Western Forest Products Files Notice of Default
Duncan, British Columbia, Canada, 25 May 2007 -- /PRNewswire/ -- Further to its news release of 15 May 2007, Western Forest Products Inc. announced today that the release of its interim financial statements and related management discussion and analysis for its first quarter ended 31 March 2007, has been delayed further.

As previously announced, the delay is the result of the implementation of new accounting information technology systems and the adoption of a new accounting policy. Western anticipates being in a position to file its first quarter report within approximately two weeks.

In advance of the 15 May filing deadline, Western notified the securities regulators of the anticipated filing default and applied for the issuance of a management cease trade order. The order, issued 22 May 2007 by the British Columbia Securities Commission, as Western's principal regulator, prohibits trading in Western's shares by its directors, officers, and other insiders until the first quarter report is filed. Western has since filed with the regulators an update to its original notice, advising that it now expects to file its first quarter report within approximately two weeks.
