NEW AGE BEVERAGES CORPORATION (NASDAQ: NBEV), the Colorado and Utah-based healthy products company, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019. The Company achieved record sales, with net revenue reaching $66.3 million versus a prior year of $13.4 million, a growth of 397%. 


  • Net revenue reached an all-time high of $66.3 million, up 397% over Q2 2018 and a 14% increase sequentially from Q1 2019.
  • Gross margins increased to 63% compared to 13% in the prior year quarter.
  • Achieved positive Adjusted EBITDA compared to a loss of $2.2 million in Q2 2018 and a net loss of $11.7 million during Q2 2019.
  • Maintained strong Balance Sheet with cash of $83.6 million and positive working capital of $57.8 million

“We are pleased with our second quarter operating results, which again exceeded our guidance in revenue and positive Adjusted EBITDA,” stated Brent Willis, Chief Executive Officer of New Age Beverages. “We finished the quarter strong and believe that we will see good organic growth in the second half of 2019. With the strength of our balance sheet and the improved sales and marketing capabilities that we added with the Brands Within Reach acquisition, we believe we are building excellent momentum for continued improved operating performance in the back half of the year.”

The Company will host a live conference call and webcast today at 8:30 a.m. EST. Conference call details are provided at the end of this press release. 


For the three-month period ended June 30, 2019, gross revenues reached $68.5 million versus $15.2 million in the prior year. Net revenues less discounts, returns and billbacks reached $66.3 million versus $13.4 million in the prior year, an increase of 397%. 

Gross profit in the second quarter reached $41.6 million versus $1.8 million in the prior year. As a percent of net sales, gross margin was up significantly to 63% versus 13% in the prior year, primarily due to product mix and the combination with Morinda, which was completed on December 21, 2018. 

Total operating expenses for the quarter were $44.6 million, down $2.5 million versus the prior quarter, and up versus the prior year due primarily to the increased selling, general and administrative expenses associated with the Morinda merger. Total operating expenses are net of an unrealized gain of $6.7 million from the change in fair value of the Morinda earnout obligation, partially offset by $3.1 million of non-cash expenses and a $1.5 million impairment charge. 

Net loss was $11.7 million or $(0.15) per share versus a loss of $3.4 million or $(0.09) per share in the second quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA was positive, in line with guidance and improved to $14,000 compared to $2.2 million loss in the prior year quarter. 

New Age’s cash balance as of June 30, 2019 totaled $83.6 million and working capital was $57.8 million as compared to cash at December 31, 2018 of $42.5 million and working capital of $40.9 million. Total assets increased to $331.7 million versus $286.9 million at the end of 2018.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The primary purpose of using non-GAAP financial measures is to provide supplemental information that the Company believes may prove useful to investors and to enable investors to evaluate the Company’s results in the same way as management. The Company also presents the non-GAAP financial measures because it believes they assist investors in comparing the Company’s performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis, as well as comparing the Company’s results against the results of other companies, by excluding items that the Company does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance. Specifically, the Company uses these non-GAAP measures as measures of operating performance; to prepare the annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of the Company’s business; to evaluate the effectiveness of the Company’s business strategies; to provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance; to facilitate a comparison of the Company’s results with those of other companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results; and in communications with the Company’s board of directors concerning financial performance. Investors should be aware however, that not all companies define these non-GAAP measures consistently. The Company discloses the following non-GAAP financial measures:

Non-GAAP Gross Revenue. For the calculation of Non-GAAP gross revenue, the Company excludes selling discounts and allowances when evaluating the gross amount of its revenue. Gross revenue is an important metric because this is how the Company believes investors and competitors compare financial results of beverage companies since with additional scale distributors and retailers will have less ability to force discounts and allowances on smaller companies in the market, which will help identify the full value to an investor, competitor or potential acquirer.

EBITDA is net loss adjusted to exclude interest expense, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization expense.

Adjusted EBITDA. For the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, the Company also excludes the following item for the periods presented:

Stock-Based Compensation Expense: The Company’s compensation strategy includes the use of stock-based compensation to attract and retain employees, directors and consultants. This strategy is principally aimed at aligning the employee interests with those of the Company’s stockholders and to achieve long-term employee retention, rather than to motivate or reward operational performance for any particular period. As a result, stock-based compensation expense varies for reasons that are generally unrelated to operational decisions and performance in any particular period.

The tables below provide a reconciliation from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to each non-GAAP financial measure presented. The calculation of Non-GAAP gross revenue is presented below for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 (in thousands):
