Stocks in this article: RKT

Segment Results

Containerboard and Paperboard Tons Shipped

Corrugated Packaging segment tons shipped declined approximately 16,000 tons over the prior year quarter as we took two major maintenance outages and built approximately 74,000 tons of inventory in the current year quarter. Consumer Packaging segment paperboard and pulp shipments of approximately 346,000 tons increased 4% percent over the prior year quarter primarily on stronger demand for recycled paperboard.

Corrugated Packaging Segment

Corrugated Packaging segment net sales increased $67 million to $1,590 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year quarter and segment income increased $29 million to $138 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year quarter. The increased sales and earnings are primarily related to higher selling prices and lower recycled fiber and energy costs partially offset by $16 million of incremental maintenance outage expense and higher virgin fiber and chemical costs. Corrugated Packaging segment EBITDA margin was 15.4% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Consumer Packaging Segment

Consumer Packaging segment net sales decreased $9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year quarter due primarily to lower selling prices. Segment income was $67 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to $80 million in the prior year quarter due primarily to lower selling prices, and to lower income from promotional displays that resulted primarily from higher containerboard prices. Consumer Packaging segment EBITDA margin was 14.9% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Recycling Segment

Recycling segment net sales decreased $78 million over the prior year first quarter to $252 million primarily as a result of lower selling prices and volume. Segment income increased $1 million to $4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to cost structure improvements. Recycling segment EBITDA margin was 3.0% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
