OMAHA, Neb., Aug. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FitLife Brands, Inc. (“FitLife” or the “Company”) (OTC Pink: FTLF), an international provider of innovative and proprietary nutritional supplements for health-conscious consumers marketed under the brand names NDS Nutrition™, PMD®, SirenLabs®, CoreActive®, Metis Nutrition™, iSatori™, Energize, and BioGenetic Laboratories, today announced results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.
Highlights for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 include:
- Total revenue increased 5.5% to $4.6 million.
- Direct-to-consumer online sales increased to 13.5% of total revenue, compared to 4.5% in the same quarter last year, with Energize and select iSatori products continuing to achieve the strongest unit movement.
- Gross profit improved 2.7% to $1.9 million.
- Operating expense declined 10.5% to $1.4 million.
- Net income available to common shareholders improved to $0.5 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to $0.2 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, in the same quarter last year.
- As a result of the reverse/forward split that was executed during the quarter, the Company repurchased approximately 8.9% of its outstanding shares.
- For the first time in several years, the Company achieved a net cash position, with cash of $0.9 million exceeding total debt of $0.7 million at quarter end.
For the first quarter ended June 30, 2019, total revenue was $4.6 million versus $4.4 million in the same quarter last year, an increase of 5.5%. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in our online direct-to-consumer sales with our brands such as Energize, offset partially by a decline in our wholesale revenue. During the second quarter of 2019, online sales accounted for 13.5% of the Company’s revenue, compared to 4.5% during the same quarter last year.
Gross profit improved to $1.9 million, an increase of 2.7% from the second quarter of 2018. Gross margin declined from 41.2% to 40.1% over the same time period, driven primarily by greater promotional activity during the quarter in our iSatori wholesale business.
Total operating expense for the second quarter of 2019 declined 10.5% to $1.4 million, primarily due to cost reduction initiatives that were implemented throughout 2018. Operating income for the second quarter increased 100% to $0.4 million.
Net income available to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2019 was $0.5 million, an increase of 211% compared to the same period last year. The Company delivered basic earnings per share of $0.51—or $0.43 per diluted share—in the quarter, compared to $0.16 per share in the same quarter last year. Earnings during the quarter benefitted from a non-recurring legal settlement amounting to $0.14 million.
For the six-month period ended June 30, 2019, total revenue was $10.5 million, a 16.7% increase over the prior year. Operating income was $1.6 million and net income available to common shareholders was $1.7 million compared to $0.5 million and $0.4 million, respectively, during the prior year period.
The Company’s balance sheet has continued to improve consistent with operations. As of June 30, 2019, the Company’s cash balance of $0.9 million exceeded its total outstanding debt of $0.7 million.
Dayton Judd, the Company’s Chairman and CEO, commented “I am pleased that the Company’s operations continue to improve. Our improved cost structure and financial flexibility is giving us the freedom to invest in marketing and explore other opportunities to further strengthen and grow our Company.”
