Tofutti Announces 2013 Results

CRANFORD, N.J., March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. (NYSE MKT Symbol: TOF) issued its results for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2013 today.

Net sales for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2013 were approximately $14.7 million, an increase of approximately $349,000, or 2%, from net sales of $14.3 million for the fiscal year ended December 29, 2012.  The increase in sales was primarily due to the increase of sales in our soy-cheese product line. Our frozen dessert business continues to be negatively impacted by the overall sluggishness of sales in the ice cream category.  The Company's management believes sales will improve during fiscal year 2014 due to the introduction of new products and price increases that will be instituted in the second and third quarters of 2014.

The Company's gross profit in the year ended December 28, 2013 increased slightly by $14,000 to $3,965,000, reflecting the increased level of sales.  Gross profit percentage for the year ended December 28, 2013 was 27% compared to  28% for the year ended December 29, 2012.  The decrease was primarily due to an increase in freight out expense and was also impacted by price increases for certain key ingredients and packaging costs.  Price increases were implemented for some products in the first quarter of 2014, which the Company believes will help improve 2014 profit margins. For fiscal 2013, the Company had a loss before income taxes of $899,000 compared to a loss before incomes taxes of $912,000 in fiscal 2012. In fiscal 2013, the Company had a net loss of $908,000 ($0.18 per share) compared to a net loss of $824,000 ($0.16 per share) in fiscal 2012.

As of December 28, 2013, the Company had approximately $214,000 in cash and cash equivalents, and its working capital was $2,701,000 compared with $471,000 in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $3,609,000 at December 29, 2012, a decrease of $908,000 from December 29, 2012.

"Our efforts to increase sales gained traction in 2013 as our revenues increased slightly over 2012. This trend continued in the first two months of fiscal 2014 as we continue to see increased interest in our soy-cheese product line. We are also optimistic about the continued acceptance of our nondairy and gluten-free ricotta cheese products which were introduced in 2013," said David Mintz, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Tofutti Brands. "Beginning in the second quarter of 2014, we plan to introduce  a new line of frozen dessert pints, a new frozen dessert stick novelty, shredded soy-cheeses, additional flavors of soy-cheese slices and new frozen prepared entrees that incorporate our soy-cheese products. We are cautiously optimistic about our prospects for increased sales and improved operating metrics in 2014," concluded Mr. Mintz.
