Company Improves Annual Agency Company Ranking to No. 15

SUSSEX, Wis., May 10, 2021 — Quad/Graphics, Inc. (NYSE: QUAD) (“Quad” or the “Company”), has been named one of the Top 25 agency companies and Top 25 consolidated agency networks by Ad Age, the global publisher of news, analysis and data on marketing and media. The 2021 rankings reflect 2020 U.S. and worldwide revenue in multiple agency services categories including traditional advertising, digital and direct marketing.

Quad placed No. 15 on the list of world’s largest agency companies, and No. 22 among the world’s largest consolidated agency networks. Quad’s network includes Periscope, a fully integrated creative agency, and Rise Interactive, a full-service digital marketing agency, both of which are wholly owned by Quad and are part of the Company’s comprehensive agency services.

In last year’s Ad Age rankings, Quad ranked No. 16 on the list of top agency companies and No. 21 of the largest consolidated agency networks.

“Even in the tough market of 2020, we continued to see Quad’s unique integrated marketing platform gain acceptance in the marketplace and push Quad up the rankings,” said Eric Ashworth, Quad Executive Vice President of Product & Market Strategy and President of Quad Agency Solutions. “The simplicity of our integrated platform allowed us to move quickly to solve clients’ rapidly changing needs and leverage new opportunities that the market presented. As the economy strengthens, we will continue to help brands and marketers take advantage of our platform’s nimbleness to grow revenue and segment share.”
