Molson Coors (TAP) Beats Q3 Earnings Estimates, Stock Down
Molson Coors Brewing Company TAP reported mixed third-quarter 2019 results, wherein the top line missed estimates but the bottom line beat the same. However, adjusted earnings and sales declined on a year-over-year basis. This marked a beat after two straight earnings miss and the fourth consecutive negative sales surprise. The top line was impacted by soft volume across all segments, owing to a challenging industry backdrop.
Further, the company announced a revitalization plan to achieve sustainable top-line growth by improving efficiency and unlocking resources to reinvest in business opportunities.
Shares of Molson Coors declined nearly 2.9% in the pre-market trading session. However, the Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) company’s shares have gained 1.3% in the past three months against the industry’s decline of 15.9%.
Molson Coors’ underlying adjusted earnings of $1.48 per share declined 19.6% year over year but beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $1.46. The decline was attributed to soft volume, inflation, higher underlying effective tax rate and cycling a favorable resolution of a vendor dispute in the United States. This was partly negated by positive global pricing and mix, cost savings, and reduced incentive compensation, restructuring charges and marketing expenses.
