BLACK BOX® Catalog named 2004 Catalog of the Year!

Also wins its category for an unprecedented ninth year in a row.

Black Box Corporation (NASDAQ:BBOX) announced today that its 2003-2004 BLACK BOX® Catalog won the Catalog of the Year award in the Nineteenth Annual Catalog Awards competition hosted by Catalog Age magazine in Chicago. The Catalog of the Year tribute was in addition to a Gold award bestowed on the BLACK BOX® Catalog earlier in the ceremony for excellence in its category.

The awards, conferred as “tributes to catalog excellence,” mark the first time Black Box has earned the uppermost honor, Catalog of the Year. And it’s the ninth year in row that Black Box has been recognized with top honors in its category of Computer Equipment and Software.

The catalog was one of more than 200 entries in 27 categories and became one of 63 finalists. The awards are based on a point system given by a panel of judges, and the Catalog of the Year award recognizes the one catalog with the most points overall. The judging criteria encompasses areas that include cover, merchandising, creativity, services, and catalog effectiveness.

Black Box currently serves more than 150,000 clients around the world and has the largest footprint in the industry, serving every major sector.
