DS Smith releases its Annual Report 2014

Our strategic 'Supply Cycle Thinking' approach, which addresses our customers' packaging needs throughout their supply chains, is highlighted in our first Annual Report under the unified DS Smith brand.

The report focuses on our performance for the year and describes how each of our divisions is contributing to our integrated business model.

Operating profits were up 23% on the previous year at £307 million, delivering earnings of 21.4p and a dividend of 10p per share for our shareholders, demonstrating the strength of the combination of our packaging, paper, recycling and plastics operations.

Combining our expertise from design to production and supply to recycling, enables us to provide the high quality, innovative, and environmentally friendly solutions that help our customers reduce waste, cost and complexity from their supply chains.
