Pregis Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2008 Financial Results
Date:3/26/2009

n. For the year, the decline in earnings was driven by higher costs of resin and other raw materials through much of the year, mitigated in part by the benefit of the Company's selling price increases and productivity and cost reduction programs.

Commenting on the Company's results, Mike McDonnell, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "2008 featured some of the most challenging market conditions this industry has ever faced. Rapidly escalating raw materials costs had a significant negative impact on our performance in the first half of the year, while unprecedented economic weakness in both the North American and European economies negatively impacted us in the second half, particularly in the fourth quarter. However, despite these significant headwinds we still generated solid earnings and cash flow. We took aggressive pricing action in response to the escalating raw material costs and remain committed to maintaining pricing discipline. In addition, we successfully implemented a number of aggressive productivity and cost reduction initiatives which will benefit our business going forward."

Mr. McDonnell continued, "We enter 2009 with the expectation that it will be a very challenging year, given the continuing economic uncertainty. Although we were very successful in 2008 in reducing costs through our various cost reduction and restructuring initiatives, we recognize that based on our 2009 outlook, additional cost reductions are required. To this point, we are implementing additional restructuring initiatives to reduce our cost structure by optimizing our manufacturing footprint and our organizational structure and operating processes. This next phase of our restructuring should be fully implemented by mid-2009. We estimate that these new initiatives should drive 2009 year-over-year savings of approximately $15 million to $20 million, which will help offset the economic weakness we believe will continue throughout
