NEW YORK, October 25, 2012 -- Travelzoo Inc. (NASDAQ: TZOO):

• Revenue of $35.4 million, down 8% year-over-year

Travelzoo Inc., a global Internet media company, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, with revenue of $35.4 million, a decrease of 8% year-over-year. Operating income was $4.2 million, down 55% year-over-year. Net income was $3.4 million, with earnings per share of $0.22, down from $0.36 in the prior-year period.

"While we are confident about Travelzoo's long-term opportunity, we are disappointed with our Q3 results," said Chris Loughlin, chief executive officer. "Declines in SuperSearch and Local Deals were not made up by the positive momentum we saw in Getaways. Continued investments into sales team expansion and subscriber growth, as well as enhancements to our hotel and mobile products are affecting profitability in the near-term, but we believe these are the right steps to position Travelzoo for sustainable and profitable future growth."
