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."
