Income from operations in the quarter was $259m, up from $229m in Q4 2022.  

Its segment income for the same period was $382m, compared to $292m in the previous year’s fourth quarter, reflecting higher beverage can volumes in its Americas Beverage segment. 

Crown chair, president, and CEO Timothy Donahue said: “Looking ahead to 2024, our focus will be on cash generation and continuous operational improvement.   

“The company has established a manufacturing platform which will allow us to service existing and additional market demand with significantly reduced levels of capital investment.   

“The company expects capital expenditures of no more than $500m in each of 2024 and 2025, with the resulting increased cash flow being used to further reduce net leverage and return capital to shareholders.”
