer said: "We continued to generate positive operating cash flow in the
first quarter of fiscal 2014. While revenues were negatively affected by
lower orders from one major customer, activity from others has increased. We
are seeing more opportunities for localization and deliveries of content
outside the United States on behalf of our customers. We will continue to
address this growing segment of the business."

Mr. Bagerdjian continued: "We are also very pleased that J. R. DeLang has
joined our Board of Directors. As mentioned in yesterday's news release, he
has over 20 years of experience in our industry and served as Twentieth
Century Fox's Executive Vice President of Studio and Post Production
Operations and Chief Operations Officer of Todd-AO. We look forward to his
contributions to Point.360."


Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 totaled $6.8 million compared
to $7.7 million in the same quarter last year. Declines were due primarily to
lower orders by a major customer.
