Tofutti Announces Third Quarter And Nine Month Results

CRANFORD, N.J., Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. (NYSE MKT Symbol: TOF) today announced its results for the thirteen and thirty-nine week periods ended September 28, 2013.

Tofutti Brands reported net sales for the thirteen weeks ended September 28, 2013 of  $3,442,000, a decrease of $56,000, or 2%, compared to net sales of $3,498,000 for the thirteen weeks ended September 28, 2012. Net sales for the thirty-nine week period ended September 28, 2013 were $11,143,000, an increase of $657,000, or 6%, compared to net sales of $10,486,000 for the thirty-nine week period ended September 28, 2012.  The decrease in sales in the 2013 thirteen week period was a result of decreased sales of frozen desserts combined with a smaller than anticipated increase in non-dairy cheese product sales. Increased sales in thirty-nine week 2013 period were primarily a result of increased sales of our non-dairy cheese products.  Frozen dessert sales in both 2013 periods continue to be negatively impacted by the overall industry decline in sales of all frozen dessert categories.

The company's gross profit and gross profit percentage for the thirteen week period ending September 28, 2013 were approximately $1,037,000 and 30%, respectively, compared to $882,000 and 25%, respectively, for the period ending September 28, 2012. The increase in gross profit was due to the increase in sales, while the increase in gross profit percentage was due to the positive effect of price increases put into effect in the second quarter coupled with the elimination of certain promotional allowance programs that were in effect in the 2012 period. The company's gross profit and gross profit percentage for the thirty-nine week period ending September 28, 2013 were $3,530,000 and 32%, respectively, compared to $2,828,000 and 27%, respectively, for the period ending September 28, 2012.

For the thirteen week period ended September 28, 2013, the company reported a loss before income taxes of $108,000 with income tax expense $41,000 compared to a loss before income taxes of $279,000 with an income tax benefit of $62,000 for the thirteen week period ended September 28, 2012. As a result, the company recorded a net loss of $149,000, or $0.03 per share, for the thirteen weeks ended September 28, 2013 compared to a net loss of $217,000, or $0.04 per share, for the thirteen weeks ended September 28, 2012.  

The company reported a loss of $190,000 before an income tax expense of $46,000 for the thirty-nine week period ended September 28, 2013 compared to a loss of $785,000 before an income tax benefit of $259,000 for the thirty-nine week period ended September 28, 2012. The company's net loss for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 28, 2013 was $236,000, or $0.05 per share, compared to a net loss of $526,000, or $0.10 per share, for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 28, 2012.

As of September 28, 2013, the company's working capital was approximately $3.4 million, with approximately $0.3 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared with working capital of $3.6 million and approximately $0.47 million in cash and cash equivalents at December 29, 2012.  The decrease in cash and cash equivalents is attributable to $174,000 used in operating activities.  

Mr. David Mintz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the company stated, "Our results for the first nine months of 2013 continue to reflect the impact of the overall industry decline in sales of all frozen dessert categories. We are pleased by the improvement in our gross profit percentage in the third quarter, which reflects the positive effect of price increases put into effect in the second quarter coupled with the elimination of certain promotional allowance programs that were in effect in the 2012 period. We are optimistic about the introduction of our new dairy-free mozzarella cheese pizzas."
