TD Securities analyst…

TD Securities analyst Sean Steuart lowered the firm's price target on Mercer to $15 from $17 and keeps a Hold rating on the shares. He lowered target prices for seven of the 10 companies in his coverage universe, noting that forest product equities remain under pressure as investors discount an increasingly negative macroeconomic outlook. However, Steuart reiterates an Overweight bias on the sector given that balance sheets are in significantly better shape than was the case entering previous recessions and he believes current valuations "assume an overly negative outlook."

Reports Q1 revenue…

Reports Q1 revenue $592.741M vs $412.720M last year. David Gandossi, the Chief Executive Officer, stated: "Our robust first quarter operating results were driven by strong sales volumes, increased pulp, lumber and energy pricing and our German mills' sales of surplus energy into the spot market. These positive effects were only partially offset by higher costs for key inputs including fiber, energy and chemicals. Despite the impact of such cost inflation, we believe that our cost control measures will help mitigate the effect of increases going forward and we see our surplus energy sales as a strong hedge for higher energy prices."

Reports Q4 revenue…

Reports Q4 revenue $518.96M, two estimates $453.05M. David Gandossi, the CEO, stated: "I am pleased with our record fourth quarter operating results which were driven by strong sales volumes and steady pulp and lumber pricing and by materially higher energy prices in Germany for our surplus green energy sales. We also benefitted from the settlement of our business interruption insurance claim associated with the downtime taken in 2021 to rebuild our Peace River mill's recovery boiler. Our annual Operating EBITDA also set a new benchmark which significantly surpasses our prior high and highlights the cash generating power of our world class assets."

RBC Capital analyst Paul Quinn upgraded Mercer to Outperform from Underperform with a price target of $15, up from $8. The analyst notes that the outlook for pulp market has "markedly improved" in the short-term due to significant supply disruptions, while the medium-term is also looking better due to the delayed start-up of new capacity. Mercer should also see one-time gains from European power prices and a repeat of strong lumber prices, Quinn tells investors in a research note.

RBC Capital analyst Paul…

RBC Capital analyst Paul Quinn downgraded Mercer to Underperform from Sector Perform with a price target of $8, down from $10. 2022 will be challenging for Mercer's pulp business given the potential combination of a negative demand shock amid Chinese energy curtailments and a sharp rise in low-cost BEK capacity, the analyst tells investors in a research note. A rating cut is warranted by the negative industry outlook, the company's leverage to pulp pricing, and relatively higher debt levels, Quinn adds.
