Commenting on the second quarter results, John D. Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "While paper productivity improved from the first quarter, we took fifty-one thousand tons of lack of order downtime, which resulted in higher unit costs. Our pulp business benefited from good price momentum and we shipped over ten thousand tonnes from inventory. However, these benefits were more than offset by seasonally higher maintenance activity in our pulp mills."
 
Mr. Williams added, "In our Personal Care segment, results during the quarter were negatively impacted by higher raw material costs. Nevertheless, the integration of Indas is progressing well and it is performing in line with our expectations. In addition, our capacity expansion plan continues to ramp up and we are currently in the process of launching new products for strategic customers."
 
Quarterly Review
Operating income before items1 was $79 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to an operating income before items1 of $83 million in the first quarter of 2014. Depreciation and amortization totaled $96 million in the second quarter of 2014.
