ELMWOOD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sealed Air Corporation (“Sealed Air” or the “Company”) (NYSE:SEE) today announced that it has extended until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on November 28, 2014 (such date and time, the “New Expiration Date”), its previously announced solicitation of consents (“Consent Solicitation”) from holders of its 8.375% senior notes due 2021 (the “Notes”) to the proposed amendments to the related indenture. Consents with respect to the Notes may be revoked at any time prior to the earlier of (i) the New Expiration Date and (ii) the time at which the requisite consents for the Notes have been received.

Holders who have previously delivered consents do not need to redeliver such consents or take any other action in response to this announcement in order to consent or receive the consent payment upon the successful conclusion of the Consent Solicitation.
This press release is for informational purposes only and is not a solicitation of consents with respect to the Notes. The Consent Solicitation is being made solely by the Consent Solicitation Statement dated November 7, 2014 (the “Consent Solicitation Statement”) and the related consent form, which set forth the complete terms of the Consent Solicitation. Holders are referred to the Consent Solicitation Statement and the related consent form for detailed terms and conditions of the Consent Solicitation, all of which remain unchanged except as set forth in this press release.
Questions concerning the terms of the Consent Solicitation should be directed to J.P. Morgan Securities LLC by calling (800) 245-8812 (U.S. toll-free) or (212) 270-1200 (collect) and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC at (800) 624-1808 (U.S. toll free) or (212) 761-1057 (collect).

The Consent Solicitation is not being made to, and a consent form will not be accepted from or on behalf of, a holder in any jurisdiction in which the making of the Consent Solicitation or the acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the laws of such jurisdiction. In any jurisdiction in which the securities laws or blue sky laws require the Consent Solicitation to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the Consent Solicitation will be deemed to be made on behalf of the Company by J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC or one or more registered brokers or dealers that are appropriately licensed under the laws of such jurisdiction.
