RR Donnelley To Provide EBook Services For Harlequin

CHICAGO, May 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company (Nasdaq:RRD) announced today that it has been awarded an agreement to provide eBook services and digital content fulfillment to Harlequin. Under the terms of the agreement, which renews and expands the companies' relationship, RR Donnelley will provide eBook conversion services, asset management, delivery to Harlequin's business partners and retailers as well as digital content fulfillment. Services will be provided using RR Donnelley's LibreDigital platform.

Harlequin will also use RR Donnelley's new LibreDigital eBook distribution platform called Harvest when it becomes available in the summer of 2013. This electronic portal provides publishers with access to hundreds of retailers in 75 different marketplaces and allows titles to become available immediately upon release. A preview of the Harvest technology platform will be available at the BookExpo America conference through June 1 in New York City.

"Harlequin is unique in the publishing industry, combining leading imprints, a successful consumer reader service, innovative websites and forward-looking technology," stated Brent Lewis, Harlequin's Executive Vice President of North American Marketing & Digital. "We believe that RR Donnelley complements these qualities with its own forward-looking technologies and that they will further enhance our readers' experiences."

Harlequin, owned by Toronto-based media company Torstar Corporation, is one of the world's leading publishers of books for women. Publishing over 110 titles a month, the company issues titles in 31 languages and sells its books in 110 international markets. Harlequin sells books through retail channels in stores and online, and directly to consumers through its direct mail businesses and its Internet sites.

"RR Donnelley offers publishers a complete suite of production and distribution resources to support both their print and digital supply chains through a single provider," said Dan Knotts, RR Donnelley's Chief Operating Officer.
