Standard Register Offers E-Delivery of Financial Data and Proxy Materials

Press release from the issuing company

Shareholders Will be Able to Vote Their Shares Electronically DAYTON, Ohio--Jan. 8, 2002--Standard Register announced today that its shareholders will now be able to receive financial materials and proxies online and will also be eligible to vote their shares electronically. The service allows shareholders, whether beneficial or registered, to consent to receive proxy materials and other financial documents (e.g., annual reports, 10-K, 10-Q) electronically via the Standard Register website (www.standardregister.com). Once shareholders have given their consent, they will begin receiving all financial communications from Standard Register via an e-mail link to the content, which resides on the Standard Register website. They will also be given three options -- Internet, in person at the annual shareholders' meeting or U.S. Mail -- for how they'd like to vote their shares. "Electronic delivery of financial information and online proxy voting provides a variety of benefits,'' said Robert Cestelli, associate vice president- Investor Relations. "It provides for immediate distribution of financial information and proxies. It helps our shareholders save space and reduce paper usage, which also has a positive impact on the environment. And it helps the company control costs by minimizing the printing and shipping of financial materials.'' An added benefit, said Cestelli, is that shareholders who vote their shares electronically can change their votes up to the time of the annual meeting, an option not easily available to those who vote their shares via one of the other methods.
