The increase in the gross profit and gross profit percentage in the 2016 period was due primarily to the reduction in sales allowance expense. The Company had net income of $32,000, or $0.01 per share (basic and diluted), for the thirteen weeks ended October 1, 2016, compared to a net loss of $126,000, or ($0.02) per share (basic and diluted), for the fourteen weeks ended October 3, 2015.

The Company's gross profit and gross profit percentage for the thirty-nine week period ended October 1, 2016 were $3,531,000 and 32%, respectively, compared to $2,697,000 and 26%, respectively, for the period ended October 3, 2015.  The increase in the Company's gross profit and gross profit percentage was due primarily to the increase in sales and the decrease in the Company's promotional allowance programs in the thirty-nine weeks ended October 1, 2016. The Company's net income for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 1, 2016 was $356,000, or $0.07 per share (basic and diluted), compared to a net loss of $526,000, or ($0.10) per share (basic and diluted), for the forty weeks ended October 3, 2015.

As of October 1, 2016, the Company had approximately $197,000 in cash and cash equivalents and its working capital was approximately $2.9 million, compared with approximately $55,000 in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $2.0 million at January 2, 2016.     

Mr. David Mintz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company stated, "We were successful in continuing to achieve improved operating margins in the third quarter of 2016, as our  gross profit and gross profit percentage increased to $1,108,000 and 31%, respectively, compared to $875,000 and 24%, respectively, for the period ended October 3, 2015.  During the shorter 2016 fiscal period sales of soy-cheese products increased to $2,423,000 from $2,289,000 in the 2015 period and sales of our frozen dessert product line decreased to $1,131,000 from $1,238,000 in 2015, which reflects an immaterial decline when computed on a weekly sales basis. We are continuing to work diligently to achieve positive operating results for the remainder of 2016," concluded Mr. Mintz.
