STAMFORD, Conn., Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cenveo, Inc. (NYSE: CVO) today announced that it has executed a letter of intent to sell its Custom Envelope Division ("CED") to Ennis, Inc. (NYSE: EBF), a manufacturer of printed business products & apparel, headquartered in Midlothian, Texas, for approximately $47.25 million in cash and the assumption of certain trade liabilities. The closing, which is expected to be on or before September 27, 2013, is subject to the completion of normal due diligence procedures and the consummation of a definitive purchase agreement between the two parties.
Cenveo's CED is comprised of the WISCO envelope brand, which is produced at a facility in Tullahoma, TN., and the National Imprint Corporation ("NIC") brand, which is produced at a facility in Claysburg, PA., which collectively generated approximately $40 million in sales in the previous fiscal year.

This divestiture allows Cenveo to focus on our direct and office product envelope businesses, our integration of National Envelope and our other core operations, including the label and packaging businesses.
