Renews And Expands Relationship With Magazine Printing, Logistics And Premedia Services

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 25, 2009--R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (NYSE:RRD) announced today that it has been awarded a multi-year $500 million agreement by Publishing Group of America, a leading multi-media publisher whose well-known weekly and monthly titles include American Profile, Relish and Spry. Publishing Group of America also provides custom publishing services.

Under the terms of the agreement, RR Donnelley will provide all future printing, logistics and premedia services for Publishing Group of America's magazines. "RR Donnelley will continue to deliver exceptional value through its integrated end-to-end capabilities," said Richard Porter, Chief Executive Officer of Publishing Group of America.

Publishing Group of America's magazine titles are distributed to subscribers and newsstand purchasers of approximately 1,100 weekly and smaller market daily newspapers. The production and delivery of millions of copies of the titles, in the right quantities, on the right schedules, to the right newspapers for distribution requires tight coordination between publisher and printer.
