Tupperware Profits Rise in Third Quarter on Lower Revenue; Beats Expectations (TUP)

Personal and household goods producer Tupperware Brands Corporation (TUP) released its third quarter financial report on Wednesday that showed an increase in profits, but a decline in revenue; both beat Wall Street estimates.

TUP revenue for the third quarter dropped -1.3% to $594.4 million from $602.6 million in the year ago period.

Wall Street analysts polled by Thomas Reuters expected Tupperware to have third quarter adjusted earnings per share of 90 cents on revenues of $582.28 million.

Looking forward, TUP sees 2012 earnings per share to be in the range of $4.94 to $4.99. The Wall Street consensus is that Tupperware will earn $4.89 per share in 2012.

Tupperware shares were flat in premarket trading on Wednesday.
