Clearwater Paper Corp. (CLW) has reached an accelerated stock buyback agreement or "ASB agreement" with Goldman, Sachs & Co. to buy back an aggregate of $50 million of Clearwater Paper stock. As part of its $100 million stock repurchase program, the company would buy the common shares as per the ASB agreement.

This program, announced on January 17, 2013, in conjunction with the sale of $275 million of 4.5% senior notes by the company, is targeted to be over in 2013. The remainder of the repurchases under this program may be made, at management's discretion, in both public market and private transactions, are subject to certain limitations, and may include the use of derivative contracts or additional structured share repurchase deals.

Pursuant to the ASB agreement, the company would pay $50 million to Goldman, Sachs & Co. and would receive a majority of the shares underlying the ASB agreement, from Goldman, Sachs & Co. on March 6, 2013. The remaining shares to be bought back under the ASB agreement, if any, would be generally based on the daily volume-weighted average price of Clearwater Paper stock during the term of the ASB agreement.
