Company Achieves Sequential and Year-Over-Year Revenue Improvement in Second Quarter of 2021
Continued Strong Improvement in Revenue and Operating Cash Flow Expected in Back Half of 2021
Company Has Generated Over $1.0 Million in Revenue to Date in Third Quarter of 2021 as it Enters the Upcoming School Year and Expects to be in Double the Number of School Locations
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Barfresh Food Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “Barfresh”) (OTCQB: BRFH), a manufacturer of frozen, ready-to-blend and ready-to-drink beverages, is providing a business update in conjunction with the filing of its form 10-Q for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.
Riccardo Delle Coste, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We enter the second half of this fiscal year financially strong with approximately $7.0 million in cash and a clear path to increased top line growth and improved bottom line. We believe our enhanced balance sheet and clean debt structure enable us to meet the requirements to list on a National exchange and we have submitted our application commencing the necessary steps in achieving an uplisting. While our bulk serve customers have been slower to come back online we are encouraged to see continued sequential growth of our Twist & Go and single serve products in the third quarter of 2021. We have already recorded $1.0 million in revenue in the third quarter and we are just entering the beginning of the school selling season when we expect to be in double the number of locations. We are extremely well positioned to achieve record revenue in the back half of this year driven primarily by new and existing school locations.”
Revenue for the second quarter of 2021 increased 157% to $1.3 million, compared to $506,000 in the COVID-19 affected second quarter of 2020. The increase in revenue is the result of orders for Twist & Go product in the school channel, as well as the gradual return in sales of the Company’s single serve product compared to the COVID-19 affected quarter last year. Gross margins for second quarter of 2021 were 43%, compared to 23% for the second quarter of 2020. The increase in gross margins was due to the startup expenses for the Company’s Twist & Go and WHIRLZ 100% Juice Concentrates recorded in the second quarter of 2020. The Company expects gross profit margins for the second half of 2021 to stay around 40%.
Net loss for the second quarter of 2021 improved to $297,000, as compared to a loss of $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2020, and compared to a loss of approximately $600,00 in the second quarter of 2019. The Company continued to reduce core operating expenses, reducing total G&A expenses in the second quarter of 2021 by 6% compared with the prior year period.
As of June 30, 2021, the Company had approximately $7.0 million of cash, and approximately $1.0 million of inventory on its balance sheet. The Company announced on June 3, 2021 that it had completed a private placement of approximately $6.0 million of common stock with no warrant coverage. In addition, the Company also negotiated the conversion of approximately $0.7 million and the retirement of approximately $0.8 million of existing debt and interest. This transaction eliminated all prior convertible debt and related interest. Additionally, the Company’s first Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan of $0.57 million was forgiven in the second quarter 2021 and the Company expects its second PPP loan for $0.57 million to be forgiven in the second half of 2021. The Company expects to be debt free once the second PPP loan is forgiven.
The above information is presented in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. In order to aid in the understanding of the Company’s business performance, the Company has also presented below certain non-GAAP measures, including EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are reconciled in the table below to comparable GAAP measures. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to the investor because it is directly reflective of the cash flow of the Company. The primary factors in reconciling these items are non-cash costs, including stock compensation, stock issued for services, and gain or loss on derivatives. Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, income from operations or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of liquidity.
Adjusted EBITDA improved to a loss of $386,000 for the second quarter of 2021, compared to a loss of approximately $888,000 for the second quarter of 2020. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net (loss) is provided below.
