07:49 EDTIP, RKTFebruary fall in paper prices a modest negative, says Jefferies
Jefferies notes that according to PPW, unbleached kraft paperboard and solid unbleached sulfate prices fell modestly in February due to weak frozen food and beverage demand. The firm views the drop in SBS prices as a modest negative for RockTenn (RKT)/MeadWestvaco (MWV), Graphic Packaging (GPK) and International Paper (IP). It feels the impact should be limited, however, given the lag on the pass throughs in the converting business.

05:47 EDTBLLBall Corp. confirms deal to acquire Rexam
The boards of Ball Corp. (BLL) and Rexam (REXMY) announced that they have reached agreement on the terms of a recommended offer for the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of Rexam by Ball UK Acquisition Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ball. The Offer is to be effected by means of a court-sanctioned scheme of arrangement under Part 26 of the Companies Act. Under the terms of the Offer, Rexam Ordinary Shareholders will be entitled to receive for each Rexam Ordinary Share held 407 pence in cash and 0.04568 of a New Ball share. Ball will provide a Mix and Match Facility, which will allow Rexam Ordinary Shareholders to elect to vary, subject to the availability of offsetting elections, the proportions in which they receive New Ball Shares and cash. In addition, Rexam Ordinary Shareholders will be entitled to the 2014 Final Dividend of 11.9 pence announced by Rexam today, subject to shareholder approval, and to any other dividends declared or paid by Rexam in respect of any completed six-month period ended 30 June or 31 December between the date of this announcement and the date of the day before the Effective Date consistent with Rexam's past practice, provided that such dividends do not exceed the corresponding interim or final dividend paid or declared in respect of 2014. The combination is expected to be accretive to earnings per share within the first full year of completion and is in line with Ball's strategy to increase Economic Value Added dollars or returns greater than its weighted average cost of capital on its larger average invested capital base. The combination is expected to foster meaningful EVA dollar growth over the medium term. The Ball Board has approved the Offer and intends to recommend unanimously that Ball Shareholders vote in favour of the Offer. The receipt of competition authority clearances in the E.U. and U.S. is a Pre-Condition to the Offer. In addition, Ball and Rexam have agreed that the absence of a requirement to make material divestitures in the E.U. and the U.S. on a combined basis is a Condition of the Offer. It is expected that the Scheme Document will be posted to Rexam Shareholders shortly after the satisfaction or waiver of the Pre-Condition. The Offer is expected to complete in the first half of 2016.
