  Berry Plastics Corporation Announces Plans for Incremental Term Loan

Business Wire

EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- February 1, 2013

Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (NYSE: BERY) announced today that its subsidiary,
Berry Plastics Corporation (“Berry”), has determined that it intends to obtain
commitments for $1.4 billion of first lien senior secured term loans (rather
than $1.0 billion, as previously announced), to be structured as an
incremental facility under Berry’s existing term loan credit agreement (such
loans, the “New Loans”). Berry intends to use the net proceeds from the
borrowing of the New Loans to redeem all of its outstanding 8 ¼% First
Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2015, Second Priority Senior Secured
Floating Rate Notes due 2014, First Priority Senior Secured Floating Rate
Notes due 2015 and 10¼% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2016 (the “Redemption”).
Berry is in discussion with lenders regarding the New Loans; however, there
can be no assurance that Berry will obtain the commitments in the time frame
or on the terms it expects, or at all or that the Redemption will occur. The
Redemption will be made, if at all, pursuant to the redemption terms and
notice provisions of the applicable indentures.
