Weyerhaeuser's common shares outstanding increased during the second and third quarters of 2013 following the issuance of approximately 33 million common shares in conjunction with the acquisition of Longview Timber LLC.



(2)

Earnings for the fourth quarter of 2013 included after-tax charges of $114 million, or $0.20 per share, for special items. These charges were primarily related to a real estate impairment that was partially offset by unrelated tax adjustments.



(3)

Net change in cash and equivalents for the fourth quarter of 2013 includes repayment of indebtedness assumed in the acquisition of Longview Timber LLC. Change in cash and equivalents for the first quarter of 2013 includes $156 million for debt repayment.

During the fourth quarter of 2013, Weyerhaeuser decided to eliminate post-Medicare health funding for certain salaried retirees after 2014. As a result, the company will ratably amortize a total pre-tax gain of $177 million throughout 2014. Special items for the first quarter include a pre-tax gain of $45 million from this plan amendment, a $22 million pre-tax gain on the sale of a landfill located in Washington State and pre-tax restructuring charges of $18 million relating to the SG&A cost reduction initiative announced during the fourth quarter of 2013. These are reported as part of Unallocated Items.

1Q 2014 Performance - Average selling prices for Western logs improved across export and domestic markets. Western fee harvest volumes increased to capitalize on robust export markets, and unit logging costs fell due to higher volume and improved efficiencies. In the South, silviculture costs declined seasonally and average log price realizations improved slightly. These improvements were partially offset by lower Southern fee harvest volumes due to wet weather. First quarter included earnings of $4 million from dispositions of non-strategic timberlands, a decrease of $16 million compared with the fourth quarter.

2Q 2014 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser anticipates comparable earnings from the Timberlands segment in the second quarter. In the West, the company expects increased Chinese export log sales volumes to be more than offset by lower average prices for domestic and export logs and seasonally higher unit logging and transportation expenses. In the South, Weyerhaeuser anticipates seasonally higher silviculture costs, largely offset by increased fee harvest volumes and slightly higher average log price realizations. Second quarter earnings will include approximately $20 million from dispositions of non-strategic timberlands substantially completed in April 2014.

1Q 2014 Performance - Earnings increased compared with the fourth quarter despite the effect of severe winter weather. Higher average lumber realizations were partially offset by lower realizations for oriented strand board and lower engineered wood products realizations due to mix. Sales volumes declined due to severe weather and transportation challenges related to Canadian rail car and trucking availability. Per unit manufacturing costs for lumber improved in the quarter. Western log costs increased.

Fourth quarter included special charges of approximately $10 million for the permanent closure of previously curtailed operations.

2Q 2014 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser expects significantly higher earnings from the Wood Products segment in the second quarter. The company anticipates seasonally higher sales volumes across all product lines and slightly higher average selling prices for oriented strand board and engineered wood products. Lumber sales realizations have softened thus far in the second quarter but should stabilize as demand improves. The company expects increased production across all product lines and continued improvements in manufacturing efficiency.

1Q 2014 Performance - Average pulp price realizations improved compared with the fourth quarter, and the mill system maintained strong operating performance despite harsh winter weather. These factors were offset by higher energy costs and lower pulp sales volumes due to timing of shipments and Canadian transportation challenges similar to those experienced in the Wood Products segment. Maintenance costs increased due to a greater number of scheduled annual outage days.

2Q 2014 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser expects significantly higher earnings from the Cellulose Fibers segment in the second quarter. The company anticipates higher sales price realizations and volumes for pulp and liquid packaging board, lower energy costs, and slightly lower maintenance expenses.

1Q 2014 Performance - Home closings decreased seasonally to 508 single-family homes and average margins on homes closed declined, primarily due to mix. These factors were partially offset by higher average closing prices and lower selling expenses due to the reduced closing volumes.

First quarter includes earnings of $2 million from land and lot sales, compared with earnings of $7 million in the fourth quarter. Fourth quarter included special charges of $349 million, primarily for the impairment of a large-master-planned community excluded from the expected combination of Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Company (WRECO) and TRI Pointe Homes.

2Q 2014 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser expects higher earnings from single-family homebuilding in the second quarter, and a moderate increase in earnings from land and lot sales. Single-family closing volumes should increase seasonally, and average closing prices should improve slightly. The company anticipates comparable average margins on homes closed and higher selling-related expenses due to the additional closing volumes.

*Adjusted EBITDA, excluding special items is a non-GAAP measure that management uses to evaluate the performance of the company. Adjusted EBITDA, as we define it, is operating income from continuing operations adjusted for depreciation, depletion, amortization, pension and postretirement costs not allocated to business segments (primarily interest cost, expected return on plan assets, amortization of actuarial loss and amortization of prior service cost/credit), special items and interest included in cost of products sold. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from and is not intended to represent an alternative to our GAAP results.
