Genius Brands International Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results By Globenewswire

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Genius Brands International, Inc. (OTCQB:GNUS), developer and marketer of entertainment products including the award-winning Baby Genius® line of music and education-based products and characters, today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 ended September 30, 2012.



Highlights for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 included:




  • For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 revenues increased by 12.5% to $4,304,823 from $3,824,917 in the same period of 2011


  • Q3 2012 revenues declined by 3% to $1,632,078 from $1,682,005 in Q3 of 2011


  • For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 net loss increased by 53% to $(1,910,341) or $(0.03) per common share as compared to a net loss of $(1,250,631) or $(0.02) per common share in the same period of 2011


  • Q3 2012 net loss increased by 130.5% to $(720,427) or $(0.01) per common share, compared to $(312,474) or $(0.01) per common share in Q3 of 2011


  • Invested in creating new Baby Genius® branded products geared for sale through direct-to-consumer digital markets



"The broader retail environment is transforming from being dominated by traditional brick and mortar retailers to increasing sales and distribution through daily sales sites and digital distribution. With our well-known brand and high quality, high margin products, we believe Genius Brands is perfectly suited for this new marketplace," stated Genius Brands Chairman and CEO Klaus Moeller.


"Having a growing percentage of our revenues for Genius branded products coming from direct-to-consumer digital distribution channels, such as Groupon and others, has shifted our revenue cycle this year. Due to the nature of these sites, a large portion of the seasonal holiday sales are seeing a shift from the third to the fourth quarter as products are shipped directly to the consumer and not to brick and mortar retailers," added Moeller.





During the third quarter, Genius Brands invested in developing new Baby Genius® branded products including flashcards, puzzles, and board books. The Company is continuing to develop additional products that can be offered directly to consumers through its own BabyGenius.com website, third party sites, and daily sales offerings. Through direct-to-consumer sites the Company has a more open and available distribution channel through which to sell a broader product line.



Moeller continued, "We expect that our new products, together with our new relationships with many of the major daily sales sites will lead to a big impact on sales in the fourth quarter of 2012. We feel confident that we have laid the foundation to a successful business in this new sector. We will also aggressively build our new Baby Genius® website and start offering digital downloads in 2013."



The Company's Baby Genius® branded toy line, distributed under license by JAKKS Pacific's Tollytots division, launched and became available at brick and mortar Babies "R" Us toy stores and online at www.babiesrus.com, www.toysrus.com and www.amazon.com in the third quarter. Select toys in this line won recognition as being a top pick for educational and musical toys.



Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012 declined by 3% to $1,632,078, as compared to revenues of $1,682,005 in the same period of the prior year. The slight revenue decline resulted from a decrease in royalty revenues and third party licensed products sold through Genius Brands' distribution network, which was partially offset by an increase in sales of Genius Brands' proprietary branded DVDs and CDs.



For the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 revenues increased by 12.5% to $4,304,823 from $3,824,917 in the same period of 2011, driven by an increase in sales of third party licensed products through the Company's distribution network and an increase in Genius Brands' proprietary branded DVDs and CDs, which was offset by a decrease in royalty revenues as a result of a gap in toy licensing revenues.



Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $834,611 as compared to operating expenses of $742,332 in the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 12.4%. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 operating expenses were $2,700,300, an increase of 2% as compared to operating expenses of $2,654,419 for the same period of the prior year.
