Print
Memphis, Tennessee, USA, 07 December 2006 -- /PRNewswire/ -- International Paper (NYSE:IP) today announced that, according to information provided by Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the depositary and information agent for the company's previously announced tender offer, an aggregate principal amount of USD 3.64 billion of the bonds listed below were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or before 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on 06 December 2006 (the early tender date for the offer).

On 22 November 2006, International Paper announced its offer to purchase a portion of its debt securities specified in the table following this release, subject to a total purchase price of USD 2.35 billion (excluding accrued interest, fees, and expenses). The full terms and conditions of the tender offer are set forth in the company's offer to purchase and related letter of transmittal, each dated 22 November 2006.

The amount of each series of bonds that are purchased in the tender offer will be determined in accordance with the priorities identified in the column "Acceptance Priority Level" in the table following this release. The tender offer will expire at 12:00 midnight, Eastern time, on 20 December 2006, unless extended by the company. The table following this release identifies the aggregate principal amount of each series of notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn on or before the early tender date. Because an amount in excess of USD 2.35 billion in aggregate principal amount of bonds were tendered as of the early tender date, International Paper will not accept all of the notes tendered for purchase.
