Checkpoint Systems, Inc. reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 29, 2013.

Third Quarter GAAP Results:

Net revenues from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2013 increased 3.3%, to $174.5 million from $168.8 million in the third quarter of 2012. During the quarter, gross profit margins were 40.3% compared with 40.7% in the 2012 third quarter. Foreign currency translation effects resulted in a $0.4 million or 0.2% increase in net revenues.

Selling, general, and administrative (SG&A) expenses in the third quarter of 2013 decreased $5.9 million or 10.4% to $51.0 million from $56.9 million in the third quarter of 2012. The third quarter of 2013 included approximately $10.0 million ($6.9 million in SG&A) of additional cost reductions from the global restructuring initiatives and continued tight expense control.

Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2013 included restructuring expenses ($0.9 million) and Shore to Shore acquisition costs associated with ongoing arbitration ($0.3 million) compared to the third quarter of 2012, which included restructuring expenses ($4.1 million) and acquisition costs ($17 thousand). Foreign currency translation effects resulted in a $0.7 million or 20.6% decrease in operating income.

Operating income in the third quarter of 2013 was $13.7 million, $10.4 million higher when compared with $3.3 million in the same period last year.

Foreign exchange transaction loss in the third quarter of 2013 was $1.1 million compared with foreign exchange gain of $0.3 million in the third quarter of 2012. The increased foreign exchange transaction loss is primarily attributed to U.S. Dollar and Euro fluctuations versus currencies in emerging markets where hedging is either impossible or impractical. Where hedging is possible and the cost is practical, the Company's practice is to hedge at least 75% of the net exposures.

Net earnings from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2013 were $0.18 per diluted share, $0.28 per share higher when compared with a net loss of $0.10 per diluted share in the same period last year.
