Management Commentary
“I am proud of the operational progress our team made in the third quarter, realizing strong year-over-year growth amidst the backdrop of COVID-19,” said Carl Wolf, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MamaMancini’s. “We continue to grow the breadth and depth of our product distribution footprint at retail storefronts nationwide, a testament to the quality of our products that keep customers coming back for more, time and again – the same qualities that drove our recognition at the 2020 QVC Customer Choice Food Awards.

“Our strong financial results year-to-date are due to the aforementioned sales growth, itself driven by our successful advertising efforts, as well as the operational efficiencies that we have been able to realize as we scale – improving processes on the factory floor to boost output and lower incremental costs wherever possible. We expect that these efficiencies will be seen in the gross margin profile of future quarters, particularly as beef prices return to normal.

“As we move towards the conclusion of 2020 and into 2021, various positive potential outcomes await MamaMancini’s – from the realization of strategic alternatives, to a potential uplisting and continued growth in new product placements with the abatement of headwinds related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are primed for another record-breaking year. I look forward to continuing these efforts as we work to create sustainable, long-term value for our shareholders,” concluded Wolf.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2021 Financial Results
Revenue in the third quarter of 2021 increased to a third quarter record of $9.9 million, compared to $9.3 million in the same year-ago quarter. Revenue year-to-date increased 27% to a record $31.4 million, compared to $24.7 million in the same year-ago period. Revenue growth was primarily a result of increased sales to new and existing customers, partially offset by COVID-19 effects which slowed some new placements in the third quarter and are expected to resume in the fourth quarter.

Gross profit increased to $3.1 million in the third quarter of 2021, or 32% of total revenues, compared to $2.9 million, or 31% of total revenues, in the same year-ago quarter. Gross profit year-to-date increased to $10.1 million, or 32% of total revenues, compared to $8.0 million, or 32% of total revenues, in the same year-ago period. Gross margin increased primarily as a result of ongoing efforts to improve plant operating efficiencies, partially offset by the temporary negative impact of higher beef pricing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Operating expenses decreased to $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $2.4 million in the same year-ago quarter. Operating expenses year-to-date increased by 15% to $7.5 million as compared to the same year-ago period. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses in the third quarter and year-to-date decreased from 26% to 24%. Operating expenses decreased primarily due to lower promotional expenses for product merchandising.

Net income for the third quarter of 2021 grew significantly to $0.7 million, or $0.02 per share, as compared to a net income of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per share, in the same year-ago quarter. Net income year-to-date totaled $2.4 million, as compared to $1.1 million in the same year-ago period. The increase in net income was primarily attributable to an increase in sales, reduction of operating expenses as a percentage of sales and a decrease in interest expense.

Cash and cash equivalents as of October 31, 2020 was $1.8 million, as compared to $0.4 million at January 31, 2020. The increased cash balance as of October 31, 2020 benefitted from $2.5 million in cash flow from operations fiscal year-to-date, partially offset by a paydown of debt, as the Company reduced its debt by 84% fiscal year-to-date, as well as redemption of warrants outstanding.
