Pactiv Corporation Announces Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2012

Pactiv Corporation announced financial results for the second quarter of 2012. For the quarter, the company had continued to have strong year-over-year earnings improvement. The reported revenue decreased from $1.06 billion to $1.01 billion in second quarter of 2012, primarily driven by volume decreases driven by the sale of the laminating operation in Louisville, Kentucky, in January 2012, as well as exiting non-strategic business along with lower sales in mature and declining categories, partially offset by contributions from the Dopaco acquisition and pricing strategies to recover resin costs. Adjusted EBITDA increased from $144 million to $162 million in second quarter of 2012, primarily driven by improved operational performance, realization of synergies from the Dopaco and Pactiv acquisitions, pricing strategies, partially offset by the sale of the laminating operations in Louisville, Kentucky in January 2012, as well as volume decreases in mature and declining categories.
