Silgan Completes Acquisition Of Rexam’s Plastic Thermoformed Food Business

Silgan Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:SLGN), a leading supplier of rigid packaging for consumer goods products, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Rexam PLC’s plastic thermoformed food business.

This business will be reported as part of the plastic container segment and will operate under the name Silgan Plastic Food Containers. With anticipated 2012 revenues of $100 million, this business produces both barrier and non-barrier bowls and trays for the shelf-stable food markets.

The purchase price for this business (including preliminary post-closing adjustments) was $248.1 million. The Company funded the purchase price for this acquisition from cash on hand. The Company expects this business to be neutral to earnings in 2012 principally due to the initial inventory write-up required for accounting purposes, but expects this business to be modestly accretive to earnings for the full year 2013.

Silgan Holdings is a leading supplier of rigid packaging for consumer goods products with annual net sales of approximately $3.5 billion in 2011. Silgan operates 82 manufacturing facilities in North and South America, Europe and Asia. Silgan is a leading supplier of metal containers in North America and Europe, and a leading worldwide supplier of metal, composite and plastic vacuum closures for food and beverage products. In addition, Silgan is a leading supplier of plastic containers for food and personal care products in North America.
