RISI Acquires Seybold From CMP Media

Press release from the issuing company

BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS (August 1, 2006) – RISI, a leading business-to-business information provider, today announced the acquisition of the printing and publishing industry publication The Seybold Report from CMP Media LLC. Launched in 1971, The Seybold Report is the pioneering publication devoted to cross-media tools, technologies and trends shaping print and Internet publishing. Published twice a month, it includes industry commentary, product critiques, technology reviews, and case studies. RISI’s acquisition also includes The Seybold Bulletin, a weekly email summary of printing and publishing industry news. “The proliferation of new production technologies continues to make the printing and publishing industry a quickly evolving and highly competitive marketplace,” Rod Young, RISI’s CEO, commented. “Many companies struggle to stay abreast of the issues that are affecting this growth. RISI’s news and analysis have long been a key source for our clients in printing and publishing to make the best decisions about their businesses, and the Seybold publications supply content that complements this information very well.” Rhiannon James-van Beuningen, vice president for editorial products at RISI, stated, “We are committed to bringing Seybold’s editorial quality back to the level that readers have enjoyed in the past. We will be sending out a comprehensive reader survey soon, and I will also be working closely with all the editorial contributors to the Seybold Report to plan enhancements to the publication.”
