KNOXVILLE, TN, July 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – Blue Earth Resources, Inc. (“Blue Earth”) (OTCMKTS: BERI), a U.S. fuel distributor, announced its interim financial results for the quarter ended May 31, 2022, in its filing with the OTCIQ on June 26, 2022. In addition, Blue Earth recently entered into its first brand fuel supply under its former announced BP brand wholesaler contract. Highlights of the quarter included:
- Net sales increased by $10,963,496, or 102%, over the prior quarter
- Gallons sold increased 2,462,878, or 66%, from the prior quarter
- Gross margin/gallon of $0.030 for the quarter compared to $0.022 for fiscal 2022
- Execution of initial branded fuel supply contracts and Jobber point of sale incentive program
Scott M. Boruff, CEO of Blue Earth, said, “Despite the challenging credit situations in our industry, we continue to grow sales, both dollars and gallons, in the first quarter of fiscal 2023. Since implementing new controls around the monitoring of our net margins during the quarter, we made significant progress in this area.
In general, retail sales of refined fuels are largely based on high-volume, low-margin transactions. Blue Earth recorded a net profit margin of approximately $0.030/gallon for the quarter, compared to the industry average of approximately $0.024/gallon. Obtaining credit on favorable terms from the most advantageous suppliers has proven difficult, which has forced us to buy from suppliers offering less favorable prices for the majority of our transactions.
On June 9, 2022, we entered into our first branded fuel supply agreement under our recently concluded BP branded dealer agreement with a new convenience store location in LaVergne, Tennessee. The customer has also signed a Point of Sale Incentive Program (“JOIP”) contract which incentivizes the customer to adopt the BP brand and enter into a 10-year fuel supply contract. Once site development is complete, expected sales for the location are approximately 120,000 gallons per month.
“It is exciting to have our first fuel supply contract as a BP wholesaler,” said Billy Phipps, CMO of Blue Earth. Mr. Phipps continued, “We recruited a full-time salesperson in Q1 who is 100% dedicated to servicing new branded fueling customers. Our goal is to add at least one of these contracts per month over the next year. »
