Quad/Graphics to Obtain Vertis Communications
Vertis also has filed a series of first day motions seeking authority to continue paying employee wages and benefits; honoring media prepayments, postage deposits and other commitments under existing client programs; and otherwise managing its day-to-day operations and serving its clients as usual. It expects to pay suppliers in the normal course for all goods and services delivered after Oct. 10, 2012. Payment for goods and services delivered prior to the filing will be addressed by Vertis through the Chapter 11 process.
Quad/Graphics will announce its plans for integration following the completion of the sale process, including any changes to the combined companies’ manufacturing and service platform.
Vertis is advised in this transaction by Perella Weinberg Partners, Alvarez & Marsal, and Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP. Quad/Graphics is advised by Blackstone Advisory Partners, Arnold & Porter LLP and Foley & Lardner LLP, special counsel for antitrust advice.
