FiberMark withdraws reorganization plan

March 29, 2005

FiberMark, Inc has withdrawn its current Plan of Reorganization because its three largest bondholders, also members of the Creditors Committee, remain unable to resolve disputes among themselves relating to corporate governance and control issues involving the reorganized company. Despite the company's ongoing efforts to facilitate agreement on these normally routine Plan implementation matters, the bondholders again missed a Court deadline to take the actions necessary to permit confirmation of the Plan. Although the Plan submitted to creditors for approval in December was unanimously supported by the Creditors Committee, the three bondholder members of the Creditors Committee subsequently voted against the Plan due to intercreditor disagreements. Without the bondholders' resolution of these issues, their votes in favor of the Plan and the Creditors Committee approval of corporate governance and other implementation documents, the company cannot proceed with confirmation of its current Plan.

As a result of this withdrawal, in an effort to move the chapter 11 process forward, FiberMark today filed motions with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of Vermont, to expedite resolution of claims trading issues raised by certain bondholders and safeguard estate resources relative to the intercreditor dispute, as well as to reinstate the exclusivity period so that the company can formulate a new Plan of Reorganization that it believes could be confirmed.
