Smurfit Kappa Launches Shelf-Facer, to Reportedly Increase the Visibility of Goods on the Shelf

Smurfit Kappa has announced the launch of Shelf-Facer, to reportedly increase the visibility of goods on the shelf. The announcement of the Shelf-Facer follows the recent release of Smurfit Kappa's shopper marketing white paper - Marketing on the Shelf - exactly how in control are you? - which found that, despite 76% of purchase decisions being made by shoppers in-store, brands often fail to seize upon the powerful marketing opportunity it represents, particularly at point of purchase and on the shelf. To meet this challenge, Smurfit Kappa drew on the brightest and most creative minds of its 700 plus designers worldwide. Tasked with creating a solution to maximise shelf visibility, the result was an innovative and commercial solution for brands to guarantee their products are as easy as possible to find and buy in store. The Shelf-Facer consistently ensures the product is in view and available at the front of the shelf for consumers to find. Once an item has been purchased, it is immediately replaced by another from behind, significantly improving brand visibility and increasing sales.

Although reported EBITDA increased by only 1%, the underlying move was an increase of over 6% with higher earnings in Europe partly offset by margin and lower earnings in the Americas. EBITDA margin for the quarter decreased slightly to 14% with an improved margin in Europe more than offset by a lower margin in the Americas.

Targeted programme of high return capital investments will support organic earnings growth into 2015. In this context, a number of ‘Quick Win’ projects, approved in 2014, will begin to directly boost EBITDA by €18 million in 2015. Assuming no material dis-improvement in European economic conditions, the company expects to grow the business through continued superior operating performance, high return internal investments and targeted acquisitions. The Group expects to deliver earnings growth, stronger free cash flows, and through the judicious use of capital to continue to improve returns for shareholders. Capital expenditure slightly ahead of the Group’s guidance of €420 million for the year 2014, it is expected to return to the guided range of approximately €420 million per annum in 2015 and 2016.
