TU students win business contest

EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT CORP.
TULSA — Educational Development Corp. on Wednesday reported net earnings of $357,600, or 9 cents a share, for fiscal year 2014. That is down from $802,900, or 20 cents a share, for last year, despite a $600,000 increase in net revenue. Earnings dipped because of additional reserves to recognize potential losses and nonperforming assets, but the children’s book seller said it continues to operate with minimal debt. The company will pay a cash dividend of 8 cents per share on June 20.
