State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
Mandalay Digital Group, Inc. (the Company) could not complete its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2012 on or before the November 14, 2012 prescribed due date without unreasonable effort or expense due to delays in gathering, compiling, analyzing, disclosing and reviewing the information required to complete the preparation of financial disclosures relating to its acquisition of Logia Content Development and Management Ltd., Volas Entertainment Ltd.

PART IV OTHER INFORMATION
|(1)||Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification|
|Dan L. Halvorson||(818)||301-6231|
|(Name)||(Area Code)||(Telephone Number)|
|(2)||Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed ? If answer is no, identify report(s). x Yes ¨ No|
|(3)||Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof? x Yes ¨ No|
If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.
The Company anticipates reporting net revenues of approximately $0.9 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to net revenues of $1.9 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2011. The anticipated revenue decline is the result of multiple factors, mainly comprised of the effect of an increase in the use of smart phones over feature phones, which hinder the carriers ability to monetize content revenues effectively, as well as internal changes at the carrier level, although the Company does not expect this decline to continue because of strategic changes in mix of the Companys products available to the market.
The Company anticipates reporting a gross profit of approximately $0.5 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to gross profits of $1.2 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2011. Our licensing agreements are predominantly on a revenue-share basis, and have therefore decreased proportionately to the decrease in revenue, resulting in a relative decrease in gross profit. We experienced lower revenues during the quarter due to a decision to discontinue advertising revenues and from the decrease in costs that normally drive traffic to certain revenue streams, and this decreased our gross margin.
The Company anticipates reporting a net loss of approximately $3.8 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 as compared to a net loss of $0.9 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2011. The anticipated increase in net loss is primarily attributable to an increase in stock compensation expense, additional headcount and contractors in an effort to build the infrastructure necessary to launch new products into the market, and legal and accounting fees relative to our M&A activities.
The Company anticipates reporting a net loss per common share of approximately $0.04 for the three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to a net loss per common share of $0.02 for the three months ended September 30, 2011.
