BCC Software releases statement regarding PRC decision

Friday, October 01, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Rochester, NY — BCC Software announces the following statement by company President Christopher Lien, in response to today's announcement by the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) regarding the proposed exigency rate case:

“We appreciate the perspective and sound judgment exercised by the PRC in their denial of the Postal Service’s request for a rate case based on exigency. Although the USPS is undeniably in a difficult financial position, sharp rate increases cannot be considered a cure-all for the cumulative conditions facing this proud organization.

“With this decision comes the natural question of ‘What’s Next?’ We at BCC encourage the mailing industry – who spoke so passionately against this proposed rate case for the past several months – to continue to make their voices heard. Congressional representatives must relieve the USPS of its mandated legislative burden in pivotal areas including retirement pre-funding and delivery frequency. The solution to this period of adversity must be found in innovation, and in strategic business decisions that adhere to modern competitive practices.

“BCC continues to support innovative actions by the USPS and the entire postal industry, as the necessary steps toward resolving our current situation.”

BCC and its parent company, BÖWE BELL + HOWELL, are members of the Coalition for a 21st Century Postal Service, a lobbying coalition composed of companies heavily dependent upon the Postal Service™, such as printers, magazine publishers, financial institutions and direct marketers. When the Postal Service announced its proposed exigency rate case, the Coalition lobbied Congress to reject the proposal.
