 HISTORY

 A Family Business Gets Underway

Paxar Corporation has a long, rich history of growth, innovation and timely response to industry trends. While the company has divisions dating back as far as the late 1800’s, the central Paxar story begins in 1918 with the launch of Meyer Tag and Label Company in New York City. Paxar’s founder, Leon Hershaft, a young immigrant from Europe worked at Meyer Tag and Label as a pressman. The company grew to become a well-respected business, and Leon was appointed General Manager. His brother Fred also joined the company, and in the 1940s, the two brothers bought the company. Other family members joined the business, including Arthur Hershaft, Leon’s oldest son who served as Paxar’s Chairman of the Board from 1986 to December 2006.
During the 1960’s, as more and more retailers began to adopt self-service product packaging, Paxar began a secondary, carded visual packaging business in response. In 1969, it changed its name to Packaging Systems Corporation and became a publicly held company.

Innovation Leads to Growth

The manufacture of apparel tags and labels continued to prosper. This was in part driven by changes in textile legislation, which required clothing to be labeled with fiber content and care instructions. The opportunities for further growth were evident, and the company began working on a revolutionary, high-speed printing technique that would help label manufacturers effectively comply. In 1971, Paxar introduced its first patented printing system called Fasco™, which increased label printing output dramatically. Importantly, this new technology positioned the company to become the dominant printed label supplier to apparel manufacturers in the United States.

As other countries passed similar labeling laws, Paxar’s Fasco technology was licensed to printing companies in Europe, Asia and Africa. Not long after, the company engineered a hot stamp printing system incorporating the new technology. This breakthrough promised even greater efficiencies for apparel manufacturers, who would benefit from printing labels as needed in their own facilities.

 Acquisitions Expand Product Breadth and Global Reach

In 1987, an important strategic decision was made to alter the company’s business course. The carded visual packaging division was sold and resources were reallocated to growing the company’s tag and label business. At this time also, the company’s name was changed to PaxarCorporation.
Following this important milestone, Paxar opened its first European operations in England, Germany and Italy and an era of rapid growth ensued worldwide as the company sought to position itself as the vendor of choice for apparel companies and retailers. Over the next 17 years, businesses were acquired and companies established in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Latin America  and North America.
Paxar’s product and service offering also expanded to include woven labels, bar code products, graphic tags, soft apparel labeling, including transfers, and more. New electronic printing systems were engineered such as the high-performance Monarch series of bar code printers and a ground breaking apparel labeling system called LOKPRINT. Just-in-time delivery options were enhanced; online services were introduced; and niche-retail labeling opportunities explored in areas as diverse as security labeling and food safety management.

Adding Value for Its Customers

Today, the company delivers a broad range of products and services. For example, its comprehensive offering of printers, software and supplies places Paxar at the forefront of helping customers utilize RFID technology. Simultaneously, the company is dedicated to helping its customers develop viable, distinctive brands through the design and manufacture of a full complement of merchandising products.

While its footprint has grown considerably, Paxar’s reason for being in business remains the same. This 88-year old company with revenues of $809 million in 2005 remains focused on fully servicing its customers wherever in the world they may be.

AVERY DENNISON COMPLETES ACQUISITION OF PAXAR

Pasadena, Calif. –June 15, 2007 — Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE: AVY) announced that it completed its acquisition of Paxar Corporation today following the approval of the transaction by Paxar’s shareholders at its Annual Meeting on June 14, 2007.

“This acquisition will strengthen a dynamic and important part of our business,” said Dean Scarborough, president and chief executive officer of Avery Dennison. “The combination with Paxar expands our presence in the growing retail and brand identification market, enabling us to provide better products and services to our customers and allowing us to more quickly tap into new segments of the market — including retailers serving local customers in emerging markets such as China and India.”
On March 22, 2007, Avery Dennison announced a definitive agreement to acquire Paxar for $30.50 per share in a cash transaction valued at approximately $1.34 billion.
With the acquisition of Paxar, Avery Dennison’s Retail Information Services (RIS) business is expected to represent about 24 percent of Avery Dennison’s revenues – up from 12 percent before the combination. Paxar reported sales last year of $881 million. Avery Dennison said it will provide additional information on the anticipated financial benefits of the transaction, including expected sources and timing of cost synergies, during its regularly scheduled quarterly earnings release on July 24, 2007.
Rob van der Merwe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Paxar Corporation, announced that he will be leaving following the close of the transaction. Terry L. Hemmelgarn, newly named group vice president of Retail Information Services, will head the combined RIS Group. Hemmelgarn’s management team will consist of members of both Paxar’s and RIS’ leadership groups.
The purchase of Paxar has been initially funded through the commercial paper market, supported by a bridge facility arranged by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. The Company remains committed to retaining a strong investment grade credit rating and to returning its financial ratios to target levels. The Company will work with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as arranger, and with the rating agencies to complete the permanent financing in the coming months.

 HISTORY OF AVERY DENNISON1935
An idea spawns a new business, industry
A promising new business is established in the midst of the Great Depression when young entrepreneur R. Stanton Avery manufactures the world’s first self-adhesive labels in a 100-square-foot rented loft space in Los Angeles. Marketing his labels under the name Kum Kleen Products, Avery improves his new product through innovation and determination. He develops the first die-cutting method, in-line machinery and rotary die for the manufacture of self-adhesive labels, the first synthetic-based pressure-sensitive adhesive and quick-release coated backing for self-adhesive products, the first systematic approach to label identification and pricing, and the first manual dispenser for self-adhesive labels. By the end of Avery Adhesives’ first decade, annual sales approach half a million dollars. Avery labels are a success.

1945
Avery sells to worldwide markets
New industrial uses for self-adhesive labels expand dramatically during World War II, fueling the Company’s rapid growth. Avery Adhesives establishes new customers abroad with the establishment of its first license holder, in England. An important strategic business direction is set for the Company with the creation of a new self-adhesive base materials business, Fasson, and the construction of the first base materials plant in Painesville, Ohio. By the end of its second decade, Avery Adhesives reports sales of $5 million.

1955
Avery gains operational, financial strength
The Company establishes its first overseas subsidiary, in the Netherlands. Now called Avery Adhesive Products, Inc., the Company divisionalizes its converting and base materials operations as Avery Label Company and Fasson Products. Avery Adhesives “goes public” through the sale of 250,000 shares of common stock and issues its first cash dividend in 1964. Meanwhile, capital expansion, by the third decade’s end, accounts for 15 plants in the United States and overseas, with sales reaching $40 million.

1965
Company acquires, develops superior technologies
By its fourth decade, the Company, Avery Products Corporation, continues to surge on all fronts. Important new self-adhesive products propel Avery into new markets, while intensive research in adhesive technologies and environmentally safe coating methods result in the start-up of many new production facilities around the world. With annual sales at $300 million, Avery Products is recognized in 1974 by its inclusion on the Fortune list of the 500 largest U.S. industrial corporations.

1975
Avery recognized as industry leader
The opening of new manufacturing facilities around the world continues unabated through the decade, as does the introduction of new, technologically superior adhesives. Major acquisitions extend the Company’s reach in office products and specialty chemicals, expanding its product lines and strengthening its market positions. Company headquarters moves to a new Corporate Center in Pasadena, California, as sales approach $1 billion.

1985
Worldwide opportunities spur growth
Strategic investments in capital programs result in new production facilities and state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment around the world, while advanced research and development in adhesive technology and materials science add important new proprietary products to the Company’s core business areas. In 1990, the Company becomes Avery Dennison through a major strategic merger, resulting in a substantially strengthened corporation with global leadership in office products, adhesives and materials and label converting technology.

1995
Avery Dennison moves toward global leadership

Avery Dennison significantly strengthens its international presence, moving aggressively into rapidly expanding consumer markets in developing economies in Asia Pacific, Latin America and Eastern Europe with innovative Fasson- and Avery-brand products that dramatically expand Avery Dennison’s original concept of a self-adhesive label. Accelerated opportunities develop from the ever-increasing use of computers, greater sophistication in information management and the proliferation of compelling graphics on packaging and consumer goods.

2000 to Present
Worldwide growth
In 2002, Avery Dennison acquired Jackstädt GmbH, RVL Packaging and L&E Packaging.
Avery Dennison had sales of $6.3 billion in 2007, and is ranked 382 on the 2007 Fortune 500 list of the largest U.S. corporations. Combined with Paxar, the Company’s latest acquisition, the Company now employs more than 30,000 individuals in over 60 countries worldwide who develop, manufacture and market a wide range of products for both consumer and industrial markets.
Products offered by Avery Dennison include: Fasson brand self-adhesive materials; Avery Dennison and Paxar brand products for the retail and apparel industries; Avery brand office products and graphics imaging media; specialty tapes, peel-and-stick postage stamps, and labels for a wide variety of automotive, industrial and durable goods applications.

 CODE OF BUSINESS ETHICS

INTRODUCTION

The Avery Dennison Code of Business Ethics establishes work-related standards of behavior for all Avery Dennison employees and applies equally to every one of our global business operations.  Avery Dennison employees are expected to use common sense and good judgment in applying the principles of this Code to ensure that its intent is fully carried out.

 Each employee has the responsibility to read, understand and comply with the letter and spirit of this Code.  Furthermore, the Company requires each employee is responsible for reporting any incident that appears to be in violation of this Code.  To report noncompliance or ask questions concerning this Code, you may do so through normal reporting channels; to a division hot-line, if one is available. There will be no retaliation taken against any employee as a result of reporting any perceived noncompliance with this Code.

Infractions by employees of the standards contained in this Code, or retaliation by any employee against anyone who reports a violation of this Code, will be subject to disciplinary action that may include a formal warning, reprimand, probation, reduction in compensation, demotion, suspension or dismissal — as deemed appropriate in the sole discretion of the Company.  In certain circumstances, as determined by the General Counsel, or when legally required, Avery Dennison will inform law enforcement officials of facts discovered by any investigation concerning noncompliance.

No code of conduct can ever encompass all forms of human behavior.  Avery Dennison Code of Business Ethics describes the basic ethical principles that should guide our business lives.  Employee must all follow these principles, and have the good sense and judgment to apply them in all of Avery Dennison business activities.  All of us share the responsibility to implement, execute and continually follow Avery Dennison Code of Business Ethics.

Responsibilities

 The Company is responsible for:

  • Complying with applicable government laws, rules and regulations
  • Distributing the Code of Business Ethics to all employees
  • Maintaining an ongoing ethics awareness program
  • Providing continuing counseling and guidance on appropriate business behavior, ethical matters and legal issues
  • Enforcing compliance with this Code of Business Ethics
  • Disclosing any waiver of this Code of Business Ethics (which waiver requires

prior approval of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors) to Company                                  shareholders.

Supervisors are responsible for:

  • Assuring that all current and new employees have received a copy of the Code of Business Ethics
  • Emphasizing to employees under their supervision the need for ethical behavior
  • Demonstrating ethical conduct by their personal action
  • Identifying areas in which special training may be needed

All employees are responsible for:

  • Reading and understanding the Code of Business Ethics and conducting themselves accordingly
  • Seeking assistance when the appropriate course of action is unclear or unknown
  • Remaining alert and sensitive to any actions that are in violation of this Code
  • Reporting violations through appropriate channels

Working Conditions and the Environment

The manager of each Avery Dennison facility is responsible to provide an environmentally safe workplace in our offices and factories and ensure that adequate procedures are being employed to safeguard our employees, the environment and our customers.

 The hours of each workday and the days worked each week shall not exceed the legal limitations of countries and jurisdictions in which Avery Dennison operates.  Avery Dennison will take all necessary steps to make certain that no involuntary or illegal labor will be used in the manufacture and distribution of Avery Dennison products.

 Avery Dennison is committed to the protection of the environment and the conservation of natural resources.  We comply with environmental laws and regulations wherever we do business for the benefit of the environment, the health and safety of our employees, our customers, and the communities in which we operate.  We will closely monitor our manufacturing, storage, treatment and disposition processes to ensure that Avery Dennison operations meet or exceed applicable standards for the benefit of the health and safety of our employees, our customers, and the communities in which we operate.

Confidential and Proprietary Information

 Avery Dennison values highly its confidential and proprietary information, whether protected by patents or the results of our manufacturing know-how.  Much of the work we do depends on the value of such information.  Our marketing objectives, customer lists, interim financial results, workforce and production plans, manufacturing techniques, software and new product development and the like are to be treated as confidential.  Unauthorized disclosure can destroy the value of such information.  Both present and former employees have a special responsibility to protect information to which they have been given access and to safeguard and monitor this information carefully.  All Avery Dennison confidential information in an employee’s possession, whether in electronic or printed format, must be returned to his or her manager upon termination of employment.

Conflict of Interest and Gifts

 A conflict of interest arises when an individual’s private interest is contrary to the Company’s interest and when that interest impedes the employee’s ability to act objectively and effectively.  It is essential that all employees avoid any situation or activity that might affect their judgment with respect to their responsibilities at Avery Dennison and their ability to properly perform their job.  Avery Dennison expects all employees to avoid any outside business or financial interests or activity that may interfere with their performance or may be contrary to Avery Dennison interests.  Having a material investment in, or a position with an enterprise that is a competitor, customer or supplier is an inherent conflict and is prohibited.  Loans or other personal benefits given to a Avery Dennison employee, or to a close friend or family of an employee, may impair the employee’s ability to act in the best interest of the Company.  For example, receipt of a gift from a supplier, whether in cash, property or services, may impair one’s ability to make a sound business decision.  Acceptance of any gift that is or could be construed to be a bribe is forbidden.  Thus, a gift, favor or entertainment may be given to or received from a supplier or a customer only when all of the following criteria are met:

  • It is consistent with established and customary business practices, such as paying the bill for a lunch with a customer;
  • It is of such limited value that the business courtesy cannot be construed as a bribe, influence payment or kickback.  An example would be accepting a calendar from a supplier that the supplier sends to all its customers annually;
  • It does not violate any applicable law or regulation, or the customer’s or supplier’s ethical practices.  An example would be providing a customer with tickets to a sports event where the customer’s code of business practices permits its employees to accept such offers;
  • It will not embarrass Avery Dennison or the employee if publicly disclosed, such as buying an advertisement in a charity journal sponsored by a customer.

Under no circumstances should a Avery Dennison employee responsible for recommending or purchasing goods or services maintain a personal relationship with a person who provides goods or services to Avery Dennison.  Common sense and good judgment must be applied in all such instances.

Books and Records

 All financial transactions and funds of the Company must be properly and adequately recorded on the books of the Company and supported by complete documentation in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and sound business practices.  The primary responsibility for Avery Dennison books of account and the custody of Avery Dennison bank deposits and accounts rests with the financial organizations of every unit.  Safeguards, such as limits on spending authorizations and the requirement for multiple signatures on checks above specified amounts, must also be in place and will be reviewed by Avery Dennison internal and independent auditors.  Every Avery Dennison employee, however, has an individual responsibility to make certain that every financial transaction is properly authorized and documented.

 Avery Dennison requires that all officers and directors comply with all disclosure requirements in order to assure that public reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission, the New York Stock Exchange, and similar entities are complete, accurate, timely and in full compliance with applicable standards and free of any misrepresentation.
