Continues Expansion into Food Service Markets; Grows Product Placements with Customers

Investors Invited to Join Tasting Luncheon at Corporate Offices on June 26th at 11:45 a.m. EDT

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ, June 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MamaMancini's Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: MMMB), a marketer of specialty pre-prepared, frozen and refrigerated all-natural food products, has reported its financial results for the first quarter ended April 30, 2019.

Recent Operational Highlights:

  • Introduced an innovative new pasta bowl product line for supermarkets, club stores and the food service segment.
  • Appointed Allan Sabatier as Vice President of Business Development to lead the Company’s entry into the large and growing food service and alternate market segments.
  • Deployed multiple large advertising campaigns via SiriusXM Radio to drive retail awareness surrounding major national holidays in the United States.
  • Commenced initial shipments of nine new products to customers, including Walmart, BJ’s Club Stores and Ahold (Stop n Shop), among others.

Management Commentary

“The first quarter of fiscal 2020 was marked by continued strong sales into supermarkets nationwide, as well as laying the groundwork for our launch into the large and growing food service market later this year,” said Carl Wolf, Chairman and CEO of MamaMancini’s Holdings, Inc. “In fact, the food service market is just as big, if not bigger, than the retail food industry we currently serve, which nearly doubles our addressable market. As part of these efforts, we continue to strategically build our capabilities to service a strong growth in our market—such as the significant improvements we’ve made to our manufacturing capabilities, which provides us with the ability to more easily introduce new products.

“These operational improvements are further being bolstered by renewed marketing campaigns and the launch of several new products, such as our recently unveiled pasta bowl offering at Stop N Shop stores. MamaMancini’s simple, nutritious and delicious Italian food products resonate well with the ethos of leading supermarkets globally, and as a result, we expect continued growth in our already impressive base of national and regional customers, which include giants like Walmart, Sam’s Club, Costco and BJ’s Club Stores, among others.”

“Supporting our strategic initiatives is a strengthened balance sheet, which includes a $3.5 million working capital line and a $2.5 million five-year note at friendly terms. As we look towards the second quarter of 2020 and beyond, we are expecting significant revenue growth via the introduction of new products and customers, while also using our cash flow from operations to reduce our senior debt. Ultimately, we strongly believe that the steps we have taken should provide us with strong sales growth in the second quarter of 2020, while also positioning us for significant shareholder value creation over the long-term,” concluded Wolf.

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 totaled $7.4 million, compared to $7.7 million in the same year-ago quarter. The revenue decline was largely precipitated by the recognition of approximately $2.1 million of revenue as a result of a one-time major merchandising event with the Company’s largest customer and one additional shipping week in the first quarter of fiscal 2019, which did not recur in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Excluding these non-recurring events, period over period sales would have substantially increased in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

Gross profit totaled $2.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020, compared to $2.8 million in the same year-ago quarter. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 totaled 32.2%, as compared to 36.5% in the same year-ago quarter. Cost of goods sold for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 included higher depreciation expense in comparison to prior year comparable period, which negatively impacted gross profit by 3% of sales for the three months ended April 30, 2019. As the company grows sales, they expect gross margins to increase as a result of the newly implemented and planned manufacturing plant efficiencies.

Operating expenses totaled $1.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020, compared to $2.3 million in the same year-ago quarter. Operating expenses decreased primarily due to higher depreciation expenses last year, as well as higher consumer demonstration expenses related to a one-time major sales event last year.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 totaled $0.4 million, as compared to $0.3 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase in net income was primarily a result of lower interest and amortization of debt discount expenses.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $0.7 million as of April 30, 2019, as compared to $0.6 million as of January 31, 2019. During the first quarter of 2020, the Company repaid $325,000 of their senior debt, while already paying down $240,000 in the fiscal second quarter of 2020.

Cash flow from operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 increased significantly to $0.7 million, compared to $0.1 million in the same year-ago quarter.
