Western Forest Products Announces Secondary Offering by Brookfield Special Situations

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- Western Forest Products Inc. (TSX:WEF) ("Western" or the "Company") and Brookfield Special Situations Management Limited ("Brookfield") today announced a bought deal secondary offering with a syndicate of underwriters (the "Underwriters"), through which the wholly-owned subsidiary of Brookfield Asset Management (TSX:BAM.A)(NYSE:BAM) has agreed to sell 62,500,000 non-voting shares (the "Offered Shares") of Western at an offering price of $1.20 per share (the "Offering"). The Underwriters have been granted an over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 9,375,000 non-voting shares from Brookfield at the offering price, under the same terms, exercisable for a period of 30 days from closing of the Offering.

Brookfield currently holds 338,945,860 non-voting shares of Western, representing 100% of the issued and outstanding non-voting shares. The non-voting shares are convertible into common shares on the basis of one common share for one non-voting share, on the terms and conditions set out in the Company's Articles. Each common share of the Company entitles the holder to one vote on any resolutions at meetings of shareholders. On satisfaction of all conditions to closing of the Offering, including compliance with the Company's Articles, all Offered Shares, including any non-voting shares acquired by the Underwriters under the over-allotment option, shall be converted, on a one-for-one basis, into common shares, representing approximately 33% of the issued and outstanding common shares on a non-diluted basis after giving effect to the Offering.

Following completion of the Offering, it is intended that 59,612,801 of the then remaining non-voting shares held by Brookfield shall be converted into common shares on a one-for-one basis, resulting in Brookfield holding 122,639,345 common shares, representing approximately 49% of the then issued and outstanding common shares of Western on a non-diluted basis. This will represent the same percentage of common shares that Brookfield held prior to the Offering.

The Offered Shares will be offered by way of a short form prospectus, to be filed by no later than November 19, 2012, in all of the provinces of Canada pursuant to National Instrument 44-101 Short Form Prospectus Distributions and in the United States pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or before December 4, 2012 and is subject to certain conditions, including the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange and the Canadian securities regulatory authorities.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, sale or solicitation would be unlawful. The common shares have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration.
