  • Second quarter 2017 gross margin increased substantially to 33% compared to 24% in the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Gross margin for full year fiscal 2017 expected to be approximately 35%.
  • Total operating expenses for the second quarter increased four percent versus the comparable quarter of fiscal 2016 as the Company increased R&D spending for development of future new products and freight increased with more volume. As a percentage of sales operating expenses decreased from 51.5% to 35.7% of net sales.
  • Loss from Operations for the second quarter fiscal 2017 improved 86% to $(109,167) versus $(762,936) in the prior year second quarter.
  • Net loss for second quarter fiscal 2017 improved 72% to $(276,810) compared to $(1.0 million) in the second quarter of fiscal 2016. EPS for second quarter fiscal 2017 was $(0.01) compared to $(0.04) in second quarter fiscal 2016.
  • Placements on grocer's shelves increased from approximately 35,000 to 36,000 from first quarter to second quarter of this year. Sales volume per items on the shelf increased by approximately 59% versus the second quarter of 2016.
  • *Cash EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial metric, for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was positive $147,000 compared with negative $(692,000) in the second fiscal quarter of 2016.

Carl Wolf, Chief Executive Officer of MamaMancini's, commented, "The second quarter of fiscal year 2017 was very strong. Revenue increased 51% and 32% for the second quarter and the first half of fiscal year 2017, respectively. The new retail store customers added during the latter months of fiscal 2016 and the first two quarters of fiscal 2017 are driving solid double-digit revenue increases. Our strategy of developing larger customers and exiting underperforming accounts that do not generate reasonable returns is achieving improving operating results.

As a result of our, now, more sustainable account base, gross margin for the quarter improved to 33% from 24% in last year's comparable quarter. Our operating loss for the second quarter improved by 86% as we continue to develop new retail store accounts, drive revenue and operate on a more efficient basis. We are very pleased with the results of the second quarter and the first half of the fiscal year."

"We continue to grow our presence on the perimeter of the retail grocery store, where fresh, minimally or non-processed, healthy foods are offered," continued Mr. Wolf. "The trend among consumers for high quality, fresh, take-out food at their local grocery store continues to grow as busy work and family schedules demand nutritious meals with minimal prep time. This outer band of the retail grocery store, on an industry-wide basis, is growing at an estimated 10% annual rate compared to the middle of the store which is experiencing a one to two percent annual decline. Our products fit perfectly with the evolving everyday life of millions of Americans."

Second Quarter 2017 Results
Sales, net of slotting fees and discounts, were $4.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, a 51% increase compared to $2.7 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal 2016. The increase in sales was primarily driven by the addition of new customers in the first half of fiscal 2017 and in the final months of fiscal year 2016. As of July 31, 2016, the Company's products were sold in approximately 11,600 stores, with an average of 3.1 product SKUs in each store, aggregating to approximately 36,000 retail and grocery shelf placements throughout the U.S. That compares with approximately 38,000 shelf placements as of July 31, 2015. The company's sales per store increased 59% over prior year.

Gross profit for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $1.4 million, or 33% of sales, compared to $648,168, or 24% of sales, in the year ago period. The increase in gross margin is primarily attributed to increased revenue during the second quarter of fiscal 2017 from new retail store customers and the exiting of a substantial number of underperforming low margin accounts during the previous fiscal year.

Net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was ($277,000), or ($0.01) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(1.0 million), or ($0.04) per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Six-Months Fiscal 2017 Results
Sales, net of slotting fees and discounts, were $8.1 million for the first half of fiscal 2017, a 32% increase compared to $6.1 million reported in the first six months of fiscal 2016. The increase in sales was primarily driven by the addition of new customers in the first half of fiscal 2017 and in the final months of fiscal year 2016.

Gross profit for the first six months of fiscal 2017 was $ 2.8 million, or 35% of sales, compared to $1.6 million, or 26% of sales, in the year ago period. The increase in gross margin is primarily attributed to increased revenue during the first half of fiscal 2017 from new retail store customers and the exiting of a substantial number of underperforming low margin accounts during the previous fiscal year.

Net loss for the first six months of fiscal 2017 was ($614,000), or ($0.02) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(2.1 million), or ($0.08) per basic and diluted share, in the first six months of fiscal 2016.
