Bemis Company, Inc. is a leading global manufacturer of packaging and pressure sensitive materials supplying a variety of markets. Historically, about 65 percent of our total net sales are to customers in the food industry. Sales of our packaging products are widely diversified among food categories and can be found in nearly every aisle of the grocery store. Our emphasis on supplying packaging to the food industry has typically provided a more stable market environment for our U.S. Packaging and Global Packaging business segments, which accounted for approximately 89 percent of our net sales in 2012. Our remaining net sales are from our Pressure Sensitive Materials business segment which, while diversified in end use products, is more exposed to economically sensitive end markets.

Market Conditions

The markets into which our products are sold are highly competitive. Our leading market positions in packaging for perishable food and medical device products reflect our focus on value-added, proprietary products that provide food safety and sterility benefits. We also manufacture products for which our technical know-how and economies of scale offer us a competitive advantage. The primary raw materials for our business segments are polymer resins and films, paper, inks, adhesives, aluminum and chemicals.

Over the past several years, global economic conditions have been weak and prices of food products have increased. While economic growth in Latin America and Asia has exceeded that of North America and Europe, the pace of growth in these regions has slowed over the past 12 months. As a result, we have generally experienced a slowdown in demand in the various geographic regions in which we operate.

Facility Consolidation

To improve efficiencies and reduce fixed costs, we initiated a facility consolidation program during the fourth quarter of 2011 and expanded the program in the second quarter of 2012. In total nine production facilities will be closed and most of the production from these facilities has been transferred to other facilities. As of March 31, 2013, manufacturing operations had ceased at eight of these manufacturing facilities and the remaining closure is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2013. The most current estimate of the total cost of the programs is $141 million, which includes approximately $51 million in employee-related costs, approximately $49 million in fixed asset accelerated depreciation and write-downs, and approximately $41 million in other facility consolidation costs.

We recorded $9.3 million and $8.3 million of charges associated with the facility consolidation programs during the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. These costs have been recorded on the consolidated statement of income as facility consolidation and other costs. We expect the remaining costs of approximately $25 million to be expensed during 2013. Cash payments for these programs in the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, totaled $10.8 million and $8.0 million. Cash payments in the remainder of 2013 are expected to be approximately $40 million.


Australia and New Zealand Distributors

On August 22, 2012, we acquired flexible packaging businesses in Australia and New Zealand. The acquisition of these businesses supports our strategy to enhance our presence in the Asia Pacific region. The combined purchase price was approximately $19.1 million, subject to customary post-closing adjustments.
