Richmond-based Paper Excellence is a step closer to acquiring Catalyst Paper.

The company, controlled by Asian investors, has cleared the Canada’s Competition Bureau, which issued a “no-action” letter in response to the proposed acquisition.

“This acquisition demonstrates Paper Excellence’s continuing deep commitment to the province of British Columbia,” said chief executive Brian Baarda.
