  • "The heavy lifting of the seven plant closures in the third quarter is now behind us. However, residual transitory costs associated with our plant consolidation efforts, retailers continued investment in private label and higher than expected transportation-related inflation leads us to lower our guidance. We now anticipate an adjusted net loss for the full year in the range of $0.10 to $0.30. Our focused and disciplined approach to our enterprise-wide cost productivity plan enabled us to reduce our capital expenditure guidance to between $100 and $120 million. Our full year cash flow guidance is reduced to between $30 and $50 million."
