Bemis Company Announces New Reportable Business Segments

Bemis Company, Inc. (NYSE:BMS) today announced that it has realigned its segment reporting. As a result, Bemis will report business segment information for three reportable segments as follows: U.S. Packaging, Global Packaging, and Pressure Sensitive Materials.

The U.S. Packaging segment represents all food, consumer, and industrial products packaging-related manufacturing operations located in the United States.
