"Of the 13 or so years we have been in operation, this was our highest month ever," said Scott LeBon, CEO of NABC, Inc., New Age Beverage's operating company. "I am so pleased because we delivered the result in the midst of our integration and creation of the new company with no loss of focus whatsoever. We have distributed huge brands like Vitamin Water, Monster and others via our Colorado distributor that historically really contributed. Now, we have a new portfolio and our own portfolio and they are doing great. Xing®, Aspen Pure®, and now Bucha® are all contributing and building momentum heading into the most important months of the year."

In revenue synergies the Company is expanding distribution of Búcha® into the historical XingTea® and New Age accounts, and XingTea® and the other brands into Búcha's key customers.
