  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "GRAPHIC PACKAGING CORPORATION, headquartered in Marietta, Georgia, is a leading provider of paperboard packaging solutions for a wide variety of products to food, beverage and other consumer products companies. Graphic Packaging's customers include some of the most widely recognized companies in the world. " (2/9/2017)

  • KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are reducing our 2017 adjusted EBITDA estimate from $777 million to $770 million (in line with implied guidance), which implies 1% growth (all of which is coming from acquisitions). There is some risk to GPK’s 2017 EBITDA guidance and our estimate considering that the Company is not baking in the potential negative impact of the highly unusual surge in U.S. OCC prices in February. GPK’s organic EBITDA declined in 2016 and appears likely to be flattish in 2017. We are assuming an improvement in trends in 2018, such that we have EBITDA up $20 million or 2%. An investor doing a bridge from 2017 to 2018 can get to as much as $60 million of EBITDA growth by assuming $70 million of productivity growth (the midpoint of GPK’s targeted annual range), an incremental ~ $15 million of CRB pricing (assuming GPK’s price increase attempt is fully successful, which admittedly is a major assumption), and an offsetting $20 million-$25 million of labor inflation. We are not inclined to assume business conditions get that much better given the Company’s recent history, so we are instead assuming $20 million of growth." (2/7/2017)

  • Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "While we believe GPK is one the best managed companies in our coverage, we are downgrading the stock to Hold and believe the stock is fairly valued and will be range bound. With demand remaining weak and rising input costs, we are cutting our 2017 estimates (4% below consensus) and expect muted EPS growth and anticipate pushback on the CRB price increase." (1/20/2017)
