TOFUTTI Announces 2009 Results

CRANFORD, N.J., April 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. (NYSE AMEX: TOF) issued its results for the fiscal year ended January 2, 2010 today.

Financial Highlights for the Year

  • Operating income increased to $835,000 in fiscal 2009 compared to $435,000 in fiscal 2008
  • Net income increased to $506,000 in fiscal 2009 compared to $217,000 in fiscal 2008
  • Revenues for the year were $18.6 million compared to $19.6 million for fiscal 2008

Net sales for the fiscal year ended January 2, 2010 were $18,617,000, a decrease of $992,000, or 5%, from the company's net sales of $19,609,000, for the fifty-two weeks ended December 27, 2008.  The reduction in sales was caused by the general economic conditions and the discontinuance of a number of slower moving, less profitable products during 2009.  Although the discontinuance of these slower moving items contributed to reduced sales in fiscal 2009, it also contributed to an improvement in our gross profit percentage for the year.  The company's gross profit percentage increased to 30% in fiscal 2009 from 27% in fiscal 2009.  

For fiscal 2009, the company's income before income taxes increased to $835,000 from $435,000 in fiscal 2008. Net income for fiscal 2009 increased to $506,000 ( $0.10 per share) compared to $217,000 ( $0.04 per share) for fiscal 2008.  

"The last fiscal year was a difficult one for both our industry and our country. The entire frozen dessert industry was subject to significant price increases to certain key ingredients and packaging, due mainly to supply shortages as a result of political events in certain foreign countries, the general economic situation here in the United States and the fluctuating cost of petroleum, from which a number of our packaging items are produced. Despite the poor economic conditions and overall decrease in sales of frozen desserts, we were able to maintain our sales levels, when taking into account our decision to continue to shed slower moving, less profitable products and were able to improve our operating metrics and achieve a higher net income. We were also able to increase on cash position in order to provide us with adequate working capital in this difficult economic climate.  Based on our improved operating results, we continue to believe that the business plan we formulated two years ago, to concentrate on our core business of non-dairy frozen desserts and soy-cheese products, will drive the growth in our sales and operating income," said David Mintz, the Company's Chairman and CEO.  

TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. is principally involved in the development, production and marketing of TOFUTTI brand soy-based, dairy-free frozen desserts, soy-based dairy free cheese products and other soy-based, dairy-free food products.  TOFUTTI products are sold in grocery stores, supermarkets, health and convenience stores throughout the United States and in approximately twenty-five other countries.

Some of the statements in this press release concerning the Company's future prospects are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements.  Actual results may vary significantly based upon a number of factors including, but not limited to business conditions both domestic and international, competition, changes in product mix or distribution channels, resource constraints encountered in promoting and developing new products and other risk factors detailed in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its annual report on Form 10-K.
