RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2009) - BFS Entertainment & Multimedia Limited (TSX VENTURE:BFS) of Richmond Hill, Ontario, announced its unaudited consolidated financial and operating results for the first quarter ended August 1, 2009.

Sales for the quarter were $2,316,575 compared to $1,967,096 during the same quarter last year, an increase of 18%. Net loss for the quarter was $144,447 ($0.02 per share) compared with a net loss of $157,153 ($0.02 per share) in the same quarter last year.

Denis B.E. Donnelly, President and CEO, stated, "During the first quarter of fiscal 2010, we were able to successfully grow our sales revenue by 18% in a recessionary global economy and we remain positive for the balance of this year. As the majority of our customers are in the United States, the strengthening Canadian dollar against the United States dollar has had an unfavourable impact on our first quarter results."
