  • Including the discontinued operation, GAAP diluted EPS was $0.74 in the quarter compared to $0.70 in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Revenues were $86.6 million in the quarter, up 3% including a 4% unfavorable foreign currency translation effect, compared to the third quarter of 2011. Guidance was $80 to $82 million.
  • Cash flows from continuing operations were $13.2 million in the quarter, up 7% from the third quarter of 2011.

Management Commentary

“We had another excellent quarter and are on pace to achieve record adjusted diluted EPS for the full year 2012,” said Jonathan W. Painter, president and chief executive officer of Kadant. “GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations was $0.66 and well above our guidance of $0.49 to $0.51 due to higher revenues and a lower effective tax rate. We set a new record for the highest quarterly adjusted diluted EPS result achieved in our twenty-year history as a public company.
