Courier Boosts Customized Textbook Capabilities With Acquisition of Highcrest Media

Courier Corporation (Nasdaq: CRRC), one of America’s leading book

manufacturers and specialty publishers, today announced that it has

acquired Highcrest Media LLC, a provider of software and solutions that

streamline the production of customized textbooks for use in colleges,

universities and businesses. Founded in 2006 and based in Wilmington,

Massachusetts, Highcrest has grown quickly through its combination of

easy-to-use Web-based technology and strong focus on the highest-growth

segment of the textbook market.

Courier’s acquisition of Highcrest complements its recent investment in

digital printing technology, which is also ideally suited to the

capacity and efficiency needs of this growing market. Together, the two

initiatives significantly strengthen Courier’s capabilities in digital

book manufacturing. Highcrest’s largest customer is also a Courier

customer.

“College professors around the country are flocking to this new

technology,” said Courier Chairman and Chief Executive Officer James F.

Conway III. “Using Highcrest’s software, they can create a textbook that

contains only the information they want to teach from—eliminating waste

and reducing costs. By bringing Highcrest Media to Courier, we are

placing ourselves at the forefront of this trend as a strategic resource

for a key customer base. Highcrest’s expertise fits perfectly into our

vision and portfolio.”

Highcrest President Michael Shea has been spearheading advances in

on-demand and Web-based technology for over a decade. “Our software has

won wide acceptance by making it easy for users to control the whole

process of generating customized content,” said Shea. “By joining forces

with Courier, we will extend our production capabilities by an order of

magnitude. At the same time, we add a significant capability to

Courier’s already industry-leading credentials in the textbook market.”

The acquisition is expected to be modestly accretive to Courier earnings

for its 2010 fiscal year. Acquisition terms were not disclosed.
