09:34 EDTIPInternational Paper says continuing to evaluate MLP structure
International Paper management said on the company's Q4 earning conference call that they are continuing to evaluate whether the MLP structure is the best vehicle to create value for IP and its shareholders. The company continues to be interested in the opportunity, noting that it is a complicated one though they have not seen anything that "would say we need to shut down the analysis or that it's a no go." Since its last call, International Paper has filed a request with the IRS to get a private letter ruling, though it "remains a little unclear on how that might proceed," the company added. The company is evaluating the MLP opportunity because it "has the potential to be part of our value creation strategy," IP noted.

Citigroup believes the merger between Rock-Tenn (RKT) and MeadWestvaco (MWV) makes sense and that the combined company has 16% upside potential from current levels. Citi believes the $300M synergy target could prove conservative and raised its price target for Rock-Tenn shares to $77 from $72. It thinks smaller players in the Paper & Forest products space, Graphic Packaging (GPK) and Packaging Corp. (PKG), could be potential takeover targets either for an acquirer or for a merger following the Rock-Tenn/MeadWestvaco deal. Citi views International Paper (IP) as a potential acquirer.
