Quad/Graphics Receives Court Approval to Acquire Vertis


Quad/Graphics, Inc. and Vertis Holdings, Inc. jointly announced that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court has approved the companies’ proposed sale agreement, clearing the way for the sale to close. The companies are in the final stages of integration planning and expect to close the transaction in January.

Quad/Graphics and Vertis first announced on October 10, 2012, the execution of an agreement through which Quad/Graphics will acquire substantially all of the assets comprising Vertis’ businesses.
