Nexfor Inc. has signed an agreement to sell its sawmills at La Sarre and Senneterre, QC, to Tembec for approximately $50 million plus working capital.
Nexfor said it would record a pre-tax gain of approximately $19 million US on the sale.
The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2003.
The sawmills, which are not integrated with Nexfor’s paper business, have a combined annual production of 260 million board feet of lumber. Nexfor’s oriented strand board (OSB) operations at La Sarre and Val-d’Or, QC, will not be affected by the sale.
