Packaged Foods company Conagra Brands Inc. (NYSE: CAG) on Thursday said its fourth-quarter profit increased supported by a 6% revenue growth. Earnings came in above the consensus forecast while sales missed.
At $2.91 billion, fourth-quarter net sales were up 6% year-over-year. But the top line performance fell short of expectations. Organic sales benefited from an improvement in price/mix, aided by the company’s inflation-driven pricing actions that were reflected in the marketplace throughout the quarter and favorable brand mix.
Fourth-quarter net income, adjusted for special items, moved up to $0.65 per share from $0.54 per share in the same period of last year and topped expectations. Reported profit, meanwhile, declined to $158.9 million or $0.33 per share in the most recent quarter from $309.5 million or $0.64 per share in the fourth quarter of 2022.
