Share:

Cranford, New Jersey, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. (OTCQB Symbol: TOFB) today announced its results for the thirteen and twenty-six week periods ended June 30, 2018.

Tofutti Brands reported net sales for the thirteen weeks ended June 30, 2018 of $3,443,000 compared to net sales of $3,646,000 for the thirteen weeks ended July 1, 2017. The decrease is primarily attributable to a $181,000 decline in frozen dessert and frozen food products sales, which were negatively impacted by the unavailability of certain frozen novelties. The Company's gross profit decreased to $1,014,000 for the thirteen weeks ended June 30, 2018 from $1,173,000 in the thirteen weeks ended July 1, 2017, and its gross profit percentage declined to 29% in the thirteen weeks ending June 30, 2018 compared to 32% for the thirteen weeks ending July 1, 2017. Gross profit percentage in the second quarter of 2018 was negatively impacted by an increase in freight out expense. As a percentage of sales, freight out expense was 8% percent for the thirteen weeks ended June 30, 2018 compared to 6% percent for the thirteen weeks ended July 1, 2017. The Company had net income of $90,000, or $0.02 per share (basic and diluted), for the thirteen weeks ended June 30, 2018, compared to net income of $270,000, or $0.05 per share (basic and diluted), for the thirteen weeks ended July 1, 2017.

Net sales for the twenty-six week period ended June 30, 2018 were $7,217,000 compared to net sales of $6,929,000 for the twenty-six week period ended July 1, 2017, an increase of $288,000. The Company's gross profit for the twenty-six week period ending June 30, 2018 was $2,294,000 compared to $2,187,000 for the twenty-six week period ending July 1, 2017, due to the increase in sales. The Company's gross profit percentage was 32% for both periods. Freight out expense increased slightly by $14,000, or 3%, to $537,000 for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2018 compared with $523,000 for the twenty-six weeks ended July 1, 2017. The Company's net income for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2018 was $416,000, or $0.08 per share (basic and diluted), compared to net income of $97,000, or $0.02 per share (basic and diluted), for the twenty-six weeks ended July 1, 2017.

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had approximately $537,000 in cash and cash equivalents and its working capital was approximately $4.1 million, compared with approximately $1,414,000 in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of approximately $3.1 million at December 30, 2017. The decline in cash is primarily the result of an increase in inventory and accounts receivable and a reduction in current liabilities.

Mr. David Mintz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company stated, "While we experienced a slight decline in revenues in the second quarter, I am pleased with our operations in the quarter and with the outlook for the remainder of 2018. In the second quarter we experienced a decline in frozen dessert sales due to the unavailability of certain frozen novelties that our former manufacturing plant had produced for us. We expect that our new facility will commence production of Yours Truly Cones in September and stick novelties in the fourth quarter of this year. We also experienced a slight decline in sales of our vegan cheese products in the second quarter due to a decrease in our export cheese business. We expect that certain foreign custom issues which impacted our export sales will be resolved in the near term. We continue to believe that we on the right track to produce consistent profitable operations," concluded Mr. Mintz.
