Schmitt Announces First Quarter Fiscal 2021 Operating Results

PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Schmitt Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMIT) (the "Company" or "Schmitt") today announced its operating results for the fiscal quarter ended August 31, 2020. The operating results for the first quarter include the financial results from Schmitt's July 9, 2020 acquisition of Ample Hills Creamery ("Ample Hills").

Highlights of the three months ended August 31, 2020

  • Consolidated revenues increased $412,707, or 37.7%, to $1,507,485 for the three months ended August 31, 2020, as compared to $1,094,778 for the three months ended August 31, 2019.
  • The Company's newly formed ice cream segment generated revenues of $501,420 from the date of the Company's acquisition of Ample Hills on July 9, 2020 through August 31, 2020.
  • Revenue for the Company's measurement segment decreased $88,713, or 8.1%, for the three months ended August 31, 2020, as compared to the three months ended August 31, 2019, primarily due to a $79,545, or 17.8%, decline in sales of the Company's Acuity products. Recurring revenue from the Company's Xact products monitoring services continued to grow, increasing $20,596, or 5.6%, for the three months ended August 31, 2020 as compared to the three months ended August 31, 2019.
  • Gross margin decreased to 40.3% for the three months ended August 31, 2020 as a result of the start-up of the Ample Hill's factory and the decline in Acuity sales.
  • Operating expenses increased $1,522,098 to $2,229,336 for the three months ended August 31, 2020, as compared to $707,238 for the three months ended August 31, 2019. The increase was primarily due to the inclusion of the Ample Hills business along with increased stock compensation, professional fees, and investments in information technology.
  • Net income from continuing operations was $150,659, or $0.04 per share, for the three months ended August 31, 2020, as compared to a net loss of $(206,154), or ($0.05) per share, for the three months ended August 31, 2019. Excluding the $1,271,615 bargain purchase gain realized as a result of the acquisition of Ample Hills, stock-based compensation, transaction fees and re-organization expenses, and income from discontinued product lines, non-GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations for the three months ended August 31, 2020 was $(0.23).
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased $870,953, to $(1,010,440), for the three months ended August 31, 2020, as compared to $(139,487) for the three months ended August 31, 2019.

The Company finished the quarter ended August 31, 2020 with $9,471,275 in cash, as compared to $10,566,531 for the year ended May 31, 2020.

Michael Zapata, Schmitt's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Ample Hills adds another strong brand with great potential to the Schmitt family. In a time of pressure and uncertainty, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to help this beloved ice cream company out of bankruptcy, hire back over 100 employees, and restart its iconic Red Hook ice cream factory. In less than eight weeks, the team has done an incredible job opening up our nine New York and New Jersey locations, opening our first California location, restocking our channels and launching our e-commerce site. We look forward to sharing our long-term vision for Ample Hills at our annual meeting in December and we encourage all our shareholders to visit our scoop shops and enjoy our incredible flavors."

Mr. Zapata continued, "The first quarter of fiscal year 2021 has been a period of investment and execution. Our Ample Hills team has been exclusively focused on re-opening our stores and factory and re-stablishing the business, while our measurement products segment team has shifted focus from building a foundation to revenue generation and cost reduction. Our strong balance sheet enables us to continue investing in our businesses while continuing to weather the COVID-19 environment."

Ample Hills Acquisition

On July 9, 2020, Schmitt acquired the assets of Ample Hills Creamery, Inc. and its subsidiaries, a beloved Brooklyn, NY-based ice cream manufacturer and retailer, for $1.7 million.

"Our investment plan for Ample Hills forecasted significant capital investments to fund the operating losses associated with re-opening the factory and carrying the business through a period of low utilization and same-store sales. Ample Hills generated an operating loss of $962,754 for the quarter ended August 31, 2020, which includes allocated corporate overhead and was in-line with our internal investment plan.

Board of Directors

On October 27, 2020, Schmitt announced the appointment of Lillian Tung as the fifth member of the Company's Board of Directors. Ms. Tung is an "independent director" according to the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission and The NASDAQ Stock Market.

Lillian Tung is the Chief Marketing Officer and co-founder of Fur, the high growth beauty brand pioneering body hair care. Ms. Tung has more than a decade of experience in marketing and entrepreneurship and has a breadth of experience across marketing channels with a strong emphasis on digital acquisition, brand development, and consumer engagement. As a business founder she blends the strategic mindset required to achieve aggressive growth targets while maintaining long-term financial sustainability.

"From a corporate governance standpoint, I am pleased to have recently announced the addition of Lillian Tung as our fifth board member.

On behalf of the board, please welcome Lillian Tung to the Schmitt family. We look forward to sharing more detail on our companies at our upcoming Schmitt annual meeting."
