Tredegar Reports Fourth-Quarter Results

Tredegar Corporation (NYSE:TG) reported fourth-quarter net income from continuing operations of $13.9 million (43 cents per share) compared to $3.5 million (11 cents per share) in the fourth quarter of 2011. Results from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2012 include a net after-tax gain of $4.2 million (13 cents per share) for special items primarily related to an unrealized gain for an investment accounted for under the fair value method. Income from ongoing operations in the fourth quarter, which excludes special items, was $9.7 million (30 cents per share) versus $6.5 million (20 cents per share) in the fourth quarter of last year.

Net income from continuing operations for 2012 was $43.2 million ($1.34 per share) compared to $28.5 million (89 cents per share) in 2011. Results from continuing operations in 2012 include a net after-tax gain of $4.7 million (14 cents per share) for special items primarily related to an unrealized gain for an investment accounted for under the fair value method, partially offset by charges associated with the shutdown of our Kentland, Indiana aluminum extrusions manufacturing facility. Income from ongoing operations in 2012 was $38.5 million ($1.20 per share) versus $27.9 million (87 cents per share) in 2011. Further details regarding the special items that reconcile income from ongoing operations to net income from continuing operations are provided in the financial tables to this press release.
