LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Packaging maker Smurfit Kappa said higher corrugated pricing and demand growth helped first quarter earnings rise 25% to €424m (£363m).
Revenue rose 7% to €2.3bn as the company said it was confident of another year of progress. The company also reported an earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation margin of 18.3% during the period.

In Europe, first quarter organic corrugated volume growth was 2% year-on-year, against a strong 2018 comparison, with corrugated pricing in line with expectations, the company said.
