Thursday, February 26, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

MONTREAL -- Following the recent announcement by Hearst Corporation, the owner of the San Francisco Chronicle, Transcontinental wants to reaffirm:

     1. Further to discussions with Hearst, the preparation of its plant
        continues as scheduled and the Chronicle expects to begin production
        in June 2009.
     2. For the San Francisco Chronicle, the outsourcing of its newspaper's
        printing is part of a strategy to reduce costs and give the Chronicle
        industry-leading color reproduction capabilities.
     3. The contract signed with Hearst Corporation provides for
        indemnification should the San Francisco Chronicle cease publication
        or be sold.
