NASHVILLE, Tennessee , February 27, 2012 (press release) – Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (LP) (NYSE: LPX) reported today that it has adjusted its 2011 results to reflect a non-cash impairment charge related to its investment in its U.S. Greenfiber joint venture due to information received after the release of earnings.
