Management Commentary

“We notably advanced our ongoing active acquisition program in the third quarter, which could significantly expand our existing business in the prepared foods segment,” said Carl Wolf, Chairman and CEO of MamaMancini’s. “Any acquisition we make will be financed in a shareholder friendly way, targeting zero shares to be issued, leveraging cash on hand and attractive bank financing we have available to us. Given our growth expectations and the revenue from potential near-term acquisition targets, we believe MamaMancini’s could approach $100 million in annual sales within 18 months.

“We are particularly excited by the growth opportunities of companies we may acquire, made possible by leveraging our national network of tier-1 retailer and club store accounts. We believe we can significantly grow sales in the years to come by leveraging our nationwide platform, pushing through more of our SKUs per relationship and driving stronger sales per location in aggregate.

“We continue to innovate our core product lines as well – as we will soon begin to ship a major new line of ready-to-eat meals in up to 11 varieties. Due to the immense labor shortages facing retailers, we believe that this line will have great success. Our new, convenient Meatballs-in-a-Cup™ product will launch for testing in the first quarter at an attractive $3.99 price point. The high protein content of 16 grams, and very modest calories are attractive attributes to health-conscious consumers. This product has the potential to efficiently service the exciting convenience store, supermarket, and university food service opportunities. We have added to production capacity to handle $10-12 million in incremental annualized sales in both these lines.

“While we faced continued supply chain headwinds as well as record increases in protein commodity pricing in the third quarter, which temporarily impacted margins, we are implementing significant price increases and expect to see margin improvement by year-end. I would expect sales to grow to $11.5 – 12.5 million in the fourth quarter, up from $9.4 million in the same year-ago quarter. We are well positioned to notably improve margins in the long-term as supply chain bottlenecks clear up and prices normalize – enabling us to create sustainable value for our shareholders for years to come,” concluded Wolf.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Results

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 increased 12.1% to $10.9 million, as compared to $9.7 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase in revenue for the third quarter was a result of major new business with Whole Foods and Publix.

Gross profit totaled $2.7 million, or 25.2% of total revenues, in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to $2.9 million, or 30.1% of total revenues, in the same year-ago quarter. The lower gross profit margin in the third quarter was due to higher cost of protein and cost of freight in for all elements of supply. The Company expects gross margins will improve by fiscal year-end as commodity prices normalize and higher production volumes will result in higher plant operating efficiencies, and significant price increases come into effect.

Operating expenses totaled $2.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to $2.1 million in the same year-ago quarter. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses totaled 25.1% in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to 21.9% in the same year-ago quarter. Operating expenses in the third quarter were affected by over $300,000 in increased logistics expenses, higher marketing expenses of approximately $100,000, which were introductory demonstration expenses for a new rotational retail item at a major national retailer, as well as over $150,000 in increased corporate infrastructure expenses in the quarter, including higher Director fees, costs related to the Company’s NASDAQ-listing, increases in corporate management to handle new acquisitions, new management systems and recruiting costs.

Pre-Tax Income for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 totaled ($0.0) million, as compared to $0.7 million in the same year-ago quarter.

Net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 totaled ($0.0) million, or $0.00 per diluted share, as compared to a net income of $0.7 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the same year-ago quarter.

Cash and cash equivalents as of October 31, 2021 were $4.5 million, as compared to $1.8 million in the same year-ago quarter and $3.2 million as of January 31, 2021. The increased cash balance benefitted from $2.1 million in cash flow from operations year-to-date.
