Year End Results

STATEN ISLAND, New York, Jan. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coffee Holding Co., Inc. (Nasdaq: JVA) (the “Company”) today announced its operating results for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2018:

The Company had income of $2,038,938 before income taxes and non-controlling interest in subsidiary for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2018 compared to income of $976,936 for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2017, resulting in a net change of $1,062,002 for the year ended October 31, 2018. The increase was primarily attributable to the reasons described below.

Net sales totaled $90,655,294 for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2018, an increase of $13,527,699, or 17.5%, from $77,127,595 for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2017. This increase includes approximately $5,512,930 of net sales from the operations of Steep & Brew, which was acquired in April 2018 by Generations Coffee Company, the entity formed as a result of the Company’s joint venture with Caruso’s Coffee, Inc. Therefore, organic sales growth was $8,014,769 or 10.4%. The increase in the Company’s net sales reflects the Company’s continued increased sales of branded and private label coffee and wholesale green beans to both new and existing customers.

Cost of sales for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2018 was $75,040,802, or 82.8% of net sales, as compared to $64,977,632, or 84.3% of net sales, for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2017. Cost of sales consists primarily of the cost of green coffee and packaging materials and realized and unrealized gains or losses on hedging activity. The increase in cost of sales was due to the Company’s increased sales and sales generated by the Steep & Brew acquisition which results were not included in the year ended October 31, 2017.

Gross profit for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2018 was $15,614,492, an increase of $3,464,529 from $12,149,963 for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2017. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales increased to 17.2% for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2018 from 15.8% for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2017. The integration of Steep & Brew accounted for approximately $2,111,000 of the increase. The Company experienced improved margins on the Company’s wholesale and roasted business during the year despite the increased freight and shipping costs.

Total operating expenses increased by $2,286,083 to $13,213,329 for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2018 from $10,927,246 for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2017. Selling and administrative expenses increased $2,303,823, or 22.5%, to $12,532,329 for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2018 from $10,228,506 for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2017. The primary reasons for this increase were the acquisition of Steep & Brew which accounted for $1,800,677 and the increase in the Company’s freight costs as it increased and expanded its product distribution. Officers’ salary decreased by $17,740 or 2.5% to $681,000 for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2018 from $698,740 for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2017.

“Although we faced multiple challenges throughout 2018, we continued to make significant strides towards achieving sustainable long-term growth and profitability. A second consecutive year of abnormally depressed coffee prices, tariffs imposed on the steel industry, which negatively affected our cost structure on finished goods, combined with ever increasing freight costs throughout the year, all negatively impacted our top and bottom line numbers. In spite of these headwinds, we were able to build off our prior year’s successes to grow revenues by 17.5%, as well as increase earnings from $0.08 to $0.19 per share. We continued to grow our three key areas of business, wholesale green coffee sales, private label or “store brand” coffee sales and sales of our own eight proprietary brands roasted under our own unique specifications. These increases enabled us to grow revenues for six of the last seven consecutive quarters,” stated Andrew Gordon, Chief Executive Officer of Coffee Holding.

“Although the performance of our recently acquired businesses continues to be erratic, we have seen some improvement in certain areas of operations. Sonofresco’s performance in the area of green coffee sales continues to improve each year increasing almost 18% as compared to fiscal 2017. Comfort Foods sales continue to fluctuate depending on the levels of promotional activity; but the importance of now having an East Coast roasting facility during a time of escalating freight rates has important strategic value for us both now and in the immediate future. As a result of our East Coast roasting facility, we are now in the position to competitively bid on new business in the Northeast. In addition, by consolidating product in Massachusetts, we receive additional freight savings when shipping to customers in the region as opposed to shipping small orders from the West coast. Steep N Brew, our most recent acquisition, through Generations Coffee Company, continues to show strong revenues growth. We expect sales for Generations/Steep N Brew to reach approximately $18 to $20 million for the upcoming fiscal year, which would represent an approximately 6% to 15% increase vs fiscal 2018, on an annualized basis. Our partners in Generations Coffee Co. have upgraded the Steep N Brew operations since the acquisition, adding additional roasting and packaging capacity which we expect will enable us to aggressively grow future sales in the bag and single serve coffee segments,” continued Mr. Gordon.

“In other developments, we have decided to end our corporate stock buyback program as we believe this initiative was not having the desired effect on enhancing overall shareholder value. Instead, we will be implementing a new dividend policy. We intend to pay a dividend of 30% of our net profits for the fiscal year ending October 31, 2019 to shareholders of record as of October 31, 2019 to reward them for their loyalty and patience as well as to reaffirm our ability to generate free cash and positive results. We expect such dividend to be paid in our second fiscal quarter of 2020.

Lastly, we have had numerous discussions on the CBD front, which has become an extremely prominent topic for many companies in the coffee space. We are in discussions with both potential providers in addition to conversations with both our green and roasted customer base as to the best applications for CBD for both existing and potential new products utilizing CBD in manner applicable with the needs of the end consumer. We will continue to explore this as we believe there is potential for CBD coffee products in the near future,” concluded Mr. Gordon.
