Berry Plastics Group, Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year Ended September 27, 2014; Provides Financial Guidance for the Fiscal Year 2015

Berry Plastics Group, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year ended September 27, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $1,310 million against $1,204 million a year ago. Operating income was $93 million against $90 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $44 million against $35 million a year ago. Net income attributable to the company was $29 million against $26 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were $0.24 against $0.22 a year ago. Adjusted free cash flow increased by 9% over the prior year quarter $120 million to $131 million. Operating EBITDA was $210 million compared to $194 million in the prior year quarter This $16 million increase in operating EBITDA included net cost reductions and improved productivity in manufacturing and SG&A of $13 million as well as operating EBITDA related to the three acquisitions completed in fiscal 2014. For the full year, the company reported net sales of $4,958 million against $4,647 million a year ago. Operating income was $316 million against $386 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $67 million against $85 million a year ago. Net income attributable to the company was $62 million against $57 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were $0.51 against $0.48 a year ago. Net cash from operating activities was $530 million against $464 million a year ago. Additions to property, plant, and equipment were $215 million against $239 million a year ago. The company's adjusted free cash flow for fiscal year 2014 was $302 million and $131 million for the September 2014 quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily attributed to increased selling prices due to higher material costs along with sales from businesses acquired in the last 12 months partially offset by weak packaged food demand. Operating EBITDA was $785 million. The $10 million improvement over fiscal 2013 can be attributed to cost-reduction actions, the realization of synergies from recent acquisitions, organic growth in certain product categories and earnings from acquired businesses, partially offset by unfavorable product mix, a $26 million under-recovery of raw material and freight costs in spite of $178 million of net higher selling prices as compared to fiscal 2013 and volume softness in certain product lines. LTM adjusted EBITDA increased to $830 million, up 5% from fiscal 2013. The company reported net debt of $3,789 million against $3,804 million last year. The company has targeted fiscal 2015 adjusted free cash flow, after deducting the $39 million tax receivable payment made in October 2014, at approximately $320 million. Additionally, investments in property, plant and equipment are forecasted to be approximately $230 million for fiscal 2015. Excluding the $50 million, free cash guidance would be $370 million less the tax effect for the $50 million just referenced and the company estimates fiscal 2015 effective tax rate for income tax purposes at approximately 33%. Assuming no change in short-term interest rates or refinancing activity, the company estimated fiscal 2015 cash interest expense to be approximately $205 million.
