Operational Results Summary

In a statement made by Christopher D. Bering, Chairman and CEO, he shared, “The Company has posted record results in the first quarter of 2021. Traditionally, the Company’s first quarter is the lowest revenue-producing quarter of our fiscal year however 2021 proved to be a significant exception. In addition to strength in our core business, our recently launched new product introductions have proven exceedingly successful. The Company’s spring product roll-out – the largest and most diverse in our history – strongly represents our move into higher-value categories.”

Mr. Bering continued, “To effectively accommodate our continuing high level of sales growth, and to better position the Company for the ongoing market shift toward e-commerce, we have opened a new distribution facility in the Pacific Northwest. This places our geographic footprint strategically across the country on both the East and West Coast, the Midwest, and the Pacific Northwest. Though it took us many years for us to accomplish this extraordinary feat, we are proud of the fact that we are deliberately situated to continue to take market share in the sizeable multi-billion-dollar domestic home décor market.”

Andrew Bass, Chairman of the Capital Allocation Committee, added that “the Company secured another consequential increase in its Line of Credit. This increase will ensure that our balance sheet can keep up with the higher business activity as well as provide operational financing for the foreseeable future. Simultaneously, the Company paid off its 5-year term loan in under three years. This prepayment should allow the Company more flexibility in its capital structure to explore ways to meaningfully increase intrinsic value per share while we focus on the Company’s next multi-year business cycle.”

Mr. Bass concluded, “we have filed our 2020 Reviewed Financial Statements that can be found at www.otcmarkets.com/stock/FTDL/disclosure. As the Company works to further professionalize its infrastructure, we are currently working with our accountants to set up processes to get the Company fully audited at the conclusion of the 2021 Fiscal Year. We are committed to constant improvement and transparency, as we continue to execute on our multi-year business strategy.”
