Educational Development Corporation Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2011 Results
TULSA, Okla., Jan. 19, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Educational Development Corporation (Nasdaq:EDUC) ( http://www.edcpub.com ) today reported results for the third quarter of fiscal 2011, ended November 30, 2010.
EDUC reports net revenue of $9,484,600 for the quarter ended November 30, 2010 of compared to $10,016,400 and net earnings of $776,900 compared to $925,100 for the same period last year.Our Publishing Division posted a net revenue gain of 2.4% for the quarter and 3.4% for the nine months ended November 30, 2010 over the same period in 2009. This is especially encouraging as the publishing industry reports Juvenile Hardbacks down 16% for the year and Juvenile Paperbacks down 6% for the year. The Home Business experienced an 8.2% net revenue decline for the quarter which is primarily due to decreases in home party sales, direct sales and internet sales. For the nine months ended November 30, 2010, net revenues declined 7.5% over the same period last year. This division has been impacted more by the economic conditions and consumer reductions in spending levels than our retail division; consequently, we continue to develop incentives for our field sales force to support their business. Despite the small decline in sales and earnings, we continue a strong cash position while maintaining a $0.15 quarterly dividend.
