After emerging from the Great Recession as a consolidator of the fragmented printing industry, Quad/Graphics Inc. is starting to see the payoff from all that addition and subtraction. The Sussex company, long known as a printer but now also more involved in digital advertising and marketing, is growing earnings, generating cash flow, reducing debt and investing in its facilities, all while paying a dividend. Quad/Graphics’ stock price almost tripled in 2016, to $26.88 per share from $9.30, putting it atop the Morningstar Wisconsin Ticker for the year. The Ticker tracks percentage changes in the stock price of the state’s publicly traded companies. click Read More below for additional detail
Following close consultation with exhibitors and partners, the 2021 edition of drupa, the world’s leading trade fair for printing technologies, will be cancelled due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The next event will take place as scheduled from May 28 – June 7, 2024 in Düsseldorf, Germany. To maintain the momentum until then, the organizers will offer “virtual.drupa”, a four-day digital event from April 20 – 23, 2021 during the time frame drupa was originally scheduled for.
“The pandemic has caused great uncertainty among exhibitors and visitors regarding participation in drupa 2021. Travel restrictions and budget pressure have increasingly intensified the situation in the print industry,” explained Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf. “We have made this decision together with our partners who support this step. It was preceded by a detailed process of considering the current conditions and the needs of the industry.”
