ST. AUGUSTINE, FL--(Marketwired - August 18, 2014) - Creative Learning Corporation (OTCQB: CLCN), owner and developer of Bricks 4 Kidz®, and Challenge Island®, the highly-popular children's education and enrichment programs, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2014.

Q3 Fiscal 2014 Financial Highlights (Year-Over-Year):

  • Revenue increased 33.3% to $2.1 million
  • Royalty fees increased 80.6% to $504,623
  • Achieved net income of $318,073 or $0.03 per share
  • Cash of $3.4 million as of June 30, 2014
  • Shareholders' equity of $3.4 million as of June 30, 2014

Brian Pappas, CEO of Creative Learning, commented, "We are pleased with our continued strong top line revenue growth, which reflects the rapid pace at which we are adding new franchises. I am especially pleased to report we recently surpassed 600 franchises worldwide and our recurring royalty fees increased over 80% compared to the same period last year. We attribute this success to our highly differentiated business model focusing on the underserved market of educational and enrichment programs. Specifically, there is growing interest in after-school and other programs that emphasize creativity and problem solving over standardized testing."

"Bricks 4 Kids has been extremely well received by the market, and Challenge Island is well positioned for similar growth worldwide. We recently announced our third franchise concept, Sew Fun Studios, and plan to launch additional franchise brands following this successful model."

Mr. Pappas concluded, "We have developed a scalable business model with minimal capex requirements and high margin, recurring revenue. Moreover, we have consistently generated very high ROI from our advertising and lead generation initiatives. We recently stepped up our advertising initiatives targeting new franchisees, which we believe will help drive our global expansion. We also increased our personnel and certain overhead, which will allow us to support our continued growth including the launch of Sew Fun Studios. We have also invested considerable resources on the international front. As a result, we expect to add several large international franchisees before year-end. Despite these investments in the business, we achieved profitability and continue to generate solid cash flow. At the same time, we maintained a strong balance sheet with over $3 million cash."

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $2.1 million, an increase of 33.3% compared to $1.6 million for the same period last year. Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $510,444 compared to $565,523 for the same period in fiscal 2013. Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 included increased personnel and international expenses, as well higher marketing expense as the company launched new advertising initiatives. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $318,073, or $0.03 per share, compared to net income of $565,063, or $0.05 per share, for the same period last year. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 included a $199,167 income tax expense, which was not incurred for the same period last year.
