PCM, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCMI) formerly PC Mall, Inc. (NASDAQ:MALL) announced
today that effective December 31, 2012, we have changed our legal
corporate name to PCM, Inc. from PC Mall, Inc. In connection with the
rebranding, effective January 2, 2013, our Common Stock commenced
trading on NASDAQ under the ticker PCMI and no longer trades under the
prior ticker of MALL.
In addition, effective December 31, 2012, we have combined our primary
commercial subsidiaries PC Mall Sales, Inc., Sarcom, Inc. and PC Mall
Services, Inc. into a single subsidiary. The combined subsidiary will
operate under the unified commercial brand PCM and will generally
include our SMB, MME and portions of our Corporate & Other segments.
Additionally, in connection with the rebranding, effective December 31,
2012, our PC Mall Gov, Inc. subsidiary changed its name to PCMG, Inc.
and will operate under the PCM-G brand.
Commenting on the changes, Frank Khulusi, PCM's Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer, said "Over the past several years, our company has
grown into an approximately $1.5 billion enterprise in part through our
acquisition and internal cultivation of different brands. We have
historically differentiated those brands primarily based on the identity
of the customers they serve. After careful examination of the trends
taking shape in the markets we serve, we determined that going forward,
our commercial customers can benefit from a more unified and streamlined
brand strategy. Accordingly, we have consolidated our commercial brands
and realigned our customer segments in an effort to realize significant
growth and to achieve a more efficient cost structure. We are very
excited about this evolution as we believe it wil lead to an improved
customer experience, operational synergies and benefits to all of our
stakeholders, leveraging a brand that better represents the technology
solutions provider we have become."
