Singing Machine Announces $16.8 million in Net Sales in 3rd Quarter Earnings Report.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Singing Machine Company, Inc.  ("Singing Machine" or the "Company") (OTCBB: SMDM) today announced the results for its third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2013.

The Company reported third-quarter net sales of approximately $16.8 million, as compared to net sales of approximately $16.6 million in the same quarter last year. The Company also posted quarterly pre-tax income of approximately $1.4 million for the quarter and maintained gross margin of 24.4%. For the nine months ended, the Company reported net sales of approximately $29 million as compared with $32.7 million in the same period last year. The decrease in net sales is primarily attributed to a major customer switching from a seasonal program to a year-round program in 2012 and therefore having existing inventory to start the recent holiday season.  Consequently, this customer did not need to order as much new inventory.

Bernardo Melo, VP of Sales, commented, "Due to softer sell through trends in 2012 and a slow start to the holiday season this year, a few retailers were more conservative and bought less inventory for the 2013 holiday season since they had left over inventory from the prior season. Despite that, our overall retail sales exceeded last years figures with higher sell-through reported across the board.  A couple highlights of the recent holidays season worth mentioning are: A major retailer sold 70,000 more units year-over-year on core models. A key online retailer experienced 25% growth in sales volume and increased sales dollar by 50% compared to the prior year. This success is attributed to an inventory mix that included higher price point merchandise that sold through extremely well. As higher price point goods were well received by consumer electronics enthusiasts, we are confident that we are on the right path to continued success with the market expansion of the Singing Machine Home." Melo added, "We are already off to a solid start in 2014 and have received some early commitments from existing and new customers."

Gary Atkinson, CEO, commented, "We were also pleased with the reception of our new Singing Machine Home. We saw immediate buzz by the media and demand from our early adopting fans. Sales during the pilot test of the Home exceeded the expectations of our major retail customer. We believe there is strong market demand and proof of concept to continue development and plans are already under way to expand distribution of the Home in 2014."
