Labels printed by the Company appear principally on mass-marketed products for which label appearance is a significant element of product marketing and merchandising. Multi-Color produces labels for a variety of consumer products including liquid detergents, fabric softeners, food products, liquid cleaners, anti-freeze and chewing gum. " (11/10/2018)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are also slightly reducing our FY19 and FY20 free cash flow estimates from $100 million to $93 million (FY19 guidance is ~$100 million). LABL’s shares are trading at 9.4x our CY18 adj. EBITDA estimate, roughly in line with its three-year average multiple, which we think is reasonable and not inexpensive given the Company’s high leverage and inconsistent execution.
