Management Commentary

“The first quarter of fiscal 2023 saw record first quarter revenues for MamaMancini’s, reinforced by our recent acquisitions and bringing us significantly closer to our goal of a $100 million annualized sales run-rate by year-end,” said Carl Wolf, Chairman and CEO of MamaMancini’s. “As shared in our fourth quarter fiscal 2022 earnings call a few weeks ago, we have a strong, growing presence in the fresh prepared foods segment. To support these initiatives, we are focusing on product innovation based on customer feedback – creating promising favorites such as our new Original Meatballs in a Cup product – to better meet our customer’s multi-faceted needs.

“On the financial front, with non-recurring acquisition related expenses behind us, we returned to profitability and are beginning to enhance margins by rapidly passing along price increases to our customers. From an industry perspective, this phenomenon is new and unique to the inflationary environment we find ourselves in – but it should serve to fortify our margin profile going forward, regardless of future commodity cost increases. In addition, as commodity costs normalize and our input costs come down, we expect to further enhance long-term margins through the defense of our recent price increases.

“In summary, we continue to grow our national footprint while concurrently innovating on the product front, driving more SKUs per store. Our positioning as a national platform company is clear and we continue to see attractive multiples for companies in the food products space, providing an exciting pipeline of potential M&A opportunities as we see fit. We are incredibly well positioned to create sustainable, long-term value for my fellow shareholders, and I look forward to a strong cadence of operational execution in the quarters ahead,” concluded Wolf.

First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 increased 111.7% to a record $21.8 million, as compared to $10.3 million in the same year-ago quarter. The revenue increase for the quarter was primarily a result of the first full quarter from the December 2021 acquisition of T&L Creative Salads, Inc. and Olive Branch LLC.

Gross profit increased to $3.9 million, or 17.7% of total revenues, in the first quarter of fiscal 2023, as compared to $3.3 million, or 32.4% of total revenues, in the same year-ago quarter. The margin compression was caused by inflation of raw materials, packaging and freight costs – as well as lower margins in the T&L Creative Salads and Olive Branch LLC business lines, partially offset by the low overhead of the acquired businesses. Management believes the balance between inflated raw materials costs and the Company’s price increases will normalize in the second quarter, returning gross profit margins to its historical range.

Operating expenses totaled $3.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2023, as compared to $2.5 million in the same year-ago quarter. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses totaled 16.5% in the first quarter of fiscal 2023, as compared to 24.2% in the same year-ago quarter. Operating expenses in the first quarter increased mainly due to transportation rate increases, fuel surcharges and acquisition related expenses.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 totaled $0.1 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, as compared to a net income of $0.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the same year-ago quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP term, totaled $0.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2023, as compared to $1.1 million in the same year-ago quarter.

Cash and cash equivalents as of April 30, 2022 were $0.9 million, as compared to $0.9 million at January 31, 2022.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP measure – adjusted EBITDA, which is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a measure of financial performance. The company believes this non-GAAP measure, when considered together with the corresponding GAAP measures, provides useful information to investors and management regarding financial and business trends relating to the company’s results of operations. However, this non-GAAP measure has significant limitations in that it does not reflect all the costs and other items associated with the operation of the company’s business as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company’s non-GAAP measures may be calculated differently and are therefore not comparable to similar measures by other companies. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance in accordance with GAAP. For a definition and reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, its corresponding GAAP measure, please see the reconciliation table shown in this press release below.
