July 20, 2015

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--National Beverage Corp. (NASDAQ: FIZZ) today reported results for the fiscal year ended May 2, 2015.

For the fiscal year 2015, National Beverage Corp. reports sales of $645.8 million and a net income of $49.3 million.

“Our FY2015 performance yielded several ‘discoveries’ and simultaneously certified that America’s health-conscious consumer is more than ‘talking the talk’ . . . they are ‘drinking the drink’. That drink is LaCroix Sparkling Water,” stated Nick A. Caporella, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

“We have had two distinct virtues working in harmony this FY2015. One is our dynamic innovation and the other is our agility (size). No other large soft-drink producer can match our maneuvering speed. Whether it can be defined as ‘changing the mix’ or ‘mixing the change’, our Company’s product mix is dynamic and will remain that way into the future. While volume for FY2015 was not our focus, changing the product mix while increasing operating profits – Was! And we did it!” continued Caporella.

“Our Company is the leader in developing healthier soft drinks and our new Shasta Sparkling Water replicates Shasta’s wonderful soft drink flavors in essence and taste! Yes – no sweeteners, no sodium, no calories and no guilt! With this introduction . . . the entire sparkling water value spectrum can be serviced with National Beverage products!”

“It truly was a ‘Discovery Year’ . . . we learned how to thread a needle in a gusty-winded industry and give our loyal consumers a great, healthy, refreshing advantage – to boot. Discovery? I’d say so!” Caporella concluded.
