Management Commentary

“Our fiscal 2021 was a record year of growth despite intense hardships at the national level, driven by a shift in consumer purchasing power from restaurants to grocery stores in light of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Carl Wolf, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MamaMancini’s. “We continued to supply grocers throughout the pandemic with minimal impact on operations, launching effective new advertising campaigns and securing exciting new product placements on thousands of retailer shelves nationwide, expanding both the breadth and depth of our reach as a brand.

“To further supplement our incredible growth, we advanced a significant internal effort to explore potential acquisitions, focusing on companies with complementary products in the perimeter of the supermarket as well as exceptional operational and financial metrics. The ability to realize new distribution relationships and push an existing production through our already robust distributor network, all at an attractive valuation, is our chief goal. We will remain highly selective to ensure any target is accretive, reasonably valued and highly complementary to our core business. We look forward to additional announcements on this front as potential targets move through our due diligence pipeline.

“While fiscal 2021 was a record year, there are still extremely attractive growth areas for the core business as we enter fiscal 2022. From major box retailer engagements to hot bar placements at leading groceries nationwide, our outlook on the near-term food market remains optimistic. When taken in tandem with the new acquisition strategy as well as our recent application to uplist to the Nasdaq Capital Market, I believe that fiscal 2022 will mark another record year for our shareholders,” concluded Wolf.

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2021 Financial Results

Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 increased 1.4% to a record $10.0 million, compared to $9.9 million in the same year-ago quarter. Revenue for fiscal 2021 increased 20.8% to a record $40.8 million, compared to $33.8 million in fiscal 2020. The revenue increase for the year was a result of increased volume in Club Store accounts in the Spring and through new product introductions later in the year.

Gross profit increased 15% to $3.3 million, or 32.9% of total revenues, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $2.9 million, or 29.0% of total revenues, in the same year-ago quarter. Gross profit increased 27.6% to $12.7 million, or 31.3% of total revenues, in fiscal 2021, compared to $10.0 million, or 29.6% of total revenues, in fiscal 2020. The increase in gross profit in the fourth quarter is primarily due to a change in customer mix to higher margin accounts including QVC.

Operating expenses totaled $2.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $2.2 million in the same year-ago quarter. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses increased in the fourth quarter of 2021 to 23.8% from 22.4%. Operating expenses totaled $9.3 million in fiscal 2021, compared to $7.9 million in fiscal 2020. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses decreased in fiscal 2021 at 22.7% of sales. Operating expense in the fourth quarter increased mainly due to a higher percentage of volume in higher margin accounts with higher merchandising support in direct relation to those accounts.

Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 grew by a significant 311% to $1.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, as compared to a net income of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the same year-ago quarter. Net income for fiscal 2021 grew 165% to a record $4.1 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $1.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in fiscal 2020. The increase in net income was attributable to increased sales, higher gross margin and lower interest expenses, and a non-recurring deferred tax benefit of $0.74 million.

Cash and cash equivalents as of January 31, 2021 was $3.2 million, as compared to $0.4 million as of January 31, 2020. The increased cash balance benefitted from $3.7 million in cash flow from operations in fiscal 2021, proceeds from warrant redemptions, and offset by a paydown of debt.
