LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Luxury style and living flash sale online retailer, LuxeYard, Inc., (OTCQB: LUXR)reported its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, detailing a move towards greater operational efficiencies. 


"LuxeYard's third quarter was pivotal for our future development," said LuxeYard, Inc.

LuxeYard is dedicated to reducing our operational burn while increasing internal efficiencies to boost revenue, margins, and shareholder value."

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results and Fourth Quarter 2012 Outlook

Total revenue for the third quarter was $574,381, a decrease of 19% from the prior quarter, due to the termination of our Management Service Agreements with Jaxon International, LLC and Ferris Holdings Co.  Total Operating expenses were $3,247,076 million in Q3, compared to $7,622,999 in Q2, due primarily to decreased SG&A costs, which included expenses related to: payroll, advertising, and decreases in the fair market value of stock issued for services provided by various vendors.  Additionally, the Company recognized $6.05 million in gains on derivatives, triggered by a decrease in the market value of its common shares, as required by GAAP.  Giving effect to these items, net income was $3.59 million, equal to $(0.04) per diluted share.

The Company's third quarter 2012 was focused on improving internal efficiencies to reduce operational burn, while continuing to provide customers with access to a deep product-mix and a robust shopping experience.  To this end, the Company enacted the following changes to further increase profitability:
