Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On March 1, 2021, Domtar Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an accelerated share repurchase agreement (the “ASR Agreement”) with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. to repurchase $200 million of its common stock with available cash on hand.

Under the ASR Agreement, the Company will pay $200 million in exchange for an initial delivery of 4,430,906 shares. The final number of shares to be repurchased by the Company will be based on the average of the daily volume-weighted average stock prices of the Company’s common stock during the valuation period of the ASR Agreement, less a discount and subject to adjustments. The resulting adjustments may affect the total amount expended by the Company or the aggregate number of shares it repurchases.
