Valassis Increases Local Market Presence with Arizona Area Acquisition

Clipper Market Place Arizona Joins Valassis as Part of Local Solutions Strategy

LIVONIA, Mich., Oct. 6, 2016: Valassis, a leader in intelligent media delivery, announced today that Clipper Market Place Arizona will join Local Flavor, the Valassis-owned shared mail brand. Clipper Market Place Arizona is a private direct mail company owned by newspaper group 1013 Communications, LLC. In Arizona, Clipper Market Place reaches approximately 750,000 households 12 times per year.

“This acquisition enables us to expand our collective Local Flavor and Clipper Market Place AZ distribution in the Phoenix market while increasing frequency,” said Wayne Powers, Valassis chief revenue and operating officer. “We are excited to continue to grow the value we offer our small and medium business clients and merchants through the relevant, local offers we deliver to consumers.”
