Full-Year Financial Results
On a full year basis, consolidated net revenues were $77.3 million, an 8% increase compared to $71.9 million in 2011, as revenue gains at our Aerial Cameras unit and our core TOC business more than offset the continued decline in Winnercomm's third-party business.
Operating expenses for the year were $73.0 million, a 12% increase compared to $65.1 million in operating expenses for 2011 principally on higher advertising expense at TOC, merger related costs and increased costs related to increased events and revenues at our Aerial Cameras unit, net of reduced costs associated with our ActionCam litigation.
Resulting operating income for 2012 was $4.3 million, a 36% decrease from $6.8 million in operating income for 2011 with improved operating results at our Winnercomm and Aerial Cameras units offset by increased advertising and merger related costs at TOC. EBITDA, adjusted for share-based compensation expense and merger related costs, was $12.6 million, a 1% decrease compared to $12.8 million for 2011, principally on higher advertising expense at TOC.
Our consolidated net income for the year finished at $1.9 million, or $.07 per diluted share, essentially unchanged compared to net income of $1.8 million, or $.07 per diluted share, for 2011.
As announced by the Company on March 13, 2013, the Company has terminated its InterMedia merger agreement and entered into a definitive agreement with Kroenke Sports & Entertainment ("KSE") under which KSE will purchase the Company for $8.75 per share in an all-cash transaction. The transaction is subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals.
