Interfor Announces Name Change, Simplified Share Structure and New Directors

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- INTERFOR CORPORATION ("Interfor" or the "Company") (TSX: IFP.A) announces that shareholders have approved proposals to change the Company's name to Interfor Corporation from International Forest Products Limited, and to simplify the Company's share structure. The Company effected these changes today.

The new name is a direct link to the Company's traditional trade name, and is consistent with the formal names of its US subsidiaries, which now account for more than 50 per cent of Interfor's total production.

The process to simplify the share structure, which began last August, involves eliminating the Company's Class B Common Shares, known as Multiple Voting Shares, and redesignating Class A Subordinate Voting Shares as Common Shares. Further information can be found in the Company's Notice of the Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders and Management Information Circular.

The changes were approved at the Company's AGM held on May 6th and have also been conditionally approved by the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). It is anticipated that the Company's trading symbol on the TSX will change to "IFP" and the CUSIP for its newly designated Common Shares will be updated over the coming days.

Interfor also announces the voting results in respect of the election of all director nominees at its AGM as follows:
