RockTenn Declares Dividend, Payable on May 26, 2015

RockTenn reported that its Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.320525 per share on its Class A Common Stock. The dividend will be paid to shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 7, 2015 and which will be paid on May 26, 2015.

RockTenn Revises Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter Ending March 31, 2015

RockTenn revised earnings guidance for the second quarter ending March 31, 2015. The company announced that it expects to report adjusted earnings per share for its fiscal second quarter ending March 31, 2015, in the range of $0.70 to $0.75 per share, compared to the previous guidance of $0.80 to $0.90 per share. The change in outlook for the March quarter reflects that strong corrugated packaging volume performance has been more than offset by the following items: the consequences of winter weather, including natural gas curtailment and challenging logistics execution, impacted operations during the quarter with an estimated financial impact of approximately $0.06 per share; a substantial electrical failure at Panama City mill in early February that triggered a series of events that resulted in lost production and increased maintenance costs of approximately $0.04 per share; and lower promotional activity has reduced sales in merchandising displays business to levels lower than the March quarter of 2014. Reduced sales of merchandising displays combined with previously discussed operating challenges related to new business that was on boarded in 2014 contribute to expectation that fiscal second quarter Merchandising Displays segment income will be less than that reported during the first quarter of fiscal 2015.
