Our third quarter 2019 financial results reflect the outstanding work our team is doing to drive higher volumes through deeper replacements and existing and new accounts as well as leveraging our infrastructure to improve profitability all while demand for Celsius continues to rise. We are capitalizing on the accelerated macro industry trends for healthy better-for-you products that are driven by the growing demand by health mining consumers looking for healthier alternatives to conventional products. We are seeing great demand for the Celsius portfolio and are outpacing many larger more established brands as we position ourselves as a leader in functional energy drinks through our health and fitness routes providing proven functional energy differentiating ourselves from the competition.
