Kapstone Paper and Packaging Corporation Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Earnings Capex Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2015

KapStone Paper and Packaging Corporation reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $546 million in the first quarter of 2015 decreased by $3 million, or 1% compared to $549 million for the 2014 first quarter. The decrease is primarily due to $3 million reflecting a stronger U.S. dollar compared to the Euro which impacted sales in Europe and exports, and lower sales volume. Income before provision for income taxes was $40.051 million compared to $48.865 million a year ago. Net income was $26.100 million compared to $32.099 million a year ago. Diluted net income per share was $0.27 compared to $0.33 a year ago. Non-GAAP EBITDA was $81.585 million compared to $90.803 million a year ago. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $86.572 million compared to $95.535 million a year ago. Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $29.379 million compared to $35.198 million a year ago. Non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS was $0.30 compared to $0.36 a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities of $3.912 million compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $38.951 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were $28.762 million compared to $32.420 million a year ago. Net debt was $1.1 billion. Adjusted EBITDA was lower year-over-year with a primary negative impact being lower productivity at the company's mills. The lower productivity and higher costs negatively impacted adjusted EBITDA by $9 million. The stronger dollar also negatively impacted adjusted EBITDA by $4 million and inflation primarily on fiber and compensation costs was $3 million. Operating income of $47 million decreased by $11 million, or 19%, compared to the 2014 first quarter operating income of $58.118 million. The lower operating earnings primarily reflects lower productivity, 12,000 tons of lower sales volume, higher fiber costs and compensation costs and the stronger U.S. dollar which impacted prices in Europe and for exports, partially offset by lower planned outage costs. The company anticipates second quarter 2015 capex to be approximately $35 million.
