2 Green Flags and 1 Red Flag With TTCF’s New Acquisition Deal

In today’s video I look at Tattooed Chef‘s (NASDAQ:TTCF) recent acquisition of New Mexico Food Distributors and Karsten Tortilla Factory. Below I share some green flags and one red flag investors should note with this deal.

Green flags:

  1. Tattooed Chef reaps a few strategic benefits from this deal. It is increasing its manufacturing capacity and diversifying into the Hispanic/Southwest market. It is also expanding outside the frozen food market and into snacks and other ambient products.
  2. Tattooed Chef gave an update on its future outlook, which involves a significant improvement in revenue growth. Before the acquisition it was expecting 49% year over year for revenue. After the acquisition it expects 58% to 63% growth, and this guidance will be updated later this year when another production plant opens up. 

Red flag:

  1. With the updated guidance for FY 2021, Tattooed Chef expects adjusted EBITDA in the range of $2 million to $4 million and is giving no guidance on net income, when previously it guided for adjusted EBITDA in the range of $8 million to $10 million and net income in the range of $2.5 million to $5 million. As investors we should note that the decrease in adjusted EBITDA and lack of guidance on net income might suggest a loss for the year.
