Tredegar Reports Second-Quarter Results

Stocks in this article: TG

Operating profit from ongoing operations was higher compared to the second quarter and first six months of the prior year. Higher sales volumes noted above and favorable mix had a positive impact in comparison to the prior year periods of approximately $5.7 million in the second quarter of 2013 and approximately $7.5 million in the first six months of 2013. Volume for higher-value surface protection films remained strong due to strength in the display market and demand from our key customers.

Margins decreased by approximately $4.6 million in the second quarter of 2013 and approximately $8.1 million in the first six months of 2013 in comparison to the same periods in the prior year. Pricing pressures driven by global supply and demand imbalances in flexible packaging films had a negative effect on operating margins of approximately $1.9 million and $3.6 million in the comparative three and six month period results, respectively. Price reductions in personal care materials and polyethylene overwrap films that were not fully recovered in the current period by productivity gains resulted in an estimated unfavorable impact of $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012. Higher production costs, which were primarily associated with our flexible packaging films manufacturing facility in Brazil, had an unfavorable impact on operating margins of approximately $1.6 million in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012. Combined with operational inefficiencies of approximately $1.4 million in other product areas in the first quarter, higher production costs had an unfavorable impact of approximately $3.0 million in the first six months of 2013 compared to the first six months of 2012.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by approximately $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2013 and $2.7 million in the first six months of 2013 in comparison to the same periods in the prior year, primarily as a result of lower depreciation and legal expenses and the timing of certain administrative expenses. The change in the dollar value of currencies for operations outside the U.S. had a favorable impact of approximately $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2013 and $3.4 million in the first six months of 2013 compared to the same periods in the prior year. The estimated impact on operating profit from ongoing operations of the quarterly lag in the pass-through of average resin costs was approximately a negative $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2013 and a negative $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. The estimated impact on operating profit from ongoing operations of the quarterly lag in the pass-through of average resin costs was approximately a negative $0.6 million in the first six months of 2013 and a negative $1.6 million in the first six months of 2012.
