Fletcher Challenge Forests announced today that Jaakko Poyry had finalised its independent valuation of the Tahorakuri forest estate (Tahorakuri) at US$63.8million.

Mr Terry McFadgen the Chief Executive Officer of Fletcher Challenge Forests said, “The finalisation of the Jaako Poyry report now confirms the agreed sale price to Rubicon. No adjustment will be required to the previously announced sale price of US$64 million.
