Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure
On May 10, 2007, Outdoor Channel Holdings, Inc. (the Company) held its regular quarterly investor conference call to review the financial results for its 2007 first quarter ended March 31. During this call, the Companys management, during a discussion regarding the Companys advertising revenue, referenced its annual budget which is up around 25% versus a year ago. As clarification, this statement was referencing the budgeted growth in the Companys advertising revenue relating to its short-form advertising (its direct sale of advertising time on Outdoor Channel to advertisers), not the Companys aggregate advertising revenue. The Companys aggregate advertising revenue is comprised of such short-form advertising plus long-form advertising, or infomercials, plus the sale of advertising time to third-party producers of some of the shows aired on Outdoor Channel. The Companys short-form advertising revenue is budgeted to be approximately 50% of its aggregate advertising revenue for 2007.
This information is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), or otherwise subject to the liability of that section, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Statements in this report that are not historical are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including statements, without limitation, our expectations, beliefs and intentions regarding the future advertising revenue of the Company. The Companys actual results could differ materially from those discussed in any forward-looking statements. The Company intends that such forward-looking statements be subject to the safe- harbor provisions contained in those sections. Such statements involve significant risks and uncertainties and are qualified by important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include but are not limited to: (1) the companys ability to grow the subscriber base of Outdoor Channel; (2) a decline in the number of viewers from having Outdoor Channel placed in unpopular cable or satellite packages, or increases in subscription fees, established by the service providers; (3) service providers discontinuing or refraining from carrying Outdoor Channel; and other factors which are discussed in the companys filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. For these forward-looking statements, the company claims the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
