Joel Quadracci, Chairman, President & CEO of Quad, said: “This quarter’s results, which include a sixth consecutive quarter of Net Sales growth, exhibit the effectiveness of our business strategy as we have transformed into a marketing experience, or MX, company. The world’s best brands increasingly recognize the unique value we provide through our holistic, multichannel, through-the-line marketing solutions. As an MX company, we guide brands through every effort intended to drive an action, from consumer awareness and trust, to brand preference and
purchase. We will continue to strategically invest in our platform to give our clients a more streamlined, flexible and frictionless way to go to market and reach consumers while enhancing our competitive position to drive profitable growth.

“As a result of investments we made in the first half of the year, we are able to deliver industry-leading client service, and drive sales and profitability higher during our seasonally busier second half of the year. Additionally, our team continues to work diligently to mitigate the impacts of persisting macro-economic headwinds, such as cost inflation and supply chain constraints that impact productivity. This includes implementing inflation-offsetting price increases, the next of which will be effective January 1, 2023.
