Commenting on the Company’s performance, President and CEO Mike Tattersfield stated, «We were pleased with our strong organic revenue growth in the third quarter, led by an acceleration in growth in the U.S. and Canada and Market Development. Margins improved significantly in the final period of the quarter as we successfully implemented price increases in the U.S. coupled with decreased promotional activity after Labor Day. Strong momentum continues into the fourth quarter enhanced by further recent pricing actions in the U.S. and U.K. and a robust global Halloween performance.»
Mike continued, «Our international expansion strategy is progressing at a healthy pace. Just recently we opened in Jordan and announced a joint venture to enter into France in 2023. We are excited to also announce a new development agreement to open in Jamaica next year, bringing our total development deals signed in 2022 to 7 international countries, representing over 5,000 new potential points of access.»
