  • Corporate expenses, excluding net cash interest expense, totaled $39.0 million in 2012 compared to $31.4 million in 2011. The variance is primarily due to higher pension expense related to the company's legacy plans, increased compensation expenses and mark to market adjustments related to deferred compensation plans. Net cash interest expense totaled $23.6 million in 2012 compared to $25.0 million in 2011.

New Unsecured Credit Agreement

In December 2012, Potlatch closed a new five-year, unsecured $250 million credit facility, which may be increased by up to an additional $100 million of principal amount. This agreement replaces the existing secured credit agreement maturing in December 2013 and includes significantly improved terms. Concurrent with the signing of the new agreement, all of the mortgages on the company's timberlands and other liens and security interests securing the previous credit agreement and the company's 6.95% Debentures and Medium-Term Notes were released. The interest rate under the new credit agreement can range from 1.25 percent to 2.50 percent compared to 3.00 percent to 4.00 percent under the previous agreement.
