Post Holdings (NYSE: POST) reported Q4 EPS of $0.61, $0.17 better than the analyst estimate of $0.44. Revenue for the quarter came in at $1.26 billion versus the consensus estimate of $1.31 billion.

For FY16, Adjusted EBITDA was $933.9 million, an increase of $276.5 million, or 42.1%, compared to the prior year.


Post management expects fiscal 2017 Adjusted EBITDA to range between $910-$950 million, with modest favorability to the second half of fiscal 2017. This outlook reflects a significant decline in the Michael Foods Group segment Adjusted EBITDA from fiscal 2016 to fiscal 2017, offset by phasing in of incremental cost reductions within the Post Consumer Brands segment, Active Nutrition growth and cycling approximately $50 million related to incremental investments in brand building and above target incentive compensation recorded in fiscal 2016.

Post management expects fiscal 2017 capital expenditures to range between $180-$200 million, including approximately $60-$70 million related to growth activities, of which approximately $25-$35 million is related to the previously announced cage-free housing conversion at the Bloomfield, Nebraska facility. Maintenance capital expenditures for fiscal 2017 are expected to range between $120-$140 million.
