PLAINVIEW, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 05/09/12 -- NeuLion, Inc.

Revenue grew to $10.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. (All amounts are in U.S. dollars.)

"Management is pleased with the continued expansion of the company's footprint in the burgeoning market of video content streaming," said Nancy Li, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "Driven by the proliferation of Internet-connected devices and the fundamental shift in video consumption habits, we continue to build our proprietary technology and deliver targeted solutions in professional sports, TV Everywhere and college athletics. We fully expect our digital solutions to exploit the massive consumer demand for viewing video content anytime, anywhere, especially as adoption of interactive TV over the Internet accelerates."

First Quarter Operational Highlights:

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2012:

Revenue was $10.4 million, as compared to $9.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011, marking a period-over-period increase of $0.5 million, or 5%.

Cost of revenue, exclusive of depreciation and amortization, was $4.5 million (43% of revenue), as compared to $4.0 million (40% of revenue) for the three months ended March 31, 2011, marking a period-over-period change of $0.5 million (3% of revenue).

Consolidated net loss was $3.5 million, which includes $1.6 million of non-cash and/or non-operating charges, netting a non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss of $1.9 million, as compared to a consolidated net loss of $3.9 million, which includes $1.9 million of non-cash and/or non-operating charges, netting a non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss of $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011, marking a period-over-period improvement in non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss of $0.1 million, or 5%. Non-cash and/or non-operating charges consist of depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, interest income, deferred income taxes and foreign exchange loss.

As of March 31, 2012, we had $9.3 million in cash and cash equivalents.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

We report non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss because it is a key measure used by management to evaluate our results and make strategic decisions about our company, including potential acquisitions. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss represents consolidated net loss before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, unrealized gain/loss on derivatives, investment income, non-controlling interests, loss on dissolution of majority-owned subsidiary and foreign exchange gain/loss. This measure does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) and therefore is unlikely to be comparable to the calculation of similar measures used by other companies, and should not be viewed as an alternative to measures of financial performance or changes in cash flows calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The below table reconciles our non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Loss to its most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, consolidated net loss:
