RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION

On March 1, 2021, Resolute Forest Products Inc. (the “Company”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) its Annual Report on Form 10-K (the “Form 10-K”), which includes, at Item 8 thereof, its audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020, Management’s Report on Financial Statements and Assessment of Internal Control over Financial Reporting and the report thereon of its Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. (“PwC”), dated March 1, 2021.

Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K also includes the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020, Management’s Report on Financial Statements and Assessment of Internal Control over Financial Reporting, and the report of PwC thereon. The sole difference between Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and Item 8 to the Form 10-K is the inclusion in the audit report set forth in Exhibit 99.1 hereto of the Quebec professional permit number of the lead audit partner of PwC, which was intentionally omitted from the Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm as included in the Form 10-K. The Company is furnishing this Current Report on Form 8-K in order to comply with the Quebec professional license requirements regulating chartered professional accountants of the Province of Quebec, Canada, as applicable to PwC.

The information contained in Item 2.02 and Exhibit 99.1 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
