Despite this, and as budgeted, the Company achieved EBITDA profitability, while our focus on fewer leading brands has helped deliver strong growth, with 9% LFL revenue growth.

We have established a robust platform and are now achieving substantial operational leverage through the acquisition of ABT and launch of further products. The high growth, emerging markets remain a key priority for the Company and we are actively discussing several new commercial opportunities."
