good natured Products CEO Paul Antoniadis said, “We ended 2021 on an extremely positive note by delivering the Company’s highest ever quarterly revenue and strongest percentage growth of FY2021. Our preliminary gross margins show an improvement from the third quarter despite supply chain inflation that persisted throughout the remainder of the year. Our Q4 2021 and FY2021 results are a function of robust demand across our various business segments, driving a strong recurring customer rate, execution on our acquisition strategy, and proactive monitoring and adapting to quickly changing cost structures and supply chain conditions.”
