Strategy The company’s strategy is to create shareholder value by focusing on the expansion of its asset and earnings base through organic growth and acquisitions, primarily in Europe and North America. Its strategy includes the following: focus on premium grade NBSK market pulp and increasing stable revenues from renewable energy and chemical sales. Seasonality The company is exposed to fluctuations in quarterly sales volumes and expenses due to seasonal factors. The company generally has weaker pulp demand in Europe during the summer holiday months and in China in the period relating to its lunar new year. The company has a seasonal build-up in raw material inventories in the early winter months as its mills build up their fiber supply for the winter when there is reduced availability.
