Adjusted net earnings were $626 million or 81 cents, up 4.5 per cent from a year ago and five cents better than forecast, but the company missed on revenue.

Earnings per share were 78 cents compared with $1.19 year-over-year with the Toronto company saying the decrease was due to the year-over-year unfavourable impact of the forward sale agreement for 9.6 million Loblaw common shares and a number of other items.
