American TonerServ Senior Executive Discusses Keys to Successful Mergers and Acquisitions

SANTA ROSA, CA--(Marketwire - March 13, 2008) - American TonerServ Corp. (OTCBB: ASVP) announced that Senior Vice President Andrew Beaurline yesterday provided his perspectives on corporate combinations before an audience of investment professionals in Millbrae, California. Incremental Advantage's "Mergers & Acquisitions Due Diligence Conference" provided the forum for Mr. Beaurline to review valuing and structuring deals, based on his expertise in mergers and acquisitions.

"Successful acquisitions occur when quality targets are attracted by real advantages offered by a strong buyer. At American TonerServ, we appeal to independent printer supply and service companies by offering buying power, best practices and enhanced logistics that provide them the ability to focus on growing their geographic reach and building customer relationships," he said. "Our pre-acquisition valuation and due diligence program includes key steps, allowing both parties to quickly focus on integration and building synergies together."
