06:21 EDTPKGGraphic Packaging, Packaging Corp. could be targets, says Citigroup
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.
