  • Secured new authorizations and shipments of products into tier-1 national and regional food retailers, club stores and a distributor to a major European airline carrier, including the notable addition of T&L Creative Salads products into existing relationships at Sam’s Club.
  • Named the coveted Today’s Special Value deal on QVC for December 8th, securing approximately 5 hours of airtime throughout the day. This drove expected sales of $2,000,000 spread out through calendar 2021 and 2022.
  • Presented at leading investor conferences, including the Planet MicroCap Showcase 2022 in Las Vegas and the upcoming LD Micro Invitational in Westlake Village.

Management Commentary

“The fourth quarter was highlighted by record revenues, as well as the acquisition of premier gourmet food manufacturers T&L and Olive Branch, a highly symbiotic pairing with our distribution network that we expect to generate at least $35 million in sales in 2022 – in addition to MamaMancini’s core revenue base,” said Carl Wolf, Chairman and CEO of MamaMancini’s. “The acquisition significantly expanded our existing business in the rapidly growing fresh prepared foods segment, where we believe we can achieve a substantial increase in sales and EBITDA by leveraging established national distribution partnerships. This was quickly demonstrated during the quarter with the addition of T&L products into existing relationships at Sam’s Club. Integration of the acquisition has proceeded rapidly, bringing with it over 3,000 new locations for the combined company and over 10,000 spots on retailer shelves.

“Given our ongoing growth and the addition of revenue from the acquisitions, we believe MamaMancini’s will generate at least $20 million in sales in the first quarter of fiscal year 2023 and approach a $100 million annual sales run-rate over the next year. This is possible through pushing more of our SKUs per relationship and driving stronger sales per location with complementary products with minimal overlap. Looking ahead to continue this momentum, we continue to see attractive multiples in the food product space and will evaluate additional acquisition opportunities that are immediately accretive.

“Our continued new product innovation paid off in April as our first-ever QVC sale of the Original Meatballs in a Cup product promptly sold out and received a notable order backlog, which we filled in the weeks following the QVC live presentation. On the margin front, we are starting to more rapidly pass along price increases to our customers with minimal lead time, which should enhance margins going forward. This margin compression, paired with $748K in acquisition expenses and $276K in inventory write offs and increased expense accruals , is what drove our temporary reduction in profitability in the fourth quarter.

“In summary, the last several months were a time of foundation building for the year ahead – from which our vision of MamaMancini’s as a national platform company will emerge. I look forward to continued execution in the months ahead as we strive to create long-term value for our shareholders,” concluded Wolf.

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2022 Financial Results

Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 increased 38.5% to a record $13.9 million, compared to $10.0 million in the same year-ago quarter. Revenue for fiscal 2022 increased 15.4% to a record $47.1 million, compared to $40.8 million in fiscal 2021. The revenue increase for the year was a result of establishing a greater balance of major customer volumes attributed to growth in sales across a strong portfolio of both national and large regional grocery chains and club stores.

Gross profit decreased 26.8% to $2.4 million, or 17.4% of total revenues, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to $3.3 million, or 32.9% of total revenues, in the same year-ago quarter. Gross profit decreased 6.3% to $11.9 million, or 25.2% of total revenues, in fiscal 2022, compared to $12.7 million, or 31.1% of total revenues, in fiscal 2021. The decrease in gross profit in the fourth quarter is primarily due to increases in raw material costs, packaging costs and in-bound freight costs which outpaced sales price increases during FY22 Q3 and Q4.

Operating expenses totaled $3.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to $2.4 million in the same year-ago quarter. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses increased in the fourth quarter of 2022 to 27.2% from 23.8%. Operating expenses totaled $11.8 million in fiscal 2022, compared to $9.3 million in fiscal 2021. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses increased in fiscal 2022 at 25.0% of sales as compared to 22.7% in fiscal 2021. Operating expense in the fourth quarter increased mainly due to transportation rate increases and fuel surcharges, $0.75 million in acquisition related expenses, $0.20 million in increased accruals for freight and marketing expenses, as well as costs associated with uplisting to the Nasdaq.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $1.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, as compared to a net income of $1.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the same year-ago quarter. Net loss for fiscal 2022 was $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $4.1 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in fiscal 2021. The decrease in net income was attributable to lower gross margin, higher freight and shipping expenses, acquisition related expenses, as well as increases in marketing accruals, and tax expense of $0.3 million as compared to a tax benefit of $0.7 million in the prior period.

Cash and cash equivalents as of January 31, 2022 was $0.9 million, as compared to $3.2 million as of January 31, 2021. The difference in cash balance is chiefly due to a substantial usage of cash to fund the acquisition made in December 2021.
