UNITED STATIONERS TO ACQUIRE CPO COMMERCE - May 2014

DEERFIELD, Ill. - May 29, 2014 - United Stationers (NASDAQ: USTR) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, United Stationers Supply Co., signed an agreement to acquire 100 percent of the outstanding shares of CPO Commerce, Inc., for an all cash purchase price of $30 million, with up to an additional $10 million to be paid in three years based on performance.

CPO is a leading e-retailer of brand name power tools and equipment with proficiency in building and managing high performing online businesses. This transaction significantly expands United’s digital resources and capabilities to support resellers as they transition to an increasingly online environment. CPO’s expertise will strengthen United’s ability to deliver such features as improved product content, real-time access to inventory and pricing, and digital marketing and merchandising. CPO also provides an enhanced digital platform to support United’s manufacturing partners.

CPO’s fiscal year 2013 sales were $78 million, with a sustained track record of double-digit annual growth. The acquisition is expected to be slightly dilutive to United’s earnings per share in its first full year as the company accelerates its digital strategy and investments. The transaction is expected to close on May 30 and is subject to customary closing conditions. United Stationers plans to fund this acquisition through a combination of cash on hand and cash available under its revolving credit facility.

“We are positioning United to be the premier supplier of business essentials with a focus on winning the shift to online selling. We have an expanding portfolio of e-commerce competencies and have invested in skilled leadership to grow our online business. We expect CPO’s e-commerce platform to provide new capabilities to allow us to drive digital services, engage our resellers through online tools, and enable their continued online success. This acquisition is the next step in executing our strategy, and I am pleased to welcome CPO’s associates as they become a part of our company,” commented P. Cody Phipps, United Stationers’ president and chief executive officer.

“We are excited to bring our e-commerce expertise to United Stationers and look forward to leveraging United’s strong operational capabilities to better serve our customers and brand partners. We are equally excited to be joining a company with an outstanding, purpose-driven culture,” commented Rob Tolleson, CPO’s founder and president.

CPO Commerce converts 46 e-commerce sites and all marketing emails to responsive design - November 2013

Pasadena, CA - November 2013 - CPO Commerce Inc. successfully converts 46 e-commerce sites and all marketing emails to responsive design. Completed in four months by CPO’s in-house tech and design teams, the initiative aims to optimize the shopping experience on mobile devices.

With today’s technology, shopping on mobile devices becomes more popular every year. So it’s no surprise that CPO’s major sites report that year-over-year traffic growth from mobile devices is outpacing growth from desktop computers. While other major retailers have turned to developing additional mobile specific websites, CPO chose to address present and future technology trends with responsive web design. As tablets get smaller and smart phones get larger, responsive design allows optimized viewing regardless of screen size, resolution or orientation of the device.

“I am extremely proud of our team’s successful conversion to responsive design,” said Rob Tolleson, CPO’s Founder and CEO. “The manner in which consumers are shopping is changing, and CPO intends to stay on top of these trends to deliver the best possible experience on our sites.”

Closing in on the holidays, the new optimized layout ensures that CPO is positioned well for the busiest shopping season of the year.

Wish Lists beat out Gift Cards this Holiday Season - November 15th, 2011

Wish Lists beat out Gift Cards this Holiday Season

Pasadena, CA – November 15th, 2011 --It happens every year. You received a gift and you know it’s going to be bad. Although the snowmen on the wrapping paper are smiling, there is no holiday joy in this occasion. You are getting another tie for Christmas. But, how can that be avoided this year?

Wish Lists vs. Gift Cards

Gift cards appear to be the obvious answer, but there is still an element of chance that could leave you with a gift card from a store you've never heard of or an amount that is too small to get what you wanted.

The real solution is wish lists. Like a wedding registry, wish lists are created by adding specific products to the user’s account for the gift givers to view. Wish lists are the best option for holiday gift buying because they allow the gift giver to see precisely what the gift receiver wants to receive. Wish Lists also reduce miscommunication between the gift giver and the gift receiver. So, someone on your list wants a drill. Is it an 18v or 12v? Is it a hammer or a compact driver? Is it a 3/8 or ½ chuck? And, do you even know the brand? With a wish list, all those questions can be avoided.

Maximize your Wish List with Reconditioned Tools

What’s better than getting everything you want this holiday season? Getting more of it! The best way to maximize your wish list is with reconditioned tools. Buying reconditioned tools means getting a like-new quality tool at a 20-30% savings, which means more tools for the same price. One of our customers told us, “My sister wanted a nail gun and a compressor for Christmas. I couldn't afford that. Then I discovered Reconditioned Tools. I was able to buy her both tools, and they looked like new.” Some shoppers hesitate to purchase a reconditioned tool as a gift because they are worried that the tool may be defective. Our reconditioned tools are inspected and restored by factory trained technicians and backed by a full manufacturer’s warranty. “We wouldn't be one of the most highly recommended sites on the web for reconditioned tools if that were so. D.I.Y forums are frequently referring their members to our site for the largest selection of tools in the best condition,” states Rob Tolleson, CEO of CPO Commerce, the company that operates ReconditionedTools.com.

Dreading another ugly tie? Take action. Create your wish list on ReconditionedTools.com and get what you really want this year, without breaking the piggy bank.

The second tool was fine. I feel I can buy risk free, and if there is a problem CPO will step up and make it right.”

In 2009, CPO launched ReconditionedTools.com, which has the largest selection of reconditioned tools in the United States, offering over 1,100 reconditioned tools from over thirty of the best known tool brands. Offering a savings of 20-30% on products that are as good as new, ReconditionedTools.com has attracted a loyal following of professional contractors who like getting a factory-reconditioned tool that offers a warranty and the same performance as a new tool. “Why buy new, when recon has the same warranty as new, with better prices?” “Never buy new again. CPO done "let the cat out the bag”. Refurb tools and CPO service is a one, two punch. I won’t shop anywhere else for my tools of any nature until after checking with them first!”

CPO’s CEO, Rob Tolleson commented, “With our expanded product offerings and our two stores: ReconditionedTools.com and TylerTool.com, we are looking forward to shipping our two millionth order much faster than our first.” It is evident from these customer testimonials that CPO Outlets will reach two million customer orders in the near future.
