Management Commentary

“The second quarter of fiscal 2022 was highlighted by our rapid pace of growth, realizing a robust 17% revenue increase as compared to the same year-ago quarter,” said Carl Wolf, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MamaMancini’s. “These sales figures were driven by our previously announced product placements, many of which began to ship in the second quarter. Profits were temporarily offset by elevated commodity and shipping costs as well as one-time extraordinary expenses related to our Nasdaq listing fee and additional shareholder meeting requirements. Our go-forward sales forecasts continue to increase given our planned price increases and I would expect to see margin improvement by year-end.

“On July 15, 2021 we completed our uplisting to the Nasdaq Capital Market – a milestone for all MamaMancini’s stakeholders that has been several years in the making. We expect that this will help elevate our public profile, expand our potential shareholder base and improve liquidity. I could not be prouder of our incredibly hard-working team, many of whom were featured when we rang the Nasdaq closing bell just a few short weeks ago.

“With our active acquisition efforts well underway, I firmly believe we are still in the early innings of MamaMancini’s growth and increasing prominence as a public company. We will continue to scale operations and have only begun our capital markets journey. We are poised for success on all fronts and look forward to seeing what the future holds for our brand,” concluded Wolf.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Results        

Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 totaled $12.1 million, as compared to $10.3 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase in revenue for the second quarter was a result of initial shipments as part of the Company’s previously announced new placement wins with tier-1 retailers nationwide.

Gross profit totaled $3.4 million, or 27.9% of total revenues, in the second quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to $3.1 million, or 30.0% of total revenues, in the same year-ago quarter. The lower gross profit margin in the second quarter was due to higher inbound shipping and commodity costs which were passed on to existing customers on a time lag basis for the first two months of the quarter, and fixed pricing for a short introductory period on new placements. The Company expects profit margins will improve by year-end as commodity prices normalize and higher production volumes will result in higher plant operating efficiencies, as well as the expiration of introductory pricing with several customers.  

Operating expenses totaled $2.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to $2.3 million in the same year-ago quarter. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses totaled 23.1% in the second quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to 22.2% in the same year-ago quarter. Operating expenses in the second quarter were affected by significant one-time expenses such as the Company’s Nasdaq uplisting and additional shareholder meeting requirements, increased shipping costs and higher director fees.

Pre-Tax Income for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 totaled $0.6 million, as compared to $0.7 million in the same year-ago quarter.

Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 totaled $0.4 million, or $0.01 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. The decrease in net income was significantly attributable to an income tax provision of $145,439 recorded during the three months ended July 31, 2021, compared to $0 during the three months ended July 31, 2020.

Cash and cash equivalents as of July 31, 2021 were $4.3 million, as compared to $1.7 million in the same year-ago quarter and $3.2 million as of January 31, 2021. The increased cash balance benefitted from $0.2 million in cash flow from operations in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 and a total of $1.6 million fiscal year-to-date.
