LEXINGTON, Ky., Jan. 2, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Lexmark International, Inc.
(NYSE: LXK) today announced the acquisition of Acuo Technologies, LLC, a
recognized leader in high performance software and services for clinical
content management, data migration and vendor neutral archives (VNA), for a
cash purchase price of approximately $45 million. Acuo Technologies will
become a part of Perceptive Software, a Lexmark company.

Acuo Technologies, when combined with Lexmark's Perceptive Software healthcare
software solutions, will enable customers to deploy a single, enterprise-wide
access platform for clinical content via any electronic medical record (EMR)
system.

Acuo Technologies' Universal Clinical Platform (UCP) is a vendor neutral
foundation that drives better care delivery through a patient-centric approach
by consolidating medical images.

Acuo Technologies' offerings include a single integration point for all
medical imaging assets, lowering costs and risks through the UCP's ability to
work with different systems – enabling flexibility and efficiency across users
and departments.

Many national governments, university medical centers, and urban and regional
acute care centers and companies use Acuo Technologies' software and services,
primarily in North America and Europe.

Together, Perceptive Software and Acuo Technologies will offer a unique set of
technologies to the healthcare sector—enterprise content management (ECM), VNA
with clinical content viewing, and database conversion—that combine to manage
the entire range of content within the healthcare enterprise. With this
acquisition, Perceptive Software becomes the only vendor to own this
technology in order to provide this powerful healthcare solution, driving
better patient care, an enhanced clinician experience and cost savings through
a single, enterprise-wide and content-based medical record that is accessible
via any EMR system.

Lexmark retains a strong liquidity position with a long history of cash
generation.

This acquisition illustrates Lexmark's consistent execution of the company's
stated capital allocation framework. Lexmark's capital allocation framework is
to pursue acquisitions that support growth and increase software and solutions
capabilities, while returning more than 50 percent of free cash flow to
shareholders, on average, through quarterly dividends and share repurchases.
Since mid-2011, Lexmark has returned to shareholders more than $500 million in
the form of dividends and share repurchases.

"With the acquisition of Acuo Technologies, Lexmark is further strengthening
and differentiating our industry-leading healthcare offerings as the
healthcare IT market continues to expand at a rapid pace," said Paul Rooke,
Lexmark's chairman and chief executive officer. "The four acquisitions we've
completed in 2012 showcase Lexmark's transition to being a key solutions
provider to enterprise-sized businesses and organizations across the globe."

"Perceptive Software's rich process and content solution combined with Acuo
Technologies' Universal Clinical Platform will provide users a single,
enterprise-wide view of all patient medical information from within the EMR
system," said Scott Coons, Perceptive Software president and chief executive
officer and Lexmark vice president. "Physicians will have immediate access to
all patient information—from prescriptions to x-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans
and more—from directly within the EMR, regardless of the department in which
it was conducted or the technology used to create and store it.

"This data is then presented in the context of the patient, so when the
physician pulls up a patient record in the EMR, all clinical content living
outside that record is presented," added Coons. "This immediate, broad view of
the patient drives both efficiencies and better patient care. Presenting this
powerful content-based medical record in one solution will be unique to the
market."

"Combining Acuo Technologies' clinical content solutions with Perceptive
Software's content and process expertise allows us to offer healthcare
customers more compelling end-to-end solutions that integrate and manage both
medical image and document-centric patient information, all integrated with
the EMR," said Jeff Timbrook, Acuo Technologies chief executive officer. "We
look forward to presenting this broad offering to existing Acuo Technologies,
Perceptive Software and Lexmark healthcare customers."
