Kyle Joseph

part framework you Congratulations second moving CAD and quarter of it taking tax But it third CAD my calculator, you from from sounds thanks like And on we the just about can really impacted -- it in another quarter. be to won't know good modeling get could question. quarter. quarter just for third the talked for was the essentially you so kind I by perspective benefit and quantify could quarter the like sounds impact of rate the the Ryan, a a kind of the in then? run

Ryan Faulkingham

Yes, sure. Sure.

third but a X by then, about cash had of rough not the So CAD reverse roughly taxes full CAD numbers. which were therefore in And million. second higher, amount, in rough, the $X.X I'll to we and give But you negatively the quarter kind that affects of million. quarter, benefit our

Velocity that swing, basis, it massively So created when helpful? of income. new a given outperformed the basis, because on cash full a its that And year taxes launch on too. large that year-to-date gap appropriate, will was Is has think the budget. taxable It are it the at Velocity about you

Kyle Joseph

my it's That's next. a Exactly need. to good what perfect. yes, I And segue

this have your taken business. at Velocity point, you charge on about talked impairment last on So remarks in I year Outdoor, the you an think

massively So into your their point, budget. outperforming it's

The driven. us really is sustainability there give some is management the COVID the that guys what's changes recovery made. you that recovery. outlook So of And for of the

Ryan Faulkingham


And other has of is quickly Kyle, management at not The So our dismiss it performing has. improvement Velocity amount brought here at up to subsidiaries that essential happen when really think don't clearly to that It of X.XX, lot. want in at we by ramps the as Liberty. the changes team that I level. our challenges demand performance that only as an but had. a we've The is challenges I were the exceptional team

overtime You're talking people. capital, your stressing and a new chain about lot trying to hire bring of stressing human your hours onboard supply and

of this been a through. adept management are So has lot managing if there team at challenges really

I first know, say foremost, would seat, and would the well. them we in without So have performed I as nearly don't

just happening sport. people come the large that in of increase a that lot backdrop the there's of amount have and back is, outdoor Now, is a into activity the

period know, don't it's is not, And is were has sustainable no crystal that would I so comparing results I we that I sustainable? think very all think we a I also say a mean, are where more ball. to more we one -- it think than depressed.

incredible as we together, retail merged and so, partners that them a of And had created to disruption XXXX. our for two XXXX us over mostly supplier over

issue. So a big that was

consumer and under on now a gaining with I top substantial. to to pickup which So And start we last behind efforts in largely to would of type to there. a real that, direct launch this traction, would be of of very say us margin see pretty so had that have that time are able to was build effort leadership. a strong prior us, with we practice, expected is really those perfect has sort for some

customers of changes, kind of negatively, of time having are result, a market yes, business XXXX. end end more of up say of merging things may up. that that culmination the is been being beyond performing our some because demand one I it's distorting would longer So have those, that I think things in just together, demand, is be of driving it’d lot no that But headwind of whether our a

sustainable had think more the this in is forward inventory and going Pat retail now. our fourth partners as quarter mentioned, is So very low right we in channel

fourth be quarter into anything, products sales of that lost as levels could and fact, don't it bodes may performance capturing shelves. us have I back into In also because just normal XXXX our on bringing we kind to inventory just now. we the sales, right up But for that be adequate look our think if missing levels some and we causing well

Kyle Joseph

one, this acquisitions, be to whether gauge for Got just then, two it. last of appetite me add-on, there parts to platform question. your And helpful. one future trying very really or will for sort That's

are markets platform activity, to sponsor when seems like around two able in First, in fantastic acquisitions complete like margin BOA And of and but area. from it were is X.Xx terms everything, then, things follow consideration balance pro terms it sounds it's competition, really disrupted sheet, normalizing. think today your closing, also between of guys leverage are, we forma, I the we of you in track

your sponsor a sheet, So in of of also what be seems balance terms normalizing there. to guess in first out own market I terms but

Your acquisitions here. for appetite from

Elias Sabo

to we Yea. to has capacity, I'll speak Ryan sheet, going with to speak let still that. but feel let and I'm balance our very comfortable him which

second your question, were guys really sponsor disrupted. able and address to were and and which have BOA markets is sheet what we the know seeing, market on most we and would when me as strength we're were that say and move capital Marucci you the activity access, balance the to Let close I was quick and

I it now. right you're think Kyle, looking depends, where

So segments and them to certain really M&A real depressed. of back of are And back are that market there's areas are coming there the with continue that strength. stay certain then, coming

on economy were where think And able think differentiated. impacted you how or the how how are so, depends are, and you're I capital? results big you attract whether it on your depends not I to it in

the and yes. is I active is, that would there are that say holistic So of as factors somewhat result become statement starting advantage right qualitative But there's equity answer a lot out that, private of of our now. dissipating, to a your competitive more

XXX year, to we million are. feel this far of so whatever so what capital we've And good, roughly achieved XXX we work our goals put million

acquisitions we seeing we overly to have of doesn't deploy accretive in right interesting I ways in platforms seem new platforms, say think the would if some nine trading able find now, good us that I capital. what for were market to add-on be terms would we're the to value enhancing now, right to us.

would So, And as but was Larry again, quickly. quite the a say as is pipeline when can back go in with we year, what question, as don't asked said, his I I'll the opportunities, as to pandemic high first change pretty uncertainty. that is things it have quality robust creating what I high earlier

that we may when going to two stay globally what last vaccine therapeutics over all to are just some economy weeks close theme people close, dining heard it down. regain so closed. heard change we felt and or quickly, were have really could to economies when had already a was did the start European And close indoor starting the was Chicago like today, open or actually

Elias Sabo

now and are a mind a Yes. think I target call our where for a in kind X.X are good we closer number probably to peak we we in respect cycle I I is. a feel good that think, mentioned cycle, it's at right mid-cycle all number of a what the we when leverage target leverage, how being try are given our with played in keep And earnings, we where to would out. to Robert, leverage then that's And as us. If trough we

a higher think leverage later our were And have that So on we we more in and point one maybe right go to in have slightly naturally, take a I propensity Xx now been cycle. at just midpoint, to would history. above we up

overly pretty made the Ryan around start will we to great get as feel growth, aren't earnings containment suggest our that I and happen BOA BOA the talked growth to you year this assuming that our and that would been show and to growing pandemic. growing. comfortable solid of we we businesses our deleverage. transaction, about, we the And is the there's Now, didn't pandemic, to what's we more additive acquired presentation profile. in nothing in quickly denominator point Marucci have earlier, predict tell going we XXXX again, is moved can't But explained to that the a with But, which some

I the high I And now mid a we are so. is going into we and Now, before. not in our pandemic never think we're if guided and through don't we distribution. something we're go kind to That's be we're comfortable is the the for experienced now what covering that were yet, fact I in given fact seeing we've that three, EBITDA creating miraculous in would we've fours? and that think a growth But, of zone us. the think, the

be there, me bit little more to it's saw lead couple factors for because hit fail to even though bring and in of you everything mean, up businesses. for capital, confident being opportunities those right size I I And a but cycle, it about a more we on the matter to maybe we us the of our goes a we deleverage, so the all meaningful to to are sale, these, of rank extent a for look and out is able were And of it's add-ons kind facilitate we think think them. one, where is, leverage to and available hard I order now, in are truth price. to
