2019-09-24 18:00 11483

Financial Highlights (Six Months ended 3/31/19 compared to 3/31/18):

  • 10.5% Increase in Revenue to $14.4 Million
  • 21% Increase in Gross Profit to $2.54 Million

LISHUI, China, Sept. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Farmmi, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq: FAMI), an agriculture products supplier in China, today announced its financial results for the six months ended March 31, 2019.

Ms. Yefang Zhang, Chairwoman and CEO of the Company stated, "Our strong revenue growth and expansion in gross margin reflects our consistent execution and business leverage. We are benefiting from steady demand growth for our healthy, high-quality agricultural products, led by demand for mushrooms.  With our solid platform to build upon, we have initiated the next phase of our expansion. In line with our plan, we bolstered our operations team earlier this year and completed development of our robust online e-commerce platform. To further accelerate our growth, we have increased our investment in targeted promotional activities, brand awareness efforts and attracting new customers. Our priority remains profitable growth and higher operating efficiencies, as we further penetrate our core markets and create additional value for shareholders."

Ms. Zhang continued: "We continue to develop relationships with key partners, both major suppliers and family farms, while controlling our operating costs, to achieve higher margins and operating cash flows. We expect the demand for our products will continue to grow in China as consumption of mushroom products has consistently risen since 2011. Additionally, the market is underpenetrated with the overall per capital level of consumption in China still below Japan and the United States. We expect to add to our planned domestic growth by developing our international footprint as we move forward."

Total revenues for the six months ended March 31, 2019 increased by $1.37 million, or 10.52%, to $14.39 million from $13.02 million for the same period of last year. 

Revenue from sales of Shiitake increased by $0.37 million, or 4.64%, to $8.35 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $7.98 million for the same period of last year, mainly due to the increased sales volume of our Shiitake products, from 601 tons for the six months ended March 31, 2018 to 662 tons for the six months ended March 31, 2019, while unit sales price for Shiitake did not change.

Revenue from sales of Mu Er increased by $0.34 million, or 7.04%, to $5.17 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $4.83 million for the same period of last year, mainly due to the increased sales volume of our Mu Er products. Sales volume of Mu Er increased to 419 tons for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from 351 tons for the same period of last year. The volume increase was partially offset by a lower average selling price. Average unit sales price of Mu Er decreased by 5.51%, which changed in line with the price of raw materials. As a result of the increased competition amongst the local suppliers. the Company was able to purchase raw materials from suppliers at lower prices during the six months ended March 31, 2019.

Revenue from sales of other edible fungi and other agricultural products increased by $0.66 million, or 314.29%, to $0.87 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $0.21 million for the same period of last year. The increase was primarily due to the increased online sales of the products, including high-end edible fungi. The sales volume increased to 28 tons for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from 7 tons for the same period of last year. After the completion of software development and payment system upgrades in March 2018, the Company reorganized its operating team to put greater effort into advertising activities in order to enhance brand awareness and attract more customers. As a result, online sales increased significantly in the six months ended March 31, 2019.

Beginning October 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2014-09 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (FASB ASC Topic 606) using the modified retrospective method under which cumulative effects are recognized at the date of the initial application of ASC 606. With the adoption of ASC 606, revenue is recognized by following the five steps: (i) identify the contract(s) with the customer; (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (iii) determine the transaction price; (iv) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations; (v) recognize revenue when (or as) each performance obligation is satisfied. The Company believes that its current revenue recognition policies are generally consistent with the new revenue recognition standards set forth in ASC 606. Based on the Company's assessment, potential adjustments to input measures are not expected to be pervasive to the majority of its contracts. As such, the Company has concluded that the adoption of this new guidance did not result in a material cumulative catch-up adjustment to the opening balance sheet of retained earnings at the effective date or any other material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues increased by $0.93 million, or 8.52%, to $11.85 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $10.92 million for the same period of last year.

Cost of revenues of Shiitake increased by $0.19 million, or 2.84%, to $6.89 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $6.70 million for the same period of last year. Cost of revenues of Mu Er increased by $0.26 million, or 6.44%, to $4.30 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $4.04 million for the same period of last year. Cost of revenues of other edible fungi and agricultural products increased by $0.48 million, or 266.67%, to $0.66 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $0.18 million for the same period of last year. 

Gross Profit

Overall gross profit increased by $0.44 million, or 20.95%, to $2.54 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $2.10 million for the same period of the last fiscal year. Gross profit from sales of Shiitake increased by $0.18 million, or 14.06%, to $1.46 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $1.28 million for the same period of last year. Gross profit from sales of Mu Er increased by $0.08 million, or 10.13%, to $0.87 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $0.79 million for the same period of last year. Gross profit from sales of other edible fungi and agricultural products increased by $0.18 million, or 600.00%, to $0.21 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $0.03 million for the same period of last year. The increased gross profit was led by increased sales for the six months of fiscal year 2019 ended March 31, 2019, as compared to the prior period.

Overall gross margin increased by 1.53 percentage points to 17.65% for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from 16.92% for the same period of last year. The increase in overall gross margin was primarily due to more revenue generated from the Company's online shopping platforms. Sales made through the online shopping platforms have higher gross margin than traditional sales.

Income from Operations

Selling and distribution expenses increased by $0.19 million, or 210.10%, to $0.28 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $0.09 million for the same period of last year, primarily due to the increased advertising and marketing expenses as the Company focused on promotion for the Company's online platforms, as well as the increased shipping expenses along with the increased sales volume during the six months ended March 31, 2019, as compared to the same period of last year.

General and administrative expenses increased by $0.15 million, or 19.94%, to $0.88 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $0.73 million for the same period of last year. The increase was primarily attributable to the increased labor costs, as the Company expanded its team to support the demand growth in its business.

As a result, income from operations increased by $0.11 million or 8.59%, to $1.39 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 from $1.28 million for the same period of last year.

Interest Expense

Interest expense was $1.53 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019, as compared to $0.09 million for the same period of last year. The increase in interest expense was primarily attributable to the amortization of debt issuance costs and interest expense incurred for the senior convertible notes during the six months ended March 31, 2019.

Provision for Income Taxes

For the six months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, our income tax expense was $27,860 and $1,591, respectively. The low income tax expense was primarily due to an income tax incentive the Company received from the tax authority of Lishui City. During the six months ended March 31, 2019, FLS Mushroom and Farmmi Food received a temporary income tax break from the local tax authority of Lishui City, for engaging in agricultural industry. Management expects that the Company will continue to enjoy the tax break going forward.

Net Income (loss)

Net loss was $0.17 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to net income of $1.20 million for the same period of last year. After the deduction of non-controlling interests, net loss attributable to common shareholders for the six months ended March 31, 2019 was $0.17 million, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share. This compares to net income attributable to common shareholders of $1.20 million, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, for the same period of last year.

Other comprehensive income

Other comprehensive income was $0.68 million and $0.70 million for the six months ended March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018, respectively. The decrease was mainly due to the change of the exchange rate of RMB against US$.

Financial Condition

As of March 31, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $5.3 million with a restricted cash balance of $0.5 million, and working capital of $21.9 million.  As of March 31, 2019, the Company's accounts receivable balance was $14.0 million, as compared to $8.6 million in the same period last year. The increase is primarily due to credit sales made to one of the Company's largest customers.  As of July 31, 2019, the Company has collected $6.7 million of the outstanding accounts receivable balance as of March 31, 2019.

2018 Private Placement

On November 1, 2018, the Company completed a $7.5 million private placement with an institutional investor (the "Buyer"). Pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, dated as of November 1, 2018 (the "Securities Purchase Agreement"), the Company issued and sold an aggregate of $7.5 million of senior convertible notes due April 1, 2020 (the "Notes") and warrants (the "Investor Warrants") to purchase an aggregate of 800,000 of our Ordinary Shares. The Notes were initially convertible into 1,198,084 Ordinary Shares at the rate of $6.26 per Ordinary Share, which rate is subject to adjustment as referenced in the form of Notes. The Notes bear interest at 10% per year. The Investor Warrants are exercisable by the holder thereof at any time on or after November 1, 2018 and before November 1, 2022. One year from the date of issuance of the Investor Warrants, the Exercise Price of the Investor Warrants will be lowered to the then-current Market Price (as such term is defined in the Notes) of an Ordinary Share, if such Market Price is less than the initial Exercise Price of $6.53 per Ordinary Share.

On November 9, 2018, the Company issued warrants to purchase 10% of the shares placed under the Notes (initially 119,808) to the placement agent, at an exercise price of $7.183 per share (the "Placement Agent Warrants"). The Investor and Placement Agent Warrants have a term of four years and are subject to adjustment under certain events.

As of March 31, 2018, Ordinary Shares totaling 131,223 were issued by the Company to the Buyer equaling principal and interests amounted to $485,208.
