Sonoco, the US-based packaging provider, is to broadcast a live webcast of its conference call announcing 2002 second quarter and first half financial results.
The event is to be held today, Wednesday, July 17, 2002, at 2 p.m. (ET), and will be hosted by Allan Cecil, vice president of Investor Relations and Corporate Affairs.
Harris DeLoach, president and CEO, and Charlie Hupfer, vice president and chief financial officer will also attend.
The announcement will be keenly observed by industry observers and analysts, as the paperboard and packaging sector struggles against rising materials costs. Sonoco has already announced two price increases for its European market in the space of the last month and one price increase for the US market.
