Notes to Financial Statements

March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010

 

1. Basis of Presentation

The unaudited condensed financial statements in this Form 10-Q have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. We have continued to follow the accounting policies disclosed in the financial statements included in our 2010 Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). It is suggested that these statements be read in conjunction with the December 31, 2010 audited financial statements and the accompanying notes on Form 10-K, as filed with the SEC.

The interim financial information in this Form 10-Q reflects all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) necessary for a fair presentation of our results of operations for the interim periods. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full year.

Concentration of Risk

In the first quarter of fiscal 2011, one customer accounted for 18.3% of the Company’s revenue. The account has purchased from the Company since 1992. The account has serving locations and is a distributor of the Company’s product. A loss of this account or any other large account, or a significant reduction in sales to any of the Company’s principal customers, could have an adverse impact on the Company.

Segment Reporting

ASC 280, “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information”, changed the way public companies report information about segments of their business in their financial statements. It also requires entity-wide disclosures about the products and services an entity provides, the material countries in which it holds assets and reports revenues and its major customers. See Note 12

Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes under the asset and liability method as prescribed by ASC 740, Accounting for Income Taxes. As such, deferred income tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences of the differences between the financial statement carrying amount of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax basses. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.

A valuation allowance is established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.

8. Income Taxes

Deferred income taxes arise from temporary timing differences in the recognition of income and expenses for financial reporting and tax purposes. The Company’s deferred tax assets consist of the benefit from net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards and temporary differences. The net operating loss carryforwards expire in various years through 2031. The Company’s deferred tax assets are offset by a valuation allowance due to the uncertainty of the realization of the net operating loss carryforwards. Net operating loss carryforwards may be further limited by a change in company ownership and other provisions of the tax laws.

The Company’s deferred tax assets, valuation allowance, and change in valuation allowance as of March 31, 2011 are as follows:

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

In addition to historical information, this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. In some cases, forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as “believe,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “will,” “may,” and other similar expressions. In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements. These statements relate to, among other things, possible expansions into new and existing markets and trends in the operations of Thanksgiving Coffee Company, Inc. (“the Company”). Any forward-looking statements should be considered in light of various risks and uncertainties that could cause results to differ materially from expectations, estimates or forecasts expressed. These various risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: changes in general economic conditions, changes in business conditions in the coffee industry, fluctuations in consumer demand for coffee products and in the availability and costs of green beans, continuing competition within the Company’s businesses, variances from budgeted sales mix and growth rate, consumer acceptance of the Company’s products, inability to secure adequate capital to fund its operating expenses and working capital requirements, inability to hire, train and retain qualified personnel, concentration of production and sales in Northern California, the loss of one or more major customers, inability to successfully implement the Company’s sales goals, natural disasters, civil unrest in countries which produce coffee and tea, weather and other risks identified herein. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements that speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The Company’s forward-looking statements should also be considered in light of its reviewed financial statements, related notes and the other financial information appearing elsewhere in this report and in its other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. As a result of these risks and uncertainties, the Company’s actual results may differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. The Company assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements.

SUMMARY

Sales of the Company have eroded over the last five years primarily due to declines in the direct distribution sales method of the Company’s business (i.e., delivery by company truck). Increased competition, customer attrition and customers roasting green beans for their own use have all had a negative impact on the Company’s sales. The Company has tried a number of strategies that have not proven effective in abating these declines. The Company has changed its method of distribution to rely less on direct distribution (with only two routes) and instead uses independent distributors or shipping direct (via UPS or other common carrier). The effect of these changes on the Company’s sales has been limited but has reduced distribution expenses. Because of the limited impact of these changes, as well as the increase in cost of sales and other factors noted herein, there can be no assurances that the Company will be profitable in any future period, and, as a consequence, the Company is considering various strategic alternatives.

The Company pays substantially more for its green beans than the market price, because of quality, organic nature of many of its lines and the fact that it uses fair-traded coffees. Green bean costs have continued to rise and have placed pressure on margins. If green bean costs do not decline or continue to rise, whether as a consequence of inclement weather in a major producing area or any other event that affects green bean pricing, and the Company cannot offset costs by raising prices, it would have a negative impact on the Company and its margins.

The Company has a revolving line of credit for $25,000 of which $10,500 is currently outstanding and a term debt facility of $166,025 with the Savings Bank of Mendocino. The term debt is a five-year note renewed December 1, 2009 and is due December 1, 2014. The line of credit was verbally renewed on March 2011 and is renewed annually. If the credit line should not be renewed, the stability of the Company’s business would be in question. “See Liquidity and Capital Resources.”

The Company experienced a major fire at its plant and office facility on July 5, 2010. There were no reported injuries. The fire was deemed by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s office to be arson. As a result of the fire, the Company’s offices, packaging, tasting room and shipping facility were destroyed. However, the Company’s roasting and warehouse facility, where the Company stored most of its green beans, was not damaged. The Company has resumed it administrative, packaging, tasting and shipping activities using its remaining facility and renting additional office and warehouse space in the Fort Bragg area. The damaged portion of the facility has been razed and the Company is currently working with an architect to reconstruct the building. The Company expects that a portion of the loss resulting from the fire will be covered by its current building, personal property, business interruption and additional expense insurance, however, the full amount that the Company will be able to recover under this insurance policy is still being determined. Up to the first $1,000 of the loss will be borne by the Company as a deductible expense of the policy.

Combined net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2011 were $959,213, down 4.4%, or nearly $44,000 when compared with net sales of $1,003,088 for the same period in fiscal 2010.

Distribution revenues (e.g., revenues generated on the Company’s own truck distribution) were up $11,000 or 3% for the three months ended March 31, 2011, when compared with distribution sales for the same period in 2010.

National revenues (e.g., revenues not derived by mail order and direct truck distribution) were down $28,000, or 7% for the three months ended March 31, 2011 when compared to national sales for the same period in 2010. Lower volume for the distributor in southern California resulted in a drop in sales in this segment of the Company’s sales.

Mail order revenues (e.g., revenues generated from product sold directly to the consumer either through print media or the Internet) decreased $10,000, or 10% for the three months ended March 31, 2011 when compared to mail order sales for the same period in 2010. The decrease was attributable to a decline in the Company’s online store.

Sales of the Company’s bakery were down $17,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011 when compared to bakery sales for the same period in 2010. The Company has reduced the hours that the bakery is open and eliminated unprofitable items which resulted in lower sales.

Combined cost of sales for the three months ended March 31, 2011 were $638,993, down 1.4%, or over $9,000 when compared with the cost of sales of $648,305 for the same period in 2010. Lower sales volume was offset by higher cost of green coffee. The average cost of green coffee for the first quarter of 2011was $2.72 per pound compared to $2.42 for the same period in 2010 or an increase of $42,000.

Combined gross margin percentage (gross profit as a percentage of net sales) for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was 33.4%, down 2 percentage points when compared with gross margin of 35.4% for the same period in 2010. Higher costs for green coffee as noted above resulted in a drop in gross margin.

Combined selling, general and administrative expenses were $396,352 for the three months ended March 31, 2011, an increase of 1.5% or nearly $6,000 when compared with the selling, general and administrative expenses of $390,593 for the same period in 2010.

Combined depreciation and amortization expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2011 were $19,808, a 16.3% decrease, or nearly $4,000, when compared to depreciation expense of $23,671 for the same period in 2010.

Combined interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $6,376, a 17.9% decrease or over $1,000 compared with interest expense of $7,766 for the same period in 2010. Total debt is $253,376 at March 31, 2011 versus $269,154 at December 31, 2010.

As a result of the foregoing factors, the Company had a combined net loss of $78,442 for the three months ended March 31, 2011, compared to a loss of $70,263 for the same period in 2010. Because of the declines in sales and increases in the cost of green beans, there can be no assurances that the Company will be profitable in future periods

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of March 31, 2011, the Company had working capital of $105,735 versus working capital of $223,761 as of December 31, 2010. The decrease in working capital is due primarily to the decrease in cash, accounts receivable and inventory offset by a reduction in accounts payable and accrued liabilities in the first quarter. The reduction in cash in the first quarter was a result of an advance from the insurance company at year end which was used to reduce accounts payable and accrued liabilities in the first quarter.

Net cash used in operating activities was $34,206 for the three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $20,824 during the same period in 2010. The decrease in cash from operating activities in the first three months of 2011 was the result of a decrease in accounts payable offset somewhat by a reduction in accounts receivable and inventories.

Cash used in investing activities was $60,217 for the three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to $12,978 used in the same period in 2010. Capital additions for the first three months of 2011 were $23,000 for electrical upgrades in the warehouse to accommodate the packaging equipment, $20,000 for a new packaging sealer, $7,000 for a used pickup truck for the plant, $4,500 for additional computer equipment, $4,000 for brewing equipment.

Net cash used in financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $15,777 compared to net cash used in financing activities of $23,585 during the same period in 2010. The cash used by financing activities was a result of paying existing debt.

Because of the decline in cash used by operating activities and purchases of capital expenditures, cash at March 31, 2011 dropped by over $110,200 from the cash balance at January 1, 2011, but was $42,414 higher than cash at March 31, 2010.

In December 2009, the Company extended a term note with the Savings Bank of Mendocino. This note is for five years and is due on December 1, 2014 with an interest rate of 7.25%. The note is collateralized by the Company’s accounts receivable, inventory, equipment, instruments, general intangibles and contract rights. This note is personally guaranteed by the Company’s majority shareholders. As of March 31, 2011, the balance on the note is $166,025 (See Note 7 of Notes to the Financial Statements).

The Company also has a $25,000 line of credit with the Savings Bank of Mendocino. The credit line is interest only payments renewable annually at 2% over the prime rate with a minimum rate of 6.5 % and was verbally renewed in March, 2011. The rate was 6.50% at March 31, 2011 with an outstanding balance on the line of $10,500. The credit line is collateralized by a security interest of first priority in all accounts receivable, inventory, equipment, instruments, general intangibles and contract rights. The line of credit is personally guaranteed by the Company’s majority shareholders. (See Note 7 of Notes to Financial Statements)

The Company has an interest-only note for $19,919 at March 31, 2011, payable to the majority shareholders, directors and officers, Joan and Paul Katzeff. The interest-only note is at 12%, with balance due on demand after June 30, 1996 and is uncollateralized. (See Note 7 and Note 11 of Notes to Financial Statements)

At March 31, 2011, the Company had total borrowings of $253,376 including $176,525 owing to the Savings Bank of Mendocino. This compares to total borrowings of $269,154 as of December 31, 2010, including $187,366 outstanding to the Savings Bank of Mendocino.

Table of Contents

The Company is dependent on successfully executing its business plan to achieve profitable operations, obtaining additional sources of borrowings (including normal trade credit) and securing favorable financing arrangements (including lease financing) to finance its working capital needs. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in this regard. If the Company is not able to meet its credit obligations the stability of the Company’s business would be in question.

RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

From time to time, the Company enters into various transactions with its majority shareholders, Paul and Joan Katzeff. See note “11 — Related Party Transactions” in the Notes to the Financial Statements.

SEASONALITY AND OTHER FACTORS AFFECTING PERFORMANCE

The Company’s business is seasonal in nature. The seasonal availability of green bean coffee in the first two quarters of the year and increased sales in the last quarter historically creates a high use of cash and a build up in inventories in the first two quarters, with a corresponding decrease in inventory and increase in cash in the last quarter. Because of the seasonality of the Company’s business, results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full fiscal year. Furthermore, past seasonal patterns are not necessarily indicative of future results.

INDEMNIFICATION MATTERS

The Company’s Bylaws provide that the Company may indemnify its directors, officers, employees and other agents to the fullest extent permitted by California law. The Company believes that indemnification under its Bylaws also permits the Company to secure insurance on behalf of any officer, director, employee or other agent for any liability arising out of his or her actions in such capacity, regardless of whether California law would permit indemnification. The Company maintains such liability insurance for its directors and certain officers and employees.

At present, there is no pending litigation or proceeding involving any director, officer, employee or agent of the Company where indemnification would be required or permitted. The Company is not aware of any pending or threatened litigation or proceeding that might result in a claim for such indemnification.

ITEM 1A. RISK Factors

We have concerns regarding the current economic situation. The United States continues with high unemployment and slow economic growth. The price of coffee on the New York Coffee Sugar and Cocoa Exchange has more than doubled since June 2010. The unemployment rate for Mendocino County continues to be above the national average. All of these factors could have a significant effect on the Company’s ability to be profitable.

Our coffee roasting facility is subject to state and local air-quality and emissions regulations. If we encounter difficulties in obtaining any necessary licenses or complying with these laws and regulations our ability to produce any of our roasted products would be severely limited. We believe that we are in compliance in all material respects with all such laws and regulations and we have obtained all material licenses that are required for the operation of our business. We are not aware of any environmental regulations that have or that we believe will have a material adverse effect on our operations.

The Company experienced a major fire on July 5, 2010. The Company has building, personal property, extra expense, loss of rent and business interruption coverage which has been renewed at April 1, 2011. Although we have continued our packaging and shipping operations and have located our administrative and warehousing operations in leased facilities, we have not had a final settlement on the building and business personal property insurance. The Company has not begun to rebuild its facility. Up to the first $1,000 of the loss will be borne by the Company as a deductible per the terms of the policy.
