For the nine months ended August 31, 2020, BAB had revenues of $1,672,000 and net income of $75,000, or $0.01 per share, versus revenues of $2,280,000 and net income of $374,000, or $0.05 per share for the same period in 2019. The Coronavirus pandemic which occurred in the second quarter 2020 has affected the revenues and net income, creating lower revenues and reduced net income in 2020 compared to 2019.

Total operating expenses for the quarter ended August 31, 2020, were $521,000, versus $639,000, in 2019. Total operating expenses for the nine months ended August 31, 2020 were $1,582,000 versus $1,891,000 for the nine months ended August 31, 2019.

On May 1, 2020, BAB Systems, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of BAB, Inc. received a Payroll Protection Program loan under the CARES Act in the amount of $228,000. The Company has used the funds for payroll and certain other acceptable expenses and believes is it likely that the loan will be forgiven in full.

While the Coronavirus pandemic has created challenges for restaurants around the country, we are proud of our franchisees as they continue to adapt to changing regulations and government mandates. As states begin to open up and ease restrictions we have seen franchise locations total system-wide sales rebound from down approximately 66.8% in week 20 of our fiscal year to down approximately 9.5% in week 44. We are continuing to evaluate the effects of the Coronavirus Pandemic on our operations.

BAB, Inc. franchises and licenses Big Apple Bagels®, My Favorite Muffin®, SweetDuet® frozen yogurt and Brewster’s® Coffee. The Company’s stock is traded on the OTCQB under the symbol BABB and its website can be visited at www.babcorp.com.
