“Today’s preliminary results demonstrate the continued strength of our well-diversified brand portfolio,” John Walbrecht, president, said in announcing the results. “Our sales growth, which we expect to flow through to adjusted EBITDA growth at an even higher rate, is a testament to the success and resilience of our ‘super fan’ brand strategy.
