Suzano has reportedly communicated its proposed offer of US$42 per share directly to IP’s board of directors and is expected to formalize the bid in the coming days. However, Reuters sources suggest that IP will likely rebuff Suzano’s advances, deeming the offer “inadequate.”

Based in Memphis, Tennessee, IP has refrained from commenting on the potential acquisition and instead emphasized its focus on finalizing its merger with DS Smith.

In a statement, IP affirmed its commitment to executing business strategies under new CEO Andy Silvernail, aimed at achieving superior profit margins and significant earnings growth. The company also noted its anticipation of improved industry conditions, signaling a positive turnaround in earnings.

Reuters reports that Suzano, as part of its bid strategy, is exploring debt financing options to support the acquisition, a move that demonstrates the company’s commitment to the deal. Suzano has also communicated to IP that its offer is contingent upon IP terminating its merger agreement with DS Smith, a strategic decision that could significantly impact the outcome of the acquisition.

According to a report from Investing.com, if Suzano’s proposed US$15 billion acquisition of IP materializes, it would mark the largest-ever deal in the sector, underscoring its potential magnitude and significance.
