Food distribution company Sysco Corporation (NYSE: SYY) reported higher earnings and revenues for the fourth quarter of 2022. The top line also exceeded Wall Street’s estimates.
Net earnings, adjusted for non-recurring items, rose sharply to $1.15 per share in the June quarter from $0.71 per share in the prior-year period. Unadjusted net income climbed to $510 million or $0.99 per share from $151.1 million or $0.29 per share last year.
The impressive outcome reflects a 17% growth in net sales to $18.9 billion. Analysts were looking for slower growth. The top-line benefitted from strong consumer and customer away-from-home demand.

The strong financial performance was delivered while simultaneously investing in our Recipe For Growth strategy,” said Sysco’s CEO Kevin Hourican.
