Alliance One International (AOI) announced results for the fiscal year that ended March 31, 2018.

Total sales and other operating revenues increased 7.7 percent to $1.85 billion as a result of a 7.5 percent increase in average sales price due to favorable product mix mainly in South America and North America.

Gross profit increased 13.5 percent to $246.2 million and gross profit as a percentage of sales improved to 13.3 percent from 12.7 percent.

Operating income increased 30.7 percent to $110.6 million when compared to the prior year.

Net income attributable to AOI was $52.4 million, which included a net tax benefit of $58.8 million with $59.4 million associated with estimated discrete net tax benefits related to the new U.S. tax law enacted in December.

Adjusted EBITDA improved 15.4 percent to $168.5 million.
