Sonoco Products Co. Research Report

On July 18, 2013, Sonoco Products Co. (Sonoco) released Q2 2013 financial
results (period ending June 30, 2013). GAAP earnings per diluted share were
$0.53, as compared to $0.50 in Q2 2012. Q2 2013 net sales were $1.23 billion,
a 2% YoY increase. Jack Sanders, Sonoco President and CEO, commented,
"Overall, we're pleased with our results for the quarter. We were able to
achieve records in sales and gross profits, while delivering base earnings
near the high end of our guidance. Despite challenging global economic
conditions, base earnings benefited from volume gains, productivity
improvements and a positive price/cost relationship. These positive factors
were partially offset by higher labor, pension and other operating costs and a
higher effective tax rate on base earnings." Sonoco also expects Q3 2013 and
full-year 2013 base earnings to be in the range of $0.59 to $ 0.63 per diluted
share and $ 2.26 to $ 2.32 per diluted share, respectively. The Full Research
Report on Sonoco Products Co. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst
ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at:
