This Supplement provides additional information with respect to the 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) of Clearwater Paper Corporation (the “Company”) to be held on Monday, May 17, 2021.  This Supplement, which describes a recent change in the directors continuing in office and not up for election at the Annual Meeting and instructions for participating in the Annual Meeting via webcast, should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement.

Director Independence

The Board has determined that Ms. Vickers Tucker satisfies the independence criteria set forth in the corporate governance standards of the New York Stock Exchange.  

Voting Matters

Because the change in directors described in this Supplement does not pertain to the class of directors up for election at the Annual Meeting, none of the agenda items presented in the Notice and Proxy Statement are affected by this Supplement.  If you have already voted your shares via the internet, telephone, or by returning your proxy card or voting instruction form, you do not need to take any action unless you wish to change your vote.  Shares already voted by proxy will remain valid and will be voted at the Annual Meeting.
