Second Quarter Financial Results Highlights
Operating profit from ongoing operations for PE Films of $7.8 million was $0.9 million lower than the second quarter of 2018
Operating profit from ongoing operations for Flexible Packaging Films of $2.5 million was $1.2 million higher than the second quarter of 2018
Operating profit from ongoing operations for Bonnell Aluminum of $14.5 million was $1.4 million higher than the second quarter of 2018
John Steitz, Tredegar’s president and chief executive officer, said, “Overall PE Films profits declined mainly from the previously disclosed lost business relating to a customer product transition in our Personal Care component. Our Surface Protection component of PE Films had record contribution to our quarterly operating profits and continued to benefit from a delay in a possible future customer product transition. Personal Care remains very focused on getting new business as well as cost reduction initiatives.”
Mr. Steitz continued, “Terphane had another quarter of profit growth supported by the re-start in June 2018 of a previously idled production line. Operating profits in Bonnell Aluminum increased in the quarter despite lower volume. If the volume shortfall persists, we’ll continue to develop contingency plans to address these conditions, including proper alignment of our cost structure with customer demand.”
Mr. Steitz further commented, “We had good net cash flow with debt net of cash declining by $29 million during the first half of 2019, including a $17.6 million dividend received in April from our kaléo investment.”
