Memphis, Tennessee, USA, 25 July 2008 – Verso Paper Corp.

“As always, we run our manufacturing operations so that we can achieve a balance between our supply of paper and the demand for paper by our customers,” said Verso President and CEO Mike Jackson. “We believe that this downtime will help us keep our supply and demand in balance.”
