San Antonio, August 1, 2013…CC Media Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: CCMO) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.
“During the quarter, we made important progress across our businesses – delivering overall topline growth in a challenging market while strengthening our digital and national advertising capabilities for the future,” said Bob Pittman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are continuing to create innovative, multi-platform solutions for leading national marketers and brands. Emphasizing our focus on connecting consumers to their favorite stations, artists, and content wherever they are, iHeartRadio registered users were up 162% from last year’s second quarter and reached the milestone of 30 million registered users in less than two years. Industry research shows that broadcast industry radio listening is also growing – up 9% over the last decade – and remains the #1 source of music discovery and the #1 listening choice in the car by a wide margin. At a time when consumers are spending more time out of their homes than ever – and expect to be connected wherever they are – both our Media+Entertainment and our Outdoor businesses continue to benefit from our leadership in that out-of-home sweet spot we’re seeing globally. Outdoor generated strong results this quarter by leveraging its growing base of digital displays, both domestically and internationally. We also continued to improve our balance sheet with two opportunistic and transformative debt transactions, and we enhanced our liquidity through both operational improvements and the sale of non-core assets."
