Quebecor Inc.: Clarification Regarding Metro-Richelieu Inc.

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 27, 2011) - In a press release issued yesterday by Quebecor Inc. (TSX:QBR.A)(TSX:QBR.B)("Quebecor"), the following was mentioned:

"Pooling of sales forces at the national level and capital expenditures plan in the News Media segment in order to increase revenue streams; new contracts signed with Jean Coutu Group (PJC) Inc., Michael Rossy Ltd., Golf Town, Metro-Richelieu Inc. and PepsiCo."

Quebecor wishes to clarify that it is not with Métro-Richelieu Inc. that the News Media Segment had its dealings, but rather with Métro Ontario Inc. Sun Media Corporation, a subsidiary of Quebecor Media Inc. which already distributed the flyers of Métro and Food basics in certain territories in Ontario, was awarded the distribution of these flyers in additional territories in Ontario by Métro Ontario Inc. during the first quarter of 2011.

We are sorry for any confusion that may have resulted from this misunderstanding.
