    Ireland's Smurfit Kappa sees signs of a return in demand for packaging

    Packaging giant Smurfit Kappa expects demand to improve as the year progresses following encouraging signs in April and as recent services-focussed consumption habits return to normal, its chief executive said on Friday. Europe's largest paper packaging producer reported a 13% rise in first quarter core profit to 579 million euros ($636.4 million) on Friday, as higher margins made up for a third successive quarter of lower volumes. CEO Tony Smurfit said that "a wholesale shift" away from consuming at home to a service-led economy had hit the sector harder than expected but that may be at an end.

    Some companies are inherently more interesting than others. For example, a company seeking to develop robots which can replace humans is much more likely to captivate investors than a business which produces packaging.

    Some European firms may reverse last year's big price hikes

    LONDON (Reuters) -Some companies in Europe have said they may unwind price hikes introduced in recent years as soaring costs of energy and other raw materials have eased, potentially providing some relief to consumers. The projected cuts are the latest sign that inflation in the euro zone has peaked and may encourage hopes of a soft landing for the region's economy, which have fuelled a stock market rally this year. On Wednesday, packaging giant Smurfit Kappa said it kept prices steady in the last few months of last year as input cost inflation moderated.

    Packaging giant Smurfit keeps prices steady as input costs fall

    DUBLIN (Reuters) -Packaging giant Smurfit Kappa said input cost inflation moderated in the latter part of 2022 and it kept the prices it charges customers steady as it reported a 38% jump in full year core profit to 2.35 billion euros ($2.53 billion)on Wednesday. Chief Executive Tony Smurfit had flagged in November that he did not expect prices to rise for the remainder of 2022 but also said Smurfit may be able to unwind prices increases of up to 40% it has pushed onto customers over the previous two years. While some of those price decreases will "inevitably" come in the second half of 2023 due to the contractual terms with some customers, any declines beyond that will depend on a continued fall in key input costs.

    Packaging group Smurfit Kappa says price rises over for now

    Packaging giant Smurfit Kappa does not expect to hike prices any further this year and may be able to unwind some of the recent rapid increases it has pushed onto customers, its chief executive said on Wednesday. The prices Smurfit charges were 35% to 40% higher than they were two years ago at the end of June and Europe's largest paper packaging producer said on Wednesday it had increased them by another 2% to 3% in the third quarter. However, CEO Tony Smurfit indicated the cycle may be over for now following a recent halving in the cost of waste paper, fall in spot gas prices and an abatement in other input costs such as distribution and logistics.

    Smurfit Kappa profits jump 50% but warns some demand slowing

    DUBLIN (Reuters) -Packaging giant Smurfit Kappa posted a 50% jump in first-half core profit on Wednesday, sending shares in Europe's largest paper packaging producer sharply higher. Revenue growth of 33% pushed its core earnings up to a fresh record 1.2 billion euros ($1.22 billion), prompting Smurfit to increase its interim dividend by 8% to 31.6 euro cents per share. However CEO Tony Smurfit warned that demand, after booming as the pandemic bolstered demand for e-commerce and shelf packaging rose as economies reopened, is slowing in some parts of Europe as inflation makes consumers more cautious.
