Press release from the issuing company

Los Angeles, CA August 2, 2004 — Graphic Press, a minority-owned premier quality web and sheetfed printing company located in Los Angeles, CA, recently hired five new seasoned sales representatives and, as a result of its continuing rapid growth, has expanded operations into an additional 35,000 sq. ft. space located adjacent to its existing site. The new space will add to bindery operations, and workflow will be integrated between the two buildings. “We are so fortunate the new space became available when it did,” says Graphic Press CEO, John Zamora. “Thanks to our talented sales team—including the five new outstanding reps who recently joined us—business is booming and we are bursting at the seams.” The five new sales reps include: Max Uyekawa, Tim O’Connor, and Stacy Heyer covering Southern California; Ted Marston, who’s been added to the Northern California team; and David Estrem in Chicago. “It’s exciting to have these seasoned pros on board, several of whom we’ve known for many years,” says Executive Vice President of Sales, Pete Stein. “All of them come with impressive track records, so we’re confident they’ll make great contributions to the full-speed-ahead momentum we’ve achieved since opening our doors four years ago.” Graphic Press, Inc. is the largest minority-owned premier quality web and sheetfed commercial printer in the United States. The company features an all-digital workflow environment, from prepress to press, utilizing all new Heidelberg equipment including two 8-color Sunday web 2000 presses, and three 8-color and one 11-color sheetfed presses, all with closed-loop color control systems, and has an extensive bindery operation. The company provides services to major domestic and international Fortune 500 companies in industries such as automotive, financial, travel, fashion/apparel, healthcare, telecommunications and food services. The company is extremely customer focused and specializes in high-impact multi-color brochures and support materials, such as annual reports, magazine inserts, promotional literature, advertising collateral, and general corporate identity and marketing collateral. Graphic Press recently closed a $9 million growth capital investment deal from Nogales Investors, a private equity firm headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, which has helped continue to fuel the company’s tremendous growth.
