My guess we will know next week.Joel thinks this will send his stock up,by unloading the under performing/costly Canadian division.(dam those Canadians ,they have laws that protect the workers)He can then start unloading some of his stock in order to purchase his new 60 foot yacht "Got Ya".And to all the Quadbotts sorry "Quad 1" is leaking at the seams and sinking fast,but don't worry your all part of the family. We have alot more World Color Plants to close to keep work here in cheese land and when that runs out...well its been a slice (get it Cheese)Hey did you check the new blueberry kool-aid in the cafe.

Not sure if that's good news or not. They would just put work in their existing plants and close us down.

In the St. Cloud plant they installed a Gatoraid machine for the workers to drink from. Sort of ironic if you think about it.

Agree that I am not sure if it is good news or not but leaning towards good news. We don't have too many jobs left to do at Aurora with the layoffs we had two weeks ago. Anything is better than the present situation.

Lack of their own identity. Freude would enjoy that person. What manifests in a person's mind for people to try to be someone who they are not??? Call human services so they can intervene. They might have a helpline that person could reach.

It is just someone upset with their own insecurities. They are trying to be noticed. Bad attention is better than no attention. But consider it as a compliment that they want to try to be like you. But you can tell by the writing that there is a difference in the intellect. Unfortunately for them.

Today I am writing to share that we have entered into an agreement with Montreal-based printer Transcontinental whereby Quad/Graphics will acquire Transcontinentalís Mexican operations and we will sell Transcontinental our Canadian operations (with the exception of the Vancouver facility).

Also as part of the agreement we will receive a portion of Transcontinentalís Canadian book printing business that is produced for U.S. export.

This is a big decision for us as a company and one we gave considerable thought. I am confident that it is the right decision for our business because of the value it will create long term.

Under terms of the agreement we will sell Transcontinental our facilities in Aurora, Concord, Dartmouth, Edmonton, LaSalle, Montreal and Toronto (Que Net Media). Our Vancouver facility will remain part of Quad/Graphics and will be used to produce inserts for U.S. retailers.

In return, we will acquire Transcontinentalís three facilities in Azcapotzalco, Toluca and Xochimilco, Mexico. This will allow us to build on our existing presence in Mexico and position ourselves to be a leader in a country that has a growing middle class with a population three times the size of Canada.

For more details about todayís announcement, please read our press release. As I have communicated frequently, our global strategy is to grow profitably in geographies and segments where we can be a market leader through a diverse product offering, and a superior and efficient operating platform.

Canada is a highly competitive print market and to drive growth there would have required a substantial capital investment in our platform. We were prepared to make that investment; however, when Transcontinental approached us with a proposal to grow our presence in Mexico, we revisited our plans for Canada.

Ultimately, we decided it would be better for our business long term to divest in Canada and focus on the tremendous growth opportunities in Mexico.
For all of you in Canada, I realize todayís announcement brings uncertainty. Your journey over the past few years has not been easy. Nevertheless youíve always shown yourselves to be dependable and hard working, and I thank you for performing well for our customers.

Transcontinental is a good printing company that has a long-standing reputation for taking care of its people. The next few months will be busy as we finalize this agreement, which includes obtaining all required regulatory approvals. The agreement allows for the Mexican and Canadian transactions to close independently of each other; however, both are expected to close this fall.

Until then, it is business as usual, so please continue to keep your competitive focus. Transcontinental and Quad/Graphics remain separate and independent companies, and our customers are depending on us to continue performing well.

Thank you. I will update you on the progress of the transactions as appropriate.

Joel Quadracci
Chairman, President & CEO
