Cereplast Announces $500,000 In New Revenue And Provides 2013 Outlook

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Jan. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cereplast, Inc. (OTCQB:CERP) (the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of proprietary biobased, compostable and sustainable bioplastics, today is providing a shareholder update and an outlook for 2013. Cereplast has created additional liquidity through the generation of approximately $500,000 in revenue over the last six weeks while continuing to focus on restructuring its operations to further position the Company for growth throughout 2013.

Revenue Generation in Europe, the United States and Asia

In Europe, specifically in Italy, the Italian parliament made a critical vote on December 13, 2012, which confirms the proposed sanctions on companies using traditional plastic bags and mandates a switch to bioplastic or other alternatives 60 days from the publication of the Application Decree. In anticipation of the final Application Decree to be signed, Cereplast has received several orders for blown film resin, which were fulfilled utilizing its existing inventory. All customer payments were received in advance of shipment or within conservative credit terms. The Company expects continued growth in demand for blown film as a result of the anticipated legislation in Italy.  

In the United States, Cereplast received several orders for compostable resins that will be used for food service applications. Multiple large food chains have started to embrace the use of compostable material for food service ware items including straws, cups and cutlery, for which Cereplast's resins are in demand. Cereplast has fulfilled these orders and all payments have been received.

Cereplast received several purchase orders from existing clients in India. Management is encouraged by the progress made in India and anticipates their investments in this new market will translate into additional purchase orders and future revenue growth in 2013.

Debt and Indenture

Management announced that our debt holders have waived the event of default, and have agreed to forbear from exercising their rights and remedies under the Indenture with respect to the Company's failure to make interest payments due on June 1, 2012 and December 1, 2012. The Company was successful in arranging a structured investment from an institutional investor, offering a repayment plan to settle both the past due interest balance as well as the coupon due in June 2013. The restructuring provides the Company relief until December 2013.
