Cascades Renews Its Normal Course Issuer Bid

KINGSEY FALLS,QC, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Cascades Inc. (TSX: CAS) announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange accepted its notice of intention to begin a normal course issuer bid in respect of its Common Shares.  Purchases pursuant to the normal course issuer bid will commence on March 15, 2013 and will not continue beyond March 14, 2014.  The Common Shares purchased shall be cancelled.

The notice will enable Cascades to acquire up to 2,816,753 Common Shares which represents approximately 3% of the 93,891,776 issued, and outstanding Common Shares as of March 1 st, 2013. Since March 1 st, 2012, Cascades purchased 482,686 Common Shares at an average weighted cost of $4.33.

The average daily trading volume of Cascades' Common Shares was 88,213 on the Toronto Stock Exchange over the last six completed calendar months (the ADTV). Accordingly, Cascades is entitled to purchase up to 25% of the ADTV on any trading day being 22,053 Common Shares.

All purchases will be made through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange in accordance with its requirements.

Cascades considers that the shares to be acquired may, from time to time, be undervalued in the market and represent an excellent opportunity to enhance shareholder value.

Founded in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibres. The Corporation employs more than 12,000 employees, who work in more than 100 units located in North America and Europe. With its management philosophy, half a century of experience in recycling, and continuous efforts in research and development as driving forces, Cascades continues to serve its clients with innovative products. Cascades' shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange, under the ticker symbol CAS.
