Monday, 5 Nov 2012 07:00am EST 

Church & Dwight Co Inc announced that as a result of strong third quarter performance, it expects fiscal 2012 earnings per share (EPS) including Avid to be $2.43, compared to previous guidance of $2.39 to $2.41. With regard to the fourth quarter of 2012, it expects EPS of approximately $0.55 reflecting increased marketing spend in the fourth quarter. The current outlook does not include any potential EPS impact as a result of Hurricane Sandy. The Company expects EPS in fiscal 2013 to be in the range of $2.74 to $2.79, an increase of approximately 13%-15%, driven by 9% to 10% earnings growth from existing business and accretion from the Avid acquisition. Prior fiscal 2013 guidance was $2.73 to $2.78. The Company expects to deliver the 13%-15% EPS growth while increasing the marketing investment behind the newly-acquired gummy vitamin products and 8 Power Brands. According to I/B/E/S Estimates, analysts on an average are expecting the Company to report EPS of $2.41 for fiscal 2012; EPS of $0.61 for the fourth quarter of 2012; EPS of $2.77 for fiscal 2013.
