    Does anybody know yet. (1) Do shareholders get the spinoff shares tax free, with the tradeoff being...a lower cost basis on current holdings? (2) What would the yield be on the spinoff shares? (3) What's the profit figure on that division of Kim-Clark?

    100 per cent will be a tax free spin- off to shareholders. Ratio not yet determined.

    It'd probably be like a 3 for 2
