To facilitate a comparison between the reported periods, the company has presented both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures. GAAP financial measures include expenses related to non-cash compensation, changes in the fair value of warrants, severance costs and the benefit from the sale of certain state income tax benefits derived from net operating losses. Operating income, net income and diluted income per share have been adjusted to report non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these items. These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of the company's current financial performance and the company's prospects for the future. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute or superior to GAAP results. Reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures is included in the earnings press release issued earlier this afternoon.
I would now like to turn the call over to Jesse. Jesse?
Thanks, Stephanie. Today, I'll start my remarks with some highlights and an overview of our performance in the third quarter. Mike will then review our financial results. I'll then conclude with a recap of our product slate for the fourth quarter and the holiday season, and then we'll open the call up for questions.Our third quarter came in about as expected, as retail conditions for interactive entertainment remained challenging amid the typical summer seasonal slowness. Our Zumba Fitness products continued a strong performance, ranking among the top interactive dance and fitness titles. Overall, the Zumba Fitness franchise has now sold over 8 million units and maintained its standing as the second largest fitness franchise in the entire video game industry, and is also the best-selling fitness franchise on Kinect. We reported revenue of $9.1 million compared to $19.5 million in the third quarter last year. The year-over-year decrease is impacted by industry-wide decreases in retail sales attributable to the end of life cycle for several gaming platforms, including the Nintendo Wii and DS. As a result, non-GAAP earnings per share were a loss of $0.09 compared with non-GAAP income of $0.03 a year ago.
