Rod Little, Edgewell's president and CEO said, "In Q2, we delivered another quarter of solid growth reflecting strong demand for our products, continued market share gains and improving trends across many key brands, despite a higher-than-expected inflationary environment and significant supply chain disruptions. Looking ahead, we believe the supply chain disruptions are largely behind us, as evidenced by signs of a normalization within our product flow and an improvement of our on-shelf position; however, we expect increased commodity and transportation-related cost headwinds to persist, which is reflected in our revised outlook. Encouragingly, our results demonstrate the continued progress we are making in executing against our strategic priorities to transform Edgewell amidst a dynamic operating environment, while also maintaining our returns-focused investment stance—returning to shareholders over $59 million in the quarter."
