Investors avoided big bets as Boris Johnson continued to push for a pre-Christmas election which he hopes will land him a majority and the chance to finally get his Brexit deal through parliament.

    UPDATE 2-European shares break six-day winning streak, focus moves to Fed

    European shares closed lower for the first time in seven sessions on Tuesday, as weak earnings dampened optimism surrounding the U.S.-China trade progress and ahead of an expected interest-rate cut by the U.S. Federal Reserve later this week. "The markets are at new highs in Europe and in the U.S. and that is also something that could be pushing investors to take some profit," said Roland Kaloyan, head of European equity strategy at Société Générale. Finnish paper firm Stora Enso's slumped 5.1% as its quarterly profit dropped and it warned of global political uncertainties.

    CORRECTED-RPT-Positive yields ahoy! Investors hoover up European junk bond issues

    Junk-rated firms Smurfit Kappa and Thyssenkrupp were overwhelmed with demand when they kicked off post-summer proceedings for the European high-yield market on Monday, as yield-starved investors piled into the new issues. With much of the European bond market now in negative-yielding territory, investors are being forced down the credit spectrum - allowing the likes of Smurfit Kappa and Thyssenkrupp to price deals at levels rarely seen before.

    Positive yields ahoy! Investors hoover up European junk bond issues

    Junk-rated firms Smurfit Kappa and Thyssenkrupp were overwhelmed with demand when they kicked off post-summer proceedings for the European high-yield market on Monday, as yield-starved investors piled into the new issues. With much of the European bond market now in negative-yielding territory, investors are being forced down the credit spectrum - allowing the likes of Smurfit Kappa and Thyssenkrupp to price deals at levels rarely seen before. Packaging firm Smurfit Kappa caught the eye with its plans to sell 750 million euros ($835.80 million) of eight-year bonds at 1.5%, some of the lowest yields clocked in the European junk bond market for a new issue, particularly for one of such a long maturity.

    FTSE 100 packaging giant's anger over Venezuela seizure

    The boss of Smurfit Kappa (Frankfurt: SK3.F - news) , Europe's biggest maker of cardboard boxes, has spoken of his anger at the company's business in Venezuela being seized by the country's Marxist government. President Nicolas Maduro's regime took control of Smurfit Kappa's Venezuelan operations, which employed 1,600 people and which owned production plants in Caracas and paper mills and a recycling plant elsewhere in the country, in August last year. The move followed a campaign of harassment and intimidation by government officials and immediately had a knock-on effect as consumer goods giant Colgate-Palmolive, a customer of Smurfit Kappa, was forced to halt production of detergents and soap because it no longer had boxes in which to ship its products.

    "I think she's determined to try and avoid a no deal Brexit if she can, because she recognises in talking to business that this could be very damaging for the UK economy and ergo jobs, and politically would be very bad for her," Tony Smurfit told Reuters in a telephone interview on Wednesday.

    Statement re Revolving Credit Facility

    Dublin, London, 29 January, 2019: Smurfit Kappa Group plc (‘SKG’ or the “Group”) is pleased to announce that it has signed an unsecured €1,350 million revolving credit facility (“RCF”) with 21 of its existing relationship banks. The new RCF will refinance the Group’s existing senior credit facility which matures in March 2020. As a continuation of SKG’s financing strategy, the new facility further streamlines the Group’s capital structure by facilitating the concurrent release of substantially all of its subsidiary guarantees across all of the Group’s senior debt funding arrangements including its senior notes, consistent with typical large corporates of similar scale and credit profile.
