Based on segments, International Paper’s worldwide revenue can be bifurcated as follows:
On 1 January, 2018, the company’s North American Consumer Packaging business, including its North American Coated Paperboard and Foodservice businesses, was completely transferred to Graphic Packaging International Partners, LLC, a subsidiary of Graphic Packaging Holding Company, in exchange for a 20.5% ownership interest in GPIP. GPIP subsequently transferred the North American Consumer Packaging business to Graphic Packaging International, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of GPIP that holds the assets of the combined business. Thus, this segment no longer generates revenue for the company.
