Citic New Zealand has announced that it is now of the view that court action is inevitable as it seeks to resolve the outstanding disputes between itself and Fletcher Challenge Forests in relation to the Central North Island Forestry
Citic also says that it will not agree to any proposal to split the forestry partnership's assets if the dispute cannot be settled.
Last week Fletcher chairman, Rod Deane, said moving to split the assets in the partnership, either by mutual agreement or by way of court proceedings, is another alternative open to the company if the two parties cannot reach agreement.
However Citic says such a split will destroy value and will not resolve the disputes.
Fletcher spokesperson Ginny Radford says if the dispute does end up in court her company will vigorously defend itself, but Fletcher is still hopeful it won't come to that.
