Coated Groundwood Slide

Demand has been very soft thus far in 2014 due to weak advertising and magazine circulation as well as reduced Catalog circulation due to Postal increases. Prices have declined to numbers not seen in the past couple of years. A lack of imported paper has not offset the reduction in Demand. Everyone seems to be waiting for a NewPage-Verso merger to take care of the over-supply situation which would mean the Demand/Capacity equation won’t improve until next year.
