Tofutti Announces First Quarter Results

CRANFORD, N.J., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. (NYSE MKT Symbol: TOF) today announced its results for the thirteen week period ended March 30, 2013.

The Company reported net sales for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2013 of approximately $3.4 million compared with net sales of $3.3 million for the thirteen weeks ended March 31, 2012. 

For the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2013, the Company reported a loss of $262,000 before income taxes as compared with a loss of $340,000 before income taxes for the comparable 2012 period.  The Company also reported that its gross profit increased to $1,004,000 in the period ended March 30, 2013 from $813,000 in the period ended March 31, 2012 due primarily to the higher sales level.  The Company's gross profit percentage increased to 29% for the period ending March 30, 2013 compared to 25% for the period ending March 31, 2012.  The increase in the Company's gross profit percentage was due primarily to price increases in certain product categories during the first quarter of 2013 and the absence in 2013 of certain promotional allowance programs that were in place during the 2012 period. 

The Company had a net loss for the thirteen weeks ended March 30, 2013 of $268,000, or $0.05 per share, compared to a net loss of $210,000, or $0.04 per share, for the thirteen week period ended March 31, 2012.  As of March 30, 2013, the Company had approximately $454,000 in cash and cash equivalents, and its working capital was approximately $3.3 million.

Mr. David Mintz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company stated, "Our results for the first quarter of 2013 reflect our efforts to improve our sales. We believe that our sales and gross margins will continue to improve during the remainder of fiscal 2013 due to the introduction of new products and price increases instituted in the first and second quarters of the year. The price increases, which range from 5% to 10%,  will become effective at various times in the second and third quarters of this year.  We are optimistic about introducing our mozzarella dairy-free cheese into the chain restaurant pizza marketplace, offering a dairy-free cheese topping for lactose intolerant consumers."
