GREENVILLE, SC - October 26, 2007 - Two ScanSource, Inc. {NASDAQ: SCSC} sales units, T2 Supply and Paracon, have joined forces to create ScanSource Communications. The new company encompasses T2 Supply’s industry-leading video conferencing and telephony products and Paracon’s high-quality communications products and services. Together, these companies will become a comprehensive value-added distributor of total communications solutions, including video and audio conferencing products; telephony solutions, including Voice over IP (VoIP); and computer telephony building blocks.

Through this alliance of two powerful value-added distributors, resellers will realize increased opportunities and efficiencies, such as access to additional communications solutions, new avenues for sales and technical support consultation, and expanded education and training opportunities on new products that can complement their current offering and help them grow their business.

“We are excited to bring together our teams, who not only have a great synergy and are extremely talented and laser-focused on growing our customers’ businesses but also have fun doing it!” said Jill Phillips, president of ScanSource Communications and former president of T2 Supply. “With our increased bandwidth and strengthened sales and business development teams, resellers will see a level of unmatched service and support. We are looking forward to a seamless transition with great opportunities for our customers.”

“As ScanSource Communications, we will continue to provide the outstanding products, efficiency and service our reseller partners have come to expect from us as two separate companies. Only now, we will have additional solutions to offer them and even more personal touch to deliver through one unified company,” said Yvette McKenzie, vice president of merchandising for ScanSource Communications and former vice president of merchandising for Paracon. “We are also looking forward to helping our vendor partners reach potential new customers by introducing their products to a customer base that may likely be untapped. It’s a win-win for all of us.”

The new management team of ScanSource Communications will consist of Phillips and McKenzie, as well as Mike Ferney, vice president of sales and Tod Vedock, vice president of business development. Clay Sorensen, former president of Paracon, remains with ScanSource, Inc. He will lead the development of several new corporate initiatives as the vice president of strategic development.
