(1) Operating expenses include direct operating, selling, general and administrative expenses. Included in operating expenses are $0.1 and $0.2 million of non-cash stock-based compensation for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Operating expenses do not include corporate expenses, depreciation and amortization, impairment charge, gain (loss) on sale of assets, gain (loss) on debt extinguishment and other income (loss).

(2) Corporate expenses include $0.6 million and $0.7 million of non-cash stock-based compensation for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

(3) Consolidated adjusted EBITDA means net income (loss) plus gain (loss) on sale of assets, depreciation and amortization, non-cash impairment charge, non-cash stock-based compensation included in operating and corporate expenses, net interest expense, other income (loss), gain (loss) on debt extinguishment, income tax (expense) benefit, equity in net income (loss) of nonconsolidated affiliate, non-cash losses and syndication programming amortization less syndication programming payments. We use the term consolidated adjusted EBITDA because that measure is defined in our credit facility and does not include gain (loss) on sale of assets, depreciation and amortization, non-cash impairment charge, non-cash stock-based compensation, net interest expense, other income (loss), gain (loss) on debt extinguishment, income tax (expense) benefit, equity in net income (loss) of nonconsolidated affiliate, non-cash losses and syndication programming amortization and does include syndication programming payments. While many in the financial community and we consider consolidated adjusted EBITDA to be important, it should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of liquidity and financial performance prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, such as cash flows from operating activities, operating income and net income. As consolidated adjusted EBITDA excludes non-cash gain (loss) on sale of assets, non-cash depreciation and amortization, non-cash impairment charge, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, net interest expense, other income (loss), gain (loss) on debt extinguishment, income tax (expense) benefit, equity in net income (loss) of nonconsolidated affiliate, non-cash losses and syndication programming amortization and includes syndication programming payments, consolidated adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations because it excludes and includes several important non-cash financial line items. Therefore, we consider both non-GAAP and GAAP measures when evaluating our business. Consolidated adjusted EBITDA is also used to make executive compensation decisions.

(4) Free cash flow is defined as consolidated adjusted EBITDA less cash paid for income taxes, net interest expense, and capital expenditures. Net interest expense is defined as interest expense, less non-cash interest expense relating to amortization of debt finance costs, less non-cash interest expense relating to discount amortization on our $324 million aggregate principal amount of 8.750% senior secured first lien notes (the "Notes"), which were fully redeemed on August 2, 2013, and less interest income. Free cash flow per share is defined as free cash flow divided by the basic or diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.

Commenting on the Company's earnings results, Walter F. Ulloa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "During the first quarter, we achieved continued growth in core advertising revenue (excluding retransmission consent revenue and political advertising revenue) as our television segment again outperformed the television broadcast industry.  Continuing the trend of the last several years, we also experienced an increase in retransmission consent revenue.  We also improved our free cash flow and net income over the first quarter of 2013 as we benefited from the successful refinancing of our debt.  Our audience shares remain strong in the nation's most densely populated Latino markets, and we believe we are well positioned to benefit as the U.S. Latino market continues to expand and advertisers increasingly recognize the importance of reaching our target audience."

Announces Quarterly Cash Dividend                                                  

The Company announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a quarterly cash dividend to shareholders of $0.025 per share of the Company's Class A, Class B and Class U common stock, in an aggregate amount of approximately $2.2 million. The quarterly dividend will be payable on June 30, 2014 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on June 13, 2014, and the common stock will trade ex-dividend on June 11, 2014. As previously announced, the Company currently anticipates that cash dividends will be paid on a quarterly basis in the future. Any decision to pay cash dividends in the future will be subject to further approval by the Board.

(1) Operating expenses and corporate expenses are defined on page 1.

Net revenue increased to $52.7 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 from $49.1 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2013, an increase of $3.6 million. Of the overall increase, approximately $2.8 million was generated by our television segment and was primarily attributable to increases in local advertising revenue and retransmission consent revenue.  The remaining $0.8 million of the overall increase was generated by our radio segment and was primarily attributable to an increase in national advertising revenue.

Operating expenses increased to $33.5 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 from $31.9 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2013, an increase of $1.6 million. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in salary expense, employee benefits costs and payroll taxes associated with the increase in salary expense.

Corporate expenses increased to $4.8 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014 from $4.5 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2013, an increase of $0.3 million. The increase was primarily attributable to increases in salary expense and interactive media-related expenses.
