International Paper Company

Business Description

International Paper Company, is a global forest products, paper and packaging company that is complemented by an extensive distribution system, with primary markets and manufacturing operations in the United States, Canada, Europe, the Pacific Rim and South America. We are a New York corporation and were incorporated in 1941 as the successor to the New York corporation of the same name organized in 1898. Our home page on the Internet is www.internationalpaper.com.

The Company operated 26 pulp, paper and packaging mills, 88 converting and packaging plants, 25 wood products facilities, and seven specialty chemicals plants. Production facilities in Europe, Asia, Latin America, South America and Canada included 10 pulp, paper and packaging mills, 44 converting and packaging plants, 10 wood products facilities, two specialty panels and laminated products plants and six specialty chemicals plants. We distribute printing, packaging, graphic arts, maintenance and industrial products principally through over 270 distribution branches located primarily in the United States. We owned or managed approximately 8.3 million acres of forestlands in the United States, mostly in the South, approximately 1.5 million acres in Brazil and had, through licenses and forest management agreements, harvesting rights on government- owned forestlands in Canada and Russia. Substantially all of our businesses have experienced, and are likely to continue to experience, cycles relating to available industry capacity and general economic conditions.

Carter Holt Harvey, a New Zealand company which is approximately 50.5% owned by International Paper, operates five mills producing pulp, paper, packaging and tissue products, 23 converting and packaging plants and 72 wood products manufacturing and distribution facilities, primarily in New Zealand and Australia. In New Zealand, Carter Holt Harvey owns or leases approximately 795,000 acres of forestlands.

For management and financial reporting purposes, our businesses are separated into six segments: Printing Papers; Industrial and Consumer Packaging; Distribution; Forest Products; Carter Holt Harvey; and Specialty Businesses and Other.

Competition and Costs

Despite the size of the Company's manufacturing capacities for paper, paperboard, packaging and pulp products, the markets in all of the cited product lines are large and highly fragmented. The markets for wood and specialty products are similarly large and fragmented. There are numerous competitors, and the major markets, both domestic and international, in which the Company sells its principal products are very competitive. These products are in competition with similar products produced by others, and in some instances, with products produced by other industries from other materials.
