Item 2.06. Material Impairments
Weyerhaeuser Company (the Company or Weyerhaeuser) has completed
the previously announced strategic review of its Uruguayan
timberlands and manufacturing business. On June 2, 2017, the
Weyerhaeuser Board of Directors approved an agreement to sell all
of the Companys equity in the Uruguayan business, resulting in
the related assets meeting the criteria under generally accepted
accounting principles to be classified as held for sale. As a
result, the Company determined on June 2, 2017 that it will be
required to record the related assets at fair value, less an
amount of estimated sale costs, and thus recognize a non-cash
pre-tax impairment charge during the second quarter of 2017. The
Companys current estimate of the impairment charge is
approximately $150 million. A description of the transaction is
set forth below in Item 8.01.

Section 8 – Other Events
Item 8.01 Other Events
On June 2, 2017, Weyerhaeuser entered into an equity purchase
agreement with a consortium led by BTG Pactuals Timberland
Investment Group (TIG), including other long-term institutional
investors, to which the Company has agreed to sell, in exchange
for $402.5 million in cash, all of its equity interest in
subsidiaries that collectively own and operate its Uruguayan
timberlands and manufacturing business. The business is comprised
principally of 300,000 acres of eucalyptus and pine timberlands
in northeastern and north central Uruguay, a plywood and veneer
manufacturing facility, a cogeneration facility, a seedling
nursery and related assets. The transaction is subject to
customary purchase price adjustments, including adjustments
relating to target working capital, harvest limitations and
inventory amounts, as well as standard operating covenants,
casualty loss provisions, indemnities and closing conditions,
including regulatory review. The sale is expected to close in the
fourth quarter of 2017.
