RAYONIER INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
(Dollar amounts in thousands unless otherwise stated)


1.
BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Basis of Presentation
The unaudited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto of Rayonier Inc. and its subsidiaries (“Rayonier” or the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). In the opinion of management, these financial statements and notes reflect all adjustments (all of which are normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations, financial position and cash flows for the periods presented. These statements and notes should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and supplementary data included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, as filed with the SEC.
Reclassifications
Certain 2013 amounts and amounts previously reported in 2014 have been reclassified to agree with the current presentation, including reclassifications for discontinued operations. Rayonier completed the spin-off of its Performance Fibers business on June 27, 2014 and completed the sale of its Wood Products business on March 1, 2013. Accordingly, the operating results of these businesses are reported as discontinued operations in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income for all periods presented. Certain administrative and general costs historically allocated to the segments, which remained with Rayonier, are reported in continuing operations.
The December 31, 2013 Consolidated Balance Sheet reports historical information and includes balances for all businesses as reported in the prior year. The June 30, 2014 Consolidated Balance Sheet reports continuing operations only and reflects the contribution of $1.2 billion of assets, net, and corresponding liabilities and equity to Rayonier Advanced Materials in connection with the spin-off of the Performance Fibers business.
The Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for both 2014 and 2013 have not been restated to exclude Performance Fibers or Wood Products cash flows. Cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2014 also reflect transactions related to the Performance Fibers spin-off, including borrowings to arrange the capital structure prior to the separation, proceeds received upon the spin-off and the use of proceeds to pay down debt and reserve cash for a special dividend payment during the third quarter of 2014.
See Note 2Discontinued Operations for additional information regarding the spin-off of the Performance Fibers business and sale of the Wood Products business.
New Accounting Standards
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) and International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”) jointly issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, a comprehensive new revenue recognition standard which will supersede current revenue recognition guidance. The core principle is that an entity will recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers at an amount that the entity expects to be entitled to receive in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance provides a unified model to determine when and how revenue is recognized and will require enhanced disclosures regarding the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from an entity’s contracts with customers. This standard will be effective for Rayonier beginning January 1, 2017 and can be applied either retrospectively to each period presented or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this new guidance on the consolidated financial statements.
In April 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-08, Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity. The standard requires a disposal of a component of an entity to be reported in discontinued operations if it represents a strategic shift with a major effect on an entity’s operations and financial results. It also removes requirements related to the evaluation of the component’s effect on ongoing operations and the entity’s continuing involvement with the component. Additional disclosures about discontinued operations are also required under this standard. ASU No. 2014-08 is required to be applied prospectively for all disposals (or classifications as held for sale) of components of an entity that occur within annual periods beginning December 15, 2014. As the Company has not elected early adoption, this standard will be effective for Rayonier’s first quarter 2015 Form 10-Q filing. It is not expected that the standard will have any impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Subsequent Events
The Company evaluated events and transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date but before financial statements were issued, and three subsequent events were identified that warranted disclosure. On July 21, 2014, the Board of Directors approved a third quarter cash dividend of 30 cents per common share. The dividend is payable on September 30, 2014 to shareholders of record on September 16, 2014. In addition to the regular third quarter cash dividend, the Board of Directors approved a special cash dividend of 50 cents per common share payable on August 15, 2014 to shareholders of record on July 31, 2014. Additionally, amendments to the Company’s revolving credit facility and term credit agreement became effective in July 2014, as discussed in Note 17Debt.

2.
DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS
Spin-Off of the Performance Fibers Business
On June 27, 2014, Rayonier completed its previously announced tax-free spin-off of its Performance Fibers business from its Forest Resources and Real Estate segments. The spin-off resulted in two independent, publicly-traded companies, with the Performance Fibers business being spun-off to Rayonier shareholders as a newly formed public company named Rayonier Advanced Materials. On June 27, 2014, the shareholders of record received one share of Rayonier Advanced Materials common stock for every three common shares of Rayonier held as of the close of business on the record date of June 18, 2014.
In connection with the spin-off, Rayonier Advanced Materials distributed $906.2 million in cash to Rayonier from $550 million in Senior Notes issued by Rayonier A.M. Products (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rayonier Advanced Materials), $325 million in term loans, and $75 million from a revolving credit facility Rayonier Advanced Materials entered into prior to the spin-off. Under the terms of the Internal Revenue Service spin-off ruling, $75 million of these funds is restricted to pay dividends or repurchase common stock within eighteen months following the distribution of the shares of Rayonier Advanced Materials common stock to Rayonier shareholders. At June 30, 2014, $75 million was included in the “Restricted cash” line in the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
In order to effect the spin-off and govern our relationship with Rayonier Advanced Materials after the spin-off, Rayonier entered into a Separation and Distribution Agreement, an Intellectual Property Agreement, a Tax Sharing Agreement, an Employee Matters Agreement and a Transition Services Agreement.
The Separation and Distribution Agreement governs the spin-off of the Performance Fibers business and the transfer of assets and other matters related to our relationship with Rayonier Advanced Materials. The Separation and Distribution Agreement provides for cross-indemnities between Rayonier and Rayonier Advanced Materials and established procedures for handling claims subject to indemnification and related matters.
The Intellectual Property Agreement governs the allocation of intellectual property rights and assets between Rayonier and Rayonier Advanced Materials.
The Tax Sharing Agreement governs the respective rights, responsibilities and obligations of Rayonier and Rayonier Advanced Materials with respect to taxes, tax attributes, tax returns, tax proceedings and certain other tax matters including assistance and cooperation on tax matters.

The Employee Matters Agreement governs the compensation and employee benefit obligations with respect to the current and former employees and non-employee directors of Rayonier and Rayonier Advanced Materials, and generally allocates liabilities and responsibilities relating to employee compensation, benefit plans and programs. The Employee Matters Agreement provides that employees of Rayonier Advanced Materials will no longer participate in benefit plans sponsored or maintained by Rayonier. In addition, the Employee Matters Agreement provides that each of the parties will be responsible for their respective current employees and compensation plans for such current employees. The Employee Matters Agreement further provides that Rayonier Advanced Materials will be responsible for liabilities associated with former employees whose last employment was with the businesses that are to be operated by Rayonier Advanced Materials after the spin-off, including the Performance Fibers business, as well as certain specified former corporate employees, and Rayonier will remain responsible for former employees whose last employment was with the businesses retained by Rayonier following the spin-off and certain specified corporate employees.

(Dollar amounts in thousands unless otherwise stated)

The Transition Services Agreement sets forth the terms on which Rayonier will provide to Rayonier Advanced Materials, and Rayonier Advanced Materials will provide to Rayonier, certain services or functions that were shared prior to the spin-off. Transition services include administrative, payroll, human resources, data processing, environmental health and safety, financial audit support, financial transaction support, and other support services, information technology systems and various other corporate services. The agreement provides for the provision of specified transition services, generally for a period of up to 18 months, on a cost basis.
Rayonier will not have significant continuing involvement in the operations of the Performance Fibers business going forward. Accordingly, the operating results of the Performance Fibers business, formerly reported as a separate operating segment, are classified as discontinued operations in the Company's Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income for all periods presented. Certain administrative and general costs historically allocated to the Performance Fibers segment, which will remain with the Company after the sale, are reported in continuing operations.
The following table summarizes the operating results of the Company's discontinued operations related to the Performance Fibers spin-off for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, as presented in "Income from discontinued operations, net" in the Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income:

In accordance with ASC 205-20-S99-3, Allocation of Interest to Discontinued Operations, the Company elected to allocate interest expense to discontinued operations where the debt is not directly attributed to the Performance Fibers business.  Interest expense has been allocated based on a ratio of net assets to be discontinued to the sum of consolidated net assets plus consolidated debt (other than debt directly attributable to the Forest Resources and Real Estate operations). The following table summarizes the interest expense allocated to discontinued operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013:

Sale of Wood Products Business
On March 1, 2013, Rayonier completed the sale of its Wood Products business (consisting of three lumber mills in Baxley, Swainsboro and Eatonton, Georgia) to International Forest Products Limited (“Interfor”) for $80 million plus a working capital adjustment. Accordingly, the operating results of the Wood Products business, formerly reported as a separate operating segment, are classified as discontinued operations in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income for the six months ended June 30, 2013.
Rayonier recognized an after-tax gain of $42.7 million on the sale. The gain is included in “Income from discontinued operations, net” on the Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income for the six months ended June 30, 2013.

(a) Rayonier will not issue additional shares upon future exchange or maturity of the Senior Exchangeable Notes due 2015 (the “2015 Notes”) due to offsetting hedges. Accounting Standards Codification 260, Earnings Per Share requires the assumed conversion of the 2015 Notes to be included in dilutive shares if the average stock price for the period exceeds the strike price, while the assumed conversion of the hedges is excluded since they are anti-dilutive. As such, the full dilutive effect of the 2015 Notes was included for all periods presented.

The Senior Exchangeable Notes due 2012 (the “2012 Notes”) matured in October 2012; however, no additional shares were issued due to offsetting exchangeable note hedges. The warrants sold in conjunction with the 2012 Notes began maturing on January 15, 2013 and matured ratably through March 27, 2013. As a result, 2,037,303 shares were issued through the end of the first quarter of 2013 and 97,918 shares were issued in the first week of April 2013. The dilutive impact of these warrants was calculated based on the length of time they were outstanding before settlement. Rayonier will distribute additional shares upon maturity of the warrants associated with the 2015 Notes if the stock price exceeds $28.58 per share. The exchange price on the warrants is lower than prior periods as it has been adjusted to reflect the spin-off of the Performance Fibers business. For further information, see Note 13 — Debt in the 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K and Note 17Debt of this Form 10-Q.
(b) The shares used for the assumed conversion of the warrants increased for the current quarter and year-to-date periods due to a lower adjusted exchange price as a result of the spin-off.

4.
INCOME TAXES
Rayonier is a real estate investment trust (“REIT”). In general, only its taxable REIT subsidiaries, whose businesses include the Company’s non-REIT qualifying activities, and foreign operations, are subject to corporate income taxes. Accordingly, the provision for corporate income taxes relates principally to current and deferred taxes on taxable REIT subsidiaries’ income and foreign operations.
Alternative Fuel Mixture Credit (“AFMC”) and Cellulosic Biofuel Producer Credit (“CBPC”)
The U.S. Internal Revenue Code allowed two credits for taxpayers that produced and used an alternative fuel in the operation of their business through December 31, 2009. The AFMC is a $.50 per gallon refundable tax credit (which is not taxable), while the CBPC is a $1.01 per gallon credit that is nonrefundable, taxable and has limitations based on an entity’s tax liability. Prior to the spin-off (See Note 2Discontinued Operations for additional information), Rayonier produced and used an alternative fuel (“black liquor”) at its Performance Fibers mills, which qualified for both credits. The Company claimed the AFMC on its original 2009 tax return. In the first quarter of 2013, management approved a $70 million tax payment to exchange approximately 120 million gallons of black liquor previously claimed for the AFMC for the CBPC, resulting in an expected net $19 million tax benefit, which was recorded in discontinued operations. As a result of the spin-off of the Performance Fibers business in second quarter 2014, the Company recorded a $16 million valuation allowance related to its limited potential use of the CBPC prior to its expiration on December 31, 2016.
Provision for Income Taxes from Continuing Operations
The Company’s effective tax rate before discrete items is below the 35 percent U.S. statutory rate due to tax benefits associated with being a REIT and tax benefits from losses at Rayonier's taxable operations from interest and general administrative expenses not allowed to be allocated to the discontinued operations of the Performance Fibers business. Despite the tax benefits associated with being a REIT and losses at Rayonier’s taxable operations, the increase in the effective tax rates as reported for the quarter and year-to-date periods is primarily attributable to the CBPC valuation allowance recorded in second quarter 2014.

Provision for Income Taxes from Discontinued Operations
In second quarter 2014, Rayonier completed the spin-off of its Performance Fibers business. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, income tax expense related to Performance Fibers discontinued operations was $6.0 million and $21.2 million, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, income tax expense related to Performance Fibers discontinued operations was $31.2 million and $41.6 million, respectively.
In first quarter 2013, Rayonier completed the sale of its Wood Products business for $80 million plus a working capital adjustment. For the six months ended June 30, 2013, income tax expense related to Wood Products discontinued operations was $22.3 million ($21.4 million from the gain on sale).
See Note 2Discontinued Operations for additional information on the spin-off of the Performance Fibers business and sale of the Wood Products business.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)

(Dollar amounts in thousands unless otherwise stated)

Unrecognized Tax Benefits
During second quarter 2014, the Company received a refund from the IRS related to its amended 2009 TRS tax return. As a result, Rayonier reversed the $4.8 million reserve related to the increased domestic production deduction due to the inclusion of CBPC income. The reserve was comprised of a $3.9 million reduction of current deferred tax assets and a $0.9 million unrecognized tax benefit, which was recorded in discontinued operations.
During the first quarter of 2013, the Company implemented ASU 2013-11, which requires, in certain instances, an unrecognized tax benefit (or portion of an unrecognized tax benefit) to be presented in the financial statements as a reduction to a deferred tax asset for a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss or a tax credit carryforward. As a result, the Company reclassified $3.9 million from an unrecognized tax benefit liability to a reduction to current deferred tax assets at March 31, 2014.
Deferred Taxes
The spin-off of the Performance Fibers business resulted in the contribution of deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities to Rayonier Advanced Materials and impacted the Company’s expected future use of remaining deferred tax assets. The Company’s current portion of deferred tax assets decreased from $39.1 million at December 31, 2013 to $3.2 million as of June 30, 2014. The remaining balance reflects the $15.6 million valuation allowance related to Rayonier’s limited potential use of the CBPC credit. In addition, the Company’s non-current deferred tax asset decreased $3.0 million from year-end while the non-current deferred tax liability increased $8.7 million.

5.
RESTRICTED CASH AND DEPOSITS
Pursuant to the Internal Revenue Service spin-off ruling, $75 million of the proceeds received from Rayonier Advanced Materials are restricted to pay dividends or repurchase common stock within eighteen months following the spin-off. These funds are included within the “Restricted cash” line of the Consolidated Balance Sheet and will be used to pay a special dividend of $0.50 per share in third quarter 2014.
In order to qualify for like-kind exchange (“LKE”) treatment, the proceeds from real estate sales must be deposited with a third-party intermediary. These proceeds are accounted for as restricted cash until a suitable replacement property is acquired. In the event LKE purchases are not completed, the proceeds are returned to the Company after 180 days and reclassified as available cash. As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company had $5.8 million and $68.9 million, respectively, of proceeds from real estate sales classified as restricted cash within Other Assets, which were deposited with an LKE intermediary.

6.
JOINT VENTURE INVESTMENT
On April 4, 2013 (the “acquisition date”), the Company acquired an additional 39 percent ownership interest in Matariki Forestry Group, a joint venture (“New Zealand JV”) that owns or leases approximately 0.3 million acres of New Zealand timberlands. As a result of the acquisition, Rayonier is a 65 percent owner of the New Zealand JV and 100 percent of the results of its operations subsequent to April 4, 2013 have been included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements, along with 100 percent of the JV’s assets and liabilities at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013. The portions of the consolidated financial position and results of operations attributable to the New Zealand JV’s 35 percent noncontrolling interest are also shown separately. Rayonier New Zealand Limited (“RNZ”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rayonier Inc., continues to serve as the manager of the New Zealand JV forests.
Prior to the acquisition date, the Company accounted for its 26 percent interest in the New Zealand JV as an equity method investment. The additional 39 percent interest was acquired for $139.9 million and resulted in the Company obtaining a controlling financial interest in the New Zealand JV and accordingly, the purchase was accounted for as a step-acquisition. Upon consolidation, the Company recognized a $10.1 million deferred gain, which resulted from the original sale of its New Zealand operations to the joint venture in 2005 and a $6 million benefit due to the required fair market value remeasurement of the Company’s equity interest in the New Zealand JV held before the purchase of the additional interest. The acquisition-date fair value of the previous equity interest was $93.3 million.

SEGMENT AND GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION
Rayonier operates in two reportable business segments: Forest Resources and Real Estate. Prior to the second quarter of 2014, the Company operated in three reportable business segments, which included Performance Fibers. On June 27, 2014, the Company spun-off its Performance Fibers business and its operations are shown as discontinued operations for all periods presented. See Note 2Discontinued Operations for additional information.
Forest Resources sales include all activities related to the harvesting of timber. Real Estate sales include all property sales, including those designated for higher and better use (“HBU”). The assets of the Real Estate segment include HBU property held by the Company’s real estate subsidiary, TerraPointe LLC. The Company’s remaining operations include harvesting and selling timber acquired from third parties (log trading). These operations are reported in “Other Operations.” Sales between operating segments are made based on estimated fair market value, and intercompany sales, purchases and profits (losses) are eliminated in consolidation. The Company evaluates financial performance based on the operating income of the segments.
Operating income (loss) as presented in the Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income is equal to segment income (loss). Certain income (loss) items in the Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income are not allocated to segments. These items, which include gains (losses) from certain asset dispositions, interest income (expense), miscellaneous income (expense) and income tax (expense) benefit, are not considered by management to be part of segment operations.
Total assets, sales, operating income (loss) and depreciation, depletion and amortization by segment including Corporate were as follows:

DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES
The Company is exposed to market risk related to potential fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, interest rates and fuel prices. The Company’s New Zealand JV uses derivative financial instruments to mitigate the financial impact of exposure to these risks.
Accounting for derivative financial instruments is governed by Accounting Standards Codification Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, (“ASC 815”). In accordance with ASC 815, the Company records its derivative instruments at fair value as either assets or liabilities in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Changes in the instruments’ fair value are accounted for based on their intended use. Gains and losses on derivatives that are designated and qualify for cash flow hedge accounting are recorded as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (“AOCI”) and reclassified into earnings when the hedged transaction materializes. The ineffective portion of any hedge as well as changes in the fair value of derivatives not designated as hedging instruments and those which are no longer effective as hedging instruments, are recognized immediately in earnings. The Company’s hedge ineffectiveness was immaterial for all periods presented.
Foreign Currency Exchange and Option Contracts
The functional currency of the New Zealand JV is the New Zealand dollar. These operations are exposed to foreign currency risk on export sales and ocean freight payments which are predominately denominated in US dollars. The New Zealand JV typically hedges at least 70 percent of its estimated foreign currency exposure with respect to the following three months forecasted sales and purchases and 50 percent of the forward 12 months.
The fair value of foreign currency exchange contracts is determined by a mark-to-market valuation which estimates fair value by discounting the difference between the contracted forward price and the current forward price for the residual maturity of the contract using a risk-free interest rate. The fair value of foreign currency option contracts is based on a mark-to-market calculation using the Black Scholes option pricing model.
Interest Rate Swaps
The Company uses interest rate swaps to manage the New Zealand JV’s exposure to interest rate movements on its variable rate debt attributable to changes in the New Zealand Bank bill rate. By converting a portion of these borrowings from floating rates to fixed rates the Company has reduced the impact of interest rate changes on its expected future cash outflows. As of June 30, 2014, the Company’s interest rate contracts hedged 88 percent of the New Zealand JV’s variable rate debt and had maturity dates through January 2020.

Fuel Hedge Contracts
The Company uses fuel swap contracts to manage its New Zealand JV’s exposure to changes in New Zealand’s domestic diesel prices. The fuel swaps are quoted by domestic banks in New Zealand dollar price terms. As of June 30, 2014 all of the contracts had maturities of less than one year. The fair value of the fuel swap contracts is determined by a mark-to-market valuation which estimates fair value by discounting the difference between the contracted forward price and the current forward price for the residual maturity of the contract. Effective November 2013, the New Zealand JV has not entered into any new fuel swaps.
The following tables demonstrate the impact of the Company’s derivatives on the Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013.

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The Accounting Standards Codification established a three-level hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value as follows:
Level 1 — Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 Observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1.
Level 3 Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.
The following table presents the carrying amount, estimated fair values and categorization under the fair value hierarchy of financial instruments held by the Company at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, using market information and what management believes to be appropriate valuation methodologies under generally accepted accounting principles:

(b)
See Note 9Derivative Financial Instruments and Hedging Activities for information regarding the Balance Sheet classification of the Company’s derivative financial instruments.
Rayonier uses the following methods and assumptions in estimating the fair value of its financial instruments:
Cash and cash equivalents and Restricted cashThe carrying amount is equal to fair market value.
Debt The fair value of fixed rate debt is based upon quoted market prices for debt with similar terms and maturities. The variable rate debt adjusts with changes in the market rate, therefore the carrying value approximates fair value.
Interest rate swap agreements The fair value of interest rate contracts is determined by discounting the expected future cash flows, for each instrument, at prevailing interest rates.
Foreign currency exchange contracts The fair value of foreign currency exchange contracts is determined by a mark-to-market valuation which estimates fair value by discounting the difference between the contracted forward price and the current forward price for the residual maturity of the contract using a risk-free interest rate.
Foreign currency option contracts The fair value of foreign currency option contracts is based on a mark-to-market calculation using the Black-Scholes option pricing model.

Approximately $15 million of the standby letters of credit serve as credit support for industrial revenue bonds. The remaining letters of credit support various insurance related agreements, primarily workers’ compensation, auto liability, and general liability policy requirements. These letters of credit will expire at various dates during 2014 and 2015 and will be renewed as required.
(b)
In conjunction with a timberland sale and note monetization in the first quarter of 2004, the Company issued a make-whole agreement pursuant to which it guaranteed $2.3 million of obligations of a special-purpose entity that was established to complete the monetization. At June 30, 2014, the Company has a de minimis liability to reflect the fair market value of its obligation to perform under the make-whole agreement.
(c)
Rayonier issues surety bonds primarily to secure timber harvesting obligations in the State of Washington. These surety bonds expire at various dates during 2014 and 2015 and are expected to be renewed as required.
 
12.
COMMITMENTS
The Company leases certain buildings, machinery, and equipment under various operating leases. The Company also has long-term lease agreements on certain timberlands in the Southern U.S. and New Zealand. U.S. leases typically have initial terms of approximately 30 to 65 years, with renewal provisions in some cases. New Zealand timberland lease terms range between 30 and 99 years. Such leases are generally non-cancellable and require minimum annual rental payments.
At June 30, 2014, the future minimum payments under non-cancellable operating and timberland leases were as follows:

The New Zealand JV has a number of Crown Forest Licenses (“CFL”) with the New Zealand government, which are excluded from the table above. A CFL consists of a license to use public or government owned land to operate a commercial forest. The CFL's extend indefinitely and may only be terminated upon a 35 year termination notice from the government. If no termination notice is given, the CFLs renew automatically each year for a one year term. As of June 30, 2014, the New Zealand JV has two CFL’s under termination notice, terminating in 2034 and 2046, and two fixed term CFL’s expiring in 2062. The annual license fee is determined based on current market value, with triennial rent reviews. The total annual license fee on the CFL’s is $2.7 million per year with CFL’s terminating or expiring of $0.2 million.

In connection with the spin-off of the Performance Fibers business, all prior dispositions and discontinued operations were contributed to Rayonier Advanced Materials. As part of the separation agreement, Rayonier has been indemnified, released and discharged from any liability related to these sites. For additional information on the Performance Fibers spin-off, see Note 2Discontinued Operations.
 
14.
CONTINGENCIES
Rayonier is engaged in various legal actions and has been named as a defendant in various other lawsuits and claims arising in the normal course of business. While the Company has procured reasonable and customary insurance covering risks normally occurring in connection with its businesses, it has in certain cases retained some risk through the operation of self-insurance, primarily in the areas of workers’ compensation, property insurance and general liability. These other lawsuits and claims, either individually or in the aggregate, are not expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, or cash flow.

15.
INCENTIVE STOCK PLANS
As a result of the spin-off and pursuant to the Employee Matters Agreement, the Company made certain adjustments to the exercise price and number of Rayonier stock-based compensation awards. The adjusted awards are generally subject to the same vesting conditions and other terms that applied to the original Rayonier award immediately before the spin-off, except as otherwise described below.
Stock Option Awards
Each Rayonier stock option was converted into an adjusted Rayonier stock option and a Rayonier Advanced Material stock option. The exercise price and number of shares subject to each stock option were adjusted in order to preserve the aggregate value of the original Rayonier stock option as measured immediately before and immediately after the spin-off, subject to rounding.
Restricted Stock Awards
Holders of Rayonier restricted stock, including Rayonier non-employee directors, retained those awards and also received restricted stock of Rayonier Advanced Materials, in an amount that reflects the distribution to Rayonier stockholders, by applying the distribution ratio (one share of Rayonier Advanced Materials for every three shares of Rayonier stock held) to Rayonier restricted stock awards as though they were unrestricted Rayonier common shares.

(Dollar amounts in thousands unless otherwise stated)

Performance Share Awards
Performance share awards outstanding as of the spin-off were treated as follows:
Performance share awards granted in 2012 (with a 2012-2014 performance period) continue to be subject to the same performance criteria as applied immediately prior to the spin-off, except that total shareholder return at the end of the performance period will be based on the combined stock prices of Rayonier and Rayonier Advanced Materials and any payment earned will be made in shares of Rayonier common stock and shares of Rayonier Advanced Materials common stock.
Performance share awards granted in 2013 (with a 2013-2015 performance period) were cancelled as of the distribution date and will be replaced with time-vested restricted stock of the post-separation employer of each holder (Rayonier or Rayonier Advanced Materials, as the case may be) that will vest 24 months after the distribution date, generally subject to the holder’s continued employment. The number of shares of time-vested restricted stock granted will be determined in a manner intended to preserve the original value of the performance share award, subject to rounding.
Performance share awards granted in 2014 (with a 2014-2016 performance period) were cancelled and will be replaced with performance share awards of the post-separation employer of each holder (Rayonier or Rayonier Advanced Materials, as the case may be), and will be subject to the achievement of performance criteria that relate to the post-separation business of the applicable employer during a performance period ending December 31, 2016. The number of shares underlying each such performance share award will be determined in a manner intended to preserve the original value of the award, subject to rounding.
Adjustments to Rayonier’s stock-based compensation awards did not have a material impact on compensation expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS
In connection with the spin-off of the Performance Fibers business, Rayonier entered into an Employee Matters Agreement with Rayonier Advanced Materials, see Note 2Discontinued Operations, which provides that employees of Rayonier Advanced Materials will no longer participate in benefit plans sponsored or maintained by Rayonier. Upon separation, the Rayonier Pension Plans transferred assets and obligations to the Rayonier Advanced Materials Pension Plans resulting in a net decrease in sponsored pension plan obligations of $103 million after a revaluation of plan obligations using a 4.0 percent discount rate versus 4.6 percent at December 31, 2013. In addition, $81 million of other comprehensive losses were transferred to Rayonier Advanced Materials Pension Plans after revaluation, net of taxes of $46 million. Additional spin-off related adjustments to shareholders’ equity could be recognized in the future as the split of the pension and postretirement plans is finalized.
The Company has one qualified non-contributory defined benefit pension plan covering a portion of its employees and an unfunded plan that provides benefits in excess of amounts allowable under current tax law in the qualified plan. Currently, the qualified plan is closed to new participants. Employee benefit plan liabilities are calculated using actuarial estimates and management assumptions. These estimates are based on historical information, along with certain assumptions about future events. Changes in assumptions, as well as changes in actual experience, could cause the estimates to change.
