The shocking and true story of Mexico's secret conspiracy!

BORRAR DE LA MEMORIA ("Erased from Memory") is the award winning and hugely successful Mexican theatrical release that dared to take on their government and expose the conspiracy that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of protesting students in 1968.  Now, with today's current news headlines mirroring an equally sinister theme of government corruption (and the death of innocent youths in Mexico) the timing for this film has never been better.

Hannover House is releasing BORRAR DE LA MEMORIA to theatres in key markets beginning August 28, and will have videos ready by Q4 shipment.

Mexican box office grosses convert into $1.6-mm US Dollars, and over 800,000 admissions, making this film as one of the top independent theatrical releases of the year in Mexico.

Hannover House and the newly launched PELICULAS FANTASTICO"' releasing label have had solid success recently with Spanish-language DVD releases.  Currently on sale at WALMART nationwide are ASALTO AL CINE and ANTONIO AGUILAR COLECION.

The theatrical momentum and subject matter of BORRAR DE LA MEMORIA should make turn this into the Company's best selling Spanish release to date!

Expansion Into In-House DVD and BluRay Replication

In a strategic move to lower cost-of-goods, lower freight times and increase both revenue and efficiencies, Hannover House will announce today the capital investment and operational expansion into in-house, DVD and Blu-Ray replication.

For the past twelve years, HHSE physical video products have been manufactured for the Company by a variety of third-party suppliers (most of which are located in California). As the Company's sales volume and catalog have grown significantly over the past few months, the benefits of obtaining DVD and BluRay products both faster and cheaper became clear. 

HHSE believes that the cost for launching this new internal manufacturing activity will be recouped in less than 90-days - and will quickly turn into a positive revenue source from margins generated by providing manufacturing services to supplier studios under the Medallion Releasing multi-studio distribution venture.

Watch for a formal, wire services press release today!

Hannover House and Medallion Catalog Sales to Benefit from Newly Added, In-House DVD and BluRay Manufacturing Capability

(Springdale, AR)  Hannover House, Inc. (OTC: HHSE), a leading U.S.A. producer and distributor of independent films, books and entertainment products, is taking a bold step forward in the company’s development with the addition of in-house DVD and BluRay manufacturing equipment.  The new video production line is designed specifically to service the company’s rapidly growing catalog of DVD and BluRay titles, with the higher-volume, new release manufacturing duties still expected to be handled by larger manufacturing facilities. 
 
At present, Hannover House and Medallion Releasing titles are being manufactured by CD Video in Santa Ana, CA, Encore Media Services in Valencia, CA, and SONY DADC in Bolingbrook, IL.  The addition of in-house DVD and BluRay manufacturing capability at Hannover’s primary offices in Springdale, AR, will enable the company to manufacture catalog and deep list titles on an as-needed basis, and is expected to improve the company’s turn-around time, margins and placement rates.

“As our catalog has grown to over 300 titles, the need for quick turn-around on short-run video orders has grown exponentially,” said Fred Shefte, President.  “The major replication houses prefer to focus on larger orders of 20,000 or more units at a time, which is great for our frontline releases, but it does not work for older, backlist titles.  Rather than over-order on catalog inventory - and tie-up our working capital for a long period of time – this new in-house replication equipment will enable us to profitably and quickly manufacture to order on an as needed basis.  We believe that this will free-up cash flow, improve our order fulfillment times, cut down on freight and ultimately become a revenue source as we make this short-run replication service available to the Medallion Releasing supplier labels,” he concluded.

Hannover House and Medallion Releasing supplier labels have released 38 titles already during the first half of 2015, and are expected to collectively exceed 90 titles by year’s end.  This volume of new releases and catalog promotions represents a massive increase over 2013 and 2014, which each saw less than eight new release titles from Hannover House.  The enhanced release slate is being managed by HHSE / Medallion V.P. of Sales, Tom Sims, and Director of Sales Caitlin McKenzie.  The Medallion strategy is to open up access to mass merchants and key video customers to outside supplier studios on a sales fee basis.  The business model is patterned after Vivendi/Universal Music Group, which saw home video revenues expand to more than $180-million annually when Sims implemented a similar business model there.  Primary supplier studios selling DVD and BluRay products under the Medallion Releasing venture include Hannover House, Green Apple, C.M.D., XVIII Entertainment, Ytinifni Films and Fever Dreams.

Key retail accounts for Hannover House and Medallion Releasing include Walmart Stores, Inc., Best Buy, Redbox, Netflix, SAM’s Clubs, Target Stores and thousands of independent video retailers, schools, libraries and booksellers.  The company also sells entertainment products to a wide range of internet sites, and services most major video-on-demand portals. The company has been profitable for each of the past five years, and feels that the 2015 new activities will significantly increase both revenues and bottom line results.  Hannover House stock is traded on the OTC Markets under ticker symbol: HHSE.

Now is our 'Time to Shine' at HHSE

Active July Brings Record Releases, Media Day and New Filings for Hannover House Schedule

(Bentonville, AR)  Hannover House, Inc. (OTC: HHSE), a leading U.S.A. producer and distributor of independent films, books and entertainment products, released information on a series of operational and corporate governance events scheduled for July.

Beginning July 10, the Company will launch its most ambitious theatrical slate ever, with three new titles reaching theatres over a three week period.  “Dark Awakening” – a supernatural themed thriller – will open on July 17, alongside the critically acclaimed and politically charged “The Algerian.”  July 24 will see the launch of the nature docudrama “Bonobos: Back to the Wild.”  Each of these three features will be promoted during a special event “Media Day” and screenings to occur on Wednesday, July 8th in New York.

Revenue results from the ongoing Q2 period ending June 30, 2015 will be released ahead of schedule in mid-July, and the Company feels that the results are further validation of the success being delivered by the enhanced release schedule through Medallion Releasing.  Also in July, the Company plans to refile the Form 10 Registration Statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  A prior draft was withdrawn on May 11, following S.E.C. Comments, including the requirement for the engagement of a different, PCAOB certified auditing firm.

July will also see a record 10 or more DVD titles on sale at major mass merchant accounts for Hannover House, including Walmart, Best Buy and Target.  And last, but not least, the consumer website for VODWIZ, which has been accumulating new titles off-line and off-site for the past few months, is expected to go “live” in July.

“We wish to thank our loyal and long-term supporters at Hannover House for helping us reach these important goals in both product releasing and corporate governance,” said Fred Shefte, President.  “This is our time to shine.”

Key retail accounts for Hannover House include Walmart Stores, Inc., Redbox, Netflix, Barnes & Noble and thousands of independent video retailers, schools, libraries and booksellers.  The company also sells entertainment products to a wide range of internet sites, and services most major video-on-demand portals. The company has been profitable for each of the past five years, and feels that the 2015 new activities will significantly increase both revenues and bottom line results.  Hannover House stock is traded on the OTC Markets under ticker symbol: HHSE.

HOTSTOQX renews strong "BUY" for HHSE

(Reprinted from AccessWire News Service, Monday, June 22, 2015)

Hotstoqx Releases Summary Report and Strong Buy Recommendation for Hannover House, Inc.

(Vancouver, B.C.)  HotStoqx.com, a Vancouver-based investor awareness firm involved in the analysis of publicly-traded companies, has renewed their strong “BUY” recommendation for media distributor Hannover House, Inc. (OTC: HHSE).  HotStoqx has targeted a thirty-day share price target of $.05 – which is about five-times the current trading price – and a six-month / year-end target price of $.22 per share, based on the tremendous increase in product releases for Hannover House, as well as the company’s new video-on-demand streaming venture, VODWIZ. 

A previously announced “BUY” recommendation for Hannover House was suspended by Hotstoqx in mid-May following the company’s withdrawal of a Form 10 Registration filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. However, following an interview last week with Hannover House principals Eric Parkinson (CEO) and Fred Shefte (President), Hotstoqx has renewed its coverage, support and HHSE  recommendation.

“We were very satisfied with the company’s responses to our questions, especially items concerning the revised Form 10 filing and the increasing cash flows from recent sales,” said Tammy Baines of Hotstoqx.  “The issues resulting in the withdrawal of the Form 10 statement were unrelated to Hannover House, and had no impact on the company’s release slate and ongoing revenue achievements. The company is experiencing significant revenue growth from multiple sources, and we feel that the HHSE stock price should appreciate rapidly as the market becomes better informed.”

Hannover House, Inc. has been operating in the publishing and entertainment sectors since 1993, and has grown into a recognized brand name in the releasing of independent films to theatres, DVD, video-on-demand and television.  A new venture to expand the video and V.O.D. release slate was launched in 2014 as Medallion Releasing, Inc., under V.P. of Sales Tom Sims.  The Medallion venture enables other independent film and video distributors to access the Hannover House distribution pipeline to theatres, mass merchants and other media licensors for a fee.  The company has also signed up more than 3,500 titles from twelve supplier studios to support the upcoming consumer roll-out launch of VODWIZ, a movie streaming service specializing in independent films.

Regarding higher-end titles for initial release into theatres, Hannover House has announced eleven films for theatrical release in 2015, which will be supplemented with two additional “wide” release titles for Q4.  The core business of DVD and Blu-Ray releases will set an industry record this year with more than ninety total releases, which represents a substantial increase over 2013 and 2014 which each saw less than eight new video releases for those years.  Q1 Revenues for HHSE were at a record pace, and the company reports that Q2 revenues will continue this trajectory as the company moves into Q3 and Q4, which are traditionally the most lucrative quarters for consumer, home video sales.

Hotstoqx produced and released its initial Research Report in April on Hannover House, which may be obtained by sending an email to:  info@hotstoqx.com.   The previously published report is also available on the OTC Markets site at:  http://www.otcmarkets.com/financialReportViewer?symbol=HHSE&id=136557
