RLJ Entertainment, Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014

RLJ Entertainment, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company's revenues were $37.1 million compared with $32.7 million a year ago. The increase was driven by increased revenue related to the release of the current season of the Foyle's War franchise, offset by a decrease in revenue in the Wholesale segment. Loss from operations was $2.45 million compared with $4.35 million a year ago. Loss before provision for income taxes was $7.96 million compared with $7.84 million a year ago. Net loss was $7.8 million or $0.62 per basic and diluted share compared with $8.51 million or $0.68 per basic and diluted share a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $6.6 million compared with $3.7 million a year ago. The increase is primarily driven by a decline in the net operating loss as a result of improved operational activities consisting of increased revenue and gross margin, partly due to the release of the current season of Foyle's War, and reduced operating expenses. For the nine months, the company's revenues were $99.5 million compared with $107.3 million a year ago. The decrease in revenue was primarily due to a decrease in the company's Wholesale revenue of $9.0 million which is primarily from the terminated output deal. Loss from operations was $11.3 million compared with $20.5 million a year ago. Loss before provision for income taxes was $19.6 million compared with $27.3 million a year ago. Net loss was $20.1 million or $1.61 per basic and diluted share compared with $29.0 million or $2.33 per basic and diluted share a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $2.9 million compared with $1.2 million a year ago. The increase was primarily due to its improved gross margin and lower SG&A costs.
