The offer values Canfor at about $2 billion.

Great Pacific says the proposed transaction will allow for the elimination of the significant costs related to maintaining a public company listing and allow for reinvestment of that money in the company’s operations.

Canfor says it has formed a special committee of independent directors to review the offer and consider its strategic alternatives.
