However, the company beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate on both counts. The company has withdrawn 2020 guidance amid the coronavirus-induced uncertainty. The company will benefit from strong demand in e-commerce channel owing to containment measures amid the pandemic. Further, corrugated packaging demand remains resilient due to its critical role in supply chain. The Global cellulose fibers segment is riding on strong consumer demand for absorbent hygiene products and tissue products as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. However, weak demand for printing papers as schools and office remain closed is a headwind. The company will nevertheless benefit from its solid balance sheet and acquisitions." (5/27/2020)
