West Fraser Timber Mulls Acquisitions

West Fraser Timber Co. Ltd. (TSX:WFT) is looking for acquisitions. Ted Seraphim, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “Well, I think we really have kind of a three-pronged approach in terms of using our cash flow. The first one is obviously capital. The second one, our acquisitions we made three this year. We are continuing to look at smaller acquisitions, Sean, and then the third one is a share buyback. So I don't think one is mutually exclusive of the other. We are really looking at all three, to be honest with you.”
