Wausau Paper Announces Capital Allocation Target Declares $0.03 Dividend

Wausau Paper’s (NYSE:WPP) Board of Directors today declared a quarterly dividend of $0.03 per share on the Company’s common stock and announced that it has determined that the Company will be targeting a return of approximately 50% of free cash flow to shareholders through dividends or share repurchases.

Henry C. Newell, president and CEO of Wausau Paper, commented, “With the focus of our company narrowed to Tissue and the elements of growth, operational optimization and strategic repositioning well underway, we are well-positioned for the future. The Board has established as a priority the return of capital to shareholders, which will increase over time as we continue to grow our business and free cash flow.”

The Company also said it will provide fourth quarter 2013 and full year 2014 guidance in its upcoming earnings announcement on Monday, October 28, 2013.

The dividend is payable November 15, 2013, to shareholders of record at the close of business on November 1, 2013.

In determining free cash flow, the Company will be considering net cash flow provided by operating activities less payments for property and equipment. The Company’s policy on return of capital to shareholders is subject to continuing review by the Company’s Board of Directors, discussions with the Company’s lenders, business and general economic conditions, as well as other capital allocation priorities that may in the future be established by the Company. There can be no assurance that, in any particular determination period, the Company’s return of capital will be at target levels; actual payout amounts may be more or less than the target in any particular quarter or other measurement period.
