The Alkaline Water Company also reported a 57.3% improvement of earnings per share compared to the prior-year quarter and indicated that July’s purchase orders were the second-highest of any month in the company’s history. “Fiscal 2021 is off to a solid start with strong momentum across all our lifestyle brands. We delivered record fiscal Q1 revenue of $14.2 million and showed operational discipline with expenses down 5% year-over-year. During the last six months, we have performed exceptionally well, and according to Nielsen data, we outperformed the value-add water category by approximately 12% on a dollar sales basis and 16% on a unit basis. Our operational excellence during the pandemic is creating significant goodwill with existing channel partners, who are showing a stronger commitment to our brands, especially our single-serve, aluminum, and flavored water offerings. Alkaline88 remains one of the top-selling brands in the value-added water category,” Richard A. Wright, president and chief executive officer of The Alkaline Water Company, stated in the news release. “According to recent trade data, Alkaline88 was one of the two brands that showed double-digit growth as the category briefly turned negative in early July. With a solid sales pipeline in new and existing trades, our robust lineup of innovative products, and growing momentum in our lifestyle brands, we are excited about the opportunities in fiscal 2021 and beyond.”
