Tembec’s third quarter results have left the wood products company with much to be desired.

The combined forces of a strong Canadian dollar, U.S. lumber duties, higher energy costs and reduced timber supplies led the company to post a $142.5 million loss, or $1.66 a share. This compares to a loss of $12.6 million, or 15 cents a share, just one year earlier.

The results also include an after-tax loss of $91.7 million or $1.07 a share, related to mill closures, and an after-tax loss of $16.8 million, or 20 cents a share, on the translation of its U.S. dollar-denominated debt.

After adjusting for these items and certain specific items, the company would have lost $49.8 million, or 58 cents a share.
