"Our sales momentum continues and we achieved profitability, not only in the second quarter, but also year-to-date. Sales for the quarter were driven by a 34% increase in sales of Reed's Ginger Brews that grew organically at an accelerated clip without any new marketing programs. Our Kombucha sales slowed while we changed packaging, but still racked up 35% sales growth for the quarter. We estimate that our Kombucha growth rate would have been approximately double this rate had we not experienced these production delays. We are second in market share and continue to believe that there is significant growth opportunity in this beverage category that is estimated to be $500 million in annual retail sales," commented Chris Reed, Founder and CEO of Reed's, Inc.
"Our second quarter sales were driven by a 21% increase in our core brands (Reed's & Virgil's) and a 35% increase in the sales of our Kombucha beverages. Our private label sales were off by $749,000 in the second quarter, accounting for only 5% of our gross sales, although we anticipate that the category will experience decent growth in the back half of the year. Our gross margin increased 100 basis points to 33% versus the first quarter of 2014 and 700 basis points when compared to the prior year when we had a contractual issue with a private label product offering. Year over year we had a 51% increase in gross profit dollars for the quarter," stated Larry Tomsic, Interim CFO at Reed's, Inc.
Chris Reed, CEO and Founder, continued, "We kicked off the third quarter with the launch of our first national TV advertising campaign targeted at foodies who can appreciate the taste and quality of our Reed's Extra Ginger Brew. We believe that in addition to increasing brand awareness it will ultimately drive sales to the doors that carry Reed's products. We continue to focus our efforts on driving sales and improving gross margins to fund our growth. Although our foundation was built in the natural grocery channel, we have seen significant growth coming from the traditional grocery channel where carbonated soft drinks are struggling and consumers are increasingly looking for unique and all natural beverages like our Reed's Ginger Brew and Virgil's craft sodas."
The Company expects revenue growth of 15-20% in fiscal 2014. Core brands (Reed's & Virgil's) are expected to grow 15-20%; Kombucha is expected to grow 40 to 50%; and our other product category, that includes private label, candy and non-core beverage assortments, is expected to be approximately flat. EBITDA is expected to range between $1.5 and $2.0 million for the year and the Company expects to generate a modest net income.
The Company will conduct a conference call @ 4:30PM EDT today, August 12th, to discuss its 2014 second quarter results and outlook for the future. To participate in the call, please dial the following number 5 to 10 minutes prior to the scheduled call time (800) 758-5606. International callers should dial +1 (212) 231-2939.

The Company defines modified EBITDA (a non-GAAP measurement) as net income or (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and non-cash expense for securities. Other companies may calculate modified EBITDA differently. Management believes that the presentation of modified EBITDA provides a measure of performance that approximates cash flow before interest expense, and is meaningful to investors.

The following table sets forth key statistics for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.
Three Months Ended June 30, Pct. ------------------------ 2014 2013 Change ----------- ----------- ------ Gross sales, net of discounts & returns* $12,324,000 $11,125,000 11% Less: Promotional and other allowances** 1,137,000 1,606,000 -29% ----------- ----------- Net sales 11,187,000 9,519,000 18% ----------- ----------- Cost of tangible goods sold 7,037,000 6,630,000 6% As a percentage of: Gross sales 57% 60% Net sales 63% 70% Cost of goods sold - idle capacity 446,000 432,000 3% As a percentage of net sales 4% 5% ----------- ----------- Gross profit $ 3,704,000 $ 2,457,000 51% ----------- ----------- Gross profit margin as a percentage of net sales 33% 26%
* Gross sales is used internally by management as an indicator of and to monitor operating performance, including sales performance of particular products, salesperson performance, product growth or declines and overall Company performance. The use of gross sales allows evaluation of sales performance before the effect of any promotional items, which can mask certain performance issues. We therefore believe that the presentation of gross sales provides a useful measure of our operating performance. Gross sales is not a measure that is recognized under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net sales, which is determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be used alone as an indicator of operating performance in place of net sales. Additionally, gross sales may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, as gross sales has been defined by our internal reporting practices. In addition, gross sales may not be realized in the form of cash receipts as promotional payments and allowances may be deducted from payments received from certain customers.
** Although the expenditures described in this line item are determined in accordance with GAAP and meet GAAP requirements, the disclosure thereof does not conform with GAAP presentation requirements. Additionally, our definition of promotional and other allowances may not be comparable to similar items presented by other companies. Promotional and other allowances primarily include consideration given to the Company's distributors or retail customers including, but not limited to the following: (i) reimbursements given to the Company's distributors for agreed portions of their promotional spend with retailers, including slotting, shelf space allowances and other fees for both new and existing products; (ii) the Company's agreed share of fees given to distributors and/or directly to retailers for in-store marketing and promotional activities; (iii) the Company's agreed share of slotting, shelf space allowances and other fees given directly to retailers; (iv) incentives given to the Company's distributors and/or retailers for achieving or exceeding certain predetermined sales goals; and (v) discounted or free products. The presentation of promotional and other allowances facilitates an evaluation of their impact on the determination of net sales and the spending levels incurred or correlated with such sales. Promotional and other allowances constitute a material portion of our marketing activities. The Company's promotional allowance programs with its numerous distributors and/or retailers are executed through separate agreements in the ordinary course of business. These agreements generally provide for one or more of the arrangements described above and are of varying durations, ranging from one week to one year.
