Notes to Financial Statements

September 30, 2011 (unaudited) 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 Securities and Exchange Commission.

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 nine months ended September 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full year.

Concentration of Risk

For the ninth month period ending September 2011, one customer accounted for 19% 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 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.

2. Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable consist of the following:

 

     9/30/2011     12/31/2010  

Accounts receivable

   $ 250,114      $ 305,621   

Less: allowance for doubtful accounts

     (5,007     (8,035
  

 

 

   

 

 

 

Net accounts receivable

   $ 245,107      $ 297,586   
  

 

 

   

 

 

 

The Company utilizes a percentage method to establish the allowance for doubtful accounts. The estimated allowance ranges from 1% to 10% of outstanding receivables based on factors pertaining to the credit risk of specific customers, historical trends and other information. Delinquent accounts are written off when it is determined that amounts are uncollectible. Bad debt expense (recovery) for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 was $(1,534) and $(209) respectively.

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) carry forwards and temporary differences. The net operating loss carry forwards expire in various years through 2030. The Company’s deferred tax assets are offset by a valuation allowance due to the uncertainty of the realization of the net operation loss carry forwards. Net operating loss carry forwards 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 September 30, 2011 are as follows:

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

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 $ 0 is currently outstanding and a term debt facility of $145,932 with the Savings Bank of Mendocino. The term debt is a five-year note due December 1, 2014 and the line of credit 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.”

Distribution revenues (e.g., revenues generated on the Company’s own truck distribution) were up over $55,000 or 13.7% for the three months ended September 30, 2011, when compared with distribution sales for the same period in 2010. Sales on the coast of Mendocino and Humboldt counties were up for the quarter.

National revenues (e.g., revenues not derived by mail order and direct truck distribution) were up over $64,000, or 16% for the three months ended September 30, 2011 when compared to national sales for the same period in 2010. The increase in sales is primarily in North Central Valley area.

Mail order revenues (e.g., revenues generated from product sold directly to the consumer either through print media or the Internet) increased $15,000, or 17% for the three months ended September 30, 2011 when compared to mail order sales for the same period in 2010. Sales increases were a result of having more normal production of package product in 2011 versus the fire-related shortages in 2010.

Sales of the Company’s bakery were down $20,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2011 when compared to bakery sales for the same period in 2010. Lower customer counts and lower sales dollars per transaction contributed to the decline.

This increase was a result of continuing higher cost of green beans. Average cost per pound in the third quarter was $3.38 versus $2.48 for the same period in 2010, or over $137,000 in additional green bean cost.

Gross margin percentage (gross profit as a percentage of net sales) for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was 29 %, down 10 % when compared with gross margin of 39% for the same period in 2010.

The increases are in Wages, timing of billing for 2010 Tax Return which typically is billed in second quarter, and the new SEC requirement for 10Q - xBRL filings.

Depreciation and amortization expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2011 were $21,237 compared to $21,736 for the same period in 2010.

Interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was $6,234 compared with interest expense of $8,769 for the same period in 2010.

Miscellaneous income for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was $292,512 versus $107,080 for the same period in 2010. The increase in other income is the result of advances from the insurance company over the expenses incurred by the Company through September 30, 2011. As a result of the foregoing factors, the Company had a net profit of $192,620 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, compared to a profit of $99,861 for the same period in 2010, however, operating profit before insurance advances for the three month period ended September 30, 2011 was a loss of ($93,658) compared to a profit of $1,550 for the same period 2010 The higher cost of green beans is a major contributing factor of the operating profit loss.

Net sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 were $3,152,613 an increase of over $69,000 or 2.3%, when compared to sales of $3,083,055 for the same period in 2010.

Distribution revenues (e.g., revenues generated on the Company’s own truck distribution) were up $75,000 or 6%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 when compared to the same period in 2010. Sales were higher this year because of a more normal delivery schedule in the third quarter of 2011 compared to the startup of deliveries after the fire in 2010. Sales of the Company’s north coast territory were also improved.

National Revenues (e.g., revenues not derived by mail order and direct truck distribution) were up $35,000 or 3%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 when compared to sales for the same period in 2010. The increase was a result of normal shipments during the third quarter of 2011 compared to the reduced shipments in 2010 because of the fire.

Mail order revenues (e.g., revenues generated from product sold directly to the consumer either through print media or the Internet) were up $7,000 or 3% for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 when compared to sales for the same period in 2010. Sales for the first six months of 2011 were down 6%, but have increased in the third quarter over the third quarter of 2010 which was down because of the fire.

Sales of the Company’s bakery were down $56,000 or 14%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 when compared to the same period in 2010 because of a decline in customer counts and lower sales dollars per transaction.

Cost of sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 were $2,086,726 an increase of nearly $186,000 or 9.7% when compared with the cost of sales of $1,901,449 for the same period in 2010. The increase was a result of higher green bean costs. Green bean costs per pound have risen from $2.46 in 2010 to 3.03 in 2011 resulting in an increase of nearly $245,000 offset by lower payroll expenses and rent expense paid by the insurance company because of the fire.

Gross margin (gross profit as a percentage of net sales) for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was 33.8%, down 4.5% when compared with gross margin of 38.3% for the same period in 2010. The drop in gross margin is attributed to the higher bean costs at the coffee company offset somewhat by lower payroll and rent expense noted above.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $1,156,514 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, a decrease of nearly $18,000 or 1.5%, when compared to selling, general and administrative expenses of $1,174,160 for the same period in 2010. The decrease was a result of a decrease in rent expense paid by the insurance company because of the fire and lower commission expense.

Depreciation and amortization expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 were $58,429 a decline of over $9,629 or 14.2%, when compared to depreciation and amortization expenses of $68,058 for the same period in 2010. The decrease was a result of assets that were written off because of the fire at year end and not yet replaced.

Interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $18,992 a decrease of over $5,000 or 21.4%, when compared to interest expense of $24,149 for the same period in 2010. Total debt has been reduced by over $76,000 since December 31, 2010.

Miscellaneous income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $316,032 or $213,580 higher when compared to miscellaneous income of $102,452 for the same period in 2010. Increases in miscellaneous income this year was a result of continuing insurance company settlements for the fire loss incurred July 5, 2010.

As a result of the forgoing items, the Company had a net profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 of $147,183 compared to a net profit of $16,891 for the same period in 2010, as opposed to operating losses of ($149,057) and ($60,612) for the same nine month periods. Because of past sales decline, increases in green bean costs and the unresolved claim with the insurance carrier, there can be no assurances that the Company will be profitable in any future periods.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of September 30, 2011, the Company had working capital of $318,728 versus working capital of $244,700 as of December 31, 2010. The increase in working capital is due primarily to the increase in inventory offset by higher payables.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $105,399 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 compared to net cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 of $309,551. The decrease in net cash provided by operating activities in the nine months of 2011 was principally the result of the advances from the insurance company relating to the Company’s fire coverage were reduced this year compared to last and the increase in green bean inventory purchases this year.

Cash used in investing activities was $82,749 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 compared to $39,294 used in the same period in 2010. Capital additions for the first nine months of 2011 were $23,000 to rewire the warehouse to accommodate all of the packing equipment, $7,000 for a used pickup truck, $5,000 for a T-1 communication line, $13,500 for new local area network computer servers and upgraded Microsoft office programs, $13,500 for brewing equipment and $20,000 for a new bag sealer.

Net cash used in financing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $76,015 compared to net cash used in financing activities of $39,750 during the same period in 2010. The increase in cash used in financing activities was a result of repayment of debt including the $19,919 note payable due to the principal shareholders.

Because of the reduction in cash settlements from the insurance company and the repayment of debt along with the increase in green bean inventory, cash at September 30, 2011 decreased by $53,366 versus the cash balance at January 1, 2011. There was an $147,178 decrease in cash versus the same nine month period ending September 30, 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 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 along with the Director of the Company, Nicolas Hoskyns . 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 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

The Company’s stock is generally illiquid and there have been few trades in recent years. There have been three trades in the Company’s Common Stock since 1999. In June 2004, 750 shares were traded at $4.50 per share. In December 2005, 400 shares were traded at $2.00 per share.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

We have concerns regarding the current economic situation. The United States and the global economy is experiencing severe instability in the commercial and investment banking systems which likely to continue to have far-reaching effects on the economic activity in the country for an indeterminable period. The long-term impact on the United States economy and the Company’s operating activities and ability to raise capital cannot be predicted at this time, but may be substantial.

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, business personal property, extra expense, loss of rent and business interruption insurance coverage which was renewed on April 1, 2011. Although the Company has continued the packaging and shipping operations and has located the administrative and warehousing operation in leased facilities, the Company has not begun to rebuild its facility but has been working with architects to develop a design concept to prepare building construction estimates. Up to the first $1,000 of the loss will be borne by the Company as a deductible per the terms of the policy. There can be no assurances that the Company will have sufficient resources to rebuild and maintain it current business.
