Press release from the issuing company

VALENCIA, Calif.--Sept. 10, 2004-- An aggressive "independent" player officially re-joined the printing industry today -- Delta Printing Solutions, completing the acquisition of the printing unit of Arvato Services, Inc., was formally launched as an independent and privately owned company on November 3, 2003. Delta also announced the appointment of Ann Gayou as President of the new company. Gayou had been Vice President of the former Arvato print division since October 2000. According to Gayou, Delta's new position as a stand-alone print solution provider will deliver the focus and agility needed to pursue high-growth opportunities created by the communications revolution and the publishing industry. "As part of Arvato Services, our organization built a solid reputation for delivering world-class printed products in pre-press, web heat-set, bindery and distribution technology," said Gayou. "As a dedicated organization solely committed to the printing services business, we're well positioned to move new solutions to market faster than ever before through quicker decision-making and deployment of resources, aggressive marketing, and risk-taking. In the past 9 months, we've made Delta a more agile company by focusing on our value added businesses and streamlining our processes." Delta will grow by developing advanced print management solutions for its customers' product launches, based on its core manufacturing and distribution technologies. It will continue to focus on high-growth segments of the publishing, gaming and industrial trade markets where its solutions and manufacturing expertise delivers the greatest value. "The printing industry is constantly redefining itself, not only to meet the challenges of its rapidly changing environment, but to anticipate and even shape them," said Gayou. "The Internet boom, the communications revolution, and other developing technologies that enable the delivery of printed content to the consumer represent the industry's most significant opportunities yet. As a growing company, we're poised to meet these challenges by getting closer to our customers at the publishing stage and delivering advanced solutions where our core competencies bring clear advantage to their products. We designed our new logo to symbolize, in two parts our plan to pursue opportunities nationally and internationally, and secondly, underscore our legacy in world-class printing technology."
