Published on .

Chicago—R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co. announced that its $1.8 billion bid to acquire Quebecor World, which is in bankruptcy proceedings, has been rejected.

“We believe that our proposal was undoubtedly in the best interests of creditors based on a comparison of the distributions under our proposal with the distributions under the proposed stand-alone plan of reorganization,” Thomas J. Quinlan III, R.R. Donnelley’s president-CEO, said in a statement. R.R. Donnelley had increased its initial bid of $1.35 billion, made May 12, to $1.8 billion.
