Quoting Management: Daniel Birnbaum, Chief Executive Officer of SodaStream, commented, “Our business performed very well during the second quarter, with revenue up 29% year-over-year on top of very strong gains a year ago that were fueled by the launch at Wal-Mart. Importantly, operating income grew at a faster pace than revenue as we leveraged expenses to drive earnings per share ahead of expectations. With global first half unit sales of soda makers, gas refills and flavors up 18%, 30%, and 25% respectively, we are making great progress against our plan to grow our installed base and strengthen user loyalty. Our strong momentum in the Americas and Western Europe, combined with improving trends in Asia-Pacific, position us well to achieve our upwardly revised outlook for 2013.”
