The new prices will be $850 in the North American market and $830 in Europe for its northern bleached softwood (NBSK) grades."
This is continued good news for SFK and the pulp industry. Meanwhile, I count three NBSK pulp producers still in troubled waters, which i define as negative EBITDA's and high leverage. These are Pope and Talbot(825,000 tonnes/year), Tembec(800,000 tonnes), and Catalyst Paper(525,000 tonnes).Update: Also today, Catalyst announced the shutdown of 320,000 tonnes of yearly pulp production due to the B.C. union strike, which is causing a limitation of fiber in Western Canada.
