NEW YORK--Function(x) Inc. (Pink Sheets: FNCX), founded by media and entertainment entrepreneur Robert F.X. Sillerman, announced today that it has renamed the company Viggle Inc. The Company also announced a reverse stock split.

Viggle has enjoyed great success since its launch on iOS devices in January. In anticipation of new features and expanded device compatibility, the Company is making the name change to make it simpler and more direct for Viggle members and others to easily identify the primary business of the Company with its publicly traded shares.

[The Company will trade under ticker symbol FNCXD. Subject to FINRA approval, the Company anticipates that it will change its stock symbol later this year and will publicly report such change when it becomes effective.]

The Company also announced today a reverse 1 for 2 stock split, effective June 7, 2012.
