Ranpak Holdings Corp. , a leading provider of environmentally sustainable, systems-based, product protection solutions for e-Commerce and industrial supply chains, reported its second quarter 2021 financial results.

Omar Asali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Ranpak delivered an outstanding second quarter, with very strong net revenue and profitability growth. Net revenue for the quarter increased 29.1% year over year on a constant currency basis to $87.5 million, driven by broad-based strength across the globe with both North America and Europe/APAC meaningfully contributing to the top-line outperformance.

We experienced robust demand for all protective packaging products fueled by continued elevated e-Commerce activity, improving industrial activity, and a growing focus on sustainability contributing to new business wins globally. This strong top-line growth was surpassed by our growth in profitability as Adjusted EBITDA increased 34.7% on a constant currency basis to $25.6 million. Activity levels in a variety of end markets are driving growth, with strong momentum in the business as organizations worldwide seek to make their supply chains more efficient and more environmentally friendly.”

“On a year-to-date basis, net revenue is up 30.1% in constant currency. Given the increased demand for our products and underlying strength in the end markets, we expect to continue to deliver strong growth in 2021 surpassing our expectations from the start of the year and expect to finish with a record year at Ranpak, despite having second half comparisons that are more challenging given our robust 2020 performance. Our team is adeptly maneuvering through this dynamic market and working extremely hard to serve our customers. I am extremely proud of the phenomenal effort.”

“As we look further ahead, Ranpak is uniquely positioned to benefit from several key trends that have been accelerated by COVID-19: e-Commerce taking share from brick and mortar, increased Automation adoption, and an increased awareness by the consumer on the amount of plastic and foam in supply chains. We are seizing this opportunity by investing in innovation, capacity, and resources to help the team execute to achieve our substantial growth ambitions.”
