CEO Refresco, Hans Roelofs commented:

"We report a solid start of the year, in line with expectations and benefiting from the continued demand for beverage solutions by our customers across Europe and North America. We have been able to grow our volumes, accelerated by the completed acquisition of HANSA-HEEMANN and the acquisition of two plants formerly owned by The Coca-Cola Company in the United States.

On February 22, 2022, we welcomed KKR, one of the world’s most prominent investment firms, as our new majority owner. The investment by KKR is a very positive development for the Company. With KKR's support for our growth, innovation, and M&A strategy, we will be able to continue expanding our service offering for existing and new customers. We are also proud that PAI and BCI will continue as significant minority shareholders, which is a clear testament to our successful value creation.

In today's market we face challenges, that are a combination of a significant increase in input costs, as well as inflationary impact on all variable costs. We have taken various actions - including on pricing - to manage these challenges. The pressure on our margins in this first quarter is mainly due to a timing effect of the pricing actions we have executed with our customers. As we expect continued macroeconomic uncertainty and additional inflationary headwinds, we will continue to take appropriate action in order to create value for all our stakeholders.”
