PURE Bioscience Reports Fiscal 2020

Financial Results

 

Achieves Annual Profit for First Time in Company’s History on Revenue of $6.9 million

 

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA (October 8, 2020) – PURE Bioscience, Inc.

(OTCQB: PURE), creator of the patented non-toxic silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) antimicrobial, today reported financial results for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2020.

 

Summary of Results – Year-End Operations

 

  Net product sales were $6,917,000 and $1,909,000 for the fiscal years ended July 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The increase of $5,008,000 was attributable to increased sales across our distribution and end-user network servicing the food processing, transportation and janitorial industry.
  Net income for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2020 was $4,000, compared to a net loss of ($6.6 million) for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2019. Net income, excluding interest expense, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation and warrant inducement expense, for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2020 was $982,000, compared to a net loss of ($2.9 million) for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2019.
  Net income per share was $0.00 for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2020, compared to a net loss of ($0.09) for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2019.
  Gross margin, as a percentage of net product sales, was 58% and 62% for the fiscal years ended July 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The decrease in gross margin percentage was primarily attributable to the sale of higher margin formulations and packaging configurations of our products during the fiscal year ended July 31, 2019, compared to the fiscal year ended July 31, 2020.
  Net cash provided by operations for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2020 was $669,000, compared to net cash used of ($3.0 million) for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2019.

 

Business Update

 

  PURE® Hard Surface
     
    o Food Processing and Manufacturing: Our distribution network is now servicing hundreds of protein, produce, bakery and dairy facilities across the United States. Additional expansion continues with our distribution network supported by internal sales technicians.
    o Transportation Sanitization: PURE’s Transport Sanitation Solution, designed to meet the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements, added multiple transportation companies as users, including three major companies in the channel, for a total of six of the nation’s largest food transportation companies servicing restaurant chains, food processors and grocery store chains.
    o Our janitorial and cleaning distributors are now servicing numerous federal and municipal facilities, as well as school districts and universities across the country. We have made great in-roads in this channel with the help of our regional distributors as part of a national push to provide superior efficacy with an EPA-approved, no-rinse disinfectant.

 

  PURE Control®
     
    o PURE Control is now being used to treat berries, tomatoes and pre-cut lettuce across several processors as a further step to protect America’s food chain. Expansion plans continue with current users and new customers.
    o Work is ongoing with several processors for using PURE Control to enhance the protection of fruit, herbs, onions, broccoli and other processed vegetables.

 

 

 

 

Tom Y. Lee, Chief Executive Officer, said that, “Fiscal 2020 was a breakout year for PURE. We achieved both profitability and positive cash flow from operations. Due to our partnership with Packers Sanitation Services, Inc. (PSSI) and our alliances with Whiting Systems, Inc. and Marathon Group, LLC, various industries are now aware of the numerous benefits of using PURE Hard Surface.

 

“Over the coming months our focus is to expand our PURE Hard Surface end-user and distribution network. Expansion is underway with our janitorial distributors servicing federal government agencies, municipal buildings and school districts across the country. We view this as a tremendous growth opportunity over the coming year. In addition, we intend to grow our current partnerships and alliances while expanding into other markets such as dairy and the GSA Ability One Program, the government procurement program that provides employment opportunities to individuals with disabilities.

 

“We view PURE Control as another growth opportunity during fiscal 2021. In addition to current treatment of pre-cut lettuce, berries and tomatoes, we are now being tested on numerous different forms of produce, showing efficacious results. Expansion and market acceptance is currently underway, as we have received all necessary regulatory approvals for PURE Control in produce,” concluded Lee.

Modified EBITDA

 

In addition to our GAAP results, we present Modified EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance. However, Modified EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, income from operations or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. We define Modified EBITDA as net income (loss), plus interest expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and warrant inducement expense.

 

Management considers our core operating performance to be that which our managers can affect in any particular period through their management of the resources that affect our underlying revenue and profit generating operations during that period. Non-GAAP adjustments to our results prepared in accordance with GAAP are itemized below. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating Modified EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. Our presentation of Modified EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

 

Set forth below is a reconciliation of net loss to Modified EBITDA for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2020 and 2019:

 

   July 31, 
   2020   2019 
Net income (loss)  $4,000   $(6,554,000)
Add (deduct)          
Other (income) expense       5,000 
Depreciation and amortization   191,000    241,000 
Inducement to exercise warrants        960,000 
Stock-based compensation   787,000    2,449,000 
Modified EBITDA  $982,000   $(2,899,000)

 

We present Modified EBITDA because we believe it assists investors and analysts in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. In addition, we use Modified EBITDA in developing our internal budgets, forecasts and strategic plan; in analyzing the effectiveness of our business strategies in evaluating potential acquisitions; making compensation decisions; and in communications with our board of directors concerning our financial performance. Modified EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, which includes, among others, the following:

 

  Modified EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
     
  Modified EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
     
  Modified EBITDA does not reflect future interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debts; and
     
  Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Modified EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements.
