Checkpoint Systems, Inc. Announces Intent to Extend Filing Date of Annual Report

Checkpoint Systems, Inc. (NYSE: CKP) announced on March 6, 2014 that the Company is completing the review of its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2013.

The Company is working to resolve these matters including review by its independent registered public accounting firm and is currently unable to predict the length of time necessary to complete this review.
