Commenting on the flexible packaging segment results, Theisen said, “Our flexible packaging sales mix improved during the third quarter with increased sales of high barrier packaging for perishable food products such as meat, cheese, dairy products, liquids, and coffee. The facility consolidation program is improving our cost structure and will continue to provide improvement as the remaining activities are completed in early 2013. Overall unit sales volumes were lower than prior year levels. Our focus continues to be improved efficiencies and growth in high barrier and medical device packaging worldwide.”PRESSURE SENSITIVE MATERIALS BUSINESS SEGMENTPressure sensitive materials net sales for the third quarter of 2012 were $135.4 million, down 4.5 percent compared to $141.8 million in the third quarter of 2011. The decrease in net sales primarily reflects the negative impact from currency translation of 4.3 percent. Currency translation in this business segment is primarily related to the Euro. For the third quarter of 2012, operating profit was $7.7 million, or 5.7 percent of net sales, compared to operating profit for the third quarter of 2011 of $8.0 million, or 5.6 percent of net sales. The effect of currency translation decreased operating profit in the third quarter of 2012 by $0.5 million compared to the same quarter of 2011.
