Montreal, Quebec, Canada, 12 May 2011 -- /PRNewswire/ -- Domtar Corporation (NYSE: UFS) (TSX: UFS) today announced that it entered into an accelerated share repurchase (ASR) agreement with a third party. Under the ASR agreement, the company is repurchasing CAD 150 million of its common stock with available cash on hand. This ASR agreement was entered into pursuant to the company's CAD 600 million share repurchase program announced on 04 May 2011.

Under the ASR agreement, the company will pay CAD 150 million to the third party in exchange for an initial delivery of 1,294,840 shares.
