International Paper (NYSE: IP) has entered into an agreement with West Coast Paper Mills Limited (NSE: WSTCSTPAPR) to sell its controlling interest in International Paper APPM Limited (NSE:IPAPPM | BSE:502330), an India-based paper business. International Paper currently owns approximately 30 million shares, or 75% of the outstanding shares, of International Paper APPM Limited (APPM).

2014 02 28 082945The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the year subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including obtaining required governmental approvals and West Coast Paper Mills Limited's (WCPM) launch of a tender offer. Pursuant to Indian securities law requirements, WCPM will launch a tender offer to acquire up to all of the APPM shares owned by public shareholders, which represents 25% of APPM's outstanding shares.  The closing of IP's transaction with WCPM will occur following the completion of the tender offer and receipt of antitrust clearance. Depending on the results of that tender offer, WCPM will acquire from IP between 51% and 60% of the outstanding APPM shares at a price per share of 275 Indian Rupees.  Once this transaction closes, WCPM will be responsible for the operations of APPM, and International Paper will be a passive investor until such time that IP has sold its remaining shares in APPM.

"As part of our strategic assessment of the IP portfolio, we have decided to exit our position in IP APPM," said Mark Sutton, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "This decision is a reflection of our continued focus on growing our global packaging and cellulose fibers businesses.  Our paper business continues to perform well in India and we wish the team there the very best in the future."

How much forest land—and what quality—is needed to ensure forests can continue to provide people, plants and animals worldwide with clean air and water, food and the goods and services they need to thrive?

IPLOGOThrough a new collaboration between World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and International Paper (NYSE: IP), research will be undertaken to help answer the question of the quantity and quality of forestland needed for the planet to thrive. The outputs of this work will be used to help create the world's first regional and global science-based targets for forests, as well as the first comprehensive set of guidance on actions that can be taken to sustain the world's forests. Such 'forest positive' actions include investing in responsible forest management, supporting forest conservation, restoring forestland, and raising awareness about the importance of forests with consumers.

"Our entire business depends on the sustainability of forests," said Sophie Beckham, IP Senior Manager of Natural Capital Stewardship. "We are excited to build on our participation in WWF's Global Forest & Trade Network program through a significant and strategic initiative to advance conservation and restoration actions in forest ecosystems beyond our existing fiber supply chains."

In addition to delivering on the UN Sustainable Development Goals at the global level, the collaboration also will bring one local action to life—investing in a new ambitious restoration project in the Mogi Guaçu river basin of the Atlantic Forest of Brazil. IP has operations and is already investing in restoration in this region, work that will ideally inspire other organizations to invest in forest restoration in Brazil and beyond.

"IP's investment and leadership will drive and deliver a better understanding of what forests need to stay well above their ecological tipping points," said Kerry Cesareo, vice president for forests at World Wildlife Fund.  "Given the large scale and fast pace of forest loss and degradation globally, bold and inspiring actions like this within the private sector are needed to sustain forests."

Through this expanded collaboration, IP demonstrates that investing in the long-term sustainability of natural capital makes economic sense. As a company that transforms renewable resources into fiber-based products that people depend on every day, IP will continue to promote responsible forest stewardship, both within and beyond its supply chains, to ensure healthy and productive forest ecosystems for generations to come.

 International Paper Company (NYSE: IP) have just confirmed that the company will not make an offer for Smurfit Kappa Group plc ('Smurfit Kappa'), given the lack of engagement by Smurfit Kappa's Board of Directors and Management.

IPLOGOIn February 2018, International Paper provided representatives of Smurfit Kappa's Board of Directors with a proposal to acquire the company. Following discussions with shareholders of both companies, IP put forward a revised proposal on March 26, 2018. IP believes the revised proposal was highly attractive and formed a sound basis for engagement, which the company viewed as essential to determining the full value potential of the combination.

"While we continue to believe in the strategic and financial potential of this combination, our commitment was to proceed in a disciplined manner that would create value for both sets of shareholders," said Mark Sutton, Chairman and CEO of International Paper. "Moving forward, we remain focused on executing our strategy and are excited about our outlook. We have many levers to create shareholder value and will be responsible stewards of our shareholders' capital," added Sutton.

As a result of this announcement, International Paper is bound by the restrictions set out in Rule 2.8 of the Irish Takeover Rules. International Paper reserves the right within the next 12 months to set aside this announcement where so permitted under Rule 2.8 (including Rule 2.8(c)(ii)).
