ORLANDO, FL – May 31, 2013 - Datamax-O’Neil, a global provider of label and
receipt printing solutions, has acquired the thermal printer assets of Source
Technologies, a leading provider in specialized printing solutions based in
Charlotte, North Carolina. Established in 1986, Source Technologies has
specialized in secure MICR printing solutions, and will remain a strong entity in this
market under new ownership. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“The addition of these new products into our already strong stationary printer
portfolio positions us and our channel partners around the world to be more
competitive and achieve greater market share,” said Paul Sindoni, president of
Datamax-O’Neil. “This acquisition represents another step in our strategy to
position ourselves as a global market and technology leader and clearly reflects
our continued commitment to grow our strength within the industry and our partner

Source Technologies thermal printer assets will be fully integrated into Datamax-
O’Neil over a two-month period, and the printers will be marketed under the
Datamax-O’Neil brand. Source Technologies’ Florida-based engineering team will
be transferred to Datamax-O’Neil’s Orlando, FL operations.

The state-of-the-art printers represent over three years of intense research and
development with considerable company investment and resulted in 12 provisional
patents. All ST Performance series printers are designed to use PCL5e, an
industry standard printer language, which alleviates integration difficulties often
caused by proprietary languages. The printers are easy to use, and offer reliability
and performance at an affordable price.
