Eastside Distilling Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

·9 min read

Company to Host Conference Call at 5:00pm ET Today

PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Eastside Distilling, Inc. (NASDAQ: EAST) ("Eastside" or the "Company"), a consumer focused beverage company that builds craft inspired experiential brands and high quality artisan products around premium spirits and ready-to-drink "RTD" craft cocktails, reported third quarter 2020 financial results for the period ended September 30, 2020.

Third Quarter 2020 Highlights vs. Same Year-Ago Quarter

  • Signed an LOI on the exit of Redneck Riviera Business

  • Increased sales despite challenging business environment

  • Continued sequential improvement in EBITDA

"The results for the third quarter reflect the continued path to reduce negative cash flow while investing in growth," said Paul Block, Eastside's CEO. "Despite the COVID pandemic, the tide continues to rise for spirits consumption and Craft Canning. As we continue to bring leadership, strategy and strong tactical execution to Eastside, we believe we can capture a disproportionate share of market and continue to accelerate topline growth."

Financial Results

Revenues in the third quarter increased +7.0% to $4.8 million from $4.5 million in the year-ago quarter. This was primarily due to increases in canning revenue driven by the continued shift of craft breweries toward canning and away from kegs. Gross profit in the third quarter declined –5.3% to $1.6 million compared to $1.7 million in the year-ago quarter due to changes in margin mix in spirits and reinvestment in Craft Canning to meet the increased demand.

Total operating expenses in the third quarter declined -37.5% to $3.1 million from $5.0 million in the year-ago quarter. This reduction is due to lower marketing spending, reduced legal and professional fees, and lower rent and insurance expenses partially offset by higher non-cash depreciation and amortization expenses.

Net loss including discontinued operations in the third quarter was ($1.8) million or ($0.17) per share compared to ($3.5) million or ($0.38) per share in the year-ago quarter.

EBITDA improved to ($0.7) million compared to ($2.4) million in the year-ago quarter and increased +$0.2 million sequentially from last quarter.

The Company's cash used in operations was ($2.8) million in the first nine months of 2020 compared to ($7.9) million in the comparable year-ago period, an improvement of $5.1 million. The Company's cash balance at end of the third quarter was $1.0 million, an increase of +233.3% compared to $0.3 million in the year ago quarter.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Eastside Distilling's management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various financial metrics. In addition to the Company's GAAP results, management also considers the non-GAAP measure of adjusted EBITDA as a supplement to GAAP results. Management believes this non-GAAP measure provides useful information about the Company's operating results and assists investors in comparing the Company's performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that it does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance.

The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation. The table below provides a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Conference Call

The Company will hold a conference call today to discuss these results.
