First off - the information I have is from a phone conversation with a sale rep. Generally, I've found such information to be less than 100% reliable.
Nevertheless, here goes:
I spoke with a sales rep. at Freestyle Photo on the evening of January 24th. Forte is in receivership and local Hungarian government is serving as the liquidator. Existing production obligations will be completed in the next 30 days and then the company will suspend operations for good. A buyer had come forth in early December but did not prove reputable and no deal was closed.
I hope its wrong, but I'm not seeing any re-stocking of Forte papers anywhere.
