ATLANTA, June 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- DS Smith plc (SMDS.L), a leading provider of sustainable packaging, today announces its further expansion in North America with the opening of its new headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. The company's momentum and leadership in environmental and sustainability stewardship in Europe offers a launchpad for its expansion in North America, and comes at a time when consumers seek more options for sustainable packaging. DS Smith's closed-loop recycling model – where paper and corrugated is collected, recycled and then used again to make packaging materials – has proven successful in Europe, helping the company to manage more than 5 million tons of recyclable materials every year.
The company, which makes corrugated cardboard, recycled paper and plastic packaging, posted a 31% rise in full-year adjusted pretax profit, but said box volumes growth slowed due to previously flagged weakness in certain export markets during the second half of the year. DS Smith, which bought Spanish rival Europac for 1.9 billion euros ($2.15 billion) last year, also raised its savings target from the deal to 70 million euros ($79.1 million) from 50 million euros. DS Smith supplies packaging products to companies including Amazon.com Inc, British fashion chain Next Plc and brands such as Aldi, Tesco Plc, Primark, Auchan and IKEA.
UK-based DS Smith in March agreed to sell its plastics division to Liqui-Box, a portfolio company of private equity firm Olympus Partners. DS Smith, which supplies packaging products to companies including Amazon.com, announced the sale as it sought to move away from plastics to focus on recyclable packaging materials and corrugated products. The sale, if completed, would mark an end to the company's foray into plastics and would allow it to focus on recyclable packaging materials and corrugated products, DS Smith said in March.

Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") assigned first time ratings to Liqui-Box Holdings, Inc. ("Liqui-Box"), including a B2 Corporate Family Rating and a B3-PD Probability of Default Rating. Pro forma leverage is well over 6.0 times for the 12 months ended December 31, 2018.
Dim outlooks from Glencore and Whitbread added to woes as the main index closed down 0.3 percent. The FTSE 100 nevertheless managed to clock in a fourth consecutive month of gains. The domestically focused FTSE 250 lost 0.4 percent on Tuesday.

The company said its board concluded that the unit is an attractive asset with good growth prospects. DS Smith said sales at the plastics division, which makes up 6 percent of total revenue, rose 2 percent for the first half, adding that higher polymer prices and the lag in price recovery had hurt short-term profitability. Adjusted operating profit from continuing operations rose to 304 million pounds for the six months to Oct. 31, from 231 million pounds a year earlier, the FTSE-100 firm said.
