Intertape Polymer Group's Third Quarter Results Reflect Progress

- Company posts first quarterly profit since 2005 - Adjusted EBITDA up 12% quarter-over-quarter to $20.6 million - Sales up 7.9% quarter-over-quarter to $201.9 million - SG&A as a percentage of sales continues to decrease

MONTREAL, QUEBEC and BRADENTON, FLORIDA--(Marketwire - Nov. 12, 2007) - Intertape Polymer Group Inc. (TSX:ITP)(NYSE:ITP) ("Intertape" or the "Company") today released results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2007. All dollar amounts are US denominated unless otherwise indicated.

"Intertape's third quarter showed improvement in all key areas. The most important measurement management uses to evaluate performance is Adjusted EBITDA. We continue to progress with our third quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $20.6 million, an improvement of $8.9 million over the previous year and $2.2 million or 12% over the second quarter of this year. During the quarter we also completed a Rights Offering and reduced our long-term debt by $60.0 million. Debt reduction is one of the Board's focuses as a means to increase value to our shareholders," stated Melbourne F. Yull, Executive Director.

A reconciliation of the Company's Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to GAAP net earnings, is set out in the EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation table in the section entitled "EBITDA".

Operating results

Net earnings for the third quarter of 2007 were $1.0 million or $0.02 per share, both basic and diluted, compared to a loss of $123.3 million or $3.01 per share, both basic and diluted, for the third quarter of 2006. Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 totaled $7.7 million or $0.19 per share, both basic and diluted, compared to a net loss of $151.5 million or $3.70 per share, both basic and diluted, for the same period in 2006.

Excluding accelerated amortization of debt issue expenses, manufacturing facility closures, strategic alternatives and other charges and impairment of goodwill (all net of related taxes) adjusted net earnings for the third quarter resulted in a profit of $2.7 million or $0.07 per share, both basic and diluted, and a year-to-date adjusted net loss of $0.7 million or $0.02 per share, both basic and diluted.

Adjusted net earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company is including because management believes it provides a better comparison of results for the periods presented since it does not take into account non-recurring items and manufacturing facility closures costs in each period. Adjusted net earnings does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP in Canada or the United States and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. A reconciliation of the Company's adjusted net earnings to net earnings is set out later in this press release.

During the third quarter of 2007, Intertape recorded manufacturing facility closures, strategic alternatives and other charges of $1.3 million, substantially all of which was related to the recently concluded strategic alternatives process. This compares to the $16.0 million in such charges during the third quarter a year ago.

Sales

Intertape's sales increased for the second consecutive quarter, after three consecutive quarters of decline. Sales for the third quarter were $201.9 million, a 7.9% improvement over this year's second quarter sales of $187.1 million. This includes a 3.6% increase in sales volume with the balance of the increase attributable to selling price increases and product mix. A portion of this sequential sales volume improvement is the result of new engineered coated products commercialized this year and which have recently been introduced into new markets. This volume growth was realized despite the fact that the Company is not yet experiencing increased sales volumes related to the overall demand for products in its largest end use market, residential construction. The Company's year-over-year sales grew 3.5% from the $195.1 million recorded in the third quarter of 2006. This improvement includes a 1.8% increase in sales volume with the balance of the increase due to selling price increases and product mix.

Sales for the first nine months of 2007 were $575.8 million compared to $624.9 million for the same period in 2006, a decrease of 7.9% . This result includes a 7.1% decline in sales volume with the balance of the decline due to selling price decreases. The year-to-date sales volume decline compared to the first nine months of 2006 is the result of a decline in commercial activity within key markets of the Company's engineered coated products, including the residential construction market, a decline in the sale of North American tape products and consumer customer account rationalization as well the previous uncertainties surrounding the Company.

Gross profit

Gross profit for the third quarter totaled $30.8 million at a gross margin of 15.3%, as compared to gross profit of $25.7 million for the third quarter of 2006 at a gross margin of 13.2% . The margin improvement in 2007 is due to improved year-over-year sales volumes and lower manufacturing expenses. Gross margins for the third quarter of 2007 improved slightly from second quarter gross margins of 15.2%.

The gross profit and gross margin for the nine months of 2007 were $86.6 million and 15.0% respectively, compared to $94.8 million and 15.2% for the nine months of 2006.

SG&A as a % of sales continues to decrease

Third quarter selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $17.5 million (8.7% of sales), compared to $21.4 million for the third quarter of 2006 (11.0% of sales). SG&A expenses for the first nine months of 2007 decreased $13.7 million to $52.5 million (9.1% of sales) compared to $66.2 million (10.6% of sales) for the same period in 2006. This year's decrease in SG&A expenses is a result of the cost reduction initiatives the Company began in the second half of 2006 and which was completed in the first quarter of 2007. The cost reduction program has resulted in the Company incurring $13.7 million less SG&A expense in the first nine months of 2007 compared to 2006.

EBITDA on an upward trend

EBITDA continued to grow substantially and was $19.3 million for the third quarter compared to ($124.3 million) for the same quarter a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter rose to $20.6 million from $11.7 million for the corresponding period last year. This marks the third consecutive quarter of meaningful improvement from the third and fourth quarters of 2006 when Adjusted EBITDA was between $11.0 and $12.0 million in each quarter. It was also the Company's highest adjusted EBITDA margin since the second quarter of 2006.

In addition, the third quarter performance reflects a 12.0% improvement over the Adjusted EBITDA of $18.4 million reported in the second quarter of 2007 and a 25.6% improvement over the adjusted EBITDA of $16.4 million reported for the first quarter of 2007. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the third quarter was 10.2% compared to 6.0% in the same quarter a year ago and up from the 9.8% recorded in the second quarter of 2007.

The terms EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not have any standardized meanings prescribed by Canadian or U.S. GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. A reconciliation of the Company's EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP financial measures, to GAAP net earnings (loss) is set out in the EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation table above.

Cash flow from operations

Cash flow from operations before changes in non-cash working capital items reached $14.4 million for the third quarter of 2007 compared with $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2006. This improvement stems from increased profitability in 2007 including lower cash charges related to the strategic alternatives process and other charges. Cash flow from operations before changes in non-cash working capital items was $30.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 and $11.3 million for the same period a year earlier.

Non-cash working capital items used $6.8 million in cash for the third quarter, compared with providing $16.7 million during the same period in 2006. Changes in non-cash working capital items in the third quarter of 2007 were primarily the result of a $4.7 million increase in trade receivables, reflecting higher sales. Last year's cash generation essentially resulted from a $19.1 million decrease in trade receivables between June 30, 2006 and September 30, 2006. Changes in non-cash working capital items used $8.3 million in cash for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 compared with providing $26.7 million in liquidity during the same period in 2006.

As a result, cash flow from operating activities stood at $7.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 and at $21.7 million for the nine-month period. In 2006, cash flow from operating activities reached $17.7 million in the third quarter and $38.0 million for the first nine months.

A strengthened balance sheet

Late in the third quarter the Company completed a shareholder rights offering netting approximately $60.9 million in additional equity funding. Proceeds have been used to reduce Intertape's long-term debt by $60.0 million, $45.0 million of which was repaid prior to the end of the third quarter and $15.0 million of which was repaid in early October.

In addition to this improvement, Intertape has reduced its outstanding draws under its Revolving Credit Facility from $5.0 million at June 30, 2007 to $0.1 million at September 30, 2007. The Company's Revolving Credit Facility allows it borrow up to $60.0 million, subject to certain financial covenant restrictions. The Company's Revolving Credit Facility expires in July 2009 and the Company believes that based on its current financial position and projected forecasts, it will be able to replace the Facility under terms that will continue to provide it with adequate liquidity.

Income taxes

For the nine months ended September 30, 2007, Intertape recorded income tax expense of approximately $9.0 million, including a $6.3 million tax asset valuation reserve recorded in the second quarter. The Company also incurred substantial nondeductible expenses associated with the strategic alternatives process. The Company's estimated effective income tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2006 was approximately 17.5% .

Outlook

"We have turned the corner at Intertape. Our progress, coupled with the improvement in our balance sheet and reduced borrowing requirements, places the Company in a solid position to make further gains. We will continue to identify any opportunity to further lower working capital, grow our business, and to take additional costs out of our operations," concluded Mr. Yull.

Non-GAAP Information

This release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted net earnings, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company believes the inclusion of such non-GAAP financial measures improve the transparency of the Company's disclosure, provide a meaningful presentation of the Company's results from its core business operations by excluding the impact of items not related to the Company's ongoing core business operations, improve the period-to-period comparability of the Company's results from its core business operations, and are used by management and the Company's investors in evaluating the Company's performance. In particular, the Company's covenants contained in the credit agreement with its lenders require certain debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratios be maintained. The Company has provided reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

"Adjusted net earnings" does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by Canadian or U.S. GAAP and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. "Adjusted net earnings" is defined by the Company as net earnings (loss) (as reported) less manufacturing facility closure costs, strategic alternatives costs and other charges (on a net of tax basis). A reconciliation of GAAP net earnings (loss) to adjusted net earnings is set forth in the table below.

The terms EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not have any standardized meanings prescribed by Canadian or U.S. GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The Company defines EBITDA as earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and amortization of other intangibles and capitalized software costs, and Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus manufacturing facility closures, strategic alternatives costs and other charges. A reconciliation of the Company's EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP financial measures, to GAAP net earnings (loss) is set out in the table below.
