Hostess Brands lowers FY18 EPS view to 52c-58c from $65c-70c, consensus 68c

Due to expected headwinds in the second half of 2018 from reduced promotional support from one of its largest retail partners and inflationary pressures, the Company has reduced its full year guidance for 2018 adjusted EPS to $0.52 to $0.58 from the prior guidance of $0.65 to $0.70 and now expects adjusted EBITDA of $190 million to $200 million compared to prior guidance of $220 million to $230 million.
