“We are very pleased with our Adjusted EBITDA of $72.4 million in the third quarter of 2023, highlighted by robust sales volume in our Consumer segment and improved productivity from our network assets,” stated KP Tissue’s Chief Executive Officer, Dino Bianco. “We also benefited from a seasonally strong quarter, lower pulp and other input costs, as well as 2022 pricing carry over. As a result, we outperformed expectations despite an uncertain economic environment.''

“Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, we are seeing some moderation in input costs but continued inflationary pressure on our SG&A as labour, marketing, and IT costs, amongst others, continue to rise. We believe volume will continue to be strong and with our previously announced pricing, our margins will be stable.”
