Cate Street Capital of Portsmouth, N.H., which describes itself as a national leader in developing green energy companies, signed an asset purchase agreement on Tuesday for the Millinocket and East Millinocket mills for an undisclosed price. The closure of the deal could come as early as mid-September, state officials said.
"This is a significant milestone in our efforts to not only restore papermaking in the Katahdin region, but to create job opportunities for Mainers," LePage said in a statement. "I want to commend the hard work and commitment of Brookfield [Asset Management, the mills' owner] and Cate Street. We look forward to continuing to work toward a closing."
