SALINAS, Calif. , July 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Scheid Vineyards Inc.

First Quarter Results ( March 1, 2018May 31, 2018 )

Revenues for the 1 st quarter of Fiscal 2019 increased to $10.2 million , from $8.5 million for the same period in the 1 st quarter of Fiscal 2018.  Revenues for the period were offset by cost of sales of $8.3 million ; general and administrative expenses of $2.6 million ; selling expenses of $2.2 million ; and interest expense of $1.0 million . Revenues for the 1 st quarter of Fiscal 2018 were offset by cost of sales of $6.3 million ; general and administrative expenses of $2.2 million ; selling expenses of $1.6 million ; and interest expense of $0.7 million . After adjustments for income taxes, the net loss for 1 st quarter of Fiscal 2019 was $2.7 million ( $3.08 per share), as compared to $1.4 million ( $1.54 per share) in the 1 st quarter of Fiscal 2018.

Mr. Mike Thomsen , Chief Financial Officer of the Company, stated, "First quarter results are in line with our expectations. The increase in revenues is primarily due to an increase in the sale of cased goods and bulk wine.  The bulk wine and grape business is seasonal, and a significant portion of grape crop sales revenue comes at the time of the annual harvest in September and October. Contracted bulk wine sales takes place primarily in December and beyond each year. The increase in general and administrative, and selling expenses in the Fiscal 2019 period was due primarily to the increased emphasis on sales, marketing and related administrative support of case sales."

Restatement of Fiscal 2018 Results

Mr. Thomsen also reported that the Company had restated its earnings for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018 . "Subsequent to the issuance of our annual financial statements, the Company discovered an error that occurred during the changeover to a new business intelligence reporting system that duplicated an accrual of certain bulk wine sales in the amount of $1,469,000 .  The consolidated financial statements for the Fiscal year ended February 28, 2018 have been revised to include the reversal of this accrual, and as a result accounts receivable and sales have been reduced by $1,469,000 , and net income has been reduced by $1,058,000 from previously reported amounts. Restated financial statements will be sent to shareholders in a few days."

2018 Harvest Update

Mr. Scott Scheid , President and CEO of the Company, stated, "The annual grape harvest usually begins in late August in the Company's southernmost vineyards, and it is expected that the harvest will be in full swing by mid-September.  This timing is normal for wine grape vineyards on the Central Coast of California . At the present time, management anticipates that yields from the Company's vineyards during the upcoming harvest will be at average levels for most varieties."
