Thank you. Thank you Greg and thank you everyone for joining us today. I'd like to welcome everyone to our first quarter 2020 financial results conference call. The first quarter of fiscal 2020 was marked by continued strong sales into supermarkets and club stores nationwide while it's laying the groundwork for our launch into large and growing food service market later this year.
In fact, the food service market is just as big if not bigger than the retail food industry we currently serve, which nearly doubles our addressable market. As part of these efforts, we continue to strategically build our capabilities to serve as a strong growth in our market such as significant improvements we've made in our manufacturing capabilities, which provide us with the ability to more easily introduce new products.
These operational improvements are further being bolstered by renewed marketing campaigns and the launch of several new products, such as our recently unveiled pasta bowl offering at Stop N Shop stores. MamaMancini’s simple, nutritious and delicious Italian food products resonate well with the ethos of leading supermarkets globally, and as a result, we expect continued growth in our already impressive base of national and regional customers, which include giants like Walmart, Sam’s Club, Costco and BJ’s Club Stores, among others.
Supporting our strategic initiatives is a strengthened balance sheet, which includes a $3.5 million working capital line and a $2.5 million five-year note at friendly terms with M&T Bank. As we look towards the second quarter of 2020 and beyond, we are expecting significant revenue growth via the introduction of new products and customers, while also using our cash flow from operations to reduce our senior debt. Ultimately, we strongly believe that the steps we have taken should provide us with strong sales growth in the second quarter of 2020, while also positioning us for significant shareholder value creation over the long-term. Well, I am proud of what our team has already executed upon this year and the stage is set for significant growth in several segments.
Now before going further, I like to turn the call over to Larry Morgenstein, our Chief Financial Officer, to walk through some key financial details from the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

谢谢。谢谢Greg,感谢大家今天加入我们。我想欢迎大家参加2020年第一季度财务业绩电话会议。 2020财年第一季度的特点是全国超市和俱乐部商店的销售持续强劲,同时为今年晚些时候推出大型和不断增长的食品服务市场奠定了基础。

事实上,食品服务市场与我们目前所服务的零售食品行业一样大,甚至更大,这几乎是我们可寻址市场的两倍。作为这些努力的一部分,我们将继续战略性地建立我们的能力,以作为我们市场的强劲增长,例如我们在制造能力方面的重大改进,这使我们能够更容易地引入新产品。

通过重新开展营销活动和推出几款新产品,例如我们最近在Stop N Shop商店推出的意大利面碗,推动了这些运营改进。 MamaMancini的简单,营养和美味的意大利食品与全球领先超市的精神相呼应,因此,我们预计我们已经令人印象深刻的国内和区域客户群体将继续增长,其中包括沃尔玛,山姆俱乐部,好市多和BJ的俱乐部商店等。

支持我们的战略举措是加强资产负债表,其中包括350万美元的营运资金和250万美元的五年期票据,与M&T银行保持友好关系。在展望2020年第二季度及以后,我们期望通过引入新产品和客户实现显着的收入增长,同时利用我们的运营现金流来减少高级债务。最终,我们坚信我们采取的措施应该会在2020年第二季度为我们带来强劲的销售增长,同时也为我们在长期内创造重要的股东价值奠定了基础。好吧,我为我们的团队今年已经执行的工作感到自豪,并且阶段将在几个细分市场中实现显着增长。

在进一步讨论之前,我想把这个电话转交给我们的首席财务官拉里·摩根斯坦(Larry Morgenstein),以便从2020财年第一季度开始介绍一些重要的财务细节。

拉里·摩根斯坦

Thank you, Carl. Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2020, totaled $7.4 million compared to $7.7 million in the same year ago quarter. The revenue decline was largely precipitated by the recognition of approximately $2.1 million of revenue as a result of a one-time major merchandising event, our largest customer, and one additional shipping week in the first quarter of fiscal 2019, which did not recur in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Excluding these non-recurring events, period over period sales would have increased approximately 30% in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.
Gross profit totaled $2.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 as compared to $2.8 million in the same quarter a year-ago. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 totaled 32.2%, as compared to 36.5% in the same year-ago quarter. As we grow our sales, gross margins are expected to increase as a result of newly implemented and planned manufacturing plant efficiencies. Operating expenses totaled $1.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 as compared to $2.3 million in the same year-ago quarter. Operating expenses decreased primarily due to higher depreciation expenses last year, as well as higher consumer demonstration expenses related to one-time major sales events last year.
Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 totaled $0.4 million, as compared to $0.3 million in the same quarter a year-ago. The increase in net income was primarily due to a result of lower interest and amortization of debt discount expenses. Cash and cash equivalents totaled $0.7 million as of April 30, 2019, as compared to $0.6 million as of January 31, 2019. During the first quarter of 2020, we repaid $325,000 of our senior debt, while also already paying down $240,000 in the fiscal second quarter of 2020. The new financing we secured, which includes a $3.5 million working capital line and $2.5 million five-year note are at friendly terms has supported our strategic initiatives which we believe will pay dividends as we move throughout the year, starting with strong sales growth in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. In addition, we continually closely monitor our spending and implemented tight fiscal expense controls.
Cash flow from operations for the first quarter of 2020 increased significantly to $0.7 million, compared to $0.1 million in the same year-ago quarter.
Finally, before wrapping up the financial section I want to touch based on our payables which stood at 3.7 days outstanding on a consolidated basis in April 30, 2019 this compares to 33.6 days outstanding of January 31, 2019 and 32.4 days outstanding at April 30, 2018. We expect the payables outstanding to continue improving throughout fiscal year 2020 as we continue to extract better pricing in terms for our vendors.
That completes my comments. Let me turn over the call to Matt Brown, our President and Chief Operating Officer. Matt?

谢谢你,卡尔。 2020财年第一季度的收入总计740万美元,而去年同期为770万美元。收入下降的主要原因是,由于一次性主要商品活动(我们最大的客户)以及2019财年第一季度的一个额外运输周,收入约为210万美元。 2020财年第一季度。除了这些非经常性事件,2020财年第一季度的期间销售额将增加约30%。

2020财年第一季度的毛利润总额为240万美元,而去年同期为280万美元。 2020财年第一季度毛利润占收入的比例为32.2%,而去年同期为36.5%。随着我们的销售增长,由于新实施和计划的制造工厂效率,预计毛利率将增加。 2020财年第一季度的运营支出总额为190万美元,而去年同期为230万美元。营业费用减少的主要原因是去年折旧费用增加,以及去年一次性主要销售活动相关的消费者示范费用增加。

2020财年第一季度的净收入总计为40万美元,而去年同期为30万美元。净收入增加主要是由于债务折扣开支的利息减少及摊销所致。截至2019年4月30日,现金和现金等价物总计为70万美元,而截至2019年1月31日的现金和现金等价物为60万美元。在2020年第一季度,我们偿还了325,000美元的高级债务,同时还支付了24万美元的财政债务我们获得的新融资,其中包括350万美元的营运资金和250万美元的五年期票据,这些都是友好的,这有助于我们的战略举措,我们相信这些举措将在全年开展时带来红利,从2020财年第二季度销售强劲增长。此外,我们不断密切关注支出并实施严格的财政支出控制。

2020年第一季度运营现金流量大幅增加至70万美元,而去年同期为10万美元。

最后,在结束我想要触及的财务部分之前,根据我们在2019年4月30日合并的3.7天未付款项,相比于2019年1月31日的33.6天未偿还和4月30日的32.4天未付款, 2018.由于我们继续为供应商提供更好的定价,我们预计未偿还的应付款项将在整个2020财年继续改善。

这完成了我的评论。让我转交我们的总裁兼首席运营官马特布朗的电话。马特?

马特·布朗

Thanks Larry. A quick reminder for those who had not heard me talk about it over the past year, but for the last several quarters we have remained focused on plant expansion and efficiencies. With the necessary pieces in place we are now turning our focus for the remainder of fiscal 2020 towards expanding sales both in existing and new market segments. As we look towards the next quarter, we will expect to begin to see some of this sales growth unfold and we're very proud of the team for all the hard work to date.
Some of the things we focused on expanding are product offerings, upgrading our equipment and manufacturing capabilities and moving into new markets. On the product front, we initiated first production of several new products in Q1 such as the aforementioned pasta bowls by Carl for both retail and food service markets. Pasta bowls consist of spaghetti and meatballs, chicken parmesan over penne pasta, chicken alfredo over a fettuccine pasta, and a sausage pepper and onions also over a penne pasta. We have received encouraging feedback from a major restaurant chain for these pasta bowls and believe that these products will see wide adoption over time.
We also continue to expand our customer footprint. To that end in the first quarter of 2020 we commenced initial shipments of nine new products to newly acquired customers including Walmart, BJ’s Club Stores and Ahold, which we also know as Stop & Shop among other household names. As previously noted, we recently upgraded our equipment and expanded our production capabilities in a meaningful way all in an effort to increase our capacity while at the same time make us more efficient in production. This not only provides us with the ability to grow existing sales, but also move into other markets such as the large and growing food service market, which does present an incredible opportunity for MamaMancini's. I'll speak more on that food service market in the moment.
We are also proud to have finalized construction on our newly completed in house state-of-the-art laboratory, we intend to move all of our outside lab testing to this facility over time. Currently, we have moved all of the micro testing in house to this lab and continue to work towards the ability to run our nutritional analyses as well, which should save us somewhere in the range of 800 per analysis so over the course of the year that can be a substantial amount of savings. So in a nutshell our new production and lab efficiencies are expected to improve our margin profile while helping us to control quality and more rapidly expand.
Finally, as noted earlier, the food service market does present a significant opportunity for our company and one that we are aggressively pursuing. To that end in April, we hired Allan Sabatier, as our Vice President of Business Development to lead these efforts. The food service channel has the potential of being larger than the grocery store channel in which we currently compete and could more than double our addressable market. Allan brings a wealth of perishable foods industry experience to MamaMancini's, as a previous senior executive in sales and marketing for major food companies including Dole, Del Monte, Ready Pac Foods and ConAgra.

谢谢拉里。快速提醒那些在过去一年中没有听过我谈论它的人,但在过去的几个季度里,我们一直专注于工厂扩张和效率。有了必要的部分,我们现在将重点放在2020财年的剩余时间,以扩大现有和新市场的销售。在我们展望下一季度时,我们预计将开始看到部分销售增长,我们为团队迄今为止的所有努力工作感到非常自豪。

我们专注于扩展的一些事项是产品供应,升级我们的设备和制造能力以及进入新市场。在产品方面,我们在第一季度开始首次生产几种新产品,例如Carl为零售和食品服务市场提供的上述意大利面碗。意大利面碗包括意大利面和肉丸,意大利面通心粉上的鸡肉巴马干酪,意大利面条意大利面上的鸡肉阿尔弗雷多,以及通心粉上的香肠胡椒和洋葱。我们收到了一家主要连锁餐厅对这些意大利面碗的反馈,并相信这些产品会随着时间的推移而广泛采用。

我们还将继续扩大客户范围。为此,在2020年第一季度,我们开始向新收购的客户首次出货9种新产品,包括沃尔玛,BJ's Club Stores和Ahold,我们也称其为Stop&Shop和其他家喻户晓的名字。如前所述,我们最近对设备进行了升级,并以有意义的方式扩展了我们的生产能力,以便在提高产能的同时提高生产效率。这不仅为我们提供了增加现有销售的能力,而且还进入了其他市场,如大型和不断增长的食品服务市场,这为MamaMancini带来了难以置信的机会。我现在将在食品服务市场上发表更多话题。

我们也很自豪能够在我们新建的内部最先进的实验室完成建设,我们打算随着时间的推移将所有外部实验室测试移至该设施。目前,我们已将所有的微观测试内部移至本实验室,并继续致力于运行我们的营养分析,这应该可以节省我们在每个分析800的范围内,因此在一年中,可以节省大量的资金。因此,简而言之,我们的新生产和实验室效率有望提高我们的利润率,同时帮助我们控制质量并更快地扩展。

最后,如前所述,食品服务市场确实为我们公司和我们积极追求的公司提供了重要机遇。为此,我们在4月份聘请了Allan Sabatier作为我们的业务发展副总裁来领导这些工作。食品服务渠道有可能比我们目前竞争的杂货店渠道更大,并且可以使我们的可寻址市场增加一倍以上。 Allan为MamaMancini带来了丰富的易腐食品行业经验,曾担任Dole,Del Monte,Ready Pac Foods和ConAgra等主要食品公司的销售和营销高级主管。

Allan will focus on developing business opportunities with food service distributors, chain restaurants, convenience stores, health and elder care institutions, colleges and universities, corporate commissaries and kitchens, casinos and export distributors worldwide. Collectively with our manufacturing expansion complete and new products hitting the shelves, we now have the capacity and breadth of products to efficiently compete in this segment and aggregate additional market share.
At this point, I will turn the call back over to Carl for some discussions on our marketing initiatives before wrapping up the call for some questions and answers. Carl?

艾伦将专注于与全球的食品服务经销商,连锁餐厅,便利店,健康和老年护理机构,学院和大学,公司委员会和厨房,赌场和出口分销商发展商机。 随着我们的制造扩张完成和新产品上架,我们现在拥有能力和广度的产品,以有效地在这一领域竞争,并聚合额外的市场份额。

在这一点上,我将把这个电话转回给Carl,讨论我们的营销活动,然后再回答一些问题和答案。卡尔?

卡尔沃尔夫

Thank you. Thank you, Larry and Matt. As I noted in my opening remarks, we really laid the groundwork for a strong remainder fiscal 2020. As we gear up for growth, we've continued to implement a comprehensive marketing strategy, which we're very pleased with today. Among these initiatives are running up to 1,000 MamaMancini commercials in the first quarter, which were run through Easter and Passover holidays with SiriusXM. Commercials will run on such channels as Fox News; MSNBC; CNN: Headline News; the Howard Stern Channel; ESPN and up to 10 other channels. Sirius has a reach of 60 million, of course, in the U.S. and Canada as well.
We will continue to run similar campaigns in five more holiday periods including the past Memorial Day weekend throughout the year. These include 4 of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and the holiday period. We also continue in aggressive MamaMancini’s social media program on Facebook and Instagram.
So I am pleased to announce that we have close to 300,000 followers and our individual posts have got up to one million views. We can geo-target consumers or retailers within a five mile radius to help generate traffic for new items, promotions or special events. Another avenue we have aggressively pursued is direct to consumer marketing, such as the work we are doing regularly with QVC, the world's largest in this category. Dan Mancini, Co-Founder has promoted our natural authentic products up to six times per month and many of them have resulted in selling out in the past 18 months. As an example, our first time offering pasta sauces in jars in May. QVC is seen in 100 million homes across the country. We have set the stage for an incredible fiscal 2020 and look forward to continue operational execution and shareholder value creation over the long-term.
Now before wrapping the call up, I wanted to take this opportunity to invite any and all investors to a luncheon with tastings of our products on June 26, 2019 from 11:45 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The luncheon will be held at our corporate offices, located at 355 Meadowlands Parkway, East Rutherford, New Jersey, 07073. If you are interested in attending, please be sure to register by June 24, 2019, you can do so by e-mailing our Investor Relations firm, MZ Group at the following, MMMB@mzgroup.us.
With that, I'll turn it over to the operator. Operator?

谢谢。谢谢你,拉里和马特。正如我在开场白中所指出的那样,我们确实为2020财年的强势剩余奠定了基础。随着我们为增长做好准备,我们继续实施全面的营销战略,我们今天对此感到非常满意。在这些举措中,第一季度共播放了1,000个MamaMancini广告,这些广告在SiriusXM的复活节和逾越节假期中进行。商业广告将在福克斯新闻等频道播出; MSNBC; CNN:头条新闻;霍华德斯特恩海峡; ESPN和其他10个频道。当然,天狼星在美国和加拿大也有6000万。

我们将继续在五个假期期间开展类似的活动,包括全年过去的阵亡将士纪念日周末。其中包括7月4日,劳动节,感恩节和假期。我们还继续在Facebook和Instagram上进行积极的MamaMancini社交媒体计划。

所以我很高兴地宣布,我们有近300,000名粉丝,我们的个人帖子最多可以获得100万次观看。我们可以在五英里范围内对消费者或零售商进行地理定位,以帮助为新物品,促销或特殊活动产生流量。我们积极追求的另一条途径是直接面向消费者营销,例如我们定期与QVC合作,这是全球同类产品中最大的。联合创始人丹曼奇尼(Dan Mancini)每月最多推广我们的天然正宗产品六次,其中许多产品在过去18个月内销售一空。例如,我们第一次在5月份在罐子里提供意大利面酱。 QVC在全国有1亿家庭中出现。我们为2020财年创造了令人难以置信的财富,并期待在长期内继续实施运营和股东价值。

现在,在召开电话会议之前,我想借此机会邀请任何和所有投资者参加2019年6月26日上午11:45至中午12:00举行的产品品尝午餐会。东部时间。午餐会将在我们的公司办公室举行,地址为355 Meadowlands Parkway,East Rutherford,New Jersey,07073。如果您有兴趣参加,请务必在2019年6月24日前注册,您可以通过电子邮件进行注册我们的投资者关系公司,MZ集团,如下,MMMB @ mzgroup.us。

有了它,我会把它交给操作员。操作?

问答环节

Thank you. We will now begin the question-and-answer session. [Operator Instructions] The first question today comes from Howard Halpern with Taglich Brothers. Please go ahead.

谢谢。 我们现在开始问答环节。 [操作员说明]今天的第一个问题来自Howard Halpern和Taglich Brothers。 请继续。

Howard Halpern

Congratulations. Great start to the year, Carl.

恭喜。 卡尔,今年开局很棒。

卡尔沃尔夫

Thank you.

谢谢。

Howard Halpern

In terms of – you’re talking about significant growth in the second quarter year-over-year, we also see sequential growth from the first quarter $7.4 million?

就 - 你说的是第二季度同比大幅增长,我们也看到第一季度连续增长740万美元?

卡尔沃尔夫

Yes. Well, we're only six months into the second quarter, but on a very preliminary basis, it looks like we'll see sequential growth in the second quarter over the first.

是。 好吧,我们距离第二季度只有六个月,但在初步的基础上,看起来第二季度我们将看到第一季度的连续增长。

Howard Halpern

Okay. And now as you started to basically lay the groundwork for the food service market, what are some of the – I guess, early or initial segments that you're targeting that will bear fruit, I guess, first, is it distributors? Is it a college market? Can you talk a little bit about the sequence of events, I guess that you hope to achieve in the food service market?

好的。 现在,当你开始基本上为食品服务市场奠定基础时,我认为,我认为,早期或初始细分市场将会取得成果,我认为,首先,它是经销商吗? 这是一个大学市场吗? 你能谈谈一系列事件,我想你希望在食品服务市场上取得成功吗?

卡尔沃尔夫

Basically what you do is you set up a sales network first, an organization to sell to that market, then within each geographic area or national sales representatives. And then look at each of those various segments. So let's say you appoint a sales network in the New York metropolitan area or the Northeast, they'll look at all of those sub-segments. We are putting a special attention on convenience stores and we'll be at a major industry event in October on a convenience store show and we'll be participating in that show.
So for now our opportunities are open and we are in the process of more than exploring them. However, it does take a considerable amount of time and our projections do not show substantial increase sale in our projections for the year until this fall. And then even then, it will take a good year to really ramp this up.
However, as in many other sales situations, sometimes you just happen to have an event that folds out of the sky as you're making a presentation by saying, this is exactly what I need, ship next week. So you can't count on those. But anyway, we're being very conservative in our projections.

基本上,您所做的是首先建立一个销售网络,一个销售到该市场的组织,然后是每个地理区域或全国销售代表。然后看看每个细分市场。因此,假设您在纽约大都市区或东北地区指定销售网络,他们将查看所有这些子细分市场。我们正在特别关注便利店,我们将在10月的便利店展会上参加一个重要的行业活动,我们将参加该展会。

所以现在我们的机会是开放的,我们正在探索它们。然而,它确实需要相当长的时间,而且我们的预测并未显示我们对今年秋季的预测大幅增加。然后,即便如此,要想真正提升这一点还需要一个好年头。

然而,正如在许多其他销售情况中一样,有时候你恰好有一个事件在你做演示时会折叠出天空说,这正是我需要的,下周发货。所以你不能指望那些。但无论如何,我们的预测非常保守。

Howard Halpern

Okay. And with new products are you still – are you working on additional new products to continually evolve your portfolio?

好的。 您还在使用新产品 - 您是否正在开发其他新产品以不断改进您的产品组合?

卡尔沃尔夫

We're working on plant products for – plant-based products in meatballs and Italian meatloaf and other areas which we hope to develop in the near future.

我们正在研究植物产品 - 肉丸和意大利肉饼的植物产品以及我们希望在不久的将来发展的其他领域。

Howard Halpern

Okay. One, I guess financial question in there in the gross margin, while the cost of sales segment, what is approximately the level of depreciation that is occurring because of all the plant improvements that were made?

好的。 一,我认为毛利率存在财务问题,而销售部门的成本,大致是由于所有工厂改进而发生的折旧水平?

卡尔沃尔夫

We have about $180,000 a quarter in depreciation right now. Okay. And in prior years, it was classified at – most of it was classified as an operating expense, right. And starting in the third quarter of last year, we classify that as a cost of goods. So if you were to compare operating expenses and gross profit, you had a change of about $150,000 from last year.

我们现在每季度折旧约180,000美元。 好的。 在过去几年中,它被归类为 - 大部分被归类为经营费用,对。 从去年第三季度开始,我们将其归类为商品成本。 因此,如果您要比较营业费用和毛利,那么您从去年开始的变化约为150,000美元。

Howard Halpern

Well, keep up the great work and I look forward to future reports.

好吧,继续做好工作,我期待未来的报道。

卡尔沃尔夫

Thank you.

谢谢。

会议主持员

This concludes our question-and-answer session. I would now like to turn the conference back over to Carl Wolf for any closing remarks.

这就是我们的问答环节。 我现在想把会议转回给Carl Wolf,以便发表任何结束语。

卡尔沃尔夫

I just would like to mention that our sales with our largest customers have increased year-over-year about over 20%, excluding the one-time merchandising events of last year. So our core business appears to be very strong. And with that, I'd like to thank everyone for coming and I'm looking forward to update you on our next quarter.

我只想提一下,我们与最大客户的销售额同比增长超过20%,不包括去年的一次性商品推广活动。 所以我们的核心业务看起来非常强大。 有了这个,我要感谢大家的到来,我期待着在下个季度为您提供最新信息。
