"Our fourth quarter performance was marked by significant growth in all major areas of our business and represents a strong finish to another record year," said Daniel Birnbaum, chief executive officer of SodaStream, in a prepared statement. "Our efforts throughout 2012 to increase global awareness of our brand and category and expand our retail presence culminated in a very successful holiday season. For the first time ever we exceeded 1 million soda makers sold in a quarter, resulting in approximately 3.5 million soda makers for the year. Notably, U.S. sell-through of soda makers and consumables exceeded expectations, continuing our growth trajectory in the world's biggest soda market. We believe the growing strength of our brand equity driven by our new branding campaign, strategic partnerships and innovative product portfolio, including our newest soda maker, the Source, all set the stage for continued growth in 2013 and beyond."
