Exhibit 99.1



CINCINNATI, OHIO – October 31, 2017 – Multi-Color Corporation (NASDAQ: LABL) today completed its acquisition of the Labels Division of Constantia Flexibles from Constantia Flexibles GmbH in a cash and equity transaction valued at approximately $1.3 billion (€1.15 billion). The combined annual revenues of the two businesses will be approximately $1.7 billion. The combination brings together Constantia Labels’ high performing Food and Beverage business with Multi-Color’s strong Home and Personal Care and Wine and Spirits platforms, as well as its emerging global position in Healthcare. The acquisition will provide additional growth opportunities for Multi-Color in Home and Personal Care through Constantia Labels’ European operational footprint and assets, and for Constantia Labels in Food and Beverage through Multi-Color’s US operational footprint and assets. The stronger combined footprint in Asia will provide further revenue opportunities.

We are delighted to welcome Constantia’s 2,800 associates to the Multi-Color team, as well as Mike Henry, current Executive Vice President and Head of Constantia Labels, who today becomes CEO-elect of Multi-Color and will be appointed Chief Executive Officer in January 2018.
