Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada 27 March 2019 -- Conifex Timber Inc. ("Conifex", "we", "our") (TSX: CFF) announced today that it has entered into a definitive purchase agreement with certain subsidiaries of Canwel Building Materials Group Ltd.

The estimated working capital is subject to customary post-closing adjustments.

Ken Shields, Conifex's President and CEO, stated: "As we worked over the past several months capturing the synergies and integrating our two acquired US South mills into Conifex, it became apparent to us that Lignum's strength in lumber marketing and distribution would be well positioned for the future under the guidance of a company with a good reputation and with a single focus on marketing forest products."

Mr. Shields continued: "During our period of ownership, Lignum employees worked hard and compiled a consistent record of profitability, and we thank the employees of Lignum for their strong performance."
