The transaction includes Wausau Paper's manufacturing facilities in Mosinee and Rhinelander, Wisconsin, and resulted in net cash proceeds to Wausau, subject to certain post-closing adjustments, of approximately $105 million after settlement of transaction-related liabilities, transaction costs and taxes.
