iSatori Reports Second Quarter and First Six Months 2015 Financial Results

GOLDEN, CO--(Marketwired - August 13, 2015) - iSatori, Inc. (OTCQB: IFIT), an emerging leader in the development and marketing of scientifically engineered nutritional supplements for healthier lifestyles, under the iSatori (www.isatori.com), BioGenetic Laboratories (www.BioGeneticLabs.com), and Energize (www.TryEnergize.com) brands, today announced its second quarter and first six months 2015 results. A complete report of the Company's (GAAP) financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, will be available today on its quarterly report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 10-Q.

Total revenues (after returns, discount, and promotional trade allowances) for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, were $2.489 million compared with revenues of $2.918 million in the second quarter 2014, a decrease of 14.7%. The reduction in revenues is primarily a result of the unanticipated decline in revenues of a product mix shift from the sales of the weight loss dietary supplement segment in iSatori's business, beginning in the third quarter 2014, which was partially offset by sales of new products and product lines in the sports nutrition segments of its business. Additionally, returns and promotions for the weight loss segment of the Company's business in the second quarter increased in order to help reduce excess inventory levels of these products. As well, the Company incurred legal expenditures in the second quarter related to the merger with FitLife Brands ("FTLF"). As a result, net losses for the second quarter was ($522,712) or $(.04) per share compared with net income of $336,099 or $.02 per share in the previous year.

Total revenues (after returns, discount, and promotional trade allowances) for the first half 2015 were $5.918 million compared with revenues of $6.180 million in the first six months of 2015 resulting in a net loss of ($496,323) or a loss of ($ .04 ) per share compared with net income of $672,337 or $.05 in the prior year period.

"The past 12 months have been transformative for our business," said Stephen Adelé, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of iSatori. "The shift in our product mix sales were unexpected, but thankfully our team worked hard to offset more than $2.6-million in non-reoccurring revenues from the weight loss products decline and made up over $2.2-million in our sports nutrition product sales, thus leaving a deficit of $400-thousand in revenues for the first half of this year versus the prior year. And although gross margins are lower than we wished, our management team has taken significant action to help restore our gross margins over the next two quarters, back to levels that are more acceptable for operating profitably again. In the first six months of 2015, we made solid progress in several areas of our business operations to regain profitability. First, we have been very pleased with the acceptance of our new products in the retail marketplace and the results of our efforts to increase product distribution to new and expanded channels. Our Energize product, for instance, is up 107.9% (or plus $738-thousand) in revenues over the same period in the prior year. We have made good progress in meeting demand for new Bio-Gro™ products, resulting in the reduction of most of our backlog in orders. Our iSatori business is up 53% (or plus $1.5-million) over the same period in the prior year. We also substantially reduced our outstanding credit line balance with Colorado Business Bank and have paid a considerable amount of prepaid expenses. This has resulted in less available working capital on hand. Despite these constraints, iSatori continues to make progress in the advancement of its sports nutrition product lines and will continue to pursue its strategic goals surrounding its growth brands."

Company Highlights for the first six months of 2015 include:

Maximize Bio-Gro™ Bio-Active Peptides IP.

iSatori is committed to maximizing its intellectual property including the bio-active peptides found only in Bio-Gro™. The company presented its newest clinical study work on Bio-Gro™ at the most recent ISSN and NSCA scientific and sports national conferences in June and July 2015. Results of the study were positive and supported performance and safety. iSatori plans to continue to invest in its intellectual property.

New Product Development.

Since December 31, 2014, iSatori launched two new products to complement its growing Bio-Gro™ product line. Pre-Gro™, a pre-workout powder designed to deliver a high energy, muscle-building workout experience, fortified with patent-pending, clinically tested Bio-Gro™ Bio-Active Peptides and HydroMax® patented, stabilized glycerol designed to provide a noticeable muscle pump effect and trigger new muscular growth. iSatori also launched a new flavor of Hyper-Gro®, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and expects to introduce additional flavors later in 2015.

New Distribution Customers.

In April, iSatori was notified by GNC that GNC planned to expand its stocking of iSatori Bio-Gro™, Hyper-Gro®, and Pre-Gro™ from 1,100 corporate stores up to approximately 3,000 corporate stores. The shipments for those orders were fulfilled in May and July respectively.

In the second quarter, iSatori placed its Energize 28-count tablet nationally at CVS Health drugstores and shipped initial purchase orders from Rite-Aid drugstores for its Energize product to increase distribution in Rite-Aid drugstores, from partial to full national distribution. This will increase iSatori's retail footprint by adding more than 11,000+ retail stores to its domestic distribution -- increasing the Company's ACV (all commodity volume, a measure of maximum retail distribution volume) from 18.6% to 34.1%, including such current retail distribution as Walmart, Walgreens, Super Value, Meijer, and other food, drug, and mass retailers.

Celebrity-Athlete Full Feature Movie.

In the first quarter of 2015, iSatori signed a multi-year endorsement agreement with CT Fletcher. Deemed one of the most influential and motivated fitness trainers of our time, CT Fletcher will be the center of a new feature film documentary, titled CT Fletcher: My Magnificent Obsession (Generation Iron//Film by Vlad Yudin, 2015). The movie is expected to premiere September 17, 2015, at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Management at iSatori is excited about the new movie and with future product development opportunities relating to the agreement with CT Fletcher.
