KeyCorp analysts commented, "We are raising our 2019 adjusted EBITDA estimate from $985 million to $1.025 billion (above reiterated guidance of $995 million-$1.015 billion for the reason mentioned earlier) and our 2020 estimate from $975 million to $1.015 billion (below consensus of $1.046 billion). Risks to our higher estimates are the aforementioned softening SBS market (GPK’s SBS backlogs have declined in each of the past two quarters, and SBS folding carton prices recently fell) and a resurgence of commodity cost inflation (witness the recent surge in oil prices)."
