Greif, Inc. Attends Baird Global Industrial Conference; Reaffirms Fiscal Year 2023 Guidance

DELAWARE, Ohio, Nov. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greif, Inc. (NYSE:GEF, GEF.B)), a global leader in industrial packaging products and services, today reaffirms that fiscal 2023 results will be within the previously provided guidance range of Adjusted EBITDA of $790 million to $820 million1 in anticipation of participation in the Baird Global Industrial Conference in Chicago, IL on Wednesday, November 8, 2023. The materials presented at this conference will be accessible online the morning of the conference through the Investors section of the Company's website located at

This guidance reaffirmation is attributable to performance in-line with expectations for the fiscal fourth quarter in both Paper Packaging & Services (PPS) and Global Industrial Packaging (GIP). GIP volumes remained soft in all regions and most end markets during the quarter, with no positive volume inflections through October; the GIP business also faced a less favorable price / cost dynamic in Q4 as falling steel costs and the continued volume softness pressured margins. The PPS business experienced continued converting and mill volume weakness, both down mid-single digits year-over-year through the fourth quarter despite improved containerboard volumes in October, in addition to sequentially lower published RISI pricing and rising OCC costs.

The Company will report its fiscal fourth quarter 2023 financial results after the market closes on Wednesday, December 6, 2023. A conference call will be held on Thursday, December 7, 2023, at 8:30 a.m. ET. Conference call details are available at
