Compared with the traditional sterilization technology, the process retains more nutrients, uses less energy, and extends the shelf life of processed foods without using preservatives.
Products that provide protection and extend the shelf life of the contents of the package.
These products provide protection from oxygen, moisture, light, odor or other environmental factors by combining different types of plastics and additives into multi-layer plastic packaging. Cast film —
A plastic film that is extruded as a flat plate through a straight slot mold during manufacturing.
Packaging materials and systems for drugs and household chemicals that are difficult for children to open.
At the same time, multi-layer investment die or casting film is squeezed. CSD labels —
Carbonated soft drinks labelExtruded film —
A plastic film made of heated resin by forming a mold
This creates a tube of plastic film, which is then expanded by an internal air column to produce a continuous film Band.
EZ open packaging-
With packaging technology such as removable closure or laser marking, consumers can easily obtain packaging products.
EZ open packaging can be combined with repackaging functions such as plastic zippers to facilitate the storage of packaging materials after opening. Film laminate —
A multi-layer plastic film, made by laminating two or more of them with an adhesive or a molten plastic to achieve a barrier to the contents of the package.
Semi-packaged options available
Provide the customer with the finished packaging used to fill the product and seal/close the packaging for distribution instead of rolling stock.
Use the most common flexible packaging printing process of raised rubber or alternative material images mounted on the printing drum. Forming films —
A flexible plastic film designed to be shaped by a cavity when subjected to heat and vacuum.
The plastic produced by the manufacturing process, the heated plastic is injected into the mold or mold. Multipack —
A film manufactured by an improved extrusion process for packaging and preservation of multi-packaged products such as cans and liquid bottles, replacing corrugated cardboard and cardboard. Narrow-web rolls —
Make a Movie
Within a range where the width is usually less than 1 m, it can be produced in the form of a tube or roller depending on the application.
High temperature cooking packaging-
Multi-layer flexible or rigid packaging capable of withstand heat treatment for sterilization, similar to the process used for pressure cooking.
The food is packed and sealed and then heated to about 250 degrees F at high pressure.
The process extends the shelf life of food at normal temperature.
A form of packaging, when the contents of the package are removed, the shape of the package is retained.
Bottle, tray and flap packaging are examples of rigid packaging options. Rollstock —
The main form of flexible packaging materials delivered to customers.
The finished film wrapped around the core is converted in the process of the end user factory, which forms, fills and seals the product packaging to be delivered to the customer.
High quality printing process using metal engraved cylinders.
A extruded packaging film that cools, reheats, and stretches at temperatures close to its melting point.
The film is formed by shrinking around the product through the application of heat treatment, and if an oxygen blocking material is added, it can be a blocking product. Professional Film
Plastic film for non-production
Food applications, usually used as secondary packaging or incorporated into a film structure, to give specific physical and/or performance properties.
Packaging materials and prefabricated packaging systems supporting the sterilization process, providing physical and sterile barrier protection through global distribution, as well as demonstration of life-saving medical devices and technologies in sterile operating rooms.
Thermoforming plastic packaging-
Packaging formed by applying heat to the film to shape it into a tray or cavity, and then sealing the flat film on top of the package after filling.
Vacuum skin packaging (\"VSP\")—

Risk factors the following factors and the factors described elsewhere in table 10
K, or in other documents submitted by the company to the Securities and Exchange Commission, may adversely affect the Company\'s consolidated financial position, operating results or cash flow.
Other factors that we do not currently know or that we do not currently consider important may also affect our business operations and financial results. Raw materials —
The increase or shortage of raw material costs may adversely affect our operating results.
As manufacturers, our sales and profitability depend on the availability and cost of raw materials, which are affected by price fluctuations.
In the past, inflation and other increases in raw material costs have occurred, and this is expected to happen again, and our performance depends to a certain extent on our ability to reflect cost changes in product sales prices.
We usually increase the sales price through the contract pass and successfully manage the impact of the rising cost of raw materials
Through mechanisms with most of our customers.
In addition to terrorist activities and government regulation of environmental emissions, natural disasters such as hurricanes may have a negative impact on the production or delivery capacity of our raw material suppliers in the chemical and paper industry.
This may result in an increase in the cost of raw materials or a shortage of supplies, if the increase in costs continues continuously for multiple periods, or in the case of a shortage, this may have a negative impact on our profitability if we are unable to obtain raw materials from other sources. Key customers —
The loss of key customers or a significant reduction in sales to these customers may significantly reduce our revenue.
Our customer base includes key (Generally large)
Customers who are important to our success.
The company\'s response to continued and increased customer integration and market competition may result in a lower-than-expected net pricing of the company\'s products.
In addition, key customers can ask for more favorable contract terms if they are under financial pressure, which may put additional pressure on our profit margin and cash flow.
In addition, our success depends on our ability to respond in a timely manner to changes in customer product requirements and market acceptance of our products.
We must produce products that meet customer quality, performance and price expectations.
Changes in customer preferences for our products will also affect the demand for our products.
The decline in demand for our products may adversely affect our business, financial position and operational results.
The situation of foreign countries and changes in foreign exchange rates may significantly reduce the operating results we report.
We have business all over the world.
In 2015, about 28 percentage points of our sales were generated by entities operating outside the United States.
Currency fluctuations can cause losses in transactions and translations.
In addition, our income and net income may be adversely affected by economic conditions, the political situation and the changing laws and regulations of foreign countries, because we have no control over these laws and regulations. Interest rate-
Raising interest rates may reduce the operating results we report.
In 2015, we borrowed about $967 at variable interest rates. 2 million (
This includes $0. 4 billion in fixed-rate notes that have been effectively converted into variable-rate debt by using fixed-rate and variable-rate swaps).
Fluctuations in interest rates increase borrowing costs and adversely affect operating results.
Therefore, increase in the short term
The regular rate will directly affect the interest we pay.
For every 1% increase in variable interest rates, our annual interest expenditure will increase by about $9.
7 million of $967.
2 million of the floating rate bonds are not ofDecember31, 2015.
Acquisition and divestiture
We may not be able to successfully integrate the business we acquired or limit the ongoing costs associated with the business we divested.
In the past, we have made a large number of acquisitions and regularly considered new ones, which we believe will provide meaningful opportunities for our future business growth and performance improvement.
The acquired business may not be able to meet the level of revenue, profit, productivity or other performance we expect.
The acquisition involves special risks, including but not limited to potential assumptions of unexpected liabilities and unexpected expenses, as well as difficulties in integrating the acquisition business.
While we believe our acquisition will improve our competitive power and financial performance in the future, we cannot guarantee the success of the acquisition.
We also carry out strategic divestiture from time to time, and we may agree to compensate the acquirer for certain liability arising from our previous business.
7 Information technology-
The failure of our information technology system may have a negative impact on our business.
We rely on information technology to record and process customers\' orders, manufacture and ship products in a timely manner and to maintain the financial accuracy of our business records.
We are implementing global enterprise resource planning (\"ERP\")
The system will redesign and deploy new processes and common information systems in our factory within a few years.
This system will bring the expected benefits, which is impossible to determine.
Failure to achieve our goals may affect our ability (1)
Handle transactions accurately and efficiently2)
Align with changing trade needs, which can lead to customer churn.
In addition, failure to deliver the application on time, or to anticipate the necessary preparation and training needs, can lead to business disruption, loss of customers and revenue.
Finally, failure or abandonment of any part of the ERP system may result in writing-
Deducted from part or all of the cost of capitalization of the project.
Our information systems may also be infiltrated by external parties or abused by employees or other internal personnel who intend to extract information, destroy information or disrupt business processes.
This unauthorized access may undermine our business and may result in loss of assets, which may result in loss of customer confidence and business and cause us to spend time and expenses in remedial workLitigation —
Litigation or regulatory developments may adversely affect our business operations and financial performance.
We will now and in the future participate in litigation, regulatory investigations, and government and other legal proceedings arising from the normal process of our business.
As our global business expands, we face more uncertainty about the regulatory environment.
The timing of the final resolution of litigation, regulatory investigations, and government and other legal proceedings is often uncertain.
In addition, the possible outcome or resolution of these proceedings may include adverse judgments or settlements, any of which may require substantial payments.
See \"legal action\" in item 3 of this year\'s report on Form10 \"-K.
Goodwill and other intangible assets
An important article.
The reduction in goodwill and/or other intangible assets will have a significant adverse effect on the operating results and net worth reported by us.
We review our impairment goodwill balance at least once a year using the business valuation method permitted under current accounting standards.
These methods include the use of weighting-
Calculate the average capital cost of the present value of the expected future cash flow of our reporting unit.
Future changes in capital costs, expected cash flow, or other factors may result in damage to our goodwill and/or other intangible assets, resulting in non-
Cash is charged based on the results of the operation to note these assets in an impairment amount.
In addition, if there is a change in our business strategy, or if external conditions adversely affect our business operations, we may need to record impairment costs for goodwill or intangible assets, this will lead to a decrease in assets and a decrease in net operating results.
If a significant write-down is required, the cost will have a significant adverse effect on the operating results and net worth reported by us.
We have identified the valuation of intangible assets as a key accounting estimate.
See \"Management\'s Discussion and Analysis of the financial position and results of operations --
Key accounting estimates and judgments
Intangible assets and goodwill included in Item 7 of this year\'s reportK.
Patent and proprietary technology
Our success depends on our ability to develop and successfully introduce new products and acquire and retain intellectual property rights.
Our ability to develop and successfully market new products and to develop, acquire and retain the necessary intellectual property rights is critical to our continued success but cannot be reasonably guaranteed.
Funding status of pension plans
The recognition of pension liabilities may lead to a significant reduction in shareholders\' equity.
On September 2013, the company approved amendments relating to certain fixed-benefit pension plans that came into effect from December 31, 2013.
As at December 31, 2013, the amendment froze all further benefits accrued items for all persons entitled to these program benefits.
Therefore, the final average wage formula will not reflect future salary growth or additional services after December 31, 2013.
While the amendment reduces some of the risks associated with future service costs, the risks associated with continued debt restructuring remain
Measurement and planning of asset valuations.
Current accounting standards issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Committee (\"FASB\")
Ask the balance sheet to confirm the funding status of our fixed benefits Pension and post-retirement benefits program.
If the fair value of our pension plan assets is reduced on future reporting days, or if the discount rate used to calculate the expected benefit obligation is reduced (\"PBO\")
As of that date, we will be required to record incremental changes in PBO that exceed the fair value of the asset as a reduction in shareholder equity.
Taxes and fees will represent future expenses and will be recorded directly as a cumulative decrease in other consolidated income components of the exercise rights.
While we cannot at present estimate the future funding status of our pension liabilities with certainty, we believe that if the market value of the assets or the discount rate used to calculate the pension liabilities falls sharply, this adjustment may significantly reduce the rights and interests of our shareholders.
A significant reduction in shareholder equity may affect our compliance with the debt contract or may result in a decline in our credit rating, this may also adversely affect the results of our financial operations and liquidity for our future borrowing costs and speeds.
We have identified pension assumptions as key accounting estimates.
See \"Management\'s Discussion and Analysis of the financial position and results of operations --
Key accounting estimates and judgments
\"Pension costs\" and \"-
Sensitivity analysis of pension assumptions contained in Item 7 of the annual report on Form10K. Credit rating —
The downgrade of our credit rating may increase our borrowing costs and have a negative impact on our financial position and operational results.
In addition to using cash provided by operations, we also issue commercial Notes on a regular basis to meet our shortfall
Demand for liquidity.
Our credit rating is important to our ability to issue commercial notes at a preferential rate.
The downgrade of our credit rating may increase borrowing costs, increase the difference between the current market interest rate we pay for commercial Notes or the fees associated with bank credit financing.
Our restructuring activities and cost savings programs may not be able to achieve the desired results.
We have and will continue to carry out restructuring activities and cost reduction initiatives to optimize our asset base, improve operational efficiency and save costs.
We are not sure whether we can complete these initiatives as planned or whether the estimated operational efficiency or cost savings for these activities will be fully realized or maintained over time.
In addition, we may not be able to successfully migrate production from one facility to another.
Import and Export-
We are subject to the import and export controls of the government, which may hold us accountable or impair our competitive capacity in the international market.
Certain of our products are subject to export control and can only be exported with the exception of the required export license or export license.
If we do not comply with export licenses, customs regulations, economic sanctions and other laws, we may be subject to substantial civil and criminal penalties, including fines for the company and imprisonment for the responsible employees and managers, as well as possible loss of import and export privileges.
In addition, if our distributor fails to obtain an appropriate import, export or re-export
Export licenses or licenses, we may also be adversely affected by reputational damage and penalties.
The necessary export license to obtain a specific sale may be time-
Consumption, may lead to delay or loss of sales opportunities.
In addition, export control laws and economic sanctions prohibit the shipment of certain products to countries, governments and individuals where the embargo or sanctions are imposed.
When we train employees to comply with these regulations, we cannot guarantee that there will be no violations, whether intentional or unintentional.
Any such goods may have negative consequences, including government investigations, penalties, fines, civil and criminal sanctions, and damage to reputation.
Import and export regulations, economic sanctions or any changes in the relevant legislation, changes in the implementation or scope of existing regulations, or changes in the state, government, individual or technology to which these regulations are directed, this may lead to a decline in our ability to export or sell products to existing or potential international customers.
Any restrictions on our ability to export or sell products can adversely affect our business, financial position and operational results. ITEM 1B —
Unresolved employee reviews. 9ITEM 2 —

The company involved a number of lawsuits that came with its business, including environmental litigation.
Related litigation and daily litigation arising from the daily business process.
Although it is difficult to predict the final outcome of these cases, the company believes that, in addition to the circumstances discussed below, any final liability will not have a significant adverse effect on the Company\'s consolidated financial position or operational results.
The company is a potential responsible party (\"PRP\")
Under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 (
Commonly known as \"Super Fund \")
Similar state and foreign laws are related to 17 websites across the United States and one in Brazil.
These proceedings were filed by the US Environmental Protection Agency and certain state and foreign environmental agencies at different times starting in 1983.
Superfunds and similar state and foreign laws provide for investigation and remedial liability for the release of hazardous substances in the environment.
Under these regulations, no matter what fault, joint and several liability can be assumed for the waste generator, site owner and operator, and others.
Although these regulations may require companies to eliminate or mitigate the environmental impact of different locations, to carry out remedial work at these locations, or to pay damages for loss of use and non-use losses
The value of use, the company expects its liability in these proceedings to be limited to money losses.

Tax dispute in Brazil
Amortization of goodwill for the period from October 2013, Ltda Dixie Toga (\"Dixie Toga\")
Received an income tax assessment for Brazil\'s tax year from 2009 to 2011, involving amortization of certain goodwill arising from the acquisition of Dixie Toga.
The income tax assessed over the years is about $9.
8 million, translated into the United StatesS.
The exchange rate of the dollar is 2015.
The company expects that tax inspections in the years after 2011 will include a similar assessment as the company continues to claim tax benefits related to amortization of goodwill.
Final adverse solutions to these assessments, including interest and fines, may be critical to the Company\'s consolidated operating results and/or cash flow.
10. the company\'s legal and tax counsel advised the company that its position on deductions was permissible under the Brazilian tax law.
The company questioned such non-subsidies and believed that such tax benefits would most likely continue in their entirety, so no liabilities were recorded.
If the matter is not resolved at the administrative appeal level, the company intends to file a lawsuit.
The final result will not be determined until the Brazilian tax appeal process is completed, which may take several years.
At this time, the company believes that the final solution of the assessment will not have a significant impact on the consolidated financial statements of the company.
