Revenue increased by 13.3% to Eur308.6m and EBITDA by 16.6% to Eur68.2m.as the company gained market shares across its key markets. During 2010, Stock built upon its clear position as spirits market leader in Poland, where its share was up 10% to 36% against a market decline of 4.7%, and in the Czech Republic, where its share also advanced to 36%.

Stock is one of the top vodka producers globally, and is number one in Poland, Italy and Czech Republic. Stock was created through the integration of Stock and Polmos Lublin in 2007 and is backed by private equity company Oaktree Capital.

We were particularly pleased to grow profitability despite launching nearly twenty new products in the year and experiencing raw material volatility,” comments chief executive Chris Heath. “We also strengthened our management team further, invested in our manufacturing facilities and sales and marketing capabilities, and expanded our distribution network – all of which delivered this solid growth and reinforced our strong platform for future growth.”
