What’s in a name? A lot, according to NorskeCanada, who is seeking to change its official signature to Catalyst Paper Corporation.
“Our new name will help us clear up any lingering confusion among stakeholders about who we are,” said Russell J. Horner, president and CEO. “We are an independent Canadian companyand it is time we were known by a name that is distinctively our own,” he added in reference to the confusion that sometimes crops us concerning the pulp and paper company Norske Skog. “We appreciate our relationship with Norske Skog who is supportive of this change and will continue to bring value to the company through board input.”
This is not the first name-change for the Vancouver-based company. Formerly, it had been known as Fletcher Challenge Canada for its parent company before it had been bought by Norske Skog in 2000.
October 3rd will mark a meeting of shareholders to seek approval of the name change.
