Alliance Media Holdings Reports Financial Results For The Three And Nine Months Ended March 31, 2017

NEW YORK, June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliance Media Holdings Inc. (OTC-Pink: ADTR), a distributor, developer and publisher of interactive video games and gaming products, today announced its financial results for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2017.

Net revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2017 decreased 41% to $8.2 million from $14 million in the three months ended March 31, 2016.  The Company lost $733,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to net income of $10,000 for the comparable period in 2016.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2017 net revenues decreased 30% to $31.5 million from $44.8 in the nine months ended March 31, 2016.  The Company lost $836,000 for the nine months ended March 31, 2017 compared to net income of $298,000 for the comparable period in 2016. 

Jay Gelman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We were disappointed with our financial results in the quarter ended March 31, 2017. The results principally reflect the same factors as in recent quarters – there continue to be too few new products and value opportunities. This was coupled with weak overall video game sales at retail and a developing trend to delay new product releases to the holiday season."

Gelman continued, "We continue to look for ways to enhance our box distribution business through various initiatives, including shifting resources to accommodate fulfillment work for major retailers. At the same time, we are convinced that the industry as a whole is moving towards digital and streaming alternatives, and that this change will impact our financial performance sooner rather than later. The shift will accelerate with evolving technology. There is also the possibility that a large player might enter the market to further disrupt the box business.

"In the past several years we have taken a number of steps in anticipation of these changes. We began by obtaining Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo publisher licenses to publish games developed by others. Games such as Pinball Arcade, Brunswick Bowling, Giana Sisters, and Stern Pinball are part of this portfolio. We continue to seek new publishing opportunities although our revenue share to date has not been significant.

"In 2016, we announced our initiative to enter into alliances with independent game developers to publish, market and own equity interests in multi-platform video games. Our two initial game launches did not succeed financially but they allowed us to execute the entire process and both were met with critical praise.

"These efforts positioned us in May 2016 to acquire Zachtronics and its team headed by Zach Barth. Zachtronics was an independent developer that had a reputation as a quality operator and had launched several successful games. Zachtronics games contributed roughly $1,000,000 in revenues for the current fiscal year to date."

Mr. Gelman concluded, "We expect our traditional distribution business to continue to be quite impactful in the near term despite its shrinking footprint. Ultimately, the future of our company will depend on the success of our digital and content initiative, and our ability to fund its growth and further development."
