MONTREAL, QC and NORWALK, CT, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Domtar Corporation
(NYSE:UFS) (TSX:UFS), one of the  largest manufacturers and distributors  of 
paper in North  America, has  signed, through its  operating subsidiaries,  an 
agreement to  acquire  Xerox's  (NYSE:XRX) paper  and  print  media  products 
business in the United States and Canada.

"The Xerox brand is well regarded in  the paper markets it serves," said  John 
D. Williams, Domtar's President and Chief Executive Officer. "This deal brings
together Xerox's  branded papers  with  Domtar's already  comprehensive  paper 
offering and will allow us to better serve our customers."

While Xerox  does not  manufacture  paper, the  company has  long  distributed 
through its  brand  name a  broad  range of  coated  and uncoated  papers  and 
specialty print  media including  business  forms as  well as  carbonless  and 
wide-format paper. This  business will now  become part of  Domtar's pulp  and 
paper segment, and Domtar will  market and distribute Xerox-branded paper  and 
print media.

"As Xerox  broadens its  business to  focus more  on services  and  innovative 
document technology, we saw an opportunity  for our paper business clients  to 
be better served by a leader in the industry," said Frank Edmonds, senior vice
president, Xerox  Global  Paper  and Supplies  Distribution  Group.  "It's  an 
across-the-board win. Xerox benefits through a trademark licensing  agreement 
with Domtar;  Domtar adds  a well-regarded  brand to  its portfolio;  and  our 
respective clients get  a simplified, 'one-stop'  experience through  Domtar's 
extensive offerings and distribution network."

Xerox will  continue to  manufacture,  sell and  support  its broad  range  of 
consumables, such as toner and ink, and Xerox Replacement Cartridges.

The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2013, subject to
customary closing conditions. Until the close, Xerox customers may continue to
order paper  and media  through Xerox  Supplies sales  representatives,  Xerox 
inside sales centers, or online at
