Tootie Pie Company Annual Revenues Up 35%













SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Tootie Pie Company, Inc. (OTCQB:TOOT) reported that annual revenue jumped 35%, to $2,732,858 for fiscal year ending March, 2012, versus $2,027,547 for March, 2011.

"We made a significant investment in our Tootie Pie Gourmet Cafes in the last couple of years and that investment is paying off," reported Don L. Merrill, Jr. President & CEO. "Our Cafes are doing well and we are very excited about the upcoming holiday pie season."

Cash Flow (EBITDA and other non cash items) improved 33% to a loss of $363,116 for the year ending March 31, 2012, versus $539,752 for the same period in 2011.

"Retail sales jumped 88%, which contributed to a nice improvement to our bottom line," Merrill continued. "I expect these trends to continue into our current year and I believe we have the components in place to achieve profitability."

Gross Profit came in at a record $1,697,382 for the year, up 26% from $1,251,798 for the prior year. Net loss, which includes depreciation, amortization and other noncash items, improved 21% to $861,262 for the twelve months ending March 31, 2012, versus $1,094,001 for the twelve months in 2011.  The  improvement was principally due to a reduction in non-recurring start up related and operating expenses incurred to open, staff and operate additional Cafe locations, as well as an 87.8% increase in higher margin retail sales, coming primarily through our Cafes.
