Management Commentary

“The first quarter of fiscal 2024 reflects the sustainability of our margin profile, a strong base which we expect to build upon as we continue to strengthen our business throughout the year,” said Adam L. Michaels, Chairman and CEO of MamaMancini’s. “Our success in enhancing profitability has been enabled through our laser focus on being brilliant at the basics and executing upon our ‘3Cs’ strategy – Cost, Controls, and Culture. Despite the progress we have seen to-date, there is still room for further improvement in time, and I firmly believe that gross margins could reach the 30% range in the long-term.

“Today’s consumers are facing significant macro-economic pressures, with many eating out less and turning to prepared foods in the deli sections of their local grocery store. We remain on the forefront of this trend, acting as a one-stop-shop by enabling our grocer customers to offer consumers an incredibly wide variety of Grandma-quality, affordable and easy-to-prepare meal solutions. To that end, our successful introduction of several new highly incremental products at the IDDBA 2023 conference will allow us to capture new dining occasions – including on-the-go snacking with a new line of ‘in a cup’ products and incremental entrée opportunities with Mama’s Creations to capture a greater portion of consumer tastes.

“Looking ahead, we see tremendous growth potential in our new brand extensions under the Mama’s Creations banner, and we are eager to leverage more ‘feet on the street’ through the impending build-out of our sales force – most recently with our hire of a Director of West Coast Sales – to notably grow the average number of SKUs per customer. In the spirit of this continued corporate evolution into a national one-stop-shop deli solutions provider, this summer we will seek to transition our corporate name to Mama’s Creations with a new stock ticker ‘MAMA’. In summary, we are well-positioned for continued growth, and I am confident that our ongoing initiatives will allow us to take significant market share in-time and deliver sustainable value to my fellow shareholders,” concluded Michaels.

First Quarter Fiscal 2024 Financial Results

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 increased 5.9% to $23.1 million, as compared to $21.8 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase was largely attributable to strong organic growth, driven by successful cross selling efforts.

Gross profit increased 65% to $6.4 million, or 27.6% of total revenues, in the first quarter of fiscal 2024, as compared to $3.9 million, or 17.7% of total revenues, in the same year-ago quarter. The increase in gross margin was primarily attributable to the normalization of commodity costs, successful pricing actions and improvements in operational efficiencies across the organization. The Company continues to identify procurement and logistics efficiencies and cost savings through stronger buying power created through the acquisitions of T&L and Olive Branch.

Operating expenses totaled $4.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2024, as compared to $3.6 million in the same year-ago quarter. As a percentage of sales, operating expenses increased in the first quarter of fiscal 2024 to 19.2% from 16.5%. Operating expenses, as a percentage of sales, increased due to the addition of several new key hires, who brought new and differentiated capabilities to the organization.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 was $1.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, as compared to $0.1 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the same year-ago quarter. This quarter’s net income totaled 6.1% of revenue, in line with our expectations in the mid-single-digit range.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP term, increased to $2.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2024, as compared to an adjusted EBITDA of $0.7 million in the same year-ago quarter.

Cash and cash equivalents as of April 30, 2023 were $5.3 million, as compared to $4.4 million as of January 31, 2023. The increase in cash and cash equivalents was driven by $1.6 million in cash flow from operations in the first quarter of fiscal 2024, $0.5 million of which was used to pay down the Company’s debt, which now stands at just $8.8 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP measure – adjusted EBITDA, which is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a measure of financial performance. The company believes this non-GAAP measure, when considered together with the corresponding GAAP measures, provides useful information to investors and management regarding financial and business trends relating to the company’s results of operations. However, this non-GAAP measure has significant limitations in that it does not reflect all the costs and other items associated with the operation of the company’s business as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the company’s non-GAAP measures may be calculated differently and are therefore not comparable to similar measures by other companies. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance in accordance with GAAP. For a definition and reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, its corresponding GAAP measure, please see the reconciliation table shown in this press release below.
