Scott T. Ford, CEO and co-founder, stated in the announcement: "In the second quarter, we continued to see year-over-year growth in our single serve cup and extract product lines which reinforces the mix shift we are seeing across our industry and allowed us to achieve first half 2022 Adjusted EBITDA growth of 27%, compared to the first half of 2021. The combination of our traditional seasonality trends which are back half of the year weighted, and the back half of the year ramp in our Adjusted EBITDA due to the startup of significant new single serve cup volume that came online in June, sets us up for a strong 2022.
“Like our customers, our results are not immune from the recent inflationary pressures experienced across the country, so we are pleased to see gasoline prices beginning to normalize. Overall, we remain very well-positioned to meet our customers’ expanding product needs in both the short and long term which should enable us to deliver corresponding strong financial results over time."
