The $2.2 billion deal with International Paper completes Weyerhaeuser’s divestiture of its Cellulose Fibers business.
Weyerhaeuser said it completed the sale of its Cellulose Fibers pulp mills to International Paper.
The $2.2 billion cash deal was announced in May. Seattle-based Weyerhaeuser said it would use the $1.6 billion after-tax proceeds to repay debt.
The sale includes five pulp mills in Mississippi, Georgia, North Carolina and Alberta, as well as two modified fiber mills in Mississippi and Poland.
