Landec's Lifecore Subsidiary Shifting Shipments From Our Second Fiscal Quarter To Our Third Fiscal Quarter

MENLO PARK, Calif., Oct. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Landec Corporation (Nasdaq:LNDC), a materials science company that develops and markets innovative and patented products for food and biomedical applications, today announced that certain customers of its wholly-owned biomaterials subsidiary , Lifecore Biomedical, Inc., have requested that shipments originally planned to be shipped in November be shipped in December, which will result in revenues and profits planned for the second quarter being recognized in the third quarter. Therefore, approximately $3.0 million of gross profit is being shifted from Landec's second fiscal quarter to Landec's third fiscal quarter.

Gary Steele, Landec Chairman and CEO, explained, "The shift in Lifecore shipments has no impact on Landec's overall guidance for fiscal year 2013, which is for Landec to grow revenues by approximately 30% and net income by 25% to 35% compared to fiscal year 2012, nor does the shift have any impact on our guidance for Lifecore for all of fiscal year 2013, which is to grow revenues by approximately 15% while maintaining historical margins."

Continued Steele, "Commercial shipments to Lifecore customers have begun for the products which recently received FDA clearance. Once fully commercialized, Lifecore expects to generate annual revenues from these products of approximately $5 million to $6 million with margins consistent with its historical margins for aseptically-filled products."
