Item 8.01 Other Events.

On October 2, 2009, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) notified Boise Inc. that the company had regained compliance with the NYSE’s quantitative continued listing standards. The notice stated that the decision resulted from the company’s consistent, positive performance with respect to its original business plan submission, the achievement of compliance with the NYSE’s minimum share price requirement on May 31, 2009, and the achievement of compliance with the NYSE’s minimum market capitalization requirement over the past two quarterly review periods. As of October 2, the company’s common stock closed at $5.15 per share, with a market capitalization of $435 million.

As previously reported, the company had received a letter of noncompliance from the NYSE in November 2008 notifying the company it had fallen below both the minimum share price and market capitalization requirements for continued listing on the NYSE.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
