Revenue of $104.3 million, up 192% from $35.7 million in Q4 2020

Domestic revenue increased 238% to $95.9 million, up from $28.4 million in Q4 2020

International revenue increased 15% to $8.3 million, from $7.3 million in Q4 2020

BOCA RATON, Fla., March 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Celsius Holdings, Inc., (Nasdaq: CELH), maker of the leading global fitness drink, CELSIUS®, today reported preliminary and unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021. Management will host a conference call today at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss the results with the investment community.

A PDF containing our fourth quarter and full year preliminary and unaudited 2021 results and full financial tables is available at:
https://www.celsiusholdingsinc.com/Q4_2021

Although the Company has dedicated significant resources to the completion of finalizing its audited consolidated financial statements and related disclosures for inclusion in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and the required assessment of its internal controls over financial reporting as required by Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Company has encountered staffing limitations, unanticipated delays and identified material errors in previous filings as further described below. As a result, the Company has filed for the fifteen (15) day extension period provided under Rule 12b-25 and anticipates filing its Form 10-K including its audited financials prior to the expiration of the extension period. Accordingly, the fourth quarter and full year 2021 results set forth in the linked PDF are preliminary, unaudited and subject to change and adjustment.

In addition, as more fully described in the linked PDF, in connection with the preparation of its 2021, the Company determined that the calculation and expense of non-cash share-based compensation, related to grants of stock options and restricted stock units awarded to certain former employees and retired directors were materially understated for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2021 and three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2021 and did not comply with U.S. GAAP. In order to correct previously reported non-cash share-based compensation during these periods, the Company is recognizing additional non-cash share-based compensation expense of approximately $3,180,000 for the three month period ended June 30, 2021 and approximately $12,116,000 for the three month period ended September 30, 2021. The recognition of additional non-cash share-based compensation expense does not impact the Company's cash, revenue, other aspects of its operations or its business fundamentals.

The Company's management has concluded, however, that as a result of the above identified errors, a material weakness exists in the Company's internal controls over financial reporting related to the misapplication of U.S. GAAP in the Company's evaluation of modifications to share based payment arrangements and that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December 31, 2021. The Company has taken remedial actions in this regard.

To participate in the conference call, please call one of the following telephone numbers at least 10 minutes before the start of the call:

US: 877-709-8150
International: 201-689-8354
An audio replay of the call will be available on the Company's website at:
