    billion), today announced a series of actions to capitalize on the
    opportunities provided by its recent acquisition of Imagistics
    International Inc.
    Actions Taken…
    • Establishes Océ Imagistics organization to focus on Office and Digital Printing Centers
    • Elects Marc C. Breslawsky to Board of Directors of Océ USA Holding Inc.
    • Appoints Joseph D. Skrzypczak as President & CEO of Océ Imagistics
    Organization
    Oce Imagistics
    Effective
    January 1, 2006, Océ will establish Océ Imagistics, a new division that
    combines the office business of Imagistics International with the
    office and Digital Printing Centers (DPCs) business of Océ North
    America’s Digital Document Systems (DDS) division. Océ Imagistics will
    have annual revenues in excess of $700 million. The other operations of
    DDS, based in Boca Raton, Florida, will focus on the high-speed
    production and transaction printing, variable data and publishing needs
    of digital print providers and customers in graphic arts, direct mail
    and corporate IT centers.
    Jan Dix, member of the Board of Executive
    Directors of Océ N.V. and President and Chief Executive Officer of Océ
    USA Holding Inc., stated, “The establishment of Océ Imagistics will
    bring the best and broadest product line in the industry to the market
    with a highly focused sales organization. With approximately 1,300
    dedicated sales representatives supported by a world class service
    organization, we are able to focus on opportunities in the networked
    office, large corporate and government Digital Printing Centers,
    commercial printing, and high-speed production printing markets. This
    is in addition to Océ North America’s existing sales efforts in the
    large format printing and outsourced document process management
    markets.”
    The team responsible for integrating Imagistics into the
    Océ family carefully assessed the market opportunities and identified
    the optimum organizational structure and leadership. A number of other
    integration efforts are in progress including rationalization of IT
    systems, field office locations, financial reporting, and back office
    support.
    Appointments
    Marc C. Breslawsky, formerly Chairman and
    Chief Executive Officer of Océ Imagistics, has retired from the
    day-to-day leadership of the company. Mr. Breslawsky will continue as a
    member of the board of directors of Océ USA Holding Inc. and as an
    advisor to the Océ family of companies on a long-term basis.
    After
    careful consideration all parties concluded that the contribution of
    Mr. Breslawsky to a successful integration of Imagistics and further
    development of Océ’s business in the United States will be better
    served by a longer term, dedicated role in the Board of Océ-USA Holding
    Inc. instead of being a member of the Executive Board of Océ N.V. with
    the full scope of corporate responsibilities.
    Joseph D. Skrzypczak,
    previously President and Chief Operating Officer of Océ Imagistics, has
    assumed the responsibility of President and Chief Executive Officer of
    Océ Imagistics effective December 1, 2005. Mr. Skrzypczak joined Pitney
    Bowes in 1981 and held increasingly responsible positions in finance
    and operations. He served as Chief Operating Officer of Dictaphone
    Corporation, which was spun-off from Pitney Bowes in 1995. He joined
    Imagistics in 2001 and was responsible for executing the company’s
    successful business strategy, which resulted in earnings growth in
    excess of 20 percent annually.
    Jan Dix, member of the Board of
    Executive Directors of Océ N.V. will remain President and CEO of Océ
    USA Holding Inc., responsible for all Océ activities in North America.
    Mr.
    Rokus van Iperen, Océ N.V. CEO and Chairman, commented, “Marc
    Breslawsky has had a distinguished career in the office products
    industry. Under his skilled leadership, Imagistics evolved into a
    highly successful company and we expect to continue to receive the
    benefits of his experience as a consultant. I am excited about the
    tremendous growth prospects of the Océ family of companies and I am
    confident in the proven leadership abilities of Jan Dix at Océ North
    America and Joe Skrzypczak at Océ Imagistics.”
    Océ Imagistics
    Through
    the aforementioned organization, Océ Imagistics will expand its focus
    into the high-volume DPCs of large corporate and government customers.
    The company is establishing a dedicated sales and marketing group to
    serve the high-volume DPC market segment.
    Nick Klitsie, currently
    the Business Manager of Océ Wide Format Printing Systems in the UK,
    will lead this new group from the Océ Imagistics offices in Trumbull,
    Connecticut as Vice President and Business Group Manager DPC. Mr.
    Klitsie joined Océ in 1986 and his career has included positions of
    increasing responsibility in the marketing and business management of
    office, wide format, and high-speed printing systems. His experience
    includes tours of duty at the Océ International Headquarters in Venlo,
    The Netherlands, and the Océ Far East operations in Singapore.
    Having
    the high volume sales and marketing functions reside within Océ
    Imagistics greatly enhances the company’s strategic thrust to leverage
    the customer base and sales and service organizations of Océ and
    Imagistics, providing a robust capability to refer customers and cross
    sell services.
