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

TULSA, Okla., Jan. 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Educational Development Corporation ("EDC") (Nasdaq:EDUC) ( today reported results for the fiscal third quarter and the nine months ended November 30, 2013.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2014, EDC announced net revenues of $8,502,000, an 8% increase compared to $7,864,400 for the same period last year. EDC reported 2014 third quarter net earnings of $547,800 compared with $525,700 for the 2013 fiscal third quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were negatively impacted by one-time charges from prior years for state franchise taxes.

For the nine months ended November 30, 2013, EDC reports net revenue of $20,207,600, an increase of $284,200 when compared to $19,923,400 for the same period in the previous year and net earnings of $670,800 compared to $1,014,100. Earnings per share were $0.17 compared to $0.26 the previous year on a fully diluted basis. Net earnings decreased primarily due to the amortization of non-recurring specific marketing costs.

The Publishing division, EDC Publishing, continues a trend with another quarterly net revenue increase. The Division recorded an all-time record sales month in October 2013. As previously reported, 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 16% year-to-date as of November 2013.

The Home Business division, Usborne Books and More (UBAM), is reporting a net revenue increase of 8% for the quarter as compared with the same quarter of the prior year. With another increase in December, the division has had seven consecutive months with increases over the prior year. As previously reported, this is particularly noteworthy as this division has been slower to embrace the decision to discontinue sales to Amazon.   Attendance at our annual leadership training conference, held this past weekend, increased 50% over the prior year's meeting.
