"Our third quarter results showed strong progress toward our 2015 strategic goals," said Jim Owens, H.B. Fuller president and chief executive officer. "We got our revenue growth moving in the right direction and managed our margins and discretionary spending to deliver our commitments for operating profit growth.
"At the same time we successfully completed major milestones in our European business integration project, keeping us on track to fully deliver the planned financial and strategic benefits from this investment. We have momentum for a strong fourth quarter and to complete another successful, transformational year as part of our current five year plan."
Adjusted Gross profit margin1 was up approximately 150 basis points compared to the prior year's result reflecting solid operational improvement as a result of the ongoing business integration project and a generally favorable raw material cost environment.
Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expense was down by over 3 percent, or 50 basis points as a percentage of net revenue versus the prior quarter and also down by 1 percent, or 70 basis points as a percentage of net revenue versus the prior year as the Company actively reduced discretionary spending.
