Updated Operational Outlook for Q4 2021

The Company expects Q4 2021 consolidated adjusted OIBD1 to be approximately $20 million below third quarter comparable results of $107 million, versus previous guidance of flat sequential results. The decrease is the result of ongoing inflationary pressure on costs, most notably logistics, energy and labour. Furthermore, global supply chain pressures, including the availability of transportation and labour remains challenging, the effects of which are disrupting product delivery times. Demand levels in the tissue segment remain uncertain, while those for packaging products remain solid.

Mario Plourde, President and CEO commented: "The Covid-19 pandemic continues to have wide ranging impacts across our business segments, and we continue to proactively communicate with our customers to meet their dynamic needs throughout this volatile business climate.
