Boca Raton, FL, May 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bright Mountain Media, Inc. (OTCQB: BMTM), an end-to-end digital media and advertising services platform, today announced preliminary unaudited financial results for the year ended December 31, 2020.
Preliminary revenues for the year ended December 31, 2020 increased an estimated 130% to approximately $16 million, as compared to revenue of $7.0 million in the previous year. The increase in revenue was primarily due to continued platform growth, including from the acquisition of the Company’s publishing division Wild Sky Media. For the full year 2020, preliminary net loss from operations before tax is expected to be in a range between $75-$80 million, primarily driven by non-cash impairment charges of approximately $61 million.
“2020 was a year of innovation, revenue growth and expansion of our leading end-to-end digital media and advertising services platform,” said Kip Speyer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Bright Mountain Media. “Our progress was highlighted by our strategic rollup strategy that drove growth and the potential for long-term shareholder value creation.
“Operationally, the end of 2020 saw the ongoing integration of Wild Sky Media post-acquisition that has provided unique synergies and efficiencies. Wild Sky Media’s diverse website portfolio and greater than 100 million page views per month is continuing to drive broad growth across a diverse array of demographics. We expect momentum to build in 2021 as the digital advertising landscape rebounds with the anticipated ongoing reopening of the economy.
“The year culminated with the appointment two prominent business leaders to our Board of Directors, Pamela J. Parizek and Gretchen M. Tibbits. Gretchen brings with her over 25 years of experience in management, strategy and mergers and acquisitions, and Pamela has over 30 years of experience in strategic advisory, compliance, accounting, and financial reporting. Both are expanding the breadth and depth of our reach in a significant way as we move forward into 2021.
“Looking ahead, we are diligently working to file our annual report and continue to seek potential acquisition candidates that fit our highly selective requirements, are accretive, reasonably valued and complementary to our core business. With a robust pipeline, strategic growth initiatives in place, and strong revenue growth, we are well positioned to drive forward our business in 2021 and beyond,” concluded Speyer.
