Tofutti Announces Second Quarter and Six Month Results

Aug 11, 2015, 16:15 ET from Tofutti Brands Inc.

CRANFORD, N.J., Aug. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. (NYSE MKT Symbol: TOF) today announced its results for the thirteen and twenty-six week periods ended June 27, 2015.

Tofutti Brands reported net sales for the thirteen weeks ended June 27, 2015 of $3,624,000, an increase of $126,000, or 4%, compared to net sales of $3,498,000 for the thirteen weeks ended June 28, 2014. The increase reflected increased sales  in all three of the Company's food categories, frozen desserts, soy-cheese products and frozen food entree products. Net sales for the twenty-six week period ended June 27, 2015 were $6,767,000, a decrease of $588,000, or 8%, compared to net sales of $7,355,000 for the twenty-six week period ended June 28, 2014.  Sales in the 2015 twenty-six week period declined in most categories due in great measure to the impact of sales allowance discounts that were approximately $441,000 greater than in the corresponding period in 2014. 

The Company's gross profit and gross profit percentage for the thirteen week period ending June 27, 2015 were approximately $1,076,000 and 30%, respectively, compared to $961,000 and 27%, respectively, for the period ending June 28, 2014. The increase in the gross profit and gross profit percentage in the 2015 thirteen week period was due primarily to the increase in sales and the full implementation of price increases over the last 18 months. The Company's gross profit and gross profit percentage for the twenty-six week period ending June 27, 2015 were  $1,822,000 and 27%, respectively, compared to $2,251,000 and 31%, respectively, for the period ending June 28, 2014.  The decrease in the Company's gross profit and gross profit percentage was due primarily to the decrease in sales and the substantial increase in the Company's promotional allowance programs in the twenty-six weeks ended June 27, 2015.

Operating income for the 2015 thirteen week period was negatively impacted by a non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $113,000 arising from the grant of options. The Company reported a loss of $21,000 before income tax expense of $3,000 for the thirteen week period ended June 27, 2015 resulting in a net loss of $24,000 or $0.00 per share.  The Company did not record any income tax expense for the thirteen week period ended June 28, 2014, which resulted in a net loss of $190,000 or $0.04 per share for the thirteen week period ended June 28, 2014. 

The Company reported a loss of $393,000 before income tax expense of $8,000 for the twenty-six week period ended June 27, 2015 compared to a loss of $78,000 before income tax expense of $6,000 for the twenty-six week period ended June 28, 2014. The Company's net loss for the twenty-six weeks ended June 27, 2015 was $401,000, or $0.08 per share, compared to a net loss of $84,000, or $0.02 per share, for the twenty-six weeks ended June 28, 2014.

As of June 27, 2015, the Company had approximately $185,000 in cash and cash equivalents and its working capital was approximately $2.2 million, compared with approximately $341,000 in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $2.5 million at December 27, 2014.   

Mr. David Mintz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company stated, "In the second quarter of 2015, we were able to reverse the decline in sales and continue to implement cost-cutting measures to lower operating expenses. We are working hard to improve on our second quarter metrics and look forward to improved results in the coming quarters."
