  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Armstrong World’s third-quarter adjusted earnings surged 29% y-o-y and came in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Armstrong World expects full-year constant currency sales to be in the $1.24 billion to $1.27 billion range, adjusted EBITDA is now expected to range from $315 million to $325 million and adjusted earnings per share in the range of $2.20 to $2.30. Weakness in international markets, specifically, in the Middle East, impact of Brexit and increased charges related to the separation of flooring business remain concerns. In the Pacific Rim, commercial office markets in China continued to experience challenging conditions while India markets were impacted by tight project financing. The underlying fundamentals for repair and remodel (R&R) activity remain uneven as demand is projected to be limited. This will likely result in choppy R&R activity. Moreover, emerging markets will be impacted by lower commodity prices." (11/22/2016)
