Section 2 – Financial Information

 

Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On March 4, 2015, Greif, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release (the “Earnings Release”) announcing the financial results for its first quarter ended January 31, 2015. The full text of the Earnings Release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

The Earnings Release included the following non-GAAP financial measures (the “non-GAAP Measures”):

 

  (i) operating profit before special items for each of the Company’s business segments, which is equal to that business segment’s operating profit plus that segment’s restructuring charges plus that segment’s acquisition-related costs plus that segment’s non-cash asset impairment charges less timberland gains and less gains on disposal of properties, plants, equipment and businesses, net, as applicable to that segment;

 

  (ii) earnings per diluted class A share of the Company before special items, which is equal to earnings per diluted class A share on the Company plus restructuring charges, plus acquisition-related costs plus non-cash asset impairment charges less timberland gains and less gains on disposal of properties, plants, equipment and businesses, net, each on a consolidated basis;

 

  (iii) operating profit of the Company on a consolidated basis before special items excluding the impact of divestitures and facility closures on a consolidated basis, which is equal to operating profit of the Company plus restructuring charges plus acquisition-related costs plus non-cash asset impairment charges less timberland gains and less gains on disposal of properties, plants, equipment and businesses, net, each on a consolidated basis less the operating profit from divestitures and facility closures, each on a consolidated basis;

 

  (iv) operating profit before special items excluding the impact of divestitures and facility closures for each of the Company’s business segments, which is equal to that business segment’s operating profit plus that segment’s restructuring charges plus that segment’s acquisition-related costs plus that segment’s non-cash asset impairment charges less timberland gains and less gains on disposal of properties, plants, equipment, and businesses, net, as applicable to that segment less the operating profit from divestitures and facility closures, as applicable to that segment;

Management of the Company uses the non-GAAP Measures to evaluate ongoing operations and believes that these non-GAAP Measures are useful to enable investors to perform meaningful comparisons of current and historical performance of the Company. Management of the Company also believes that the non-GAAP Measures provide a more stable platform on which to compare the historical performance of the Company than the most nearly equivalent GAAP data.

As part of the final reconciliation process and analysis associated with filing our Form 10-Q for the first quarter ended January 31, 2015, the Company identified a change in the cash flow presentation of a fixed asset transaction which occurred on the last business day of such quarter. As a result, a reclassification adjustment of approximately $11 million was made between cash flows from operating activities and cash flows from investing activities in the statement of cash flows included in the Form 10-Q. The statement of cash flows that was attached as an appendix to our earnings release has been updated in this Form 8-K filing to reflect this adjustment.
