Greif, Inc. Research Report

On June 5, 2013, Greif, Inc. (Greif) announced results for Q2 FY 2013 (period ended April 30, 2013). Net sales were $1,088.9 million compared with $1,098.2 million for Q2 FY 2012. According to the Company, modestly higher sales volumes were offset by lower selling prices and the negative impact of foreign currency translation. Net income was $40.9 million or $0.70 per diluted share, up from net income of $39.4 million or $0.67 per diluted share in Q2 FY 2012. Commenting on the results, David B. Fischer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Greif, said, "Overall volumes were modestly higher compared with the same period last year while material costs and restructuring charges were both lower, which contributed to an increase in our consolidated results for the second quarter of 2013. Volume trends in our rigid industrial packaging business continue to vary by region. Our paper packaging business achieved record performance for the quarter." In the second half of 2013, Greif anticipates modest sales growth benefiting from the agricultural sector, stable raw material costs across the Company's business portfolio, and continuation of favorable market conditions in its Paper Packaging business.
