Consolidated gross margin and operating leverage improvements in the fourth quarter drive strong adjusted EBITDA growth

(Unless stated otherwise, all fourth quarter 2019 comparisons are relative to the fourth quarter of 2018 and all fiscal year 2019 comparisons are relative to fiscal year 2018; all information is in U.S. dollars.)

TAMPA, FL – February 20, 2020 – Cott Corporation (NYSE:COT; TSX:BCB), a leading provider of home and office bottled water delivery and filtration services in North America and Europe, today announced its results for the fiscal year and fourth quarter ended December 28, 2019.

“We closed 2019 with a strong fourth quarter. Adjusted EBITDA increased over 20% led by our route-based services business, driven by organic growth in our HOD Water channel and improved operating leverage across both segments,” commented Tom Harrington, Cott’s Chief Executive Officer. “For the full year, we delivered adjusted revenue growth of 6%, adjusted EBITDA growth of 7% and delivered more than $150 million of adjusted free cash flow.”

Mr. Harrington continued, “We enter 2020 with strong momentum as we aggressively execute our transformation into a pure-play water solutions provider. We remain focused on successfully completing the acquisition of Primo Water while also smoothly transitioning the S&D business to Westrock Coffee Company. We are confident we will capture the previously identified $35 million in cost synergies, deliver margin expansion, and drive increased organic growth as a pure-play water solutions provider. We are truly excited about the opportunity to provide sustainable hydration solutions to a growing customer base and positioning the Company for continued growth, while also ensuring we deliver long-term shareholder value.”
