  • Perrigo Company plc's (NYSE: PRGO) Q3 FY22 sales increased 5.5% Y/Y or 12.3%, excluding the impact of currency translation to $1.10 billion, almost in line with the consensus of $1.10 billion.
  • The growth was led by the acquisition of HRA, strategic pricing actions across Consumer Self-Care segments, and cough/cold-related product sales.
  • Adjusted EPS increased 24.4% to $0.56, up from $0.45 a year ago.
  • "Although revenue growth in the quarter was robust, it was below our estimates due to unfavorable currency translation, labor shortages affecting supply, and slower category growth rates," said President and CEO Murray S. Kessler.
