Domtar, Paper Excellence Merger Receives Canadian Competition Bureau Approval

CANADA (News release) -- Paper Excellence B.V. and Domtar Corporation jointly announced that they have received Canadian Competition Act approval for their business combination whereby Karta Halten B.V., an affiliate of Paper Excellence, will acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Domtar common stock for $55.50 per share in cash pursuant to an agreement and plan of merger dated May 10, 2021 (the "Merger").

The consent agreement filed by the Canadian Commissioner of Competition ("Commissioner") with the Competition Tribunal today fulfills the final condition to the closing of the Merger. The consent agreement requires that, following the closing of the Merger, Domtar's pulp mill in Kamloops, British Columbia be sold to resolve the Commissioner's concerns about the Merger's implications on the purchase of wood fibre from the Thompson/Okanagan region in British Columbia.

The transaction remains on course to close in the fourth quarter of this year.
