June 6, 2019
François Olivier, President and
Chief Executive Officer,
"We have just proudly marked the first anniversary of our transformational acquisition of Coveris Americas and we are very satisfied with it, said François Olivier, President and Chief Executive Officer of TC Transcontinental. This acquisition is performing in line with our plan and has seen a gradual increase in its profit margins from quarter to quarter over the past year. In the second quarter of 2019, Coveris Americas contributed significantly to our revenues and profitability in the Packaging Sector. We remain focused on improving our profit margins, which should continue to progressively increase in the coming quarters, notably by realizing our synergies.
"On the printing side, our results continued to reflect more moderate performance in some of our verticals, including our retailer-related service offering. As we have always done, we are working to align our printing network's capacity and our costs with our business volume. Among other things, during the quarter, we installed state-of-the-art presses in our Canadian platform and we recently announced the closure of a plant. These measures should enable us to improve our cost structure and positively contribute to this sector's profitability.
"In summary, we expect to continue generating significant cash flows, which will first be allocated to reducing our indebtedness, while continuing to execute our business plan."
