A survey conducted by the consultancy firm Economatica analyzed the most profitable stocks of BM&FBovespa over the last four years. Klabin ranked third on the list showing earnings of 198.32% during the period. The company is the only one from the pulp and paper sector to be part of this survey. Klabin’s stock has given a positive yield in 30 months and provided higher earnings than Ibovespa in 27 months, reaching an average daily financial volume of R$ 20.401 million. These results are a reflection of Klabin’s strategy to focus on reducing costs, on constantly improving its forestry and industrial operations and on its mix of products and markets.
