Buckeye Foley Plant production lines returns to full production

Jun '10
Buckeye Technologies Inc. announced that its Foley Plant in Perry, Florida, which manufactures specialty wood cellulose and fluff pulp, has returned to full operation. The plant suffered a power failure and outage on June 17.

Buckeye Chairman and CEO John B. Crowe said, "We are pleased that both of the Foley Plant's production lines returned to full production and have been operating at capacity since Wednesday, June 23. We continue to work with our customers to minimize the impact on their operations. The Foley organization responded in an extraordinary manner to bring the plant safely back to full operating capacity."

The Company confirmed that it continues to expect the financial impact of the outage, excluding the effect of any insurance proceeds, to be in the range of a $4 to $5 million reduction in pretax operating income for the quarter ending June 30, and the Company expects earnings to be in the range of 24-27 cents per share for the quarter.

Mr. Crowe further stated, "The Company is working proactively and cooperatively with our insurance carrier to understand and document the extent of the loss. The Company does have property loss and business interruption insurance with a single $2 million deductible and believes this event is a covered loss."

Buckeye, a leading manufacturer and marketer of specialty fibers and nonwoven materials, is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, USA. The Company currently operates facilities in the United States, Germany, Canada, and Brazil. Its products are sold worldwide to makers of consumer and industrial goods.
