KARAT PACKAGING INC. MANAGEMENT REPORT AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL POSITION AND OPERATING RESULTS (Form 10-K)

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations
should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and
related notes to the consolidated financial statements. This discussion and
analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and
uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated
in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors including,
but not limited to, those discussed in Part I, Item 1A. "Risk Factors." and
elsewhere in this Annual Report on Form 10-K. See "Forward Looking Statements"
above for further explanation.

Overview

We are a rapidly-growing specialty distributor and select manufacturer of
environmentally-friendly disposable foodservice products and related items. We
are a nimble supplier of a wide range of products for the foodservice industry,
including food and take out containers, bags, tableware, cups, lids, cutlery,
straws, specialty beverage ingredients, equipment, gloves and other products.
Our products are available in plastic, paper, biopolymer-based and other
compostable forms. Our Karat Earth® line provides environmentally friendly
options to our customers, who are increasingly focused on sustainability. We
offer customized solutions to our customers, including new product development,
design, printing and logistics services. While a majority of our revenue is
generated from the distribution of our vendors' products, we have select
manufacturing capabilities in the U.S., which allows us to provide customers
broad product choices and customized offerings with short lead times. Our goal
is to be the single-source provider to our customers for all of their disposable
foodservice products and related needs.

We operate an approximately 500,000 square foot distribution center located in
Rockwall, Texas, an approximately 300,000 square foot distribution center in
Chino, California, and an approximately 76,000 square foot distribution center
located in Kapolei, Hawaii. We have selected manufacturing capabilities in all
of these facilities. In addition, we operate four other distribution centers
located in Sumner, Washington, Summerville, South Carolina, Branchburg, New
Jersey and Kapolei, Hawaii. Our New Jersey location is an approximately 108,000
square foot facility that opened in July 2020 and was fully operational in June
2021. In October 2021, we moved into our new 63,000 square-foot facility in
South Carolina. Our distribution centers are strategically located in proximity
to major population centers, including the Los Angeles, Dallas, New York,
Seattle, Atlanta and Honolulu metro areas.

We manage and evaluate our business in a single reportable segment.

2021 Business Highlights and Trends

•We recorded revenues of $364.2 million during 2021, which represents an
increase of 23% compared to 2020, despite the decrease in net sales related to
personal protective equipment (PPE) products from the peak of $38.1 million for
the year ended December 31, 2020 to $2.7 million for the year ended December 31,
2021.

•We recorded a net profit of $22.4 million in 2021, representing a 35% increase over 2020, despite the challenges posed by inflation in input costs, supply chain disruption and rising labor costs.

• We completed our IPO on April 15, 2021and generated net proceeds of approximately $67.6 million.

•Acquired over 27,000 new customers, which consisted of customers through wholesale and direct-to-consumer e-commerce channels.

•We added a new manufacturing and distribution facility to Hawaii thanks to our acquisition of Pacific Cup Inc.

•We paid off all our existing debt and capital lease obligations, except for
debt obligations that remain outstanding from our consolidated variable interest
entity, Global Wells.

• We generated consolidated Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure defined below, of
$37.0 million for the year, an increase of 3% compared to 2020.

• We have invested $12.4 million in our logistics and manufacturing infrastructure to improve the efficiency of our operations and position the company for future growth.

Trends in our business

The following trends have contributed to the results of our operations, and we expect them to continue to affect our future results:

•There is a growing trend towards at home dining and mobility-oriented
e-commerce, food delivery and take-out dining. We believe this trend will have a
positive impact on our results of operations, as more of our customers will
require packaging and containers to meet the demands of their increased food
delivery and take-out dining consumers.

•Environmental concerns regarding disposable products broadly have resulted in a
number of significant changes that are specific to the food-service industry,
including regulations applicable to our customers. We believe this trend will
have a positive impact on our results of operations, as we expect there will be
an increased demand for eco-friendly and compostable single-use disposable
products.

•Changes in freight carrier costs related to the shipment of our products,
especially relating to overseas shipments. We believe this trend can have either
a positive or a negative impact on our results of operations, depending on
whether such freight costs increase or decrease.

•U.S. foreign trade policy continues to evolve, such as the imposition of
tariffs on a number of imported food-service disposable products, including
those imported from China and other countries. We believe this trend will have
either a positive or a negative impact on our results of operations, depending
on whether we are able to source our raw materials or manufactured products from
countries where tariffs have not been imposed by the current U.S.
administration.

•The cost of the raw materials used to manufacture our products, in particular
polyethylene terephthalate, or PET, plastic resin, will continue to fluctuate.
We believe this trend will have either a positive or a negative impact on our
results of operations, depending on whether PET plastic resin costs increase or
decrease.

COVID-19 Update

Information regarding COVID-19 update is contained in Note 18 - COVID-19 Update
in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part II, Item
8 of this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Critical accounting estimates

The preparation of our consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S.
generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates
and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and
disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the consolidated
financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during
the reporting periods. On an ongoing basis, management evaluates those
estimates. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on
various assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances,
the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying
values of assets and liabilities that are not readily available from other
sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different
assumptions or conditions.

Critical accounting estimates are those estimates made in accordance with
generally accepted accounting principles that involve a significant level of
estimation uncertainty and have had or are reasonably likely to have a material
impact on the financial condition or results of operations of the registrant. We
believe the following critical accounting estimates and policies have the most
significant impact on our consolidated financial statements:

Reserve inventory

The Company maintains reserves for excess and obsolete inventory considering
various factors including historic usage, expected demand, anticipated sales
price, and product obsolescence. While such losses have historically been within
our expectations and the provisions established, we cannot guarantee that the
future trend will be similar to what we have experienced in the past. As of
December 31, 2021 and 2020, we had an inventory reserve of $743,000 and
$675,000, respectively. A significant change in the demand or sales price could
result in additional reserve and materially affect our future financial results.

Allowance for doubtful accounts

The Company recognizes an allowance for bad debt on accounts receivable in an
amount equal to the estimated probable losses net of recoveries. The allowance
is based on an analysis of historical bad debt write-offs, current past due
customers in the aging as well as an assessment of specific identifiable
customer accounts considered at risk or
                                       28
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

uncollectible. While such losses have historically been within our expectations
and the provisions established, we cannot guarantee that we will continue to
experience the same credit loss rates we have in the past. As of both
December 31, 2021 and 2020, we had an allowance for doubtful accounts of
$250,000. A significant change in the liquidity or financial position of our
customers could cause unfavorable trends in receivable collections and
additional allowances may be required. These additional allowances could
materially affect our future financial results.

Stock-based compensation

Stock-based compensation expense related to employee stock options is accounted
for in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation - Stock Compensation. This standard
requires the Company to record compensation expense equal to the fair value of
awards granted to employees and non-employees. The fair value of restricted
stock unit awards is determined based on the closing price of our common stock
on the trading day immediately prior to the grant date. The fair value of stock
options is estimated on the grant-date using the Black-Scholes option pricing
model. Key input assumptions used in the Black-Scholes option pricing model to
estimate the grant date fair value of stock options include the fair value of
the Company's common stock, the expected option term, the expected volatility of
the Company's stock over the option's expected term, the risk-free interest
rate, and the Company's expected annual dividend yield.

The risk-free interest rate assumption for options granted under the Plan, as
defined in Note 12 - Stock Based Compensation in the Notes to the Consolidated
Financial Statements included in Part II, Item 8 of this Annual Report on Form
10-K, is based upon observed interest rates on the United States government
securities appropriate for the expected term of the stock options.

The expected term of employee stock options under the Plan represents the
weighted-average period that the stock options are expected to remain
outstanding. The expected term of options granted is calculated based on the
"simplified method," which estimates the expected term based on the average of
the vesting period and contractual term of the stock option. Our expected term
of stock options is 6.25 years.

We determine the expected volatility assumption using the frequency of daily
historical prices of comparable public company's common stock for a period equal
to the expected term of the options.

The dividend yield assumption for options granted under the plan is based on the Company’s history and expectations for dividend payments.

We review the underlying assumptions related to stock-based compensation at
least annually or more frequently if we believe triggering events exist. If
facts and circumstances change and we employ different assumptions in future
periods, the compensation expense recorded may differ materially from the amount
recorded in the current period. Stock-based compensation expense for the years
ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 was $2,026,000 and $0, respectively.

Net sales

Net sales were $364.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2021 compared to
$295.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, an increase of $68.7
million, or 23.3%. The increase in net sales was primarily driven by an increase
of $55.2 million in net sales to our existing customers as we continue to grow
wallet share with existing customers and an incremental net sales of
$13.6 million from over 27,000 new customers in 2021. Out of the total net sales
increase of $68.7
                                       29
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

million compared to 2020, approximately $32.9 million was attributable to price
increases due to the pass through of inflation, $12.6 million was incremental
sales from new SKUs, $15.0 million was primarily associated with the sales
volume increase and $8.2 million represented an increase in logistic services
and shipping revenue. Net sales related to PPE products declined from the peak
of $38.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 to $2.7 million for the
year ended December 31, 2021.

Cost of Goods Sold

Cost of goods sold increased by $50.0 million, or 24.2% to $256.4 million for
the year ended December 31, 2021 compared to $206.4 million for the year ended
December 31, 2020. The increase in cost of goods sold was primarily due to an
increase of $30.6 million in product costs driven by higher volumes and cost
inflation and an increase of $24.1 million in freight and duty costs to acquire
inventory from overseas primarily due to elevated ocean freight rates. These
unfavorable factors were partially offset by efficiencies and productivity
improvements realized.

Gross profit

Gross profit increased $18.7 million, or 21.0%, to $107.8 million for the year
ended December 31, 2021 compared to $89.1 million for the year ended
December 31, 2020. Gross margin was 29.6% for the year ended December 31, 2021
compared to 30.2% for the year ended December 31, 2020, a decrease of 0.6%.
Freight and duty costs as a percentage of net sales increased from 6.8% in 2020
to 12.1% in 2021 primarily due to elevated ocean freight rates. This unfavorable
impact on the gross margin was partially offset by higher gross profit margins
driven by our direct-to-consumer sales through our online channel and several
price increases that the Company implemented in 2021 to pass through the
increased product costs.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2021 were $84.7 million
compared to $61.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, an increase of
$23.3 million, or 37.9%. This was primarily driven by the following increases:
(1) $12.0 million in shipping and transportation costs due to higher volume of
products transferred and shipped to our customers combined with higher fuel
costs, (2) $5.1 million in payroll-related costs due to workforce expansion, (3)
$2.0 million in stock-based compensation expense, (4) $1.2 million in on-line
marketing expense, and (5) $1.1 million in professional services fees.

Operating result

Operating income for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $23.1 million compared
to $27.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, a decrease of $4.6
million, or 16.4%. The decrease was due to an increase in gross profit of $18.7
million offset by an increase in operating expenses of $23.3 million.

Other income (expenses)

Other income for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $4.4 million, compared to
an other expense of $5.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, an
improvement of $10.2 million, or 176.0%. The improvement was driven by the gain
on the PPP loan debt forgiveness of $5.0 million received in 2021 and a decrease
in net interest expense of $4.1 million primarily due to the payoff of certain
borrowings and the change in the fair value of the interest rate swap(s), which
resulted in interest income of $1.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2021
and interest expense of $1.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Net revenue

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2021 was $22.4 million compared to
$16.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, an increase of $5.8 million,
or 34.6%. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in other income of
$10.2 million partially offset by a decrease in operating income of
$4.6 million, as discussed above. Provision for income taxes was $5.1 million
and $5.3 million for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.
The Company's effective tax rate for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020
was 18.5% and 24.0% respectively. The decrease in the effective tax rate was
primarily driven by the impact from the PPP loan debt forgiveness of
$5.0 million included in the effective tax rate for the year ended December 31,
2021 that was not present for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

We use certain non-GAAP financial measures to assess our financial and operating
performance that are not defined by, or calculated in accordance with GAAP. A
non-GAAP financial measure is defined as a numerical measure of a company's
financial performance that (i) excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments
that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the comparable
measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the Consolidated
Statements of Income; or (ii) includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments
that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the comparable
measure so calculated and presented.

Our key non-GAAP financial measures are listed below and reflect how we evaluate our operating results.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin

Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure equal to net income excluding (i)
interest expense, (ii) provision for income taxes, (iii) depreciation and
amortization, (iv) IPO related expenses, (v) gain on forgiveness of debt, and
(vi) stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by
dividing Adjusted EBITDA by revenue.

We present Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin as supplemental measures
of our financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin assist
management in assessing our core operating performance. We also believe these
measures provide investors with useful perspective on underlying business
results and trends and facilitate a comparison of our performance from period to
period.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin should not be considered in isolation
or as alternatives to net income or cash flows from operating activities and net
income margin or other measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Also,
Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are not necessarily comparable to
similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Below is a reconciliation of Net Earnings to Adjusted EBITDA and Net Earnings Margin to Adjusted EBITDA Margin.

                                                                               Year Ended December 31,

Cash and capital resources

Sources and uses of funds

Our primary sources of liquidity is cash provided by operations, borrowings
under our line of credit and promissory notes, and during the year ended
December 31, 2021, proceeds of our IPO offering totaling $67.6 million. We have
generated positive cash flow from operations for both of the years ended
December 31, 2021 and 2020. As described in Note 6 - Line of Credit, pursuant to
the terms of the Business Loan Agreement, dated February 23, 2018, between
Lollicup, as borrower, and Hanmi Bank, as lender (as amended, the "Loan
Agreement"), we have a line of credit with a
                                       31
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

maximum borrowing capacity of $40.0 million (the "Line of Credit"). The Line of
Credit also includes a standby letter of credit sublimit. The loan was secured
by the our assets and guaranteed by our stockholders. We are not required to pay
a commitment (unused) fee on the undrawn portion of the Line of Credit and
interest is payable monthly.

On July 9, 2020, we amended the Line of Credit to extend the maturity date to
May 23, 2022. On October 6, 2021, we amended the Loan Agreement again. Prior to
October 6, 2021, interest accrued at an annual rate of prime less 0.25% with a
minimum floor of 3.75%, and the amount that could be borrowed was subject to a
borrowing base that was calculated as a percentage of the accounts receivable
and inventory balances measured monthly. Additionally, the Company was required
to comply with certain financial covenants, including a minimum current ratio,
minimum tangible net worth, minimum debt service coverage ratio, and minimum
debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization
("EBITDA") ratio.

The amendment on October 6, 2021, among other things, (1) extended the maturity
date to October 6, 2023, (2) revised the interest on any line of credit
borrowings to an annual rate of prime less 0.25%, with a minimum floor of 3.25%,
(3) removed the requirement for the maximum amount of borrowings to be subject
to a borrowing base requirement that was calculated as a percentage of accounts
receivable and inventory balances, (4) removed the minimum tangible net worth
and minimum debt service coverage ratio from the financial covenant requirement,
and (5) added a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio in the financial covenant
requirement.

Additionally, as described in Note 8 - Long-term Debt, as of December 31, 2021,
we have a $21,580,000 term loan that matures in May 2029 (the "2029 Term Loan")
and a $23,000,000 term loan that matures September 30, 2026 (the "2026 Term
Loan"). The 2029 Term Loan provides for an annual interest at prime rate less
0.25% and principal payments ranging from $24,000 to $40,000 along with interest
are due monthly throughout the term of the loan, with the remaining principal
balance due at maturity. The loan is collateralized by substantially all of our
and Global Well's assets and is guaranteed by us and our stockholders. The 2026
Term Loan had an initial balance of $16,115,000 and an option to request for
additional advances up to a maximum of $6,885,000 through September 2022, which
we exercised in February 2022. Interest accrues at a fixed rate of 3.5%.
Principal and interest payments of $116,000 are due monthly throughout the term
of the loan, with the remaining principal balance due at maturity. The loan is
collateralized by substantially all of Global Wells' assets and is guaranteed by
Global Wells and one of our stockholders. In accordance with the loan agreement,
Global Wells is required to comply with certain financial covenants, including a
minimum debt service coverage ratio.

As of December 31, 2021, we were in compliance with the financial covenants
under all of our loan agreements, and do not expect material uncertainties in
our continued ability to be in compliance with all financial covenants through
the remaining term of all of our loan agreements. As of December 31, 2021, we
had no balance outstanding on our Line of Credit, $20.8 million in outstanding
balance under the 2029 Term Loan, and $15.9 million in outstanding balance under
the 2026 Term Loan.

We also have certain contractual obligations, such as operating lease
obligations and purchase obligations. At December 31, 2021, we had operating
leases, primarily for manufacturing and distribution facilities, and purchase
obligations primarily for machinery and equipment and constructions in certain
of our facilities, expiring at various dates through 2024. As described further
in Note 14 - Commitments and Contingencies in the Notes to Consolidated
Financial Statements included in Part II, Item 8 of this Annual Report on Form
10-K, we had a total of $10.3 million of minimum operating lease obligations.
These minimum lease payments range from approximately $0.4 million to $3.1
million on an annual basis over the next five years. At December 31, 2021, we
had purchase obligations of $10.9 million outstanding, including $8.2 million
and $1.8 million and $0.9 million expiring in 2022, 2023 and 2024, respectively.
Such purchase obligations are primarily related to the purchase of machinery and
equipment, as we continue to invest in our manufacturing and distribution
capabilities. Other than these contractual obligations, our off-balance sheet
arrangements primarily consists of letters of credits issued under our Line of
Credit. As of December 31, 2021, no letters of credits were outstanding under
our Line of Credit.

Our ongoing operations and growth strategy may require us to continue to make
investments in our logistics and manufacturing infrastructure and our e-commerce
platform. In addition, we may consider making strategic acquisitions and
investments, which could require significant liquidity. The COVID-19 pandemic
created significant uncertainty in the global economy and capital markets for a
large part of 2021, and there could be lingering adverse effects into 2022 and
beyond. We currently believe that our cash on hand, ongoing cash flows from our
operations and funding available under our borrowings will be adequate to meet
our working capital needs, service our debt, make lease payments, and fund for
capital expenditures to further enhance our manufacturing and logistics
infrastructure and our e-commerce platform for at least the next 12 months.
                                       32
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beyond the next 12 months, if we require additional capital resources to grow
our business, either organically or through acquisition, we may seek to sell
additional equity securities, increase use of our Line of Credit, and raise
additional debt. The sale of additional equity securities or certain forms of
debt financing could result in additional dilution to our stockholders. We may
not be able to obtain financing arrangements in amounts or on terms acceptable
to us in the future. In the event we are unable to obtain additional financing
when needed, we may be compelled to delay or curtail our plans to develop our
business, which could have a material adverse effect on our operations, market
position and competitiveness. Notwithstanding the potential liquidity challenges
described above, we expect to meet our long-term liquidity needs with cash flows
from operations and financing arrangements.

increase in working capital of $35.5 million, or 96.8%. The improvement in
working capital from December 31, 2020 was driven by (1) a decrease of $10.2
million in the current portion of long-term debt, as we paid down certain term
loans with proceeds from our IPO, (2) a decrease in related party payable of
$3.0 million primarily due to the timing of payments, (3) an increase of
$8.9 million in accounts receivable primarily resulting from the year-over-year
sales growth, (4) an increase of $9.5 million in inventory as a result of higher
sales volume, and (5) an increase of $6.0 million in cash and cash equivalents.
