Alliance Distributors Holding Inc. Reports September 30, 2012 Financial Results

Also Reports Signing Publishing Agreements with Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo

NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliance Distributors Holding Inc. (Pink Sheets: ADTR), a distributor of interactive video games and gaming products, today announced its financial results for its first quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Net sales for the first quarter in 2012 were $12.3 million, up 19% from the comparable 2011 period.  Net income for the first quarter in 2012 declined to $16,000 from $46,000 in the first quarter of 2011.  The decrease in net income reflects in part $125,000 in severance and related charges in connection with the previously announced outsourcing by the Company of its warehousing and fulfillment operations.

Jay Gelman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Year-over-year video game industry revenue continues to show a decline. We have been able to avoid significant downturns in our revenues by investing in value software and pursuing opportunities in key frontline software titles, and operations should increasingly benefit from the outsourcing we completed in the October. However, our results in the current quarter ending December 31, 2012 will be negatively impacted by business disruption from recent Hurricane Sandy.

"The first quarter also saw progress in our branching out into the publishing aspect of the video game business. Alliance Metaversal Studio LLC, our content development arm, signed publishing license agreements with Microsoft, Sony Computer Entertainment of America, and Nintendo of America. The addition of these rights to our iOS, Android, and Steam publishing rights gives Metaversal Studios platforms to publish offerings that may be made available to us from a wide variety of developers."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
