International Paper quarterly profit drops 49 percent

Oct 25 (Reuters) - International Paper Co reported a 49 percent drop in third-quarter net earnings on Thursday, due in part to a decline in consumer packaging sales.

The company posted net earnings of $237 million, or 54 cents per share, compared with $468 million, or $1.08 per share, a year earlier.

Net sales rose 6 percent to $7 billion.
