Pro - Pac Packaging Limited Annual General Meeting 20 2 1 5 | P a g e Legal/49775797_1 CHAIRMAN’S ADDRESS At last year’s AGM, I said that 2021 would be a transformational year for Pro - Pac Packaging and I am delighted to be addressing you today with an update. The 2021 financial year was indeed transformational for Pro - Pac. During the year, we complet ed several major strategic initiatives that we’d previously identified, and made significant investments in new technology, capacity and capabilities so that we are positioned for profitable and sustainable organic growth. We successfully achieved the clos ure of the Chester Hill factory and commenced the implementation of new enterprise resource planning – ERP - technology. We added a new 7 - layer extruder and laminator, and commissioned a new HD extrusion line in the Flexibles business. We also added a ne w blow moulding machine in our Rigid business. We established Centres of Excellence at sites in Melbourne ’s South East for printing and converting. And we acquired Supreme Packaging as part of our strategy to achieve profitable revenue growth in existin g and adjacent verticals. Importantly, this growth has all been internally funded, thanks to our strong cash flow generation, and the work completed in recent years to repair and strengthen the company’s balance sheet. In FY20 we were pleased to re - instat e the dividend for shareholders. For FY21, with balance sheet flexibility and the expected uplift in annualised earnings from cost savings, we increased returns to shareholders, declaring a fully franked final dividend of 0.3 cents per share, and increasin g the total dividend payable for the year ended 30 June 2021 to 0.55 cents per share, an increase from 0.4 cents in FY20. This pace of change at Pro - Pac Packaging would have been demanding in any circumstances. As it is, this transformation has been achie ved against a backdrop of COVID - 19. It is to the credit of the leadership team, led by CEO Tim Welsh, that these initiatives were achieved . Pro - Pac Packaging Limited Annual General Meeting 20 2 1 6 | P a g e Legal/49775797_1 Tim and the senior management team have created a leaner, more profitable business with a strong foundation for growth. In the year ahead we will focus on driving profitable revenue growth, continuing our operational transformation, and making further advances in our innovation and sustainability capabilities. Profitable revenue growth is expected bo th from organic and inorganic opportunities: organic growth from converting the Group’s strong sales pipeline and investing in additional capacity and technologies, and inorganic growth, where it makes sense, in existing and adjacent market segments. Your Board and management team have a disciplined approach to capital investment, ensuring any expenditure is focused on growth initiatives, and supported by well managed delivery and governance oversight. We will be highly disciplined in assessing potent ial acquisitions, looking for complementary earnings accretive acquisitions that will enhance scale and capability . In addition to our priority of profitable revenue growth, we remain focused on the operational transformation of the business. The closure of Chester Hill, together with our investment in our ERP, will drive a step change in our cost base into the future by providing a stable and efficient platform for ongoing growth. Board Our Board has been unchanged for the last 12 months, however as we a nnounced in June, Marina Go will be retiring from the Board at the conclusion of this meeting to focus on her other commitments. I’d like to thank Marina for her commitment and contribution to Pro - Pac over the past three years and wish her well. We are we ll progressed in our search for Marina’s replacement and have assessed some excellent candidates. We expect to appoint and announce a new director early in 2022. Share consolidation You will have seen from the Notice of Meeting that Resolution 5 involves a proposed share consolidation: that each ten Pro - Pac shares be converted to 1 Pro - Pac share going forward. Your Board acknowledges that Pro - Pac’s share price does not yet reflect the very considerable progress made across the group, in its operations and its profitability. We continue to engage with both existing and prospective shareholders to update them on the Pro - Pac story and to investing in the equity capital markets’ understanding of our business. The Board has determined that Pro - Pac would be b etter served by having fewer, more valuable shares on issue and has accordingly proposed this consolidation. I will take any questions on this when we come to Resolution 5. Acknowledgments On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank you, o ur shareholders, for your on - going support of Pro - Pac. I’d also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of Pro - Pac’s leadership team and employees during another busy and challenging year. We thank them all for their commit ment and hard work in support of the company and its strategic objectives. Pro - Pac Packaging Limited Annual General Meeting 20 2 1 7 | P a g e Legal/49775797_1 I am now delighted to invite our CEO and Managing Director, Tim Welsh, to talk to you about our Financial Year 2021 performance, our strategy, the progress we’ve made with our busin ess priorities, and the business outlook before we address the formal items on today’s agenda. CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER’S ADDRESS Thank you, Chairman. Good morning, everyone, and once again, thank you for joining us today. I’d like to begin by acknowledging the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet today. I would also like to pay my respects to Elders past and present. Introduction My name is Tim Welsh, and I am the Managing Director and CEO of Pro - Pac Packaging . I would like to start my address to you today b y thanking three particular groups for their contribution to Pro - Pac this year. Firstly, I would like to thank ou r customers. We are pro ud that we are trusted to supply essential goods and ser vices to our valued customer base and appreciate them having worked with us to ensure we met their requirements during challenging times . W ith our focus on sustainability, we look forward to what we can achieve working in partnership with our customers on this important initiative. Second ly , I would like to thank our Pro - Pac team of employee s for their efforts in another challenging year, impacted by COVID - 19 and the broader effects of the pandemic. Our employees have shown great tenacity and resilience Pro - Pac Packaging Limited Annual General Meeting 20 2 1 8 | P a g e Legal/49775797_1 throughout the pandemic and they have found new ways to work together while keeping each other safe. They have also delivered on another year of transformation, and I want to thank them for everything they have given the company this year. Thirdly , I would like to thank our supplier partners, who have played an invaluable role in working with us to ensure continuity of supply for our customers throughout the year and have worked co - operatively with us to navigate shipping and supply challenges that have been a feature of global supply chains this year. Pro - Pac is fortunate to enjoy positive, collaborative relationships with all its stakeholders and we thank them for their commitment to our shared success. Building a safety culture Safety is at the forefront of everything we do at Pro - Pac and we remain relentless in our focus on Zero Harm, a culture that prioritises employee safety at all times. The establishment of a health and safety team two years ago continues to prioritise safe systems of work and lifesaving standards across every site. This lea dership and our continued focus have achieved strong results reducing our total reportable injury frequency rates by 36% in FY21. We remain committed to further reductions as we build a disciplined safety culture throughout the group. W hilst the impacts of COVID - 19 were well handled and created manageable disruptions during FY21 , it is clear that COVID - 19 will continue to present a risk to continuity of operations and economic strength in our communities. With that in mind, our senior management team remains vigilant in proactively managing the risks associated with COVID - 19 to ensure we prioritise the safety, health, and wellbeing of our people . I ’ll talk more about the recent disruptions from COVID - 19 i n a moment . As packaging is an essential industry, Pro - Pac remained operational throughout the various COVID - 19 lock downs across the States and did not receive the federal government’s JobKeeper allowance. Pro - Pac Packaging Limited Annual General Meeting 20 2 1 9 | P a g e Legal/49775797_1 Financial performance FY21 was a year of tran sformation for Pro - Pac, during which we achieved strong financial and operating results while keeping our people safe. Margins across the business continue to improve due to our portfolio improvement programs and disciplined raw materials management. It w as pleasing to be able to report an underlying profit of $13.2 million, up 29%, for the FY21 year. Another point of note in our financial performance is that we have maintained a strong balance sheet. While net debt increased slightly year on year to $51 million as at 30 June 2021, this is after funding a significant investment of $14.5 million in transformational projects across the group, and the $2.7 million acquisition of Supreme Packaging. Our strong cash flow generation has allow ed us to invest in achieving this transformation and has enabled us to carry increased inventory as a preventative measure to ensure continuity of supply to customers where there are shipping challenges or supply chain issues as a result of the COVID - 19 pa ndemic. At the same time, we have continued to reward shareholders via our year end fully franked dividend of 0.3 cents per share, which took the full year fully franked dividend to 0.55 cents per share, an increase of 37.5% on FY20. Transformation progress In FY21, we embarked on several significant and transformational projects, the execution of which has been commendable in challenging operating conditions. Firstly, we completed the closure of our manufacturing facility in Chester H ill, New South Wales. Pro - Pac Packaging Limited Annual General Meeting 20 2 1 10 | P a g e Legal/49775797_1 We also established Centres of Excellence for printing and conversion at the Dandenong Industrial Precinct, Victoria. This enabled the cost - effective integration of Supreme Packaging and the printing assets from the Chester Hill site. In future, we anticipate these Centres of Excellence will facilitate efficient future organic growth and a low integration cost for potential acquisition synergies. Through these consolidated Centres of Excellence, we also expect to optimise our investme nt in automation and lower cost production. We also returned the Industrial Specialty Packaging business unit to profitability. And we continued our important investment in Project Symphony, a technology - led transformation of our operating model. With the major restructuring project of the Chester Hill site closure now complete , we expect annuali s ed operating cost savings of $7 m million from this initiative . Our investment in new technology and capacity is enabling a solid platform from which to deliver profitable organic growth. We’re already seeing evidence of this with early customer wins in key target sectors and product lines. Overall, we have created a more efficient and capable business with a solid foundati on for growth, and we are continuing our transformation with key FY22 strategic initiatives to drive further growth and improve efficiency. Strategy I’d like to spend a few minutes to update you on our strategic priorities for FY22. In August we identi fied four key strategic priorities. First, an unrelenting focus on profitable revenue growth. Following the work we have undertaken in recent years to reposition our portfolio, we have focused our business development efforts on pursuing higher value - add and higher margin products. We now have an increasing qualified pipeline of highly attractive opportunities, and our priority is to use our onshore manufacturing capabilities and expertise to convert this pipeline to profitable revenue. Pro - Pac Packaging Limited Annual General Meeting 20 2 1 11 | P a g e Legal/49775797_1 As evidence of our commitment to profitable revenue growth, we have made strategic investments in additional capacity and technologies to optimise manufacturing efficiency and support the growth pipeline in high value FMCG segments. In the year ahead, we expect to extract full value from the new assets we acquired and commissioned in FY21, such as our new 7 - layer extruder and laminator, our new HD extrusion line, and our new blow moulding machines. Secondly, we remain focused on our operational transformation to continue t o lower costs across the organisation and create the most efficient platform for profitable growth. Establishing the Centres of Excellence in conjunction with the Chester Hill site exit was a key part of this transformation. We are also making strong prog ress with the implementation of our ERP across supply chain management , starting with in our Flexibles business. This ERP will be transformational for Pro - Pac, standardi s ing processes across the organisation, and bringing enhanced transparency into all ope rations. Our third strategic priority is innovation. We believe there are real benefits to be had for our customers and our communities from an unconstrained approach to innovation that involves everyone. During the last financial year, we were delighted to welcome Stephanie Thoo to Pro - Pac as the Head of Innovation. Stephanie came to Pro - Pac with a specific remit to drive a culture of innovation across the business. Pro - Pac is already a leader in transforming redundant plastics into innovative high perfor ming and sustainable products such as our engineered railway sleeper, Duratrack, which has recently achieved type approval. We are committed to expanding our investment in technical resources and best in class equipment and technology to accelerate the production of innovative and sustainable products. Other near - term priorities include expanding the deployment of Duratrack an d developing new recycling capabilities to lead the circular economy in flexible and rigid plastic packaging recycling. Finally, sustainability. We are committed to playing a leading role within the circular economy, working closely with our suppliers and customers to embed sustainable practices across the business and our industry. We know sustainability is a critical issue for our industry and we are currently revising our company sustainability charter, complete with measurable targets. We have formed a board ESG committee and look forward to updating you in in due course. Pro - Pac Packaging Limited Annual General Meeting 20 2 1 12 | P a g e Legal/49775797_1 Business Outlook As we approach the end of our first half, we are encouraged to see continu ing improvement within our Industrial Speciality Packaging business and note some exciting new revenue wins within our Flexibles business . There is clear evidence that our focus on top line growth in that business is starting to yield results. However, t he trading environment remains dynamic. With the NSW and Victorian economies now out of lock - down, we are seeing healthy demand, particularly in the FMCG sector . While this demand is encouraging, d uring the first half of the financial year, we have exper ienced 3 major impacts on the Pro - Pac business: • Firstly , s ignificant impacts on global supply chains . C ontainer freight and resin supply has become increasingly constrained with associated significant increases in costs. To address this, we have introduced a freight surcharge and price increases. These increases are being progressively implemented across our businesses. • Secondly, s ite closures . We have experienced d isruption due to site closures following four instances of individual team member s testing positive for COVID - 19. All appropriate safety protocols were followed prior to team members being returned to the sites and I am please d to say that all the impacted employees have made a full recovery . There were additional closures across som e Victorian sites in October following power outages caused by storm activity. These closures have contributed to production backlogs which our teams are working diligently to overcome. • Lastly , increased l abour costs . As a result of COVID - 19 business di sruptions , and commissioning issues associated with the relocation of key assets, labour costs on several sites are substantially above expectations as we service customer demand. While this is creating a temporary cost burden on the business, Pro - Pac's f ocus is on continuity of supply to customers and meeting customer demand. As a consequence of these factors, Pro - Pac expects its 1H22 underlying PBT result to be broadly consistent with its 2H21 underlying PBT result of $7.1m. Pro - Pac Packaging Limited Annual General Meeting 20 2 1 13 | P a g e Legal/49775797_1 We said at the full year re sult in August that we would focus on the elements we can directly control. This remains the case and we are relentlessly focused on our strategic priorities of top line revenue growth in the Flexibles business , operational efficiencies, innovation, and su stainability. We remain confident in our ability to deliver on these priorities in the full year. Conclusion In closing, I would like to thank you, our shareholders, for your continued support. I look forward to delivering continued progress for you into the future. I would also like to take this opportunity to reiterate my thanks to all our management and employees for their commitment, support and their hard work over the last year. I am immensely proud of everything they have achieved this year under c hallenging conditions. I will now hand back to the Chairman to take us through the formal business of today’s meeting.
