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 paper-based 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 and coated-recycled boxboard. The Company’s customers include many of the most widely recognized companies and brands with prominent market positions in beverage, food, and other consumer products. 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 quality and 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, 2013. 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 when 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, 2013.

Accounts Receivable and Allowances

The Company has entered into various factoring and supply chain financing arrangements, principally at the request of customers, which qualify for sale accounting in accordance with the Transfers and Servicing topic of the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("the Codification"). For the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and September 30, 2013, the Company sold receivables of approximately $330 million and $200 million from the factoring arrangements, respectively. Amounts transferred subject to continuing involvement, which consist principally of collection services, at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, was approximately $63 million and $20 million, respectively.

Equity Secondary Offerings

During the second quarter of 2014, certain shareholders of the Company sold 43.7 million shares of common stock in a secondary public offering at $10.45 per share. The shares were sold by certain affiliates of TPG Capital, L.P. (the "TPG Entities") and certain Coors family trusts and the Adolph Coors Foundation. Following this sale, these shareholders no longer hold shares of the Company's common stock.

During the first quarter of 2014, certain shareholders of the Company sold 30 million shares of common stock in a secondary public offering at $9.85 per share. The shares were sold by TPG Entities, Clayton, Dubilier & Rice Fund V Limited Partnership (the "CD&R Fund") and Old Town, S.A. ("Old Town"). As a result of these actions, the CD&R Fund and Old Town no longer hold shares of the Company. Immediately following the offering, the TPG Entities and certain Coors family trusts and the Adolph Coors Foundation held approximately 13% of shares outstanding.

Following the sale of the multi-wall bag business on June 30, 2014, the Company reviewed its support and overhead structure.  As a result, the Company closed a facility and reduced headcount resulting in a third quarter charge of $4.1 million reflected in Other Special Charges in the above table, consisting primarily of severance costs.

In connection with the Company's strategy to focus on core assets, on June 30, 2014, the Company completed the sale of its multi-wall bag business. The financial impact of this transaction is reflected in Loss (Gain) on Sale of Assets in the above table. Approximately $263 million of assets were disposed of, consisting of net working capital of $75 million, fixed assets of $104 million, goodwill of $8 million and intangible assets of $76 million. In 2013, the multi-wall bag business' net sales were approximately $440 million or approximately 10% of Consolidated Net Sales which were reported in the flexible packaging segment. Assets of approximately $27 million related to a facility that was previously part of the flexible packaging segment were retained by the Company.

On May 23, 2014, the Company completed its acquisition of U.K.-based Benson Group ("Benson"). Charges associated with the acquisition are reflected in Charges Associated with Business Combinations in the above table. For more information regarding the acquisition of Benson, see "Note 3-Acquisition".

On February 3, 2014, the Company completed the sale of its labels business. The financial impact of this transaction is reflected in Loss (Gain) on Sale of Assets in the above table. Approximately $47 million of goodwill and $17 million of intangible assets were written off relating to the sale. The labels business was part of the Paperboard Packaging segment and accounted for approximately 1% of Consolidated Net Sales.

 
Adoption of New Accounting Standards

Effective January 1, 2014, the Company adopted revised guidance on the Income Taxes topic of the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("the FASB Codification"), which requires an entity to present an unrecognized tax benefit, or a portion of an unrecognized tax benefit, in the financial statements as a reduction to the deferred tax asset for a net operating loss carryforward, or similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward. The adoption did not have any impact on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Effective January 1, 2014, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-08, Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity. The amendments in the ASU change the criteria for reporting discontinued operations and requires new disclosures for discontinued operations and for significant disposals of components of an entity that do not qualify for discontinued operations reporting. The adoption impacted the presentation of the consolidated financial statements related to disposals in 2014.

New Accounting Pronouncements

On May 28, 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Adoption of ASU No. 2014-09 requires that an entity recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The amendments in this ASU are effective for the annual reporting period beginning after December 15, 2016 and early adoption is not permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adoption on the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

On June 19, 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-12, Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period. The amendments in the ASU clarify the proper method of accounting for share-based payments when the terms of an award provide that a performance target could be achieved after the requisite service period. ASU 2014-12 is effective for all entities for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2015 and interim period within those annual periods and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adoption on the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

NOTE 3 — ACQUISITION

On May 23, 2014, the Company acquired Benson, a leading food, retail and health care packaging company in the United Kingdom. Under the terms of the transaction, the Company paid $190.7 million in an all cash transaction funded with existing cash and borrowings under the Company's revolving line of credit. Benson operated four folding carton facilities that converted approximately 80,000 tons of paperboard annually into folding cartons for the food, beverage and healthcare products industries. The acquisition and associated goodwill are included in the paperboard packaging segment. This transaction is herein referred to as the "Benson Acquisition".

The purchase price of the Benson Acquisition 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 once the third party valuation is completed. Management believes that the purchase price attributable to goodwill represents the benefits expected as a result of the acquisition, as the Benson Acquisition was made to continue to grow the European food and beverage business, to expand the Company's presence in store brand packaging and to further optimize the Company's supply chain footprint. The Company incurred and expensed transaction costs of $4.2 million related to the Benson Acquisition.

The Company does not expect the goodwill recorded to be deductible for tax purposes. The preliminary purchase price allocation is as follows:

NOTE 4 — DEBT

On June 16, 2014, GPII entered into Amendment No. 3 to the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with a syndicate of lenders consisting primarily of commercial banks (the "Credit Agreement"). This Amendment No. 3 increased the revolving credit facilities under which borrowings may be made in Sterling or Euro by €63.0 million (approximately $86 million).

(a)
In accordance with its debt agreements, the Company’s availability under its revolving credit facilities has been reduced by the amount of standby letters of credit issued of $26.2 million as of September 30, 2014. 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 mid-2015 unless extended.

The Credit Agreement and the indenture governing the 7.875% Senior Notes due 2018 and the 4.75% Senior Notes due 2021 (the “Indenture”) limit the Company’s ability to incur additional indebtedness. Additional covenants contained in the Credit Agreement and the Indenture, 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 Indenture, engage in mergers or consolidations, change the business conducted by the Company and its subsidiaries, and engage in certain transactions with affiliates. Such restrictions 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 September 30, 2014, the Company was in compliance with the covenants in the Credit Agreement and the Indenture.

NOTE 5 — STOCK INCENTIVE PLANS

As of May 21, 2014, the Company has one active equity compensation plan from which new grants may be made, the Graphic Packaging Holding Company 2014 Omnibus Stock and Incentive Compensation Plan (the “2014 Plan”). Prior to the approval of the 2014 Plan and the expiration of the Graphic Packaging Holding Company Amended and Restated 2004 Stock and Incentive Compensation Plan (the "2004 Plan"), the Company made all new grants under the 2004 Plan. Awards granted under the 2004 Plan and the 2014 Plan generally vest and expire in accordance with terms established at the time of grant. Shares issued pursuant to awards under the 2004 Plan and 2014 Plan 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

The Company’s 2014 and 2004 Plans permit the grant of stock awards, restricted stock and restricted stock units (“RSUs”). Generally, all RSUs vest and become payable in 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 as part of their compensation for service on the Board are unrestricted on the grant date.

Data concerning RSUs granted in the first nine months of 2014 is as follows:

Employer Contributions

The Company made contributions of $17.5 million and $31.8 million to its pension plans during the first nine months of 2014 and 2013, respectively. The Company expects to make contributions of $40 to $60 million for the full year 2014. During 2013, the Company made $51.5 million of contributions to its pension plans.

The Company made postretirement health care benefit payments of $1.6 million and $1.7 million during the first nine months of 2014 and 2013, respectively. The Company estimates its postretirement health care benefit payments for the full year 2014 to be approximately $3 million. During 2013, the Company made postretirement health care benefit payments of $1.8 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.

For more information regarding the Company’s financial instruments and fair value measurement, see “Note 9 — Financial Instruments, Derivatives and Hedging Activities” and Note 10 — Fair Value Measurement” of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company’s 2013 Form 10-K.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)



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 September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company had interest rate swap agreements outstanding with a notional amount of $560.0 million. The swap agreements, under which the Company will pay fixed rates of 0.45% 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 nine months of 2014 and 2013, 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. Such contracts are designated as cash flow hedges. 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 has hedged 81%, 75%, and 50% of its expected natural gas usage for the remainder of 2014, 2015, and 2016, respectively.

During the first nine months of 2014 and 2013, 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 Loss and gains/losses related to these contracts are recognized in Other Income, Net when the anticipated transaction affects income.

At September 30, 2014, multiple forward exchange contracts existed that expire on various dates through 2014. Those purchased forward exchange contracts outstanding at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, when aggregated and measured in U.S. dollars at contractual rates at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 had notional amounts totaling $15.0 million and $65.3 million, respectively.

No amounts were reclassified to earnings during the first nine months of 2014 or during 2013 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 September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, multiple foreign currency forward exchange contracts existed, with maturities ranging up to three months. Those foreign currency exchange contracts outstanding at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, when aggregated and measured in U.S. dollars at exchange rates at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, had net notional amounts totaling $56.0 million and $32.5 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 uses market price quotations obtained from independent derivatives brokers, corroborated with information obtained from independent pricing service providers.

As of September 30, 2014, the Company had a gross derivative liability of $4.6 million and a gross derivative asset of $1.5 million, primarily related to interest rate, foreign currency and commodity contracts. As of September 30, 2014, 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 values of the Company’s other financial assets and liabilities at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 approximately equal the carrying values reported on the Consolidated Balance Sheets except for Total Debt. The fair value of the Company’s Total Debt (excluding capital leases) was $2,087.5 million and $2,267.6 million as compared to the carrying amounts of $2,075.6 million and $2,248.0 million as of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively. The fair value of the Company’s Total Debt, including the Senior Notes, are based on quoted market prices (Level 2 inputs).

The estimated fair value of the Company's assets held for sale at September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 was $9.5 million and $6.6 million , respectively. The value is recorded at the lower of book value or fair value, less costs to sell. Fair value was determined using the market approach based on the value of similar assets (Level 3 inputs).

At September 30, 2014, the Company expects to reclassify approximately $2.5 million of loss 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. The Company owned 87% of GFP and consolidated its results of operations with the remaining 13% of GFP owned by CVI.

On May 30, 2014, the Company acquired the remaining 13% of GFP from CVI. Prior to May 30, 2014, CVI's noncontrolling interest in GFP was recorded as Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests in the Company's financial statements.

At September 30, 2014, the book value of the redeemable noncontrolling interests was determined as follows:

Prior to May 30, 2014, the calculation of fair value (a Level 3 measurement) of the redeemable noncontrolling interest was 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 and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company recognized Income Tax Expense of $39.3 million and $30.9 million, respectively, on Income before Income Taxes and Equity Income of Unconsolidated Entities of $91.9 million and $77.1 million, respectively. The effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 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 impact of the writeoff of nondeductible goodwill in connection with the sale of the labels and multi-wall bag businesses and other discrete items. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company recognized Income Tax Expense of $35.8 million and $70.9 million on Income before Income Taxes and Equity Income of Unconsolidated Entities of $81.0 million and $171.1 million, respectively. The effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 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 $811 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 a 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. Currently, the Company expects to spend approximately $5 million, in aggregate, during 2014 and 2015 to achieve compliance with the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for units at major sources (known as "Boiler MACT"). 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


Prior to the sale of the multi-wall bag business on June 30, 2014, the Company reported its results in two reportable segments: paperboard packaging and flexible packaging.  These segments were 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, 2013.  As a result of the sale of the multi-wall bag business, the Company reevaluated its reportable segments and effective July 1, 2014, the Company reports its results in one reportable segment: paperboard packaging.  Current and prior year results have been reclassified to include the remaining flexible packaging facility that was not sold and corporate in the paperboard packaging segment.

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 and includes several operating segments that have been aggregated into one reportable segment. 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. As previously disclosed, the Company sold its labels business as of February 3, 2014 which was part of the paperboard packaging segment.

The previously reported flexible packaging segment produced kraft paper and converted kraft and specialty paper into products which included multi-wall bags, such as pasted valve, pinched bottom, sewn open mouth and woven polypropylene and coated paper. Coated paper products included institutional french fry packaging, barrier pouch rollstock and freezer paper. Key end-markets included food and agriculture, building and industrial materials, chemicals, minerals and pet food. Flexible packaging paper is used in a wide range of consumer applications.

NOTE 15 — GUARANTOR CONDENSED CONSOLIDATING FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
This disclosure is required because certain subsidiaries are guarantors of GPII's debt securities. These consolidating financial statements reflect GPHC and GPC (collectively the "Parent”); GPII, the Subsidiary Issuer; and the Subsidiary Guarantors, which consist of all material 100% owned subsidiaries of GPII other than its foreign subsidiaries; and the nonguarantor subsidiaries (herein referred to as “Nonguarantor Subsidiaries”). The Nonguarantor Subsidiaries include all of GPII's foreign subsidiaries and the subsidiaries of GFP. Separate complete financial statements of the Subsidiary Guarantors are not presented because the guarantors are jointly and severally, fully and unconditionally liable under the guarantees. As of June 30, 2014, the assets retained from the sale of the multi-wall bag business that was previously part of the flexible packaging segment were transferred from Combined Nonguarantor Subsidiaries to Subsidiary Issuer, see "Note 1- General Information".
