Interfor Announces Successful Completion of its $100 Million Substantial Issuer Bid

Press Release

INTERFOR CORPORATION (“Interfor” or the “Company”) (TSX: IFP) announced today that it has taken up and paid for cancellation 3,355,704 common shares (“Shares”) at a price of $29.80 per Share (the “Purchase Price”) under its previously announced substantial issuer bid (the “Offer”).

The Shares purchased represent an aggregate purchase of $100 million and 6.1% of the total number of Interfor’s issued and outstanding Shares issued and outstanding as of July 25, 2022.

A total of 6,749,706 Shares were validly tendered to the Offer and not withdrawn. As the Offer was oversubscribed, shareholders who made auction tenders at or below the Purchase Price and shareholders who made, or were deemed to have made, purchase price tenders had approximately 98.8% of their tendered Shares taken up by Interfor (other than “odd lot” tenders, which were not subject to proration).

Interfor has accepted the Shares tendered for purchase and has made payment for the Shares by delivering the aggregate purchase price to Computershare Investor Services Inc., the depositary for the Offer (the “Depositary”). Payment and settlement with shareholders will be effected by the Depositary on or about September 15, 2022, all in accordance with the Offer and applicable law. Any Shares not purchased, including such Shares not purchased as a result of proration or Shares tendered pursuant to auction tenders at prices higher than the Purchase Price or invalidly tendered, will be returned to shareholders as soon as practicable.

To assist shareholders in determining the tax consequences of the Offer, Interfor estimates for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the “Tax Act”), that the paid-up capital per Share was $7.85 at September 8, 2022. The dividend deemed to have been paid by Interfor to Canadian resident persons is designated as an “eligible dividend” for purposes of the Tax Act and any corresponding provincial and territorial tax legislation.

For the purposes of subsection 191(4) of the Tax Act, the “specified amount” in respect of each Share is $30.60.

Full details of the Offer are described in the offer to purchase and issuer bid circular dated August 2, 2022, as well as the related letter of transmittal and notice of guaranteed delivery, copies of which are available on SEDAR at
