Zalmi Duchman, Home Bistro CEO, stated, “In addition to our ongoing menu expansion of celebrity chef meals over the past several quarters, we have also undertaken the following initiatives, which we expect to have a net positive effect on gross margin growth moving forward:
- Reduced royalty payments to newly added celebrity chefs
- Reduced product costs
- Established new multi-tier pricing
- Commenced charging a fee for shipping
- Reduced product promotions”
Mr. Duchman further continued, “We’ve significantly reduced our administrative expenses and general reliance on costly outside consultants and service providers. In addition, while we experienced a modest decrease in revenue due to the consolidation of our West Coast operations into our main facility in South Florida, the cost savings benefit of which over the long-term is expected to far outweigh any recoverable short-term revenue loss.”
He added, “As our business has grown over the past several years, we’ve also gained valuable insight into and experience regarding, dynamic changes within the expanding overall meal delivery sector. This experience, combined with our status as a publicly-traded company, should provide us with a competitive advantage within the fragmented “heat-to-eat” segment in which we compete, when considering its consolidation potential. In that regard, we are continuing to work toward attaining a potential Nasdaq up-listing and qualified equity offering that if successful, should provide us with the essential capital needed to achieve the level of growth, both organic and through acquisition, necessary to maximize value and increase liquidity for our shareholders.”
