What distinguishes Catalyst Paper?

Balance Sheet Strength

A recent reorganization cut our debt load by $390 million or 60 per cent. Competitive bond and credit facility terms enable us to service our remaining debt, meet other cash flow requirements, and invest prudently in our business.

Cost Competitive

A long-standing focus on cost containment took a big leap forward with a $70 million reduction in annual interest and other cash costs achieved through our reorganization. Operational rationalization and machine optimization give our mills flexibility to adjust with order book requirements.

Product Range and Innovation

Our broad range of publication papers is unrivaled in Western North America and our leadership in lighter basis weight paper production is well-suited for today’s needs. Ongoing product innovation and excellent customer service makes us a reliable, agile one-stop supplier able to anticipate and adjust with the market.

Sustainability Expertise

We were among the first to act on the greenhouse gas challenge and did so decisively and effectively. Strong partnerships with leading environmental groups are helping sustain our progress on such key considerations as fibre origin and certification, and energy and water use.

Strong Manufacturing Base

Our three mills are located within a 100-mile radius on the west coast, with efficient access to multi-modal transportation options reaching across North America, around the Pacific Rim and beyond. Our mills meet the challenging speed, efficiency and product-quality requirements of today’s customers.

Strong Customer Base

We are a preferred and long-standing supplier to a range of household-name publishing and retail brands whose marketing strategies epitomize the ongoing relevance of print in the media mix. A reputation for service excellence helps sustain a strong order book and a high profile across all our end-use segments.

Equity Investment

Upon the conclusion of it recent reorganization, the large majority of Catalyst's common shares were held by former bondholders. While a Small Shareholder Selling Program is in effect until February 28, 2013 (unless extended), limited trading is anticipated in the immediately foreseeable future. Meaningful share price and volume tracking data is therefore not available at the current time.
