TOFUTTI Announces 2007 Results

CRANFORD, N.J., April 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. (Amex: TOF) issued its results for the fifty-two week period ended December 29, 2007 today.

Net sales for the fifty-two weeks ended December 29, 2007 (fiscal 2007) were $19,150,000, a decrease of $315,000, or 2%, from net sales for the fifty-two weeks ended December 30, 2006 (fiscal 2006).

The company's efforts to grow its sales in 2007 were negatively impacted by three factors. Tofutti lost a significant amount of business in the second and third quarters of 2007 when the ice cream plant that formerly produced its frozen dessert products shut down unexpectedly at the end of April 2007. The shut down caused inventory shortages of the company's frozen dessert novelties until a new production source was obtained. The company fully restocked its inventory by the middle of the fourth quarter, and the company experienced a growth in fourth quarter revenues compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006. Also impacting sales was the discontinued purchase of one item that generated $400,000 in sales in 2006 by a major customer. Although the sales loss was sizeable, the impact to profitability was not significant since it was not a highly profitable item. Additionally, in view of the new frozen dessert production arrangements, the company discontinued a number of slower moving items whose continued production involved maintaining excess inventory in relationship to the sales level that these items generated.

The company's gross profit in fiscal 2007 decreased by $58,000, or 1%, due primarily to the decrease in sales while its gross profit percentage remained constant at 29% for fiscal 2007 and fiscal 2006. The gross profit percentage continues to be adversely affected by increased freight expenses due to the high continued high cost of petroleum, and the company expects ingredient costs for certain key items and packaging costs to continue at their current high levels. The company initiated a series of price increases that will become effective in the first and second quarters of 2008, which it believes will help it maintain, or improve, its current gross profit percentage.

For fiscal 2007, the company reported a decrease in income before income taxes of $330,000 to $799,000 from $1,129,000 in fiscal 2006. Net income for fiscal 2007 decreased to $465,000 ($0.08 per share) compared to $617,000 ($0.11 per share) for fiscal 2006.

"Our efforts to grow our sales in fiscal 2007 were frustrated by the closure of our key producer of our frozen dessert products. As a result of a lot of effort, we were able to identify a new producer and to move our production to the new site relatively quickly. As a result of these efforts, we were able to increase sales in the fourth quarter and are now at full production. We are once again concentrating on increasing the sales of our flagship products. We believe that our business plan of concentrating on our core business of non-dairy frozen desserts and soy-cheese products will drive the growth in our sales and operating income," said David Mintz, the Company's Chairman and CEO. "We are optimistic that our business plan will result in improved sales and operating income in fiscal 2008."

TOFUTTI BRANDS INC. is principally involved in the development, production and marketing of TOFUTTI brand soy-based, dairy-free frozen desserts, soy-based dairy free cheese products and other soy-based, dairy-free food products. TOFUTTI products are sold in grocery stores, supermarkets, health and convenience stores throughout the United States and in approximately twenty-five other countries.

Actual results may vary significantly based upon a number of factors including, but not limited to business conditions both domestic and international, competition, changes in product mix or distribution channels, resource constraints encountered in promoting and developing new products and other risk factors detailed in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its annual report on Form 10-KSB.
