GAAP earnings were 25 cents per share or $5.9 million. In the previous year’s third quarter, the company reported non-GAAP earnings of 24 cents per share or $6.2 million.

In addition to the weak third quarter results, Bob Evans also cut its guidance for the full 2015 fiscal year. Management now projects GAAP earnings of between 70 cents and 90 cents per share. They lowered their guidance for adjusted earnings to between $1.40 and $1.60 per share from between $1.90 and $2 per share. Management cited the weaker-than-expected third fiscal quarter performance as the main reason for the huge downward revision.

The new numbers are significantly weaker than the consensus estimate of $1.97 per share for the full year.
