Friday, February 14, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Montreal – TC Transcontinental Printing, a division of TC Transcontinental (TSX : TCL.A TCL. B TCL.PR.D) announced today that it is selling the assets of Rastar, based in Utah, USA, a subsidiary which specializes in personalized print products. Rastar will be acquired by Digibell, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Sun Litho, one of the most well-known commercial printers in Utah since 1941.

"The decision to dispose of Rastar's assets is consistent with our strategy to focus on our commercial printing operations in Canada. We are certain that Rastar's customers will continue to be well served by the new owner and we thank them for their support over the past several years. We also thank all our employees for their dedication and support and wish them every success in the future," said Brian Reid, President of TC Transcontinental Printing.

"Rastar is an exceptional fit with our operation.  Sun Litho has been one of the premier commercial printers and packaging companies in the region while Rastar is one of the very best digital print companies in the country. This move will allow us to offer a full range of solutions to our customers," said Jeff Isbell, President and CEO of Sun Litho.

Goodbye Rastar, so sad to see you go.

Kevin Despain and parters Grant Fletcher and Don Smith - along with a couple of hundred bright, dedicated employees - changed the world for the better with this amazing company.

You will long be remembered!
