NOTE 1 — GENERAL INFORMATION

Nature of Business and Basis of Presentation

Graphic Packaging Holding Company (“GPHC” and, together with its subsidiaries, the “Company”) is a leading provider of packaging solutions for a wide variety of products to food, beverage and other consumer products companies. The Company is the largest U.S. producer of folding cartons and holds a leading market position in coated unbleached kraft paperboard, coated-recycled boxboard and flexible packaging. The Company’s customers include some of the most widely recognized companies in the world. The Company strives to provide its customers with packaging solutions designed to deliver marketing and performance benefits at a competitive cost by capitalizing on its low-cost paperboard mills and converting plants, its proprietary carton and packaging designs, and its commitment to customer service.

GPHC and Graphic Packaging Corporation (“GPC”) conduct no significant business and have no independent assets or operations other than GPHC’s ownership of all of GPC’s outstanding common stock, and GPC’s ownership of all of the outstanding common stock of Graphic Packaging International, Inc. (“GPII”).

The Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include all subsidiaries in which the Company has the ability to exercise direct or indirect control over operating and financial policies. Intercompany transactions and balances are eliminated in consolidation.

In the Company’s opinion, the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements contain all normal recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods. The Company’s year end Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet data was derived from audited financial statements. The accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X and do not include all the information required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete financial statements. Therefore, these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with GPHC’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012. In addition, the preparation of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual amounts could differ from those estimates and changes in these estimates are recorded as known.

For a summary of the Company’s significant accounting policies, please refer to GPHC’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012.

Equity Secondary Offering

During March of 2013, certain shareholders of the Company sold 28.0 million shares of common stock in a secondary public offering at $7.00 per share, as well as an additional 4.2 million shares pursuant to the underwriters' overallotment option. The shares were sold by certain affiliates of TPG Capital, L.P. (the “TPG Entities”), certain Coors family trusts and the Adolph Coors Foundation (the “Coors Family Stockholders”), Clayton, Dubilier & Rice Fund V Limited Partnership (the “CD&R Fund”) and Old Town, S.A. (“Old Town”) (together with the TPG Entities, the Coors Family Stockholders, and the CD&R Fund, the "Selling Stockholders"). The shares outstanding held by the Selling Stockholders decreased from approximately 53% to approximately 44%. TPG Capital BD, LLC, an affiliate of TPG Capital, L.P., was one of the underwriters of the offering.

Adoption of New Accounting Standards

Effective January 1, 2013, the Company adopted revised guidance on the Comprehensive Income topic of the Financial Accounting Staandards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("the FASB Codification") which requires an entity to present either parenthetically on the face of the financial statements or in the notes, significant amounts reclassified from each component of accumulated other comprehensive income and the income statement line items affected by the reclassification. The adoption did not have any impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Effective January 1, 2013, the Company adopted revised guidance on Balance Sheet topic of the FASB Codification, which clarifies the scope of disclosures about offsetting assets and liabilities. The clarification applies only to derivatives, repurchase agreements and reverse purchase agreements, and to certain securities borrowing and securities lending transactions, and not to ordinary trade receivables and payables. The adoption did not have any impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted

In March 2013, the FASB issued guidance amending the Foreign Currency Matters topic of the FASB Codification. The amendment requires a parent entity that ceases to have a controlling financial interest in a subsidiary or group of assets that represents a business, within a foreign entity, to release any related cumulative translation adjustment into net income. This guidance will be effective for the Company in the fourth quarter of 2013, to be applied prospectively, and is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

NOTE 3 — ACQUISITIONS

On December 31, 2012, the Company acquired Contego Cartons ("Contego"), a leading food and consumer product packaging company based in the United Kingdom. Under the terms of the transaction, the Company paid approximately $93 million and assumed debt of approximately $35 million in an all cash transaction funded with existing cash and debt under the Company's revolving line of credit. Contego operates four folding carton facilities that convert approximately 150,000 tons of paperboard annually into folding cartons for the food and consumer product industries. The acquisition and associated goodwill are included in the paperboard packaging segment. This transaction is herein referred to as the "Contego Transaction".

On December 31, 2012, the Company acquired A&R Carton’s Beer and Beverage packaging business in Europe ("A&R"). Under the terms of the transaction, the Company paid approximately $25 million in cash and assumed approximately $2 million in debt. The transaction was funded with existing cash and borrowings from the Company’s revolving line of credit. A&R includes two manufacturing facilities that convert approximately 30,000 tons of paperboard annually. The acquisition and associated goodwill are included in the paperboard packaging segment. This transaction is herein referred to as the "A&R Transaction". The A&R Transaction and the Contego Transaction are collectively referred to as the "European Acquisitions".

The purchase price of the European Acquisitions has been preliminarily allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on the estimated fair values as of the purchase date and is subject to adjustments in subsequent periods. The European Acquisitions were made to grow the European food and beverage business and optimize the Company's supply chain footprint around customer needs. The Company does not expect goodwill to be deductible for tax purposes. The preliminary purchase price allocation is as follows:

NOTE 4 — DEBT

On March 16, 2012, the Company entered into a $2.0 billion amended and restated credit agreement with a syndicate of lenders consisting primarily of commercial banks (the “Credit Agreement”). The Credit Agreement provides for a $1.0 billion revolving credit facility and a $1.0 billion amortizing term loan facility, both due on March 16, 2017. The interest rate margin over London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) will vary between 175 basis points and 275 basis points depending upon the Company's current consolidated total leverage ratio. The Company's current rate is LIBOR plus 200 basis points. This transaction was treated primarily as an extinguishment of debt, and a charge of $8.9 million was recorded as Loss on Modification or Extinguishment of Debt in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

On December 18, 2012, the Company entered into Amendment No. 1 to the existing Credit Agreement to amend certain restrictions in the Credit Agreement and to provide an incremental term loan facility (the "Incremental Term Loan") in the amount of $300 million to fund a concurrent share repurchase. The Incremental Term Loan was treated primarily as a modification of debt. As a result, $2.1 million in third party fees were expensed as part of the loss on modification of debt, and the remaining fees paid to creditors of $3.1 million were deferred and will be amortized using the effective interest method over the term of the debt.

For more information regarding the Company’s debt, see “Note 5 Debt” of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company’s 2012 Form 10-K.

(a)
In accordance with its debt agreements, the Company’s availability under its Revolving Credit Facility has been reduced by the amount of standby letters of credit issued of $26.9 million as of March 31, 2013. These letters of credit are used primarily as security against its self-insurance obligations and workers’ compensation obligations. These letters of credit expire at various dates through 2013 unless extended.

The Credit Agreement and the indentures governing the 9.5% Senior Notes due 2017 and the 7.875% Senior Notes due 2018 (the “Indentures”) limit the Company’s ability to incur additional indebtedness. Additional covenants contained in the Credit Agreement and the Indentures, among other things, restrict the ability of the Company to dispose of assets, incur guarantee obligations, prepay other indebtedness, make dividend and other restricted payments, create liens, make equity or debt investments, make acquisitions, modify terms of the Indentures, engage in mergers or consolidations, change the business conducted by the Company and its subsidiaries, and engage in certain transactions with affiliates. Such restrictions, together with the highly leveraged nature of the Company, could limit the Company’s ability to respond to changing market conditions, fund its capital spending program, provide for unexpected capital investments or take advantage of business opportunities.

Under the terms of the Credit Agreement, the Company must comply with a maximum consolidated total leverage ratio and a minimum consolidated interest coverage ratio. The Company's obligations under the Credit Agreement are secured by substantially all of the Company's domestic assets.

As of March 31, 2013, the Company was in compliance with the covenants in the Credit Agreement and the Indentures.


NOTE 5 — STOCK INCENTIVE PLANS

The Company has three active equity compensation plans, but since 2004 the Company’s only plan pursuant to which new grants are made is the Graphic Packaging Holding Company Amended and Restated 2004 Stock and Incentive Compensation plan (the “2004 Plan”). Stock options and other awards granted under all of the Company’s plans generally vest and expire in accordance with terms established at the time of grant. Shares issued pursuant to awards under the plans are from the Company’s authorized but unissued shares. Compensation costs are recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period of the award.

Stock Awards, Restricted Stock and Restricted Stock Units


11

Table of Contents        


    

The Company’s 2004 Plan permits the grant of stock awards, restricted stock and restricted stock units (“RSUs”). All outstanding RSUs vest and become payable in one to three years from date of grant. RSUs granted to employees generally contain performance conditions based on various financial targets and service requirements that must be met for the shares to vest. Upon vesting, RSUs are payable in shares of common stock. Stock awards granted to non-employee directors are unrestricted on the grant date.

Data concerning RSUs granted in the first three months of 2013 is as follows:

During the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, $6.8 million and $9.8 million, respectively, were charged to compensation expense for stock incentive plans.

During the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, approximately 3.0 million and 4.9 million shares were issued, respectively. The shares issued were primarily related to RSUs granted during 2009 and 2010.

During the three months ended March 31, 2013, approximately 0.8 million shares were issued through the exercise of stock options at an average exercise price of $5.78.


NOTE 6 — PENSIONS AND OTHER POSTRETIREMENT BENEFITS

The Company maintains both defined benefit pension plans and postretirement health care plans that provide medical and life insurance coverage to eligible salaried and hourly retired employees in North America and their dependents. The Company maintains international defined benefit pension plans which are either noncontributory or contributory and are funded in accordance with applicable local laws. Pension or termination benefits are based primarily on years of service and the employees’ compensation.

Currently, the North American defined benefit plans are closed to newly-hired salaried and non-union hourly employees. Effective July 1, 2011, the North American defined benefit plans were frozen for most salaried and non-union hourly employees and replaced with a defined contribution plan. The U.K. and Canada defined benefit plans were frozen effective March 31, 2001 and December 31, 2009, respectively, and replaced with defined contribution plans. The Company assumed additional benefit plans due to the European Acquisitions.

The Company made postretirement health care benefit payments of $0.5 million and $0.5 million during the first three months of 2013 and 2012, respectively. The Company estimates its postretirement health care benefit payments for the full year 2013 to be approximately $3 million. During 2012, the Company made postretirement health care benefit payments of $3.2 million.


NOTE 7 — FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT

The Company enters into derivative instruments for risk management purposes only, including derivatives designated as hedging instruments under the Derivatives and Hedging topic of the FASB Codification and those not designated as hedging instruments under this guidance. The Company uses interest rate swaps, natural gas swap contracts, and forward exchange contracts. These derivative instruments are designated as cash flow hedges and, to the extent they are effective in offsetting the variability of the hedged cash flows, changes in the derivatives’ fair value are not included in current earnings but are included in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income. These changes in fair value will subsequently be reclassified to earnings.

Interest Rate Risk

The Company uses interest rate swaps to manage interest rate risks on future interest payments caused by interest rate changes on its variable rate term loan facility. The differential to be paid or received under these agreements is recognized as an adjustment to Interest Expense related to debt. At March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the Company had interest rate swap agreements outstanding with a notional amount of $460 million. The swap agreements, under which the Company will pay fixed rates of 0.80% to 0.82% and receive one-month LIBOR rates, expire in April 2016.

Changes in fair value will subsequently be reclassified into earnings as a component of Interest Expense, Net as interest is incurred on amounts outstanding under the term loan facility. Ineffectiveness measured in the hedging relationship is recorded in earnings in the period it occurs.

During the first three months of 2013 and 2012, there were minimal amounts of ineffectiveness related to changes in the fair value of interest rate swap agreements. Additionally, there were no amounts excluded from the measure of effectiveness.

Commodity Risk

To manage risks associated with future variability in cash flows and price risk attributable to certain commodity purchases, the Company enters into natural gas swap contracts to hedge prices for a designated percentage of its expected natural gas usage. The contracts are carried at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss, and the resulting gain or loss is reclassified into Cost of Sales concurrently with the recognition of the commodity consumed. The ineffective portion of the swap contracts’ change in fair value would be recognized immediately in earnings. The Company settled contracts outstanding at December 2012 during the first quarter 2013, and currently does not have any outstanding natural gas swap contracts.

During the first three months of 2013 and 2012, there were minimal amounts of ineffectiveness related to changes in the fair value of natural gas swap contracts. Additionally, there were no amounts excluded from the measure of effectiveness.

Foreign Currency Risk

The Company enters into forward exchange contracts to manage risks associated with future variability in cash flows resulting from anticipated foreign currency transactions that may be adversely affected by changes in exchange rates. The contracts are carried at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss), and gains/losses related to these contracts are recognized in Other Income, Net when the anticipated transaction affects income.

At March 31, 2013, multiple forward exchange contracts existed that expire on various dates through 2013. Those purchased forward exchange contracts outstanding at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, when aggregated and measured in U.S. dollars at contractual rates at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 had notional amounts totaling $47.6 million and $63.9 million, respectively.

No amounts were reclassified to earnings during the first three months of 2013 or during 2012 in connection with forecasted transactions that were no longer considered probable of occurring, and there was no amount of ineffectiveness related to changes in the fair value of foreign currency forward contracts. Additionally, there were no amounts excluded from the measure of effectiveness.

Derivatives not Designated as Hedges

The Company enters into forward exchange contracts to effectively hedge substantially all of its accounts receivable resulting from sales transactions denominated in foreign currencies in order to manage risks associated with foreign currency transactions adversely affected by changes in exchange rates. At March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, multiple foreign currency forward exchange contracts existed, with maturities ranging up to three months. Those foreign currency exchange contracts outstanding at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, when aggregated and measured in U.S. dollars at exchange rates at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, had net notional amounts totaling $21.2 million and $19.5 million, respectively. Unrealized gains and losses resulting from these contracts are recognized in Other Income, Net and approximately offset corresponding recognized but unrealized gains and losses on these accounts receivable.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company’s derivative instruments are carried at fair value. The Company has determined that the inputs to the valuation of these derivative instruments are level 2 in the fair value hierarchy. Level 2 inputs are defined as quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly through market corroboration, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument. The Company uses valuation techniques based on discounted cash flow analyses, which reflect the terms of the derivatives and use observable market-based inputs, including forward rates and use market price quotations obtained from independent derivatives brokers, corroborated with information obtained from independent pricing service providers.

As of March 31, 2013, there has not been any significant impact to the fair value of the Company’s derivative liabilities due to its own credit risk. Similarly, there has not been any significant adverse impact to the Company’s derivative assets based on evaluation of the Company’s counterparties’ credit risks.

The fair value of the Company’s derivative instruments is as follows:

The fair values of the Company’s other financial assets and liabilities at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 approximately equal the carrying values reported on the Consolidated Balance Sheets except for Long-Term Debt. The fair value of the Company’s Long-Term Debt (excluding capital leases) was $2,437.3 million and $2,399.1 million as compared to the carrying amounts of $2,365.3 million and $2,325.5 million as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively. The fair value of the Company's Senior Notes is based on quoted market prices (Level 1 inputs) and the remainder of the Company's Long-Term Debt is based on Level 2 inputs. Level 2 valuation techniques for Long-Term Debt are based on quotations obtained from independent pricing service providers.

At March 31, 2013, the Company expects to reclassify approximately $0.2 million of pre-tax gain in the next twelve months from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss to earnings, contemporaneously with and offsetting changes in the related hedged exposure. The actual amount that will be reclassified to future earnings may vary from this amount as a result of changes in market conditions.


NOTE 8 — REDEEMABLE NONCONTROLLING INTERESTS

On December 8, 2011, the Company combined its multi-wall bag and specialty plastics packaging businesses with the kraft paper and multi-wall bag businesses of Delta Natural Kraft, LLC and Mid-America Packaging, LLC (collectively "DNK"), both wholly owned subsidiaries of Capital Five Investments, LLC ("CVI"). Under the terms of the transaction, the Company formed a new limited liability company, Graphic Flexible Packaging, LLC ("GFP") and contributed its ownership interests in multi-wall bag and specialty plastics packaging subsidiaries to it. CVI concurrently contributed its ownership interests in DNK to GFP. Neither party received cash consideration as part of the transaction. After the combination, the Company owns approximately 87% of GFP and consolidates its results of operations. The remaining 13% of GFP is owned by CVI. CVI's noncontrolling interest in GFP is recorded as Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests in the Company's financial statements.

CVI has the right, at certain times, to require the Company to acquire their ownership interests in GFP at fair value based on third-party valuations. Since it is probable that the noncontrolling interests will become redeemable in the future, based on the passage of time, the noncontrolling interests subject to the put options are adjusted to their estimated redemption amounts each reporting period with a corresponding adjustment to Capital in Excess of Par Value. The adjustment to the carrying amount is determined after attribution of comprehensive income of the redeemable noncontrolling interests. The adjustment to the carrying amount does not impact net income or comprehensive income in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and does not impact earnings per share since the shares of the redeemable noncontrolling interests are redeemable at fair value. For accounting purposes, the redemption value at which the redeemable noncontrolling interests is recorded on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets cannot be less than the initial amount plus attribution of comprehensive income of the noncontrolling interest. At March 31, 2013, the book value of the redeemable noncontrolling interests was determined as follows:

Net loss attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interests
(0.3
)

Change in fair value of redeemable securities

Balance at March 31, 2013
$
10.5


The calculation of fair value (a Level 3 measurement) of the redeemable noncontrolling interest is determined by using a discounted cash flow analysis based on the Company's forecasts discounted using a weighed average cost of capital and market indicators of terminal year cash flows based upon a multiple of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”).

NOTE 9 — INCOME TAXES

During the three months months ended March 31, 2013, the Company recognized Income Tax Expense of $23.7 million on Income before Income Taxes and Equity Income of Unconsolidated Entities of $58.0 million. During the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company recognized Income Tax Expense of $13.0 million on Income before Income Taxes and Equity Income of Unconsolidated Entities of $30.0 million. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 was different than the statutory rate primarily due to the mix and levels between foreign and domestic earnings including losses in jurisdictions with full valuation allowances, as well as the effects of certain discrete tax items. The Company has approximately $892 million of Net Operating Losses for U.S. federal income tax purposes, which are currently being used and may be used to offset future taxable income.


NOTE 10 — ENVIRONMENTAL AND LEGAL MATTERS

Environmental Matters

The Company is subject to a broad range of foreign, federal, state and local environmental, health and safety laws and regulations, including those governing discharges to air, soil and water, the management, treatment and disposal of hazardous substances, solid waste and hazardous wastes, the investigation and remediation of contamination resulting from historical site operations and releases of hazardous substances, and the health and safety of employees. Compliance initiatives could result in significant costs, which could negatively impact the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows. Any failure to comply with environmental or health and safety laws and regulations or any permits and authorizations required thereunder could subject the Company to fines, corrective action or other sanctions.

Some of the Company’s current and former facilities are the subject of environmental investigations and remediations resulting from historical operations and the release of hazardous substances or other constituents. Some current and former facilities have a history of industrial usage for which investigation and remediation obligations may be imposed in the future or for which indemnification claims may be asserted against the Company. Also, potential future closures or sales of facilities may necessitate further investigation and may result in future remediation at those facilities.

The Company has established reserves for those facilities or issues where liability is probable and the costs are reasonably estimable. The Company believes that the amounts accrued for all of its loss contingencies, and the reasonably possible loss beyond the amounts accrued, are not material to the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows. The Company cannot estimate with certainty other future corrective compliance, investigation or remediation costs. Costs relating to historical usage that the Company considers to be reasonably possible of resulting in liability are not quantifiable at this time. The Company will continue to monitor environmental issues at each of its facilities, as well as regulatory developments, and will revise its accruals, estimates and disclosures relating to past, present and future operations, as additional information is obtained.

Legal Matters

The Company is a party to a number of lawsuits arising in the ordinary conduct of its business. Although the timing and outcome of these lawsuits cannot be predicted with certainty, the Company does not believe that disposition of these lawsuits will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.


NOTE 11 — SEGMENT INFORMATION

The Company reports its results in two reportable segments: paperboard packaging and flexible packaging. These segments are evaluated by the chief operating decision maker based primarily on Income from Operations as adjusted for depreciation and amortization. The Company’s reportable segments are based upon strategic business units that offer different products. The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those described in GPHC’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012.

The paperboard packaging segment is highly integrated and includes a system of mills and plants that produce a broad range of paperboard grades convertible into folding cartons. Folding cartons are used primarily to protect products, such as food, detergents, paper products, beverages, and health and beauty aids, while providing point of purchase advertising. The paperboard packaging reportable segment includes the design, manufacture and installation of packaging machinery related to the assembly of cartons, the production and sale of corrugated medium and kraft paper from paperboard mills in the U.S, and produces paper and heat transfer labels.

The flexible packaging segment produces kraft paper and converts kraft and specialty paper into multi-wall bags, consumer and specialty retail bags and produces flexible packaging and laminations. The multi-wall bags are designed to ship and protect a wide range of industrial and consumer products including fertilizers, chemicals, concrete, and pet and food products. The flexible packaging and laminations are converted from a wide variety of technologically advanced films for use in the food, pharmaceutical and industrial end-markets. Flexible packaging paper is used in a wide range of consumer applications.
