International Paper will divest three containerboard mills in California and Tennessee as part of an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) over the acquisition of Temple-Inland. The three mills have a combined containerboard production capacity of 970,000 tons. The agreement calls for the sale of the mills within four months, with the possibility of two 30-day extensions.
