Revenues were driven by an 8.8% increase in the average selling price primarily due to inflation, with flat volume in the current period. This increase was partially offset by a decline of $1.1 million as a result of the weakening of the exchange rates of various currencies versus the USD as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year.

Gross profit for the Successor was $54.3 million, or 12.2%, and $9.6 million, or 10.2%, for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016, respectively, and was $38.8 million, or 13.0%, for the Predecessor period from April 1, 2016 through June 8, 2016. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to the increase in average selling price as discussed.

Gross profit in the current period includes $1.2 million related to the inventory step up as a result of the Ultra Chem acquisition, whereas, the same period in the prior year includes $3.0 million related to half of the inventory step up associated with the Business Combination.

The increase in revenue was driven by a 3.5% increase in average selling price during the current period throughout the regions, as well as a 2.4% increase in volume driven primarily by regional strength in EMEA and Asia. These increases were partially offset by a decline of approximately $5.8 million as a result of the weakening of the exchange rates of various currencies versus the USD as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year.
