Klabin, Brazil’s largest packaging paper producer and exporter and leading manufacturer of corrugated board packaging and industrial bags, reported its 20th straight quarter of growth, with adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) in the second quarter of 2016 of R$538 million, or 37% higher than in the second quarter of 2015. Net revenue including wood sales amounted to R$1,699 million, advancing 27% on the prior-year period.

  • Adjusted EBITDA amounted to R$538 million in the second quarter of 2016, an increase of 37% from the same period of 2015.
  • Net sales revenue in the second quarter advanced 27% on the prior-year period to R$1,699 million.
  • In March, Klabin successfully commissioned its Puma Unit in Ortigueira, Paraná. Pulp production continued to ramp up during the quarter, with sales corresponding to 50% of the mill’s nominal capacity.   

The second-quarter results benefitted from the commencement of pulp sales by the Puma Unit, which marked a new phase in the Company’s growth. The unit’s operations are ramping up within the established learning curve and contributed 181,000 tons to pulp sales volume in the period, with 165,000 tons of hardwood pulp and the remainder softwood pulp, generating revenue of R$286 million.

Klabin’s sales volume in the second quarter amounted to 631,000 tons (excluding wood), or 45% higher than in the same period last year. In addition to the additional pulp volume in the period, the Company registered 4% growth in sales of paper and packaging, which reached 450,000 tons. This growth was supported by the expansion in production capacity, the debottlenecking actions carried out in 2015 and the flexibility of its product mix, which allows production to be directed to various different markets.  

Export volume in the quarter corresponded to 50% of total sales volume, compared to 32% in the second quarter of 2015. The increase is explained by the growth in paper exports and, especially, by the start of pulp sales.

The Puma Unit is the largest investment ever in the company’s 117-year history

Klabin, Brazil's largest paper producer and exporterand the leading manufacturer of paper and board for packaging, corrugated board packaging and industrial bags, has just inaugurated its new pulp mill located in Ortigueira, Paraná.The Puma Unit represents an important mark in the company’s new growth cycle.With the new mill, Klabin becomes a fiber solutions company by being the only one in Brazil to produce, at the same plant, bleached pulp from hardwood fibers, bleached pulp from softwood fibers and fluff pulp.

2016 07 01 080958

The inauguration ceremony was attended by Brazil’s acting president, Michel Temer, the governor of Paraná, Beto Richa, the mayor of Ortigueira, Lourdes Banach, as well as representatives from federal, state and local governments, rural producers, business partners and clients.The guests were welcomed by Klabin’s chairman of the board, Paulo Galvão, and other directors, and by the company’s CEO, Fabio Schvartsman, and its other executive officers.

“It’s imperative for a country of continental dimensions, like Brazil, to have a solid and competitive industrial sector.And Klabin shares this vision.It’s at the core of our corporate DNA,” said Galvão during the inauguration ceremony.According to Israel Klabin, who also sits on the company’s board, “the project that most inspires us is the one to develop sustainably.The one to create an environment of stability that allows us to think further ahead and benefit a greater number of stakeholders.”

The highest private-sector investment ever made in the state of Paraná, the project required total investment of R$8.5 billion, including infrastructure and recoverable taxes, and construction was completed in 24 months and within the initial budget.The Puma Unit will have annual production capacity of 1.5 million tons of pulp, with 1.1 million tons of bleached hardwood pulp (eucalyptus) and 400,000 tons of bleached softwood pulp (pine), a portion of which will be converted into fluff pulp.With power generation capacity of 270 MWavg and 150 MW of surplus power, which is sufficient to supply a city with a population of 500,000, the new operation further improves Klabin’s electricity self-sufficiency.The Puma Unit reinforces Klabin’s commitment to best sustainability practices by combining high forest productivity, efficient production and logistics operations and last-generation environmental technology.

“Puma is a Brazilian experience in excellence and boldness that we hope will serve as an example for the country that we want for our children and grandchildren.It reinforces Klabin’s already globally recognized commitment to the environment.And it shows that you can invest in projects that are concerned with social aspects, with this concern translated into dozens of projects involving health, education, housing and recreation,” said Schvartsman during the ceremony.

Klabin’s hardwood pulp is marketed under the brand LyptusCel™, while its softwood pulp was christened PineCel™.Called PineFluff™, Klabin’s fluff pulp, which for the first time in Brazil is produced on a large scale from softwood pulp, gives the domestic market the possibility of substituting imports of this raw material, which is an important input in the manufacture of diapers, disposable sanitary pads and other absorbent products.

The new mill’s operations were commissioned in March, with production of the first pulp bale, which already held Chain of Custody certification from FSC® - Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC-C129105).April marked the mill’s first shipment, with 20,000 tons of hardwood pulp departing the Port of Paranaguá destined for China.To export production from the Puma Unit, Klabin developed a Logistics Unit in Paranaguá that allows for the use of rail and highway freight solutions.With this new structure, the company expects to distribute 1 million tons of pulp every year.More than 90% of the mill’s production has already been sold.

With built-up area of 200 hectares, which is equivalent to 200 football fields, the construction project involved around 40,000 workers.In all phases of the project, the company prioritized the use of local labor.Today, the new unit is responsible for 1,400 direct and indirect jobs, considering both the industrial and forestry operations, and contributes to the local community through social actions, vocational training programs and projects to promote regional development.During the investment phase, R$700 million in taxes were generated, and with its startup, the mill will generate annual tax receipts of R$300 million.

To determine its social investments, in 2012, Klabin conducted a social diagnosis of the municipalities of Ortigueira, Imbaú and Telêmaco Borba, which represents the new mill’s direct area of influence.Through a broad participatory process that involved the many different stakeholders in urban and rural areas, it developed the Puma Project’s Social and Environmental Action Plan, which comprises various initiatives in the areas of health, education, culture, recreation, the environment, family farming, etc.

The plan’s infrastructure projects included paving roads in the districts of Campina and Minuano, improvements to the Strategic road and building a new bridge to connect the left and right banks of the Tibagi River.Klabin also built a 23.5-km rail branch connecting the mill to the Central do Paraná Railroad.The average distance between forest area and the Puma Unit is 72 km, assuring the mill a high level of competitiveness.Klabin’s forestry operation in the Telêmaco and Ortigueira region, which is one of the world’s largest, supplies both its Monte Alegre and Puma units.Klabin built 100 km of power transmission lines for the new mill, which features the world’s two largest power generation turbines to be manufactured for the pulp and paper industry.

klabinThe board of Brazilian paper producer Klabin SA (KLBAY, KLBN4.BR) approved an investment program of up to 6.8 billion Brazilian reais ($3.2 billion) to build a pulp producer plant in Brazil's southern Parana state.

The company said in a statement late Tuesday that it will finance expansion plans with the sale of its shares. Klabin said it also will use loans obtained from Brazil's National Development Bank, the BNDES, and export credit agencies, for additional financing.

Klabin said it expects to raise BRL1.7 billion from the sale of its shares. It didn't unveil a timetable for the shares sale or the volume expected to be raised from BNDES and export credit agencies.

Of the total to be invested, BRL5.3 billion will go toward construction of the factory. The rest pertains to ensuring the supply of the pulp plant the company is investing in its 107 thousand hectares of forest with pine and eucalyptus.

"The implementation of Project Puma (the name of the project), which is expected to begin on the first quarter of 2016, represents an important step for Klabin, in light of the significant increase of its production capacity, which will not only supply the markets of pulp, but will also enable future expansions in packaging paper machines, as well as provide operational gains and positive impacts in its financial results," the company said.

The new plant will be based in the city of Ortigueira, in the State of Parana, with the capacity to produce 1.5 million metric tons of pulp a year.

klabinBetween the 11th and 20th of June, Klabin’s Otacilio Costa Plant (SC) will be holding its Annual General Shutdown, a compulsory procedure which consists of interrupting paper production and is intended to ensure that all the necessary maintenance for the proper functioning of the mill is carried out with quality and in safety. This is a common procedure in the pulp and paper sector and occurs every year in the company’s plants.
 
During these ten days, about 50 contracted companies and 1,400 temporary workers will be involved in the General Shutdown. Among the principal activities programmed are inspections of boilers, digesters, power generation and distribution systems and production process controls. This amount of temporary workers requires logistics and infrastructure, involving transportation, lodgings and meals among other items which drive and boost the economy of the town of Otacilio Costa and the region. There are other additional benefits, such as the taxes generated for the municipality and extra movement in hotels, bars, restaurants and stores, as well as the services to assist the workers’ stay in the town.
 
During the days of the Shutdown, variations in odors and noise coming from the mill – especially on the 11th and 12th, at the beginning of the Shutdown, and on the 19th and the 20th, as machines start operating again – may be noticed by the community. It is important to note that these alterations cause no harm to people’s health nor to the environment.
 
As of this year, Klabin will have an exclusive channel available to attend the community which will function 24 hours a day. In the case of doubts concerning the environment, the community can get in touch with the company via the telephone number 0800 728 0607.
