Joel Quadracci, Chairman, President & CEO of Quad, said: “Our continued positive sales growth momentum included print segment share gains from new clients and Net Sales growth in our Targeted Print and Agency Solutions offerings. Our unique platform helps brands reimagine their marketing experience to be more streamlined, impactful, flexible and frictionless. We will continue to make investments in the platform, including in our talent, equipment, technology, products and services, to further expand our through-the-line marketing offering to drive profitable growth.

“We were also not immune to macro-economic headwinds, including ongoing supply chain disruptions that impacted productivity and cost inflation, such as labor. We continue to work diligently to mitigate these impacts and, given the pace of inflation, implemented an additional price increase, which will go into effect May 15.

“As always, we remain focused on enhancing Quad’s financial strength and creating shareholder value and, to that end, will continue to prioritize growth while improving productivity and reducing debt during 2022. As a company committed to creating ‘a better way,’ we will continue to leverage our more than 50-year heritage of platform excellence, innovation and strong culture and social purpose to create a better, more purposeful and sustainable way forward for all our stakeholders.”
