A Mixed Bag. ACCO’s 3Q23 results were a mixed bag. Global macroeconomic weakness, softer technology accessories product demand, and a stronger U.S. dollar negatively impacted 3Q23 top line. But gross margin improved by 400 basis points, reflecting the continued recovery of margin from pricing actions, as well as cost savings from the Company’s restructuring and footprint rationalization efforts.

3Q23 Results. Net sales for the quarter declined 7.7% to $448.0 million from $485.6 million last year. We had estimated sales of $475 million. Comparable sales fell 9.9%. Net income was $14.9 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to a net loss of $68.7 million, or $0.73, last year. Last year was impacted by a goodwill impairment charge, partially offset by higher restructuring and income tax expense in the current year. Adjusted net income was $23.1 million, or $0.24, compared to $24.1 million, or $0.25, last year.
