Dr. Sasson Moulavi, the Founder of Doctors Scientific Organica and Chief Medical Officer for Smart for Life, stated, “We are seeing increased demand for Milk Dust and we believe it has been driven in part by the greater awareness of breastfeeding during the baby formula shortage.  We are proud to have partnered with Katie during the development of her formula.  As a Doctor I always use the highest quality ingredients possible – each of which is hand-picked, and the lactation-blend is a unique combination of herbs, spices and nutrients.”

Darren Minton, Chief Executive Officer of Smart for Life, concluded, “Milk Dust is a fantastic product that has seen more awareness by moms through online channels and social media.  Our FDA-certified manufacturing facility in Florida has the capacity to ramp up production of the Milk Dust line of products and we are excited to continue our partnership with the Milk Dust team as they continue to help pave the way in nutrition for breastfeeding mothers.”

Smart for Life on Track to Close Pending Acquisition of Ceautamed Worldwide

Smart for Life on Track to Close Pending Acquisition of Ceautamed Worldwide 1920 1080 Smart for Life, Inc.

Acquisition Expected to Close in June and Result in Significant Operating Efficiencies

Company Provides Response to Nasdaq Notice

Miami, FL – June 8, 2022 – Smart for Life, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMFL) (“Smart for Life” or the “Company”), a global leader in the Health & Wellness sector marketing and manufacturing nutritional supplements and foods worldwide, today reported that due diligence is complete and the previously announcedpending acquisition of Ceautamed Worldwide, LLC is on track for closing this month.  In connection with the transaction, Smart for Life is making a $1 million payment toward the acquisition this week, with an anticipated closing by June 30, 2022, but no later than July 29, 2022.

“I am pleased to report that we are on track to complete the transformative acquisition of Ceautamed now that we have completed due diligence as well as finalization of key documentation,” noted A.J. Cervantes, Jr., Executive Chairman for Smart for Life. “Ceautamed’s Chairman, Stuart Benson, and CEO, Ryan Benson, have been actively collaborating with our team to help ensure a seamless transition and optimize the consolidation of Ceautamed’s operations with our own. In particular, we look forward to transitioning Ceautamed’s manufacturing to our wholly owned FDA-certified manufacturing facility in Miami.  Historically, Ceautamed has relied on third-party manufacturers and the consolidation of our operations should result in meaningful operating efficiencies and cost savings.”

“A.J. and his team have been highly proactive in the identification of joint opportunities that we plan to implement on closing which have the potential to significantly enhance sales by leveraging Smart for Life’s established direct-to-consumer and wholesale distribution channels including our unique medical channel,” said Stuart Benson. “In addition, Alan Bergman, Smart for Life’s Chief Financial Officer, has spent a significant amount of time at our facility identifying meaningful consolidation benefits.”

Darren Minton, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The Ceautamed acquisition is another validation of our Buy-and-Build strategy supporting our goal of creating a dominant global force in the Health & Wellness sector as we move toward our previously stated mission of $100 million in annualized revenues within the next 12 months. We could not be more excited to extend our offering to include Ceautamed’s broad product line which includes their highly regarded Greens First brand and variety of well-designed nutritional products such as antioxidant-rich supplements, plant-based protein, alkalizing nutrients and products designed for weight management.”

Response to Nasdaq Notice
Smart for Life also reported that on June 2, 2022, it received a notification from the Nasdaq Stock Market indicating that the Company will have a 180-day grace period, until November 29, 2022, to regain compliance with Nasdaq’s $1.00 minimum bid requirement. Compliance will be achieved automatically and without further action when the closing bid price of the Company’s stock is at or above $1.00 for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days at any time during the 180-day compliance period, in which case Nasdaq will notify the Company of its compliance and the matter will be closed. In accordance with Nasdaq Marketplace rules, following the initial grace period, the Company believes it would be eligible for an additional 180-day grace period, assuming it meets the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards for The Nasdaq Capital Market with the exception of the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. The Nasdaq letter does not impact Smart for Life’s current listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market.

“We are an emerging growth, early-stage public company that came public in the midst of public markets turmoil, high inflation, bear markets, the Russian-Ukrainian war and the material diminution of market valuations for large and small public companies across the board as a result of abhorrent market conditions. We believe it is only a matter of time before the market recognizes the opportunity that Smart for Life represents,” stated Mr. Cervantes.

Mr. Minton added, “Despite adverse market conditions, demand for nutraceutical products continues to grow and we are executing on our business model, including accretive acquisitions of companies with positive cash flow coupled with organic growth. This extension provides us with another six months, potentially twelve months, to further our business, complete acquisitions and achieve significant organizational milestones, which we believe will drive significant value for our shareholders. Following our acquisition of Ceautamed, we plan to initiate a comprehensive investor and public relations program to drive awareness for Smart for Life in advance of a number of meaningful upcoming catalysts.”

Smart for Life Announces Q1 2022 Financial Results

Smart for Life Announces Q1 2022 Financial Results 1920 1080 Smart for Life, Inc.

Company Achieves 679% Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth as Part of Successful Acquisition Strategy

Gross Profit Margin Increases to 34.1% Versus 3.7% for the Same Period Last Year

Miami, FL – May 16, 2022 – Globe Newswire – Smart for Life, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMFL) (“Smart for Life” or the “Company”), a global leading developer, marketer, and manufacturer of nutritional and related products, today provided a business update and reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

“I am pleased to report we achieved significant growth in revenue as a result of both organic growth and the successful implementation of our acquisition strategy, to $4.5 million this quarter,” stated Darren Minton, Chief Executive Officer of Smart for Life. “By acquiring three companies, including Doctors Scientific Organica (DSO), Nexus Offers (Nexus) and GSP Nutrition (GSP) since the same period last year, we were able to significantly expand our product lines, production capabilities, distribution, and marketing capabilities.”

In the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, Smart for Life generated 679% year-over-year growth in revenue to $4.5 million.  In addition, gross profit increased more than seventy-fold to $1.5 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, as compared to just $21 thousand for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021. Similarly, the Company’s gross margin increased to 34.1% from 3.7% for the same quarter last year.  The increase in the gross profit and gross margin reflects both the improved product mix, as well as lower cost of materials due to increased purchasing power.

“It is important to note that our operating expenses included one-time, non-cash interest expense of $11.2 million related to equity issued at the time of the IPO, as well as other non-cash expenses of $1.2 million,” remarked Mr. Minton. “We also incurred significant costs of $0.7 million this quarter related to the IPO and public company costs we did not have last year. As a result, we believe future quarters will better reflect the true operating synergies of our business model. We believe we will start to see improvement in future quarters as we consolidate operations, eliminate duplicate costs and grow our various operating units. Overall, we believe we have built a highly scalable business model and expect to benefit from improved operating efficiency as we leverage our fixed costs, which should result in significant profitability as we continue to grow revenues.”

“Through accretive acquisitions, our goal is to achieve $100 million in revenues within the next 24 months,” commented A.J. Cervantes, Jr., Smart for Life’s Executive Chairman. “Towards that end, we announced a definitive agreement to acquire Ceautamed Worldwide, a premier vitamin and supplement company that markets and distributes a wide variety of nutritional products, including antioxidant rich supplements, plant-based protein, alkalizing nutrients and products designed for weight management. Their Greens First brand is widely acknowledged as one of the best true greens powders on the market. Ceautamed fits nicely within our growing brand portfolio, and our strategy is to accelerate Ceautamed’s growth by leveraging our distribution relationships and digital marketing platform, in addition to migrating their manufacturing to our wholly owned, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, which will result in immediate cost savings.”

Mr. Minton continued, “We are also advancing plans related to GSP Nutrition’s Sports Illustrated Nutrition™ brand for certain dietary and nutritional supplements.  Our product line already includes a growing roster of high quality products, such as whey protein powder, joint health, pre- and post-workout blends, omega-3 supplements, and more.  We believe the tremendous brand recognition associated with Sports Illustrated will enable us to rapidly expand into new retail and online marketing channels.  Towards this end, we look forward to providing further updates as developments unfold.”

“During the quarter, we announced that we expanded our sales channels by launching the DSO brand on Amazon Singapore. Smart for Life was selected by Amazon to introduce several of its key SKUs into Amazon’s storefront in Singapore. This launch represents a significant new market for Smart for Life and enhances our existing international sales in Canada, Mexico and overseas. We have made tremendous progress in the first quarter by growing our business through acquisitions and are well positioned to execute on a number of key milestones that we believe will drive significant value for shareholders,” concluded Mr. Minton.

Financial Results
Revenues increased to $4.5 million in Q1 2022 compared to $0.6 million for Q1 2021, an increase of $3.9 million or 679%. The increase was primarily due to the acquisitions of DSO, Nexus and GSP that were completed in 2021. Gross profit increased to $1.5 million in Q1 2022 compared to $0.02 million same period last year, an increase of $1.5 million due to the acquisitions completed in 2021. Net loss attributable to common shareholders was $16.7 million in Q1 2022 compared to $0.8 million in Q1 2021 primarily due to increased general and administrative expenses of $4.4 million and total other expense of $13.3 million.

The Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of ($2.8) million in Q1 2022, as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of ($0.6 million) for Q1 2021. The Company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before other expense and day 1 loss and changes in fair value of derivative liability.  Both EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”), and should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, earnings as an indicator of operating performance or cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. The Company believes the presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is relevant and useful by enhancing the readers’ ability to understand the Company’s operating performance. The Company’s management utilizes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as means to measure performance. The Company’s measurements of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similar titled measures reported by other companies. The table below reconciles EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, both non-GAAP measures, to GAAP numbers for net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021

Smart for Life Announces FY 2021 Financial Results

Smart for Life Announces FY 2021 Financial Results 1920 1080 Smart for Life, Inc.

Smart for Life Announces FY 2021 Financial Results

Company Achieves 360% Increase in Revenue in 2021 through Implementation of Successful Acquisition Strategy

Completed Three Material Acquisitions in Last Six Months of the Year

Currently Operating at a $20 Million Revenue Run Rate

Miami, FL – April 1, 2022 – Globe Newswire – Smart for Life, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMFL) (“Smart for Life” or the “Company”), a global leading developer, marketer, and manufacturer of nutritional and related products, today announced financial results and provided a business update for the year ended December 31, 2021.

“2021 was a transformational year for the Company as revenue increased more than four-fold mainly as the result of acquisitions that closed in 2021, in addition to significantly expanding our product lines, production capabilities, distribution and marketing capabilities,” stated A.J. Cervantes, Jr., Smart for Life’s Executive Chairman. “Most notably, we have now completed four major acquisitions since our formation, which not only validates our ability to acquire accretive businesses at attractive multiples, but also our ability to successfully integrate these companies within our organization.”

“It is notable that three of our acquisitions closed toward the end of 2021. Consequently, our above results only include partial year results for some of our subsidiaries,” commented Mr. Cervantes. “For example, the acquisitions of Nexus and GSP Nutrition both closed after November 1, 2021, and thus only include a partial quarter of operations in our consolidated results. Taking this into account, we are now currently at a $20 million revenue run rate. We remain laser focused on our goal of achieving $100 million in revenues within the next 24 months. In addition, it is our view that the net loss we have generated as an emerging growth company does not fully reflect the benefit of our recent acquisitions, and we believe that we will begin to see significant improvement in future quarters as we consolidate operations, eliminate duplicate costs and grow our various operating units.”

As a company in the health and wellness sector, Smart for Life is benefiting from the overall nutraceutical industry, which is projected to grow from approximately $400 billion in 2020 to roughly $720 billion by 2027 according to Grand View Research, representing a highly fragmented market that is ripe for consolidation. Following Smart for Life’s recent IPO, the Company’s management team is executing on its buy-and-build acquisition strategy, while minimizing dilution by acquiring companies through a combination of cash, stock and seller’s notes. Through this approach, Smart for Life believes its acquired companies remain highly incentivized, while ensuring their interests are aligned with shareholders.

Smart for Life’s first major acquisition was Bonne Santé Natural Manufacturing (BSNM), completed in March of 2018, a nutraceutical contract manufacturer. This acquisition includes a state-of-the-art, FDA-certified facility, which provides in-house manufacturing capabilities to scale the business more rapidly. BSNM specializes in a wide variety of products, from the private labeling of vitamins, dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, sport nutrition and broad-spectrum nutritional supplements, and sells them throughout the United States and around the world, including South America, Central America and Europe.

Smart for Life’s next acquisition was Doctors Scientific Organica (DSO), completed in July of 2021. DSO sells and owns the Smart for Life brand of natural health and wellness meal replacement products. The Company plans to leverage DSO’s established retail distribution channels across our other product lines, which includes big box retailers such as Costco, Walmart, BJs Sam’s Club and others. This acquisition also further enhances the Company’s in-house manufacturing capacity, while providing predictable, high margin revenue from contract manufacturing for third-party brands. Smart for Life’s third acquisition of Nexus Offers, Inc., completed in November 2021, provides a first-class digital marketing platform to accelerate the Company’s growth. This network consists of hundreds of digital marketers, which the Company can leverage along with Nexus’ technology and marketing expertise, to drive awareness and revenues across all of the Company’s product lines. Rounding out Smart for Life’s acquisitions in 2021, the Company acquired GSP Nutrition in December, which has the exclusive license to the Sports Illustrated Nutrition™ brand (excluding the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit brand for which it has a right of first offer under the license) for certain dietary and nutritional supplements, in each case to be sold through certain approved accounts in the United States and Canada. GSP’s growing product line consists of whey protein powder, joint health, pre- and post-workout blends, omega-3 supplements, and other targeted formulations for athletes and health-conscious consumers alike.

“As an illustration of our constant growth through M&A, earlier this month we announced a definitive agreement to acquire yet another company, Ceautamed Worldwide, owner of the Greens First line of nutritional products, including antioxidant rich supplements, plant-based protein, alkalizing nutrients and products designed for weight management,” continued Mr. Cervantes. “Our strategy is to migrate their manufacturing to our wholly owned, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, which will result in immediate cost savings. We plan to leverage our relationships with big box retailers, our global distribution channels, as well as our digital marketing platform to further accelerate Ceautamed’s growth.”

Mr. Cervantes concluded, “Overall, we are executing on a carefully orchestrated strategy and each of the pieces is falling into place. Moreover, our balance sheet is stronger than ever, as we raised gross proceeds of $14.4 million and converted over $5.4 million of debt to equity in connection with the IPO, both of which have significantly enhanced our balance sheet. We are building our business for the long-term and are more confident than ever in our strategic vision. We are 100% committed to maximizing value for shareholders and look forward to announcing a number of important milestones in the weeks and months ahead.”

Financial Results
Revenues increased to $9.02 million in FY 2021, including revenues from acquisitions that were completed during 2021, compared to $1.96 million in FY 2020. Gross profit increased to $2.90 million in FY 2021, including gross profit from acquisitions completed in 2021, compared to $0.13 million in FY 2020. Net loss was $7.77 million in FY 2021, taking into account acquisitions that were completed in 2021, compared to $3.17 million in FY 2020.
