Gaiam, Inc. (NASDAQ: GAIA) (“the Company”), a lifestyle media company, today reported improved financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012. Excluding Real Goods Solar, Inc. (“RSOL”), which was deconsolidated from the Company on December 31, 2011, second quarter 2012 revenue rose 47.8% to $45.4 million compared to revenue of $30.8 million in the prior-year period. The increase in revenue reflects internal revenue growth of 26.8%, or $8.2 million, and a $6.3 million contribution by Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment, which was acquired on March 28, 2012. Excluding a non-cash unconsolidated equity investment loss of $0.9 million from RSOL, net loss in the quarter was $1.2 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $3.3 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in the same quarter last year.
Gaiam will be hosting a conference call today, August 9, 2012, beginning at 2:30 p.m. MT (4:30 p.m. ET). The conference call dial-in numbers are 212/231-2900 or 415/226-5355. Questions and answers will be reserved for analysts and investors.

Lynn Powers, CEO of Gaiam, Inc., commented, “We are pleased with Gaiam’s improved second quarter financial results, which reflect the progress we are making in positioning the Company as a leading independent distributor for quality media, fitness and wellness products. In addition, Gaiam branded products, such as our Restore line of wellness accessories, are increasingly resonating with consumers and we expect the re-launch of our website later this year with new features and increased functionality will benefit our direct to consumers segment. As a result, we continue to forecast growth over the balance of 2012, including improvements in revenues, operating income, and EBITDA.”
