SALT
LAKE CITY — September 1, 2009 — Harnessing the strength of their respective premium brands, CODi and FranklinCovey Products today announced a joint distribution agreement that will present each company's product solutions to a broader range of consumers this holiday season. Beginning October 2009, select CODi and FranklinCovey products will be sold through both company's Web sites, catalogs, and the CODi products through FranklinCovey's retail stores as well.

With an extensive line of products to help one achieve an organized life, the FranklinCovey brand pairs well with CODi, a leading provider of innovative and affordable laptop bags that simplify mobile life.
