Strong start for Dean Foods

This article was originally published in Foodnews

DEAN Foods has recorded a strong start to 2012, supported by tight cost control and a decline in the price of raw milk. The US company saw net income rise almost 50% to USD37.9 million in its first quarter, compared with USD25.3 million a year earlier, its best quarter in nearly two years. Revenue rose 5.4% to USD3.21 billion. “We believe this performance illustrates the building strengths of our business,” chief executive Gregg Engles told investors during a conference call. The company has increased its earnings forecast and predicts second-quarter results of 28-33 cents a share and full-year earnings of USD1.10 -1.20 a share, up from its previous forecast of 87-95 cents.
