BAB, Inc. Reports Results for 2nd Quarter FY 2021
DEERFIELD, Ill., July 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BAB, Inc. (OTCQB: BABB), announced its financial results for the second quarter ended May 31, 2021.
For the quarter ended May 31, 2021, BAB had revenues of $749,000 and net income of $87,000, or $0.01 per share earnings, versus revenues of $352,000 and a net loss of $72,000, or a $0.01 per share loss, for the same quarter last year. Royalty revenue, license fees and other revenue all increased for the second quarter 2021, primarily because of state restrictions being lifted relating to COVID-19 for restaurants and more on-line, curb-side and delivery options instituted by franchisees in late 2020 and 2021 compared to initial months of the COVID-19 pandemic that occurred in the second quarter 2020. Marketing fund revenue increased not only because of increased sales in 2021, but also because in April and May of 2020 marketing fees were waived to assist franchise locations during the initial COVID-19 impact.
For the six months ended May 31, 2021, revenues were $1,472,000 and net income was $420,000, or $0.06 per share, versus revenues of $1,048,000 and a net loss of $28,000, or $0.00 (zero) per share for the same period in 2020. Net income in 2021 includes $228,155 of non-taxable loan forgiveness from the Payroll Protection Program loan enacted under the CARES Act in 2020. The loan was forgiven in the first quarter of 2021.
Total operating expenses for the quarter ended May 31, 2021, were $627,000, versus $423,000, in 2020. The change in operating expenses for the quarter was primarily due to the increase in marketing fund expenses of $203,000 because of the reduced spending in 2020. Total operating expenses for the six months ended May 31, 2021 were $1,213,000 versus $1,061,000 for the six months ended May 31, 2020 with marketing expenses increasing $177,000 because of the reduced spending related to COVID-19 in the second quarter of 2020.
