The Australian reports that emerging markets outweighed subdued results in developed markets. Overall revenues totalled $10.85 billion.
Amcor is Melbourne-based, but operates in 43 countries and sees only a 20th of its overall revenue from Australia.
Fairfax reports that Amcor is considering acquisitions totalling $3 billion. The company has made four bolt-on acquisitions in the last year.
“We have a 20 per cent pre-tax return
on investment hurdle and we have to make sure the acquisitions we make are
going to create solid returns for shareholders,” Fairfax reports CEO Ken MacKenzie as saying.
