In connection with the arrangement, the previous owners of Papiers Gaspesia will pay creditors and the city a part of the liabilities and expenses.

In 2002, Metso Paper received an order for a rebuild of the mill’s printing and writing line, a project that was expected to be finished mid-2004. Problems with financing saw the project halted early in the year. Now, in connection with the arrangement, Metso Paper has received roughly 4 million as a lump-sum payment, and has no remaining obligations to the project.
