February 22, 2024

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla., Feb. 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innovative Food Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: IVFH) (“IVFH” or the “Company”), a national seller of gourmet specialty foods to Professional Chefs, today announced the completion of the sale of its Bonita Springs, Florida building. The Company sold the building for $2.455 million, netting approximately $1.9 million in cash proceeds after accounting for the agent fee of $147,300, the loan payoff of approximately $355,603, and other closing costs of $56,439.

IVFH has transitioned the majority of its Florida team to remote working positions, moved its server to its Chicago warehouse, and relocated the remaining Florida office roles to a significantly smaller 1,000 square foot leased office space. The net effect of the changes will also save the company approximately $60,000 per year in operating expenses.

Bill Bennett, CEO of IVFH, stated, “Today’s announcement is another step forward on our plan to stabilize the Company, payoff debt, and generate cash to invest in our profitable foodservice businesses. These actions, combined with our stronger margins, improved operating performance, and lower interest expense are setting us up to be a significantly stronger and more profitable company. We also continue to market our Pennsylvania warehouse for sale or lease, and have had strong interest so far, giving us confidence that we will soon unlock another approximately $5-9 million in capital, net of debt and fees, with the goal of eliminating all long-term debt for the Company. We also continue to search for the right internal and external investment and acquisition opportunities that can be immediately accretive and unlock growth synergies with our existing businesses.”
