Cranford, New Jersey, Nov. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. (OTCQB Symbol: TOFB) issued its results for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2021 today.
Tofutti Brands reported net sales for the thirteen weeks ended October 2, 2021 of $3,356,000 compared to net sales of $3,152,000 for the thirteen weeks ended September 26, 2020. The increase is mainly attributable to increases in sales in our vegan cheese categories and frozen desserts. Sales of vegan cheese products increased by $161,000 to $2,816,000 in the 2021 period from $2,655,000 in the 2020 period. Frozen dessert sales increased by $43,000 to $540,000 in the thirteen weeks ended October 2, 2021 from $497,000 for the thirteen weeks ended September 26, 2020.
The Company’s gross profit decreased to $818,000 for the thirteen weeks ended October 2, 2021 from $1,033,000 for the thirteen weeks ended September 26, 2020, and its gross profit percentage decreased to 24% for the thirteen weeks ending October 2, 2021 compared to 33% for the thirteen weeks ending September 26, 2020. Sudden cost increases due to COVID-related supply chain issues for ingredients used in the production of our products and continued higher freight expenses have negatively impacted our gross profit. We anticipate these ingredient cost increases and higher freight expenses will continue for the balance of the year and at least into the first half of 2022.
The Company had net income of $120,000, or $0.02 per share (basic and diluted), for the thirteen weeks ended October 2, 2021, compared to net income of $220,000, or $0.04 per share (basic and diluted), for the thirteen weeks ended September 26, 2020.
Net sales for the thirty-nine week period ended October 2, 2021 were $9,533,000 compared to net sales of $9,621,000 for the thirty-nine week period ended September 26, 2020, a decrease of $88,000. Sales of vegan cheese products increased slightly to $8,033,000 in the 2021 period from $8,016,000 in the 2020 period. Sales of our frozen dessert and frozen food products decreased to $1,500,000 for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2021 from $1,605,000 for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 26, 2020. The decrease in our sales for the 2021 thirty-nine-week period was mostly due to the decrease in frozen dessert sales resulting from the discontinuance of two specialty items in the 2021 period due to their declining sales.
The Company’s gross profit for the thirty-nine week period ending October 2, 2021 was $2,577,000 compared to $3,044,000 for the thirty-nine week period ending September 26, 2020. The Company’s gross profit percentage decreased to 27% for the thirty-nine weeks ending October 2, 2021 compared to 32% for the thirty-nine weeks ending September 26, 2020.
The Company had net income of $228,000, or $0.04 per share (basic and diluted), for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 2, 2021 compared to net income of $410,000, or $0.08 per share (basic and diluted), for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 26, 2020.
As of October 2, 2021, the Company had approximately $3,009,000 in cash and our working capital was approximately $4,886,000, compared with approximately $1,459,000 in cash and working capital of $4,639,000 at January 2, 2021. The increase in cash during the first thirty-nine weeks of 2021 was due to the $1,500,000 provided by operating activities and 50,000 provided by investing activities, which benefitted from improved accounts receivable collection, and increased further due to reduced inventory and income taxes payable and an increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses.
Mr. Steven Kass, Chief Executive and Financial Officer of the Company stated, “We are pleased with our continued success in generating cash from operations which has resulted in our strong cash and working capital position at October 2, 2021. We believe that the production difficulties that impacted our revenues earlier in 2021 have been resolved and that we are poised to achieve improved revenues during the remainder of this year,” concluded Mr. Kass.
