This was due to the company’s distribution expansion, success in newly acquired territories, and the scaling up of the Sting energy drink. Despite inflation in raw materials, VBL was able to improve gross margins through early stockpiling of essential raw materials, selective price adjustments, discount rationalization, and improved realization, led by the higher visibility of the high-margin Sting product. Operating leverage benefits contributed to an improvement in EBITDA margins. VBL is well-positioned to benefit from the early onset of the summer season, which is expected to drive overall beverage sales across regions.
