Norske Skog Walsum Cuts Production

Lysaker, Norway 31 October 2013 -- Norske Skog Walsum in Germany will permanently cease production at paper machine PM4. The machine has an annual production capacity of 225 000 tonnes. The shut down will take place in late December. Walsum's other paper machine, PM10, will continue to produce LWC (Light Weighted Coated) paper, with an annual production capacity of 200 000 tonnes.

- Due to overcapacity in the market for CM (coated mechanical) magazine paper, and unprofitable operations at the mill, we see no option but to shut down PM4 permanently. Despite considerable efforts from the employees to reduce costs, the decision is unfortunately inevitable, says Sven Ombudstvedt, President and CEO in Norske Skog.

Customers will receive deliveries from other Norske Skog mills and paper machines. All existing supply commitments will be honoured.
