The Singing Machine Company, Inc. (“Singing Machine” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: MICS) – the worldwide leader in consumer karaoke products, today announced a significant new milestone in its partnership with leading music, media and technology company, Stingray Group, Inc. (“Stingray”), for their shared karaoke subscription service. For 2023, the Stingray-Singing Machine subscription service generated a record $3.28 million in gross sales, representing a 34.8% increase over the prior calendar year subscription sales. As part of its agreement with Stingray, the Company’s profit share is calculated after deducting all costs of goods sold (COGS) and expenses associated with maintaining this service. Consequently, the Company records net sales on music subscription sales at approximately 100% gross margin.

“We are excited to report that subscription sales generated very strong results for the Company in 2023,” commented Gary Atkinson, CEO of the Singing Machine. “We launched the first subscription- based music service in a pilot product offered only at Costco for the Christmas of 2021, and we have been very encouraged by the rapid acceptance of this service by consumers as we expanded the product placement in more retail locations globally.”

Atkinson added, “I’m pleased with the adoption of our karaoke music subscription service, powered by our strategic partner, Stingray. This milestone in subscription revenue supports our belief that consumers are willing to pay for high quality ad-free karaoke videos and unique karaoke features like turning lead vocals on/off, a companion-app to remotely control your karaoke party, and access to over 100,000 songs across 25 different languages.”

“In 2023, approximately 5% of our hardware unit sales included this integrated Wi-Fi streaming music subscription service. In 2024, we see the mix of Wi-Fi streaming products doubling to approximately 10%, led by stronger retail demand for higher-priced, higher-featured karaoke products. With the expansion of our Wi-Fi streaming line, we project our net music subscription sales, which have virtually no COGS or SG&A expenses associated with it, to grow proportionally with the forecasted increase in unit sales,” concluded Mr. Atkinson.
