Management Believes Company is Well-Positioned to Lead High-Opportunity Consumer Category
Tarrytown, NY, Oct. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — Nightfood Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), the better-for-you snack company addressing America’s $50 Billion nighttime snacking problem, yesterday announced its financial results for the Fiscal Year ended June 30, 2021.
The Company reported recent business highlights, including:
- Increased net revenue over 190% from previous year. The Company’s net revenue for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021 was $701,246, exceeding previous estimates, compared to $241,673 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020.
- National hotel rollout. Nightfood recently announced the completion of a successful retail pilot test of Nightfood ice cream in lobby shop freezers with a leading global hotel chain. The chain reported robust sales during the test period. Rollout logistics and timeline are now being finalized by the hotel chain, and chainwide distribution of Nightfood is expected to begin in the current quarter or in the first quarter of calendar year 2022. Nightfood has engaged iDEAL Hospitality Partners Group to accelerate and support the introduction of Nightfood’s sleep-friendly snacks into additional hotel chains.
- Doubled retail points of distribution. In April, Nightfood announced the brand had added distribution in over one dozen Walmart regions, more than doubling the brand’s retail footprint to over 1,500 supermarkets. In addition to those Walmart stores, Nightfood is available in Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s and Star Market (both divisions of Albertson’s), Central Market (a division of H-E-B), Rouses Markets, Lowes Foods, Market of Choice, Metropolitan Market and other independent chains and retailers.
- Expanded Board of Directors. Nightfood appointed venture capitalist Nisa Amoils, Dr. Thanuja Hamilton, a nationally recognized physician and authority in sleep medicine, and consumer goods visionary Tom Morse, co-founder of 5-Hour Energy to the Board of Directors. In addition, Nightfood also retained ice cream industry veteran and CPA Jerry Isaacson significantly strengthening the Company’s expertise in ice cream logistics, manufacturing, and procurement.
- Strengthened balance sheet. The Company successfully completed a financing/refinancing round totaling $5,000,000. Funds were used to eliminate all company debt, greatly reduce payables, and support 2021 growth initiatives.
“I’m proud to share what we’ve accomplished during this transformational year,” commented Nightfood CEO Sean Folkson. “We view the growth in store count, gross sales and net revenue simply as preliminary validators of the importance of nighttime nutrition, which we believe is the next great consumer health category.”
“Nighttime snacking is not going away, it’s hard-wired. The understanding of the bi-directional link between nutrition and sleep quality is growing, and we believe there is increasing interest from both the general public, and some of the largest food and beverage companies in the world. As the category pioneer, our goal is to remain the category leader as it evolves and matures. We believe we’re powerfully positioned to do exactly that and we hope to capture a meaningful portion of the $50 billion spent annually on snacks consumed between dinner and bed.”
“We’re excited about the success of our hotel pilot test, and the enthusiastic response we’re receiving in discussions with additional hotel chains. We believe the hotel vertical can serve as a unique and powerful competitive advantage for the Nightfood brand. We envision leveraging Nightfood distribution in thousands of hotel lobbies to introduce and validate the category of sleep-friendly snacks to consumers, expand from ice cream into additional snack formats, and solidify our valuable position as the pioneer and leader in the billion-dollar snack category we’re projecting.”

About Nightfood: Pioneering the Night Snack Category
Over 80% of Americans snack regularly at night, resulting in an estimated 700 million nighttime snack occasions weekly, and an annual spend on night snacks of over $50 billion. The most popular choices are ice cream, cookies, chips, and candy. Recent research confirms these snacks, in addition to being generally unhealthy, can impair sleep due to excess fat and sugar consumed before bed.
Nightfood is pioneering the category of night snacks. Nightfood ice cream, the brand’s first mainstream product, is uniquely formulated by sleep and nutrition experts to contain less of those sleep-disruptive ingredients, along with a focus on ingredients and nutrients that research suggests can support nighttime relaxation and better sleep quality.
Unlike regular ice cream, Nightfood was formulated to contain more tryptophan, vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium, zinc, prebiotic fiber, and casein protein. It also has less sugar, less fat, and a lower glycemic profile. Because of its great taste and unique nutritional profile, Nightfood has been endorsed as the Official Ice Cream of the American Pregnancy Association and is the recommended ice cream for pregnant women.
The brand won the 2019 Product of the Year award in the ice cream category in a Kantar survey of over 40,000 consumers. Nightfood was also named Best New Ice Cream in the 2019 World Dairy Innovation Awards.
Nightfood ice cream is available in divisions of Walmart, Albertson’s, and H-E-B, as well as many regional supermarket chains and independent retailers, and select hotel locations.
