Item 2.06.

Material Impairments

 

On October 18, 2007, Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (“LP”), on behalf of its Canadian operation, Louisiana-Pacific Canada, Ltd., announced it will permanently shut down operations at its St-Michel-des-Saints, Quebec, oriented strand board (OSB) mill. Production at the mill has been curtailed since August, 2006. A number of factors combined to put the mill in a poor competitive position for the foreseeable future, including the continued depressed housing market, oversupply in the OSB market, a strengthening Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar and increasing wood cost in this area. The closure of the mill and the probable cancellation of a related forest license will require a non-cash charge against LP’s third-quarter 2007 earnings of approximately $47 million. This charge includes $24 million related to timber rights, $2 million related to roads, and $21 million to reduce the value of land, building and equipment associated with the mill to its net realizable value. LP also expects to record an additional $2 to $4 million in severance and other related costs in the fourth quarter of 2007 associated with this closure.

 

Separately, as part of the review of its quarterly financial statements, LP recorded in the third quarter additional impairments of its decking operations of $7.5 million and $1.5 million associated with the closure of an LVL facility in Eastern Oregon, to reduce its book value to its estimated sale price.
