CEO Joseph Scalzo expressed his satisfaction with the results. He said in a statement, “Our results were solid across all forms, although the resurgence of bars was greater than our expectations. As we have previously stated, there is a high correlation of mobility to the consumption of our brands. As shopper traffic within brick and mortar retailers, particularly in the mass and convenience store channels improved, our business, particularly bars, improved as well. The diversification of our portfolio across forms, customers and retail channels demonstrates the advantages of our business model and multiple ways for us to win in the marketplace.”

Simply Good Foods also updated its financial outlook for fiscal 2021. It expects adjusted earnings in the range of $1.20 per share to $1.25 per share and revenue between $995 million and $1.01 billion for the full year.
