Third Quarter
2022 Outlook

For the third quarter of 2022, the company is projecting total revenue to increase between 6% and 8% from third quarter 2021 total revenue of $66.0 million. The company is also projecting operating expenses before gains or losses on the sale or disposal of assets, stock-based compensation expense, changes in the estimated fair value of contingent earn-out consideration, impairments, depreciation expense and amortization expense to increase between 11% and 14% compared to the third quarter of 2021 non-GAAP operating expenses of $55.2 million.

A
reconciliation of non-GAAP operating expenses, excluding gains or losses
on the disposition of assets, stock-based compensation expense, changes in the
estimated fair value of contingent earn-out consideration, impairments,
depreciation expense and amortization expense to the most directly
comparable GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a
forward-looking basis due to the potential high variability, complexity and low
visibility with respect to the charges excluded from this non-GAAP financial
measure, in particular, the change in the estimated fair value of earn-out
consideration, impairments and gains or losses from the disposition of fixed
assets. The company expects the variability of the above charges may have a
significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on its future GAAP financial
results.

Forward-Looking
Statements

Statements used in this press release that relate to future plans, events, financial results, prospects or performance are forward-looking statements as defined under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results may differ materially from those anticipated as a result of certain risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to the ability of Salem to close and integrate announced transactions, market acceptance of Salem’s radio station formats, competition from new technologies, adverse economic conditions, and other risks and uncertainties detailed from time to time in Salem’s reports on Forms 10-K, 10-Q, 8-K and other filings filed with or furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(1) Regulation G

Management
uses certain non-GAAP financial measures defined below in communications
with investors, analysts, rating agencies, banks and others to assist such
parties in understanding the impact of various items on its financial
statements. The company uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate
financial results, develop budgets, manage expenditures and as a measure of
performance under compensation programs.

The
company’s presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered
as a substitute for or superior to the most directly comparable financial
measures as reported in accordance with GAAP.

Regulation
G defines and prescribes the conditions under which certain non-GAAP financial
information may be presented in this earnings release. The company closely
monitors EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Station Operating Income (“SOI”), Same
Station net broadcast revenue, Same Station broadcast operating expenses, Same
Station Operating Income, Digital Media Operating Income, Publishing Operating
Income (Loss), and operating expenses excluding gains or losses on the
disposition of assets, stock-based compensation, changes in the estimated fair
value of contingent earn-out consideration, impairments, depreciation and
amortization, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. The company
believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information
about its core operating results, and thus, are appropriate to enhance the
overall understanding of its financial performance. These non-GAAP financial
measures are intended to provide management and investors a more complete
understanding of its underlying operational results, trends and performance.

The
company defines Station Operating Income (“SOI”) as net broadcast revenue minus
broadcast operating expenses. The company defines Digital Media Operating
Income as net Digital Media Revenue minus Digital Media Operating Expenses. The
company defines Publishing Operating Income (Loss) as net Publishing Revenue
minus Publishing Operating Expenses. The company defines EBITDA as net income
before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. The company defines
Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before gains or losses on the disposition of assets,
before debt modification costs, before changes in the estimated fair value of
contingent earn-out consideration, before impairments, before net miscellaneous
income and expenses, before (gain) loss on early retirement of long-term debt
and before non-cash compensation expense. SOI, Digital Media Operating Income,
Publishing Operating Income (Loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are commonly
used by the broadcast and media industry as important measures of performance
and are used by investors and analysts who report on the industry to provide
meaningful comparisons between broadcasters. SOI, Digital Media Operating
Income, Publishing Operating Income (Loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not
measures of liquidity or of performance in accordance with GAAP and should be
viewed as a supplement to and not a substitute for or superior to its results
of operations and financial condition presented in accordance with GAAP. The
company’s definitions of SOI, Digital Media Operating Income, Publishing
Operating Income (Loss), EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not necessarily
comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

The
company defines Same Station net broadcast revenue as broadcast revenue from
its radio stations and networks that the company owns or operates in the same
format on the first and last day of each quarter, as well as the corresponding
quarter of the prior year. The company defines Same Station broadcast operating
expenses as broadcast operating expenses from its radio stations and networks
that the company owns or operates in the same format on the first and last day
of each quarter, as well as the corresponding quarter of the prior year. The
company defines Same Station SOI as Same Station net broadcast revenue less
Same Station broadcast operating expenses. Same Station operating results
include those stations that the company owns or operates in the same format on
the first and last day of each quarter, as well as the corresponding quarter of
the prior year. Same Station operating results for a full calendar year are
calculated as the sum of the Same Station-results for each of the four quarters
of that year. The company uses Same Station operating results, a non-GAAP
financial measure, both in presenting its results to stockholders and the
investment community, and in its internal evaluations and management of the
business. The company believes that Same Station operating results provide a
meaningful comparison of period over period performance of its core broadcast
operations as this measure excludes the impact of new stations, the impact of
stations the company no longer owns or operates, and the impact of stations
operating under a new programming format. The company’s presentation of Same
Station operating results are not intended to be considered in isolation or as
a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance
with GAAP. The company’s definition of Same Station operating results is not
necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other
companies.

For
all non-GAAP financial measures, investors should consider the limitations
associated with these metrics, including the potential lack of comparability of
these measures from one company to another.

The
Supplemental Information tables that follow the condensed consolidated financial
statements provide reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures that the
company uses in this earnings release to the most directly comparable measures
calculated in accordance with GAAP. The company uses non-GAAP financial
measures to evaluate financial performance, develop budgets, manage
expenditures, and determine employee compensation. The company’s presentation
of this additional information is not to be considered as a substitute for or
superior to the directly comparable measures as reported in accordance with
GAAP.
