PC Mall Changes Its Corporate Name To PCM, Inc. And Ticker Symbol To PCMI

Stocks in this article: MALL

PCM, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCMI) formerly PC Mall, Inc. (NASDAQ:MALL) announced today that effective December 31, 2012, we have changed our legal corporate name to PCM, Inc. from PC Mall, Inc. In connection with the rebranding, effective January 2, 2013, our Common Stock commenced trading on NASDAQ under the ticker PCMI and no longer trades under the prior ticker of MALL.

In addition, effective December 31, 2012, we have combined our primary commercial subsidiaries PC Mall Sales, Inc., Sarcom, Inc. and PC Mall Services, Inc. into a single subsidiary. The combined subsidiary will operate under the unified commercial brand PCM and will generally include our SMB, MME and portions of our Corporate & Other segments. Additionally, in connection with the rebranding, effective December 31, 2012, our PC Mall Gov, Inc. subsidiary changed its name to PCMG, Inc. and will operate under the PCM-G brand.

Commenting on the changes, Frank Khulusi, PCM’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said “Over the past several years, our company has grown into an approximately $1.5 billion enterprise in part through our acquisition and internal cultivation of different brands. We have historically differentiated those brands primarily based on the identity of the customers they serve. After careful examination of the trends taking shape in the markets we serve, we determined that going forward, our commercial customers can benefit from a more unified and streamlined brand strategy. Accordingly, we have consolidated our commercial brands and realigned our customer segments in an effort to realize significant growth and to achieve a more efficient cost structure. We are very excited about this evolution as we believe it will lead to an improved customer experience, operational synergies and benefits to all of our stakeholders, leveraging a brand that better represents the technology solutions provider we have become.”
