Maxim Group analysts commented, "Yesterday after the market close, FIZZ reported F3Q19 (Jan) revenue and EBITDA below both our estimates and consensus. LaCroix all-channel sales have been flat-to-down since October, which we believe is due primarily to public scrutiny of its ingredients. We view the $2.90 per share special dividend paid on 1/29/19 as a sub-optimal use of capital, given the opportunity cost of not investing in LaCroix." (3/8/2019) 2.
