Universal millennium acquires Acme

Monday, February 22, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

On January 27, 2010 Westwood, MA.-based Universal Millennium ("UM"), a portfolio company of Calvert Street Capital Partners, acquired the assets of Wilmington, MA.-based Acme Printing Company, LLC ("Acme"), from the Matlet Group.  The transaction brings together two of the largest and most respected independent graphic communications companies in New England, further expanding the depth of  capabilities available to UM's clients, and cementing a powerful foundation for the company's further growth up the marketing services value chain. "Acme has a rich history providing exceptional service and high quality commercial print and direct mail products to local, regional and national clients," said Bill Fitzgerald, UM's CEO. "Together, our company is even better positioned to  provide customers with a powerful suite of capabilities--including Web-to-print, e-delivery,  digital print, sheetfed print,  heatset web offset, bindery, promotional products, fulfillment, distribution, mailing and data management services--across three state-of-the-art facilities."

Brian Mahoney, a Senior Partner with Calvert Street Capital Partners, commented, "The Acme transaction represents the fourth acquisition in UM's strategic "Buy and Build" growth plan.  Acme supplements the company's traditional print production platform while also advancing its ability to offer comprehensive marketing solutions, "from thought through distribution", to achieve clients' marketing objectives."

Toward that end, UM continues to seek strategic acquisition opportunities to extend its geographic reach and expand its front-end, data management and high value-add marketing services capabilities.  Specifically, UM seeks opportunities to partner with business owners serving diversified end markets offering:
• Traditional and digital print, mailing and fulfillment services in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.
• Data management, data analytics and IT-driven marketing solutions and a "program selling" approach nationally.
