Cinram International Enters Into Mobile Phone Fulfillment Services Agreement with Motorola



    TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - Cinram International Income Fund (TSX: CRW.UN)
today announced that its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, Cinram Wireless
LLC, has entered into a multi-year agreement with Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:   MOT),
a global leader in mobile communications and seamless mobility solutions, to
provide fulfillment services for mobile phones and accessories in North
America.
    "We are very excited about the opportunity to work with such a
well-respected company as Motorola to streamline, automate and add value to
their supply chain," said Cinram chief executive officer Dave Rubenstein.
    Under the agreement, Cinram will begin transitioning fulfillment
operations at Motorola's Fort Worth, Texas, facility in June 2007, and will
provide picking, packing, programming, packaging and reverse logistics for
Motorola mobile phones and accessories. Cinram will also transfer the existing
operations from Motorola's current facility to an expanded, custom-built
Cinram greenfield site in the Fort Worth area. Financial terms of the
agreement were not disclosed.
    "We looked at a number of third-party logistics providers and selected
Cinram because its world-class supply chain infrastructure is geared toward
meeting the complex and dynamic requirements of our industry," said Tim
Cawley, senior vice president of logistics for Motorola's Integrated Supply
Chain. "By consolidating our North America mobile handset supply chain
operations with Cinram, Motorola will be able to offer expanded,
state-of-the-art logistic services, bringing further value to our wireless
partners and customers."
    This fulfillment services agreement marks Cinram's entry into the
telecommunications industry. Cinram is already a leading provider of logistics
services in the theatrical home entertainment and video game industry,
reaching in excess of 240,000 points of distribution worldwide, making its
customers some of the best-rated suppliers to retail stores throughout North
America and Europe.
    "This agreement is an integral part of Cinram's long-term strategy of
leveraging our core competencies in other industries to diversify our
business," concluded Rubenstein.
