Worldcolor Announces New Agreement to Print 21 Publications for ABA Publishing

MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwire - Oct. 8, 2009) - Worldcolor (TSX:WC)(TSX:WC.U) has signed a multi-year agreement to print 21 magazines, journals and newsletters for ABA Publishing, the publishing arm of the American Bar Association. The 21 titles represent new work to Worldcolor, which has printed the ABA's flagship magazine title - ABA Journal - for several years.

Some of the new titles in the agreement are Litigation, Business Law Today, Probate and Property, Student Lawyer and Construction Lawyer.

"We have printed ABA Journal with great pride and it is very gratifying when a valued customer expands our service relationship by awarding us additional titles," said Kevin J. Clarke, President of Worldcolor's Publishing Services Group. "We're also pleased to note that this new work reflects in part continuing investments we have made and are making in digital print and related digital asset management, as well as in innovative co-mail solutions that are driving more value to our publication customers."

John Rhead, Print Administration Director for ABA Publishing, said Worldcolor's specialty publication capabilities and commitment to innovation in print, digital and distribution technologies provided a compelling case for change: "We were very impressed with Worldcolor's focused solutions for our specialized publications. We have no doubt that the service success Worldcolor has demonstrated on ABA Journal will be mirrored in the production of these 21 additional titles."

To the extent any statements made in this press release contain information that is not historical, these statements are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and are forward-looking information within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provisions of applicable Canadian securities legislation (collectively "forward-looking statements"). These forward-looking statements relate to, among other things, prospects of the Company's (the "Company") industry and its objectives, goals, strategies, beliefs, intentions, plans, estimates, projections and outlook, and can generally be identified by the use of words such as "may," "will," "expect," "intend," "estimate," "anticipate," "plan," "foresee," "believe" or "continue" or the negatives of these terms, variations on them and other similar expressions. In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements. The Company has based these forward-looking statements on its current expectations about future events. Forward-looking statements do not take into account the effect of transactions or other items announced or occurring after the statements are made. For example, they do not include the effect of dispositions, acquisitions, other business transactions, asset write-downs or other charges announced or occurring after the forward-looking statements are made.

Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that these expectations will prove to have been correct, and forward-looking statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties, and undue reliance should not be placed on such statements. Certain material factors or assumptions are applied in making forward-looking statements, and actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements.

Important factors and assumptions as well as the Company's ability to anticipate and manage the risks associated therewith that could cause actual results to differ materially from these expectations are detailed from time to time in the Company's filings with the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and the securities regulatory authorities in Canada, available at www.sec.gov and www.sedar.com (copies of which are available on www.worldcolor.com). The Company cautions that any such list of important factors that could affect future results is not exhaustive. Investors and others should carefully consider the factors detailed from time to time in the Company's filings with the SEC and the securities regulatory authorities in Canada and other uncertainties and potential events when relying on its forward-looking statements to make decisions with respect to the Company.

Unless mentioned otherwise, the forward-looking statements in this press release reflect the Company's expectations as of October 8, 2009, being the date at which they have been approved, and are subject to change after this date. The Company expressly disclaims any obligation or intention to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless required by applicable securities laws.
