Tredegar Corporation (NYSE:TG, also the “Company” or “Tredegar”) today reported third quarter financial results for the period ended September 30, 2021.
Third quarter 2021 net income from continuing operations was $6.2 million (0.19 per diluted share) compared to net loss from continuing operations of $17.0 million ($0.51 per diluted share) in the third quarter of 2020. Net income from ongoing operations, which excludes special items and discontinued operations, was $7.2 million ($0.22 per diluted share) in the third quarter of 2021 compared with $13.2 million ($0.39 per diluted share) in the third quarter of 2020. A reconciliation of net income (loss) from continuing operations, a financial measure calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), to net income from ongoing operations, a non-GAAP financial measure, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, is provided in Note (a) of the Notes to the Financial Tables in this press release.
Third Quarter Financial Results Highlights
*Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) from ongoing operations for Aluminum Extrusions of $12.0 million was $4.5 million lower than the third quarter of 2020
*EBITDA from ongoing operations for PE Films of $4.8 million was $1.2 million lower than the third quarter of 2020
*EBITDA from ongoing operations for Flexible Packaging Films of $7.4 million was $2.2 million lower than the third quarter of 2020
John Steitz, Tredegar’s president and chief executive officer said, “Bonnell Aluminum’s production and sales continue to fall below robust demand and bookings due to a shortage of labor while backlog continues to grow. Price increases have helped keep pace with inflationary cost pressures.”
Mr. Steitz also stated, “PE Films’ profitability has been adversely impacted by previously disclosed customer product transitions and resin price increases. In addition, competitive pricing pressures are anticipated to further erode profitability by $6 million in 2022. PE Films is very focused on generating sales of new surface protection products, applications and customers and driving production efficiencies and cost savings.”
Mr. Steitz added, “Terphane continues to perform well while overcoming pandemic-related and other obstacles. Debt, net of cash, declined to $96.7 million at the end of the third quarter, which was $25.5 million lower than the beginning of the year due to strong cash generation.”
