The Hershey Co. and Health management Associates Inc. saw their third-quarter earnings drop from a year ago, while Carlisle Cos. Inc.'s earnings gained 29 percent.

Dauphin County-based candy maker Hershey posted net income of $176 million, a $20 million or 10 percent drop from a year ago, despite a 7.5 percent increase in net sales, the company said.

Part of the drop was due to nearly $26 million in charges the company took on in the third quarter related to Hershey’s internal restructuring, known as Project Next Century, as well as costs associated with the acquisition of Brookside Foods Ltd., according to the company.

Earnings per diluted share were 77 cents, falling short of analyst estimates of 86 cents, according to Yahoo Finance.
