Share this content:

RR Donnelley & Sons has expressed interest in acquiring all or substantially all of Quebecor World's assets and properties, and is offering to pay Quebecor debtors approximately $957 million cash and 30 million shares, valued at $394 million as of the closing price on May 11.

letter to Quebecor's top executives, which RR Donnelley released to the press, indicates that the company first expressed interest in acquiring Quebecor World last August, but never received any response. Quebecor World is currently involved in a reorganization as part of bankruptcy proceedings in the US and Canada.

“Quebecor World and RR Donnelley have long represented a strong strategic fit with one another and, through this proposal, we have the opportunity to join them together in a way that greatly benefits stakeholders of both companies, including Quebecor World's debtors and their creditors,” said Thomas J. Quinlan III, president and CEO, at RR Donnelley, in a statement.

“Our offer would significantly enhance our ability to provide customers more comprehensive end-to-end printing solutions, expand our geographic reach into the important Canadian market and better balance our capacity with customer demand – all while achieving significant immediate and long-lasting synergies,” he said.
