Educational Development Corporation Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2020 Results

TULSA, Okla., Oct. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Educational Development Corporation (“EDC”) (NASDAQ: EDUC) ( today reports net sales and earnings per share results for the second quarter ended August 31, 2019.   

Randall White, CEO of Educational Development Corporation, announced that for the fiscal second quarter ended August 31, 2019, the Company reports net revenues of $24,438,000, a decrease of $243,000, or 1.0%, when compared to $24,681,000 for the second quarter of the previous year.  Net earnings totaled $1,007,600 for quarter ended August 31, 2019, compared to $1,490,700 for the quarter ended August 31, 2018, a decrease of $483,100, or 32.4%.  Earnings per share for the quarter were $0.12 compared to $0.18 for the same quarter in the previous year, down 33.3% on a fully diluted basis.

The net revenues of our direct sales division, Usborne Books & More (“UBAM”) totaled $21,735,200 during the quarter ended August 31, 2019, a decrease of $340,300 or 1.5%, from $22,075,500 for the quarter ended August 31, 2018.  Our average number of active consultants were 33,600 during the quarter ended August 31, 2019, an increase of 800, or 2.4%, from the average active consultant count reported for the second quarter of last year of 32,800.   

The Publishing division’s net revenues increased $97,300, or 3.7%, to $2,702,800 in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, from $2,605,500 for the same quarter a year ago.  Publishing sales increased primarily from an increase in order volumes with smaller customers.    

The Company’s year to date net revenues in the first two quarters of the year were $52,025,400, a decrease of $2,677,900, or 4.9%, from $54,703,300 reported in the same period last year.  Year to date earnings per share decreased $0.11, or 27.5%, from $0.40 for the six months ended August 31, 2018, to $0.29 for the six months ended August 31, 2019.

Per Mr. White, “While our UBAM second quarter net revenues were slightly down, we are very excited in the recent growth in our active number of UBAM sales consultants.  During our annual convention at the end of June of this year, we announced a UBAM 30th Anniversary Recruiting Special which, with the hard work of our existing UBAM consultants and leaders, brought in over 10,000 new recruits and we ended the quarter with over 35,000 active consultants.  While adding this volume of new recruits is extremely exciting, it can take some time before new consultants have their first sales success.”

“The recruiting efforts were finally realized with our UBAM monthly net revenues for the last month of the quarter exceeding last year’s comparable month by over 8%.  We are excited as this sales growth continues into the fall selling season, which is our busiest time of the year.”

Mr. White continued, “Our Publishing division reported modest growth this quarter as we continue to add new retail customers, specifically in the Toy and Gift store classifications.  We expect growth to continue in this fiscal year as we add new accounts and return to historical sales levels with our largest retail accounts.”

Mr. White continued, “In addition to the difficulty in our sales comparisons, the second quarter of last year had a few benefits that created less expenses for the quarter; including a property tax exemption refund for our new building along with a refund from our travel agent/resort associated with the UBAM annual incentive trip. Both of these unplanned refunds reduced our second quarter expenses and increased our profitability.  Without these refunds, our pretax profitability in the second quarter of the previous year would have been more comparable to this year.”     

Mr. White concluded, “Our Board has approved the continued payment of dividends this quarter and authorized a $0.05 per share cash dividend which will be paid on or around Thursday, December 5, 2019 to shareholders of record November 14, 2019.  We are pleased to continue our practice of paying quarterly dividends.”
