3 Exhibit (a)(16) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE TREDEGAR COMPLETES SELF-TENDER OFFER RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 7, 1994 -- Tredegar Industries Inc. (NYSE:TG) announced that, based on a preliminary count, it expects to purchase 1,211,857 shares of its common stock at a price of $18.25 per share, in accordance with the terms of its "Dutch auction" self-tender offer. The offer expired Wednesday, Oct. 6, at 5 p.m., EST. After purchasing the tendered shares, Tredegar will have 9,381,032 shares of common stock outstanding. Under a standing authorization from its board of directors, Tredegar may purchase an additional 1.8 million shares on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions at prices management deems appropriate. Tredegar originally offered to purchase up to one million of its shares at prices, specified by shareholders, ranging from $17 to $19 per share. Because more than one million shares were tendered, the company elected to increase the number of shares that it will accept for purchase to 1,211,857, the maximum permitted without requiring an extension of the offer. The preliminary count by American Stock Transfer & Trust, the depositary for the offer, indicated that a total of 2,862,463 shares were tendered and not withdrawn. Of that amount, 1,245,260 shares were tendered at or below the $18.25 per share purchase price. As a result of the oversubscription, the number of shares actually purchased from each tendering shareholder will be prorated. The preliminary proration factor is 93.9 percent. The determination of the actual purchase price for the common stock and the actual proration factor is subject to final confirmation of the proper delivery of all shares tendered and not withdrawn. Payment for the shares properly tendered and accepted will be made as soon as practicable. All shares tendered and not purchased by the company will be returned promptly to shareholders. The dealer manager for the offer was Goldman, Sachs & Co. and the information agent was Georgeson & Co. Tredegar Industries is a diversified manufacturer of plastics and metal products.
