    The recessionary situation in Europe continues to constitute a major
challenge for many in the industry as demand and volumes in the region
declined. For companies with global operations, such as MeadWestvaco, a
strong dollar and subsequent unfavorable foreign currency translation
also ate into revenue this quarter. Many saw their expenses increase due
to higher labor and benefit costs, as well as rises in manufacturing and
delivery expenses. See what our analysts have to say on MeadWestvaco

    Nevertheless, some industry players were successful in fueling volume
growth outside of Europe and improved pricing and favorable product mix
went some way to offsetting currency exchange headwinds. 

    Furthermore, improved efficiency, minimized energy, recycled fiber and
chemical costs helped some companies to contain rising costs. Others seem
to be focusing on acquisitions as a way into new geographies and markets.
While the potential for growth via strategic acquisitions is huge,
concerns remain regarding the highly leveraged state which can ensue. In
its recent earnings readings, Sealed Air Corporation reported losses
exceeding $1 billion as a result of pre-tax charge for the impairment of
goodwill and certain intangible assets related to Diversey Holdings, a
company it acquired for $4.3 billion. Analyst opinion on Sealed Air
