MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 4, 2017) - KP Tissue Inc. (KPT) (TSX:KPT) reports the Q1 2017 financial and operational results of KPT and Kruger Products L.P. (KPLP). Kruger Products is Canada's leading manufacturer of quality tissue products for the Consumer market (Cashmere, Purex, SpongeTowels, Scotties, and White Swan) and the Away-From-Home market, and continues to grow in the U.S. Consumer tissue business with the White Cloud® brand and premium private label products. KPT currently holds a 16.1% interest in KPLP. "We are pleased by our Adjusted EBITDA of $33.8 million for the first quarter of 2017, which was mainly driven by the higher contribution from TAD products, despite some headwinds from higher fibre prices," said Mario Gosselin, CEO of KP Tissue and KPLP. "The commercialization of our TAD products is entering its fifth year and we are extremely pleased by the overall performance. For the first quarter, Adjusted EBITDA related to TAD products reached $15.7 million, representing an annualized run rate in excess of our previously stated expectation of $60 million for the TAD project. We now have TAD fully integrated into our business and are proud of the results we have achieved. "While we anticipate higher pulp prices to negatively impact results in the near-term, Adjusted EBITDA for Q2 2017 is expected to increase slightly over Q2 2016. For the remainder of 2017, we look forward to the start-up of our new paper machine in Crabtree, improved performance from the Away-from-Home business and expanded distribution of the White Cloud® brand to select U.S. retailers," concluded Mr. Gosselin. Revenue in Q1 2017 was $289.3 million, compared to $279.7 million in Q1 2016, an increase of $9.6 million or 3.4%. The increase in revenue was primarily due to higher sales volume and favourable selling price increase in Canada, partially offset by the unfavourable impact of foreign exchange on U.S. dollar sales. Cost of sales in Q1 2017 increased to $244.3 million, compared to $240.6 million in Q1 2016, primarily due to higher sales volumes and an increase in USD pulp prices, partially offset by the favourable impact of foreign exchange, cost reduction initiatives and the impact of capital projects. As a percentage of revenue, cost of sales were 84.4% in Q1 2017 compared to 86.0% in Q1 2016. Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses in Q1 2017 were $23.2 million, compared to $21.7 million in Q1 2016. The increase was primarily due to slightly higher advertising and promotion expenses, and slightly higher selling expenses related to higher sales volume, partially offset by the favourable impact of foreign exchange. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses were 8.0% in Q1 2017, compared to 7.8% in Q1 2016. Adjusted EBITDA in Q1 2017 was $33.8 million, compared to $28.1 million in Q1 2016, primarily due to higher sales volume, improved selling prices in Canada, the net positive impact of foreign exchange and the impact of cost reduction initiatives and capital projects, partially offset by higher commodity costs and SG&A costs. Adjusted EBITDA attributable to the sale of TAD products was $15.7 million in Q1 2017 compared to $10.5 million in Q1 2016. Net income in Q1 2017 was $6.9 million, compared to $6.4 million in Q1 2016, primarily due to higher Adjusted EBITDA of $5.7 million and a decrease in interest expense of $0.9 million. These increases were partially offset by an increase in tax expense of $2.1 million, higher depreciation expense of $1.6 million, an increase in the change in amortized cost of Partnership units liability of $1.3 million, and a change in the foreign exchange gain of $1.1 million. Total liquidity, representing cash and cash equivalents and availability under the credit line within covenant limitations, was $88.6 million as of March 26, 2017, compared to $103.5 million as of December 31, 2016. KPT incurred a net loss of $0.6 million in Q1 2017. Included in the net loss was $1.1 million representing KPT's share of KPLP's income. The income was reduced by depreciation expense of $1.5 million related to adjustments to carrying amounts on acquisition and income tax expense of $0.2 million. The Board of Directors of KPT declared a quarterly dividend of $0.18 per share to be paid on July 17, 2017 to shareholders of record at the close of business on June 30, 2017. For additional information please refer to Management's Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) of KPT and KPLP for the first quarter ended March 26, 2017 available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or our website at www.kptissueinc.com.

In the U.S., KPLP manufactures the White Cloud® brand, as well as many private label products. The Away-From-Home division manufactures and distributes high-quality, cost-effective product solutions to a wide range of commercial and public entities. KPLP has approximately 2,500 employees and operates eight FSC® COC-certified (FSC® C-104904) production facilities in North America. For more information visit www.krugerproducts.ca. This press release uses certain non-IFRS financial measures which KPLP believes provide useful information to management of KPLP and the readers of the financial information in measuring the financial performance and financial condition of KPLP. These measures do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. An example of such a measure is Adjusted EBITDA. Beginning with Q4 2015 in accordance with Canadian Securities Administrators Staff Notice 52-306 (Revised), we reference Adjusted EBITDA as a non-IFRS financial measure. This term replaces the previously referenced non-IFRS financial measure EBITDA. Our definition of Adjusted EBITDA is unchanged from our former definition of EBITDA. Accordingly, this change in terminology has no impact on our reported financial results for prior periods. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of operating performance computed in accordance with IFRS and should not be considered as a substitute for operating income, net income or cash flows from operating activities computed in accordance with IFRS. "Adjusted EBITDA" is calculated by KPLP as net income (loss) before (i) interest expense, (ii) income taxes, (iii) depreciation, (iv) amortization, (v) impairment (gain on sale) of non-financial assets, (vi) loss (gain) on disposal of property, plant and equipment, (vii) foreign exchange loss (gain), (viii) costs related to restructuring activities, (ix) changes in amortized cost of Partnership units liability, and (x) one-time costs due to pension revaluations related to past service. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the relevant reported results can be found in the MD&A of KPT and KPLP for the first quarter ended March 26, 2017 available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Certain statements in this press release about KPT's and KPLP's current and future plans, expectations and intentions, results, levels of activity, performance, goals or achievements or any other future events or developments constitute forward-looking statements. The words "may", "will", "would", "should", "could", "expects", "plans", "intends", "trends", "indications", "anticipates", "believes", "estimates", "predicts", "likely" or "potential" or the negative or other variations of these words or other comparable words or phrases, are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

A process for removing phosphorus from wastewater wherein an iron or aluminum salt is added to the wastewater. The iron or aluminum salt results in the precipitation of certain iron or aluminum species that include phosphorus adsorption sites. These iron or phosphorus species are settled and become a part of sludge produced in the course of the wastewater treatment process. By recycling substantial portions of the sludge, the concentration of these iron or aluminum species in the wastewater is increased. This increased concentration results in the presence of large quantities of unused phosphorus adsorption sites that attract and adsorb phosphorus, resulting in phosphorus being removed from the wastewater.


A method of making a rifle scope that utilizes a mounting assembly that includes a longitudinal base plate and a mating, closure housing piece. Separate optical assemblies are attached to the base plate to form an optical train of optical assemblies, extending longitudinally along the base plate, to form an image magnifying assembly. Also, at least some of the optical assemblies include a support and an optical element and an adjustment feature permitting adjustment of position of the optical element relative to the base plate. In the method, at least one of the adjustment features is used to adjust position of one of the optical elements, relative to the base plate, and wherein the optical element is then permanently fixed in place. Finally, the mating, closure housing piece is attached to the longitudinal base plate and the closure housing piece is fastened to the base, thereby forming a rifle scope.
