Shares of Avery Dennison Corp. dropped nearly 5 percent Wednesday after reporting mixed quarterly results.
The Glendale labeling and packaging manufacturer reported adjusted net income of $127 million ($1.48 a share) for the quarter ending March 31, down from $129 million in the same period a year ago. The company posted revenue of $1.74 billion, down 2 percent from the same period last year.
Zack’s analysts predicted earnings per share of $1.46 on revenue of $1.75 billion.
The company attributed the first quarter dip to pension settlement charges related to the closure of its U.S. pension plan.
“Our Q1 performance was solid, given a challenging start to the year, with adjusted earnings in line with our expectations,” said President and Chief Executive Mitch Butier in a statement. “In the Label and Graphic Materials segment, organic growth slowed, while profitability was solid. And, despite a modest organic sales decline, Industrial and Healthcare Materials delivered strong margin expansion.”
