Friday, October 11, 2002
CARLSBAD, CA (October 10, 2002) – Real Capital Markets, the largest private online marketplace for institutional property transactions in the nation announces another cost and time saving initiative “Print on Demand” for its clients by partnering with Mimeo, the premier Internet-based on-demand document printing, binding and delivery service. Real Capital Markets clients or anyone utilizing the Real Capital Markets services will be able to automate their printing and distribution procedures and reduce their printing and handling overhead by utilizing the services provided by Mimeo. This new partnership now enables the customers of Real Capital Markets to migrate the printing, binding and delivery of their offering memorandums, private placement memorandums and important underwriting documents to “On-Demand Printing” rather than “Print, Inventory and Waste.” From any computer, anywhere in the world, users can securely initiate the printing of their full color or black and white offering materials directly to the Mimeo production facility through the Real Capital Markets platform. Documents are then printed, bound and shipped, according to customer specifications. The sales teams can have their printed material on the recipient’s desk by 8:00 am thefollowing business day if the order is placed by 8:00 pm Eastern time the day before. Customers who want to utilize their company specific covers and dividers may do so with the Print on Demand system. Mimeo is the leading provider of Internet-based outsourced printing solutions for corporations around the world, offering quality, convenience and hard dollar savings for the production, management and distribution of hardcopy documents. Through its strategic alliance with Hewlett-Packard (HWC), Mimeo remains at the forefront of the print on demand industry with innovative print technology. Mimeo’s Exact Print software, combined with a state-of-the-art manufacturing process, ensures a perfect print every time in a secure, user-friendly environment. Clients can view a virtual proof of how their finished document will look when delivered. The system offers a vast array of options such as customized tabs, binders and paper products, allowing customers to produce a document directly from their desktop. Mimeo’s relationship with FedEx (FDX) allows users to have finished documents delivered anywhere in North America the next day. Headquartered in New York City, with a state-of-the-art printing facility located adjacent to FedEx’s worldwide distribution hub in Memphis, TN, Mimeo successfully prints, binds and delivers documents in an easy-to-use, cost-efficient and timely manner.

When Real Capital Markets set out in early 2000 to establish an online, state-of-the-art commercial real estate marketing and transaction platform whose goal – using technology, information and industry experience to reduce cost, improve the response rate, accelerate the process and eventually become paperless – was, and remains, a top priority. “Mimeo is another way to help our clients maximize productivity and focus on growing their business,” says Gary Allen, president and co-founder of Real Capital Markets. Allen further says, “We found that most real estate production teams are looking for ways to reduce the amount of time, money and effort necessary to produce and distribute quality offering materials. We provide a way to not only distribute and track the electronic versions of the materials, but deliver high quality hard copy offering and due diligence materials on demand at the press of a button.” With the Internet revolutionizing business-to-business commerce, it was only a matter of time before printing went online. John Lyons, CEO of Mimeo, said “The convenient Mimeo system saves time and money for busy real estate professionals.” Real Capital Markets, headquartered in Carlsbad, California, currently provides services for North American properties and is planning to expand to Europe and Asia later this year with the rest of the world to follow in 2003.
