Distribution solutions businesses Unisource Worldwide, Inc. (“Unisource”) and xpedx will merge under the terms of a definitive agreement that would 
result in the creation of a new publicly traded company. The agreement to merge the two businesses was signed by International Paper (NYSE:IP), 
parent company of xpedx, and by UWW Holdings, Inc. the holding company of Unisource and owned indirectly by an affiliate of Bain Capital and by 
Georgia-Pacific, as well as certain of their affiliates.

Upon the expected completion of the merger in mid-2014, which is subject to certain closing conditions, the new company will have projected annual 
revenue in the range of $9 billion to $10 billion and will have about 9,500 team members across more than 170 distribution centers in North America. 
The new company is expected to generate approximately $200 million in synergies.

Allan Dragone, chief executive officer of Unisource, said, “This merger will create a new company with  unique capabilities that will enable better service 
to customers across their core business segments of packaging, print and facility solutions. Building upon the strengths of both Unisource and xpedx, we 
believe the new company will be able to accelerate and enhance top-line growth opportunities across a complementary portfolio.”

Seth Meisel, a member of the Unisource board of directors and a managing director at Bain Capital, stated, “By bringing together these two businesses, we 
will be able to provide customers with innovative solutions and ideas to solve their toughest challenges in product packaging and fulfillment, paper and 
print management, supply chain and logistics services, and facility solutions. The new company will offer an unmatched combination of reach, product 
depth and service capabilities.”
