Item 8.01 Other Events.

On February 29, 2012, Redbox Automated Retail, LLC (“Redbox”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Coinstar, Inc. (“Coinstar”), entered into a First Amendment to the Revenue Sharing License Agreement (the “Amended Agreement”) with Universal Studios Home Entertainment LLC (“Universal”), which extended the term of the parties’ DVD rental revenue sharing arrangement, from April 21, 2012 to August 31, 2014. Coinstar has guaranteed up to $10 million of Redbox’s liability under the Amended Agreement.

Certain statements in the foregoing paragraphs are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “expect,” and variations of such words, and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements, but their absence does not mean that the statement is not forward-looking. The forward-looking statements in this release include statements regarding Redbox’s relationship with Universal relating to, among other things, a DVD rental revenue sharing arrangement. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results may vary materially from the results expressed or implied in such statements. Differences may result from actions taken by Coinstar, Redbox or Universal, including those beyond our or Redbox’s control. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the termination or the renegotiation on materially adverse terms of the Amended Agreement, and failure to abide by the terms and requirements of the Amended Agreement. The foregoing list of risks and uncertainties is illustrative, but by no means exhaustive. For more information on factors that may affect future performance, including our relationship with Universal, please review “Risk Factors” described in our most recent Form 10-K and any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as other filings. These forward-looking statements reflect Coinstar’s expectations as of the date hereof. Coinstar undertakes no obligation to update the information provided herein.
