- Fourth quarter 2017 reported and adjusted EPS were $1.35 and $1.73, respectively, up from fourth quarter 2016 reported and adjusted EPS of $1.26 and $1.67, respectively
- Full-year 2017 reported and adjusted EPS were $7.06 and $7.70, respectively, up from $6.55 of reported EPS and $7.13 adjusted EPS in the year-ago period

WESTCHESTER, Ill., Feb 1, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Ingredion Incorporated (NYSE:INGR), a leading global provider of ingredient solutions to diversified industries, today reported results for the fourth quarter 2017. The results reported in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") for 2017 and 2016 include items which are excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures which we present.

"We concluded 2017 with record earnings per share and operating income. Sales of our higher-value specialty portfolio grew to 28 percent of net sales for the year and the continued integration of our acquisitions of the Sun Flour rice business, TIC Gums and Shandong Huanong Specialty Corn position us for continued growth," said Jim Zallie, president and chief executive officer. "For the year, specialty-related volume growth, as well as our global optimization efforts drove margin expansion. North America, Asia Pacific and EMEA achieved record operating income. South America, although down, completed an important organizational restructuring, enabling a more cost competitive position going forward.

"We expect continued growth in our specialty portfolio, disciplined cost management, and ongoing capital investments to support margin expansion. Additionally, we will explore potential M&A opportunities that drive specialty growth. We remain committed to creating long-term shareholder value. For 2018, we anticipate adjusted EPS of $8.10 to $8.50," Zallie added.
