“Valvoline continues to generate outstanding top-line results, reflecting ongoing strong demand for our products and services,” said Sam Mitchell, CEO. “Our performance was driven by ongoing share gains, price increases to recover cost inflation and continued strong operational execution by our team.

“Sales increased 23% in Retail Services driven by 13% same-store sales growth and a 7% increase in units. Profitability was impacted by the current inflationary environment, increasing labor and product costs. We have executed appropriate pricing actions which will improve profitability in Q3 and Q4.

“Global Products sales increased by an impressive 29%, highlighting strong volume growth of 9% and continued success in price pass-through of raw material cost increases. The volume growth we are seeing is broad-based and an indicator of continued share gains and our ability to meet customer demand despite supply chain challenges. Our unit margins continue to improve sequentially, and we are confident that we will recover cost increases with price pass-through – as we have done in prior periods of inflation.”
