Company reports a loss of $4.9 million in first quarter.

Paper products manufacturer Wausau Paper (NYSE: WPP), Mosinee, WI, reported sales for the first quarter of $77.5 million, down 1 percent year-over-year. Wausau reported a loss of $4.9 million for the quarter, compared to a loss of $29.6 million in the first quarter of 2013.

"We remain confident in our longer term growth, particularly with the strong performance of our DublNature premium product and the potential of the new Artisan product line, which will be launched in the second quarter.”
