Loop Media, Inc. ("Loop Media" or the “Company”) (NYSE American: LPTV), the free streaming television media company for business that serves over 2 billion video views per month via restaurants, various retail businesses, office buildings, doctors’ offices, airports, bars and college campuses, announced today third quarter financial guidance.

Similar to many companies that rely on the advertising market, the Company continues to see industry and macro headwinds in overall digital ad spend that has continued into its third quarter ended June 30, 2023, due in part to general industry pressures and continued uncertainty about a potential recession. Loop Media has previously disclosed a planned reduction in spending and costs and has started to implement certain of those reductions in the first two months of Loop Media’s third quarter ending June 30, 2023. The Company will continue to bolster these efforts as the Company focuses on margin improvement while building a robust platform for future growth.

Loop Media estimates for the quarter ended June 30, 2023, total revenue of approximately $5.4 million to $5.6 million, cost of revenue of approximately $3.5 million to $3.8 million and operating loss of approximately $(7.6) million to $(7.9) million. The Company expects to report reduced underlying SG&A expenses (which excludes stock-based compensation and amortization and depreciation) costs by approximately 20% for Loop Media’s quarter ended June 30, 2023, as compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2023. The Company estimates gross profit margin as a percentage of total revenue of approximately 30% to 33% for the quarter ending June 30, 2023.

The above quarterly guidance disclosure includes forward-looking statements. See “Safe Harbor Statement and Disclaimer” set forth below. The estimated financial results contained in this press release are subject to finalization in connection with the preparation of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.
