August 7, 2018 - Western Forest Products Inc. has published its second-quarter results, noting that lumber shipments increased 21 per cent over Q2 2017 and nine per cent over Q1 2018.

The company reported adjusted EBITDA of $50.2 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $47.1 million in the second quarter of 2017.

Operating income prior to restructuring and other income was $39.7 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $37.7 million in second quarter of 2017, and $32.6 million reported in the first quarter of 2018. The increased lumber shipments and lower manufacturing costs in the second quarter of 2018 offset the impacts of $11.7 million of US export lumber duty expense and significantly higher stumpage costs.

Western also returned $8.9 million to shareholders via the company’s recently increased quarterly dividend.
