US Department of Commerce imposed no CVD on Catalyst’s supercalendered paper with its final ruling

Catalyst Paper Corporation announced that the US Department of Commerce (DOC) issued Final Results in its expedited review of the company. According to the announcement, received a negligible (de minimis) amount of subsidies during the applicable review period.

Therefore, the company will be excluded from the countervailing duty (CVD) order on supercalendered (SC) paper.

Joe Nemeth, Catalyst Paper’s President & Chief Executive Officer, commented:

We are pleased with the result, which confirms the DOC’s November 2016 preliminary finding that Catalyst did not receive any material subsidies from the provincial or federal governments.

Catalyst would like to recognize and thank Premier Christy Clark and her government, along with the Government of Canada, for their defence of our company, our workers and our operating communities in this lengthy, cross-border trade dispute

Earlier Catalyst Paper completed recapitalization and privatization.
