ALPHARETTA, Ga., Dec. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Schweitzer-Mauduit International, Inc. (NYSE: SWM) believes that today's movement in the price of its stock might be due to investor reaction to a news article that appeared in a tobacco industry trade publication late last week that a competitor entered a supply agreement with a European based cigarette company to supply an unspecified amount of fire safe cigarette paper. SWM has no news to report.
