Berry Plastics Group, Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended December 27, 2014; Reaffirms Cash Flow Guidance for the Year of 2015

Berry Plastics Group, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended December 27, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $1,220 million against $1,140 million a year ago. Operating income was $68 million against $63 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $16 million against $9 million a year ago. Net income was $13 million or $0.11 per diluted share against $6 million or $0.05 per diluted share a year ago. Net cash from operating activities was $100 million against $172 million a year ago. Additions to property, plant, and equipment was $35 million against $47 million a year ago. Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.27. Adjusted free cash flow of $36 million for the December 2014 quarter. Net debt was $3,759 million against $3,789 a quarter ago. The company is reaffirming fiscal 2015 adjusted free cash flow guidance of $320 million assuming no impact from resin cost changes. This estimate includes $589 million of cash from operating activities and $230 million of additions to property, plant, and equipment. Although not factored into guidance, just as raw material price increases have negatively impacted cash flow from operating activities over the past two years, the company expects that the trend of decreasing resin prices, to the extent it continues, should have a favorable impact on cash from operating activities beginning in the March 2015 quarter.
