Arcadia Biosciences (RKDA) Announces First Quarter 2024 Financial Results and Business Highlights


Arcadia Biosciences, Inc.® (Nasdaq: RKDA), a producer and marketer of innovative, plant-based health and wellness products, today released its financial and business results for the first quarter of 2024.

"Arcadia continued its positive trajectory in the first quarter of 2024," said Stan Jacot, president and CEO. "Revenue continues to grow, both sequentially and year-over-year, and we have transitioned the topline to high-quality revenue that generates gross profit across multiple sources. Operating expenses continued to decline at a double-digit pace versus last year, and this is now our fifth straight quarter of gross profit margins greater than 30 percent.

"Our GoodWheattm is in more than 3,500 stores in three categories, and Zola® coconut water is positioned for double-digit growth with new flavors and distribution. And finally, we remain focused on monetizing our IP and accelerating delivery of cashflow positive results," he added.

More detailed financial statements are included in the Form 8-K filed today, available in the Investors section of the company's website under SEC Filings.

Revenues

Revenues increased slightly during the first quarter of 2024 compared to the same period in 2023 driven by GoodWheat and Zola sales, partially offset by higher costs associated with new distribution.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses decreased $780,000 during the first quarter of 2024 compared to the same period in 2023, primarily driven by a decrease in selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses related to rightsizing the organization and marketing investment.

Net Loss Attributable to Common Stockholders

Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the first quarter of 2024 was $2.4 million, or $1.78 per share, a $7.0 million improvement from the $9.4 million, or $10.86 per share, net loss for the first quarter of 2023. The improvement in net loss attributable to common stockholders for the first quarter of 2024 compared to the same period in 2023 was primarily driven by the valuation loss related to the March 2023 financing transaction.
