  • BODYARMOR will continue to be distributed by the U.S. Coca-Cola bottling system.

  • As part of the agreement, Coca-Cola and Repole will also collaborate on the company's still beverages portfolio, including marketing, packaging, and innovation strategies across multiple brands.

  • Coca-Cola funded the acquisition through cash-on-hand. It held .9 billion in cash and equivalents as of October 1, 2021.
