National Beverage Corp. Reports 20 Quarters Of Revenue And Net Income Growth

National Beverage Corp. (NASDAQ: FIZZ) today released financial results for the period ended July 28, 2012:

For the first quarter-

  • Revenues increased to $182.8 million up 8.1%
  • Net income increased to $ 14.4 million up 7.1%
  • Earnings per share increased to $.31 up 6.9%

The following are excerpts taken from a recent management luncheon hosted by Nick A. Caporella, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “In conclusion, the most profound comment that I can make about our Company is . . . we have learned to manage this business in the most dire of circumstances while continually growing profits . . . and enhancing shareholder value! We are not only flavor champs, but quite adept at juggling!

For the Trailing Twelve Months –
Sales   EBITDA *   Cash Flow*
$642.7 million $79.1 million $69.6 million

Wars, droughts, imploding governments, runaway commodities, You Name It crisis – and we scramble, juggle, switch gears – yes, we do it all and successfully advance revenues and profits.

An example of change: First quarter FY2003 Gross Operating Profit Margin was 33.2% compared to 31.9% for the like period FY2013 (recent quarter) while costs of our three primary commodities increased 125%, 29% and 19% respectively. This confirms the persistent diligence and management focus required of Team National.

  • So until things are more normalized, just do this . . . analyze our revenues, net income, inventory turns and (days outstanding) receivables. Everything else will shift around a bit until normal returns to our business climate again. I am very pleased FY2013 ‘ kicks off’ with 20 quarters of sales and net income growth.
For the Trailing Twelve Months –
Market Cap./EBITDA*   Operating Income   Current Ratio
8.7x $68.4 million 2.1/1

Crisis sharpens our wit and resolve during these chaotic times . . . the ‘Refresh’ mode is enabled, our Balance Sheet strong and Innovation the catalyst – who other than Team National to consistently deliver shareholder value in the coming months,” Caporella was quoted as saying.

National Beverage’s iconic brands are the genuine essence . . . of America. Our company is highly innovative as a pace-setter in the changing soft-drink industry, featuring refreshment products that are geared toward the lifestyle/health-conscious consumer. Shasta® – Faygo® – Everfresh® and LaCroix® are aligned with Rip It® energy products to make National Beverage . . . America’s Flavor•Favorite – soft-drink company.
