Paper Excellence Welcomes Resolute Into Its Family of Companies (3/01/23)

RICHMOND, BC, March 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ - The Paper Excellence Group (the "Group"), through its wholly-owned subsidiary Domtar Corporation ("Domtar"), today announced the successful closing of its previously announced acquisition of Resolute Forest Products Inc. ("Resolute") (NYSE: RFP) (TSX: RFP). Today's acquisition creates a stronger and more resilient diversified forest products company, manufacturing a range of pulp products and specialty, printing, writing, and packaging papers, as well as lumber and tissue. The acquisition of Domtar in 2021 and Resolute today significantly increases the Group's scale, overall product offering and geographic reach.

"We are thrilled to welcome Resolute into the Paper Excellence Group. Resolute's business is complementary to our own. It introduces new products to our offering and allows us to welcome an impressive workforce, strengthening our existing team. We are well positioned with the addition of competitive lumber capacity at a time of significant shortage in housing stock throughout North America," stated Patrick Loulou, Vice Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer of the Paper Excellence Group. "Resolute has shown that it shares our values and high standards related to the environment, our communities, and our people."

"Together we are creating a stronger player in the global marketplace. We look forward to collaborating with our new colleagues, generating long-term value and driving sustainable economic activity in the communities where we operate," said Remi G. Lalonde, Resolute's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The combined company will adopt best practices, sharing a common goal of sustainability leadership, and meaningful community engagement and partnerships, including with Indigenous communities."

Under the terms of the agreement, Resolute stockholders are receiving $20.50 for each share of the Resolute common stock. They also receive one contingent value right ("CVR") per share (on a fully diluted basis) entitling the holder to a share of potential future softwood lumber duty deposit refunds on about $500 million of deposits paid by Resolute. Resolute common stock will cease to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange.

For the transaction. Objectively, it is a great deal that can only boost the company. In addition, as we keep the expertise in place, by its management, the Cie will surely develop greater challenges. I do not know the Asian buyer, but if they are like M Watsa, it is surely good people, who will be able to benefit the interest of the shareholder.

It is really unfair, for us, all the former shareholders of the CIE (ABWTQ) to have nothing for this transactions. It would not have been very expensive to compensate for us. Faithful employee and shareholder, for 40 years, and to see that an elite make so much money, is frustrating and scandalous. Our capitalist democracies must stop destroying small shareholders by their weapons of mass destruction (CDS), because ethics is the only virtue, which our world needs most, to dominate the global economy. If not, authoritarian regimes will be right for our unscrupulous and devastating ideology.

Well Canadian rail and road voted 94% for a strike which may start in 48-72 hrs.
This is not a good sign if it happens. Nothing is going to move out of Canada. 1 strike day will take 4-6 days to come back to normal.

fishhunter fishhunter 2 years ago
I have no idea what you are talking about. Haven’t heard or read anything about a strike. But if there is one it will not hurt lumber or paper or pulp companies. Result would be pent up demand and crazy high prices.

blast1977 blast1977 2 years ago
What about the Strike on road and rail that will happen next week
This will impact number for sure Unless they are able to sell the Tissue division soon for a big chunk of money
Your thought ?

Good to see your posts here. RFP is still so undervalued, just crazy. Ev/ebitda of 1. Essentially no debt. Pension will be overfunded within a year due to int rate rise. The Q1 they are in now will generate over $400mil in free cash flow. Half the market cap! Insanity.

Big news coming up ?? seems that they gave up on the Tissue and cut their loss.

No we know why the Buy back in place to support the news about Calhoun I bet most of the repurchased shares will be used for this announcement
👍️0
blast1977 blast1977 3 years ago
Big decision about Calhoun but what’s the plan on how to make money ???
I still do not see a vision for the company and if Tissue is supposed to be why they did not announced any projects since the 2017 ?
I m undecided. All I see is cutting losses and burning big amount of cash to clean the books.

fishhunter fishhunter 3 years ago
I am back in. Started buying after the recent stock buyback announcement and love today's news about Calhoun paper and pulp. Both of these are important because they are crystal clear confirmation that the new COB, Davies is able to exert his will! This will be a $50 stock in a few years.

blast1977 blast1977 3 years ago
What you all think of the 3Q ? As usual RFP goes down after the publication.
I guess any fallback to $10 is a big opportunity.

fishhunter fishhunter 3 years ago
Long and strong.....again!
The valuation metrics, PS, PB, EV/ebitda, PE are all too strong for me to stay away. I simply would rather own it than not own it. And if you want a little income as you wait, strategically sell a few covered calls.

fishhunter fishhunter 3 years ago
Bought more shares after recent drop.
No sense in selling calls any more.
In fact, buying calls is a decent bet now.
Lumber stabilized and starting to rise.

For now, sell near term covered calls. Wash, rinse, repeat.

That will say that the price will drop by $1 but the option will cost the same
Okay was not sure thx

I don’t know for sure but I don’t think the options adjust at all. Look at some big blue chips that pay dividends, their options don’t adjust.

blast1977 blast1977 3 years ago
Alright got a question about that dividend. If u hold options when the dividend get paid how the option will adjust?

I agree with you, RFP is way too cheap at the moment.
And this moment aint lastin long.
See ya in the 20s soon.

blast1977 blast1977 3 years ago
Well well
Even with Lumber at $1200 I totally think RFP is worth a lot more.
Tissue will be in the RED big time but lumber should still make the $200M
Buying back

i am trying to do an addition to my house and lumber is no where to be found. each time i get the run around from my contractor (not really a run around as it is true), i buy more of this stock...

Don’t jinx it bro. We are back in the $1500

Lumber is not crashing anytime soon so that is our beautiful hedge my friend
👍️0
fishhunter fishhunter 3 years ago
There is always risk in owning a stock.
If lumber were to crash to sub $700 then RFP goes down hard.
But pulp is also a big factor that could support the stock quite easily all by itself.

I do not know but the title is very undervalued. Considering a US economy at the outflow of pandemic, with a growth of 6% of PIB, timber prices should still be at a good level, due to strong demand. Finally, we can conclude that the CIE benefits from this crisis, and again, which will allow it to strengthen its restructuring. That is, that factory closures like Comeau Bay and AMOS, will allow CIE to cut its losses in the decline of paper, and enjoy, delightful subsidies, to develop new revolutionary products.
