Quebecor Receives $1 Billion Financing Plan

Friday, January 25, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

January 23, 2008 - Montréal, Canada – Quebecor World Inc. today received the initial United States court orders it sought as part of its court supervised reorganization and protection. United States Judge James Peck today provided the final authorization needed for Quebecor World Inc. to borrow up to $750 million under the terms of the credit facility from Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley. Together with the approval of this loan by the Quebec Superior Court earlier this week, today’s approval clears the way for Quebecor World to obtain the cash infusion, the first part of a $1 billion in new financing. The proceeds of the financing will be used to fund its operations as the Company reorganizes under the protection of the courts in the United States and Canada.

The Court also granted a series of other requests from Quebecor World’s subsidiaries in the United States. Among other things, the Court authorized the Company to continue to honor its ongoing obligations to its employees and to honor all commitments to the Company’s customers so as to ensure that customers receive the same high level of service they depend upon to meet their advertising and publishing needs.
