International Paper (NYSE: IP) reported Q3 EPS of $0.91, $0.02 worse than the analyst estimate of $0.93. Revenue for the quarter came in at $5.3 billion versus the consensus estimate of $5.37 billion.

"I'm pleased with our strong cash generation this quarter despite an uneven global economy and rising input costs," said Mark Sutton, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to see stable to improved market demand across most of our businesses, particularly North American Industrial Packaging. We have begun to implement the NA containerboard and box price increases and we remain focused on a fourth quarter close of the Weyerhaeuser pulp business acquisition. These key efforts, along with others, will increase shareholder value and give us confidence in our continued ability to generate strong and sustainable cash from operations and free cash flow."
