NEWAGE REPORTS 9% FIRST QUARTER REVENUE GROWTH

WITH HIGHEST Q1 REVENUE PERFORMANCE IN ITS HISTORY

 

  - Q1 2020 net revenue was nearly $64 million, an increase of 9% versus prior year, 6% of which was organic growth
  - Gross margin reached 65%, a significant increase versus prior quarters in the second half of 2019 as product, channel mix, and product profitability improved
  - Key markets of China, Japan, and North America saw growth versus the first quarter of 2019. Online ordering and direct-to-home fulfillment model resonating worldwide

 

DENVER, COLORADO, May 11, 2020 – New Age Beverages Corporation (Nasdaq: NBEV),

the Colorado-based healthy products company dedicated to inspiring and educating the planet to “live healthy”, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020, reaching its highest level of first quarter net revenue in its history at $63.7 million.

 

Key Highlights

 

  - Net revenue was $63.7 million versus $58.3 million in the prior year quarter, an increase of $5.4 million or 9.2%
  - Gross margin reached 65.2%, up 1,085 basis points sequentially versus the fourth quarter of 2019
  - Net loss was $11.6 million, or $0.14 per common share

 

“We saw growth in our core large markets and core large category platforms during the quarter,” said Brent Willis, Chief Executive Officer of NewAge. “Our Noni by NewAge segment saw excellent growth led by China and the European market. We also experienced renewed growth in Japan compared to the first quarter of 2019 and our Direct Store Distribution division had its best first quarter in history with double digit growth.”

 

“We have had a number of business disruptions and negative impacts from COVID-19 in markets worldwide, which has continued into the second quarter of 2020. Sales and distribution to on-premise and foodservice outlets are down over 70% between January and April. Many retailers have significantly curtailed any new product initiatives, and in-store merchandising has been virtually impossible. In our Noni by NewAge segment, our ability to hold group meetings and engage in peer-to-peer selling has dramatically changed, but despite all the challenges, the organization has responded decisively to offset the negative impacts. The incremental sales of our immunity strengthening products, the rapid expansion of our e-commerce and social selling tools, and other initiatives have not just offset the negative revenue impacts, but also resulted in overall growth worldwide of more than 9%. I am so proud of all of our associates and business partners with how quickly they have responded to the new operating environment.”

 

Mr. Willis went on to add, “We have focused intently on the health and safety of our employees and partners and adjusted our operations to meet recommended government guidelines. We sincerely appreciate the efforts of all our associates in rapidly adapting and excelling in these unprecedented times.”

 

 
 

 

 

“We believe we are well-positioned to emerge from the current environment and capitalize on current and future opportunities given that the vast majority of our Noni by NewAge segment’s revenue is ordered and fulfilled online and delivered direct to consumer’s homes. We are seeing strong response from our immunity products, our new Noni plus shots, and our new Te Mana Shape intermittent fasting smoothies. We still see challenges across our business from COVID-19, but remain confident in both our near-term and long-term growth outlooks,” continued Brent Willis, Chief Executive Officer of NewAge.

 

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

 

During the first quarter of 2020, net revenue increased 9.2% to $63.7 million compared to $58.3 million in the first quarter of 2019. Gross profit in the first quarter of 2020 increased 7.6% to $41.5 million compared to $38.6 million in the first quarter of 2019. Gross margin reached 65% for the first quarter of 2020, compared to a gross margin of 66%, 63%, 58% and 54% respectively for each of the quarters in 2019. The improvement in gross margin compared to the second half of 2019 was due primarily to an improvement in product and channel mix, with more business coming from higher margin Direct to Consumer and E-commerce channels.

 

Net loss was $11.6 million, or $0.14 per share, during the first quarter of 2020 compared to a net loss of $1.6 million, or $0.02 per share, in the first quarter of 2019. The increase in net loss was significantly impacted by a gain of sale of property of $6.4 million accounted for in the first quarter of 2019, as well as increased selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses as a result of increased staffing, marketing and professional fees.

 

Adjusted EBITDA(1) was a loss of $7.1 million for the quarter, a significant sequential improvement of $10.3 million compared to Q4 2019. The adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter of 2019 was $3.9 which included the gain on the sale of property of $6.4 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

The primary purpose of using non-GAAP financial measures is to provide supplemental information that we believe may be useful to investors and to enable investors to evaluate our results in the same way we do. We also present the non-GAAP financial measures because we believe they assist investors in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis, as well as comparing our results against the results of other companies, by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Specifically, we use these non-GAAP measures as measures of operating performance; to prepare our annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of our business; to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies; to provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance; to facilitate a comparison of our results with those of other companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results; and in communications with our board of directors concerning our financial performance. Investors should be aware, however, that not all companies define these non-GAAP measures consistently.

 

We provide in the table below a reconciliation from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to the non-GAAP financial measures presented.

 

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. The calculation of our EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is presented below (in thousands):

 

   2020   2019 
         
Net loss  $(11,618)  $(1,616)
EBITDA Non-GAAP adjustments:          
Interest expense   572    1,646 
Income tax expense (benefit)   723    (1,700)
Depreciation and amortization expense   1,879    2,236 
           
EBITDA   (8,444)   566 
Adjusted EBITDA Non-GAAP adjustment:          
Stock-based compensation expense   1,357    3,287 
           
Adjusted EBITDA  $(7,087)  $3,853 

 

EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude GAAP amounts for interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), and depreciation and amortization expense. For the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, we also exclude the following item for the periods presented:

 

Stock-Based Compensation Expense: Our compensation strategy includes the use of stock-based compensation to attract and retain employees, directors and consultants. This strategy is principally aimed at aligning the employee interests with those of our stockholders and to achieve long-term employee retention, rather than to motivate or reward operational performance for any particular period. As a result, stock-based compensation expense varies for reasons that are generally unrelated to operational decisions and performance in any particular period.
