EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ--(Marketwired - Jun 13, 2017) - MamaMancini's Holdings, Inc. (the "Company" or "MamaMancini's") (OTCQB: MMMB), a marketer of specialty pre-prepared, frozen and refrigerated all natural food products (as defined by the United States Department of Agriculture), today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2018, ended April 30, 2017.

First Quarter Highlights:

  • First quarter of fiscal year 2018 revenue increased 37% to $5.4 million compared to $3.9 million in prior year period.
  • Net income for the first quarter was $128,000 versus net loss of $(226,000) in prior year period; a $354,000 increase.
  • Net income available to common stockholders was $81,000, or $0.00 per diluted share, during the first quarter of fiscal 2018, compared to a net loss of $(290,000), or $(0.01) per diluted share in the same quarter last year.
  • Cash EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial metric (please refer to Non-GAAP Financial Measures paragraph below), for the first quarter was $513,000 compared to $192,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.
  • Cash flow from operating activities was $526,000 compared to ($438,000) in the year ago quarter.

Carl Wolf, Chief Executive Officer of MamaMancini's, commented, "We are off to a good start in fiscal 2018. Our strategy of focusing on selling our products into the food service area, on the perimeter of the retail grocery store, continues to gain traction. This section of the store offers fresh, minimally or non-processed, healthy foods where superior revenue and margin opportunities exist. This strategy has allowed us to develop larger retail store accounts that drive revenue and permits us to operate more efficiently. Breaking into profitability has been an important strategic goal. We now have now achieved profitability in each of the last three consecutive quarters. Our sites are now focused on achieving our first full year of profitability at the conclusion of the next quarter."

Mr. Wolf concluded, "Looking ahead, our goal is to get to a $40 million run rate by late summer of calendar 2017. This is not our internal projection but our goal. The key to the business right now is execution, which will cause the company to ramp up from a $20 million run rate to a $40 million run rate in less than a year. We expect a double-digit sequential revenue increase in the upcoming second quarter over the first quarter with similar increases in net income and cash EBITDA. That is a major undertaking. We are excited with the opportunities ahead."

First Quarter 2018 Results
Sales, net of slotting fees and discounts, were $5.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, a 37% increase compared to $3.9 million reported in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. The Company has sold into approximately 38,600 SKU's in 11,700 retail and grocery locations at April 30, 2017 as compared to approximately 35,000 SKU's in 11,400 retail and grocery locations at April 30, 2016. Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $1.9 million, or 35% of sales, compared to $1.5 million, or 38% of sales, in the year ago period. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $128,000, compared to a net loss of $(226,000) in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.

The Company's strategy of developing larger customers and exiting underperforming accounts that do not generate attractive returns has achieved improving operating results. The Company expects a continuation of revenue growth for the foreseeable future as it continues to develop larger accounts and introduce new product lines. As a result, the company is anticipating fiscal 2018 revenues to increase substantially over prior year and report continued profitability.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company uses Cash EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company defines Cash EBITDA as earnings before income taxes, depreciation and amortization plus any non-cash stock payments for expenses. The Company believes that the use of Cash EBITDA is useful to investors and other users of its financial statements in evaluating the Company's operating performance because it provides them with an additional tool to compare business performance across companies and across periods. The Company uses Cash EBITDA in conjunction with traditional GAAP operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of its performance, for planning purposes, including the preparation of its annual operating budget, and to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies. Management does not place undue reliance on Cash EBITDA as its only measure of operating performance. Cash EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.

Conference Call
The Company has scheduled a conference call for Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at 9:00 am ET to review the results.

Interested parties may participate on the conference call by dialing (844) 889-4326 or (412) 317-9264. A replay of the conference call will be available by dialing (877) 344-7529 or (412) 317-0088, confirmation code 10103610, through March 31, 2017.
