SNAP Interactive Announces First Quarter 2009 Operating Results

SNAP Maintains Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth, Continued Profitability (May 18, 2009)

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 05/18/09 -- SNAP Interactive, Inc. ("SNAP" or the "Company") (OTCBB: STVI), a leading provider of online dating applications for social networking websites, today announced operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.

Operational Highlights

-- Q1 2009 revenue: $768,972, as compared to $519,902 in Q1 2008 -- a 48% year-over-year increase

-- SNAP launches 'Are You Interested?' mobile dating application on the iPhone

(A comprehensive description of results follows below.)

"During one of the most difficult economic periods in decades where we have experienced substantial declines in advertising payouts, we are extremely pleased to have held the line -- continuing year-over-year revenue growth and maintaining overall profitability," stated SNAP President and CEO Clifford Lerner. "While other companies are laying off employees and scrambling to survive, not only have we remained profitable and not had to curtail our operations in any way, but we have used this time to position ourselves for the future by hiring additional talented programmers and developing two significant new products that we believe will play a major role in the expansion of the company going forward. We have repeatedly emphasized that our focus is on long-term growth ahead of immediate revenue generation, and by this measure we feel that we have achieved our primary objectives in Q1. We have spent the last several months developing and subsequently launching our 'Are You Interested?' iPhone application and our new AreYouInterested.com website and we expect that both of these products will be sources of future growth and diversified revenue streams. We believe that the online dating model is shifting -- with people now dating on social networks and on their mobile devices in addition to traditional stand-alone websites. SNAP is now in a position where it has a product offering in each of these areas and our long-term objective is to be a leader on every significant online platform where users are dating. We continue to make enhancements to AreYouInterested.com and our iPhone application on a daily basis and are excited to watch them develop and report their progress throughout the rest of the year. With our existing popular social networking applications and the launch of innovative new products opening fresh opportunities for growth and revenue, we feel that we are better positioned than ever for long-term success and achieving our goal of being a leader in the evolving social dating and mobile dating industries."

Comprehensive Operational Results Description

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2009 was $768,972, as compared to $519,902 for the three months ended March 31, 2008, a 48% increase.

These revenues are primarily generated from advertisements and premium features placed on our various applications. The year-on-year increase in revenue was primarily due to increased activity on our applications as well as the introduction of revenue-generating premium features.

Our revenue of $768,972 for the three months ended March 31, 2009 represented a 29% decrease as compared to revenue of $1,087,144 for the quarter ending December 31, 2008. The decrease in sequential quarterly revenue was largely due to the declining state of the advertising market and the associated declining payouts. The Company anticipates diminishing dependence on advertising revenue over time.

Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2009 was $66,472 as compared to net income of $190,509 for the quarter ended March 31, 2008, a 65% decrease. The decrease in net income was primarily due to the provision for income taxes which were not paid during the same period last year due to a Net Operating Loss carry-forward from previous quarters.

Based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period (basic) of 10,775,789, SNAP earned $0.01 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.
