MONTREAL – Transcontinental Inc. says its net earnings attributable to shareholders were $15.9 million, down from $22.2 million a year earlier.

The Montreal-based printer, packager and publisher says revenues were $683.2 million, down from $747.2 million during the same quarter last year.

Net earnings per share were 18 cents, down from 26 cents last year.

President and CEO Thomas Morin says this past quarter, the company pursued cost reduction initiatives “with determination.”

He says Transcontinental is also seeing the results of efforts to improve its product mix toward higher-value products.

This past February, the company announced it was closing its printing press in Saint-Hyacinthe, Que., one of a few recent closures across its network as it struggles with demand for packaging and printing.
