    Katun Corporation Announces New European Core Return Program
    FRANKFURT,
    GERMANY — (FEB 2007) – Katun Corporation, the world’s leading
    alternative supplier to the office equipment industry, affirms its
    ongoing commitment to environmentally responsible business by
    announcing expansion of its Core Return Program scheduled for Spring
    2007. Katun’s expanded take-back policy will cover drum cartridges,
    toner cartridges and fuser units – extending Katun’s high level of
    service and support offerings, while ensuring the utmost attention to
    sound ecological business principles.Katun pioneered worldwide return
    programs over 20 years ago, establishing strict health and safety
    criteria for Katun products and facilities, well in advance of current
    environmental regulations in the industry.”Do the right thing” is one
    of Katun’s ethical principles that also addresses our relationships
    with customers, suppliers, and vendors. It also applies to our local
    and global communities, especially in the safety of our products and
    how we treat the environment,” states Karl Cerny, senior vice president
    & general manager of Katun’s EAME (Europe/Africa/Middle East)
    business unit. “Katun is committed to ongoing innovations that respect
    the environment, while delivering solutions that provide the maximum
    level of quality and performance to customers.”Katun has chosen to be a
    trendsetter in the office equipment sector, adopting European
    environmental directives policies that competitors may avoid or ignore.
    For example, Katun is fully compliant with European Directive
    2002/95/EC (RoHS).When Katun voluntarily assessed its range of product
    offerings, only two non-compliant parts were discovered, and they are
    no longer being sold. Katun’s policy is that it is in the best interest
    of its customers to proactively ensure that all of its products meet
    RoHS requirements.

    Consumables and materials used for the
    copying and printing process, such as toner cartridges, are not
    classified as dangerous substances. Currently there is no law in Europe
    that requires suppliers to take back these materials. However, Katun
    encourages customers to return used remanufacturable cartridges and has
    established a buy-back program. Katun’s quality-driven cartridge return
    program delivers added customer service, while effectively reducing the
    amount of waste sent to European landfills.Katun’s commitment to
    quality ensures top product performance and efficient operation,
    eliminating unnecessary waste and defective product returns. Katun’s
    Research and Development testing facility is at the very core of the
    company’s Performance brand commitment to provide customers with
    OEM-equivalent products. Katun’s team of over 100 chemists, engineers,
    technical operators, and other specialists worldwide thoroughly test
    Katun products against the equivalent OEM product using a series of
    detailed scientific tests. Select Katun toner cartridges have been
    yield-tested according to ISO standards and each has demonstrated
    yields equal to or better than the stated yields of both OEM and
    aftermarket competitors. All Katun Performance toner products have been
    tested to Katun’s own standards – which are even more stringent than
    ISO standards – and have proven to provide OEM-equivalent or better
    yields as well.Presently Katun is in the application process to receive
    special ecological certifications for its toner cartridges in Germany
    and in Scandinavia. These international standards require products to
    meet stringent environmental criteria based on manufacturing, no use of
    hazardous materials, packaging and emissions, among others.
