EarthColor

Earth ColorIn February 1999, Integrated Graphics, Inc. ("IGI") was formed by MCP and seasoned executives of the printing industry through the acquisition of seven digital prepress and sheet-fed printing companies, five of which are located in the metropolitan New York City area. In March 2000 IGI merged with EarthColor Group, a rapidly growing full-service provider of prepress, sheet-fed, web-fed printing and bindery/finishing services, with operations in New York City, northern New Jersey and Florida. IGI/EarthColor's full range of services, reputation for quality and responsiveness, and state-of-the-art technology have enabled it to become the leading provider of high-quality graphic prepress and printing services in the metropolitan New York City region, the largest market for
such services in the world.

In September 2006, EarthColor was acquired by Allied Capital (NASDAQ: ALD),
a large, well-capitalized financial buyer.
