“We had another outstanding quarter,” said Jonathan W. Painter, president and chief executive officer of Kadant. “GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations was $.80 and is the highest quarterly result achieved in our 19 years as a public company. Excluding the gains from the sale of a building and a benefit from discrete tax items, adjusted diluted EPS increased over 50 percent from last year’s third quarter to $.47. This exceeded our guidance of $.40 to $.42, largely due to higher than expected revenues, and included bad debt expense of $.03 for a customer bankruptcy which occurred during the quarter and was not reflected in our guidance.
