(TSX:TCL.A)(TSX:TCL.B)(TSX:TCL.PR.D) and Gesca Ltd. reached an agreement amending the terms and conditions of the contract to print the La Presse newspaper.

For its part, TC Transcontinental continues to be the exclusive printer of La Presse, maintaining ownership of the printing plant and equipment.
