“The Company’s third quarter results are not acceptable in terms of what we aim to deliver for our shareholders,” said Chris Mottern, Interim CEO. “There were a number of unexpected costs and execution issues in the period that negatively impacted the Company’s financial results. Given these issues and our year-to-date results, we are taking a cautious approach in our outlook and are updating our targeted Adjusted EBITDA range for fiscal 2019 to $34 million to $36 million.”

Mottern continued, “We have already begun taking corrective actions, putting new operational controls and processes in place, and will be working to determine what additional steps we need to take to put Farmer Brothers on the path to improved results and enhanced value for our shareholders. We continue to believe in the underlying long-term earnings power of Farmer Brothers’ business, and we are operating with a sense of urgency.”
