Where Food Comes From, Inc. Reports 2020 First Quarter Financial Results

 

CASTLE ROCK, Colorado – August 13, 2020 – Where Food Comes From, Inc. (WFCF) (OTCQB: WFCF), the most trusted resource for independent, third-party verification of food production practices in North America, today announced its 2020 second quarter and six-month financial results.

 

“We are very pleased with our overall performance in light of the continuing impact of COVID-19 on our business,” said John Saunders, chairman and CEO. “Although auditing activity with pork, poultry, dairy and egg customers was down significantly due to their restrictions on outside visitation in more enclosed environments, our beef verification business was strong in the quarter due to less stringent visitation restrictions on cattle ranches, which are more remote, outdoor operations with fewer employees. And despite widespread slowdowns and shutdowns at beef processing facilities, demand for animals we verified to standards such as source, NHTC, natural and CARE® remained consistent. Product sales were also strong in the quarter, up 25% year over year. We continued to generate positive cash flows from operations in the second quarter and have strengthened our balance sheet year-to-date with a 65% increase in cash and short-term investments.

 

“I’m proud of the effort put forth by our entire team in responding to the unique challenges presented by the pandemic in the first half of 2020,” Saunders added. “These challenges have carried into the second half of the year and we believe we’ll continue to meet them in innovative ways that keep our business moving forward. I’m also pleased to report good initial traction of our Where Food Comes From CARE® suite of sustainability standards launched earlier this year – particularly our BeefCARE™ program, which has been adopted by two global food processing companies to verify sustainable production practices on millions of acres of domestic cattle grazing land.”

 

Second Quarter Results – 2020 vs. 2019

 

Revenue in the second quarter ended June 30, 2020, decreased 10% to $4.4 million from $4.9 million in the same quarter last year. Lower revenue was attributed to fewer on-site audits conducted primarily for poultry, pork, dairy and egg customers. Revenue mix included:

  Product revenue, up 25% to $796,000 from $635,000.

*Note on non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

This press release and the accompanying tables include a discussion of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures provided as a complement to the results provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The term “EBITDA” refers to a financial measure that we define as earnings (net income or loss) plus or minus net interest plus taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA excludes from EBITDA stock-based compensation and, when appropriate, other items that management does not utilize in assessing WFCF’s operating performance (as further described in the attached financial schedules). None of these non-GAAP financial measures are recognized terms under GAAP and do not purport to be an alternative to net income as an indicator of operating performance or any other GAAP measure. We have reconciled Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income in the Consolidated Statements of Income table at the end of this release. We intend to continue to provide these non-GAAP financial measures as part of our future earnings discussions and, therefore, the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures will provide consistency in our financial reporting.

*Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures: Non-GAAP results are presented only as a supplement to the financial statements and for use within management’s discussion and analysis based on U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial information is provided to enhance the reader’s understanding of the Company’s financial performance, but non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of the most directly comparable GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures are provided herein.

 

All of the items included in the reconciliation from net income to EBITDA and from EBITDA to Adjusted EBITDA are either (i) non-cash items (e.g., depreciation, amortization of purchased intangibles, stock-based compensation, etc.) or (ii) items that management does not consider to be useful in assessing the Company’s ongoing operating performance (e.g., M&A costs, income taxes, gain on sale of investments, loss on disposal of assets, etc.). In the case of the non-cash items, management believes that investors can better assess the Company’s operating performance if the measures are presented without such items because, unlike cash expenses, these adjustments do not affect the Company’s ability to generate free cash flow or invest in its business.

 

We use, and we believe investors benefit from the presentation of, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in evaluating our operating performance because it provides us and our investors with an additional tool to compare our operating performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect our core operations. We believe that EBITDA is useful to investors and other external users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance because EBITDA is widely used by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items such as interest expense, taxes, and depreciation and amortization, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired.

 

Because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company’s presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. However, these measures can still be useful in evaluating the Company’s performance against its peer companies because management believes the measures provide users with valuable insight into key components of GAAP financial disclosures.
