2. Strong Engineering and Innovation Capabilities

4. Strong Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

We believe Glatfelter has stable cash flows and a strong balance sheet to fund our dividend and on-going growth.

In 2018 and 2019, we executed several strategic actions that led to stronger cash flows and meaningful improvements in profitability. We expanded our airlaid capacity organically, acquired additional airlaid assets, divested our specialty paper business and resolved an environmental matter. We also settled our US pension obligations and refinanced our debt. As a result, we believe we are well positioned to accelerate growth and expand our leadership position in 2020 and beyond.
