Lenzing-Biocel Acquisition Approved

May 7, 2010

Deal will add pulp to Lenzing's scope.

The anti-trust authorities have approved Lenzing's acquisition of Czech pulp producer Biocel Paskov A.S. The acquisition is an important step towards the Lenzing's long-term extension of its vertical backwards integration and a part of a hedging strategy to protect Lenzing from the impact of high pulp price volatility. Pulp is the raw material used for the production of Lenzing viscose.

Lenzing intends to invest €50 million in the site's capacity expansion over the next three years and to remodel Biocel Paskov into a swing capacity pulp factory. This will provide Lenzing with the ability to flexibly adjust to any given pulp market situation and to either produce dissolving pulp for its own fiber production or paper pulp for external customers.
