Wireless 4-in-1 Genesis S815 Printer Offers Flash Scan Technology For High-Speed Performance

Boca Raton, Fla. – Office Depot (NYSE: ODP), celebrating 25 years as a leading global provider of office supplies and services, today announced the availability of the Lexmark Genesis S815 printer at its retail store locations nationwide and online at www.officedepot.com.

Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Office Depot/Mobil 1 Chevrolet Impala in the NASCAR® Sprint® Cup Series™, is no stranger to high speeds and will help promote the new all-in-one printer with lightning-fast scanning at Daytona International Speedway this month. And he’ll even receive a little extra incentive to visit Victory Lane there, too.

Lexmark International, Inc. (NYSE: LXK), a leading global provider of imaging products, solutions and services, will donate $10,000 to the Tony Stewart Foundation to celebrate the launch of its Lexmark Genesis S815 printer, and if Stewart wins his Gatorade Duel qualifying race at Daytona (Thursday, February 17, 2 p.m. EST, SPEED), Lexmark will double that donation to $20,000.

“The Duels at Daytona are always exciting because the higher you finish, the better your starting spot is for the Daytona 500. But for this year’s Duel, I have a little added incentive knowing that the Tony Stewart Foundation could receive some extra funding if I win,” said Stewart, who has awarded almost $4 million to assist charitable initiatives through his foundation since 2003. “I am so proud to partner with companies like Office Depot and Lexmark that believe in Taking Care of Business by giving back to their communities and to those in need. As for the wager, the new Lexmark Genesis S815 printer is really fast, and in our business, speed counts.”

To further support the availability of the new Lexmark Genesis S815 printer through its NASCAR sponsorship, Office Depot will incorporate the printer into promotional flyers/coupons at its No. 14 Office Depot/Mobil 1 show car events and provide a printer for media members to utilize inside the Daytona International Speedway media center.
