SOMERVILLE, Mass. -- January 15, 2013

Grossman Marketing Group, a 103-year-old, fourth-generation family-run print
and promotional products company, announces the acquisition of ASAP, Inc., a
Norwalk, Connecticut firm specializing in promotional products for a wide
variety of businesses in the financial services, legal, education and consumer
products sectors. The company will be known as ASAP, a division of Grossman
Marketing Group.

This acquisition expands Grossman Marketing’s presence in Connecticut and New
York, adding to their already existing office in Hartford, established in the
mid-1970s.

“We believe that good people make good business and attract good customers, a
philosophy that has contributed to our sustained growth over the past century,
and we’re pleased to add ASAP’s employees to our staff,” said Ben Grossman,
Co-President of Grossman Marketing Group. “By leveraging Grossman Marketing
Group’s national brand expertise, award-winning design capabilities and
customized marketing solutions, we can offer ASAP’s client base an expanded
suite of services and a history of long-term customer relationships, making

Arden and a variety of businesses across the country.

“ASAP, Inc. has been a source of pride for both me and my team over the past
25 years,” said Sally de Vengoechea, former owner of ASAP. “When I decided to
explore retirement options and considered selling ASAP, I was fortunate to
find a company whose values and business practices were both compatible with
ours and very well-respected in the industry. Grossman Marketing Group
epitomizes loyalty and stability to both their clients and employees, and I
could not be more pleased with my decision to place ASAP, Inc. in their
hands.” Sally will continue on staff in an advisory capacity. In 2011, ASAP,
Inc.’s revenues totaled over $2 million.

“Customer satisfaction is our first priority at Grossman Marketing,” added Ben
Grossman, “and we look forward to working with ASAP’s staff to provide the
products and solutions that will grow their customers’ businesses and meet
their business targets.”
