Nazdar Acquires Lyson, Ltd.

Shawnee, KS - Nazdar, North America’s largest manufacturer of screen inks, digital inks, and chemicals, 
announces the acquisition of Lyson, Ltd., and its subsidiary, Lyson, Inc., a leading manufacturer of inkjet inks 
for digital printers. The Lyson brand and product line are now part of Nazdar’s Inks and Coatings Division,
based in Shawnee, Kansas.

Based in Stockport, UK, with a US subsidiary in Chicago, Illinois, Lyson supplies major OEM digital printer
manufacturers and end-users through an international network of distributors. The Lyson product line includes
digital inks for all major inkjet print technologies, including piezo, thermal, and CIJ. Lyson manufactures both
solvent and water based inks in pigment and dye formulations for markets such as industrial coding and
marking, office printing, wide format graphics, fine art, photography, proofing and grand format billboard printing.

"Nazdar is committed to the digital ink market," stated Mike Fox, President of Nazdar. "It’s an increasingly
important part of our core business. We’ve been manufacturing and marketing the NDI brand of digital inks
since 2000, and we know what it takes to deliver a top quality product. Lyson and Jeff Ball have done an
excellent job of establishing Lyson as one of the world’s premier providers of digital ink products. They have
an innovative history and have developed an excellent product line that enables Nazdar to achieve its
strategic initiative to expand outside of our traditional channels and presents us with new customer
opportunities. Bringing the two companies together will help both Lyson and Nazdar reach our goals for the
future. We’re extremely pleased to welcome Lyson to the Nazdar organization."

Fox went on to add, "We intend to maintain and build the Lyson brand, which has an outstanding reputation
for innovation, service and support. Our emphasis will be on continuing to develop and improve third-party
digital ink products while expanding our relationships in the OEM markets. Joining the resources of the two
companies increases our already considerable R&D expertise and will allow us to broaden our development
efforts in aqueous, solvent, and UV ink technologies."

Jeff Ball, Lyson’s founder, stated, "The acquisition is a great fit for both companies. It gives the Lyson brand
the resources necessary to further our penetration into the marketplace and to continue to research and
develop Lyson products at the very highest level. It gives Nazdar a larger product portfolio and an established
base in Europe which accelerates their international expansion objectives. We’re excited about the possibilities
and look forward to being part of the Nazdar organization."
