CHICAGO, July 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company (Nasdaq:RRD) today announced that it has been granted U.S. Patent 8,468,442, entitled "System and Method for Rendering Data," on June 18, 2013. The patent is a continuation of U.S. Patent 7,917,841, and relates to a method of parsing and viewing information associated with business and/or financial data. The patent extends a portfolio of patents obtained by RR Donnelley in the acquisition of EDGAR Online.

The patent protects methods used in RR Donnelley's disclosure management software, RRD ActiveDisclosuresm, which provides users greater efficiency in finance and investor relations, while offering a better path to create and manage disclosure reports. The RRD ActiveDisclosure solution offers filers greater control over the disclosure process, reducing time spent on document creation through the use of automated tools and integration with existing Microsoft Office productivity suite. The solution also gives filers access to a financial reporting expert at every step of the process, providing users confidence that eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) tags are accurate.

"RR Donnelley is dedicated to supporting our clients' need to assemble and disclose financial reporting information," commented Craig Clay, executive vice president of RR Donnelley's Financial Services Group. "This patent recognizes the technology driving our award-winning disclosure management software, RRD ActiveDisclosure, allowing our customers to speed up the process of tagging considerably, reducing the effort needed to meet the SEC's mandate for interactive data, and freeing them to focus on other business critical activities."
