Company Overview

Business Description
PaperlinX (PPX) is a global merchant company supplying the printing and publishing industry and office supplies. PPX distributes fine paper and sign and display, graphics and industrial packaging materials to a wide range of customers in Europe, United Kingdom, North America, Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
Strategy Analysis
Following its exit from paper manufacturing, PPX is focused on improving its remaining merchanting businesses which have strong market share in Australia, US and European merchanting markets. International merchanting markets are large (estimated $30bn market value in North America, $22B in Europe). Strategies revolve around extracting efficiencies and reducing costs as well as expansion of its non paper merchanting operations. The company is undertaking a full strategic review of the business including addressing its unsustainable balance sheet structure. PaperlinX reported a net loss of $108m for the year ended 30 June 2011. Revenues from ordinary activities were $4.66bn, down 8% from last year. Basic and Diluted EPS was (21.4) cents compared to (38.9) cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $54.6m compared to $23.1m last year. No dividend was declared.
