EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Nov. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MamaMancini's Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") (OTCQB:MMMB), a manufacturer and marketer of specialty pre-prepared, frozen and refrigerated "all natural" food products (as defined by the United States Department of Agriculture), today announced its estimated sales for the third quarter ending October 31, 2014. The Company had estimated sales of $3.7 million versus prior year comparable period ending September 30, 2014 of $2.168 million.
The Company estimates it's net loss for the quarter at $700,000 or $.03 per share, versus a loss of $494,000 or $.02 a share in the prior year's quarter ending September 30. This year's loss included a one-time charge of $99,000 for early termination of its credit facility, as well as costs associated with introduction of new placements.
The increase in the volume of sales principally resulted from the continued expansion of its products into new distribution channels across the country as well as heavy merchandising activity with box store accounts.
The Company's new gluten free products appear to be selling well where placed and the Company has now received new authorizations on its pasta entrée items.
We encourage you to read our full financial statements and footnotes which are expected to be published in December.
It is important to note that quarterly revenue in the Company's business is subject to variability given that the Company works with a large number of mass-market retailers. Each retailer has purchasing and promotion plans that become active in different months and quarters throughout the year. Consequently, from time-to-time there can be a concentration of orders in certain quarters resulting in uneven revenue results. Recognizing that revenue may not be evenly distributed on a quarterly basis, the Company's overarching goal is to achieve consistent annual revenue growth.
