Ardagh Group S.A. – Third Quarter 2018 Results

Ardagh Group S.A. (NYSE: ARD) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Highlights

Paul Coulson, Chairman and Chief Executive, said “In a period marked by high levels of cost inflation, third quarter earnings reflected strong growth in Metal Packaging Americas, with all parts of that business performing very well. In Europe, we recorded good growth in glass packaging during the quarter, while our metal packaging business was adversely impacted by a weak food harvest. In Glass Packaging North America, our footprint adjustments and other initiatives to rebuild profitability continued against a challenging market backdrop. We remain focused on cash generation and de-leveraging over the final quarter and into 2019.”
