DBR Staff Writer Published 04 March 2016

Jones Soda Co. has announced results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2015.

For the fourth quarter of 2015, the Company reported revenue of $2.7 million, an increase of 10.9%, compared to the prior year's fourth quarter revenue of $2.4 million. For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company reported net revenue of $13.6 million, an increase of 0.3% compared to the prior year's revenue of $13.6 million.

Commenting on the results, Jones Soda CEO Jennifer Cue said, "We are pleased with the increased revenue for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2015. Despite the weakness in the Canadian dollar, we were still able to show double digit revenue growth in our core business fueled by increases in case volume. Looking forward in 2016, we anticipate strong revenue momentum from our new private label partnership with 7-Eleven, Inc. and the launch of our new brand, Lemoncocco. These new product lines, plus new Jones fountain partnerships, support our mission for sustainable, profitable growth."
