MailExpress Announces Proxy Mailing Solution Compliant With SEC Notice and Access Rule

Leading Expedited Mail Services Provider Positioned to Help Companies Exceed SEC Requirements

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - August 20, 2007) - MailExpress Inc. announced a technology enabled expedited mail solution that complies with the requirements of the new mandatory SEC Notice and Access rule. This service will allow the investor relations community to comply with the new rules, which become mandatory January 1, 2008 for large accelerated filers, or publicly held corporations with market capitalizations exceeding $700 million.

The mandatory Notice and Access Rule removes the requirement for public companies to automatically send shareholders a hard-copy set of proxy materials, by offering shareholders online access to the documents via the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials. Issuers opting for the Notice and Access model for electronic delivery will be required to mail requesting shareholders a hard copy of the proxy materials within three business days of the request. Hard copies must be sent via First-Class Mail® or other reasonably prompt means. MailExpress' expedited mail services provide nationwide delivery within an average of three days, consistent with First-Class Mail® standards. However, MailExpress offers additional benefits compared to other mailing alternatives:

--  Clients can reduce costs as MailExpress' solution costs less than
    First-Class postage;
--  Proof of compliance with SEC regulations is assured as MailExpress
    captures a digital image of each piece mailed; and,
--  Clients can accurately inform concerned shareholders as to the status
    of their mailing, as MailExpress scans each piece at the origin facility
    and again at the destination facility.

Educational Webinars for Notice and Access

MailExpress is planning meetings and online seminars for publicly held corporations, banks, brokers, transfer agents and the mutual fund community. The events will inform, clarify and provide guidance regarding best practices for complying with the mandatory Notice and Access Rule, while maximizing mailing savings. "We have invested substantially in technology and in expanding our distribution network in preparation for helping the investor relations community exceed these new requirements," said Bill Marrin, Vice President of Sales of MailExpress. "I believe that we are very well positioned to offer these firms best-of-class mailing solutions. By plugging into MailExpress, our clients can focus on their core competencies with complete confidence that they are in regulatory compliance."

Two-year-old MailExpress has quickly become the preferred choice for expedited mailing of mission-critical business correspondence. "Our founders invented the expedited mail industry in 1996," added Marrin. "The fact that we were able to start fresh in 2005 enabled us to develop state-of-the-art systems and distribution networks, without being burdened by legacy systems and infrastructure. We are thrilled with the acceptance that we have received from our customers and are very optimistic about the future."
