Interim Report January-June 2015

Bong has now fully implemented the comprehensive restructuring plan and the remaining factories are running at full capacity. The cash outflow for the restructuring plan will continue throughout the year and to some extent into Q1 2016. Due to the higher efficiency in production and the lower cost structure, Bong are now much more competitive in the tough envelope market. Given the high imbalance between paper supply and demand, Bong faces continued price increases from suppliers. As earlier mentioned, Bong’s biggest challenge for 2015 will be to increase the sales prices to the market in order to compensate for increased prices from suppliers, says Bong’s CEO Stéphane Hamelin.
