Full Year 2023 Financial Results released on 17 August were also solid, with revenues increasing 4.9%, underlying net profit after tax up 8.5%, and dividend payments up 6.1%. The stock went into a trading halt, pending a transaction, which was updated on 31 August with the announcement of the potential acquisition of Saverglass, a manufacturer of high-end glass bottling. The stock price began to slide.

The cost of the acquisition, the capital raise, and debt financing to pay for it soured investor appetite for the shares; however, it piqued the interest of analysts as Orora announced Saverglass would contribute to corporate earnings in its first year of operation.

Orora’s current dividend yield is 6.44%, with a five-year average yield of 4.7% and five-year average dividend payments of $0.14 per share, unfranked.

An analyst at Seneca Financial Solutions has a BUY recommendation on Orora shares, pointing to the share price “trading below average price/earnings ratio levels,” pushing the stock into trading at a discount. In addition, the Saverglass acquisition gives Orora new market share opportunities.
