Healthy end market demand, solid operational performance, and a focus on reducing costs through Project 2019 contributed to our results. While global trade remains a source of uncertainty, we are optimistic about our prospects for the remainder of the year and are therefore increasing our Adjusted EBITDA growth guidance to a range of 11% to 13%.”
