    04.05.2015   PAPTAC Standard Methods Committee Disbands     ( Company news )

    Company news Picture: Wayne Bichard

    The Executive Council of the Pulp and Paper Technical Association of Canada (PAPTAC) has decided to dissolve the Standards Methods Committee (SMC). The SMC, Chaired by Wayne Bichard of FPInnovations, was responsible for providing the industry with up-to-date scientific methods for the evaluation of raw materials, processes, and products. This means that new PAPTAC test methods would no longer be developed and existing ones would no longer be updated. These methods would still be valid and available and would continue to form a body of useful technical literature.

    PAPTAC was founded in 1915 as the Technical Section of the Canadian Pulp and Paper Association. PAPTAC is a Canadian-based non-profit organization, dedicated to improving the technical and professional capabilities of its members worldwide, and to the advancement of the pulp and paper industry.

    Todd Popson, CEO of Technidyne Corporation, has been a member of the SMC for about 20 years. The final meeting of the PAPTAC Standard Methods Committee will be held on Thursday, May 14 at 9:30 AM at FPInnovations.

    Wayne Bichard the longtime Chairman of the PAPTAC Standard Methods Committee has been battling with cancer and his health has been very bad in recent months. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

    04.05.2015   Fibria: 1Q15 Earnings Release    ( Company news )

    Company news 1Q15 Highlights
    -Pulp production of 1,291 thousand tons, 6% down on 4Q14, but 1% up year-on-year. LTM production totaled 5,288 thousand tons.
    -Scheduled maintenance downtime at the Aracruz Mill’s C Plant successfully concluded.
    -Pulp sales of 1,229 thousand tons, 13% less than in 4Q14 but 3% more than in 1Q14. LTM sales were 1% higher than production in the same period.
    -Net revenue of R$1,997 million (4Q14: R$2,001 million | 1Q14: R$1,642 million). LTM net revenue totaled R$7,438 million, 5% up on 2014 and a new 12-month record.
    -Cash cost of R$572/t, 21% and 4% up on 4Q14 and 1Q14, respectively, and below LTM inflation. Excluding the foreign exchange variation, the cash cost edged up by 1% year-on-year.
    -EBITDA Margin of 50%, a new quarterly record.
    -Adjusted EBITDA of R$1,007 million, 11% and 48% higher than in 4Q14 and 1Q14, respectively, and also a quarterly record. LTM EBITDA
    totaled R$3,119 million.
    -EBITDA/ton of R$819/t (US$285/t), 27% more than in the previous three months and 43% up year-on-year.
    -Free cash flow of R$ 373 million, 42% up on 4Q14 and R$364 million more than in 1Q14.
    -Net loss of R$566 million (4Q14: net loss of R$128 million | 1Q14: net income of R$19 million).
    -Gross debt in dollars of US$ 2,915 million, 7% and 22% down on 4Q14
    and 1Q14, respectively.
    -Net debt in dollars reached its lowest level since Fibria began operations, falling by 9% over 1Q14.
    -Total cost of debt, including the full swap of debt in reais, of 3.5 % p.a. (4Q14: 3.4 % p.a. | 1Q14: 3.7% p.a.).
    -Average debt term of 54 months (4Q14: 55 months | 1Q14: 47 months).

    The pulp market remained balanced in the first quarter of 2015. Positive demand was confirmed by the decline in inventories and the increase in eucalyptus pulp exports over the same period last year, especially to Asia.
    Thanks to the favorable fundamentals, Fibria was able to introduce a new US$ 20/t increase in pulp prices for all regions as of April (Europe: US$ 790/t) and allowing sales to move up 3% year-on-year.
    As a result of the price hikes announced by other producers, the PIX/FOEX BHKP Europe price averaged US$ 750/t in the quarter, 2% more than in the previous three months.
    The average dollar recorded a consistent upturn throughout the period,
    climbing by 13%, which, together with higher pulp prices in dollars,
    helped push up the average net price in reais by 14% in comparison to 4Q14.
    In addition, EBITDA reached a new quarterly record.
    Pulp production totaled 1,291 thousand tons in 1Q15, 6% down on 4Q14
    due to the reduced number of production days and the scheduled maintenance downtime at the Aracruz Mill’s C Plant. Compared to the same period the year before, output increased by 1%, thanks to improved operating efficiency.
    Sales volume came to 1,229 thousand tons, 13% down on the previous quarter due to period seasonality, and 3% up on 1Q14 due to higher
    demand, mainly in Europe and Asia.
    Pulp inventories closed the quarter at 52 days. The production cash cost was R$ 572/t, 21% up on 4Q14, primarily due to the scheduled maintenance stoppages, the lower utilities result, the higher cost of wood (higher average distance from forest to mill and increased use of third-party wood, especially in the forestry partnership program) and exchange rate effect.
    In comparison with 1Q14, the cash cost increasedby 4% (LTM IPCA inflation: 8.1%) primarily due to the foreign exchange variation and
    higher wood costs.
    Fibria will continue to seek initiatives to minimize its cost structure
    and ensure that the upturn in its 2015 production cash cost lags inflation.
    Adjusted 1Q15 EBITDA totaled R$ 1,007 million, 11% up on 4Q14 and a new quarterly record, thanks to the higher average net price in reais and lower cash COGS.
    The EBITDA margin stood at 50%. The increase over 1Q14 was also due to the higher average net price in reais, as well as the upturn in sales volume.
    LTM EBITDA came to R$ 3,119 million, 12% up on 2014.
    Free cash flow for the quarter amounted to R$ 373 million, 42% more than in the previous three months, mainly due to higher EBITDA and
    the declinein interest payments (thanks to the liability management initiatives), partially offset by the variation in working capital.
    The year-on-year increase was driven by the same factors. The 1Q15 financial result was a net expense of R$ 1,746 million, versus net expenses of R$ 611 million in 4Q14 and R$ 170 million in 1Q14.
    The variation was chiefly due to the 21% appreciation of the closing
    dollar against the real, resulting in higher foreign-exchange losses on dollar-denominated debt and hedge instruments.
    It is worth noting the 39% reduction in interest expenses in dollars
    over 1Q14, thanks to more effective liability management aimed at reducing the principal and cost of debt.
    Gross debt in dollars totaled US$ 2,915 million, 7% and 22% down on 4Q14 and 1Q14, respectively.
    The Company closed the quarter with a cash position of R$ 361 million,
    including the mark-to-market of the derivative instruments.
    As a result of all the above, Fibria reported a 1Q15 net loss of R$ 566 million, versus a net loss of R$ 128 million in 4Q14 and net income of R$ 19 million in 1Q14.

    Mpact is pleased to announce the appointment of Johan Stumpf as Managing Director of Mpact’s Corrugated business with effect from 1 January 2016, succeeding Ralph von Veh (63), who is approaching retirement.

    To facilitate an efficient handover Johan will join Mpact on 1 October 2015 as Director Operations – Mpact Corrugated.

    The Board would like to thank Ralph for his invaluable contribution towards the success of the Group and, in particular, the Corrugated business which, under his leadership over the past 15 years, has been established as the market leader.

    Ralph will remain with the Group as a member of the Mpact Executive Committee, responsible for the bags and sacks businesses, Detpak and Pyramid, and will represent Mpact’s interests on the boards of various Mpact subsidiaries and associates.

    01.05.2015   Paperworld China 2015 scheduled in October for superior industry sourcing period    ( Company news )

    Company news The 11th edition of Paperworld China, the leading international trade fair in China for the stationery and office supplies industry will be held from 15 – 17 October 2015 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, Hall N1 – N2, an ideal location for exhibitors and visitors alike. As Paperworld China will now even better accommodate the industry sourcing period, a number of quality exhibitors have already signed on to participate in the 2015 show, including major brand names such as Dokumental, Liberty, Max, Polar Bear, Premec, Simbalion and Titi. Also, the Wenzhou and Ningbo pavilions have already confirmed their attendance at the show.
    Paperworld China will gather buyers locally and from around the world to source products in China as October is the prime sourcing period in Asia for consumer goods. To take advantage of the best Asia has to offer in the industry, buyers will begin the hunt for products in Shanghai and conclude their sourcing needs in Guangzhou or Hong Kong. Being the first station of the new sourcing route, suppliers and buyers are able to better understand the needs and desires of consumers.

    Creative Pavilion and Oriental Culture zone returning
    In 2014, the show featured the “DIY Studio” which was jointly organised by Paperworld China and the DIY Industry Promotion Council of Shanghai Creative Industry Association. This endeavour attracted numerous high-quality “do-it-yourself” and handicraft companies displaying their products in the zone with more than 20,000 professional visitors at Paperworld China coming to also discover the newest in DIY products and ideas.
    Representing the show organiser, Ms Fiona Chiew, Deputy General Manager for Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd said: “The DIY market is always expanding with new and innovative products continuing to inspire consumers, especially in the emerging market in China. Considering the tremendous success at last year’s Paperworld China, we will join forces again to establish the inaugural Creative Pavilion, expecting to double in exhibition space and exhibitor numbers.”

    The Creative Pavilion will include a greater variety of items related to DIY supplies, hobby products as well as crafts and artist supplies. Exhibitors will offer live demonstrations and interactive workshops for a better understanding of their products ranging from scrapbooks, patchworks, paper moulds, glass paints, wood paints, fabric paints and fabric art items to clay modelling and embroidery.

    Additionally, the very well-received Oriental Culture zone will be returning in 2015. It will cooperate with museums and cultural organisations to highlight traditional arts and workmanship in combining cultural and contemporary elements. The enhanced product groups including desktop items and related souvenirs with oriental attributes will also be extended this year.

    Paperworld China will also be held concurrently with two other well-known events: Music China, Asia Pacific’s largest trade fair for musical instruments and Prolight + Sound Shanghai, the leading professional audio and lighting, entertainment and event technology trade fair in Asia. Combining all three shows will allow for gaining a greater audience as visitors from educational institutions, schools as well as visitors from the creative sector will gather at Shanghai New International Expo Centre at the same time and experience a creative synergy in visiting all three shows.

    An early-bird discount will be offered to applications until 31 May 2015. For more information about the show, please visit www.paperworldchina.com or email: stationery@hongkong.messefrankfurt.com.

    01.05.2015   SOLVAY TO EXPAND PEROXIDES PRODUCTION TO SERVE GROWING ...    ( Company news )

    Company news ... NORTH AMERICAN MARKETS

    Solvay, the world’s largest producer of hydrogen peroxide, plans to expand its production facility in Longview (photo), WA., to meet growing demands from pulp and paper producers in the Pacific Northwest and other industrial markets around the United States.
    Solvay expects to increase its North American production capacity by about 20 percent, supported by a multi-million dollar investment in Longview. This investment will help to ensure that Solvay can continue to supply key markets that rely on Solvay to support their own growth projections.
    The investment will be in two stages.
    Longview construction is expected to begin later in 2015 and completion of stage one is expected in late 2016. Stage two of the expansion will take place in the near future as market conditions require.
    Plant employment will remain stable, augmented by contract workers during the construction stages.
    Solvay’s investment plans signify another substantial commitment to the Longview plant and to the region’s industrial markets including the neighboring North Pacific Paper Corporation’s (NORPAC) production facility.
    The expansion of Solvay’s North American peroxides capacity will also support internal demand growth for electronic grade peroxide serving the electronics market.
    Paul Hogan, Solvay’s North American senior vice president for peroxides, explained, “We have seen tightening market conditions in recent years, conditions that should continue for the near future, and this investment is needed to support our customers’ significant growth.
    Additionally, our electronic grade hydrogen peroxide is experiencing strong growth and this investment will help secure our position in this important market segment.
    “Solvay is the global peroxides market leader,” he said, “and we remain committed to serving customers who, in turn, expect us to support their growth ambitions.”
    Since the Longview plant opened in 1989, Solvay has more than tripled its local production in a longstanding partnership with the forest products industry. In addition, Solvay’s Longview employees have worked without a lost-time accident for almost the entire history of the site.
    Capping that commitment to safety, Solvay, since 2002, has consistently earned VPP Star Status from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), one of the first manufacturing sites in Washington State to do so.

    01.05.2015   PAPERLINX: AUSTRIAN BUSINESS PLACED INTO ADMINISTRATION    ( Company news )

    Company news PaperlinX Limited (“PaperlinX”) advises that local court processes to place its Austrian operations, PaperNet GmbH, into administration commenced on 28 April 2015. An administrator has been appointed and will commence in that role once the final court processes are concluded.
    The local directors were required to commence this course of action given the liquidity issues that the business has faced following the tightening and/or withdrawal of credit terms from suppliers and lenders in recent weeks after the PaperlinX UK and Benelux businesses were placed into administration. This appointment in Austria highlights the interconnectedness of the PaperlinX European businesses.
    Although attempts to sell this business have been unsuccessful, PaperlinX will continue to pursue opportunities to divest the remaining European businesses in Spain, Czech Republic, Poland, Scandinavia, Ireland and Germany.
    PaperlinX reiterate its previous statements that the successful and profitable business operations in Australia, New Zealand and Asia have financial separation from European operations. The day to day businesses and operations of the ANZA region remain unchanged.

    30.04.2015   ABB wins automation order from Fajar Paper    ( Company news )

    Company news Automation system comprising distributed control system and quality control system will contribute to higher productivity and reliability of packaging paper production

    ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has won an order from PT Fajar Surya Wisesa Tbk (Fajar Paper), a leading packaging paper manufacturer in Indonesia. The contract was booked end of 2014.

    ABB will provide the automation system for paper machine 3 (PM3), one of the current five paper machines at Fajar Paper responsible for a combined production of around 1.2 million tons of packaging paper per year, including Coated Duplex Board, Kraft Liner Board and Corrugated Medium Paper.

    “We are very happy to use ABB equipment on our paper machines and we appreciate how ABB always takes a long term view of their relationship with Fajar, seeing it as something that is more important than one single order,” said Wimba Wibawa, Engineering Director in PT Fajar Surya Wisesa TBk.

    The scope of delivery comprises distributed control system for stock preparation, chemical area and paper machine and quality control system for paper machine with two scanners. The existing third-party automation system in PM3 will be replaced with ABB’s Automation System 800xA, thus resolving the legacy issue faced by the automation system. With this project, Fajar Paper will be one step closer to its plan of having a site-wide fully integrated automation system.

    “We are delighted to collaborate with Fajar Paper once again after the successful execution of the automation system in paper machine 5 and we look forward to a long-standing and valuable partnership,” said Ravi N., manager of ABB’s Process Automation division in Singapore. “ABB has extensive knowledge and experience in delivering such projects and will continue to build on this strong track record providing reliable and efficient technology for the paper industry.”

    800xA is ABB’s flagship collaborative process automation platform comprising distributed control system, safety control system, quality control system and electrical control system.

    30.04.2015   Giesecke & Devrient makes a Healthy Start into 2015 with Restructuring Underway    ( Company news )

    Company news -Sales in 2014 up 4.5 percent to 1.83 billion euros
    -EBIT before restructuring slightly above last year at 62 million euros
    -One-off restructuring costs of 74 million euros
    -Consolidated net income at minus 73 million euros
    -Free cash flow at 23 million euros
    -Positive trend in the first quarter in terms of order backlog and earnings

    For Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) 2014 was a year of restructuring, during which important strategic decisions were made. Yet sales increased by 4.5 percent to 1.83 billion euros. Group earnings (EBIT) were slightly above last year at 62 million euros (2013: 56.2 million euros). However, all three business units – Banknote, Mobile Security and Government Solutions – fell short of their earning targets. Restructuring expenses amounted to 74 million euros. EBIT after restructuring is at minus 12 million euros, while the net loss for the year amounts to 73 million euros.

    "This performance can be attributed above all to increasing competitive and pricing pressure in all markets relevant to G&D. The countermeasures implemented so far had been insufficient. Last year we therefore launched an extensive cost reduction program amounting to 100 million euros, with which we will strengthen our profitability for the long term. In addition, we have undertaken structural changes at the company to enable us to better adapt to market and customer demands in future," explains Dr. Walter Schlebusch, Chairman of the Management Board of Giesecke & Devrient. Measures have been taken to strengthen all three business units for the future, including reorganization of the Mobile Security and Banknote business units, and the operational realignment of the Government Solutions business unit. "With the launch of Veridos GmbH – a joint venture by the Government division and Germany's federal mint, the Bundesdruckerei – we are pooling our international activities, giving us good opportunities for growth," commented Schlebusch on the joint venture, which became operational on January 1, 2015. "Despite the current challenges, we are on the right track. Together with the cost reduction program and structural changes, which we have undertaken with a view to the future, the current order situation, the growth markets in Asia and North America, and increasing sales prospects in future segments promise a positive outlook for G&D," continues Schlebusch.

    Business Units
    The Banknote business unit is market leader in the production of new banknotes, in the field of substrates, security solutions, banknote processing systems, and automated processing technology. It has succeeded in increasing its sales by 5 percent to 887 million euros in the last business year and therefore still accounts for the largest proportion of consolidated sales. Earnings were also positive, predominantly due to good sales in the areas of banknote paper, foils, and banknote security solutions. Sales in compact banknote processing systems and service sales were also significantly improved.
    The Mobile Security business unit is one of the world's leading providers of products, services, and complete solutions for payment, secure communication, and identity management. In 2014, sales for this business unit were up by 6.4 percent to 778 million euros, especially in card products for banks due to continuous EMV migration in Asia and America. However, the earnings contribution was once again negative, mainly due to an even more dramatic drop in prices worldwide.
    The Government Solutions business unit is a leading provider of government security documents and an integrated provider of ID solutions. Sales came in at 168 million euros, roughly 6 percent less than the previous year figure. The unit did not realize a positive contribution to earnings in 2014. However, in the same period the unit won good new contracts, such as to supply several million passports in Iraq. Signing the contract to found the joint venture Veridos GmbH also laid the foundations for the expansion of international business.
    The second division of the Government Solutions business unit – the listed company Secunet, in which G&D holds a 79.43% share – performed well and succeeded in increasing both sales and earnings compared to last year. The principal share of sales growth is attributed to the public sector, due on the one hand to cryptographic products and on the other to a large cyber security product range for public-sector clients.

    Outlook
    The current healthy order situation will have a positive impact over the coming months. In 2015 G&D forecasts further sales growth and an increase in EBIT slightly above the 2014 figure. Consolidated net income should return to positive territory. The trend in the first quarter confirms this outlook. In addition, there will be initial positive effects of the cost reduction program. G&D will also invest heavily in research and development again this year. Dr. Walter Schlebusch comments "I am confident that we have good growth prospects, with our innovative products and our forward-looking business models. The essential restructuring will give us a boost."
