Educational Development Corporation Announces Record Fiscal 2021 Third Quarter and Year to Date Results

TULSA, Okla., Jan. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Educational Development Corporation (“EDC”, or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: EDUC) (http://www.edcpub.com) today reports record net revenues and earnings per share results for the third quarter and year to date ended November 30, 2020.


Randall White, CEO of Educational Development Corporation, announced that for the third quarter ended November 30, 2020, the Company reports net revenues of $66,750,300, an increase of $25,925,700, or 63.5%, when compared to $40,824,600 for the third quarter ended November 30, 2019. Net earnings totaled $4,269,600 for the quarter ended November 30, 2020, compared to $2,735,800 for the quarter ended November 30, 2019, an increase of 56.1%.  Earnings per share for the quarter were $0.51, compared to $0.33 for the same quarter the previous year, an increase of 54.5% on a fully diluted basis.

Mr. White further announced that year to date net revenues through the first nine months of fiscal 2021 totaled $164,292,100, compared to $92,850,000 for the first nine months of fiscal 2020, an increase of $71,442,100, or 76.9%. Net earnings totaled $10,455,700 for the nine months ended November 30, 2020, an increase of 104.7% over $5,107,000 in net earnings reported during the same period last year. Earnings per share for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 were $1.25, compared to $0.61 reported for the first nine months of fiscal 2020, an increase of $0.64, or 104.9% on a fully diluted basis.

Per Mr. White, “The net revenues of our direct sales division, Usborne Books and More (“UBAM”) totaled $64,169,700 during the quarter ended November 30, 2020, an increase of 68.4% from $38,100,400 for the quarter ended November 30, 2019. While initially this division received a boost in sales last spring from parents at home with children needing educational materials, our sales growth is now driven by our increased number of active sales consultants. During the third quarter we continued to grow our number of active consultants, beginning in September with 50,300 active consultants and ending in November with 60,500 active consultants.  Our growth in active UBAM consultants continued to drive our growth in sales during the quarter and we expect this increase in sales consultants will continue to grow revenues in our fiscal fourth quarter and into fiscal 2022.

Mr. White continued, “Our UBAM division, which celebrated it’s 30th year anniversary in 2019, has developed into the Company’s primary sales growth channel. This division has been operating under the same company standards and practices that have been audited by independent firms for more than 32 years.”

Per Mr. White, “Our retail divisions net revenues decreased 5.3%, to $2,580,600 in the third quarter of fiscal 2021, from $2,724,200 for the same quarter a year ago. Retail Sales continue to be impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, which forced several of our customer’s stores to temporarily close during this fiscal year. We expect sales to increase in this division during the upcoming quarters as customers are able to reopen stores.

Mr. White concluded, “Our sales growth during the first nine months of fiscal 2021 generated significant earnings growth and significant positive cashflows from operations.  We ended the quarter with more than $31.4 million of cash on our balance sheet. We expect to use the majority of this cash flow generated to invest in additional inventory to support our increased sales volumes, to pay down debt and return excess cash to our shareholders in the form of dividends. Our Board has again approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per share. The fourth quarter dividend of $0.10 will be paid on or around March 11, 2021 to shareholders of record on February 23, 2021. As I have continued to say for years, Educational Development Corporation is a great company to work for and a great company to own.”
