Veritiv reported a quarterly net income of $26.4 million, up from a net loss of $18.5 million in the prior year. Veritiv’s basic and diluted earnings per share were $1.69 and $1.62 respectively, compared to a loss for both basic and diluted earnings per share of $1.16 in the same period one year ago.
