First Quarter Fiscal 2014
Net revenues increased 39.1% to $67.5 million, compared to $48.5 million in the prior year period. The increase in net revenues was due to a 55.1% increase in the healthy/natural product portfolio. Gross profit as a percent of net revenues decreased 110 basis points to 17.1% compared to 18.2% in the prior year. This decline is due to a decrease in gross margin in the snack segment related to weaker product sales mix, including a reduction in sales of certain more profitable licensed products and increased manufacturing of co-packed products.
