International Paper Files Updated Financial Statements to Reflect Segment Reporting Changes
Memphis, Tennessee, USA, 14 August 2007 -- /PRNewswire/ -- International Paper (NYSE:IP) today announced that it has updated the historical financial statements included in its 2006 annual report to reflect first-quarter 2007 changes in segment reporting and the adoption of the direct method of accounting for planned major maintenance expenses.

In connection with sales of businesses under International Paper's transformation plan and the resulting changes in its business portfolio, the company conducted a review of its operating business segments during the first quarter of 2007. While this review resulted in no changes in reportable segments, a decision was made to include the company's European coated paperboard operations, previously reported in the Printing Papers segment, with other similar operations in the Consumer Packaging segment.

Accordingly, the operating results of the company's European coated paperboard operations were reported as part of the company's Consumer Packaging segment in its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods ended 31 March 2007, and 30 June 2007. The company is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K to reflect the effect of this change in segment reporting on previously issued financial statements. This will permit the company to incorporate these financial statements by reference in future SEC filings.
