Expects to Achieve Record Quarterly Revenue in Third Quarter and Improved Gross Margins

Company Enters into New Manufacturing Agreement to Meet Stronger Demand and Improve Efficiencies

LOS ANGELES, July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Barfresh Food Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “Barfresh”) (Nasdaq: BRFH), a provider 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, 2022.

Management Comments

Riccardo Delle Coste, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We achieved sequential and year-over-year revenue improvement in the second quarter of 2022 with revenue increasing 115% compared to the same period last year, despite the continuing industry wide supply chain issues impacting our ability to fulfill all immediate orders. In order to offset a portion of the inflationary pressures we and our industry are facing, we began implementing price increases across all product offerings at the end of the first quarter and these are now fully implemented as we enter the third quarter.

Mr. Delle Coste continued, “Our new manufacturing agreement will enable us to significantly expand our production capabilities in a phased approach, positioning us to properly partner with larger school districts and improve cost efficiencies in the back half of this year.   We believe the back half of this year is going to generate sequential top line growth and improvements in our gross and operating margins as we better leverage our recently added infrastructure. We are very well positioned as schools begin to re-open due to our strong inventory position and the additional manufacturing capacity we are bringing on in the coming months.”

Second Quarter of 2022 Financial Results

Revenue for the second quarter of 2022 increased 115% to $2.8 million, compared to $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase in revenue is the result of higher growth in Twist & Go sales in the school channel, as well as the gradual return in sales of the Company’s single serve and bulk products. Gross margins for second quarter of 2022 were 32%, similar to the first quarter of 2022, and lower than the 43% for the second quarter of 2021. The year over year decline in gross margins was due to higher raw material and packaging costs from the unprecedented market costs and labor shortages as well as higher sales volume and product mix.

Selling and marketing for the second quarter of 2022 increased to $0.7 million, compared to $0.4 million in the second quarter of 2022. The increase is a result of increased sales and marketing personnel costs and outbound freight, elevated as a result of our growth in revenue as well as inflationary pressures. The Company is working to offset elevated product and freight costs by implementing a number of initiatives, to include improving packaging, equipment updates and ingredient and freight optimization.   G&A expenses for the second quarter of 2022 increased to $0.8 million, compared to $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase in G&A was driven by an increase in personnel costs compared to a pullback in the COVID-19 affected quarter last year, including non-cash stock-based compensation. Net loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $0.7 million, as compared to a loss of $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2021.

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had approximately $3.7 million of cash, and approximately $1.6 million of inventory on its balance sheet.

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 performance of the Company. The exclusion of certain items including stock compensation, stock issued for services, gain or loss from debt extinguishments, gain or loss on derivative and the costs of NASDAQ uplift in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s core business performance. Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss, loss from operations or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of approximately $431,000 for the second quarter of 2022, compared to a loss of approximately $386,000 for the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2022 was negatively impacted by increased personnel costs, raw material costs and increased shipping and storage costs. A reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA is provided below.
