FAB Universal (NYSE MKT: FU), a worldwide distributor of digital
entertainment, today announced financial results for the third quarter
ending September 30, 2012.
Total revenue for the third quarter was $1,745,015 compared with
$834,065 in the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 109%. FAB
Universal achieved a gross profit of $960,789 for the third quarter of
2012, versus a gross profit of $527,607 in the third quarter of 2011, an
increase of 82%.
The third quarter results were highlighted by a strong performance by
FAB Universal’s Podcasting business which grew revenues 45%. Overall
Media revenues were up 178% in large part due to the inclusion of 4 days
of revenues from our acquisition of Digital Entertainment Intl (“FAB”).
Operating expenses totaled $5,744,877, a 436% increase from operating
expenses of $1,070,904 in the third quarter of 2011. The increase is due
to acquisition related costs, one time non-cash expenses related to
issuing stock, and other non-cash expenses. Non-cash expenses alone were
$4.3 million of the overall expenses. The majority of these expenses
were related to the FAB acquisition and are non reoccurring.
Net loss available to common shareholders, including non-cash and
acquisition related expenses, was $4,951,273 or $0.51 per share, in the
quarter ended September 30, 2012.
“In the third quarter of 2012, FAB Universal closed its acquisition of
Digital Entertainment Intl becoming a $75,000,000+ million dollar annual
revenue company, says Chris Spencer, FAB Universal CEO. “We spun off our
healthcare operations to shareholders subsequent to the end of the third
quarter and we grew our revenues substantially. It was a very busy,
productive and successful quarter. We expect the next several quarters
will be just as productive and successful as well.”

Universal’s 2012 third quarter 10Q filing. For a complete and detailed
