RESOLUTE FOREST PRODUCTS INC.
Notes to Unaudited Interim Consolidated Financial Statements
Note 1. Organization and Basis of Presentation
Nature of operations
Resolute Forest Products Inc. (with its subsidiaries, either individually or collectively, unless otherwise indicated, referred to as “Resolute Forest Products,” “we,” “our,” “us,” “Parent,” or the “Company”) is incorporated in Delaware. We are a global leader in the forest products industry with a diverse range of products, including market pulp, tissue, wood products and paper, which are marketed in over 60 countries. We own or operate some 40 facilities, as well as power generation assets, in the U.S. and Canada.
Financial statements
Our unaudited interim consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes (or, the “Consolidated Financial Statements”) have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (or, the “SEC”) for interim reporting. Under those rules, certain footnotes and other financial information that are normally required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (or, “GAAP”) may be condensed or omitted. In our opinion, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for the fair statement of the Consolidated Financial Statements have been made. All amounts are expressed in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise indicated. The results for the interim period ended September 30, 2022, are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. These Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, filed with the SEC on March 1, 2022. Certain prior period amounts in the notes to our Consolidated Financial Statements have been reclassified to conform to the 2022 presentation.
New accounting pronouncement adopted in 2022
ASU 2021-08 “Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers”
Effective January 1, 2022, we adopted ASU 2021-08, “Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers,” issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board in 2021, which revises the accounting for acquired revenue contracts with customers in a business combination. The adoption of this accounting guidance, which was applied prospectively, did not impact our Consolidated Financial Statements and disclosures.
Note 2. Business Combinations
Potential acquisition by Paper Excellence
On July 5, 2022, Resolute and Paper Excellence Group, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Domtar Corporation (or, “Domtar”), entered into a business combination agreement (or, the “Transaction”) under which Domtar will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Resolute for $20.50 per share, in cash, without interest, and one contractual contingent value right per share (or, the “CVR”).
Under the CVR, stockholders will receive any refunds on approximately $500 million of deposits on softwood lumber duties paid by Resolute through June 30, 2022, including any interest thereon, net of certain expenses and of applicable taxes. Any proceeds attributable to the CVR will be distributed proportionally to the CVR holders, and the value will ultimately be determined by the terms and timing of the resolution of the softwood lumber dispute between Canada and the United States. The terms and timing of such resolution is uncertain.
On October 31, 2022, Resolute's stockholders approved the Transaction. The Transaction, which is subject to applicable regulatory approvals and the satisfaction of certain other customary closing conditions, is expected to close in the first half of 2023. See Note 16, “Subsequent Events.”
Acquisition of Larouche and St-Prime
On March 4, 2022 (or, the “Acquisition Date”), we acquired control of Resolute-LP Engineered Wood Larouche Inc. and Resolute-LP Engineered Wood St-Prime Limited Partnership (or, “Larouche and St-Prime”), that were previously held as 50% owned joint ventures, by acquiring the remaining 50% equity interests from Louisiana-Pacific Canada Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Louisiana-Pacific Corporation, for a cash consideration of $51 million (including $1 million of working capital adjustment, and net of cash acquired of $8 million). Larouche and St-Prime, which are engineered wood product facilities

located in Quebec, produce I-joists for the construction industry. This acquisition solidifies our presence in the engineered wood product segment.
We accounted for our previously held equity investments in Larouche and St-Prime using the equity method of accounting since we had joint control prior to acquiring a controlling interest on the Acquisition Date.
We accounted for the acquisition of Larouche and St-Prime as a business combination in accordance with the acquisition method of accounting, which requires us to record the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed at fair value. The amount by which the purchase price exceeds the fair value of the net assets acquired is recorded as goodwill.
The following table summarizes our preliminary allocation of the purchase price to the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the Acquisition Date:
(Unaudited, in millions)
Cash and cash equivalents$16 
Accounts receivable10 
Inventories16 
Current assets acquired$42 
Fixed assets$28 
Goodwill (1)
54 
Total assets acquired and goodwill$124 
Accounts payable and other$3 
Current liabilities assumed3 
Pension and other postretirement benefit obligations1 
Deferred income tax liabilities2 
Total liabilities assumed$6 
Net assets acquired$118 
Cash consideration transferred59 
Fair value of the previously held interests in Larouche and St-Prime59 
Total fair value of consideration$118 
(1)The goodwill represents the future economic benefit arising from other assets acquired that could not be individually identified and separately recognized and is mostly attributable to securing downstream integration and the Larouche and St-Prime assembled workforce. Goodwill has been assigned to the wood products segment, and is included in such segment for goodwill impairment testing purposes. The total amount of goodwill is not deductible for tax purposes.
The allocation of the purchase price to assets acquired and liabilities assumed was based upon a preliminary valuation for all items and may be subject to adjustment during the 12-month measurement period following the Acquisition Date since we are finalizing the assumptions in regards to the fair values of these assets and liabilities.
The allocation of the purchase price was based on management’s estimate of the fair values of the acquired identifiable assets and assumed liabilities using valuation techniques including income, cost and market approaches. We utilized both the cost and market approaches to value fixed assets (Level 3).
At the Acquisition Date, our previously-held equity investments of $17 million were remeasured at a fair value of $59 million, which resulted in a gain of $42 million. The gain was recorded in “Other income (expense), net” in our Consolidated Statements of Operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.
We applied an income approach, specifically the discounted cash flow (or, the “DCF”) method, to measure the fair value of our equity interest in Larouche and St-Prime, as of immediately prior to the business acquisition. Determining fair value requires the exercise of significant judgments, including the amount and timing of expected future cash flows, discount rate and tax rate. The cash flows employed in the DCF analysis are based on our best estimate of future sales, earnings and cash flows after considering factors such as general market conditions, existing firm orders, long-term business plans and recent operating performance. The discount rate utilized in the DCF analysis is based on the respective company’s weighted average cost of

capital, which takes into account the relative weights of each component of capital structure (equity and debt) and represents the expected cost of new capital, adjusted as appropriate to consider the risk inherent in future cash flows of the Company.
We ceased applying the equity method for our investments in Larouche and St-Prime and the net assets acquired and results of operations are consolidated from the Acquisition Date and are included in the wood products segment.
From the Acquisition Date to September 30, 2022, our consolidated financial results included sales of $127 million and net income of $36 million attributable to Larouche and St-Prime.
The following unaudited pro forma information for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, represents our results of operations as if the acquisition of Larouche and St-Prime had occurred on January 1, 2021. This pro forma information does not purport to be indicative of the results that would have occurred for the periods presented or that may be expected in the future.

Acquisition of a power generation facility
On April 1, 2022, we acquired a 34.5 megawatt power generation facility in Senneterre (Quebec) for $8 million, including a contingent consideration. With this acquisition, we will maximize the use of biomass from our regional operations.
Note 3. Closure Costs, Impairment and Other Related Charges
In December 2021, the Company announced the indefinite idling of pulp and paper operations at our Calhoun (Tennessee) mill. We have revised our expected 2022 additional cash closure costs, disclosed in our December 31, 2021 Consolidated Financial Statements, from $32 million to $12 million, due to lower than expected chemical disposal costs. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we recognized nil and $7 million, respectively, of these costs.
In March 2021, the Company announced the indefinite idling of the Amos and Baie-Comeau (Quebec) paper mills. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we recognized additional other costs of nil and $4 million, respectively, for the Baie-Comeau paper mill.
Note 4. Other Income (Expense), Net
Other income (expense), net for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, was comprised of the following:
