Sappi delivers solid profit during third quarter while concluding key expansion projects
13 August 2018
Sappi Chief Executive Officer Steve Binnie, commenting on the group’s performance, said: “Our third quarter operating performance was in line with previous guidance with earnings (EBITDA ex special items) flat at US$155 million compared to a year ago. The third quarter is seasonally and historically our weakest quarter due to the slow-down in business activity during the Northern Hemisphere summer holiday period and Sappi’s choice to use this quarter to undertake major annual maintenance shuts. A strong performance by our European operations was offset by a number of once-off operational and production issues in our South African and North American businesses.”
Nine design projects receive funds to implement campaigns for social good with print.
From a single pulp and paper mill producing paper from straw in 1938, Sappi has evolved into a global provider of dissolving wood pulp, packaging and specialty papers, and graphic papers, as well as biomaterials and biochemicals.
