|The company at £22 per share has a market cap of 5.2bn and debt of 2.9bn so an enterprise value 8.1bn
Ebitda at 1.3bn gives a trading multiple of 6.25 times. This is very cheap for a FTSE100 company with a track history of strong cash generation and improving ebitda.
7.5 or 8 times ebitda would be more normal. 8 times would be a 45% increase in share price from here. You can see why the share price is steadily rising! Add to that a pricing increase environment and I am very very bullish on this share|

|'Bag-in-box bulk water debuts in U.S.'
Water Event wants water to take its place among wine, tea and other beverages that come in bag-in-box packaging.
The Carrollton, TX, company distributes AquaViBox water in 10-, 15- and 20-liter single-use packages that comprise a corrugated outer box with an ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) bag. The water tap, branded Vitop, is supplied and converted along with the rest of the bag components by Smurfit Kappa.
Dave Clark, business development manager of Water Event, says Smurfit Kappa was a natural partner for a strategic alliance because it has made beverage bag-in-box packages for more than 10 years for distribution outside the United States. Clark says water has been sold in bulk bag-in-box for years in Europe, China, Australia and South Africa.
In addition to converting the package, Smurfit Kappa contributed a significant advance to the product’s viability: an adapter that allows AquaViBox to be used in almost all water coolers. The adapter was ready for the market in 2015, and Water Event launched AquaViBox in September 2016, the first commercial launch of bag-in-box water in the United States, according to Clark.

Smurfit Kappa announces the agreement to purchase the company Litbag, in order to reinforce its position in Southern Europe.
Litbag has specific expertise in multi-layer EVOH barrier films which offer the advantage of extended product shelf life. Today it is one of the leaders in the Portuguese wine market exporting to several countries including Spain and France.
The acquisition of this dynamic company will enable Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box® to reinforce its position in Southern Europe and confirm its leadership in the wine sector.
'The Bag-in-Box® business continues to show significant potential for our Group. We are excited to develop our global footprint further and we see great opportunities for our Bag-in-Box® business on a world-wide scale in the years ahead,' said Roberto Villaquiran, CEO Smurfit Kappa Europe.
'Litbag is a dynamic company with a strong track record in innovation and market development. Product differentiators like their film performance and our VITOP tap technology will significantly strengthen our capabilities when they come together,' said Thierry Minaud, CEO of Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box®.
'We are excited to join forces with Litbag and strengthen our Iberian presence under the leadership of Pascual Martinez, General Manager for this region.'
|FTSE 100 Co. but feels under the radar........happy holding.....and adding.......|
|This week will be an interesting test.
If the week finishes up then it bodes very well.
I for one believe there is significant value not factored in here yet so would be surprised if it does not finish a few percent up by close on Friday.
However if not then I will seek to add on any dips|
|Yep, good end to the day.
800k traded today , couple more large sells printed after the close from trades earlier in the day ... 50k and 39k and a couple of 9k`s . May get a RNS holding in the next few days.|
|Strong last half hour looks like the classic shake out pattern.
I expect a rebound from these levels|
|It doesn`'t look like 2100p will hold today , a few large sells from earlier getting printed now..
14k and 2 x 7.5k just shown
plus a 50k|
|Good point Moorsie.According to the results around 25% of profit comes from the Americas.Lets hope Trump is sensible.|
|Very little trading volumes today so not a lot of profit taking. Just a bit of a shake out of people who take positions before results.
Then valuation gap long predates Trump's utterances so the answer to that question is it has no affect what so ever.|
|Wonder how much Trump's proposed border tax /NAFTA renegiotations will affect SKG?Maybe this is why it trades on 11.6 PE.|
|Well this is a bit disappointing.
Profit taking I suppose.
"Analysts were mixed in their views of the Smurfit Kappa results".
"Merrion Private said results were “somewhat disappointing” but the outlook was positive, while Davy said the 20% final dividend increase reflected confidence in the sector’s outlook.
“Smurfit Kappa’s outlook commentary should result in the recently announced price increases being successful. This will likely result in upside to earnings and cash flow forecasts,” said Davy.

|Smurfit Kappa CEO: 2017 is looking reasonably good
Smurfit Kappa CEO Tony Smurfit outlines the key takeaways from the company’s latest earnings report.
|Davy valuation update 32 Euros. At the moment the share is below 26 Euros so quite a significant value gap between now and 32E

This will likely result in upside to earnings and cash flow forecasts. Strong cash generation is one of the key attractions of this business. Management’s confidence in the sustainability of this cash flow is demonstrated in a 20% increase in the final dividend. We reiterate our ‘Outperform217; rating and 3200c price target.|
