LSC Communications Announces Strategic Equity Investment in Content Logistics Company MAZ

Share:

Will harness MAZ's technology to complement and expand LSC's legacy
distribution platform

LSC Communications, Inc. (NYSE:LKSD), a leader in traditional and
digital printing solutions, announced today an equity investment and the
signing of a definitive reseller agreement with MAZ Systems
Incorporated. MAZ is a New York City-based content logistics company
that enables brands, media and publishers to publish any content to
various output channels, including mobile applications, OTT
(over-the-top), social media, video and news aggregators, gaming
consoles, voice assistants, wearable technology and more.

Founded in 2010 by former Apple and Adobe designers and engineers, MAZ
launched the world's first Content Logistics System to solve the issue
that many companies face of delivering their content to an ever-growing
and unscalable list of social platforms, devices and operating systems.
Most companies solve these content logistics problems by hiring
developers to manually build out each distribution output one by one,
only to find themselves needing to build again and again as new output
types inevitably emerge.

MAZ, a cloud-based software suite, manages the processing, filtering,
packaging, and shipping of content to current and emerging outputs, all
from a single dashboard, at a fraction of the cost. MAZ is used by
brands like Forbes, Fast Company, Condé Nast, American Media, Inc., USA
Today, Outside TV, and hundreds of others.

LSC will harness MAZ's technology to complement and expand its legacy
platform to expose clients to new distribution solutions that help
streamline and accelerate their business strategies beyond print. "The
investment in MAZ signals our desire to strengthen LSC's leadership
position in content logistics, distribution and monetization across all
formats, channels and platforms," said Chris W. Schraft, President of
Business Development at LSC. "MAZ's state-of-the-art solution set and
technology platform provide natural alignment with where we're taking
the business. We look forward to helping our publishing and
marketing clients go beyond print and effectively navigate the
complexities of the new media landscape as they look to reach and engage
their desired audiences across an ever-expanding array of digital
endpoints."

"There is a clear alignment in our strategic visions of the future,"
said Paul Canetti, CEO of MAZ. "LSC is a leader in traditional content
distribution and logistics, and we have built a parallel infrastructure
for digital content. This investment will empower us to bring our
Content Logistics System to the next generation of content creators, who
will be distributing not only across the devices and platforms we use
today, but to all the emerging distribution outputs of the future."
