MeetMe Reports Preliminary Fourth Quarter Revenue Results Above its Previously Released Guidance


MeetMe, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEET), a public market leader for social
discovery, today reported preliminary revenue results for its fourth
quarter ended December 31, 2016. MeetMe is releasing these results in
anticipation of meetings with institutional investors in Los Angeles,
San Diego, San Francisco, Portland and Denver between January 5 and
January 13, 2017.

Preliminary Fourth Quarter 2016 Revenue Results

Total revenue for the quarter is expected to be approximately $29.1
million, representing growth of 46% year over year. Previously MeetMe
had provided revenue guidance in the range of $27.5 million to $29
million for the quarter.

David Clark, Chief Financial Officer of MeetMe, commented:

“Mobile advertising rates in the United States increased to record
levels in the fourth quarter, resulting in better than expected revenue
performance from both our MeetMe and Skout brands. Each brand achieved
its highest recorded revenue days ever in late December, and the two
brands combined generated more than $400,000 in revenue in a single day
for the first time in December, which they then repeated six more times
before the year ended. Additionally, we started 2017 with a record 33
million chats sent on a single day on our MeetMe property.”

Earnings Call and Webcast

MeetMe expects to report full fourth quarter and 2016 year-end results
in early March. Details on the earnings conference call and webcast will
be provided in a separate press release.
