LOS ANGELES, CA -- Fandango, the nation's leading moviegoer destination, announced today that it delivered its best-ever May numbers for both traffic and ticket sales in the company's 12-year history. The company reported a 47 % surge in year-over-year ticket sales, a 29% percent year-over-year increase in monthly visitors (totaling 34 million in May 2012, the highest monthly unique visitors in company history), and its top monthly mobile percentage (28%) of total tickets sold.

"Fandango's record-setting May is yet another signal of the incredible momentum behind Fandango right now," said Executive Vice President and General Manager Rick Butler. "Our enormous network of theater screens and box office share, combined with our innovative mobile and social products as well as our extensive coverage of movie news and film reviews, has made Fandango an essential destination for moviegoers everywhere."

Fandango sold its first ticket twelve years ago, during the first week of June in 2000. Helping fuel Fandango's growth surge is the company's expanded exhibitor reach, thanks to recent deals with AMC Theatres, Regency Theatres and other chains - as well as record-setting May ticket sales for "The Avengers." In addition, Fandango struck recent partnerships with Yahoo! and AOL's Moviefone, becoming the movie ticketing provider for both sites. Fandango's innovations - including its award-winning mobile and tablet apps and social products, such as its recently launched Facebook app, "Movies With Friends," reserved seating, and paperless Mobile Ticket scanning - are now available to millions of additional moviegoers through these new partnerships.
