BFS Entertainment & Multimedia Limited Announces Results for Fiscal 2014

RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/29/14 -- BFS Entertainment & Multimedia Limited ("BFS") (TSX VENTURE:BFS) of Richmond Hill, Ontario, announces its audited consolidated financial and operating results for the fiscal year ended May 3, 2014.

Sales for the fiscal year were $9,002,995 compared to $9,910,037 last year. Net loss for the fiscal year was $125,169 ($0.02 per share) compared to net income of $67,052 ($0.01 per share) for the same period last year.

Denis B.E. Donnelly, President and CEO, stated, "The Company is adjusting to a new marketplace. We have increased our (so far unexploited) digital library to approximately 1,000 hours of programming. No digital sales were recorded in fiscal 2014, but contracts have been signed and are now in place with digital distribution companies such as Apple TV and iTunes, Amazon Instant Video and Vimeo On Demand. We expect to see digital revenues during the second half of fiscal 2015.

"We have reduced costs and are currently adjusting our operating model to support the new business and to return us to a profitable position.

"Our long term outlook is optimistic that we will remain a key long-term player in the distribution of programming regardless of delivery mode as we move forward in the digital world and hard goods and also grow our direct to consumer business."
