Ardagh Metal Packaging CEO Mr Oliver Graham said “We successfully delivered our Q2 guidance in the face of unprecedented inflationary and supply chain challenges and a headwind from FX. In the quarter we continued to commercialize new capacity, largely in line with budget and with minimal delays. The ramp-up of our investments and an outperformance in Brazil contributed to strong shipments growth in the period. We are actively pursuing a recovery of our exceptional energy inflation costs and are focused on a disciplined build-out of further capacity, suitably re phased so as to align it with demand.”Global beverage can shipments grew by 8% in the quarter, with growth of 11% in the Americas and 5% in Europe. Specialty can share increased, to 48% of shipments in the quarter, from 46% in the prior year quarter, reflecting our investment program.Adjusted EBITDA of USD 181 million for the quarter represented 10% growth on a constant currency basis, driven by a 36% advance in the Americas, where growth reflected higher shipments and a strong recovery of input cost inflation. In Europe, Adjusted EBITDA decreased by 20% on a constant currency basis, due to inflationary headwinds, in particular energy, which were partially offset by commercial recovery programs.New capacity continues to ramp up across our regions, including in Germany, the UK, United States and Brazil. Can production started during the quarter in Huron in Ohio, with further capacity planned through the remainder of the year.
