TREDEGAR CORPORATION

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

1. In the opinion of management, the accompanying consolidated financial statements of Tredegar Corporation and Subsidiaries (“Tredegar,” “we,” “us” or “our”) contain all adjustments necessary to state fairly, in all material respects, Tredegar’s consolidated financial position as of March 31, 2012, the consolidated results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, the consolidated cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, and the consolidated changes in shareholders’ equity for the three months ended March 31, 2012. All such adjustments, unless otherwise detailed in the notes to the consolidated interim financial statements, are deemed to be of a normal, recurring nature. The financial position data as of December 31, 2011 that is included herein was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements provided in our Annual Report on Form 10-K (“2011 Form 10-K”) for the year ended December 31, 2011 but does not include all disclosures required by United States generally accepted accounting principles. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes included in our 2011 Form 10-K. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

 

2. On October 14, 2011, TAC Holdings, LLC (the “Buyer”) and Tredegar Film Products Corporation, which are indirect and direct, respectively, wholly-owned subsidiaries of Tredegar, entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Gaucho Holdings, B.V. (the “Seller”) an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Vision Capital Partners VII LP (“Vision Capital”). On October 24, under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Buyer acquired from the Seller 100% of the outstanding equity interests of Terphane Holdings LLC (“Terphane”).

Terphane is headquartered in São Paulo, Brazil and operates manufacturing facilities in Cabo de Santo Agostinho, Brazil and Bloomfield, New York. It is a market leading producer of thin polyester films in Latin America with a growing presence in strategic niches in the U.S. Polyester films have specialized properties, such as heat resistance and barrier protection, that make them uniquely suited for the fast-growing flexible packaging market. We expect that the acquisition of Terphane will allow us to extend our product offerings into adjacent specialty films markets and to expand in Latin America.

As of December 31, 2011, the purchase price allocation was preliminary, subject to adjustments for certain terms and conditions under the Purchase Agreement. In the first quarter of 2012, all post-closing adjustments to the purchase price were resolved. Adjustments to the purchase price were made retrospectively as if the accounting had been completed on the acquisition date.

Upon completing these post-closing adjustments, which were primarily related to working capital transferred, the total purchase price (net of cash acquired) was $182.7 million, $3.3 million of which was paid during the first quarter of 2012. The purchase price was funded using available cash (net of cash received) of approximately $57.7 million and financing of $125 million secured from Tredegar’s revolving credit facility.

As of March 31, 2012, the valuation and allocation of intangible assets remained preliminary as we complete our assessment. Based upon management’s preliminary valuation of the fair value of tangible and intangible assets acquired (net of cash acquired) and liabilities assumed, the purchase price has been allocated as follows:

The financial position and results of operations for Terphane have been consolidated with Tredegar subsequent to October 24, 2011. For the quarter ended March 31, 2012, the consolidated results of operations included sales of $33.4 million and net income of $2.3 million related to Terphane. The following unaudited supplemental pro forma data presents our consolidated revenues and earnings as if the acquisition of Terphane had been consummated on January 1, 2011. The pro forma results are not necessarily indicative of our consolidated revenues and earnings if the acquisition and related borrowing had been consummated on January 1, 2011. Unaudited results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 and supplemental unaudited pro forma results for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 are as follows:

 

     Three Months
Ended March 31
 

(In Thousands, Except Per Share Data)

   2012      2011  

Sales

   $ 217,198       $ 233,287   

Income from continuing operations

Earnings per share from continuing operations:

     

Basic

   $ .24       $ .47   

Diluted

     .24         .47

The supplemental unaudited pro forma amounts reflect the application of the following adjustments in order to present the consolidated results as if the acquisition and related borrowing had occurred on January 1, 2011:

 

   

Adjustment for additional depreciation and amortization expense associated with the adjustments to property, plant and equipment, and intangible assets associated with purchase accounting;

 

   

Additional interest expense and financing fees associated with borrowing arrangements used to fund the acquisition of Terphane and the elimination of historical interest expense associated with historical borrowings of Terphane that were not assumed by Tredegar;

 

   

Adjustments related to the elimination of foreign currency remeasurement gains associated with long-term borrowings that were not assumed by Tredegar; and

 

   

Adjustments for the estimated net income tax benefit associated with the previously described adjustments.

 

3. Plant shutdowns, asset impairments, restructurings and other charges are shown in the net sales and operating profit by segment table in Note 10, and unless otherwise noted below, are also included in “Asset impairments and costs associated with exit and disposal activities” in the consolidated statements of income.

Plant shutdowns, asset impairments, restructurings and other charges in the first quarter of 2012 include:

 

   

Net pretax charge of $0.9 million associated with the shutdown of the aluminum extrusions manufacturing facility in Kentland, Indiana, which includes accelerated depreciation for property, plant and equipment of $0.7 million (included in “Cost of goods sold” in the consolidated statements of income), severance and other employee related expenses of $0.6 million and other shutdown-related charges of $83,000, partially offset by adjustments to inventories accounted for under the last-in, first-out (“LIFO”) method of $0.5 million (included in “Cost of goods sold” in the consolidated statements of income);

 

   

Pretax charges of $0.3 million for integration-related expenses and other non-recurring transactions (included in “Selling, general and administrative expenses” in the consolidated statements of income) associated with the acquisition of Terphane by Film Products; and

 

   

Pretax charges of $0.2 million for severance and other employee-related costs in connection with restructurings in Aluminum Extrusions.

Plant shutdowns, asset impairments, restructurings and other charges in the first quarter of 2011 include:

 

   

Pretax losses of $32,000 for timing differences between the recognition of realized losses on aluminum futures contracts and related revenues from the delayed fulfillment by customers of fixed-price forward purchase commitments (included in “Cost of goods sold” in the consolidated statements of income, see Note 6 for additional detail).

Results in the first quarter of 2012 include an unrealized gain from the write-up of an investment accounted for under the fair value method of $3.6 million ($2.3 million after taxes). An unrealized loss on our investment in Harbinger Capital Partners Special Situations Fund, L.P. (“Harbinger Fund”) of $1.1 million ($0.7 million after tax) was recorded in the first quarter of 2012 as a result of a reduction in the fair value of our investment that is not expected to be temporary. See Note 7 for additional information on investments.

On February 12, 2008, we sold our aluminum extrusions business in Canada for approximately $25.0 million to an affiliate of H.I.G. Capital. All historical results for this business have been reflected as discontinued operations; however, cash flows for discontinued operations have not been separately disclosed in the consolidated statements of cash flows.

quarter of 2012, an accrual of $4.8 million ($4.8 million net of tax) was made for indemnifications under the purchase agreement related to environmental matters. Accruals of $4.4 million ($4.4 million after tax) were made in 2011 (none in the first quarter of 2011) for indemnifications under the purchase agreement related to environmental matters.

A reconciliation of the beginning and ending balances of accrued expenses associated with asset impairments and exit and disposal activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012 is as follows:

4. On April 23, 2012, we entered into a $350 million five-year, unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Credit Agreement”), with an option to increase that amount by an additional $75 million. The Credit Agreement replaces our previous $300 million four-year, unsecured revolving credit facility that was due to expire on June 21, 2014. In connection with the refinancing, we borrowed $102 million under the Credit Agreement, which was used, together with available cash on hand, to repay all indebtedness under our previous revolving credit facility.

Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear an interest rate of LIBOR plus a credit spread and commitment fees charged on the unused amount under the Credit Agreement at various indebtedness-to-adjusted EBITDA levels as follows:

   200    35

> 1.0x but <=2.0x

   175    30

<= 1.0x

   150    25

The most restrictive covenants in the Credit Agreement include:

 

   

Maximum indebtedness-to-adjusted EBITDA of 3.0x;

 

   

Minimum adjusted EBIT-to-interest expense of 2.5x;

 

   

Maximum aggregate distributions to shareholders over the term of the Credit Agreement of $100 million plus, beginning with the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012, 50% of net income; and

 

   

Minimum shareholders’ equity at any point during the term of the Credit Agreement of at least $320 million increased on a cumulative basis at the end of each fiscal quarter, beginning with the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012, by an amount equal to 50% of net income (to the extent positive).

During the first quarter of 2012, certain inventories accounted for on a LIFO basis declined permanently, which resulted in cost of goods sold being stated at below current replacement costs by approximately $0.5 million in Aluminum Extrusions.

 

6. Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average common and potentially dilutive common equivalent shares outstanding, determined as follows:

 

     Three Months
Ended March  31
 

(In Thousands)

   2012      2011  

Weighted average shares outstanding used to compute basic earnings (loss) per share

Shares used to compute diluted earnings (loss) per share

     32,393         32,262   
  

 

 

    

 

 

 

Incremental shares attributable to stock options and restricted stock are computed using the average market price during the related period. During the three months ended March 31, 2011, 78,767 (none at March 31, 2012) of average out-of-the-money options to purchase shares were excluded from the calculation of incremental shares attributable to stock options and restricted stock.

 

7. We have invested $7.5 million in a privately held specialty pharmaceutical company. The company is developing and commercializing state of the art drug delivery systems designed to improve patient compliance and outcomes, and our ownership interest on a fully diluted basis is approximately 21%. The investment is accounted for under the fair value method. We elected the fair value option over the equity method of accounting since our investment objectives are similar to those of venture capitalists, which typically do not have controlling financial interests.

At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the estimated fair value of our investment (also the carrying value included in “Other assets and deferred charges” in our balance sheet) was $21.2 million and $17.6 million, respectively. The fair value estimates are based upon significant unobservable (Level 3) inputs since there is no secondary market for our ownership interest. Accordingly, until the next round of financing or other significant financial transaction, value estimates will primarily be based on assumptions relating to meeting product development and commercialization milestones, corresponding cash flow projections (projections of sales, costs, expenses, capital expenditures and working capital investment) and discounting of these factors for the high degree of risk. Adjustments to the estimated fair value of our investment will be made in the period during which changes can be quantified.

 

11


We recognized an unrealized gain of $3.6 million in the first quarter of 2012 (none in the first quarter of 2011). The unrealized gain (included in “Other income (expense), net” in the consolidated statements of income) is primarily attributed to the appreciation of our ownership interest after the weighted average cost of capital used to discount cash flows in our valuation of the specialty pharmaceutical company was reduced to reflect the completion of certain process testing and a reassessment of the risk associated with the timing for obtaining final marketing approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its first product.

The fair market valuation of our interest in the specialty pharmaceutical company is sensitive to changes in the weighted average cost of capital used to discount cash flow projections for the high degree of risk associated with meeting development and commercialization milestones as anticipated. The weighted average cost of capital used in the fair market valuation of our interest in the specialty pharmaceutical company was 55% at March 31, 2012 and 60% at December 31, 2011. At March 31, 2012, the effect of a 500 point decrease in the weighted average cost of capital assumption would have further increased the fair value of our interest in the specialty pharmaceutical company by approximately $3.6 million, and a 500 point increase in the weighted average cost of capital assumption would have decreased the fair value of our interest by approximately $2.7 million.

Had we not elected to account for our investment under the fair value method, we would have been required to use the equity method of accounting. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, net income (loss) recorded by the specialty pharmaceutical company, as reported to us by the investee, was a loss of $1.5 million compared to income of $0.4 million for the first three months of 2011. Operating results included $3.3 million in licensing revenues in the first quarters of 2011 (none in 2012). Total assets (which included cash and cash equivalents of $11.2 million at March 31, 2012 and $9.6 million at December 31, 2011) were $16.3 million and $17.1 million at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

Our investment in Harbinger had a carrying value (included in “Other assets and deferred charges”) of $4.1 million at March 31, 2012, compared with $5.2 million at December 31, 2011. We recorded an unrealized loss of $1.1 million ($0.7 million after taxes) on our investment in Harbinger in the first quarter of 2012 (included in “Other income (expense), net” in the consolidated statements of income) as a result of a reduction in the estimated fair value of our investment that is not expected to be temporary.

The carrying value at March 31, 2012 reflected Tredegar’s cost basis in its investment in the Harbinger Fund, net of total withdrawal proceeds received and unrealized losses. The timing and amount of future installments of withdrawal proceeds, which commenced in August 2010, were not known as of March 31, 2012. Gains on our investment in Harbinger will be recognized when the amounts expected to be collected from our withdrawal from the investment are known, which will likely be when cash in excess of our remaining carrying value is received. Losses will be recognized when management believes it is probable that future withdrawal proceeds will not exceed the remaining carrying value.

 

8.

We use derivative financial instruments for the purpose of hedging margin exposure from fixed-price forward sales contracts in Aluminum Extrusions and currency exchange rate exposures that exist due to specified transactions. Our derivative financial instruments are designated as and qualify as cash flow hedges and are recognized in the balance sheet at fair value. A change in the fair value of derivatives that are highly effective as and that are designated and qualify as cash flow hedges is recorded in other comprehensive income (loss). Gains and losses reported in other comprehensive income (loss) are reclassified to earnings in the periods in which earnings are

 

12


  affected by the variability of cash flows of the hedged transaction. Such gains and losses are reported on the same line as the underlying hedged item. Any hedge ineffectiveness (which represents the amount by which the changes in the fair value of the derivative exceed the variability in the cash flows of the forecasted transaction) is recorded in current period earnings. The amount of gains and losses recognized for hedge ineffectiveness was not material to the first quarters of 2012 and 2011.

The fair value of derivative instruments recorded on the consolidated balance sheets are based upon Level 2 inputs within the corresponding commodity or foreign currency markets. If individual derivative instruments with the same counterparty can be settled on a net basis, we record the corresponding derivative fair values as a net asset or net liability.

In the normal course of business, we enter into fixed-price forward sales contracts with certain customers for the future sale of fixed quantities of aluminum extrusions at scheduled intervals. In order to hedge our margin exposure created from the fixing of future sales prices relative to volatile raw material (aluminum) costs, we enter into a combination of forward purchase commitments and futures contracts to acquire or hedge aluminum, based on the scheduled purchases for the firm sales commitments. The fixed-price firm sales commitments and related hedging instruments generally have durations of not more than 12 months, and the notional amount of aluminum futures contracts that hedged future purchases of aluminum to meet fixed-price forward sales contract obligations was $10.3 million (10.5 million pounds of aluminum) at March 31, 2012 and $10.8 million (11.0 million pounds of aluminum) at December 31, 2011.

The table below summarizes the location and gross amounts of aluminum futures contract fair values in the consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011:

In the event that the counterparty to an aluminum fixed-price forward sale contract chooses to not take delivery of its aluminum extrusions, the customer is contractually obligated to compensate us for any losses on the related aluminum futures and/or forward purchase contracts through the date of cancellation. The offsetting asset and liability positions for derivatives not designated as hedging instruments included in the table above are associated with the unwinding of aluminum futures contracts that relate to such cancellations.

These derivative contracts involve elements of credit and market risk that are not reflected on our consolidated balance sheet, including the risk of dealing with counterparties and their ability to meet the terms of the contracts. The counterparties to our forward purchase commitments are major aluminum brokers and suppliers, and the counterparties to our aluminum futures contracts

 

13


are major financial institutions. Fixed-price forward sales contracts are only made available to our best and most credit-worthy customers. The counterparties to our foreign currency futures and zero-cost collar contracts are major financial institutions.

The effect on net income and other comprehensive income (loss) of derivative instruments classified as cash flow hedges and described in the previous paragraphs for the quarters ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 is summarized in the table below:

As of March 31, 2012, we expect $0.1 million of unrealized after-tax gains on derivative instruments reported in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) to be reclassified to earnings within the next twelve months. For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, net gains or losses realized on previously unrealized net gains or losses from hedges that had been discontinued were not material.

We fund our other post-retirement benefits (life insurance and health benefits) on a claims-made basis, which were $0.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2011.

 

10. We have four reportable segments, which include Film Products, Aluminum Extrusions, AFBS (formerly Therics, Inc.) and Other. There was no activity related to AFBS in the first quarters of 2012 or 2011. Effective January 1, 2012, the operations of Bright View Technologies Corporation (“Bright View”) were incorporated into Film Products, leveraging research and development efforts and accelerating new product development. Prior year balances for Bright View have been reclassified to Film Products to conform with the current year presentation. The Other segment now is solely comprised of the operations of Falling Springs, LLC.

The Brazilian federal statutory income tax rate is a composite of 34.0% (25.0% of income tax and 9.0% of social contribution on income). Terphane’s manufacturing facility in Brazil is the beneficiary of certain income tax incentives that allow for a reduction in the statutory Brazilian federal income tax rate levied on the operating profit of its products. These incentives produce a current effective tax rate of 15.25% for Terphane Ltda. (6.25% of income tax and 9.0% social contribution on income). The current incentives will expire at the end of 2014, but we anticipate that we will qualify for additional incentives that will extend beyond 2014.

Income taxes for the first quarter of 2012 include the recognition of an additional valuation allowance of $0.9 million related to expected limitations on the utilization of assumed capital losses on certain investments recognized in previous years. Income taxes for the first quarter of 2011 include the partial reversal of a valuation allowance of $0.1 million related to expected limitations on the utilization of assumed capital losses on certain investments recognized in previous years.

We claimed an ordinary loss on the write-off of our investment in our aluminum extrusions operations in Canada (sold in February 2008) on our 2008 consolidated tax return (included in discontinued operations in the consolidated statement of income in 2007). The Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) has challenged the ordinary nature of such deduction, asserting that the deduction should be re-characterized as capital in nature. We plan to vigorously defend our position related

 

16


to this matter and believe that we will prevail but there can be no assurance of such a result. If we were not to prevail in final, non-appealable determinations, it is possible that the matter would result in additional tax payments of up to $12 million, plus any interest and penalties.

Tredegar and its subsidiaries file income tax returns in the U.S., various states and jurisdictions outside the U.S. Generally, except for refund claims and amended returns, Tredegar is no longer subject to U.S. federal income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2008.

 

12. We have been notified by U.S. Customs that certain film products exported by Terphane to the U.S. since November 6, 2008 are subject to duties associated with an antidumping duty order on imported PET films. We contest the applicability of these antidumping duties to the films exported by Terphane, which we believe are outside the scope of the antidumping order, and we intend to defend our position vigorously. For shipments through March 31, 2012, we have not received final demand from U.S. Customs, but we estimate that antidumping duties related to this matter could be approximately $9.6 million, none of which is recorded in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet. If unsuccessful, there are indemnifications for these liabilities that are specifically provided for under the Purchase Agreement, and we believe that we will recover all antidumping duty payments made to U.S. Customs from the Seller, subject to the terms of the indemnifications within the Purchase Agreement.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

Forward-looking and Cautionary Statements

Some of the information contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. When we use the words “believe,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “project,” “likely,” “may” and similar expressions, we do so to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on our then current expectations and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those addressed in the forward-looking statements. It is possible that our actual results and financial condition may differ, possibly materially, from the anticipated results and financial condition indicated in these forward-looking statements. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ from expectations include, without limitation: acquired businesses, including Terphane, may not achieve the levels of revenue, profit, productivity or otherwise perform as we expect; acquisitions, including our acquisition of Terphane, involve special risks, including without limitation, diversion of management’s time and attention to our existing businesses, the potential assumption of unanticipated liabilities and contingencies and potential difficulties in integrating acquired businesses and achieving anticipated operational improvements; Film Products is highly dependent on sales to one customer — The Procter & Gamble Company; growth of Film Products depends on its ability to develop and deliver new products at competitive prices; sales volume and profitability of Aluminum Extrusions are cyclical and highly dependent on economic conditions of end-use markets in the U.S., particularly in the construction sector, and are also subject to seasonal slowdowns; our substantial international operations subject us to risks of doing business in foreign countries, which could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations; our future performance is influenced by costs incurred by our operating companies including, for example, the cost of energy and raw materials; and the other factors discussed in the reports Tredegar files with or furnishes to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) from time-to-time, including the risks and important factors set forth in additional detail in “Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A of Tredegar’s 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K (the “2011 Form 10-K”) filed with the SEC. Readers are urged to review and carefully consider the disclosures Tredegar makes in its 2011 Form 10-K. Tredegar does not undertake, and expressly disclaims any duty, to update any forward-looking statement to reflect any change in management’s expectations or any change in conditions, assumptions or circumstances on which such statements are based.

Executive Summary

First-quarter 2012 net income from continuing operations was $7.8 million (24 cents per share) compared with $6.7 million (21 cents per share) in the first quarter of 2011. Losses related to plant shutdowns, asset impairments, restructurings and other items are described in Note 3 on page 9. Net sales (sales less freight) and operating profit (loss) from ongoing operations are the measures of sales and operating profit used by the chief operating decision maker of each segment for purposes of assessing performance.

Operating profit from ongoing operations

   $ 15,466       $ 15,593         (0.8 )% 

Net sales (sales less freight) in the first quarter of 2012 increased 16.9% from the first quarter of 2011, primarily due to the addition of Terphane, partially offset by lower volumes in surface protection materials and personal care films. Terphane generated net sales of $32.2 million in the first quarter of 2012.

 

19


Operating profit from ongoing operations was essentially flat in the first quarter of 2012 compared to the first quarter of the prior year as a result of the lower volumes in surface protection materials and personal care films reference above, offset by operating profit generated by the addition of Terphane and a reduction in the unfavorable impact of the lag in the pass-through of higher resin costs. Volume for these products continues to be adversely affected by a consumer shift to lower price tiers and slow growth in developed markets. Consequently, we are experiencing margin compression as we and our customers face competitive pressures.

Terphane, acquired in the fourth quarter of 2011, had operating profit of $2.6 million in the first quarter of 2012. Terphane’s profit was negatively impacted by a volume shortfall resulting from operating inefficiencies, primarily driven by downtime associated with an upgrade of an existing production line. While in line with our expectations, Terphane’s margins were below those of the prior year, as we believe the first half of 2011 was near the peak of an earnings cycle.

Compared to the first quarter of 2011, the impact of the lag in the pass-through of higher resin costs in the first quarter of 2012 had a favorable impact on results. Film Products has index-based pass-through raw material cost agreements for the majority of its business. However, under certain agreements, changes in resin prices are not passed through for an average period of 90 days. The estimated unfavorable impact of the quarterly lag in the pass-through of changes in average resin costs was $0.5 million in the first quarter of 2012, compared to an unfavorable impact of $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2011. The change in the U.S. dollar value of currencies for operations outside the U.S. had an unfavorable impact of approximately $0.2 million in the first quarter of 2012 compared to the first quarter of 2011.

The operations of Bright View Technologies Corporation (“Bright View”), a late-stage development company producing high-value microstructure-based optical films for the LED (light emitting diode) and fluorescent lighting markets, were incorporated into the Film Products group on January 1, 2012, leveraging research and development efforts and accelerating new product development. Prior year balances for Bright View have been reclassified to Film Products to conform with the current year presentation. Operating losses for Bright View Technologies were $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2012, which are relatively consistent with those for the prior year first quarter.

Capital expenditures in Film Products were $4.9 million in the first quarter of 2012 compared with $4.1 million in the first quarter of 2011. Film Products currently projects that capital expenditures will be approximately $48 million in 2012, which includes approximately $27 million in capital expenditures for a project that will expand capacity at our manufacturing facility in Cabo de Santo Agostinho, Brazil. This multi-year project will significantly increase capacity in Brazil and will primarily serve polyester films customers in Latin America. Depreciation expense was $9.2 million in the first quarter of 2012 and $8.2 million in the first quarter of 2011, and is projected to be approximately $39 million in 2012.

Net sales in the first quarter of 2012 increased in comparison to the first quarter of the previous year due to higher volume, partially offset by lower average selling prices as a result of a decrease in aluminum prices. The favorable change in the operating profit from ongoing operations of approximately $2.9 million versus the first quarter of 2011 was primarily driven by increased volume, margin improvements on value-added services and lower energy costs.

In February 2012, we announced that Aluminum Extrusions would be closing its manufacturing facility in Kentland, Indiana. The plant, which employs 146 people and whose core market was residential construction, is scheduled to close by September 30, 2012. We estimate that charges incurred related to the shutdown will be approximately $8 million, and include accelerated depreciation on property, plant and equipment of approximately $3 million, severance charges of approximately $1 million and other shutdown-related costs of approximately $4 million. Other shutdown-related costs are primarily comprised of equipment transfers and plant shutdown charges. Most of these charges, which include cash expenditures of approximately $4 million, are expected to be recognized over the next 18 months. Starting in 2013, we estimate that the closure of Kentland will have a positive impact on an annual basis of approximately $2-3 million on segment operating profit in future periods.

Capital expenditures in Aluminum Extrusions were $0.5 million in the first quarters of 2012 and 2011. Capital expenditures are projected to be approximately $5.1 million in 2012. Depreciation expense was $2.6 million in the first quarter of 2012 compared with $2.1 million in the first quarter of last year, and is projected to be approximately $10 million in 2012. Higher depreciation expense in 2012 is primarily related to approximately $3 million in accelerated depreciation on fixed assets at the Kentland, Indiana manufacturing facility.

Other

The Other segment includes the mitigation banking business, which is also referred to as Falling Springs. Net sales for this business can fluctuate from quarter-to-quarter as Falling Springs’ revenue varies based upon the timing of development projects within its markets. Operating profit from ongoing operations was $0.2 million in the first quarter of 2012 compared to an operating loss from ongoing operations of $0.2 million in the first quarter of 2011.

Corporate Expenses, Interest and Taxes

Pension expense was $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2012, an unfavorable change of $1.4 million from the first quarter of 2011. Most of the impact of pensions on earnings is reflected in “Corporate expenses, net” in the net sales and operating profit by segment table. We contributed $0.2 million to our pension plans for continuing operations in 2011, and our required contributions are expected to be approximately $5.3 million in 2012. Corporate expenses, net increased in 2012 versus 2011 primarily due to the higher pension expenses noted above and an unrealized loss on our investment in the Harbinger Capital Partners Special Situations Fund, L.P. (“Harbinger”).

Interest expense, which includes the amortization of debt issue costs, was $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2012 in comparison to $0.4 million in the first quarter of last year as a result of an increase in the average borrowings under our revolving credit facility, which were used to finance a portion of the purchase price for the acquisition of Terphane.

The effective tax rate for continuing operations for the first quarter of 2012 was 34.8% compared to 31.0% in the first quarter of 2011. The significant differences between the U.S. federal statutory rate and the effective tax rate for the first three months of 2012 and 2011 is shown in the table provided in Note 11 on page 16.

Net capitalization and other credit measures are provided in the liquidity and capital resources section beginning on page 24.

Critical Accounting Policies

In the ordinary course of business, we make a number of estimates and assumptions relating to the reporting of results of operations and financial position in the preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. We believe the estimates, assumptions and judgments described in the section “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations — Critical Accounting Policies” of our 2011 Form 10-K, have the greatest potential impact on our financial statements, so we consider these to be our critical accounting policies. These policies include our accounting for impairment of long-lived assets and goodwill, investment accounted for under the fair value method, pension benefits and income taxes. These policies require management to exercise judgments that are often difficult, subjective and complex due to the necessity of estimating the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. Actual results could differ significantly from those estimates under different assumptions and conditions. We believe the consistent application of these policies enables us to provide readers of our financial statements with useful and reliable information about our operating results and financial condition. Since December 31, 2011, there have been no changes in these policies that have had a material impact on results of operations or financial position. See Note 3 on page 9 for losses related to plant shutdowns, asset impairments, restructurings and other items occurring during the first quarter of 2012 and the comparable period in 2011.

Results of Operations

First Quarter 2012 Compared with First Quarter 2011

Overall, sales in the first quarter of 2012 increased by 13.4% compared with the first quarter of 2011. Net sales (sales less freight) increased 16.9% in Film Products primarily due to the acquisition of Terphane, partially offset by lower volumes in surface protection materials and personal care films. Net sales increased 2.9% in Aluminum Extrusions due to higher sales volume in most markets, partially offset by lower average selling prices as a result of a decrease in aluminum prices. For more information on net sales and volume, see the executive summary beginning on page 18.

Consolidated gross profit (sales minus cost of goods sold and freight) as a percentage of sales increased to 16.5% in the first quarter of 2012 from 15.5% in 2011. The gross profit margin in Film Products decreased primarily due to the lower volumes noted above and an unfavorable change in product mix. Gross profit margin in Aluminum Extrusions increased as a result of the higher sales volumes noted above, pricing improvements on value-added services and lower energy costs.

As a percentage of sales, selling, general and administrative and R&D expenses were 10.6% in the first quarter of 2012, a slight increase from 10.3% in the first quarter of last year.

Plant shutdowns, asset impairments, restructurings and other items in the first quarter of 2012 shown in the segment operating profit table on page 19 include:

 

   

Net pretax charge of $0.9 million associated with shutdown of the aluminum extrusions manufacturing facility in Kentland, Indiana, which includes accelerated depreciation for property, plant and equipment of $0.7 million (included in “Cost of goods sold” in the consolidated statements of income), severance and other employee related expenses of $0.6 million and other shutdown-related charges of $83,000, partially offset by adjustments to inventories accounted for under the last-in, first-out (“LIFO”) method of $0.5 million (included in “Cost of goods sold” in the consolidated statements of income);

 

   

Pretax charges of $0.3 million for integration-related expenses and other non-recurring transactions (included in “Selling, general and administrative expenses” in the consolidated statements of income) associated with the acquisition of Terphane by Film Products; and

 

   

Pretax charges of $0.2 million for severance and other employee-related costs in connection with restructurings in Aluminum Extrusions.

 

22


Results in the first quarter of 2012 include an unrealized gain from the write-up of an investment accounted for under the fair value method of $3.6 million ($2.3 million after taxes). An unrealized loss on our investment in Harbinger of $1.1 million ($0.7 million after tax) was recorded in the first quarter of 2012 as a result of a reduction in the fair value of our investment that is not expected to be temporary. See Note 7 for additional information on investments.

On February 12, 2008, we sold our aluminum extrusions business in Canada for approximately $25.0 million to an affiliate of H.I.G. Capital. All historical results for this business have been reflected as discontinued operations; however, cash flows for discontinued operations have not been separately disclosed in the consolidated statements of cash flows. In the first quarter of 2012, an accrual of $4.8 million ($4.8 million net of tax) was made for indemnifications under the purchase agreement related to environmental matters. Accruals of $4.4 million ($4.4 million after tax) were made in 2011 (none in the first quarter of 2011) for indemnifications under the purchase agreement related to environmental matters.

Income taxes for the first quarter of 2012 include the recognition of an additional valuation allowance of $0.9 million related to expected limitations on the utilization of assumed capital losses on certain investments recognized in previous years.

Plant shutdowns, asset impairments, restructurings and other items in the first quarter of 2011 shown in the segment operating profit table on page 19 include:

 

   

Pretax losses of $32,000 for timing differences between the recognition of realized losses on aluminum futures contracts and related revenues from the delayed fulfillment by customers of fixed-price forward purchase commitments (included in “Cost of goods sold” in the consolidated statements of income).

Income taxes for the first quarter of 2011 include the partial reversal of a valuation allowance of $0.1 million related to expected limitations on the utilization of assumed capital losses on certain investments recognized in previous years.

Interest income, which is included in “Other income (expense), net” in the consolidated statements of income, was $0.2 million in the first quarter of 2012 and 2011. Interest expense, which includes the amortization of debt issue costs, was $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2012 in comparison to $0.4 million in the first quarter of last year.

Accounts receivable increased $7.1 million (7.3%).

 

   

Accounts receivable in Film Products increased by $2.4 million due to higher sales in comparison to the previous quarter and the timing of cash receipts.

 

   

Accounts receivable in Aluminum Extrusions increased by $5.0 million due to higher sales in comparison to the previous quarter and the timing of cash receipts.

 

   

Accounts receivable for Mitigation Banking decreased $0.3 million due to timing of cash receipts.

 

   

Inventories increased $2.5 million (4.2%).

 

   

Inventories in Film Products increased by approximately $3.6 million. Higher inventories can be attributed to the timing of shipments.

 

   

Inventories for Aluminum Extrusions decreased by approximately $1.1 million due to the timing of shipments.

 

   

Net property, plant and equipment decreased $2.6 million (1.0%) due primarily to depreciation of $11.8 million, capital expenditures of $5.5 million, and a change in the value of the U.S. Dollar relative to foreign currencies ($3.7 million increase).

 

   

Accounts payable increased $4.6 million (6.2%).

 

   

Accounts payable in Film Products increased $0.3 million due to the normal volatility associated with the timing of payments.

 

   

Accounts payable in Aluminum Extrusions increased by $4.0 million, or 17.3%, primarily due to the timing of aluminum purchases as a result of higher volumes.

 

   

Accounts payable increased at corporate and the mitigation banking segment by $0.3 million due to the normal volatility associated with the timing of payments.

 

   

Accrued expenses decreased by $0.8 million (1.8%) primarily due to the payments for post-closing purchase price adjustments related to the acquisition of Terphane, primarily offset by additional accruals for contractual indemnification payments related to the sale of our aluminum extrusions business in Canada.

 

   

Net deferred income tax liabilities in excess of assets increased by $2.1 million primarily due to non-cash adjustments to deferred taxes for items included in other comprehensive income. Income taxes payable increased $2.9 million due primarily to the timing of payments.

Cash provided by operating activities was $14.1 million in the first quarter of 2012 compared with $2.7 million in 2011. The change is primarily related to normal volatility of working capital components.

Cash used in investing activities was $8.8 million in the first quarter of 2012 compared with $4.1 million in the first quarter of 2011. Cash used in investing activities in 2012 primarily includes capital expenditures of $5.5 million and payments for post-closing purchase price adjustments related to the acquisition of Terphane ($3.3 million).

Net cash flow used in financing activities was $4.3 million in the first quarter of 2012 and related to the debt principal payments of $3.0 million and the payment of regular quarterly dividends of $1.4 million (4.5 cents per share). Net cash flow used in financing activities was $0.9 million in in the first quarter of 2011 and related to the payment of regular quarterly dividends of $1.4 million (4.5 cents per share), partially offset by the proceeds from the exercise of stock options.

Noncompliance with any one or more of the debt covenants may have a material adverse effect on financial condition or liquidity in the event such noncompliance cannot be cured or should we be unable to obtain a waiver from the lenders as we would not be permitted to borrow under the credit facility and any amounts outstanding would become due and payable. Renegotiation of the covenant(s) through an amendment to the Credit Agreement may effectively cure the noncompliance, but may have an effect on financial condition or liquidity depending upon how the covenant is renegotiated.

 

26


On April 23, 2012, we entered into a $350 million five-year, unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Credit Agreement”), with an option to increase the amount by an additional $75 million. The Credit Agreement replaces our previous $300 million four-year, unsecured revolving credit facility that was due to expire on June 21, 2014. In connection with the refinancing, we borrowed $102 million under the new revolving credit facility, which was used, together with available cash on hand, to repay all indebtedness under our previous credit agreement.

The credit spread and commitment fees charged on the unused amount under the Credit Agreement at various indebtedness-to-adjusted EBITDA levels are as follows:

 

Pricing Under Revolving Credit Agreement (Basis Points)

   200    35

> 1.0x but <=2.0x

   175    30

   150    25

We believe that the existing borrowing availability, our current cash balances and our cash flow from operations will be sufficient to satisfy our working capital, capital expenditure and dividend requirements for the foreseeable future.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

Tredegar has exposure to the volatility of interest rates, polyethylene and polypropylene resin prices, aluminum ingot and scrap prices, energy prices, foreign currencies and emerging markets. See the liquidity and capital resources section beginning on page 19 regarding credit agreement and interest rate exposures.

Changes in resin, Terephtalic Acid (“PTA”) and Monoethylene Glycol (“MEG”) prices, and the timing of those changes, could have a significant impact on profit margins in Film Products. Profit margins in Aluminum Extrusions are sensitive to fluctuations in aluminum ingot and scrap prices as well as natural gas prices (natural gas is the principal energy source used to operate our casting furnaces). There is no assurance of our ability to pass through higher raw material and energy costs to our customers.

 

27


See the executive summary beginning on page 18 for discussion regarding the impact of the lag in the pass-through of resin price changes. The volatility of average quarterly prices of low density polyethylene resin in the U.S. (a primary raw material for Film Products) is shown in the chart below.

Source: Quarterly averages computed by Tredegar using monthly data provided by Chemical Data Inc. (“CDI”). In January 2010, CDI reflected a 15 cents per pound non-market adjustment based on their estimate of the growth of discounts over the 2005 to 2009 period. The 4th quarter 2009 average rate of 61 cents per pound is shown on a pro forma basis as if the non-market adjustment was made in October 2009.

Resin prices in Europe, Asia and South America have exhibited similar long-term trends. The price of resin is driven by several factors including supply and demand and the price of oil, ethylene and natural gas. To address fluctuating resin prices, Film Products has index-based pass-through raw material cost agreements for the majority of its business. However, under certain agreements, changes in resin prices are not passed through for an average period of 90 days. Pricing on the remainder of our business is based on raw material costs and supply demand dynamics within the markets in which we compete.

The volatility of average quarterly prices of PTA and MEG (raw materials for Film Products) is shown in the chart below.

our exposure to aluminum price volatility (see the chart below) under these fixed-price arrangements, which generally have a duration of not more than 12 months, we enter into a combination of forward purchase commitments and futures contracts to acquire or hedge aluminum, based on the scheduled deliveries. See Note 8 on page 12 for additional information. The volatility of quarterly average aluminum prices is shown in the chart below.

In Aluminum Extrusions, we hedge from time-to-time a portion of our exposure to natural gas price volatility by entering into fixed-price forward purchase contracts with our natural gas suppliers. We estimate that, in an unhedged situation, every $1 per mmBtu per month change in the market price of natural gas has an $80,000 impact on the continuing monthly operating profit in Aluminum Extrusions. In September 2005, we announced an energy surcharge for our aluminum extrusions business in the U.S. to be applied when the NYMEX natural gas price is in excess of $8.85 per mmBtu.

The volatility of quarterly average natural gas prices is shown in the chart below.

The percentages for foreign markets are relative to Tredegar’s total net sales from ongoing operations

We attempt to match the pricing and cost of our products in the same currency and generally view the volatility of foreign currencies (see trends for the Euro and Chinese Yuan in the chart below) and emerging markets, and the corresponding impact on earnings and cash flow, as part of the overall risk of operating in a global environment. Exports from the U.S. are generally denominated in U.S. Dollars. Our foreign currency exposure on income from foreign operations relates to the Euro, the Chinese Yuan, the Hungarian Forint, the Brazilian Real and the Indian Rupee.

In Film Products, where we are typically able to match the currency of our sales and costs, we estimate that the change in value of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. Dollar had a negative impact on operating profit of approximately $0.2 million in the first quarter of 2012 compared with the first quarter of 2011.

Trends for the Euro are shown in the chart below.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

Pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, we carried out an evaluation, with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2012, that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
