Net sales rose 6.6% to $640 million versus the Street estimate of $633.43.

“Mallinckrodt performed well in the third quarter driven by strong customer demand for our hospital products and effective expense management. This tight expense control also helped us support increased R&D investments in our innovative pipeline,” CEO Mark Trudeau said.

SG&A expenses were $164.0 million or 25.6% of net sales, as compared to $186.3 million, or 31% a year ago.
