Prestige Brands named to Fortune's list of 100 fastest-growing companies

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. — Fortune has named Prestige Brands as one of its 100 fastest-growing companies, Prestige announced Tuesday. Listed as No. 60, Prestige represents the only manufacturer of brand name over-the-counter healthcare products on the list. 

“Our strategy for creating shareholder value has three prongs which work in tandem — invest in and grow our core over-the-counter healthcare brands, harness our financial profile and industry-leading free cash flow to pay down debt and build M&A capacity, and remain aggressive and disciplined in the M&A market,” stated Matthew Mannelly, CEO. “The successful execution of this strategy worked to create the results for which we are recognized on this important Fortune list.” 

The Fortune list measures companies by growth in revenue, profit and stock price over the past three years. Prestige’s strong financial performance included a 30% revenue growth, 30% adjusted EPS growth and 60% total return for the three-year period.
