Mr. Lee continued: "In the fourth quarter of 2012, although pulp supply and demand was generally balanced, prices were mostly stagnant with only marginal price increases. At the end of 2012, list prices in Europe were approximately $810 per ADMT and in North America and China were approximately $870 and $655 per ADMT, respectively."Mr. Lee added: "In 2012, we continued to implement capital projects designed to enhance our mills' operating efficiencies and increase pulp and energy production. We completed an upgrade to the Rosenthal mill's recovery boiler in mid-2012 to increase production capacity and lower operating costs and emissions. In 2012, our Stendal mill commenced Project Blue Mill which is designed to increase its pulp and green energy production capacity by approximately 30,000 ADMTs and 109,000 MWh, respectively. The project is currently on schedule and budget and is currently expected to be completed and start to generate power sales in or about September 2013."
