RPM backs FY17 EPS view of $2.68-$2.78

"We continue to generate growth across most RPM businesses despite many market and economic challenges, and our operating units were able to leverage this modest sales growth into very strong EBIT growth. This leverage, combined with the quarter's tax benefit, generated very good improvement in net income and earnings per diluted share. While we experienced a lower tax rate in the quarter due to the adoption of the new accounting standard, we estimate that the full-year effective tax rate will remain in the 26% range as previously disclosed. As a result, we are maintaining our guidance for diluted earnings per share in fiscal 2017 of between $2.68 and $2.78," stated CEO Frank Sullivan.
