The ONLY way I see the sale being approved is if the distribution platform of LSC is excluded. Combining Quad's and LSC's mailing capabilities would give Quad a stranglehold on how printers get their magazines and catalogs mailed and what they have to pay to do so. Consumers would suffer from the increased charges so DOJ will not approve the sale as it is currently structured. If/when the sale goes through, rest assured that all the LSC plants with outdated and worn-out equipment will be shuttered. Quad stays on the cutting edge of technology and is not about to let LSC's antiquated equipment serve as an anchor around their neck. Just one retired printer's opinion.
