Matthews International Corporation : Matthews International Marks New Era With Launch of Refreshed Logo

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Matthews International
(NASDAQ:MATW) unveils a brand system that marks a new era for the
166-year-old company. The branding change reflects the evolution of the
company, as well as its vision for the future, while fully supporting its
strategy to integrate its business segments and functions into a "One
Matthews" organization.

This new visual architecture clearly defines the relationships between the
corporation and its businesses, as well as provides continuity among them.
The unified structure enhances Matthews' broader go-to-market strategy and
clearly demonstrates that it is bonded together as one enterprise.

"While we operate in different segments and diverse markets, the refresh of
our corporate image positions our company as strong and with a unified
purpose," explains Joseph Bartolacci, President and CEO of Matthews
International Corporation. "With the launch of our new visual architecture,
we state loud and clear that we are now a fully integrated branded house."

The new corporate identity is clean, fluid, engineered and bold, exhibiting
both the qualities of our product and the end-to-end experience we bring to
the market. Its color is a vibrant red, signifying the transformative growth
our company is experiencing.

The Memorialization segment logo and those of its sub-brands also boast new
looks, drawing significantly from the style of the corporation's new image.
The updated visage properly represents a growing business, following the
segment's acquisition of Aurora Casket Company in 2015.

Although their visual identities did not change, the SGK Brand Solutions and
Industrial segments, now promote their connection to Matthews International
with defined relationship tags, i.e. "Matthews Automation Solutions is a
Matthews International company." All segments, including Memorialization,
will utilize some form of this brand signature to reinforce brand association
and clarify each brand within Matthews.

"It is our spirit of collaboration and our ability to evolve that is critical
in reaching our goals," says Bartolacci. "Throughout our transformation, we
were and will continue to be guided by our shared One Matthews vision and
values across segments, brands and geographies."

The new logos and brand structure will be implemented immediately across the
Matthews organization. For more information regarding Matthews
International's new brand architecture, please contact Corporate
Communications.
