First Look stems flow of 2nd-quarter red ink

Second-quarter revenue rose 121% to $9.8 million

HOLLYWOOD — Film distrib First Look Media, formerly Overseas Filmgroup, Wednesday posted a narrowed second-quarter loss of $673,000 amid a dramatic rise in revenue on richer income from foreign territories and improved TV sales.

The red ink in the latest quarter compared with almost $1.4 million in the same period a year ago.

Second-quarter revenue rose 121% to $9.8 million.

First Look, which has headquarters in L.A. and Gotham, secured a $7 million boost in its credit line with J.P. Morgan Chase in the second quarter, bringing its total to $40 million. Also, Germany’s Vereinsbank joined a syndication of lenders participating in the credit facility.

It is also active in commercial production and Internet content creation.
