Press ReleasesNippon Paper Industries to Revise Price of Beverage Cartons

Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd.

Nippon Paper Industries Co., Ltd (Head Office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President: Fumio Manoshiro) will revise the price of beverage cartons .

Items to be covered: Beverage cartons centering on NP-PAK
Increase in prices: Minimum 10%
Timing: For beverage cartons to be delivered on or after April 1, 2015

Imported base paper is the main raw material for beverage cartons.

Following the recent depreciation of the yen, imported base paper

prices have been rising sharply. It is difficult to overcome this recent

depreciation of the yen, by cost cutting alone, although we have been

endeavoring to do so to date. Therefore, we have concluded that we

have no alternative but to pass the higher prices on to product prices

and have consequently decided to revise them.
