MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / November 14, 2019 / Dolphin Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ:DLPN), a leading independent entertainment marketing and premium content development company, announces its financial results for the period ended September 30, 2019.

Bill O'Dowd, CEO of Dolphin Entertainment, commented: "We are pleased to share that Dolphin exceeded consensus expectations in both revenue and earnings per share in the third quarter, which we attribute to the increased cross-selling of services between members of our Entertainment Marketing "Super Group." Our investments in these companies have led to our double-digit revenue growth through the first nine months of 2019, and we anticipate positive net income on a going-forward basis. Also, we took important steps on the M&A front, and we expect that we will have our fourth acquisition finished shortly, and that we are on target to complete the acquisition of all 6 "core competency" members of our Entertainment Marketing "Super Group" on schedule within 2020, which we believe will increase our cross-selling opportunities and accelerate growth of both revenues and profits."
