REVENUE DRIVERS DOMTAR 2016 ANNUAL REPORT 3 PULP AND PAPER SEGMENT SPECIALTY AND PACKAGING PAPERS SPECIALTY AND PACKAGING PAPERS OVERVIEW We are an important supplier of specialty papers manufactured in North America. Our products include a wide array of specifically engineered and customized paper products for converter customers that must also meet the needs of their customers—and ultimately, end users. We specialize in food packaging, medical disposables and thermal papers. Food packaging includes everything from hamburger wrappers and foil pouches to sugar packets, popcorn bags, butter wrap, baking cups and pan liners. Medical applications include bandage wraps, sterilizable pouches, surgical gowns and medical wipes. Our thermal papers are used for cash register receipts and ATM print outs, as well as lottery and entertainment tickets. PRIORITIES Specialty papers is an attractive market that is growing in step with the economy. Existing paper producers looking for growing markets are drawn to its potential while nonpaper substitutes are available in some sub-segments, resulting in a competitive market. We succeed through innovation and by placing the highest priority on service and flexibility to meet customer needs, supported by highly experienced technical resources. Last year, we began supplying a broad range of unbleached food packaging papers to further diversify our offering in a segment that is growing at a higher rate largely due to end-user demand for natural products. In 2017, we will maintain a strong innovation pipeline and bring new products to market while maximizing the flexibility of our assets to be the partner of choice for our customers. Domtar is one of several manufacturers of the colorful, lightweight paper used to produce sugar packets. Our Espanola, Port Huron and Nekoosa mills meet FDA compliance requirements for direct food contact.
