R. Grace & Co. Settlement agreement in February 2014 , marking a significant milestone for Company Company provides outlook for 2014 Net Sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS and Free Cash Flow ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE:SEE) today announced financial results for fourth quarter and full year 2013. Commenting on these results, Jerome A. Peribere , President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “2013 was a solid year for Sealed Air – we generated $509 million of Free Cash Flow, increased net sales by 2.7% in constant dollars to $7.7 billion and increased Adjusted EBITDA by 7.3% excluding SARs. In the fourth quarter, we delivered favorable price/mix in every division and in every region. We made significant progress on our ‘Get Fit’ strategy and, as we move forward, we are well positioned to ‘Change the Game.’ Our focus will continue to be on improving the quality of our business.” Peribere continued, “The completion of the W. R. Grace & Co. Settlement agreement is a significant development for Sealed Air . It brings closure to this matter after more than a decade, we will no longer incur interest on the settlement liability, and we also anticipate meaningful cash tax benefits over the next several years. This will provide Sealed Air with more financial flexibility and enable us to continue to add value to our business and shareholders alike.” Unless otherwise stated, all results compare 2013 to 2012 and include continuing operations. The rigid medical packaging business (“Medical Rigids”), which the Company sold in December 2013 , and Diversey Japan, which the Company sold in November 2012 , have been presented as discontinued operations. Reported information is defined as U.S. GAAP. Year-over-year net sales discussions present both reported and constant dollar performance. Constant dollar sales performance excludes the impact of currency translation. Additionally, non-U.S. GAAP adjusted financial measures, such as Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes and Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”), Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share (“Adjusted EPS”) and Core Tax Rate exclude the impact of special items, such as restructuring charges and other one-time items. Additional detail on cash-settled stock appreciation rights (“SARs”) granted as part of the Diversey acquisition is provided in the supplementary information. Business and Financial Highlights In the fourth quarter 2013, the Food Care division increased sales by 4.2% in constant dollars primarily due to favorable price/mix of 3.2% and continued strength in Latin America and Asia , Middle East , Africa and Turkey (“AMAT”). In the full year 2013, the Food Care division had strong performance, delivering 3.3% sales growth in constant dollars and increasing Adjusted EBITDA, excluding SARs, by 8.1% to $578.6 million , or 15.2% of net sales. Food Care increased volumes by 1.7% and had a favorable price mix of 1.6%. The Diversey Care division, which is undergoing a multi-year turn around, continues to make significant operational and financial improvements. In the fourth quarter 2013, Adjusted EBITDA, excluding SARs, increased 9.5% to $56.5 million , or 10.4% of net sales. In the full year 2013, Adjusted EBITDA, excluding SARs, increased 6.4% to $223.1 million , or 10.3% of net sales. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter and full year 2013 was primarily attributable to favorable pricing and realization of cost synergies. The Product Care division has been focused on improving the mix of its product portfolio and implementing new initiatives to improve pricing disciplines. This strategy resulted in a favorable price/mix of 1.7% in the fourth quarter 2013 on a 3.1% increase in volumes. As it relates to the W. R. Grace & Co. matter, Sealed Air will no longer incur interest expense related to the settlement liability, which amounted to $48 million in 2013, and the Company anticipates a cash tax benefit in 2015 of more than $200 million . The Company funded the $930 million liability with cash on hand and committed liquidity. In addition, the Company issued 18 million shares which were previously reserved for the Settlement agreement and such shares continued to be included in the diluted shares outstanding. Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Summary Fourth quarter 2013 net sales from continuing operations of $2.0 billion increased 3.0% on a reported basis and 4.1% in constant dollars. Volume and product price/mix increased by 1.4% and 2.7%, respectively, in the quarter. For the full year 2013, net sales totaled $7.7 billion , a reported increase of 1.7% and 2.7% in constant dollars. Volume and product price/mix for the full year increased 1.5% and 1.2%, respectively. Approximately $90 million of net sales from Medical Rigids were reported in discontinued operations. In the fourth quarter 2013, the Company delivered 8.0% growth in AMAT and 6.7% in Latin America and experienced improving trends in Europe with 2.6% net sales growth, in constant dollars. North America and Japan , Australia and New Zealand (“JANZ”) also contributed to solid growth with increases of 3.6% and 2.7%, respectively. For the full year 2013, net sales increased 8.8% for AMAT, 9.7% for Latin America , and 2.1% for North America . Net sales in Europe and JANZ were essentially unchanged compared to a year ago. Additionally, 2013 reported net sales from Developing Regions 1 increased 5.1%, or 8.9% in constant dollars, accounting for 25.7% of total net sales. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the fourth quarter 2013 of $261.8 million , or 13.0% of net sales, was comparable to fourth quarter 2012. Excluding the impact of SARs, Adjusted EBITDA was $273.1 million , or 13.6% of net sales, compared to $275.1 million , or 14.1% of net sales, in 2012. The margin decline in the fourth quarter was primarily attributable to higher selling, general and administrative costs and unfavorable supply chain costs, partially offset by cost synergies, favorable mix and price/cost spread and volume growth. The higher costs were partly attributable to an increase of approximately $17 million in performance compensation recorded in the fourth quarter 2013, as compared to the same period a year ago, in recognition of the strong full year-over-year performance in Adjusted EBITDA, working capital management and other key financial metrics. Full year 2013 Adjusted EBITDA was $1.03 billion , or 13.5% of net sales. This compares to $981.3 million , or 13.0% of net sales in 2012. Excluding the impact of SARs, Adjusted EBITDA was $1.07 billion , or 13.9% of net sales. This represents a 7.3% increase compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $1.0 billion in 2012, or 13.2% of net sales. This increase was primarily due to higher sales and realization of cost synergies. Incremental cost synergies under the 2011-2014 Integration and Optimization Program were approximately $110 million in 2013 and primarily resulted from headcount reductions, elimination of redundant costs, plant consolidations and procurement and logistics savings. Approximately $15 million of Adjusted EBITDA from Medical Rigids was reported in discontinued operations in each of 2012 and 2013. On a reported basis, fourth quarter 2013 EPS from continuing operations was $0.02 , which included $0.32 per share of special items primarily consisting of a $50 million ( $0.23 per share) increase to the Company’s income tax provision resulting from an increase in its valuation allowance with respect to the deferred tax asset related to the W. R. Grace & Co. Settlement agreement. This compares to a loss from continuing operations of $1.79 per share in 2012, which included $2.11 of special items, mostly due to the non-cash impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets. Adjusted EPS from continuing operations was $0.34 for the fourth quarter. The Company recognized $0.11 per share in discontinued operations from the sale of Medical Rigids, including a $0.10 per share gain on the sale. This compares to Adjusted EPS of $0.32 in 2012. SARs had an unfavorable impact of $0.05 in the fourth quarters of both 2013 and 2012. The core tax rate was 20.0% in the fourth quarter 2013, compared to 21.9% in the fourth quarter 2012. For the full year 2013, reported EPS from continuing operations was $0.44 , which included $0.79 per share of special items, mostly due to restructuring charges and the increase in the valuation allowance discussed above. The reported loss of $8.39 per share in 2012 included $9.31 of special items due to the non-cash impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets. Adjusted EPS from continuing operations was $1.23 . The Company recognized $0.14 per share in discontinued operations from the sale of Medical Rigids, including $0.10 per share gain on the sale. This compares to $0.91 in 2012. Adjusted EPS from continuing operations for the full year 2013, excluding SARs, was $1.39 , as compared to $0.98 in 2012. The core tax rate was 21.8% in 2013, compared to 26.1% in 2012 and a year-over-year benefit of $0.07 per share. Cash Flow and Net Debt As the Company prepared for the W. R. Grace & Co. Settlement agreement, it focused considerable efforts during the last few months of the year on accelerated cash generation, contributing to the net cash provided by operating activities of $624.8 million in 2013. This amount was net of $107.0 million of cash payments for restructuring activities and $46.0 million of cash payments for SARs. In 2012, net cash provided by operating activities was $394.2 million , which was net of $103.4 million of cash payments for restructuring activities and $24.0 million of cash payments for SARs. Capital expenditures were $116.0 million in the full year 2013 as compared to $122.8 million in 2012. Free Cash Flow , defined as cash flow provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, was $508.8 million in 2013, as compared to $271.4 million in 2012. This year-over-year increase primarily reflects higher net earnings and net working capital improvements. Compared to December 31, 2012 , the Company’s net debt decreased $446.9 million to $4.3 billion as of December 31, 2013 . This decrease was primarily due to cash generated from operating activities and proceeds from the sale of Medical Rigids, partially offset by capital expenditures of $116.0 million and dividend payments of $102.0 million . Net debt included the W. R. Grace & Co. Settlement agreement and related accrued interest of $925.1 million . Outlook for Full Year 2014 The Company expects net sales to be relatively flat compared to 2013 net sales of $7.7 billion with organic growth offset by product rationalization and an estimated unfavorable impact of more than 2% from foreign currency translation. Adjusted EPS, excluding the impact of SARs, is expected to be in the range of $1.50 to $1.60 . This represents an estimated increase of 8% to 15% compared with 2013 Adjusted EPS, excluding SARs, of $1.39 . Adjusted EPS guidance excludes the impact of special items. The Company’s core tax rate for 2014 is expected to increase to approximately 25%. Adjusted EBITDA for 2014, including non-cash profit sharing expense and excluding the impact of SARs, is estimated to be in the range of $1.050 billion to $1.070 billion . This represents an estimated increase of 1% to 3% compared with 2013 Adjusted EBITDA of $1.038 billion , including non-cash profit sharing expense and excluding the impact of SARs. For 2014, the Company anticipates capital expenditures of approximately $170 million and cash restructuring payments of approximately $150 million . As a result of higher capital expenditures and restructuring payments in 2014 as compared to 2013, the Company anticipates 2014 Free Cash Flow to be approximately $410 million .

(2) In December 2013 , we completed the sale of our rigid medical packaging business for net cash proceeds of $121.0 million . In November 2012 , we sold our Diversey Japan business for net cash proceeds of $313 million . Our 2013 results include a net gain of $23 million from the sale of our medical rigids business. Our 2012 results include a net gain of $179 million from the sale of our Diversey Japan business. The financial results of both the rigid medical business and Diversey Japan businesses are reported as discontinued operations, net of tax, and, accordingly all previously reported financial information has been revised. (3) In 2012, we recorded non-cash impairment charges related to the goodwill and other intangible assets associated with our Diversey acquisition. See our 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K and September 2013 Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for further details. (4) At December 31, 2013 , the weighted average remaining vesting life of outstanding cash-settled stock appreciation rights ("SAR"s) was less than one year. However, we will continue to incur expense related to these SARs until the last expiration date of these awards ( March 2021 ). The amount of related future expense will fluctuate based on exercise and forfeiture activity and changes in the assumptions used in the valuation model, including the price of Sealed Air common stock. (5) In 2013 and 2012, we completed several financing transactions, which resulted in the recognition of pre-tax losses on debt redemptions primarily due to the acceleration of unamortized debt issuance costs and certain fees. (6) In the three month ended 2013, we recorded a $50 million increase to our income tax provision resulting from an increase in the valuation allowance with respect to the deferred tax asset in connection with the Settlement agreement. (7) For 2012, basic and diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding were the same because the effect of the assumed issuance of 18 million shares of common stock reserved for the Settlement agreement (as defined in our 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K) and the effect of non-vested stock was anti-dilutive due to the reported net loss from continuing operations.

(2) Our product price/mix reported above includes the net impact of our pricing actions and rebates as well as the period-to-period change in the mix of products sold. Also included in our reported product price/mix is the net effect of some of our customers purchasing our products in non-U.S. dollar or non-euro denominated countries at selling prices denominated in U.S. dollars or euros. This primarily arises when we export products from the U.S. and euro-zone countries. The impact to our reported product price/mix of these purchases in other countries at selling prices denominated in U.S. dollars or euros was not material in the periods included in the tables above. (3) Changes in these items excluding the impact of foreign currency translation are non-U.S. GAAP financial measures. Since we are a U.S. domiciled company, we translate our foreign-currency-denominated financial results into U.S. dollars. Due to changes in the value of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar, translating our financial results from foreign currencies to U.S. dollars may result in a favorable or unfavorable impact. It is important that we take into account the effects of foreign currency translation when we view our results and plan our strategies. Nonetheless, we cannot control changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Consequently, when our management looks at our financial results to measure the core performance of our business, we exclude the impact of foreign currency translation by translating our current period results at prior period foreign currency exchange rates.
