Transcontinental Inc. Announces Unaudited Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended July 31, 2015

Transcontinental Inc. announced unaudited earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended July 31, 2015. Revenues for the third quarter of 2015 went from $483.0 million to $481.9 million. The increase in volume in the packaging division, the printing contracts signed in 2014 and the appreciation of the US dollar against the Canadian dollar had a favorable impact on revenues. Adjusted operating earnings before depreciation and amortization grew 14.9%. Adjusted net earnings applicable to participating shares increased 30.5%. Adjusted operating earnings went from $58.0 million to $71.6 million in the third quarter of 2015, an increase of 23.4%. This performance is attributable to the increase in volume in the packaging division, the optimization of the cost structure across the Corporation, the favorable impact of the exchange rate and the impact of the decrease in the stock price on the stock-based compensation. Adjusted net earnings applicable to participating shares grew 30.5%, from $37.4 million, or $0.48 per share, to $48.8 million, or $0.62 per share. This performance is attributable to an increase in adjusted operating earnings before depreciation and amortization and a decrease in net financial expenses. Net earnings applicable to participating shares decreased 2.0%, from $44.2 million, or $0.56 per share, to $43.3 million, or $0.55 per share. This slight decrease results mainly from a favorable adjustment to deferred income tax assets in 2014, partly offset by the improvement in operating earnings. The company generated $101 million of cash flow from continuing operations. The company invested $21 million in CapEx, including intangibles. For the first nine months of 2015, TC Transcontinental's revenues increased 1.4%, from $1,442.2 million to $1,462.1 million. This increase stems primarily from the contribution of acquisitions, more specifically the acquisition of Capri Packaging and the Quebec weekly newspapers (net of disposals and closures). This increase in Revenue was however mitigated mainly by the impact of the transformation of the advertising market on the results of certain of the Corporation's niches, in particular on the weekly newspapers' advertising revenues. Furthermore, the loss of certain customers early in the fiscal year affected the flyer printing operations. Adjusted operating earnings went from $160.8 million to $188.9 million, an increase of 17.5%. This increase is attributable to the contribution from acquisitions, disposals and closures, the optimization of the cost structure across the Corporation and the favorable impact of the exchange rate. It was however mitigated by the above-mentioned factors and the increase in stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted net earnings applicable to participating shares grew 24.7%, from $101.1 million, or $1.30 per share, to $126.1 million, or $1.61 per share. Net earnings attributable to participating shares increased from $96.1 million, or $1.23 per share, to $162.4 million, or $2.08 per share. This increase results mainly from the gain on the sale of consumer magazines produced in Montreal and Toronto, the reversal of the provision related to multi-employer pension plans and the increase in operating earnings. CapEx was around $75 million, including intangibles.
