PRICE DATA

The Commission requested U.S. producers and importers4 of CFS paper to provide quarterly data for the total quantity and f.o.b.5 value of selected products that were shipped to merchants and directly to end users in the U.S. market.6 Data were requested for the period January 2003-September 2006. The products for which pricing data were requested are as follows:

Product 1.Coated free sheet, two-side coated sheets, text weight, 70-100 pounds basis weights, brightness levels 87 and above.

Product 2.Coated free sheet, two-side coated rolls, text weight, 70-100 pounds basis weights, brightness levels 87 and above.

Product 3.Coated free sheet, one-side coated sheets, text weight, 70-100 pounds basis weights, brightness levels 83 and above.

The Commission received usable pricing data for sales of the requested products from eight U.S. p r o d u c e r s ( * * * ) 7 , n i n e i m p o r t e r s o f C F S p a p e r f r o m C h i n a ( * * * ) 8 , t h r e e i m p o r t e r s o f p r o d u c t f r o m I n d o n e s i a ( * * * ) 9 , a n d e i g h t i m p o r t e r s o f p r o d u c t f r o m K o r e a ( * * * ) 1 0 , a l t h o u g h n o t a l l f i r m s r e p o r t pricing for all products for all quarters. Merchant sales and direct sales pricing data reported by these firms accounted for *** percent of U.S. producers’ U.S. shipments of CFS paper during January 2003- e d

4 Some firms that submitted pricing data on the importers’ questionnaires are not the importer of record; therefore, their reported sales are not at the same level of trade and their sales prices are excluded here and rather presented in app. F. These other firms include: ***. If their sales prices had been included, they would have had a minimal impact on the pricing trends presented here. The underselling analysis for merchant sales prices would have also remained virtually the same, with only the average margins changing slightly. For direct pricing, there are more quarterly pricing comparisons, and there are more instances of overselling relative to underselling. The Commission also requested sales data from importers that import from nonsubject sources. The Commission received pricing data on sales of product imported from ***. These data are presented in app. G.

5 The Commission also requested quarterly data for delivered sales values. These data are presented in app. H. Delivered sales prices followed relatively the same trends as the f.o.b. sales prices, but the delivered merchant sales show slightly more underselling relative to overselling than the data presented here, whereas the delivered direct sales show slightly more overselling relative to underselling than the data presented here.

6

Petitioner states that the merchant sales prices carry more weight, as they account for *** percent of domestic

producers’ shipments and *** percent of subject import shipments.

7 U.S. producer *** only provided pricing data on a delivered basis and is therefore not represented here. Its data are included in app. H.

8 Importer *** only provided pricing data on a delivered basis and is therefore not represented here. Its data are included in app. H.

9 Importers *** and *** only provided pricing data on a delivered basis and are therefore not represented here. Importer *** could not identify whether its sales values were on an f.o.b. basis or on a delivered basis and is therefore not represented here. Its data are included in app. H.

10 Importers *** and *** only provided pricing data on a delivered basis and are therefore not represented here. Pricing data as reported by *** were excluded here as it reported values on a delivered basis. *** could not identify whether its sales values were on an f.o.b. basis or a delivered basis. Its data accounted for a relatively small share of the total data on imports from Korea. Pricing data as reported by these excluded firms are presented in app. H.
