Cranford, New Jersey — May 17, 2022 — TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. (OTCQX Symbol: TOFB) issued its results for the thirteen weeks ended April 2, 2022 today.
Tofutti Brands reported net sales for the thirteen weeks ended April 2, 2022 increased by $313,000, or 10%, to $3,463,000, from net sales of $3,150,000 for the thirteen weeks ended April 3, 2021. Sales of our vegan cheese products increased to $2,916,000 in the 2022 period from $2,720,000 in the 2021 period. Sales of our frozen dessert and frozen food products, which consist primarily of frozen dessert products, increased to $547,000 in the thirteen weeks ended April 2, 2022 from $430,000 for the thirteen weeks ended April 3, 2021. We anticipate an increase in sales dollars over the balance of the current fiscal year as our price increases take full effect.
Our gross profit decreased to $857,000 in the period ended April 2, 2022 from $1,001,000 in the period ended April 3, 2021. Our gross profit percentage was 25% for the period ending April 2, 2022 compared to 32% for the period ending April 3, 2021. The decrease in both our gross profit and gross profit percentage, were caused by the substantial increases in certain ingredients and freight expense.
We had net income of $205,000, or $0.04 per share (basic and diluted), for the thirteen weeks ended April 2, 2022, compared to net income of $80,000, or $0.02 (basic and diluted) per share, for the thirteen weeks ended April 3, 2021.
As of April 2, 2022, we had approximately $1,589,000 in cash and our working capital was approximately $4,533,000, compared with approximately $1,698,000 in cash and working capital of $4,326,000 at January 1, 2022. The decrease in cash during the thirteen weeks ended April 2, 2022 was primarily due to reduced accounts receivable collections and increased inventory on hand.
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 April 2, 2022. We believe that the production difficulties that impacted our revenues in 2021 have been resolved and that we are poised to achieve improved revenues,” concluded Mr. Kass.
