Dear Loyal Customer:
I am writing to share some fantastic news with you: Platinum Equity, a California-based private equity firm, has acquired Quark. This is a substantial step forward in the evolution of our business and one that we have been working toward for some time, because we know that it will provide new benefits to our customers and partners.
This transition comes at an exciting time for our company and our customers. Since I joined in 2006, we have made great strides in helping our customers realise dynamic publishing, have re-invigorated QuarkXPress, and have readied Quark to take an early leadership position in digital publishing.
As a global investment firm, Platinum Equity is well-positioned to help us continue to execute our dynamic publishing vision through their market reach, merger and acquisition experience, and operational support. Just as importantly, the firm shares Quark’s commitment to our customers. This is the natural next step in Quark’s evolution.
On behalf of the entire Quark team, I want to thank you once again for the relationship we have built and for your continued confidence in our capabilities. We look forward to earning that trust each and every day.
Should you have any questions at all, please e-mail us. We hope you’ll share the confidence and excitement that we have for this new chapter for Quark, our customers, and our partners.
Quark President and CEO
