Report: Quebecor World to Become 'Novink'
Name change associated with emergence from Chapter 11.
Montreal-based magazine printer Quebecor World is expected to announce this weekâ€”possibly as early as todayâ€”that it is changing its name to Novink.
The company, according to Graphic Monthly Canadaâ€™s PrintCAN, applied for a trademark for "Novink" last July, and in May published the application in a Canadian trademarks journal.
A Quebecor spokesperson did not immediately return a request for comment.
The printer indicated it would change its name as part of the company's emergence from Chapter 11. In April, the company reached a $1.5 billion agreement with its creditors that it says will allow the company to emerge from bankruptcy protection this summer.
Last month, Quebecor World received a letter from fellow printer R.R. Donnelley expressing interest in purchasing Quebecor for roughly $1.35 billion. A vote on a response by Quebecorâ€™s board of directors is expected imminently.
A Quebecor creditorâ€™s meeting is scheduled for June 18.
