MIKE DUDEK – Zygoquest Group To Speak at World Expo – Imaging Supplies Show Las Vegas August 24, 2005

Dudek of Zygoquest Group "seeking to unite” - will be speaking at World Expo 2005 – the Imaging Supplies Show at 3:00 p.m. on August 24, 2005 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas about his favorite topic – Mergers & Acquisitions – “How to Maximize the Value of your Business”.

World Expo is a premier show for members in the imaging supplies industry. Last year’s event had 300 exhibitors and 5,700 attendees from 110 countries.

Zygoquest is the leading advisor in the consolidation of the copier and printer industries as both sides seek strategic alliances and merger & acquisition partners.

The Copier, Printer and MFP industries are rapidly converging and consolidating:

  • Copier dealers are attacking, penetrating and capturing printer service revenue.
  • Printer dealers are pursuing copier placements, service and supply opportunities.
  • Both parties are colliding in the middle with cost-per copy programs on MFP’s.

While copier dealers realize outstanding margins from service agreements bundled with supplies, conversely, printer dealers attain substantial margins from supply agreements bundled with service. Distinctions between digital copiers, MFP’s (multi-functional products) and printers become more blurry with each product innovation. Industry players, large and small, will be squeezed top and bottom line if they do not: 1) adjust their internal business and marketing models; and, 2) identify external strategic partners to help seize these opportunities.
