MCLEAN, Va. -- November 20, 2012

Lexington Technology Group, Inc. announced today that seasoned technology and
IP executive Jeff Ronaldi will become the company’s chief executive officer
effective November 9, 2012. Ronaldi, who is currently a Lexington board
advisor, would also become CEO of DSS, Inc. (NYSE MKT: DSS) upon completion of
its pending merger with Lexington, expected in early 2013. Lexington’s current
CEO, Will Rosellini, will step down effective November 9, 2012 and remain an
advisor to Lexington’s wholly owned subsidiary Bascom Research.

“LTG is a platform for proven managers, and Jeff has been a part of the team
from the start, previously serving as a member of our advisory board,” says
Lexington Chief Operating Officer Peter Hardigan. “We’re very pleased that he
now has the opportunity to lead the company, as he brings an unparalleled
combination of general management and patent monetization experience to the
CEO role. Jeff’s experience at trial is integral to our success and his
network, reputation, resources and access to deal flow are invaluable. We
believe that this is a big win for both LTG and, if the merger is completed,
for DSS shareholders.”

Over the past two decades, Ronaldi has realized more than $160 million in
return for $12 million in patent investments. Most recently he was CEO of
Turtle Bay Technologies, Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Juridica
Capital.In 2012, he was behind two successful patent verdicts:Shelbyzyme’s
$50 million verdict against Genzyme and a $20 million willful infringement
verdict against Citrix Systems Inc.Previously he managed a venture capital
group within the Fortune 500-company SPX Corp., where among other investments
he managed patent infringement litigation against Microsoft Inc. that resulted
in a $62.3 million verdict and ultimately settled for $60 million.

During the 1990s, Ronaldi managed a number of technology startup and
fast-growth companies. He helped UUNET (now Verizon) go public and was
instrumental in highly successful product development for the company. He took
a division of Concentric Network (now XO Communications) from its launch to a
90-employee, $150 million run rate in 18 months, ultimately taking that
company public as well.

“In many ways, leading Lexington is a perfect opportunity to leverage the two
phases of my career: leading technology startups and monetizing IP,” Ronaldi
says. “One of the things that attracted me to Lexington is the quality of the
portfolio. I’ve been monetizing patents for more than 10 years and I’ve had a
lot of success. I expect this portfolio to be every bit as successful as any
of the others I’ve managed.”

Lexington’s current CEO, Will Rosellini will remain as an advisor to
Lexington’s Bascom Research subsidiary and will continue to support ongoing
R&D for Bascom Research’s development of electronic medical records in
collaboration with MedNest.

“I believe the Lexington model offers an incredible opportunity to catalyze
technology development through the use of patent monetization,” Rosellini
says. “As a technologist first and foremost, I look forward to working with
the team on development opportunities including the great work we are doing
with Bascom Research.”

With Ronaldi’s appointment, Lexington will be headquartered in McLean,
Virginia, where Lexington’s subsidiary Bascom Research is already based. After
completion of the DSS merger, Lexington Technology Group will become that
company’s intellectual property division.

Ronaldi’s appointment as CEO will be discussed during DSS’s earnings call on
Tuesday November 20. During the call, DSS will also provide an update on its
pending merger with Lexington Technology Group, Inc. (“Lexington”), which it
announced on October 2, 2012.
