United Stationers Supply Co. (USSCO) will officially change its name to Essendant Co. effective June 1, 2015. While the change in our brand is a huge milestone, it represents more than just a name change. It represents the continued evolution of our strategic direction. We are expanding and diversifying our product portfolio, improving digital capabilities and strengthening our purpose-driven team. These changes strengthen our position as the fastest and most convenient solution for workplace essentials.

To help us ensure a smooth and easy transition to our new brand, there are a few actions required on your part, which are underlined below. You will need to update your supplier records to ‘Essendant Co’. Any contracts you previously signed with USSCO remain in effect and do not need to be amended.

- You will need to complete an updated Uniform Sales and Use Tax Certificate. A checklist for this process is attached. Please send all updated resale certificates by July 30 to resale@essendant.com or fax to 866-541-3917.

- We will continue our practice of selling our trade receivables to our receivables subsidiary, which is also changing its name to reflect our new brand. Effective June 1, United Stationers Receivables, LLC is changing its name to Essendant Receivables LLC. Please update the payee on your payables system to Essendant Receivables LLC. However, please be assured that any payments received after June 1 under the names United Stationers Supply Co. or United Stationers Receivables, LLC  (or any variation thereof) will continue to be accepted for a reasonable period of time.

- The taxpayer identification number for Essendant Receivables LLC is 36-4428313. A W-9 reflecting the new name along with this taxpayer identification number is attached.

- Copies of the legal documents that will cause the names of United Stationers Supply Co. and United Stationers Receivables, LLC to change on June 1 are available on
https://solutionscentral.essendant.com. If you need login credentials to access solutionscentral, please send a request to technicalsupport@essendant.com.

- While June 1 marks the official change to our legal entities, you will continue to see us migrate various branded touch points over the remainder of the year. You will continue to see the United Stationers brand and logo on things such as invoices, statements, credit memos, and system pages, etc. Many of these brand placements will not change until early fall.

I want to thank you for your business and we look forward to making this transition with you. You can learn more about our transformation by visiting our website www.essendant.com.

Thank you,
Harry Dochelli
