Wausau Paper Reports Second-Quarter Results

Wausau Paper (NYSE:WPP):

Second-Quarter Highlights

Strategic Repositioning
  • The Company completed the sale of its specialty paper business on June 26, resulting in net cash proceeds, subject to certain post-closing adjustments, of approximately $105 million after settlement of transaction-related liabilities, transaction costs and taxes.
  • Net transaction proceeds were immediately used to eliminate the then approximately $67 million outstanding balance on the Company‚Äôs revolving-credit facility.

Tissue Expansion
  • The Company launched its new Green Seal TM DublNature ® family of premium away-from-home towel and tissue products produced from its new ATMOS technology-enabled Harrodsburg, Kentucky, paper machine on May 20, with 16 new products in tissue, roll and folded towel available to the market during the second quarter.

Financial Results
  • Due to the completed sale and the first-quarter closure of its former manufacturing facility in Brainerd, Minnesota, financial performance of the former Paper segment, including an after-tax impairment charge of approximately $40.1 million as a result of the second-quarter sale, is reported as discontinued operations.
  • Including a loss of $0.81 per share from discontinued operations, net of tax, the 2013 second quarter net loss was $1.11 per share.
  • On a reported basis, the second quarter 2013 results from continuing operations was a net loss of $0.30 per share.
  • Results of continuing operations reflect the impact of the start-up of the new Harrodsburg manufacturing and converting capabilities, as well as manufacturing and inventory transition in support of the new products related to the $220 million Tissue expansion project.

Henry C. Newell, president and CEO, commented, "Completing the sale of the specialty paper business represents significant progress on our strategic repositioning efforts as a company focused on tissue. We launched a new family of towel and tissue products in the second quarter and will introduce a range of new ATMOS-based product additions over the coming quarters. We remain committed to our growth expectations, delivering six percent case shipment growth in our tissue business by the fourth quarter of 2013."
