About Eucalyptus Fibre Congo

EFC is an established renewable forestry operation previously owned and operated by a division of Shell Oil International (Shell Renewables). The operations of EFC are based on the planting and harvesting of fast-growing clones of eucalyptus trees which reach 22 to 26 meters (70 to 85 feet) in seven years at which point they are harvested and the area replanted. EFC currently holds an exclusive 70 year concession agreement with the Government of The Republic of Congo. The plantation concession covers 68,000 hectares of which 42,000 hectares are planted.

EFC shipped about 200,000 tonnes of round logs to European customers in 2007 for proceeds of some US$19 million. EFC will continue to ship logs through the first quarter of 2008 after which the bulk of sales will be in wood-chips. Forestry operations continue to be streamlined through the acquisition of new equipment, training programs and competitive contract harvesting practices. EFC is now the largest private employer in the Republic of Congo.

The worldwide market for eucalyptus chips is currently strong. MagForestry's total revenue in 2008 will be predominantly based on wood-chips and are projected to be in excess of US$50 million.

EFC is currently expanding its tree nursery to not only support the re-planting of all harvested areas but also the planting of 22,000 hectares of additional lands. The EFC operations represent one of the World's largest renewable-sustainable forestry operations that lies within a 35km radius of a deep-water port (Pointe-Noire). Once the operations reach full production capacity in about 7 years, wood-chip production could reach 1.5 million tonnes annually.
