CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LSC Communications (NYSE: LKSD) and United Business Mail (UBM) announced today that UBM has acquired LSC’s commingle business for $11.25 million in cash. The transaction includes LSC’s commingle facility located in Aurora, Illinois, which LSC acquired as part of the acquisition of RRD Print Logistics in July of 2018.

This transaction will enable LSC to continue to focus on our core print and logistics businesses, and the proceeds from this sale will be used to reduce debt.”
As part of the agreement, LSC Communications will continue to be the exclusive logistics services provider for all of UBM’s mail.
