BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Celsius Holdings, Inc., (Other OTC:CELH) the creator and marketer of Celsius®, the world's first Negative Calorie beverage backed by clinical science, today reported its results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.
Results for the second quarter reflect investments in transitioning international production to Dusseldorf, Germany which provides the Company a firm footing for continued international expansion and reduced inventory lead times for customers resulting in more frequent inventory turns. Revenues for the quarter were impacted due to this transition. Domestically, the Company continues to invest in key "Drill Deep" regions through Social and Digital Media, Celebrity Endorsements, and Ambassador Teams.
"We are making excellent progress and our products are resonating well with consumers both domestically and abroad. Over the last nine months we worked diligently and took steps to improve the Company's sales cycle and lead times for our current and future customers abroad with much success. In addition, as a result of our marketing initiatives, we continue to attract new daily consumers and industry-wide brand recognition," said Mr. Gerry David, Chief Executive Officer. According to IRI domestic data for a 52 week rolling period ending 6-15-14, Celsius was ranked 112 out of 599 brands in the Energy, RTD Coffee/Tea, Waters, Isotonic, Functional, Water and Coconut Water. Celsius was +43%/dollar volumes, +88%/unit volumes. Of the top 125 brands, 59 (47%) are declining in sales while Celsius continues its growth domestically.
