BFS Entertainment & Multimedia Limited Announces Results for Fiscal 2011

RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 29, 2011) - 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 7, 2011.

Sales for the fiscal year ended May 7, 2011 were $11,622,876 compared to $12,515,414 for the previous fiscal year.

Net loss for the fiscal year was $226,984 or $0.03 per share, compared to a net income of $113,602 or $0.02 per share for the previous fiscal year.

Denis B.E. Donnelly, President and CEO stated, "Sales decreased 7% this year compared to the previous year primarily due to a reduction in sales to one of BFS' major distributors. This and the falling value of the United States dollar versus the Canadian dollar contributed to the current year's losses. We are confident that our new 2012 licensed programming and expanded direct to consumer offerings will improve BFS' outlook for 2012 and beyond."
