Bemis sees FY2016 EPS of $2.65-$2.70, versus the consensus of $2.72.

“Our key financial metrics improved this quarter,” said William F. Austen, Bemis Company's President and Chief Executive Officer. “Adjusted EPS increased nearly 12 percent over the prior year. We increased operating margins and delivered our highest total company EBITDA since 2014. Cash from operations improved sequentially, in line with our plan.” Austen continued, “We still have room for improvement. In our U.S. business, we planned for volume growth but disappointed ourselves with flat unit volumes this quarter. In our Global business, we continue to work on improving operational efficiencies at our expanded Oshkosh healthcare packaging facility and on executing our restructuring program in Latin America.” Austen further commented, “I remain confident in the long-term health of our business and remain committed to creating long-term shareholder value.”
