Carl Wolf, Chief Executive Officer of MamaMancini's, commented, "The financial and operational results of the third quarter were excellent, and they continue the growth trajectory of the past year. Revenue increased 61% versus last year’s third quarter, gross profit increased 40%, and net income increased 152%; making this our fifth consecutive profitable quarter. We are pleased with the consistent expansion in our most important growth metrics during the past year and we have every expectation of continuing progress.

Results for the third quarter were also impacted positively by the placement of additional products in major grocery retailers including Sam's Club, Costco, HyVee, Publix, Whole Foods, The Fresh Market, Ahold (Stop & Shop) and QVC. We are pleased to continue to penetrate our target markets of prepared foods and delis on the periphery of grocery stores throughout the country. Major grocery retailers are embracing our products as their nutritional, taste and convenience profiles continue to attract new customers. The prepared foods section is the fastest growing section of grocery stores as consumers increasingly choose ready-to-serve meals to accommodate their very busy work and family schedules.

The integration of the Joseph Epstein Foods Enterprise (“JEFE”) into MamaMancini’s operations is progressing on a seamless track. We expect that a fully integrated manufacturing operation will increase margins and be immediately accretive to our earnings and shareholders in the coming quarters. As with any high growth company, we may, from time to time, experience minor obstacles in expanding our operations to efficiently meet the expanding demand for our products. However, we believe that we have the experienced personnel that will enable us to successfully navigate any manufacturing bottlenecks that may arise."

Mr. Wolf concluded, “Our strategic plan continues to gain traction. We have now reported profitability in each of the last five consecutive quarters. We remain focused on execution and timely delivery of product to our customers. We expect continued strong revenue growth and seeing the positive impact of operational efficiencies as we go forward. We expect to conclude fiscal 2018 on a strong note.”

The Company has sold into approximately 43,500 SKU’s in 12,200 retail and grocery locations at October 31, 2017 as compared to approximately 37,700 SKU’s in 11,400 retail and grocery locations at October 31, 2016. Gross profit for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was $2.4 million, or 32% of sales, compared to $1.7 million, or 37% of sales, in the year ago period. Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was $418,000, compared to an operating income of $244,000 in the third quarter of fiscal 2017. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was $203,000, compared to a net income of $81,000 in the third quarter of fiscal 2017.

Gross profit for the first nine months of fiscal 2018 was $6.3 million, or 32% of sales, compared to $4.5 million, or 36% of sales, in the year ago period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company uses Cash EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company defines Cash EBITDA as earnings before income taxes, depreciation and amortization plus any non-cash stock payments for expenses. The Company believes that the use of Cash EBITDA is useful to investors and other users of its financial statements in evaluating the Company's operating performance because it provides them with an additional tool to compare business performance across companies and across periods. The Company uses Cash EBITDA in conjunction with traditional GAAP operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of its performance, for planning purposes, including the preparation of its annual operating budget, and to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies. Management does not place undue reliance on Cash EBITDA as its only measure of operating performance. Cash EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.

Pro-Forma Results including JEFE
The Pro-Forma results which include the consolidation of the results of JEFE are based on preliminary financial information that the Company has received from JEFE. These financial results are subject to changes based upon an audit of the results and publishing of the Company’s audited consolidated financial results for the current fiscal year ending January 31, 2018. The acquisition of JEFE closed on November 1, 2017 and, as a result, the Company’s published consolidated financial results for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2017 do not include the financial results of JEFE for those periods.

Conference Call
The Company has scheduled a conference call for Monday, December 18, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. ET, to review the results.

Interested parties may participate on the conference call by dialing (844) 889-4326 or (412) 317-9264. A replay of the conference call will be available by dialing (877) 344-7529 or (412) 317-0088, confirmation code 10115000, through December 24, 2017.
