Ball Corp. Reports on Strong Financial Picture

Ball Corp. (NYSE: BLL) reported first quarter net earnings of $91.3 million, up from $79.3 million in the first quarter of 2010.

“Momentum from our strong results in 2010 continues into 2011 as we leverage our considerable strengths to grow with our customers in both mature and emerging markets,” CEO John Hayes said. “Our overall strong volume growth in each of our businesses, the impact of the consolidation of our Brazilian joint venture, the acquisitions of our North American slug and European extruded aluminum aerosol businesses and Chinese beverage can joint venture, growth in our aerospace segment and excellent operating performance across all of our businesses contributed to Ball’s first quarter results.  Looking forward, we continue to invest in our businesses to meet the increasing demand for our products and to position Ball for growth now and in the future.”
