Analyst John Roberts commented, "Conf. call at 10am ET (888-297-9017 #95473986). IFF had “anticipated performance to be muted given the timing of planned investments, yet results came in [even] softer than expected due principally due to unfavourable mix & higher manufacturing costs”. We’re trimming our DecQ EPS estimate from $1.19 to $1.16, & 2017 EPS from $5.90 to $5.85."
