BAB, Inc. Reports Results for 1st Quarter FY 2019


DEERFIELD, Ill., April 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BAB, Inc. (OTCQB:BABB), announced its financial results for the first quarter ended February 28, 2019.

For the quarter ended February 28, 2019, BAB had revenues of $712,000 and net income of $97,000, or earnings of $0.01 per share, versus revenues of $500,000 and net income of $101,000, or earnings of $0.01 per share for the quarter ended February 28, 2018. On December 1, 2018, BAB, Inc. adopted Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 606. The adoption of this standard includes changes in revenue and expenses and the adoption for 2019 uses the modified retrospective transition method. The adoption of ASC 606 changes how revenue is recognized for franchise fees, license fees and gift card revenue. Had ASC 606 not been adopted, first quarter 2019 net income would have been $137,000. A material addition to revenue is the inclusion of marketing fund payments in revenues for the first quarter of 2019 in the amount of $229,000. This marketing fund adoption did not affect net income because an offsetting amount of $229,000 is included in expenses. 

Total operating expenses were $611,000 for the quarter ended February 28, 2019, which includes $229,000 of marketing fund expenses not included in 2018, versus $385,000 for February 28, 2018. For February 28, 2019 there was a $5,000 current tax expense recorded compared to $15,000 for the same period in 2018.

BAB, Inc. franchises and licenses Big Apple Bagels®, My Favorite Muffin®, SweetDuet® frozen yogurt and Brewster's® Coffee. The Company's stock is traded on the OTCQB under the symbol BABB and its website can be visited at
