“We see a significant opportunity to unlock value by allowing these three businesses to pursue their own strategies and invest according to the unique dynamics of their respective industries,” says President and CEO Thomas Quinlan III.

FinancialCo, built of subsidiaries Bowne Financial and Edgar Online, will provide content management, multichannel content distribution, data management and analytics, collaborative workflow, and business reporting tools and translation services.

PRSCo will prepare, produce, and distribute periodicals, catalogs, inserts, books, office products, and directories.

According to a release, the restructuring is expected to be completed by the end of 2016. Existing RR Donnelley shareholders will ultimately own shares in all three companies.
