Mohawk to Sell Strathmore Artist Papers to Pacon Corporation

Monday, September 25, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

COHOES, N.Y., Sept. 22 -- Mohawk Fine Papers Inc. today announced it has signed an agreement to sell its Strathmore Artist Papers business to Wisconsin-based Pacon Corporation. The Artist Papers business includes fine art papers, textured and decorative sheets, greeting card papers, and digital photo and inkjet papers marketed under the Strathmore Artis brand. Under the terms of the agreement Pacon will acquire the business assets, equipment and inventory, and an exclusive license to use the trade names involved with the Artist Papers business. The sale does not include the Strathmore brand or Strathmore's comprehensive portfolio of premium writing, text and cover papers for marketing communications and corporate identity. Mohawk acquired the Strathmore Artist Papers brands in May 2005, as part of its acquisition of the brands associated with International Paper's Fine Papers Division. "Strathmore Artist Papers has a 114 year tradition of exceptional quality and service and we are pleased to see Pacon's commitment to continue this record," said Tom O'Connor, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "This sale will allow Mohawk to focus on our core business of premium printing papers, where we have a national leadership position." This transaction is expected to close by the end of October and will be subject to customary closing conditions. Mohawk is a privately held, New York-based manufacturer of premium printing and writing papers. Its papers are optimized for sheetfed, web and digital printing and are used in a variety of corporate and marketing communications.
