RR Donnelley Awarded $500 Million Contract

Thursday, February 26, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

 CHICAGO -- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company announced today that it has been awarded a multi-year $500 million agreement by Publishing Group of America, a leading multi-media publisher whose well-known weekly and monthly titles include American Profile, Relish and Spry. Publishing Group of America also provides custom publishing services.

Under the terms of the agreement, RR Donnelley will provide all future printing, logistics and premedia services for Publishing Group of America's magazines.

"RR Donnelley will continue to deliver exceptional value through its integrated end-to-end capabilities," said Richard Porter, Chief Executive Officer of Publishing Group of America. "Their financial strength, ability to provide on-site premedia services, their proven production platform and sophisticated logistics resources are an ideal match with our challenging requirements."

Publishing Group of America's magazine titles are distributed to subscribers and newsstand purchasers of approximately 1,100 weekly and smaller market daily newspapers. The production and delivery of millions of copies of the titles, in the right quantities, on the right schedules, to the right newspapers for distribution requires tight coordination between publisher and printer.

"Readers from coast-to-coast who enjoy Publishing Group of America's magazines probably cannot begin to guess at the complex process that brings these titles to their doors," stated Tom Quinlan, RR Donnelley's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are very proud that the tightly woven capabilities that we have built will help to streamline that process, reduce cycle times and deliver enhanced value as we support Publishing Group of America."
