RockTenn expects fiscal second quarter earnings of between $0.35 and $.40 per diluted share and adjusted earnings of between $0.85 and $.90 per diluted share.
The primary factors reducing fiscal second quarter adjusted earnings per diluted share compared to the fiscal first quarter adjusted earnings per diluted share are the impact of approximately 149,000 additional tons of economic and maintenance downtime at its containerboard mills, including approximately 30,000 tons from the previously announced closure of the Matane mill, the acceleration to the fiscal second quarter from the fiscal third quarter of a scheduled maintenance outage at RockTenn’s Demopolis, Alabama bleached paperboard mill, and lower pricing for export containerboard.
