EXPLANATORY NOTE

These Post-Effective Amendments (the “Post-Effective Amendments”) filed by Domtar Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), deregister any and all of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), remaining unissued and unsold, and any other securities issuable by the Company, under the following Registration Statements on Form S-8 (each a “Registration Statement,” and collectively, the “Registration Statements”):

 

   

Registration Statement No. 333-141213, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on March 8, 2007, registering 4,282,298 shares of Common Stock (on a post-split basis) for issuance under the Domtar Corporation Replacement Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan for Former Employees of Weyerhaeuser Company, the Domtar Corporation 1998 Replacement Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan for Former Employees of Weyerhaeuser Company, the Domtar Corporation 2004 Replacement Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan for Former Employees of Weyerhaeuser Company, the Domtar Inc. Executive Stock Option and Share Purchase Plan, the Domtar Inc. Executive Deferred Share Unit Plan (collectively, the “Legacy Plans”), the Domtar Corporation Amended and Restated Domtar Corporation 2007 Omnibus Incentive Plan (formerly, the Domtar Corporation 2007 Omnibus Incentive Plan) (the “Omnibus Incentive Plan”) and the Domtar Inc. Deferred Share Unit Plan for Outside Directors (the “DSU Plan”). On April 8, 2019, the Company filed Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the aforementioned Registration Statement to deregister the shares of Common Stock that remained available for issuance under the Legacy Plans. Such Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 did not affect the shares of Common Stock registered for issuance under the Omnibus Incentive Plan and the DSU Plan, which remain unissued and unsold as of the date hereof.

 

   

Registration Statement No. 333-181181, filed with the Commission on May 4, 2012, registering an additional 701,645 shares of Common Stock for issuance under the Omnibus Incentive Plan.

Effective November 30, 2021, pursuant to that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of May 10, 2021, by and among the Company, Karta Halten B.V., a private limited company organized under the laws of the Netherlands (“Parent”), Pearl Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and a subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), Paper Excellence B.V., a private limited company organized under the laws of the Netherlands and Hervey Investments B.V., a private limited company organized under the laws of the Netherlands, Merger Sub merged with and into the Company, with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation and a subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger”).

As a result of the Merger, the Company is terminating all offerings of its securities pursuant to the Registration Statements. The purpose of these Post-Effective Amendments to the Registration Statements is to deregister any and all of the previously registered shares of Common Stock that remain unissued and unsold under the Registration Statements. The Company, by filing these Post-Effective Amendments to the Registration Statements pursuant to Rule 478 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, hereby terminates the effectiveness of the Registration Statements, and removes from registration any and all securities registered but unsold under the Registration Statements as of the date hereof.
