In addition, business milestones for the company included its acquisition of Squatty Potty, a leading health & wellness brand, as well as finalizing the acquisition of Photo Paper Direct Ltd., a leading online seller of printing supplies. Aterian is also eyeing additional potential M&A targets that, in total, have trailing 12 months’ net revenue of $613 million with trailing 12 months’ EBITDA of $91 million, and is discussing with top-tier investment banks options for financing structures to capitalize its accelerated M&A strategy and improve its cost of capital. “Despite the challenges e-commerce faced with strains on the global supply chain throughout the first quarter, Aterian remains well-positioned to capitalize on the continued global acceleration of e-commerce adoption and expanding market opportunities in the long-term,” said Aterian co-founder and CEO Yaniv Sarig in the press release. “Due to extreme shortages of containers and backlogs of ships at the Long Beach Port, we suffered from stockouts on some of our top SKUs aggregating to an estimate of approximately $6 million of missed revenue. However, our sourcing, supply chain and operations team continues to work diligently to resolve these issues, and we are continuing to monitor this global crisis closely.”
