International Paper Reportedly Eyeing Smurfit

A US paper-manufacturing giant is weighing a £6 billion-plus takeover bid for Smurfit Kappa Group plc (ISE:SK3). Sky News has learnt that International Paper Company (NYSE:IP) is working with advisers at Deutsche Bank on a possible bid for Dublin-listed Smurfit, which specialises in the production of corrugated packaging. Sources cautioned this weekend, however, that no formal approach had yet been made to Smurfit's board by International Paper, adding that the prospective bidder may yet decide not to pursue a deal.

International Paper Plans to Invest $135 Million to Expand Fluff Pulp Production at its Riegelwood N.C. Mill

International Paper announced plans to invest $135 million to expand fluff pulp production at its Riegelwood N.C. Mill. The investment will convert the mill to 100% fluff and softwood pulp production, adding an incremental 400,000 tons of capacity, with ongoing flexibility to shift between the two products. When the conversion is complete, the company will have the capability to produce up to 1.4 million tons annually of high-quality fluff. The new fluff pulp capacity is expected to ramp up mid-year 2016. As a result of the Riegelwood Mill conversion to 100% fluff and softwood pulp, the company will reduce its coated paperboard capacity by 350,000 tons, sell the Carolina® brand to MeadWestvaco (MWV), and focus the business on supplying customer demand in the food service and packaging markets. The sale of the Carolina business, which represents the majority of the coated paperboard volume reduction, is expected to close April 30, 2015. Terms of the sale were not disclosed. Carolina is a premier coated bristols brand used in a variety of applications including greeting cards, book covers and marketing collateral. The sale captures the brand's value, supports International Paper's plans to expand fluff pulp production at Riegelwood and streamlines and strengthens its coated paperboard business.
