Dispositions In 2015, the company sold its 50.1% interest in its Venezuelan operating entity. Seasonality Advertising and consumer spending trends affect demand in several of the end-markets served by the company. Historically, demand for printing of magazines, catalogs, retail inserts and books is higher in the second half of the year (year ended December 31, 2015) driven by increased advertising pages within magazines, and holiday volume in catalogs, retail inserts and books. Partially offsetting this pattern, demand for financial print and related services is stronger in the first half of the year due to annual compliance requirements. History R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company was founded in 1864.
