Management Commentary

“In the third quarter, IFF benefited from our balanced business mix and continued focus on executing our three-pillar growth strategy,” said Doug Tough, Chairman and CEO of IFF. “We are pleased with our growth momentum on both the top and bottom lines, especially in light of a more challenging comparison to the third quarter of last year. This is the sixth consecutive quarter that our gross profit margin, adjusted operating profit margin and adjusted net income as a percent of sales have all increased versus the year-ago period.”
