iSatori Reports Strong Profitability for the Second Quarter of 2014

Gross Product Sales Increased 47% Year Over Year; Operating Income Increased 488% Over the Previous Year; Recorded Net Income of $336,099 (12% of Net Product Revenue) or $0.02 per Fully Diluted Share

GOLDEN, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- iSatori, Inc. (OTCQB: IFIT), an emerging leader in the development and marketing of scientifically engineered nutritional supplements for healthier lifestyles, today announced second quarter results.

The Company reports that gross product revenues, prior to discounts, returns, and advertising trade promotions, for the second quarter of 2014 increased $1.2 million over the previous year or 47% to $3.7 million. Net revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were $2.9 million, which reflects a 28% increase over 2013 in the same quarter. The increase was due primarily to the accelerated sales of Bio-Gro™ and the introduction of two new products: (i) Amino-Amp™ and (ii) Isa-Test® DA3™. Bio-Gro™ has been described as a category-defining sports nutrition product because it is not just another "me too" product; it is in a category of its own, using a new creation called "bio-active peptides" to enhance physical performance, strength, and muscular development. During the second quarter, the Company introduced five new flavored versions of Bio-Gro™. Amino-Amp™ is designed to increase the recovery, athletic performance, and muscle-building potential for weight-training individuals. Isa-Test® DA3™ is designed to stimulate the body's natural elevation of the muscle-building hormone testosterone.

Gross margin for the second quarter 2014 slightly declined from 59% to 56% as a percentage of net product revenues, due to product and channel mix. Nonetheless, gross profit in dollars increased 22% during the second quarter.

Selling and marketing expense increased in dollar terms and as a percent of net product revenue (from 13% to 17%). The increase was due in part to an increase in digital media advertising. Salaries increased in dollar terms but decreased as a percent of net product revenue (from 23% to 21%). Administrative expenses decreased both in dollar terms and as a percent of net product revenue (from 20% to 10%) due primarily to a decrease in professional fees. Overall, operating expenses increased in dollar terms but decreased as a percent of net product revenue (from 57% to 49%). Operating income improved 488% from $36,397 (2% of net product revenue) to $213,951 (7% of net product revenue).

Financing, interest, and other income (expense) increased from an expense of $97,523 (negative 4% of net product revenue) to income of $185,530 (6% of net product revenue) primarily as a result of a favorable change in the value of derivative instruments in 2014 and the absence of a one-time settlement expense that occurred in 2013. Earnings before taxes increased from a loss of $61,126 (negative 3% of net product revenue) to income of $399,481 (positive 14% of net product revenue). Net income increased from $133,222 (6% of net product revenue) to $336,099 (12% of net product revenue). Basic EPS increased from $0.01 to $0.03 and from $.01 to $.02 for fully diluted share.

Six Months

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, net product revenue increased 37%. Gross margin increased from 57% of net product revenue to 60%. Income (loss) from operations increased from a loss of $44,317 to income of $568,212 (9% of revenue). Earnings before taxes increased from a loss of $314,112 to income of $751,452 (12% of net product revenue). Net income increased from negative $129,898 to $672,337 (11% of net product revenue) and from negative $0.01 to positive $0.05 per basic and fully diluted share.

Cash flow provided by operations was a positive $825,829 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to cash used of $163,475 for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Thus, the company's cash balance increased to $1,717,916 as of June 30, 2014. Accounts receivable decreased from $2,398,178 as of December 31, 2013, to $2,148,148 as of June 30, 2014. Inventory increased from $1,985,764 as of December 31, 2013, to $2,246,804 as of June 30, 2014. The company's current ratio increased from 1.92 as of December 31, 2013, to 2.05 as of June 30, 2014. Debt was virtually unchanged and shareholders' equity increased 26% for the six-month period.

Highlights from the second quarter of 2014 were:

  • Second quarter net product revenue increased by 28% year over year.

  • Operating income increased 488%.

  • Reported 12% net income as a percentage of net revenues.

Commentary

Stephen Adele, founder and chief executive officer of iSatori, commented: "We are well on our way to achieving our goal of profitable growth. The iSatori team is very proud to have produced earnings of $672,337 on net product revenue of $6,096,740 for the first half of 2014. During the second half of 2014, our sales and marketing team will continue to work with our specialty retail partners and others to maximize the market impact of our category-defining product, Bio-Gro™, and continue to fund ongoing research to discover the full market potential for this breakthrough supplement. In addition, the team will work to capitalize on the momentum of our new products, Amino-Amp™ and Isa-Test® DA3™. Meanwhile, our research and development team expects to bring at least two more exciting new products to market this year. It's certainly exciting times at iSatori, and I'm excited about the future."

Industry Developments

In 2013, the nutritional supplement market grew 7.5% to $34.9 billion (according the NBJ Annual SNWL Industry report). Sports nutrition comprised 13% of that total and is the fastest growing sector in nutritional supplements. The biggest sales channel for supplements is natural and specialty retail, e.g., GNC, followed by mass market retail, e.g., Walmart. Supplement manufacturers/marketers like iSatori comprise 72% of the supplement market. The remaining 28% is comprised of multi-level marketers and private labels. The 80/20 rule is definitely in effect with respect to the 72% of the supplement market controlled by manufacturers/marketers. The largest 16% of manufacturers/marketers generate 86% of the revenue while the smallest 84% of industry players generate 14% of the revenue.

A complete report of the Company's (GAAP) financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, are available via its quarterly report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today on Form 10-Q.
