Company Reports Net Income of $507,000 in 2018 Compared to

Net Income of $704,000 in Prior Year


Cranford, New Jersey — March 29, 2019 — TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. (OTCQB Symbol: TOFB) issued its results for the fiscal year ended December 29, 2018 today.


The Company reported net income of $507,000 ($0.10 per share) on net sales of $13,066,000 for the fiscal year ended December 29, 2018 compared to net income of $704,000 ($0.14 per share) on net sales of $14,107,000 for the fiscal year ended December 30, 2017.


Sales of vegan cheese products decreased to $10,811,000 in fiscal 2018 from $11,237,000 in fiscal 2017 and sales of our frozen dessert and frozen food product lines decreased to $2,255,000 in fiscal 2018 from $2,870,000 in fiscal 2017. Our frozen dessert business continues to be negatively impacted by the overall sluggish sales in the ice cream category, as well as from the unavailability of some items due to a switchover from one co-packer to another.


The Company’s gross profit for the year ended December 29, 2018 decreased by $636,000 to $4,104,000, and its gross profit percentage decreased to 31% from 34% for the year ended December 30, 2017. Gross profit and gross profit percentage were negatively impacted by the down time resulting from the initial start-up costs incurred in connection with re-starting the production of Tofutti Cuties and Yours Truly Cones with a new co-packer.


As of December 29, 2018, the Company had approximately $558,000 in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $3,896,000 compared with $1,414,000 in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $3,721,000 at December 30, 2017.


“Despite a number of events that impacted the sales of our Better Than Cream Cheese, Sour Supreme and frozen dessert products, we were able to report net income of $507,000 in fiscal 2018. We believe that these issues are substantially behind us. We plan to introduce our new Dippity Do Dah Cheese Dips and reintroduce our Tofutti MarryMe Bars, Chocolate Fudge Treats, and Totally Fudge Pops in the second quarter of 2019 in time for the summer season and look forward to a better 2019,” concluded David Mintz, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Tofutti Brands.
