Narrowstep Announces Year-End Results

LONDON and NEW YORK, May 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Narrowstep(TM) Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: NRWS) , the TV on the Internet Company, announced its financial results for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2007. Revenue for the year was a record $6,008,835, an increase of 122% compared to $2,706,262 for fiscal year ended February 28, 2006. The increase in revenue was primarily driven by an increase in customers.

Net loss for year ended February 28, 2007 was $7,061,474, or a loss of $0.16 per common share, versus a net loss of $4,289,777, or a loss of $0.13 per common share, for the prior year.

David C. McCourt, Chairman and interim CEO of Narrowstep, commented on the earnings release, saying, "This was a great year for Narrowstep. Although we spent more time than expected cleaning up old issues, we still grew revenue by 122%, and took out over 30% of non-sales SG&A headcount and increased the sales force by over 85%. Going forward, Narrowstep should maintain its position as the premier choice for a company looking to monetize its content online."

Narrowstep expects to attain profitability by streamlining existing costs, growing revenue and investing in technology. Management believes that these efforts will allow the company to continue to provide what they believe is the best opportunity for customers to monetize their content, while offering a superior end-viewer experience.
