Sealed Air Corporation : Sealed Air Announces Results and Settlement of Early Tender for 7.875% Senior Notes Due 2017 ELMWOOD PARK, N.J., Thursday, March 21, 2013 - Sealed Air Corporation ("Sealed Air" or the "Company") (NYSE: SEE) today announced that, in connection with the previously announced cash tender offer and consent solicitation by the Company to purchase for cash any and all of its 7.875% Senior Notes due 2017 (the "Existing Notes"), the early tender period in respect of the tender offer expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 20, 2013 (the "Consent Payment Deadline"). As of the Consent Payment Deadline, $324.167 million principal amount of Existing Notes, or 81.04% of the principal amount outstanding, had been validly tendered and not withdrawn. Those holders who validly tendered their Existing Notes prior to the Consent Payment Deadline received on March 21, 2013 the total consideration of $1,056.25 per $1,000 principal amount of the Existing Notes, which included a consent payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the Existing Notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest on the Existing Notes up to, but not including, the payment date. The withdrawal rights for the early tender of Existing Notes and corresponding consents in the tender offer expired as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 20, 2013. The final offer period will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on April 3, 2013, unless extended (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the "Expiration Time"). Holders who tender their Existing Notes after the Consent Payment Deadline and on or prior to the Expiration Time will be eligible to receive only the tender offer consideration of $1,026.25 per $1,000 principal amount of Existing Notes tendered plus accrued and unpaid interest to the payment date, but not the consent payment. As the Company received consents from holders of greater than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Existing Notes, the Company, the guarantors thereto and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the "Trustee"), have executed a supplemental indenture (the "Supplemental Indenture") to the indenture governing the Existing Notes, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission at a later date. The amendments and modifications contained in the Supplemental Indenture eliminate certain restrictive covenants contained in the indenture. These changes became operative concurrently with the acceptance for payment on March 21, 2013 of all Existing Notes that were validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) at or prior to the Consent Payment Deadline. This press release is not an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell any securities, including the Existing Notes. The tender offer is only being made pursuant to the terms of the offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement, dated March 7, 2013 (as it may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the "Statement"), and related letter of transmittal (the "Letter of Transmittal"). The complete terms and conditions of the tender offer are set forth in the Statement that has been sent to holders of the Existing Notes. Holders are urged to read the tender offer documents carefully before making any decision with respect to the tender offer and consent solicitation. Holders of Existing Notes must make their own decisions as to whether to tender their Existing Notes and provide the related consents, and if they decide to do so, the principal amount of the Existing Notes to tender. Holders may obtain copies of the Statement and the related Letter of Transmittal from the Information Agent and Depositary for the tender offer, Global Bondholder Services Corporation by phone at (866) 387-1500 or (212) 430-3774 or in writing at 65 Broadway - Suite 404, New York, NY 10006.

Any questions regarding the terms of the tender offer and the consent solicitation should be directed to BofA Merrill Lynch at (888) 292-0070 (U.S. toll free) or (980) 387-3907 (collect). None of the Company, the Dealer Manager and Solicitation Agent, the Information Agent and Depositary or any other person makes any recommendation as to whether holders of Existing Notes should tender their Existing Notes or provide the related consents, and no one has been authorized to make such a recommendation.
