Transcontinental  core earnings fell in the fourth quarter due to lower revenues from ongoing challenges in its printing sector. Canada's largest printer says earnings excluding one-time items, decreased nearly  to $69.9 million from $87 million  in the last quarter of 2018. Chief executive Francois Olivier said the full year was marked by the integration of packaging firm Coveris , which marked a turning point in its transformation from a commercial printer and media company.

For the full year, revenues increased 15.8 per cent to $3.04 billion due largely to acquisitions. Packaging operating earnings margins improved but Olivier added the printing sector faced another difficult year "marked by the greater than expected decline in our revenues from retailer-related services." "In the coming years, we will continue optimizing our printing platform and seize growth opportunities in certain promising verticals, such as book printing and in-store marketing products."
