Singing Machine Announces $14.3 Million in Net Sales, Profit in 2nd Quarter Earnings Release

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Singing Machine Company, Inc.  ("Singing Machine" or the "Company") (OTCBB: SMDM) announces the results for its second fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2012.

For the quarter, the Company reported net sales of approximately $14.3 million compared to $14.1 million in the same period last year, an increase of approximately $0.2 million (approximately 1% increase). Gross margins also improved for the quarter from 22.6% to 24.1% (increase of 1.5%) as compared to the same period last year. Total operating expenses went up from approximately $1.7 million to $2.0 million, compared to the same period last year.  

As a result, the Company reported net income of approximately $1.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, compared to approximately $1.5 million over the same period last year. For the quarter, income per share remained steady at $0.04 cents per share as compared to the same period last year. The Company reports the flat growth in net sales and net income is primarily a timing issue due to retail customers taking delivery later in the year for the holiday.  

"We're pleased with our results so far," commented Gary Atkinson, Singing Machine CEO. "We were able to meet our 2nd quarter numbers from the prior year, despite being forced to delay some shipments to some of our retail customers. As we head into our holiday season, look for us in new and existing retail stores and keep your eyes out for some Black Friday deals. We're also pleased to announce our new website launch which you can visit at www.singingmachine.com."

This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses. Real-time stream processing is needed in a variety of different industries such as Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Automobile, Finance, Online Retail, Smart Grids, and Healthcare. Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed distributed stream computation service that provides low latency, scalable processing of streaming data in the cloud with an enterprise grade SLA. It features built-in integration with Azur...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy.
