The Company's adjusted consolidated operating earnings were $42.2 million in the reported quarter compared to $56.2 million in the prior year's same quarter.

Segment Results

The segment's quarterly operating earnings were $31.2 million in the reported quarter compared to $39.3 million in the prior year's corresponding quarter.

For the reported quarter, the segment recorded an operating loss of $3.1 million compared to operating earnings of $2.2 million in the prior year's same quarter. The segment experienced a less favorable revenue mix, increased costs to onboard new customers, and a lag in implementing cost reduction activities.

The segment's quarterly operating earnings were $6.9 million in Q4 2017 versus $11.9 million in the prior year's comparable quarter. The operating earnings decline in the segment resulted from lower revenues from sourced products, as well as inventory write-offs.
