Amendment Description This Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment”) to the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q of Rayonier Inc. (the “Company”) for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2014 is being filed to amend and restate in their entirety the following items of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2014 that was filed on August 8, 2014 (the “Original Filing”): (i) Item 1 of Part I, “Financial Information,” (ii) Item 2 of Part I, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” and (iii) Item 4 of Part I, “Controls and Procedures.” The Company has also updated the signature page, the certifications of its chief executive officer and chief financial officer in Exhibits 31.1, 31.2 and 32 and its unaudited consolidated financial statements formatted in Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) in Exhibit 101. Concurrently with the filing of this Amendment, the Company is also filing Amendment No. 1 to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013, Amendment No. 1 to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2014 and Amendment No. 1 to its Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 3, 2014. On June 27, 2014, the Company spun off its Performance Fibers business to its shareholders as a newly formed publicly traded company named Rayonier Advanced Materials Inc. Following the spin-off, new management conducted a review of the Company’s operations and business strategies and identified issues related to its historical timber harvest levels, its estimate of merchantable timber inventory and the effect of such estimate on its calculation of depletion expense in each of the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2014. At the direction of the Company’s Board of Directors, management commenced an internal review into these matters with the assistance of independent counsel, forensic accountants and financial advisers. As a result of the internal review, the Company concluded that it included in merchantable timber inventory for 2014, timber in specially designated parcels located in restricted, environmentally sensitive or economically inaccessible areas, which was incorrect, inconsistent with its definition of merchantable inventory, and a significant change from prior years. As a result, the Company concluded that it understated its depletion expense in cost of goods sold (referred to as “Cost of sales” in the Company's consolidated statements of income) by approximately $2.0 million in each of the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2014, which resulted in a corresponding overstatement of income from continuing operations of $1.9 million and $2.0 million, respectively, in those periods. In addition, management determined that there was a material weakness in the Company’s internal controls related to merchantable timber inventory, as discussed in Part I, Item 4 of this Amendment. Accordingly, the Company has filed this Amendment and the restated interim consolidated financial statements contained herein. Further details of the errors and the impact on the unaudited financial statements set forth in the Original Filing are contained in Note 3 — Restatement of Previously Issued Consolidated Financial Statements in the Notes to the Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements included in this Amendment. The Company has not modified or updated disclosures presented in the Original Filing, except to reflect the effects of the restatement of the Company’s financial statements and disclose the material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting that has been identified since the date of the Annual Report on Form 10-K, as described above. Accordingly, this Amendment does not reflect events occurring after the Original Filing, except as noted above, and this Amendment continues to speak as of the date of the Original Filing. Therefore, this Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Company’s other filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission subsequent to the filing of the Original Filing, including any amendments to those filings.
