Business Wire

EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- December 12, 2013

Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (NYSE:BERY) announced today that its subsidiary,
Berry Plastics Corporation (“Berry”), intends to obtain commitments for $1.125
billion of first lien senior secured term loans, 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

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 Refinancing
will occur.
