RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2012) - BFS Entertainment & Multimedia Limited (TSX VENTURE:BFS) of Richmond Hill, Ontario, announces its audited consolidated financial and operating results for the fiscal year ended May 5, 2012.

Sales for the fiscal year were $9,518,360 compared to $11,622,876 last year. Net loss for the fiscal year was $521,588 ($0.07 per share) compared to a net loss of $226,984 ($0.03 per share) for the same period last year.

Denis B.E. Donnelly, President and CEO stated, "The United States economic downturn continued to have a negative impact on our revenues and earnings over last year. Our gross sales were $10,089,941 for the year, but were negatively impacted by a $571,581 provision for an overstock return of resalable products from prior years' sales to a corporate customer, resulting in net sales for the year of $9,518,360. Going forward, we have made significant reductions in our direct-to-consumer advertising initiatives and overhead expenses. We remain confident that positive earnings will return for fiscal 2013."
