    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (NASDAQ and CSE: WTER) (the “Company”), a producer of bottled alkaline drinking water, flavor-infused waters, and CBD infused products sold under the brand name Alkaline88®, A88-Infused™, and A88CBD™, respectively.

The Company also filed with the SEC its Form 10-K for the full fiscal year 2020 and its form 10-Q for the fiscal first quarter of 2021 on August 13, 2020.   Key Highlights: * Record fiscal first quarter 2021 revenue increased approximately 40% year over year and 18% sequentially.  * Earnings per share of ($0.05) improved by 57.3% compared to the prior-year quarter.  * July’s purchase orders were the second-highest of any month in the Company’s history.“Fiscal 2021 is off to a solid start with strong momentum across all our lifestyle brands. We delivered record fiscal Q1 revenue of $14.2 million and showed operational discipline with expenses down 5% year-over-year. During the last six months, we have performed exceptionally well, and according to Nielsen data, we outperformed the value-add water category by approximately 12% on a dollar sales basis and 16% on a unit basis. Our operational excellence during the pandemic is creating significant goodwill with existing channel partners, who are showing a stronger commitment to our brands, especially our single-serve, aluminum, and flavored water offerings. Alkaline88 remains one of the top-selling brands in the value-added water category. According to recent trade data, Alkaline88 was one of the two brands that showed double-digit growth as the category briefly turned negative in early July.

Also, our sales pipeline for our A88CBD line of topical and ingestible products is robust. We are finding great success with non-traditional retailers like CBD only dispensaries, MSO’s and high-volume online stores. In recent weeks we have added approximately 25 retail locations and 2 online wholesalers that now carry the A88CBD brand. We expect our line of in-demand topical and ingestible products to accelerate growth in the second half of fiscal 2021 as retailers undergo planogram resets.
