During the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company sold its non-branded entertainment media distribution operations (“GVE”) and discontinued its direct response television marketing (“DRTV”) operations. As a result, the Company now reports these businesses as discontinued operations, and has reclassified the financial results for all periods presented below accordingly. Unless otherwise noted, all figures below reflect the continuing operations of Gaiam, which is comprised of the Company’s branded yoga, fitness, and wellbeing business, including Gaiam-branded fitness media content and products, which have a presence in over 38,000 retail doors worldwide; the Company’s branded e-commerce platform; and Gaiam TV.
Lynn Powers, Chief Executive Officer of Gaiam, commented, “The 2013 full year organic revenue growth of 22% reflects the successful execution of our strategic operating priority to focus our resources on delivering consistent growth in our core Gaiam-branded businesses, which include yoga, fitness and wellbeing. Gaiam is recognized throughout the world as one of the leading companies and brands for these markets and based on extensive branding research, we believe Gaiam is the number one non-apparel yoga brand for consumers. Our sale of GVE, sales of the majority of our holdings in Real Goods Solar, as well as our decision to discontinue our DRTV operations, align Gaiam’s operations around our key business focus and favorably position the Company to monetize the value of our brand through organic growth initiatives as well as through potential acquisitions that complement our strategic initiatives.
