Core Home Video and VOD Revenues Up by 59% for Hannover House in Q3, 2012

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hannover House, Inc. (Pinksheets: HHSE), a leading independent distributor of films, books and entertainment products, reported gross revenues of $746,375 for the three months ending September 30, 2012, with pre-tax net income of $411,636.  This is the eleventh consecutive quarter of profitability for Hannover House since the company became publicly traded in January, 2010.  Management believes that the results validate the business plan of balancing low-investment direct-to-video releases with higher-profile, limited-release theatrical titles as a means to maximize both revenues and bottom line results.

Principal revenue components for Hannover House in Q3 this year were DVD and Blu-Ray sales at $389,454, Video-On-Demand revenues of $275,667 and sub-distribution revenues of $35,822 from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment's release of "Twelve."  The company also recognized $40,000 in domestic television license fees.  Titles contributing the most to the Q3 results were video releases of "Patient Zero," "Animal Clinic" and "Pink Skies," with VOD contracts for "Toys in the Attic" and "Cook County" leading the revenues from that media.  Theatrical revenues from the September 7th launch of "Toys in the Attic" were not settled with exhibitors as of the close of the quarter and were therefore excluded from revenues.  The Company also elected to exclude international pre-sales of "Mother Goose" from the Q3 revenue calculations.

Net income for last year's third quarter (2011) was $1,018,788, on gross revenues of $1,996,367, over half of which was from home video and video-on-demand revenues generated by 20th Century Fox on the company's release of "Twelve."  Fox revenues for the current reporting quarter were $35,822.  The company also posted $300,000 in sponsorship participations during last year's Q3 from "Turtle: The Incredible Journey."  Adjusting for these two, one-time events from the prior year's Q3 revenues, leaves core DVD, Blu-Ray, VOD and Television revenues of $448,367 for Sept. 30, 2011.  The same core revenue streams for this year's current reporting quarter (excluding Fox), were $710,523 for Hannover House, representing an improvement in core media sales of approximately 59%. 

"We are pleased with the Q3 results," said Fred Shefte, President of Hannover House.  "The continued focus on our core business of high-margin, direct-to-video releases has generated a significant and positive impact on our corporate profile with retailers, and continues to build on our bottom line and retained earnings.  This business model is helping the company grow. The next 120-days will see the greatest volume of new releases ever from Hannover House, so we're looking forward to continued growth in Q4 and into next year," he concluded.

Upcoming releases from Hannover House include limited theatrical openings for "The Weather Station," "Asalto Al Cine" and "Borrar de la Memoria."  Direct-to-video releases include the holiday themed "Upon a Midnight Clear," the urban action film "Deceptz," the animated feature "Toys in the Attic," the sports-documentary "Fathers of the Sport," the stand-up comedy "Next Up," the suspense thriller "The Underneath," the sci-fi-horror "Zombie Revolution: Falls the Shadow," the camp horror "Cowboys and Vampires," and the political documentary "An Inconsistent Truth."  The company is also rereleasing "American Fighter Pilot" and repricing several other titles for sell-thru and budget bins, including "Turtle: The Incredible Journey" and "All's Faire In Love."

Hannover House recently acquired the domestic home video rights to twenty-two additional titles, including two multi-title ventures from AFM exhibitors.  During 2013, Hannover House plans to balance its direct-to-video product strategy with three or more significant theatrical release titles as "locomotives."

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT depl...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
