Packaging Corporation of America (NYSE: PKG) today reported second quarter net income of $64 million, or $0.66 per share, which included a one-time, non-cash charge of $5 million after tax, or $0.05 per share, for pension plan changes. Excluding special items, net income was $69 million, or $0.71 per share, a quarterly record, compared to second quarter 2012 net income of $48 million, or $0.49 per share. Net sales were a record $800 million, up 12% from second quarter 2012 net sales of $712 million.

The $0.22 per share increase in net income, excluding special items, was driven by higher containerboard and corrugated products prices and mix ($0.27) and higher corrugated products sales volume ($0.05). These items were partially offset by higher costs for energy ($0.04), labor and fringe benefits ($0.03) and the timing of annual mill maintenance outages ($0.03).

Excluding special items, net income for the first six months of 2013 was $130 million, or $1.33 per share, compared to net income for the first six months of 2012 of $88 million, or $0.91 per share. Year-to-date net sales were $1.56 billion compared to $1.38 billion in 2012, up 12%.

Corrugated products shipments per workday were up 5.2%, and total shipments were up 6.8% with one more workday in this year's second quarter. Containerboard production was 629,000 tons, down 9,000 tons from last year's second quarter, and outside sales of containerboard were down by the same amount. Lower containerboard production was the result of scheduling more annual mill maintenance downtime in this year's second quarter, but based on days of operation, the mills set a second quarter record for tons produced per day. PCA ended the quarter with its containerboard inventories down about 12,000 tons below the end of the first quarter.

Commenting on reported results, Mark W. Kowlzan, Chief Executive Officer of PCA, said, "We had an outstanding quarter in all aspects of our operations with record earnings driven by higher prices and higher corrugated products volume. The annual outages at three of our mills went extremely well with very efficient start-ups and record productivity. Earnings were higher than our second quarter guidance driven by better than forecasted sales volume and price, and lower than forecasted costs."

"Looking ahead to the third quarter," Mr. Kowlzan added, "we expect higher corrugated products prices, higher sales volume, and with no planned annual outages, increased mill production and lower mill operating costs. We also expect higher purchased electricity costs with summer pricing, higher amortization of annual outage repair costs, and a higher tax rate. Considering these items, we expect third quarter earnings to be about $0.88 per share."

PCA is the fourth largest producer of containerboard and corrugated packaging products in the United States with sales of $2.8 billion in 2012. PCA operates four paper mills and 71 corrugated products plants in 26 states across the country.

Notes to Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 
(1)   Net income and earnings per share excluding special items are non-GAAP financial measures. The after-tax effects of special items are excluded as management considers such items to not necessarily be indicative of PCA's ongoing operations. Management uses these measures to focus on PCA's ongoing operations and believes that it is useful to investors because it enables them to perform meaningful comparisons of past and present operating results.
(2) Represents a curtailment charge of $7.8 million pre-tax less $2.8 million in taxes, or $5.0 million after-tax, related to the Company's hourly defined benefit plan (see Notes to Consolidated Earnings Results).
(3) Represents charges from the company's debt refinancing completed June 26, 2012 of $3.7 million pre-tax less $1.2 million in taxes, or $2.5 million after-tax.
(4) Represents a charge from the amendment of our 2009 federal income tax return related to biofuel credits (see Notes to Consolidated Earnings Results).
