WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) - While reporting financial results for the first quarter on Wednesday, Brown-Forman Corp. (BFA, BFB) said it still anticipates mid-single digit growth in underlying net sales and operating income for the full-year 2022.

'While we are optimistic the operating environment will continue to improve, we are closely monitoring the potential volatility associated with the evolving pandemic and continued supply chain disruptions. Backed by the strength of our brands and our people, we are confident in our ability to manage our business for the long term,' said Lawson Whiting, President and CEO.
