New Age Beverages Corp (NASDAQ:NBEV) shares were trading higher Thursday after the company announced financial results for the first quarter, which came in slightly short of expectations.

What Happened

The maker of healthy beverages said its gross revenue amounted to $60.5 million. Net revenue stood at $58.3 million, a 404-percent year-on-year increase; the figure fell short of the consensus estimate of $61.5 million. 

At the same time, New Age Beverages posted a net loss of $1.62 million, down from a loss of $2.65 million a year earlier. The company's net loss of 2 cents per share missed the consensus estimate of a 1-cent-per-share loss. 

Why It's Important

The company said it ended the quarter with $110 million in cash, up from $42.5 million a quarter earlier and recorded $349.5 million in assets. It had a positive operating cash flow of $11.4 million versus a loss of $100,000 a year earlier. 

New Age Beverages is in the process of significantly expanding its market presence and integrating Morinda, a beverage company it acquired in December.

The company has entered into several partnerships. Recently it announced the expansion of a brand licensing agreement with the family of Bob Marley and the Marley brand for an additional 10 years. The Marley brand recently went national following an agreement with Walmart Inc. (NYSE:WMT). 

What's Next

Going forward, New Age Beverages said it expects to accelerate its growth in the second half of 2019 helped by the national distribution of its brands, the launch of its CBD beverages portfolio and other initiatives that are still to be announced. 

New Age shares were trading higher by 3.33 percent at $5.28 at the time of publication Thursday.
