The report provides buy and sell side market analysts, retail and institutional investors with a complete, objective, and professional analysis of Genius Brands' business model, along with an assessment of the company's stock as it trades today and where the analysts expect it to be trading at over the next five years.

Calculated using the Bullworthy Composite Valuation Model (BCVM), the firm's coverage of GNUS has been initiated with a "BUY" rating, supported by a conservative six-month price target of $.42 per share; a 18-month price target of $1.79 per share; and a longer-term price target of $4 per share.

The proprietary BCVM developed in-house among the firm's analysts employs projected price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios and the value of a discounted cash flow (DCF) model to evaluate the future value of GNUS shares. The variables used by analysts are always conservative estimates to establish and retain credibility and trust with retail investors who follow Bullworthy analysts and the content they create both on and off Genius Brands' exclusive Issuer Profile.

Of particular value for both potential investors and shareholders interested in the 30-page report is the Projected Financial Performance section, which documents a detailed revenue forecast model for the next five years, broken down by product segments, presented as full income statements including estimations for earnings per share (EPS) and shares outstanding.

Bullworthy, LLC analysts write in the report that Genius Brands "Will be debt free in 2014 and that cash flow from operations will be sufficient to finance operations and growth from that year forward." This solid financial footing should allow the company to grow earnings per share at a rate of more 40% a year over the next five calendar years, analyst project.

Genius Brands is a long-time developer and marketer of secondary educational products spanning various categories, including high-margin children's DVDs and CDs distributed through partners like iTunes and Groupon, under the award-winning Baby Genius brand.

Analysts suggest in the report that yesterday's announcement of a partnership with Nokia under which the company will create and distribute an exclusive line of interactive apps featuring branded Baby Genius characters is just the beginning of a massive shift in the company's focus, from physical retail to digital content delivery for kids, parents, and their friends and families. The announcement gave analysts significant confidence to suggest similarly-sized deals in scale and scope are likely to be announced in the near future, the report says.
