16:42 EDTGEFGreif lowers FY14 EPS view to $1.98-$2.08 from $2.48-$2.80, consensus $2.81
The slow motion global economic recovery is anticipated to continue during the remainder of fiscal FY14, resulting in moderate sales volume improvement and slightly higher raw material costs in certain regions. The Rigid Industrial Packaging segment is anticipated to benefit from moderate volume growth, especially in Europe, and Greif Business System cost savings. In addition to the announced closure of our facility in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, additional specific actions will be implemented in the Flexible Products segment during the remainder of 2014 as this business is repositioned for sustainable growth and profitability. During the third quarter, the Company sold a business in the Rigid Industrial Packaging & Service segment and will continue to pursue the sale of select non-core assets and plans to accelerate restructuring actions. Based on these factors, including anticipated gains from the sale of select non-core assets, FY14 Class A EPS guidance is $1.98-$2.08. This guidance excludes timberland gains of approximately $16.9M or 20c per Class A share and potential future impairment charges.

The company has incurred and anticipates higher SG&A expenses for the remainder of the fiscal year and slightly lower than expected results from operations.
