Clearwater Paper Corporation Completes Offering of $300 Million Aggregate Principal Amount of 5.375% Senior Notes Due 2025 and Announces Redemption of 7.125% Senior Notes Due 2018

Clearwater Paper Corporation announced that on July 29, 2014 it completed its previously announced offering of $300 million aggregate principal amount of 5.375% Senior Notes due 2025. The notes were issued pursuant to an indenture, dated as of July 29, 2014 (the Indenture), by and among the company, the existing direct and indirect domestic subsidiaries of the company and U.S. Bank National Association, a national banking association, as trustee. The notes were offered in the United States to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act) and outside the United States to non-U.S. persons in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. Interest on the Notes will accrue at the rate of 5.375% per annum and will be payable semiannually in arrears on February 1 and August 1, commencing on February 1, 2015. Interest on overdue principal and interest will accrue at a rate that is 1% higher than the then-applicable interest rate on the Notes. The company will make each interest payment to the holders of record of the Notes on the immediately preceding January 15 and July 15. The notes are unsecured and effectively subordinated to all of the company's existing and future secured debt, including borrowings under its existing secured revolving credit facility. The Notes are guaranteed by each of the company's existing direct and indirect domestic subsidiaries, and will be guaranteed by each of the company's future direct and indirect domestic subsidiaries, subject to certain exceptions (each, a Subsidiary). Each Subsidiary must provide a guarantee of the payment of principal, premium and interest on the notes on an unsecured basis. If the company is unable to make payments on the Notes when they are due, each subsidiary guarantor is obligated to make such payments. If the company experiences specific kinds of changes of control, the company must offer to repurchase the Notes from holders at a price of 100% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest to the repurchase date. On July 24, 2014, the company entered into the Ninth Amendment to the Loan and Security Agreement (the ABL Amendment) with Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent, and the financial institutions party thereto. The ABL Amendment amends the negative covenants contained in the Company's existing Loan and Security Agreement, dated as of November 26, 2008, as amended, to permit the offering of the Notes. On July 29, 2014, the Company notified the holders of the company's existing 7.125% Senior Notes due 2018 (the existing notes) that the company elected to redeem all of the currently outstanding $375 million aggregate principal amount of Existing Notes on August 28, 2014, in accordance with the indenture governing the Existing Notes. Using the proceeds from the issuance of the Notes, together with cash on hand and a draw under its revolving credit facility, the company irrevocably deposited with the Trustee sufficient funds to fund the redemption of the existing notes. As a result, the company's and the guarantors' obligations under the indenture governing the existing notes have been discharged.
