By May 16, 2016Latest News

IRVINE, CA–(Marketwired – May 16, 2016) – True Drinks, Inc. (OTC PINK: TRUU), makers of the zero-sugar, vitamin-enhanced AquaBall™ Naturally Flavored Water, today announces its financial results for the first quarter of 2016.

Kevin Sherman, Chief Executive Officer of True Drinks, commented, "As I shared with you in my letter to shareholders a month ago, the first part of 2016 has been about refocusing our business as a truly entrepreneurial venture. We have secured an agreement for $5.0 million in financing, of which $2.5 million has been received, to support our marketing efforts and our expansion into new channels. We have also restructured our sales organization and fine-tuned our operations. Our first run of our new preservative-free formula of AquaBall with our new co-packer Niagara Bottling, LLC has begun, and we are eager to capitalize on the opportunities that our new product and our new relationship with Niagara provide."

Dan Kerker, Chief Financial Officer of True Drinks, commented, "We are pleased to begin production of our new preservative-free product with Niagara Bottling this month. This new relationship will provide consistency in our cost of goods sold and great improvement in our gross margins. The first five months of 2016 have been a period of transition for True Drinks. With this transition, our first quarter numbers show negative margins, a figure exacerbated by the creation of an inventory reserve against the value of the remaining inventory of our current product. Both our revenue and gross margin figures will show improvement with our new preservative-free AquaBall."
