FriendFinder Networks Announces Effective Date of Plan of Reorganization; Emerges from Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection

(Sunnyvale, CA – December 23, 2013) FriendFinder Networks Inc., a leading internet and technology company providing services in the social networking and web-based video sharing markets, announced today that its plan of reorganization has become effective and the Company has emerged from bankruptcy protection.

The plan of reorganization becomes effective just three months after the Company filed for bankruptcy protection in order to strengthen its balance sheet and enable FriendFinder Networks to grow its flagship brands. Through this process, the Company’s annual interest expense is expected to be reduced by over $50 million and approximately $300 million of secured debt will be eliminated. As part of the reorganization, the Company’s shares are being deregistered and will no longer trade on the open market.

The plan of reorganization was overwhelmingly supported by the Company’s stakeholders. Under the terms of the plan, the 14% Senior Secured Notes due 2013 have been exchanged for new notes in the same principal amount, plus certain cash consideration. Holders of the 11.5% Non-Cash Pay Secured Notes due 2014 and 14% Cash Pay Secured Notes due 2013 receive substantially all of the new common stock to be issued by reorganized FriendFinder Networks, plus certain cash consideration subject to compliance with certain conditions.

FriendFinder Networks is being advised by the law firm of Greenberg Traurig LLP and Akerman LLP and financial advisor SSG Capital Advisors, LLC.
