Ethan Brown, president and CEO, commented, "Beyond Meat is implementing measures to drive more sustainable growth, emphasising the achievement of cash flow positive operations within the second half of 2023.
"While we believe the current headwinds facing our business and category —including record inflation—are transient, our mission, brand, and long-term opportunity endure. To manage through the current environment and realise the opportunity ahead, we are significantly reducing expenses and sharpening our focus on a set of key growth priorities."
The company expects full-year revenue to be in the range of about $400 million (€410.4 million) to $425 million (€436 million) compared with previous expectations of between $470 million (€482.2 million) to $520 million (€533.5 million).
Shares of the company were down nearly 7% in premarket trading as Beyond Meat said that it would incur a one-time cash charge of about $4 million (€4.1 million) related to the job cuts in the fourth quarter.
Brown, added, "We believe our decision to reduce personnel and expenses throughout the company, including our leadership group, reflects an appropriate right-sizing of our organisation given current economic conditions. We remain confident in our ability to deliver on the long-term growth and impact expected from our global brand."
