TOFUTTI ANNOUNCES RESULTS FOR THIRTEEN WEEKS ENDED MARCH 31, 2018

 

Company Reports Net Income of $327,000 Compared to

Net Loss of $173,000 in Prior Year

 

Cranford, New Jersey — May 15, 2018 — TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. (OTCQB Symbol: TOFB) issued its results for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018 today.

 

Net sales for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018 increased by $491,000, or 15%, to $3,774,000, from net sales of $3,283,000 for the thirteen weeks ended April 1, 2017. The Company reported net income of $327,000 ($0.06 per share) compared to a net loss of $173,000 ($0.03 per share) for the thirteen weeks ended April 1, 2017.

 

Sales of vegan-cheese products increased to $3,132,000 in the 2018 period from $2,628,000 in the 2017 period. Sales of the Company’s vegan cheese product line increased due to an increase in both its export and domestic cheese business. Sales of frozen dessert and frozen food products, which consist primarily of frozen dessert products, decreased to $642,000 in the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2018 from $655,000 for the thirteen weeks ended April 1, 2017. The frozen dessert business continues to be negatively impacted by the overall sluggish sales in the ice cream category. Additionally, in September 2016, the co-packer who manufactured the Company’s frozen dessert novelty products ceased manufacturing its stick novelties and Yours Truly Cones in June 2017. The unavailability of these items negatively impacted sales of the Company’s frozen desserts. The Company recently engaged a new manufacturing facility to produce these frozen dessert novelty products and expects to be in production in the second half of this year. Tofutti Cutie sales were not impacted as a new production facility was secured for this product.

 

The Company’s gross profit percentage increased to 34% for the period ending March 31, 2018 compared to 31% for the period ending April 1, 2017. The increase in the gross profit percentage was primarily due to a decrease in sales allowance expense as a percentage of gross sales to 9% in the first quarter of 2018 compared to 11% in the first quarter of 2017 and from the increase in sales of vegan cheese products whose profit margin is greater than the Company’s frozen dessert products.

 

 

 

 

As of March 31, 2018, 2018, the Company had approximately $761,000 in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $4,039,000, compared with approximately $1,414,000 in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $3,721,000 at December 30, 2017. The decrease in cash during the first quarter of 2018 is due to the increase in inventories to support increased sales and an increase in accounts receivable arising from such sales.

 

“I am pleased to report a strong first quarter on the heels of our improved results for fiscal 2017 as compared to fiscal 2016. We continue to see strong growth and new opportunities for our vegan cheese product line, which is a category leader, and expect to introduce a new line of vegan dips and shredded cheddar and mozzarella soy cheeses in the third quarter of this year. The introduction of these new products and the realization of price increases that were instituted in the last year are expected to maintain our margins for the remainder of 2018. We also expect to be able to offer a full line of frozen dessert products this summer season,” concluded David Mintz, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Tofutti Brands.
