Press release from the issuing company

DAYTON, Ohio--Sept. 12, 2001--Standard Register, a leader in document management and workflow solutions, announced today that the company will match employee donations to the American Red Cross, up to a total corporate gift of $100,000. With a workforce of more than 6,000 people, Standard Register believes the effort could raise at least $200,000 to help in the rescue and relief efforts resulting from yesterday's terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. Additional efforts include the company facilitating the donation of blood by its employees. "The tragedy has impacted us all in some way. It has touched our families, our friends, our customers, and our colleagues,'' said Standard Register Chief Executive Officer Dennis Rediker. "We will do what we can as a company and as individuals to help those affected. Giving to the Red Cross for disaster relief and humanitarian aid is one of the ways we look to make a difference.'' The cash donation of up to $100,000 is part of Standard Register's charitable contribution program. Annually the company and its associated foundation donate in excess of $1 million in cash plus additional resources to make a positive impact on the communities where it operates.
