- Q3 diluted EPS was $0.51; Adjusted EPS(1) was $0.78
The Kraft Heinz Company (NASDAQ: KHC) (“Kraft Heinz” or the “Company”) today reported third quarter 2018 financial results that reflected solid gains from Organic Net Sales growth and lower taxes versus the prior year period that were offset by investments in strategic capabilities, as well as higher overhead and input costs.
“We believe that our Q3 results are strong evidence that our commercial investments are working, with solid top line performance in the quarter,” said Kraft Heinz CEO Bernardo Hees. “This reflects our strong pipeline of marketing, new product and whitespace initiatives now in the marketplace, backed by investments in capabilities we have been making for brand and category advantage. While a number of one-off factors - as well as our desire to insure customer service - held back profit in the quarter, we remain confident that we are well-positioned to deliver sustainable, profitable growth going forward.”
