BillerudKorsnäs reevaluates forest land

BillerudKorsnäs has made a valuation of approximately 36 000 hectares of forest assets, of which approximately 18,000 hectares are productive forests, in which the biological assets are valued according to IAS41. At the same time, the company has chosen to change the accounting method for valuing forest land assets from the acquisition value to the revaluation model based on the fair value, mainly based on transaction prices for forest properties in comparable areas.

Most of the forests are located in mountain areas in Jämtland and Dalarna, where the share of productive forests is relatively low. About 2,000 hectares, of which 1,000 are productive, are located near the Group’s production facilities in Sweden.

This fair value significantly exceeds the previously recognized book value, by SEK 280 million. The value change related to biological assets of SEK 132 million will be recognized in the income statement and as an item affecting comparability in the 2020 second quarter results. The value change related to forest land of SEK 148 million will be recognized in Other Comprehensive Income.

BillerudKorsnäs expects to own another 15 400 hectares of forest assets as a result of the transactions with Bergvik Skog Öst AB during 2019, of which approximately 5 500 hectares are productive forest land, when the cadastral processes for these properties are finalized. These forest assets will be revalued according to the Group´s accounting principles, at that time.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
