In the VSF business, we enjoy global leadership. To sustain ongoing growth, we have an integrated business model, spanning the entire value chain from plantation to pulp to fibre. The Terrace Bay Mill, upon conversion, will be geared to provide superior quality pulp for our VSF plants worldwide”.
The Terrace Bay Mill was placed under CCAA (Companies Creditors Arrangement Act) in January, 2012. The Aditya Birla Group is to make this acquisition through a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), AV Terrace Bay Inc. (Canada). Grasim Industries Ltd., proposes to hold a 40% stake in AV Terrace Bay Inc. and the remaining 60% is proposed to be held by Thai Rayon Public Co. Ltd., Thailand. Over a period of the next 3 years, Grasim would be contributing $ 44 million, out of the total equity contribution of $ 110 million.
The Group will be investing more than $ 250 million in a phased manner to convert the mill to produce Dissolving grade pulp with a capacity of 2,80,000 tpa. Until the conversion, which is likely to happen in FY 16, the mill will produce and sell Paper grade pulp. The Paper Grade Pulp mill should restart by October 2012. The Terrace Bay Mill is considered an anchor mill due to its location and its significant consumption of residual chips produced by the regional sawmills.
The transaction is subject to Court approvals in Canada and other Regulatory approvals in Canada, Thailand and India. It is expected to close by July 31, 2012.
The Aditya Birla Group has a significant presence in Canada.

The Aditya Birla Group has a 6000 strong workforce operating in the country. The Group enjoys a strong relationship with the Government and with the Community at large.
