" (8/8/2017)
  • 2. KeyCorp analysts commented, "We understand CLW’s desire to get bigger in the growing premium and ultra- premium segments, but we also know that its tissue prices have been under pressure over the past two years and do not know when the pressure will abate. Key Investment Points Beyond our short- and long-term concerns about SBS and tissue industry pricing (price erosion has significantly limited CLW’s adj. EBITDA growth in recent years), we note that CLW will be highly levered (close to 4.0x EBITDA) as a result of this expansion and, thus, unable to return significant cash to shareholders."
