AbitibiBowater will change its name to Resolute Forest Products as of November 7, saying the new identity reflects the fundamental characteristics of the company, including its determination, strength, and resolve to be a profitable, sustainable organization.

Earlier this year, employees were invited to suggest a new name for the company. An internal selection committee chose Resolute Forest Products from among approximately 1400 employee submissions. The French version will be Produits forestiers Résolu.

On November 7, the company will begin using Resolute Forest Products and the related visual identity on its marketing materials, web site, signage, and other communications. However, AbitibiBowater Inc. and its subsidiaries will not change their legal entity names until the company obtains shareholder approval as required by law. Formal shareholder approval will be requested at the company’s 2012 Annual General Meeting.

For customers, suppliers and other stakeholders, little will change beyond how the company will refer to itself and its products. AbitibiBowater produces lumber, pulp, and paper at locations in Canada and the U.S.
