“Ongoing supply chain disruptions at consumer packaged goods companies have impacted product availability across all markets including the convenience distribution industry in which our Company operates. Additionally, the United States is experiencing an acute workforce shortage which has created a hyper-competitive wage environment which has impacted the Company’s operations. Our customer base continues to grow geographically and AMCON is deploying the capital and human resources necessary to support our customers’ growth in a collaborative fashion,” said Andrew C. Plummer, AMCON’s President and Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Plummer further noted, “We are actively searching for facilities in, and adjacent to, the geographic markets we serve.”

Charles J. Schmaderer, AMCON’s Chief Financial Officer said, “AMCON is pleased with the progress of our strategic investment in Team Sledd, LLC. In addition, AMCON ended the quarter with $71.4 million of shareholders’ equity and we continue to diligently focus on maintaining high levels of liquidity in our business to support operations and our growth initiatives.”

AMCON’s Healthy Edge Retail Group plays an important role in the health and wellness of the communities it serves. Throughout the pandemic, our management team has worked diligently to offer a continuous and safe shopping experience for customers. Our long term relationship with the organic/natural products vendor community has enabled our stores to meet the demands of our customers for total wellness solutions. Our strategy is to offer a broad selection of the highest quality organic and natural merchandise available supported by a high degree of customer service not found at other big box retailers within our industry.
