Educational Development Corporation Announces Results For Second Quarter And Year-to-Date Fiscal Year 2014

TULSA, Okla., Oct. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Educational Development Corporation (Nasdaq:EDUC) ( ) today reported results for the fiscal second quarter and the six months ended August 31, 2013.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company announced net revenues of $5,715,100, an increase of $250,700 compared to $5,464,400 for the same period last year. The Company reported 2014 second quarter net earnings of $56,400 compared with $138,200 for the 2013 second quarter.

For the six months ended August 31, 2013, the Company reports net revenue of $11,705,600, a decrease of $353,400 when compared to $12,059,000 for the same period in the previous year and net earnings of $123,000 compared to $488,400. Earnings per share were $0.03 compared to $0.12 the previous year on a fully diluted basis.

The Publishing division continues to lead the way with another quarterly net revenue increase. This is due primarily to strong support from our retail customers since discontinuing sales eighteen months ago to Amazon, which were 20% of the division sales totals. The replacement of these sales is somewhat remarkable as Publisher's Weekly reported sales in our market segment down 28% year-to-date as of April 2013.

The Home Business division is also reporting a net revenue increase for the quarter and has continued with another increase in September. This is particularly noteworthy as this division has been slower to embrace the decision to discontinue sales to Amazon. 

The net earnings were down in the quarter partially due to the amortization of specific marketing costs which will be completed in September and are non-recurring.
