Clearwater Paper's 2-for-1 stock split will be effected by a 100% stock dividend. Each Clearwater Paper stockholder will receive one additional share of stock for each share they owned as of the Record Date (August 12, 2011). For example: as of the Record Date if an investor owns 100 shares of Clearwater Paper stock and the market price is $75 per share, that investor's total investment in Clearwater Paper stock is worth $7,500. After the split the investor will have 200 shares of Clearwater Paper stock, but the market price will be approximately $37.50 per share. The value of the investor's total investment in Clearwater Paper remains the same at $7,500 until the stock price moves up or down.
This stock split will not change the proportionate interest a stockholder maintains in Clearwater Paper.
Individual stockholders should consult with their own tax adviser regarding their own specific tax circumstances. From a U.S. Federal tax standpoint, this is not a taxable event.
Your tax basis or cost will be equally divided among the new shares. For example, if prior to the 2-for-1 stock split an investor had purchased 100 shares of Clearwater Paper stock at $50 per share, following the distribution of the stock dividend, that investor's holdings would become 200 shares with a basis of $25 per share.
For the stock dividend, the Ex-Dividend Date--the day the stock begins trading at the split price--is August 29, 2011.
There are several key dates.

The Record Date – August 12, 2011 – determines which stockholders are entitled to receive additional shares due to the split.

The Payable (distribution) Date – August 26, 2011 – is the date when the stock dividend is payable.

The Ex-Date or Ex-Split Date – August 29, 2011 – is the date Clearwater Paper common stock will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange at the new split-adjusted price.
Our stock transfer agent, Computershare, will mail written statements to registered stockholders indicating their split-adjusted shares. If your stock is currently held in a brokerage account, the information will be sent directly to your broker.
