    Wizard World Conventions Made Over 23 Million in 2014

    Press Release:

    Wizard World Reports 2014 Year End Financials

    106% Increase from 2013

    Wizar d WorldEl Segundo, CA, March 16, 2015 – Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD) (the “Company”), a leading provider of Comic Cons and pop culture conventions across the world, announced that the Company has released its 2014 audited financial results in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 (the “YE 2014”).

    Highlights include:

    • The Company hosted seventeen events in 2014: sixteen comic cons and one social con, bringing fans together with their favorite celebrities, artists, exhibitors in a pop culture and multimedia experience. This was an increase of nine events from the Company’s 2013 tour.

    • Convention revenue for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $23,060,178, an increase of $11,874,044 (or 106%) from $11,186,134 reported in the comparable year ended December 31, 2013. The significant increase in revenue in 2014 is primarily accredited to the increased number of events, better advertised and marketed events including more programming, an exciting list of celebrities and artists, and an increasing fan base, which all translates to higher revenue growth. Average revenue per event was $1,356,481.

    • Operating expenses were $6,823,253 in YE 2014, as compared to $3,921,585 for the same period in 2013, which was the result of increases in staffing and employment costs due to the increased number and size of the events, however the Company’s operating margins have improved year-over-year due to operating the events more efficiently.

    • Income from operations was $1,468,162 in YE 2014, as compared to $343,506 for the comparable period in 2013. The increase is primarily attributable to running more events and more profitable events during 2014, as compared to 2013.

    • The Company reported a net income of $995,617 or income per share of $0.02 for YE 2014, as compared to a net loss of $(3,637,735) or loss per share of ($0.09), in the comparable period in 2013. Income in 2014 was primarily generated from convention revenue and stronger profit margin versus the loss in 2013, which was non-cash generated from a loss on the fair value of the Company’s derivative liabilities. By the end of 2013, the Company successfully extinguished all derivative instruments.

    • As of December 31, 2014, the Company had working capital of $3,838,096 and as of March 16, 2015, there were 51,358,386 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.

    Additional highlights:

    • On March 3, 2015, the Company launched CONtv, a new digital network devoted to passionate fans of pop culture entertainment, providing consumers access to thousands of hours of exclusive content showcasing an original slate of programming as well as a vast digital catalog of over 1,200 must-watch titles, included, but not limited to, original series, cult television shows and genre movies encompassing sci-fi, horror, fantasy, anime, grindhouse, martial arts action, and more, to live coverage of events at the cons– all available on-demand either in a free, ad-supported format or a low cost, subscription-based model of $6.99/month for premium content.
