Odd Burger Reports Record Revenue and Files Year End Financials, Management Discussion and Analysis

LONDON, ONMarch 27, 2024 /CNW/ - Odd Burger Corporation ("Odd Burger" or the "Company") (TSXV:ODD) (OTCQB: ODDAF) (FSE:IA9) is pleased to announce that its financial results for the fiscal year and the fourth quarter, ended September 30, 2023 have been posted with Canadian securities regulatory authorities at www.sedar.com.

"We are excited to announce that Odd Burger has achieved record revenue for our 2023 year-end financial results and that we have had our highest quarterly revenue of all time in our fourth quarter. Odd Burger increased yearly revenue to $3,243,091 from $2,952,028 the previous year, an improvement of 10.0% while cash flows used in operating activities decreased to $1,249,932 in 2023 from $2,522,012 the previous year, a decrease of 50.4%. In addition, gross margin in 2023 was $843,839 or 26.0% of revenue compared to $554,725 or 18.8% of revenue the year previous, an improvement of 34.3%," says James McInnes, CEO and Co-Founder of Odd Burger.

"We had an incredibly successful year, despite very challenging economic conditions including high inflation, rapidly rising interest rates and lower discretionary spending from consumers.  The key to our success has been improving efficiency at our manufacturing facility and corporate restaurant locations and driving growth through expanding our franchise operations.  Odd Burger currently has 13 operational locations, with 9 additional locations under construction and 136 locations under development quotas with area representatives in both Canada and the U.S.  We also launched our consumer packaged goods (CPG) line into select retailers, which has been extremely well received since launch.  In addition to our franchise operations, we see our CPG line as a key component to our future growth, and we are focused on finding ways to expand our production capacity to meet demand without incurring significant capital expenditures.  We believe that the alternative protein industry has tremendous potential, and we see Odd Burger as a driving force of innovation and leadership."
