Rochester, New York, UNITED STATES


ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Document Security Systems, Inc. (“DSS” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: DSS), a multinational company operating business segments in blockchain security, direct marketing, healthcare, consumer packaging, real estate, renewable energy, and securitized digital assets, today announced it is changing its name to DSS, Inc. The name change will become effective on September 30, 2021.

“Over the past two years, we have undergone sweeping change to our organizational structure, operating companies, and business plan,” stated Frank D. Heuszel, CEO of DSS. “Today, document security products and services represent only a small fraction of our operations and continuing to operate under the Document Security Systems brand obfuscates the multiple high-growth business lines we have added, including healthcare, real estate, renewable energy, and securitized digital asset initiatives. We are excited to move forward under the new DSS, Inc. name to more accurately reflect our broad and increasingly diverse portfolio of current and future businesses.”

“We have already witnessed successful outcomes from our investments into existing key scalable business lines which are driving top- and bottom-line improvements. The progress we are seeing with our new business model and expansive strategy should significantly accelerate these trends in the quarters ahead as we work to build DSS into a global multinational powerhouse,” added Jason Grady, COO. “Our goal is to create and deliver long-term, sustainable shareholder value while simultaneously aligning resources to build a foundation for strategic high-growth opportunities. Through this rebranding, we believe we will be able to more clearly communicate our exciting and evolving story to our shareholders and the broader investment community.”
