  • Revenue for the quarter comes in 68.5% higher than the $67.25 million reported in Q2 2019.

Ethan Brown, president and CEO of Beyond Meat, said this about the earnings results.

“I am proud of our record net revenues and growth during a very challenging period. As the toll of the COVID-19 pandemic took hold across the foodservice industry, we repurposed assets and repacked and rerouted products to meet increased consumer activity in the retail aisles.”

Beyond Meat still isn’t providing guidance in its current earnings report. That’s due to the novel coronavirus. Many other companies are withholding outlooks during the pandemic.

BYND stock was down 7.5% after-hours Tuesday.
