07:32 EDTCAGConAgra reports Q3 adjusted EPS 62c, consensus 60c
Reports Q3 revenue $4.39B, consensus $4.4B. The company says Consumer Foods sales declined in line with expectations, and comparable operating profit was flat. Challenges for a few key brands are weighing on overall segment sales results. Strong productivity, lower marketing expense, and other cost reductions benefited segment profits. Gary Rodkin, ConAgra Foods’ CEO, said, “We are on track with our EPS projections for the second half of this fiscal year. As we have previously discussed, there are operating challenges that have impacted segment performance and overall EPS growth, but we are encouraged by some pockets of strength. This quarter we posted good sales and market share performances for some of our consumer brands, good international growth for our potato operations, and continued improvement in the operations and organization for our private brands. The synergies expected from the former Ralcorp businesses are coming in slightly ahead of plans, and we continue to make good progress on SG&A efficiency initiatives. We reaffirm our full year fiscal 2014 EPS guidance, and remain confident in our long-term strategy and outlook.”
