CafePress Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results13:15 EST Wednesday, November 07, 2012 Net Revenues Increase 19% Year Over Year Closes EZ Prints Acquisition to Extend E-Commerce Services LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 7, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CafePress Inc. (Nasdaq:PRSS), The World's Customization EngineTM, today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012. "Third quarter revenue was driven by strong demand for customized products across all CafePress brands. To manage this growth we doubled the size of our flagship manufacturing facility in Kentucky during the quarter," said Chief Executive Officer Bob Marino. "Revenue from our Marketplace and large corporate shops was solid, we launched new social, mobile and licensed content programs, and average order size benefitted from strong wall art sales and purchases by groups. These trends were offset by lower revenue from small shops, and our bottom line was impacted by enhanced levels of promotional activity and additional expenses related to increased manufacturing capacity. Looking ahead, we believe that the addition of software technology from the recent EZ Prints acquisition will enable us to more efficiently build and scale large corporate shops, fuel traffic growth and further our reach by opening up CafePress' massive content library to a wider audience across the internet."Third Quarter 2012 Financial Highlights Net revenues totaled $43.6 million, compared to $36.6 million in the third quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA was $1.4 million, compared to $2.4 million in the third quarter of 2011. Gross profit margin was 41.4% of net revenues, compared to 43.1% in the third quarter of 2011.
