Adaptive Medias Expects Revenues for the Fourth Quarter 2015 to Exceed Guidance; Company Expects to Achieve Positive Adjusted EBITDA for Quarter

IRVINE, Calif., March 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Content syndication and monetization company, Adaptive Medias, Inc. (OTCQB:ADTM), a leader in programmatic advertising across mobile, video and online display, today announced it expects revenues to exceed its previously announced guidance and to achieve positive adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2015.

“Our shift towards our 'Media Graph First' higher-margined technology sales strategy is well on-track as reflected by the increased demand for our technology. As a result, we expect our fourth quarter results will top our most recent guidance,” said John B. Strong, Adaptive Medias’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We now see fourth quarter revenues above $1.6 million, compared with our previous guidance of $1.33 million. We also expect to achieve positive adjusted EBITDA during the quarter.”

CEO Comments on Recent Offer to Acquire Adaptive Medias

Mr. Strong today also provided an update on the status of AdSupply’s recently-announced offer to acquire Adaptive Medias for approximately $1.50 per share. “As we continue to work with AdSupply to evaluate our options, we believe the combination of Adaptive Medias and AdSupply will likely represent a compelling opportunity for both companies and their respective clients and shareholders. We believe a merger of the parties could enhance the business and growth prospects of the combined entities and position us as a leading strategic partner of choice in the mobile advertising space and could potentially bring more value to our shareholders than our acquisition by AdSupply. We expect to complete our evaluation very soon and look forward to sharing our assessment with our shareholders,” concluded Mr. Strong.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

We report adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by our management and Board of Directors to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget and to develop short- and long-term operational plans. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating adjusted EBITDA, such as one-time stock compensation expenses, goodwill impairment and amortization, can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business. Accordingly, we believe that adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and Board of Directors.
