GOLDEN, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- iSatori, Inc. (OTCQB: IFIT), an emerging leader in the development and marketing of scientifically engineered nutritional supplements for healthier lifestyles, today announced second quarter results.
The Company reports that gross product revenues, prior to discounts, returns, and advertising trade promotions, for the second quarter of 2014 increased $1.2 million over the previous year or 47% to $3.7 million. Net revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were $2.9 million, which reflects a 28% increase over 2013 in the same quarter. The increase was due primarily to the accelerated sales of Bio-Gro and the introduction of two new products: (i) Amino-Amp and (ii) Isa-Test® DA3. Bio-Gro has been described as a category-defining sports nutrition product because it is not just another "me too" product; it is in a category of its own, using a new creation called "bio-active peptides" to enhance physical performance, strength, and muscular development. During the second quarter, the Company introduced five new flavored versions of Bio-Gro. Amino-Amp is designed to increase the recovery, athletic performance, and muscle-building potential for weight-training individuals. Isa-Test® DA3 is designed to stimulate the body's natural elevation of the muscle-building hormone testosterone.
Gross margin for the second quarter 2014 slightly declined from 59% to 56% as a percentage of net product revenues, due to product and channel mix. Nonetheless, gross profit in dollars increased 22% during the second quarter.
Selling and marketing expense increased in dollar terms and as a percent of net product revenue (from 13% to 17%). The increase was due in part to an increase in digital media advertising. Salaries increased in dollar terms but decreased as a percent of net product revenue (from 23% to 21%). Administrative expenses decreased both in dollar terms and as a percent of net product revenue (from 20% to 10%) due primarily to a decrease in professional fees. Overall, operating expenses increased in dollar terms but decreased as a percent of net product revenue (from 57% to 49%). Operating income improved 488% from $36,397 (2% of net product revenue) to $213,951 (7% of net product revenue).
Financing, interest, and other income (expense) increased from an expense of $97,523 (negative 4% of net product revenue) to income of $185,530 (6% of net product revenue) primarily as a result of a favorable change in the value of derivative instruments in 2014 and the absence of a one-time settlement expense that occurred in 2013. Earnings before taxes increased from a loss of $61,126 (negative 3% of net product revenue) to income of $399,481 (positive 14% of net product revenue). Net income increased from $133,222 (6% of net product revenue) to $336,099 (12% of net product revenue). Basic EPS increased from $0.01 to $0.03 and from $.01 to $.02 for fully diluted share.
For the six months ended June 30, 2013, net product revenue increased 37%. Gross margin increased from 57% of net product revenue to 60%. Income (loss) from operations increased from a loss of $44,317 to income of $568,212 (9% of revenue). Earnings before taxes increased from a loss of $314,112 to income of $751,452 (12% of net product revenue). Net income increased from negative $129,898 to $672,337 (11% of net product revenue) and from negative $0.01 to positive $0.05 per basic and fully diluted share.
Cash flow provided by operations was a positive $825,829 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to cash used of $163,475 for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Thus, the company's cash balance increased to $1,717,916 as of June 30, 2014. Accounts receivable decreased from $2,398,178 as of December 31, 2013, to $2,148,148 as of June 30, 2014. Inventory increased from $1,985,764 as of December 31, 2013, to $2,246,804 as of June 30, 2014. The company's current ratio increased from 1.92 as of December 31, 2013, to 2.05 as of June 30, 2014. Debt was virtually unchanged and shareholders' equity increased 26% for the six-month period.
Highlights from the second quarter of 2014 were:
- Second quarter net product revenue increased by 28% year over year.
- Operating income increased 488%.
- Reported 12% net income as a percentage of net revenues.
- Basic and fully diluted EPS doubled.
- Introduced new iSatori products and five new flavors of Bio-Gro.
- Introduced new diet support pill, Sinetrim, nationally into GNC, under the BioGenetic Laboratories brand.
- Two major scientific clinical studies were completed and presented regarding the safety and efficacy of Bio-Gro and Energize. Bio-Gro was described above. Energize is a time-released energy pill sold in Walgreens, Duane Reade, Rite-Aid, Walmart, and other retailers.
Beyond the Quarter
- In July, iSatori was nominated for the coveted "Breakout Brand of the Year" by Bodybuilding.com.
- Entered four new international countries for distribution of iSatori and BioGenetic Laboratories products, including the now available supply of Bio-Gro in GNC Canada.
Stephen Adele, founder and chief executive officer of iSatori, commented: "We are well on our way to achieving our goal of profitable growth. The iSatori team is very proud to have produced earnings of $672,337 on net product revenue of $6,096,740 for the first half of 2014. During the second half of 2014, our sales and marketing team will continue to work with our specialty retail partners and others to maximize the market impact of our category-defining product, Bio-Gro, and continue to fund ongoing research to discover the full market potential for this breakthrough supplement. In addition, the team will work to capitalize on the momentum of our new products, Amino-Amp and Isa-Test® DA3. Meanwhile, our research and development team expects to bring at least two more exciting new products to market this year. It's certainly exciting times at iSatori, and I'm excited about the future."
In 2013, the nutritional supplement market grew 7.5% to $34.9 billion (according the NBJ Annual SNWL Industry report). Sports nutrition comprised 13% of that total and is the fastest growing sector in nutritional supplements. The biggest sales channel for supplements is natural and specialty retail, e.g., GNC, followed by mass market retail, e.g., Walmart. Supplement manufacturers/marketers like iSatori comprise 72% of the supplement market. The remaining 28% is comprised of multi-level marketers and private labels. The 80/20 rule is definitely in effect with respect to the 72% of the supplement market controlled by manufacturers/marketers. The largest 16% of manufacturers/marketers generate 86% of the revenue while the smallest 84% of industry players generate 14% of the revenue.
A complete report of the Company's (GAAP) financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, are available via its quarterly report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today on Form 10-Q.

As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningf...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
