The increase in sales is due to the introduction of new products and new product categories, selective price increases, and the contribution from the acquisition of three estate wineries completed in early October 2017. EBITDA increase in fiscal 2018 was due to the increase in sales across the Company's established distribution network and the improved gross margin, partially offset by the increase in selling and administrative expenses and the reduction in margin related to the three new wineries due to the inventory fair value adjustment charged to cost of sales. For the year ended March 31, 2018, the company generated cash from operating activities, after changes in non- cash working capital items, of $21.7 million compared to $25.6 million in the prior year.
