KDP again delivered on its annual financial commitments in 2020, capped by a strong fourth quarter with exceptional growth in net sales that was driven by market share gains across our portfolio and accelerated household adoption of the Keurig system. During the year, we implemented robust protocols to keep our employees safe, enhanced our portfolio with innovative new products and strategic partnerships, invested in our supply chain for growth, delivered our corporate responsibility goals and supported our communities.
The company highlighted their performance in part to the addition of three million new households using the Keurig coffee system. As a result, the organisation chose to pay down their financial obligations by $1.1 billion, and retain a cash balance of $240m
