(NYSE: ITW) yesterday reported third quarter 2015 diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations of $1.39, a 9 percent increase compared to the year-ago period.

"ITW delivered another strong quarter of margin expansion and earnings per share growth," said E. Scott Santi, chairman and chief executive officer. "In the quarter, ITW set new all-time records for operating margin and after-tax return on invested capital and grew EPS by 9 percent. In addition, free cash flow conversion was very strong at 126 percent.
