258 Days ago

IRVINE, CA --(Marketwired - March 24, 2016) - True Drinks, Inc. (OTC PINK: TRUU), a healthy beverage provider and maker of children's beverage, AquaBall, today announced its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2015.

Revenue for the year ending December 31, 2015 was $6.1 million compared to $4.7 million in the same period 2014, a 30% increase. For the year ending December 31, 2015, net loss was $11.9 million compared to $8.1 million in the year ending December 31, 2014. The increase in loss was due to the issuance of a warrant in connection with the Niagara Bottling, LLC bottling agreement.

"2015 was a year of several positive changes at True Drinks. We've added employees to further enhance our marketing and sales strategy, signed an agreement with Niagara Bottling to be our exclusive manufacturer of our new preservative-free, zero-sugar formulation for AquaBall™ Naturally Flavored Water, and continued to build demand in new channels," stated Kevin Sherman, Interim Chief Executive Officer of True Drinks. "We believe that our current sales strategy will build market share and provide increased contribution to our earnings. In addition, we've developed a new marketing plan showcasing AquaBall™ as the healthiest drink on the market for kids and reaching the ultimate decision maker in that purchase -- moms. These improvements will allow us to capture an increased percentage of the children's beverage market."

2015 Highlights:

  • Entered into a bottling agreement with Niagara Bottling to become our exclusive manufacturer
  • Developed new preservative free formula of AquaBall to be launched in May 2016
  • Renewed licensing agreement with Disney through March 2017
  • Renewed licensing agreement with Marvel through December 2017
  • Shifted to a DSD (Direct Store Distribution) model for all sales to the grocery, drug and convenience channels in November 2015

Mr. Sherman continued, "We are confident in the opportunities that we have as a company in 2016 and beyond. Our new clean-label product with no preservatives, zero sugar and zero calories is launching in May 2016. This new formulation gives us access to new markets such as the health food retail channel. Our new bottle also gives us expanded opportunities in the convenience market. AquaBall™ is leading the charge in healthy hydration for kids, and we will continue to be the innovator in this market."

Management is very optimistic for the future prospects for AquaBall™ as one of the fastest growing companies in the children's drink market. True Drinks will be issuing a letter to shareholders with a business outlook for 2016 by April 15th.
