Analysis:

Clearwater’s pulp and paperboard division delivered a strong quarter for the company, but tissue sales suffered from a highly competitive market and costs associated with higher energy and transportation costs due to the cold weather in the Midwest and Northeastern United States, said President and CEO Linda Massman. The quarterly earnings reflected $7.7 million in one-time costs, primarily associated with the closure of facilities in Thomaston, Ga., and Long Island, N.Y.
